Honestly when I saw the pics I thought it was an older hotel, boy was I wrong. This is a very new modern hotel. We were in going to a family gathering in Lower Sackville and this was the closest hotel. My only complaint is we were in line to check in for half an hour because we arrived the...

I usually try and stay at IHG Hotels whenever possible. I find them consistent in what they provide and the value for the cost has always been great. I recently stayed at this Holiday Inn Express for business and was very pleased with all aspects from its atmosphere to check-in to its modern decor throughout. I liked the electronic safe,...

I stayed here while taking a training course. It is very conveniently located, excellent customer service and a lovely room. A good stay except for one minor incident. I checked in on a Sunday night.

We were on a government move and chose to stay here. We booked based on their website stating very clearly that they accept domestic pets.

Good day Potter477, I am very sorry to learn of your experience. I can understand how frustrating that would be to find the hotel changing brands with different standards from what you were expecting. It sounds like you may have been looking to stay before we officially opened as a Holiday Inn Express. Since the brand switch, we have changed...
