Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OilsandsMgr Airport shuttle can be an issue
Was a little suprised when I asked for a free shuttle ride to YEG's Terminal 3 when the desk clerk said she would "call me a taxi". I then incurred a $12 taxi charge there and much to my suprise that when I finally arrived at Terminal 3 (in the taxi) I see the shuttle bus just leaving T3 dropping off HIE guests.

I stayed there on 2 separate occasions last week. On way in to Edmonton, room was in new tower, clean and comfy. However a silk bathrobe left there by mistake was not found when I returned for a second night, five days later. Disappointing.... The second time we were in the older tower and I found the room very dark. The worst part as the filthy pool and hot tub (closed because the water was so dirty!). Really, this should have been attended to.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by FlyingHigh Construction Zone!
I'm sure that one day this will be a nice property, but currently there is so much construction going on that there is no way you would fine this property attractive. I had stayed for 7 days and required shuttling back and forth to the airport for business. Nothing like arriving with mud on your shoes from boarding the shuttle bus.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Frosty2013 Great room
Parked the vehicle and stayed one night. To park it was 5 per day and the night stayed free. Shuttle ride to and from the airport also great . The only problem was we arrived at 1:00 am and over slept went down for breakfast at 9:15 on weekend but breakfast hours are 6:00 to 9:00 am I think weekend hours should be extended to 10:00.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chasos Holiday Inn Express (HIE) is my 'go to' hotel
not that i'm a constant traveller, however, if and when I do my first choice is to see if there is a HIE available. I think just about everyone in my family does the same. HIE hires the best staff who are welcoming, helpful and awfully friendly ... always feels like you are 'going home' when booking HIE. keep up the good work!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sleeplessinedmonton Loud room off lobby
When I checked in, I was given a room right off the lobby. I asked if I could change my room and the front desk staff was not very nice or accommodating... I found them to be rude. Since I am a points customer, I was hoping that I would be welcoming better than I was. I was very disappointed. I heard every sound from the lobby especially when breakfast was served.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MSPed Cold and No Internet
This is a decent hotel. When I walked into my room it felt like a refrigerator. The AC had been set very low. Also, the internet would drop out every few minutes. Other guests had complained about this too. The internet provider was called by staff in the morning, but it had not been resolved prior to my checkout. Everything else was ok.

Good friendly comfortable room, just that there is little choice of restaurants/eateries within the walking distance. Ric Restaurant in nearby W Hotel is pretty decent

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dolphonrod Great room..... but disappointed for lack of communication
My family and I stayed at Holiday Inn Express on August 22 during a drive from Calgary to Northern Alberta. We had pre-booked this hotel solely based on the fact that they had a nice pool and a water slide, which our 7 year old son looked forward to using. When we arrived there, the room was great, the hotel was clean..... but the desk clerk informed us the pool and waterslide was closed with no explanation. If we wanted to use a pool.... we would have to go offsite to another hotel further up the street and not within walking distance. While everything else was good with this hotel.... this detail was a MAJOR disappointment.... especially since the pool had been closed for some time and not communicated to us prior to arrival. Try explaining a pool and waterslide closure to an excited 7 year old after a long day of driving. We were NOT impressed........ especially since this hotel was ABOVE the price of all surrounding hotels and we had booked it solely for its pool and waterslide for our son.

After three years of staying at the facility on a quarterly schedule I find seldom do any of the advertised amenities work right down to the drinking fountain.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by velcro1949 Great Room/Staff
Due to renovations, no parking near the hotel, which was inconvenient and uncomfortable (parking was quite a hike). Pool was not in service. Would have been nice to know, since this a factor that we took into consideration when booking after flying in from a vacation. Will not likely book this location again until renovations are complete.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rmorgan86 Eraly flights are easiest with the YEG Holiday Inn Express
I choose the Edmonton Airport Holiday Inn Express every time I have to overnight prior to catching the early flight to Eastern Canada. Being able to wake only minutes from the airport is a wonderful convenience and reduces the stress of travel.
The Inn provides consistent value and all of the comfort one has come to expect at Holiday Inns and their sister properties.
The added feature of the airport shuttle running every 20 minutes, following a great, complimentary breakfast and much-needed coffee is something I have come to rely on.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JPow Broke Down Pool
I booked the room so that after a long trip my children could swim in the pool and i could relax in the hot tub, but surprise when i arrive they are shut down, they offer to send you to a neighbour hotel on a shuttle?? Really, no thanks they should have an advisory on the website and then i wouldn't have booked there. Great location for the airport though, but if you are looking for information, apparently there are times the front desk is not manned. The room itself was clean and comfortable.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brian29082013 Not the best hotel location to get sleep but could have been given a quite room, as requested.
I asked for a quite room and was put as close to the airport runway as possible and the worse was being right next to the railway line outside my window. Not sure what quite means to hotel staff but this was the worse stay I have ever had at a Holiday Inn and I have been a Platinum member for over 10 years, so I travel quite a bit and stay at only HIG hotels, but will never be back at this one. The cost was also very high compaired to other airport hotels.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ourfamilytime Clean and comfortable room
The hotel was easy to find. The room itself was VERY clean and comfortable BUT a drawback is the hotel is right beside the train tracks. The airconditioner was too loud - opended the window for fresh air and almost had a heart attack when the train came by blowing the whistle. They are renovating to make the hotel newer and nicer but there is drywall dust in the halls and rolls of carpets and debris everywhere. NOT a place to stay if you have allergies to dust - wait until the renos are done. Over all very clean room and great breakfast selection. Would stay again AFTER renos and not on the side facing the tracks.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JimB2013 Worst stay at a Holiday Inn
Our stay did not go well. When checking in
We were told where our room was, they just
failed to mentioned they were not numbered.
So after a trip back to desk informed where room
was located and guessed which room by it
being the one the key worked. Then at 11:45
someone tried to get in our room. When I asked
If I could do something for then, they gasped
someone is in there. Then at 12:15 there was
a terrible racket like a cart with 4 squeaky
wheels going up and down hall. Then again
at 4:20 in the morning. We had to get up at
5 to catch our plane. So this stay was not good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SeekerFor One business day in and out!
I had one day in Edmonton at a business meeting. Flew in Saturday morning and out Sunday morning! Chose this hotel based on reviews. Couldn't of picked a better hotel. Fully lived up to it's positive reviews. Yes they had refurbishing going on but nothing was in my way everything was neat and tidy. They couldn't of been working on the weekend as it was totally quite!
Staff was excellent and helpful! Priority Club members are recognized!
The parking lot going around back has a rough spot and the heavy curtains in the room I was in were not designed to close. The staff quickly and happily offered to change my room but I stayed in it as the king bed was very comfy and the room was clean!
I definitely believe I received my value for dollar spent.
And it being 4 minutes from the airport is superb! I would not hesitate to stay there again or to recommend it to others!

The parking lot was rough and bumpy, the elevator was out for 1 day and the first floor construction made it difficult to get through the lobby.
ANd the exits and stairs and elevators need to be marked more clearly with signs, it was so confusing.
