Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Puppy Girl Relaxing Stay
We visited the St. Jacobs Market recently and had the pleasure of staying at the Holiday Inn Express.
The area is great for those who just want to get away from the city and this hotel epitomizes that sense of relaxation.
The staff were great and very attentive. The breakfast was fantastic. Our room was very comfortable and the amenities were great!
We were very happy with our experience in St. Jacobs and are planning on visiting again. And, when we do, we will definitely book a room at this hotel.
We are also recommending this hotel to our friends and family.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Specs04 Made my week fly by!
I stayed at this hotel for an entire week. It was for business and I ended up working 12 hour days. It felt nice to come back at night to the hotel and be greeted by smiling faces. The rooms were comfortable and modern. Staff were friendly and always willing to help. The breakfast was yummy and a great start to my day. I have never felt more relaxed during a hotel stay. I would stay here again!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roxy1243 accessibility for disabled
With my husband is in an electric wheelchair, the rooms are the biggest problem when travelling. This room were spacious enough for my husband to move around in the wheelchair without too much trouble, the "roll in shower" is roll in, but has a small lip that is always a bit of a problem. Nothing that a small rubber wedge would not solve, and I advised the management of the resolution. We use a portable hoyer lift and because these beds are on a box, it does make it a little difficult . My suggestion would be to put the accessible rooms on a rail system, then if a lift was needed, this would make the process easier. Otherwise, the stay was delightful, staff were helpful and friendly, we would return to this hotel in the future.

I was looking forward to spending some time with my friends. When I walked into the hotel, I was immediately pleased with the beautiful entrance. The desk clerk greeted me with a smile and a willingness to help in any way. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends in the future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by treez A Good Choice For A Night's Stay
Room was nicely decorated with modern fixtures and very clean. Loved the scent of the shower gel and lotions that were provided. Breakfast is included and there was a good variety of food items to choose from. Overall, we had a very nice and relaxing stay, but we did feel that the cost of the room is a little on the high side, especially when you consider you have to pay 16% tax on the room.

Traveling from Brandon Manitoba to Wolfville Nova Scotia. this is the 2nd IHG we stayed at on the trip. A perfect 5 just like the first one. Ask the Front Desk staff for a restaurant recommendation. They made a great one for us.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DARS A Great Place to Relax
I came here with two other family members for a couple of days of relaxation and rest from my job. Everything was more than I expected, right down to the awesome pool, the great breakfast and the courteous staff. The room was spacious and quiet as well. The only thing I did not like was that our room faced across to the Outlet Mall, which was fine, but I could not figure out how to draw the curtains to keep the lights out while sleeping. To me, it looked like they did not close but I could have been wrong. Other than that, it was a great stay and I would absolutely stay here again.

Was an enjoyable stay. Is a new facility that is close enough to work--but in a quaint location with access to shopping and dining.
One personal touch I would like to mention was that the manager (I assume) took the time to greet guests in the breakfast area--and did so in a genuine and kind manner. A nice touch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pinball59 Courteous Staff and very clean
Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Pool looked very nice but arrived late so did not get a chance to use it.
Breakfast was good but not enough seating. I guess we ate at the same time everyone else wanted to so we were going to take our breakfast to our room but could not find any trays. Just as we were about to try and carry food to our room another guest made room for us at her table.

We love everything about Holiday Inn Express except for the uncomfortable couches in the room. You just cannot get comfortable on them! Other then that we had no complaints. Great staff!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Neener165 Comfortable bed but too expensive!
I thought the staff here was very kind. He was a very nice man and helped everyone out. I didn't like that we couldn't close the blinds, I had to use my hair tie to tie it so it was dark in the room. Way too expensive for one night, and in St. Jacobs at that.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gemini 12 Pleasent Staff
The only good thing I can say is the staff are courteous.
The pool was so cold we couldn't go in!
The staff were uninformed when we were asking questions regarding Horse and Buggy rides that were being offered right across the road from the hotel.
Hotel was EXTREMLY noisy as well as we could hear other guests through the bathroom vents.
I would suggest asking if there is any conventions going on in this hotel before booking!!!

Stayed at Holiday In Express in St. Jacobs on June 21, 2014. Spent the weekend touring the area and found the hotel very clean and most comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone planning to visit the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by timmie lumpy bed and somewhat poor service
it is unfortunate that i had an unpleasant experience with one of the front desk staff. often times, something like this can affect my decision to return. i work in the service industry and know how it works. i plan to keep an open mind and perhaps return again.
the beds in the room were on the lumpy side. not sure what the problem was.
all in all our stay was fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by abbeylove59 Great location and comfortable stay!
My husband and I stayed here on June 25 and from the time we checked in to the time we checked out, we were impressed with the great customer service of the staff. They were friendly, efficient, knowledgeable and kind.
The King executive suite was beautifully decorated in pleasing colors and we enjoyed the expanded breakfast. I really like being able to get a cup of coffee or tea at any time in the dining room too- a simple little thing, but welcome when you are on your way up to the room for the night and can make an herbal tea right there and then.
Jack's next door was great too for dinner. We will stay here again!

Visited St.Jacobs to do the Market and Outlet shopping. It was very nice to park the car and walk to both. The Holiday Inn is central to both places and a restaurant just across the parking lot all within walking distance. The city of Waterloo is just minutes away by car and there is bus service at the corner.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Droopydrawers Great location and wonderful room
If your travelling to St.Jacobs or the surrounding area this is a perfect hotel. The hotel and rooms are very clean and a modern décor. I would have given this hotel an excellent rating except for 1 issue. We arrived at 1:30 pm , early for the posted check in time. I was told we could check-in but it would cost us an extra $30.00. That was a first for me, I've checked in early at many hotels including the HIE in Whitby two days earlier and have either been told your in luck the room is ready or sorry we don't have a room yet but never it will cost extra. This incident will not stop me from staying at this or any Holiday Inn Express but I do feel this Hotel should re-think this policy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Claramaria Overall very good, but,
No bar available in room. The cups were paper or plastic. Breakfast had very limited choices with paper and plastic cutlery and dishes. The meats avail looked like they were cooked long ago, then shriveled, and reheated.
In summary, I have traveled in many countries, and this was the worst.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nursie66 Nursing Reunion
I booked the hotel as this years venue for a yearly reunion for our nursing class. For the last few years we have made it an annual event.
I think this has been our best to date.
We were provided with a suite (as one of the rooms)which allowed us to visit very comfortably.
The rooms are comfortable, large bathrooms.
The décor also lovely, muted aqua and cream shades
The staff are very helpful and friendly.
The only thing missing is Dining although the buffet breakfast provided is quite adequate and the Restaurant next door serves excellent food.
The access to the hotel and other areas of interest have ensured that we will be staying here next year as well.
We enjoyed our stay very much.
