Great location, friendly service and nice rooms! We always stay here as it’s always been a great place to stay for us. Breakfast is always great, and you have a mini-fridge and coffee maker and microwave as well.

The check-in process was seamless, the bed was really comfortable, like sleeping on a marshmallow. The handicap room had adequate space but was located the farthest form the elevators. The labels on the soap, shampoo and conditioner containers were very fine print and difficult to read without a magnifying glass. Typically washrooms are stocked with at least one spare toilet paper roll. Our room not only did not have a spare roll there were only 4 sheets left on the roll in the dispenser. Breakfast was above average.

We stayed in room 520
The bad
There are no blackout curtains.. lots of light at night
There were drips of blood on the floor and the bathtub had hair in it.. it wasn’t ours
The rug in the room was stained with ? , coffee drips leading from the bed to the window
The windows had puddles of water at the base.. and the fan in the bathroom was coated with dust. Someone had vomited in the elevator and the cleanup was partial.. splashed vomit on the door and lower walls was very visible and fragrant. The gym equipment was mostly out of order…
The good part
Staff at the front desk was wonderful..as was the staff in the dining room for breakfast. The breakfast itself was pretty good. With options galore .
The bed was so comfortable.. We slept well..

A comfortable place.. just kinda dirty..

Booked in advance for one night with my son only to arrive and wait 20 min to get checked in. No staff present to check in any customers, others waiting previously for awhile before us. When the lady came to front desk apparently she told us she was the only staff on site. She was very nice, felt bad as this is a very big establishment to staff on her own. And not very fair for customers arriving either to have to wait to be checked in. We received our key card for our room, only to find out when we opened the door that it was occupied by someone else. Very awkward for my young male teenager and I to see. This lady was on the bed, obviously very upset when strangers walk into her room at 8 pm. When I went down to the front desk and asked how we would be compensated for this mess up. My answer at first was because I did a third party booking through Expedia not much could be done. If I had of booked directly through them she could do something. To me that was not reasonable since the key card was not given to me by Expedia. End result, I was given $20 refund after she spoke to her manager via text. To me this was not even close to being reasonable at all. But I guess we live and learn.

Management seemed to be sticky to their policies and didn’t value repeated customers. Just hope you don’t run into issues with your stay. Other venues would’ve tried to find solution to customer concerns instead of a “sorry, no”. Will be redirecting the crew to Comfort Inn or Best Western next in the area.

Hi hermanli2, Thanks for your review and for staying with us. We always try our best to meet our guests' accommodations and needs as we love taking care of all of our guests. I'm sorry this was not the case during your stay. The experience you described certainly isn't what we want for any of our guests, nor is our best here. I have shared your comments about the poor level of customer service you encountered with the hotel management. I am certain measures will be taken to address the areas you have noted. I can see that your experience was not up to par for you. We hope you will choose to stay with us again, so we can show you that your last visit was an exception. Sincerely, Connie D Case Manager IHGService

The Holiday Inn and Suites in Clarington Ontario might be one of the most dishonest hotels we have ever been to. We are in this area to see our grandson participate in the Ontario high school hockey championship. The reason we booked this hotel was because it advertised having a pool and hot tub. We could have booked a hotel that was cheaper and closer to the action, but the hot tube was a feature that we wanted.

When we booked in, we were told by the hotel clerk that pool and the hot tube were closed for maintenance. I asked why this was not on their web site. The clerk told us that it was an emergency situation, and that was why it was not on their web site when we booked the room, two weeks ago.

We walked by the pool area, and it is obvious that this is not an emergency repair. There is major work being performed, requiring scaffolding to be installed, the ceiling and walls are being painted and the pool lining is being patched in multiple places. This would have been planned many weeks, even months in advance. So, what the desk clerk told us was an out and out lie.

I asked for compensation, and the manager turned us down stating that he could not do anything because we had prepaid through HOTELS.CA. This again is bulls**t. We have had at least two other occasions, where a manager has offered free accommodation during our next visit because we were not satisfied with the accommodations.

So, I can only say, stay away from this hotel and do not reward poor and deceitful business practices,

Decent Holiday Inn Express, consistent with expectations. However bed mattress was low quality and the room rate of $267.309tax incl.) was excessive.
Save a few bucks and go across the street to the Quality Inn.
Staff were friendly enough and it was clean. I get the inflation argument etc but this is too high a price for the type of room and level of accommodation.

The location was easy to find and the rooms were clean an fully equipped.

A young sports team, parents and younger siblings were everywhere! Noisy, running, slamming doors. I wish they could have kept them all on one floor. Our next room have kids slamming their room door and being rowdy in the hallway. Should have checked when we arrived.

We stopped here traveling east, a crew of 7 people, in two rooms. We needed a crib for one of the rooms. The hotel was pretty much up to all that we asked of it. Nothing to elaborate, but a fine highway hotel, easy off the 401. I'd stay here again.

Pleasant agreeable staff. Reasonable rooms. But there was only luke-warm water coming out of the hot water taps. Apparently due to a malfunction on several of the hotel's water heaters. Sounded like it had been like this for a while. Not what you expect from a Holiday Inn. So much for the promise of no surprises.

Unfortunately our banquet rooms are more for small to medium corporate meetings (2 to 50 people), we don't have the space for a large gathering.
