Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Heather S clean and efficient
the hotel was very clean - despite being at major highway intersection. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Housekeeping staff were especially helpful to assist with special requests. Pool and fitness centre were "ok" for a quick treadmill escape and a dip,; my only critical statement is that the versitile weight machine lacked good instructions for use. Good value for money.

This is a great place to stay to the point that I have become a regular patron.
This is because of the staff. I am always greeted with passion.
Jay is a great person to have on the front desk, he always lights up the environment when checking in.
The rest of the staff are great and do a super job in making a traveller feel at home.
A great place to stay.
The rooms are always in excellent condition.
Worth a visit.

I keep coming back to this Holiday Inn Express because of the great service. Thanks Halley and Deanna, (sorry if I misspelled your names).
The morning breakfast is also a cheery atmosphere thanks to Donna.
Appreciate the great service and pleasant atmosphere!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NMCal Good staff, bad rooms
I'm not sure how it is even possible to properly clean a room and not notice the sink is clogged. We arrived in the room and upon running the faucet to wash hands, it was apparent the sink would not drain. We left the sink for a few to see if it was just slow... In order to brush our teeth, the sink had to be bailed into the commode. By morning, the water was still stagnant in the sink. The staff were quite pleasant and polite at check-in.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by UnrulyNeighboursNextDoor Nice Hotel, Unruly Guests
The hotel was clean, our room was neat and orderly. Unfortunately my daughter and I were put in an adjoining room to a Hockey Tournament and that is the room that the Parents selected for the kids party. I called security twice. Security did come and speak to the parents and after the second call the party was moved to another room. I appreciate that hotel staff did what they could; however, my stay was less than pleasant and I got very little sleep that night due to the unruly and thoughtless patrons.

Thank you for hosting our visiting hockey team. Your staff are always friendly and helpful. We were happy with our rooms (neat and clean), the kids loved the pool and having the breakfast room for one evening where the kids could watch a movie and the adults sit and relax, was great.
I was personally impressed with the staff who ran the breakfast room -- they kept it well stocked of all items during the very busy times and with a smile--great service: Thank you!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Annie John Disappointment...
Very disappointed and surprised by the fact that there were no cots available. I didn't even think to consider this "amenity" as I have never encountered a hotel or even a motel that did not offer cots. We had to purchase an air mattress from the local Canadian Tire so that my 9 year old son did not have to sleep with his 13 year old sister. I was also surprised to learn that room movie rentals were not available. We stayed 2 overnights and upon return to our room the 2nd night our TV converter was missing. We called down to reception and an alternate was promptly replaced. Shortly thereafter, we found the original converter tucked beneath the layers of sheets of our newly made bed. If a refund had been an option we would have sought out alternate accommodation in the area. Maybe all Holiday Inn Express locations are like this- disappointing to say the least. All rooms are equipped with clothing irons and ironing boards- I would suggest that the cost is better spent on having the option for cots
(which always have an additional cost attached) and movie rentals which would be much more lucrative.

Everyone had a good attitude during the ice storm and the aftermath. The internet was not working yet, and I saw people complaining about other things. To bad, the folks there did great during this difficult and busy time.
Breakfast is always the same and average, at best, at all Holiday Inn Express in North America. These folks did great working on the Holidays with what they are provided with to serve.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by imillard Consistantly excellent quality
We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, while waiting for our furniture to arrive at our new home. The service was excellent and the room was first-rate: very clean, quiet and comfortable. All the amenities worked just fine.
Lot's of people whine about the internet. We stayed there because it was a hotel - not an internet cafe. We had no trouble with the wireless or wired connections, and the speed was fine for email and browsing regular sites.
When we checked in the girl at the desk explained the internet was undergoing upgrades, and we know the speeds in the Bowmanville area are poor because much of the infrastructure is so old.
But the hotel is new and the staff were always helpful and courteous, and that's what matters. Breakfast was wonderful, and the complimentary newspaper was a pleasant surprise.
We have stayed at this chain during our travels throughout Ontario & Quebec, and we highly recommend the Holiday Inn Express because they consistently deliver excellent quality and service.

The size of the room was great especially with little ones who could have room to play and run. Sofa bed very comfortable as well as two queen size beds. The breakfast opened earlier than 7 as we had early morning hockey games and it was delicious.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Over all stay good but.....
...two negatives the first not a biggy but annoying. I have stayed in hotels in every province in Canada from moderate to high end. Without a doubt this hotel had the slowest elevator service I've ever experienced. Like I said not a biggy but just a pain.
My second peeve is both annoying and affects my job. By far the slowest internet service (hard wired because wireless was not offered) I have ever experienced in a hotel over the last few years. This is a brand new hotel so not sure what's going on but the internet is a must have on the road for both personal and business related reasons. As an example I stayed in a remote small village inn in the centre of Sardinia this past summer and their internet was "super" fast. For me although the room, cleanliness, staff assistance etc was top notch I will not be staying at this location unless the internet service improves (dramatically!!!).

After a delay with the closing of our home, we needed to find somewhere in Clarington that would accommodate our family and pets. After reading some unpleasant reviews online for other hotels in the area we came across very positive reviews for the Holiday Inn Express. We found the staff to be polite and helpful, and found the rooms to be clean and comfortable. Our kids enjoyed the pancake machine and swimming pool very much! The reception staff went above and beyond our expectations and went so far as finding room for our giant moving truck. Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express made a stressful weekend much more enjoyable than we would have hoped! Thanks very much to your wonderful staff!

Extremely courteous and respectful staff; i.e., kitchen, front desk, housekeeping and managers. The rooms that I've been assigned are clean and comfortable. Hotel location is very convienent. Front desk staffer (Haillee# in the evenings is very knowledgeable and helpful. Friendly kitchen staffer #Donna). Breakfast is adequate and sufficient for me.

No complaints with the hotel or staff at this hotel. The room was clean, as were the common areas of the hotel.
The only issue may be the availability of some of the warm items at breakfast. (when I went down, there was no bacon and/or sausages...so I just grabbed a coffee and juice and left)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DisappointedParent Team Bookings
I have to say that I was quite disappointed in our stay. When we travel as a team, it would be nice to be able to stay together. This past weekend, our novice team was dispersed amongst the four different floors. This was the first away tournament for our team, which should have been a time for more team bonding. A huge part of the tournament experience is the time that the children get to spend together while hanging out between games. This proved to be a difficult task seeing that we were not in close proximity to any of our teammates. Teams are a major revenue for hotels. I can say that I will look at other hotels before booking a team at the Holiday Inn again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BusinessTraveler123456789 No Internet
I used this hotel for business travel, and I expect to have internet access in my room for work purposes. The wireless connection was not working. I was instructed by the front desk to use the ethernet connection. The ethernet connection was far too slow to use. I consider internet access a basic amenity for a business traveler. This hotel is relatively expensive compared to the other hotels in the area, and I will most likely choose a different hotel based on this experience. I simply am paying too much not to have internet.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Syldrum Confortable but must check well
Bed was perfect, room clean but bathroom fan was unacceptably noisy, took my shower without light to keep it quiet. I had the room 401, wifi was good but internet by itself almost not working!
Bathroom sink was blocked. When I told that to the office they clearly doesn't seems to care, not even a "sorry sir". Breakfast was acceptable but not fancy. Overall, I was really desapointed and I hope for them I was just not lucky enough....
