The Lobby was very welcoming and wonderful. The staff accommodated very well, and treated greatly on priorty club members.
when i arrived in my room, the ac in the wall sounded like an exhaust fan. the fan speeds did not change even when i hit auto, low med or high. the temperature i could not get cool enough in the room even though it was set to the lowest it can go.
the rest of the room was very comfortable.

i've stayed in hotels in the area for a few years now, and i find this Holiday Inn as my favourite mostly because of the location to the congress center, the price, and the staff. even after all these years, the staff still remember me, and i feel so welcome as a result. they are very nice and helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stephanie86 More then expected!
I was so happy with this hotel you have no idea! Check in was fast, friendly, and easy. I went through a whole maze to get to my room but once i found it, it turns out i was literally a walk down the stairs to get in and out of the hotel. What blew me away was when i opened my room door, it was i swear the biggest hotel room i had seen! This was perfect for me! It was so spacious and clean!! I am so going back next year!
My only downside to this was when i asked the night before about having a possible extension for check out (i needed to just come back sometime after checkout for a a shower and get my luggage) i was told they wouldn't know until morning if it was possible. So i called in the morning and they said there was no way it was possible since they promised rooms to others the night before. Either they should have accepted me as i DID ask the night before or if it was already full, they should have just told me no when i had originally asked.
Other then that one problem which wasn't a huge deal (i cut my schedule down to make it back in time to shower and i just loaded my luggage earlier and left the van parked as we can use the lot until 6) I was very pleased with the hotel and it's service during a very busy time of the year and i look forward to my stay again next year :)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Good hotel to stay during Anime North Convention
The title says it all. Conveniently located near the convention. Good rates. Nice staff. Cleaning staff was very caring and made sure we had extra towel for the next days since there was only 3 set of towels in our room and we were 4 persons. However, I do not recommend the affiliated restaurant Perkin's. Our waitress was rude and they made a fuss when we asked for a separated bill.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great Hotel - Bad Restaurant
Toronto-Airport East is great hotel for someone on a budget. The rooms aren't fancy but they are well maintained, clean and comfortable. They help you stretch your dollar and in today's economy that is very good thing!
There are only a couple of things that aren't perfect at the Toronto-Airport East. The first is the curtains, we couldn't figure out how to close them. I actually thought that it was designed to stay open and decided to leave it at that, but it turns out that it does close but is very tricky. This is something so minor yet it colors your experience - why would you want someone to watch you change? And with our position near the pool's windows - well if they wanted to you they could possibly see in. I would suggest that they change this curtains ASAP!!!
The final thing is Perkins. The food is cheap & good but the service is horrible!!! It is slow. Waiters often forget you and your glass as you eat then take forever to bring the check. I think it is an issue with not hiring enough staff. The times I went there it was packed and only one or two people where waiting tables. NOT GOING TO WORK!!!
This is has to change. This is part of my experience at Toronto-Airport East - shouldn't it be good? Shouldn't it make me want to come back? I am not a hundred percent sure I do.

With the modern know how, hotel should add extra sound insulating windows or sound insulated curtains to cut the noise of planes. and/ or add extra enveople of sound insulated roof.
Hotel gusets promised parking included when booking can expect parking chargesadded to their bill. Thoug later on, clerk was able to reverse it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rebandred Pleasant stay
We have stayed at this hotel many times and have always been satisfied with the quality of the facilities, the friendliness of the staff, the proximity to a variety of restaurants (we are not fans of Perkins), and the overall value for the cost.
Recs: glasses instead of plastic, and cups instead of paper glasses. Ice on first floor.

The staff at the Holiday Inn were just fantastic. I stay at many hotels in Ontario and Canada and the staff from the front desk to the cleaniing staff were truly amazing. They go out of their way to make sure your stay is is of great value

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sparky23 Good room, terrible shuttle service and staff assistance
The room was exactly what I expected given that I often stay at holiday inns during business travel. This was the first time I used the park and shuttle service and stayed at this hotel and I will not be doing it again. The shuttle was not even close to being on time based on the schedule provided by the staff. When I called the hotel to get clarification regarding the times and location of the shuttle pickup the woman hung up on me. During my wait for the shuttle I saw the competitors shuttles come by twice each, making me regret the choice to go with holiday inn further.
I stay at the priority club brand hotels 25-30 days/year mostly for business (I spend 90-100 nights a year in hotels for business). This trip was for leisure travel and I chose this hotel due to the consistently good experience I have had with this brand in my business travels. It's a shame that the staff don't value my personal travel business as much as my business travel, another brand will be getting my personal business on my next leisure trip.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wildastro good value and solid as airport hotels go
We were just staying overnight (late check-in) for an early-morning flight from Toronto Pearson to LAX (we live 110 km from the airport) but found this hotel to be slightly-above-average for its price and relatively quiet. Room was tasteful and decently maintained and wake-up-call/check-out/airport shuttle went smoothly. We would book again next time we grab a hotel before an early flight.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Victoria49 Not the same as other Holiday Inns
We have stayed in several Holiday Inns & this one we would not come back to...
The bathrooms were smallest of any Holiday Inns we have stayed at, let alone any other Hotel...
No bar fridge or microwave in this HI...as there is in other Holiday Inns we have stayed at.....
Yes, there is a restaurant....but one of the reasons we stay at a HI is because of the great free breakfast they offer...
It is very nice to have a restaurant available for 3 meals..but I would suggest a breakfast chit for those staying at the Hotel...$10.00/ person ....anything above that, the customer would pay...
One of the night staff..did not make us feel welcome...did not receive a small being a Priority Member & not address by my name...& she did seem, she did not want to be there....

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cvm1 goofy parking
To be charged $28.00 a day for parking is criminal. Half the time you cannot find a spot.Not even a mention of Platinum status.
Stay at the Holiday Inn up the road, room was $5 more parking free for Platinum members. Nicer hotel actually staff at the front desk.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rafiki325 Great service and very helpful
We stayed at the Holiday Inn before and after our trip south. The front desk was very helpful with 'park and stay' suggestions for before and after. Those suggestions saved us money in the long run. The accommodations were great and very comfortable. Accessible to many food outlets.

Stayed here twice during the past six weeks. My wife has a history of back surgery and she found the bed most comfortable on both occasions. Next door to the Park N''Fly is a real asset for long term parking.. Staff were very accommodating in giving us a room close to the main lobby because of my wife's condition.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by marq7 SERVICE To be improved
I had a bad experience with the personnel and services.
When I called from a remote location the hotel front desk for help in order to get a taxi, I was told they can not help me to call a taxi on my behalf neither they gave me a taxi phone number to call. After many arguments and three calls the personnel at the front desk finally agreed to call one taxi for me. While I was waiting for this taxi, just next door from the Pearson int'l airport terminal 3 where there are several taxis waiting in line, after 20 min. waiting without any taxi at the door, I had to walk outside in the winter to the terminal without any winter coat on me.
Once arrived at the hotel, the two ladies who refused to help me had nothing to say to mitigate the situation. I had to call the manager to explain her the situation where she understood this service was not acceptable. Nevertheless I was not offered any compensation for this bad service.
In regards with room condition, I can say the heater fan was noisy that woke us up all night long.
In regards with the remaining room condition that was OK but no more, eventhough the bathroom was so small that once into it we could not close the door. So that became pretty friendly.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Vic93 Would find somewhere else to stay
I was not impressed by this hotel. The check-in line was long although there were three people behind the desk, only one was checking individuals in. When I had booked my room, there were not king beds available so had a queen but I noticed that others were able to upgrade to a king room who were behind me in line. During the check-in process, my visa card was not returned. I did not realize this until I went to pay for another item a few hours later. I returned to the desk and the individual at the desk stated it was not returned since I left the desk before she had completed the check-in process. This was not the case - I left when she was finished with me, I even asked about where I could park before she called the next client to begin their check in process. They should have taken responsiblity for the error. The room was fine, although it might have been recently updated, there were marks, dents, damage to the walls that looked like had just been wallpapered over. It was not mentioned that I was a priority club member or informed of the services available at the hotel as a result.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lucie Adequate
It took quite a while to get checked in as there was only one person on the desk (9 p.m.) and the staff member was constantly interrupted by the phone ringing and he answered it each time. The room was adequate for a one night stay. I did find that the shuttle to the airport was quite quick and was on time however the shuttle returning was a long wait - almost an hour - which was frustrating as it was very cold and we watched the shuttle from the 970 Dixon Road location circle twice in this time frame and each time that driver would say 'he's right behind me'. Apparently, he was a long way behind him!! The other negative was that the hallway going to our room had a strong tobacco smoke odor however it was not noticeable in the room.
Biggest plus was that the cost was about the same as the Park N Fly and we didn't have to drive in the same day for an early flight.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ShawneeKS Beware of the Smoke Detectors
Power outage, was told not the hotel's fault, around 3am. Smoke detector began to "LOUDLY" chirp. Pulled the battery at 3:30am. Tried to sleep, just fell asleep around 4:30am, power restored and smoke detector began to chirp again, no battery. Tried to reinsert, decided to just get up and shower. Front desk really could have cared less about my experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MizAstley Time before late flight
My daughter was travelling to Australia on a 6:00 p.m. Flight. We live in Collingwood and I don't drive so we went down to Toronto the day before to get some last minute Mum-Daughter time. Our room was clean and bright with good amenities and spacious bathroom. We enjoyed the well-priced room service menu for dinner and breakfast the following morning. The staff were friendly and helpful when we needed assistance.
I would definitely stay at this Holiday Inn again. There are two on this particular road and this one is not as prominent as the other, however I liked it better probably because it had less of the 'party' minded guest and more of the 'business'/overnight type guest.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CL1234 Shuttle service
After waiting out side airport terminal for 35 mins and seeing all the other hotel shuttles pass by decided to jump in a cab. When I arrived at the hotel, I was informed of the change of services from every 15 min to every 40min.. No sorry for the inconvenience or anything. Terrible customer service.

The description on the website promises a memorable experience:
"our newly renovated guest rooms with warm décor and modern furnishings – you’ll see and experience the difference at the new Holiday Inn Toronto Airport East from the moment you arrive"
Really ? I checked in to find an airconditioning unit that was so noisy it could be heard down the hall, reception said there were no other rooms, eventually they found me a small cupboard, that definitley had not been renovated. dirty, smelly & old.
The attached restaurant is also pretty poor, slow service from disinterested staff & mediocre food.
The food was so poor, I took my chance at the local Tim Hortons for breakfast the next day.
Much sympathy from the check-out staff , but precious little else.
Would I stay here again ?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Robstg Pleasant experience:
As with all my stays at any Holiday Inn, the staff were courteous and friendly. The room was quite nice (King Standard). But, as others have remarked, the climate control leaves you wanting. I first notice the overly warm hallway as I stepped out of the elevator (4th floor). The room was almost as hot when I opened the door for the first time. I immediately turned on the thermostat and lowered the temperature to 20 C. In my two night stay, the temperature never really lowered. This made my stay a little uncomfortable, but not enough to complain to the front desk. Next time, I will request a "colder" room. Perhaps not on the 4th floor?
