It would be nice to say this place was a good choice but I can't, I paid for my family to come out for my wedding and decided to put my uncle and aunt up here for 3 nights. I didn't mind that it was very expensive, what I do mind is the fact that my aunt and uncle wanted...

I had a very good experience at the Holiday Inn Express in Saskatoon. The location is just adjacent to the main downtown core. Easy access, good parking. It was a short walk to downtown, and a easy walk to the river park system. I was there on Canada Day, and enjoyed the walk through downtown to the River park to...

Friendly service from a young lady wearing a trainee badge. She helped solve a problem with my priority card and then gave me a pack of candy for my trouble. Room was fine though I could smell stale smoke odour. Mattress was good but the box spring jiggled so that every time my wife moved,I was shaken awake. Good location,...

The rooms were clean, front desk staff courteous and the continental breakfast was awesome! We were only there one night but it was great. Nice easy to get to parking and just a very nice hotel. We did not get a chance to use the pool but looked like it was well looked after.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for two nights, the rooms were dirty. There was a layer of dust on the tables and night stands. The floors looked like they weren't vacuumed for at least a month. There was no hot water only luke warm even after running the shower for 20 minutes. The only good thing about the room...

My other half & I just recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express, & were very impressed on ALL levels. Unfortunatly we were there to attend a funeral; The staff was extremely 'Warm & Welcoming,' rooms are clean & comfortable, & breakfast in the morning was delicious. If I return to the area, this will be my go to hotel!

Thank you for taking the time to review my hotel. I apologize for the cool temperature of our hot tub, we were having some issues with our boiler; however, those issues have since been repaired. I am also pleased to say that over the next year this property will be undergoing renovations. When these renovations are completed we will have...

Unfriendly service on check in, not rude just could care less about making us feel welcome. We also did not receive room cleaning service during our stay.

Location seems to be in an area where the neighborhood did not feel safe. Rooms were OK, the Gym equipment had 2 pieces out of 5 broken, that was disappointing. The Holiday Inn Express counter people had a challenge with English and checking us in was a little bit of an adventure. Not so welcoming.
