Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jtorre4272 Great... during the week
Sault Ste Marie isnt necessarily the posterchild for hospitality, but so far, I think this HIE is quite acceptable for any area. Always plenty of food in the morning, and the rooms are well appointed. Only had one issue so far with no hot water one morning...Not a very pleasant experience. Also, I think when the hotel is full, the wireless service is pretty poor. The manager should really consider improving this as many of the guests need the feature working well as part of their jobs.
During the week is the best time to stay. Most guests are single occupancy business travelers who make little noise and leave early in the morning. However, avoid weeekends. There is a pool, and every time I have been forced to stay on a Friday night, I have found the place is inundated with kids making lots of noise. Very annoying.
In addition, there tend to be, well...(insert noun here) on snowmobiles showing up on the weekends. You know, the kind who love their cans of bud light and like to open up their room doors to party in the halls? Happened twice to me so far. I had to "inform" the guests that not everyone staying there is interested in raging til the wee hours. Nothing to do with the hotel though.
So in the end, I enjoy this hotel during the week. The staff is very kind and willing to accomodate me no matter what the question. It's the weekend clientelle that can sometimes be a real frustrating experience.
I travel roughly 4 months out of the year.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JL5455 Slow WiFi Ruins A Good Experience!
The only negative thing I experienced during my stay was exceptionally slow WiFi. I was there for business, and this made it very difficult to work. It's a shame because other than that, my stay was great - a great property, great staff, good breakfast, and a clean and comfortable room. I can't stay again, though, because I have to be in a place where I can efficiently get my work done!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cowboy1Golf easy to get to and quiet
every thing was very good except for the stations choices of channels on the TV , there was not very good coverage of sports stations, like espn,golf channel, hunting shows. For as much as you charge for the rooms you could upgrade the coverage.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dstone518 Staff was friendly, but room was not clean
I travel on a weekly basis for work so I am definitely used to staying in hotels, some very nice, some average. I am familier with Holiday Inn Expresses and consider them average but comfortable. Unfortunately, with this particular stay, my room was not clean upon first walking in. There was large old urine spots on the toilet seat along with tiny brown specs. There was also a smooshed dead spider on the bathroom floor. Ew! I immediately cleaned it off but now wish I would have brought in management to see it for themselves. Then the next day I came back from work to find a tissue on the floor, my fast food trash still laying out, and the bathroom still had water spots left on the counter. I mean, come on. At that point, I didn't know whether or not my bed sheets were clean. Needless to say, the stay wasn't great. I told the woman at the front desk of my complaint and she simply asked for my name and room #. She didn't even apologize and I never heard anything else about it. I expect more from Holiday Inn. I won't be staying there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Virginians A great place to stay!
We stayed for over a week...the room was comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. The pool/hot tub was clean and was open hours that made it available for relaxing when we needed it. The breakfast was great!! They change it a little each day so on an extended visit like ours you don't have to eat the same thing every day. Comparable to having a restaurant breakfast...eggs, sausage or bacon, biscuits and gravy, fruit, waffles and a variety of yogurt and cold cereals. The in-room Wi-Fi worked perfectly with a strong signal and there was also available wired in-room internet.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wallette3 Terrible Bed.
We have stayed at this Holiday Inn in the past and enjoyed ourselves.
This time we barely slept a wink all night because the mattress was terrible. When we laid on it we both rolled to the center of the bed and it also squeaked when we sat on the side of the bed. It is the worst stay we have had in a hotel...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FireChief310 Excellent experience
The Hotel was very clean and relaxing. The staff was super polite and very eager to help. We had a very good time visiting Grandkids. The pool could have been a little warmer and the Jacuzzi a little coller for us older folks but was comfortable. My wife could not get into the pool beacuse it was too cold for her circulation problems. The rooms were very clean and the Breakfast was very good and hot on a cold day.

This was a very enjoyable experience for my wife and I. I was impressed with all the staff, even the housekeepers when out their way to acknowledge us. I wish that I had gotten their names to share with you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kzootech Excellent Location and Great Service
I have traveled as a district Manager and stayed at this hotel previously. It was very nice. My job changed and I have not been here in several years. Since then, it has newly remodeled rooms, new very comfortable matresses, flat screen TVs, wireless internet, refrigerator in our room plus great amenities such as pool, whirlpool, great breakfast with many choices and excellent service.
I highly recommend the Holiday Inn Express Sault St Marie.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Epique Clean, comfortable, and a great value!
This is probably the only hotel at which I will stay when visiting Sault Ste. Marie. It's clean, the beds are comfortable, and it is a great value. I always know what to expect at the HIE. On my last visit the front desk worker was very helpful in recommening a running route and explaining how to get access to the track at the Norris Center at LSSU. The hotel is pretty quiet overall and I like that.

Would have liked to have had a room with a view. Were told none were available but later found out they were only not at discounted rate.
