Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mcma standard bkfst fare, great staff
We booked the Holiday Inn Express because it had a free hot breakfast. It was the standard breakfast you'd expect if you've stayed at a Holiday Inn Express before - convenient and good enough to start your day, but nothing to write home about.
We were surprised as all of the staff (front desk, cleaning, shuttle driver, etc) exceeded our expectations, being friendly and helpful.
The shower pressure wasn't great (it was fine, but not fantastic) but the toilets had strong flushing power, which, although you may not wish to consider it, is important when staying for more than a day.
There were no problems with either the fitness room or pool area, plenty of towels each time we used either area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Phil65 Great one night while visiting Carleton U
Location great, a few minutes from school. New building. Had a suite which was very spacious and clean with all you need for a easant stay.
I stayed on points, I think if I had paid the going rate I would have rated value as ok...
Definitely worth a stay...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ONTraveller Terrible Night Sleep
I booked early before my stay and arrived around 5:00 pm to the hotel. I was given room 201 beside the mechanical room. I thought nothing of being beside this mechancial room and went into the room. The room seemed fine at first and I put on the a/c to cool the room abit. When I decided to turn off the light and a/c to go to sleep, there was a terrible loud noise coming from the adjacent mechanical room. It got so bad I had to turn the a/c back on to drown out the noise. Needless to say I had a terrible night sleep and was very tired in the morning. The hotel was fully booked so no other room would have been available. Upon checking out the next day, the clerk did not ask me how my stay was. I would have told him my experience. The hotel is nice but make sure you ask not to be put anywhere near any non hotel rooms.
