Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by IngridPo Great experience!
We had driven to Dryden from Sudbury, it was 8:30p.m. when we arrived and still needed a bit to eat! The young lady at the reception desk was very helpful and friendly, and check-in went very quick and smooth! Then she asked if we needed to eat yet, and when I said yes, she told me that they still had some soup and crackers left in the dining room and we could go and help ourselves!! Well, I could have hugged her, I was so grateful to not have to go out again and not have to eat fast-food that late in the evening!!
The overall experience was great and would definitely recommend this hotel as a great stopping-off place!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pauli240 Great hotel with everything you need
I stay at this location regularly and have found the staff are very friendly and accommodating. Check-in is quick and efficient. Rooms are always clean and comfortable. This location provides courtesy soup, crackers and cheese daily after 5 pm and a great breakfast in the morning with many items to choose. A friendly staff member is on hand in the morning for breakfast to provide assistance if required. A newly installed elevator provides easy access to 2nd floor. I have also used the pool and cardio room which are always clean with towels available. Rooms are provided with USB outlet for easy computer hook-up.
As part of my work, I stay at various hotels throughout Ontario and have found this hotel to be the best. It is obvious that the staff and management have put plenty of thought and planning into customer service. They are commend for a job well done.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by flyingnun Great stay!
We had an awesome stay overnight at Dryden. After a long day of driving the swimming pool and steam room were greatly appreciated. The beds were so comfortable that we slept in and almost missed the full breakfast! But we did get to eat and enjoyed the variety and the service.Thanks to all the staff at the Holiday Inn Express in Dryden.

I was astonished that we received only one chocolate for two people when we arrived. What is this? Two waters, but one chocolate....hmmmm. Just didn't make sense to me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Firehawk110 Just what I expected
I stay at a lot of HIE's and this was like the rest. You know what you're getting and don't get shocked to find something out of the ordinary. My only (minor) complaint is that the breakfast items could have been served warmer than they were. Room was clean and comfortable and rooms were very quiet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DGC320 Recommend this Holiday Inn Express
I have been staying in this hotel for over 9 years now. I have seen many upgrades and improvements. I have always found the staff to be respectful, professional and very accommodating when I call at the last minute for a room. I would definitely recommend this hotel. They do an excellent job of making you feel at home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Karjar358 Very Nice, great staff and breakfast
Only drawback is slightly noisy room fan, which if turned off left the room too hot given outside temperatures, and not great sleep if left on. but otherwise very nice.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Marie163 Rather unkept premises detract from experience.
I feel management needs to coordinate with staff better.
Housekeeping kept knocking at our door well before check-out. It seems like a list of parties who had checked out could be passed to the housekeepers.
On the way down the hall one had a full view of a dishevelled, cluttered office area - detracting from the overall ambience of the place.
The pool is adjacent to the breakfast area overwhelming the aroma of cooking waffles with chlorine.
The basics are there: good bed, quiet, safe, attentive front desk.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cheswick Probably the nicest hotel in Dryden
The room was very nice. Comfortable bed. Only complaint about the actual room is the shower which was made for people under 5'9. And the lack of finishing where the shower head went into the wall. Just went into a hole. Minor complaint but made an otherwise lovely bathroom look lower class.
They advertise their hot breakfast but personally wasnt really impressed. It's pretty much a continental breakfast with next to inedible eggs or sausage available.
The staff was perfectly adequate. Wouldn't have hurt the girl who checked us in to give a smile. Just one. Not that she was obertly rude but not particularly friendly.
One night when we were trying to get to sleep we could hear people in the room next to us talking. Didn't seem like they were yelling either. So the sound deadening between rooms isn't that great but it was only that one time when we could hear anything
Overall I'd recommend the holiday inn if you are planning a stay in Dryden. All the complaints we had were minor

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Suetrip good experience
The motel was attractive and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast selection was very complete and tasty. We certainly appreciated the hot soup at 5:00 p.m. as it was a chilly, dull day and the soup warmed us up. We noted that the pool look inviting and was well used.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Miller20 Great Stay
My family and friends have been staying at this Holiday Inn Express for more years than I can remember when we come to Canada for our annual fishing trip. It is alway inviting, friendly and comfortable after having traveled for 12 hours on the first day of our vacation. In the morning we enjoy a great breakfast with friendly service that maintains us until we reach our final destination several hours later. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling through Dryden. And I intend to reserve next years stay as soon as I finish this review.
Enjoy, you will not be disappointed.
A very happy guest!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shirlgirl Peaceful and very comfortable beds...but!
We truly did enjoy our stay at your hotel. I had just come of a week of excessive hours of work and was exhausted. The beds were excellent as was the bedding. My only disappointment was, both mornings we were there (Saturday & Sunday) the house keeping woke us and no doubt everyone else within a 8 room radius when she came to each door announcing "Housekeeping" in an extremely LOUD voice. I understand the need for the house keeping staff to get their work done, but really at 7:50 Sat & Sun morning. Other than that it was a wonderful stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SlimEsto Good room upgrade provided.
When I travel as a Platinum member I am most pleased with the upgrades that I am provided through the IHG Group. My visit to Dryden was no different and I appreciated the service and room allocated for the night. The breakfast was slow since the hot items were gone and I had to wait for the next batch. That was the only drawback to otherwise another wonderful visit to the Holiday Inn Express in Dryden.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 3jcc14 Nice rooms, pricey, average staff
The rooms are very nice and clean. The Holiday Inn Express is the newest hotel in Dryden (about 12-15 years old now) and tends to charge the most out of the hotels in Dryden. Staff are somewhat courteous but sometimes you feel like you are interrupting and inconveniencing them if you have to talk with them to check-in, ask for a possible late checkout and checking-out itself.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Candyce1 Holiday Inn Express Dryden, Ontario
I stay here for business and it is always a great stay. The hotel staff are super friendly and always willing to offer assistance with anything. Nice, clean comfortable rooms. If there is any issue ( like a slow drain sink) just notify the front desk and they will take care of it, Breakfast is good and offers a number of choices above some otherplaces that have yesterdays donuts. Great place to stay for work because of this and would also be great for thoise early travellers that ned to get moving. The hotel also offers hot soup or chili/ cheese and crakers at 5:30 if you just need something light. Once it is gone though it is gone so if you do want this you need to get in before 6. Coffee is usually always available as well. There is a pool which has recently been renovated ( I have not used) /. work out area which is good should one have time which I have done on occasion.I just like it there.
