This hotel is super convenient right off of 401in Scarborough and I chose it for quick and easy access to the zoo. We did fit in a couple of other sites. I want to thank the ladies at the front desk. I knew it was on the highway and I called to ask for a quiet room away from the...

Poor quality holiday Inn express. Stains on the linens. Complaint the night auditor Samuel, he said hairs and stains are normal. Sink won't drain. Poor management. Decided to stay at another location.

Dear Guest, Your comment was discussed with our housekeeping and rest assured corrective measures are taken immediately. We regret having lost your business as I understand our night auditor offered to give you another room just to sleep in without moving your bags to avoid any inconvenience and since this was declined he had replaced the Linen. We hope you...

We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. We frequently use Holiday Inn hotels and they often have the same look. This hotel had an almost a rustic look, which we found warm and charming. Staff was welcoming, very friendly and helpful. The breakfast they offered was very good.

My mom, aunt and I stayed here for 3 nights while visiting family in Scarborough. It's conveniently located near the 401 freeway and they serve a very good buffet breakfast.

I went to Toronto to see my husband's family. We rented a wonderful hotel for the first two days : The Hilton in Oakville (although every Hilton I've been in have been perfect).

Great experience and all of the hotel staff were both attentive and excellent to work with. Our group of eight used four rooms which were beautifully taken care of each day while we were out. We enjoyed the full breakfast every morning, and even though crowded with customers the area was well maintained. A very good experience in every way.

This somewhat older HIE is just off the 401. It is a short drive to downtown Toronto when the traffic is light. Upon check in we were acknowledged as platinum IHG, and given a large two queen room on the main level. The room was pretty standard mid range hotel style.

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
