My husband and I stayed for two nights on a recent spontaneous fall roadtrip.

The room was great and we slept amazingly well in the comfortable bed.

We've stayed at a few hotels during the time of Covid 19 and this one handled it the best. There was a hot breakfast available served by a gloved and masked staff member.

My only complaint would be that our room wasn't cleaned during our stay. I would have appreciated if housekeeping had come in to at least empty the garbage and spruce up the bathroom.

Overall, a good stay though and we would return for another visit.

I always book the king suite with kitcheonette, am thouroughly pleased, it's on the ground floor at the back , so easy parking. On our last visit I was so impressed with the breakfast and the breakfast lady, she was oustanding. It's not a bag breakfast but you can have hot waffles, eggs, sausage, bagels , everything you normally have but you just take it to your room, super awesome service! Totally reccomend this hotel! And not too far away from Casino, Uber always available!

I have never left a trip advisor review but I had to for this one.

The pros: The staff was super friendly, the breakfast was tasty, the bed was comfy enough

The cons: The bathroom was super gross, it looked like years of bad/no cleaning- the shower head was completely calcified, there was mold/mildew along the cocking, the toilet paper holder was beyond gross. We paid 300$ for the first night in order to have the kitchenette included, but it was unusable as there was no heat- it was an icebox, and the cold billowed out into the room if the door was open. Lastly there was a hockey tournament staying and they played hockey and pounded on the walls when there is already little to no sound proofing. Not to mention the constant slamming of the exit door right outside the room. Needless to say, neither my toddler or I slept well and I am a very tired momma today.

The front staff did address the hockey team, and had offered to have someone check the cleanliness of the washroom, but I was exhausted and had had enough so I checked out early even though I still had to pay the entire bill. So more than 500$ not well spent.
Super disappointed and do not recommend.

The hotel room itself was fine, it was average in size and seemed clean. The bathroom was tiny and you could barely open the door fully as the door hit the toilet. Lots of restaurants close by. The pool is a joke. During our 2 night stay it was closed both days as they said the chemicals were off. I had called the hotel prior to our stay to ask if the pool was open since I had read many reviews stating it was closed. I was assured by the person that I spoke with that the pool was open and would be for our stay. The first day they had signs on the door and at the front desk saying it was closed. The second we went down to the pool around 8:30 PM and the kids were in for less than 5 minutes when the maintenance guy came and said they had to get out of the pool as he was closing it cause he couldn't see the dots on the floor. We could clearly see the dots he was referring to. The person I spoke with at the front desk the first day was less than helpful and I would go as far as saying she was rude. If you are looking for a hotel with the ability to swim you'll definitely want to pick another hotel as this one never seems to be open.

This was our first time staying at this particular hotel but it won’t be my last. My husband and I were return from a flight from Las Vegas and we hadn’t slept for at least 24 hours…we were so tired. I thought I would see if the hotel could give us a room earlier than check in time. Haidee was the desk clerk and when I explained our situation she gave us an early checkin. I feel she was our guardian angel. All the staff at this hotel were so friendly and everyone we met greeted us. The beds were very comfortable And the warm breakfast in the morning was very good & plentiful. Good variety of items. It is in a good location close to restaurants & shopping. Keep up the great job!

I had a double room with 2 queen beds. The room was clean when we came and the staff keep it cleaned daily. The TV, Fridge, and WIFI worked great. The only issue was getting logged into the WIFI the first time but the tech people were extremely helpful getting on.

The Staff was great when I asked for extra coffee pods they had them at the registration desk. The morning breakfast was excellent.

Great stay with the family! The staff were so friendly, kind and accommodating. We stayed for a week and were provided a room with a kitchenette, which provided the additional space and convenience needed for the 4 of us. The room was clean and temperature was perfect. Morning breakfast was delicious with welcoming staff. The location is great, close to restaurants with easy access to Hwy 400. Thank you!

After 2 days of trying to make an online booking, they still charged me for a booking error. After they agreed they were having issues with their website's booking, they only decided to refund me half of my wrong date that was booked. Mary Lewis the manager stated that it was my error that I did not double check my confirmation and that I should have called when having troubles booking. I had to follow up with 2 more phone calls to receive my invoice. Terrible services here. Painfully slow elevators as well.

Dear lisau688: I am sorry to hear that you are not happy with the service received and the resolution that I had provided in regards to the no-show charge involving your reservation. As I had stated to you during our telephone conversation I felt that we were both to fault in regards to your reservation which was made for an incorrect date. This reservation was held by the hotel on a sold out evening. Reservation confirmation emails are sent when reservations are made to avoid such occurrences. These emails provide all the booking details including dates. Due to circumstances I had told you that I would meet you halfway in regards to the charge as we both had responsibility with this reservation. Again, my apologies. Sincerely, Mary Lewis General Manager

You cannot control who stays at a hotel, but they can surely control who works there and they hired right :)
Everyone from the front desk, to the breakfast room, to the cleaning and maintenance staff are truly wonderful people to talk and deal with.

The hotel itself has a pool (closed for maintenance while I stayed, but it looks fun), a small gym, and free hot breakfast (which is why I choose HI Expresses to begin with). The rooms are well kept and have a tv, microwave, mini fridge, and Keurig coffee machine. I wanted for nothing during my stay and usually that makes for a wonderful hotel experience.
