Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sharon1953 Our home away from home!
We have been coming to the Holiday Inn Express on Estate Drive in Scarborough for sometime now, more frequently in the last few months as we have had a sick Aunt to visit. the staff always make us feel extremely welcome, they treat us like family and Peter always has a friendly welcome for us. Our Aunt sadly passed away recently but if we ever need to be in the Scarborough area again we will stay there. Thanks for everything!!

As it relates to hotels and the cleanliness of the room, this one was the worse I've ever stayed in.
Food stains on the comforter hair on the bathroom floor, garbage not removed from the room during daily house keeping are examples of why I am rating the way I did.
The staff at the front desk where nice enough. The quality of the breakfast was decent and the rate was okay too, however I will never stay at this hotel again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Always a Great Stay
I've frequented this hotel location often over the past 10 years or so. The staff and quality has always been great. I've come to expect that and have never been dissapointed in that aspect of it. The breakfast food quality has always remained consistent. Never great but never supper terrible and the McDonalds near by is my saving grace. We will be back again I am sure!

The front desk staff are always great at this location and go out of their way to treat you like you are special. I have stayed at this location several time and have nothing bad about it. The only problem I had this time was I found the bed a little hard. But that could be more my age than their beds. LOL
I will deffinetly be staying here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ontheroadagain7511 Nice Rooms but where are the outlets
The whole property has a nice feel to it. The lobby is very inviting and has a different look than the normal HI Express. The rooms carry this feeling as they have exposed brick and are nicely laid out. The desk chair is great as it has height adjustment that allows you to work at a comfortable level (too many hotel desk chairs are too low in relationship to the desk). All of these things lead me to recommend this property.
There are really only two things I have issues with. The first is the number of outlets in the room. Like many rooms there just isn't enough. One at the desk is hardly enough when you are trying to do work on your computer and then charge your phone and blue tooth earpiece. If there were some near the bed stands that would be great but there aren't. This left me with putting both chargers in the bathroom and since I use my cell phone as my alarm clock this is really inconvenient. I also like to press my clothes in the morning and the only outlet I could find was back in the corner behind the sofa. My other gripe is when the fan is connected to the light switch in the bathroom. I do not need the fan to run every time I turn on the light. It was made worse by the fact that this had to be the noisiest vent fan I have heard. Had to close the bathroom door to hear the TV.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Samsmurph Good location but...
The location was good and the breakfast was good...but I travel quite a bit for competitions and usually book at least 3 rooms, I have come to expect a fridge at least in my room to keep drinks cold, quite a few hotels even include a microwave. In the future I will not be staying in hotels that do not have room refrigerators.

Despite the fact that the hotel was at full capacity,(I imagine due to the ice storm) staff were extremely friendly, breakfast was hot and plentiful. All around a great experience. We've stayed there before and will stay there again and again. Great job!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lizardlips Be Careful of Wake-up Calls
I booked for a wake up call on check in for 4:00 am every day of my stay as I have early business meetings. Monday morning at 5:30 am my bright and early 4:00 am wake up call rings me awake, despite the front desk guy confirming the time with me.
My Monday work day did not go well due to the fact I was late.
Lesson learned: When booking wake-up calls, call the front desk back at a later time to confirm what they set up for you, or you may regret not doing this.

I travel regularly to Scarborough to visit our office there. I usually stay 3-4 days. I arrive usually late at night and leave very early in the morning.
I appreciate the fact that when I call in to make the reservation they remember me by voice and name.
the breakfast in the morning is perfect, my room as always is impeccable.
The staff is always warm, friendly, and helpful.
And when I forget my shaving kit they always have a razor waiting for me.
Thanks for making me feel at home away from home.

All of the staff, from the receptionist to the greeters at breakfast to the cleaners, were all very pleasant and hospitable. Hotel/room was very clean and had a good "feel" to it (Comfortable). Breakfast was great for an "included" breakfast (Best I have seen). Pancake machine was the highlight :) I would return if in the area again based on this stay and would/will recommend to others.
Please pass this message to all of the staff and have a wonderful holiday season.
Thank you for the great stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ThorFan Great Value for a Decent Room
The room price was right and had what I was looking for. The hotel was done up nicely, both the main lobby and my room. Clean and pristine.
Its a shame the staff was making a scene because of another patron across the hall from my room who claimed my friends made a lot of noise when coming down the hall though.
Other than that, the complimentary breakfast was pretty good if you like cinnamon buns and cereal. Didn't try the pancakes or toast. Eggs were okay but I prefer fresh and made to order.

As expected this was a great experience. You can always count on the high standards of Holiday Inn.
I do a lot of traveling with a sports team I coach and I am never let down by Holiday Inn Express.
It was clean, updated, great staff. I was impressed with the breakfast which provided both hot and cold options, plus a good selection of fruit and juices.
You can save a few dollars at one of the other national franchises but for the small difference just knowing it will all be taken care of and as promised it is worth the difference.
I will be back whenever I am in the area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Shar65 Room condition
Confidentially,I have never been so disappointed while staying overnight.
The bathroom sink was greasy, not squeaky/shiny clean. It was fairly obvious that no cleaner had been used to clean the sink or counter before my arrival. The toilet was not properly cleaned as evidenced by residual urine behind the seat hinge.
Dust and dirt were obvious around the perimeter of the sleeping area. There needs to be more attention to detail when vacuuming.
I have been staying overnight at your location for a number of years because of its close proximity to Rouge Valley Medical Center for early morning laser surgeries.
With your assurance that conditions in the rooms will improve, I will return to your hotel on my next trip to Scarborough for early morning surgery.
This message is sent with the best of intentions.

I had a wonderful stay here. For a woman traveling alone, I need to feel safe and comfortable. I had the feeling of staying with friends. The room was large and clean and I didn't even use the "sleep sack" that I always bring to hotels. The manager, Peter, was extremely helpful and accommodating. Breakfast was sooooo good! Will stay here every time I visit. Thank you for a perfect stay. Dawn

Staff, especially Peter the day manager, were extremely welcoming and friendly. Peter goes out of his way to make his guests feel like family - calling them by name, remembering details from their last visit, showing a keen interest in their lives and their needs. Customer care to this degree is rare these days. He is a real gem - I hope he ends up on Boss Undercover (or whatever that show is called), so he is recognized for his extreme customer service and friendliness. I would return to Toronto East Holiday Inn just because of him!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Summ Excellent - would return!
Very nice clean room, great bed and front desk called us shortly after check-in to ensure that everything in our room met our expectations. Rates were lower (and ratings slightly lower) than other TO area Holiday Inn Express, so we were a little concerned before checking in, but we were so comfy, we actually slept in and missed breakfast. Would definitely go back and would recommend this location to friends! Excellent value for a Toronto hotel.

My sister and I had driven to Toronto late Monday night and needed a place to stay. We weren't sure what to expect for a hotel in Toronto in our price range, but I have to say this hotel met all our expectations. They price was great, the room was very cute and the breakfast in the morning was very good. Thank you for a great stay!

The hotel looks new, but the carpet on the 1st Floor is filty and full of musty smell. It is a bad sight to see. I wa in room #257. I had no choice then to stay because I was in a foreign country and I need to rest.

Simple place but good overall. Definitely served its purpose for one night stay. I would stay again.
There could be more breakfast food options like hashbrowns, fresh fruit, cheese, etc.
Also there should have been water and juice options available in the dispenser. Everything was sold out. But the customer service easily provided me water right away.
