Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2 Yankee Fans Labor Day Weekend Stay
We were greeted by a friendly desk clerk who aided in attending to our room accommodations.
The staff is very knowledgeable when we needed directions to area restaurants and shops.
We had a small issue with the fire detector in our room and that was promptly handed by the maintenance staff.
I will definitely make this Holiday Inn Express our place to stay in Toronto.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Family D great location
We enjoyed our stay at this property. The location is right beside Hwy. 400. The breakfast was very expensive which was appreciated over our 8 day stay. The beds and pillows were most comfortable. The staff in the breakfast and front desk were most professional and helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve57@WindsorCT Visit to Toronto
It's been 30 years since I was last in Toronto, decided to see if anything changed. I looked for a hotel outside of the downtown, but not too far outside. This location fit the bill. The hotel was right on the public transportation line, though we wound up driving when we went places (Toronto Zoo, Ontario Science Center and Rogers Center). The hotel was good (I've never had a bad experience at a Holiday Inn, yet). The staff was friendly, the property was well kept and the breakfast was good. The hotel was fairly full during our stay, which is a good sign. The location was convenient to the highways and there were a few good restaurants within a few miles. I would recommend The Fox and Fiddle, close by and the food and prices were good.
By the way, in 30 years, alot has changed, especially the traffic in Toronto!!

The staff was courteous and friendly......no problems checking in or out.....getting ice was a hassel as it is only at the very top or bottom of the hotel......overall though, this hotel has my recommendation.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jaye49 Unresponsive Front Desk and Room Not Clean
Urine on the pull out bed and the front desk did nothing.
Housekeeping would not deliver extra pillows and blankets until I asked many times.
Outside appearance looks like a new hotel, but rooms look worn and outdated. Stains on carpet and bathroom door would not close.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mikette49 Comfortable bed and cleanliness.
The beds were more comfortable than the mattresses at home. The room was clean, service was nice, and bathroom was refreshing - though more products like soap wouldn't hurt.
The TV could of used more channels and the parking lot needed more frontal parking space or a door in the rear of the Inn.
I would definitely recommend Holiday Inn Express to a friend for a great 'express' stay. I give it an 85-90%.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Larry P my last stay
I had stayed at another chain the day before and found this hotel very cramped. The road leading to the hotel was under construction and in a terrible condition
The room was very small for the 2 beds and this hotel does not have any suites unfortunately. the line for breakfast was ridiculously long and slow, causing you to pick your "stuff" and get out of there.

First room had a exhaust fan fail. The second room had no tv remote and one electrical receptacle was shorting out. Maintenance is not a priority at this hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by canadianustomer Broken furniture patronizing staff
We checked in for a two night stay only to find broken furniture and an odd smelling room. Staff was unwilling to replace the broken furniture but did offer another room which we did not take as it was inconvenient to repack our belongings and move two sleeping children. Hotel has rude front desk staff. No pool. We are not likely to stay at another Holiday Inn due to this experience

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hockey mom 17 Misguided reservation leads to disappointing special weekend.
I have stayed in numerous hotels over the years with various hockey teams and for business purposes and I have never had an experience like we recently had in booking for my son's special graduation gift weekend.
When calling the intercontinental (which I had stayed at in June on a business function) I was linked to a call centre where they advised that the intercontinental was booked for the weekend in question but they had additional properties that were close to our destination.
When asked how close we were advised within 10km, which in my book means 10 minutes- absolutely acceptable and we booked.
The day of my son's special weekend my husband and my son arrived only to find out that the hotel was 45-50 minutes away from Blue Jay Stadium and had to pay $100 each way for a taxi.
My son had just turned 19 and he wanted to be able to have a drink at the game with my husband and we specifically requested that it was important that they were within walking or taxi distance from the hotel. We were 100% misguided.
The root of the issue was mis-information provided at the time of booking from a representative from the call centre.
We were extremely disappointed in the fact that this happened when we were so clear on what was important to us as far as location.
My husband made it a fun weekend regardless but it was so disappointing to start the weekend of the way they did and with zero resolution.
We have never had an issue with Holiday Inn Express and I raved about my visit to the Intercontinental in June-Really quite unfortunate that my opinion has been significantly downgraded as a result.
My boys ended up not going to the Hockey Hall of Fame because it meant driving 50 minutes back into the City

We recently stayed here to attend the Rogers Cup (tennis tournament) as it was close to the Rexall Centre. We really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable and the continental breakfast was hot, tasty and plentiful. The staff (front desk and housekeeping) were phenomenal. We would stay here again.

Overall nice hotel. No pool so not very kid friendly. Location is in a busy section of town. Not very pretty but functional. 30 min bus ride to nearest subway.
Breakfast was impossible. Lineup for good was a good 30 min wait. No where to sit. Place was jammed. Had to eat at Tim Hortons

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express - North York during the 2014 Roger's Cup - ATP calendat event. I was within 2.1 km walking distance (~35 minutes). The room was nice, modern -- the included breakfast decent and the staff was courteous.

I chose this hotel from the Canada's Wonderland site. I misunderstood the information and thought the hotel provided a shuttle to Canada's Wonderland. Unfortunately this service was only offered to guests who purchased the Wonderland package. It unfortunately cost my son and his friend a lot of money in cabs for the 3 days that we were there. Transportation costs were my only issue with my stay here. Otherwise it was a great experience.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Guestonvacation Disappointed
Upon arrival we observed a couple in front of us waiting, we waited approximately 5 minutes for staff to finally come to the desk. The people in front of us had to shout to get the staffs attention.
The room we were given smelled of cigarette smoke and the air conditioner did not function properly.
It was late when we arrived, we unpacked upon arrival in the room and we had an early morning the next morning, we did not want to go through the hastle of heading back downstairs to wait again to see if it was possible to change rooms.
We were completely dissatisfied. My wife and I both woke up with sore throats from the smell of smoke in the morning. My wife complained that her eyes were irritated from the smell as she just had lasik completed.
My wife and I aren't ones to complain, we have stayed in numerous hotels and have never had to write a negative review.
In the morning when we complained to guest services they said, "Oh, you should have told us earlier, someone must have been smoking in the room the night before you had it because it was a long weekend..." Why did the maids not do something about this before the room was given to us?
Just an overall poor experience from a hotel chain we thought we could trust.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gallerie No real complaints!
The Holiday Inn Express is excellent overall. The staff was very helpful except for one who had no interest in helping us get directions (media printer down both days we were there) and the guy that was helping us with printer and said he would be back and never returned. Besides that, no matter how many different sets of directions were needed everyone else was happy to do it and with a smile. Breakfast was a great buffet, not your typical cereal and bagel but eggs, sausage, cereal and milk, Greek yogurt, pancakes, fresh fruit, coffee and orange juice and I can't remember everything else. There was not a refrigerator in the room. Beds were comfortable and loved the fact that there were soft and firm pillows on the bed.

Thank you to the staff for a wonderful couple of days at your hotel! Right from the moment we walked in the hotel until when we left we were extremely well taken care of. Any questions or requests we had were taken care of quickly and efficiently. Breakfast satisfied all the needs of our family offering great variety! It was a great way to start our day! Even though the hotel is older it is very clean and comfortable. I would not hesitate to stay here again and would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family. Thanks again!
