Had a wonderful stay. The room was tastefully decorated and the beds very comfortable. Love the modern upbeat look to the guest rooms and public areas.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Anishinaabe Pool not child friendly
Manager informs me that my 6 yr old son and are to stay else other than the this property.
When booking this and other stays , I look at the advertisement for the hotel and still advertises a heated " which it's not and confirmed by staff" and the advertisement does not mention anywhere that the "pool is not child friendly".
All other holiday inn properties have always addressed any concerns - and not once ever asked to stay else where like the delta or water tower .
Not only disappointed but very upset that mt 6?yr old son where asked to stay else where - therefore assume that my 6 yr old son and I not welcome - maybe will advise all my colleagues, peers, hockey and baseball parents also players about my experience

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mr. C. Great staff and pleasant experience
We entered Sault Ste. Marie from the USA and located the hotel with little trouble. I was very pleased with my first impression and it was located close to banking facilities. The desk staff was always friendly and helpful. Breakfast was better than I expected and overall we enjoyed our stay very much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frank & Barb Excellent accommodations!
Everything was positive, including the sunset view toward the river. The room was beautiful, clean, and we lacked for nothing. Breakfast choices were many and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and increased it by another day! Directions for sights, meals were accurate and right on target! Staff was very helpful in assisting us with accommodations for the next night of our trip.
We received no special consideration as Priority Club Members, other than points, which was surprising.

The suite was so relaxing and very nicely furnished. The pictures on the website did not fully capture how nice the room was. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mokey13 Didn't like my first review I will try again
- checked in earlier in the eveining than normal
- I have stayed at the property since new
- I had obviously interrupted a deep conversation between the two gals behind the desk.
- as a gold club verging on platitnum status I have been loyal to the Holiday Inn brand.
- They staff on that night were verging on anoid with the fact that I had come in when I did.
- I had asked if there were any king rooms available and was responded with a grumble "we only have a few".
- makes me want to return back to my previous hotel of choice.
- the normal fella that does late nights is awesome and these gals need to shadow him for attitude or take happy pills.
Let's see if this gets posted.

Very nice hotel, clean, inviting lobby, comfortable room, and great breakfast area. Only negative comment, we had the room off the back alley and had workers talking outside our window in the evenings and were awakened by garbage collection in the morning!
Food for the conference was excellent!

The room was quiet - I loved having bath & body works products in the bathroom! We were there for a conference and the dinner and lunches were outstanding. Did not go away hungry! When we arrived, we looked for places to eat - the staff was most helpful. It was among my top stays at any hotel!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chris383 Great stop over
We were traveling thru from Toronto to Thunder Bay and this was a good stop for over night. As we arrived ,were greeted by the front desk service was great fast and full of info.
The room was clean and large. The pool and whirlpool were very clean and a good way to relax after driving for 7 hours.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Coach Chris Very Kind & Considerate Staff/ Fantastic Location
I have stayed at H.I.Express S.S.M. on several occasions. Each visit has been pleasant and close to perfect. Hotel Renovation was very well done!
Location is the best in SSM. Mall across the street, Essar Center Arena right next door.
In the Summer you can rent bicycles (I think the name of the shop is Algoma Cycle?) and bike the entire waterfront. You can follow the St-Mary's River up to the locks, passing several historical plaques & locations along the way. The trail then proceeds under the International Bridge for panoramic views of Lake Superior.
Casino is an easy 10 to 12 min. walk from Hotel.
The only downfall is no Casino Shuttle ( taxis are a long wait after midnight) .But you only really need a ride in Very Bad Weather other wise walking is the way to go....
Front Desk Staff were extremely helpful and even suggested some Amazing Restaurant options within walking distance. We chose Solo Trattoria and were very pleased.
They accomodated us during a very large Hockey Tournament and did an amazing job.
Cleaning and Maintenance Staff were very Diligent!
Fantastic Job !!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fossil65 Great hotel
This hotel converted nicely to a Holiday Inn. It is conveniently located for my uses. The staff and manager Dave did a wonderful job to accommodate me on my last stay with our grandchildren. Normally I'm there alone on business. If I had a negative comment it would be that the room we were in was beautiful but very difficult to keep warm (245) it is on the corner of the hotel and the bathroom was ice cold most of the time. It was very cold outside while we were there in all fairness, but the bathroom certainly needs a heat vent or a heated floor under the tile just to take the chill off .
Great and comfortable room otherwise.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jaybird227 Weekend stay
Two things that we found hard to get over. First off the lack of hot water and pressure in our shower. And the fact that we had to park across the street at the mall because there was a Greyhounds game going on next door. So there was no parking for hotel customers. The Greyhound fans took all the parking spots. Hotel wise everything else was good. The staff were very friendly and very accommodating. The elevator could definitely use an upgrade.

Been staying at this location (Sault Ste. Marie) frequently on business since 2004. GREAT people, know my needs and the location is perfect (near mall, lake, arena, casino etc.). I recommend it to anyone I meet who plans on visiting the SOO. Recent upgrading is very nice too.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by team mom Customer care needs improvement
Although the room was clean and comfortable and the rate reasonable for the purpose of my stay, the service left a lot to be desired. When paying to stay at a hotel, I expect to have access to it's parking lot. Unfortunately, due to a local hockey game, the hotel parking lot was taken over by hockey fans attending the game across the street. I was informed that I could park in a no-parking spot in the laneway of the hotel but that once local traffic left the lot after the game I would have to go and move my vehicle. My son and I were on our way to bed and I had to inform staff that I would not be going back down to move as I was a paying guest and should have had parking in the first place. I was informed that I was taking a risk of being towed, to which I stated my vehicle had better be there in the morning. I think the hotel needs to enforce a no-parking for local traffic and take care of their paying guests. I will not stay here again and I will not recommend it to anyone either. What ever happened to customer service??? BTW, I was with a group of people staying and other members in the group had the same experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nurse13 Great facility, comfortable,clean and good location.
The staff were very helpful and polite. My daughter spent time with her husband and used the room and pool area. She and our grandson with friends used the pool. She asked to use the breakfast area to have pizza and drinks for lunch and the staff allowed this to happen. The area was cleaned up and left how it was found.
Thank-you for the 3 days of R & R.

You have to like the location,right across from the Mall. A short walk to the river.
This Holiday Inn was recently renovated. It's clean, new and the price is a good value.
I stay here every time I'm in the Soo.
