“Pleasant stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

My teenage daughter and I stayed here one night for a local hockey tournament. We "splurged" and got a nonsmoking room on the executive floor since we had a smokey-smelling room during a previous stay. The "executive" room, which had two queen beds, cost almost $160 for the night, no breakfast included. I think the price was too high for what we got, but the room was very comfortable and pleasant. The room was supposed to come with complimentary bathrobes and bottled water, which it did, but there was only ONE bottle of water and ONE bathrobe (we asked and were later given a second robe, but no additional water). There was a bar and restaurant downstairs, which was nice, but I ordered a glass of white wine and it was $15! It ended up being a huge glass of wine, but I was rather shocked at the price. There is an indoor pool but it was very small and crowded. The exercise room was small but not crowded and I did not have to wait for a treadmill. All in all, it was a pleasant stay -- we would stay here again.

Room Tip: Get an executive room if you don't want to be on a floor with a sports team!

The Holiday Inn (Argus Road, Oakville) is located a little out of the way for most businesses in the Toronto Area, but the property was easy to drive to, park at and commute was a breeze to my meetings around the Mississauga/Oakville area (West Toronto area). The hotel, although somewhat basic in services and selection, appears well run with a decent breakfast, decent internet and great core facilities like bed comfort and room cleanliness. I will stay again when I visit the area. Also the Oakville Place shopping mall (8 minutes walk/1 min car) is nearby with selection of food and shopping/entertainment.

Pros: Breakfast, clean, comfort
Con: Location, and really - the hotel mentions swimming pool, but it is really in almost in the lobby area, and I would not use it.

Room Tip: Further up the better, but there was elevator maintenance when I was there so plan a few extra minut...

I would like to thank you for taking the time to post a review about our property on TripAdisor. We realize everyone leads very busy lives and not everyone takes the time to write a nice review. I am happy to see that you were able to take advantage of our proximity to Oakville's largest indoor mall.

Thank you once again and we look forward to seeing you again during your next trip to the area.

A quick one night stay while we attended to personal business in the area.
The hotel has been recently upgraded and rooms, lobby bar, etc were clean and attractive.
Breakfast buffet was modesty priced and good value. Great coffee served by the carafe included unsolicited cups to take away.
Overall a great experience representing good value for the money.

My son and I attended a Blue Jays game at Rogers Centre as part of our summer baseball trip in 2011. We were attending a Sunday afternoon game and wanted a place to stay outside of downtown Toronto so we could gete an early start Monday morning for Niagara Falls. We had stayed downtown on a previous vacation in Toronto, so we wanted to save some cash as well on this trip.

We were pleased with our selection of the Holiday Inn Oakville. It appears this hotel is one of the old Holidome locations that were prevalent years ago. The swimming pool still exists, but what appears to have been the rest of the recreation areas are now a bar / loungue.

The hotel is located near the Oakville GO station, which was great. We elected to take the GO train to the game due to large crowds in downtown for a special event. You could walk to the Oakville Station from the hotel, although we elected to drive due to the high temperatures.

We had a great night's sleep - maybe it was because we were very tired, but comfortable beds, no highway noise. The HVAC unit was noisier than the typical hotel units, but it produced a white noise and was not a hindrance to sleeping.

As a Priority Club member we received a small gift bag with bottles of water and chips - nice touch.

Nothing special here, just comfortable, affordable accomodations in a good location.

i would like to thank you for your most wonderful review of our property. It looks like you have discovered our secret. We are a perfect stopping point for anyone who is looking to go to both Toronto and Niagara Falls. Having the Go Train across the street is a huge benefit for us. We are lucky that our guests can walk the 3 minute walk to the train station and hop on and head for Toronto. This is especially great for those looking to go to a sporting event or concert. No hassle of traffic or parking. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay while you were here.

Thank you once again and I hope to see you back this summer for your annual trip.

Regards,

If you are going to this hotel, do not expect more than a regular holiday inn. I found the area okay because it is close to the Go train, but the area is very industrial. The only thing that was excellent is that it was very clean because it was brand new.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your experience at our hotel last March. We are very proud of our renovations and are glad you were able to enjoy them as well. I am sorry that your perception of the area was that were are just in an industrial area. The GO Train is a convenience that is unique to our property in that you can be from the door of our property to the heart of downtown Toronto in around 45 minutes and you don't need a car to get there.

Please give us the opportunity the next time you are in town to show you a little of what else surrounds us. We are a 20 minute walk or 5 minute bus ride to historic downtown Oakville, where you can find everything from Fine Dining to shopping and Theatre.

Thank you once again for your valueable feedback and we hope to see you back soon.

Regards,


Julie McDonald

Had the pleasure of hosting a team celebration at the Holiday Inn Oakville- couldn'[t have asked for a better night! Staff and food were great and the event co-ordinator was more then helpful in taking care of all the details and making it a worry free night to remember.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

I spent a long weekend in Oakville at the Holiday Inn, Nov. 18-21/2011. Construction was in progess in the rooms adjacent to us (the doors were left open and we listened to their ongoing conversations throughout our entire stay during the day). We were given a room with no window, simply a patio door that exited onto the hallway across from the elevator. My friend arrived before me and had already settled in. If not for that, I would have demanded something more suitable. The room was reasonably clean and great attention was given to providing a choice of a soft pillow or a firmer pillow [to the point of providing labels on them]. Pity was, the beds were far from comfortable. The first evening there we opted out of dinner in the restaurant and ordered room service. Something snack-like seemed like a good option. We ordered a salad, chicken wings and chicken quesadillas. The tray arrived without condiments, fresh water and the food was less than passable. Very little dressing on the salad, almost all lettuce with little else, the chicken wings were ALL the end pieces and the quesadillos were dried out with an infintestimal amount of filling. The area of Oakville is a high-end, affluent neighbourhood. How this example of a hotel located there survives - is beyond me.

Room Tip: Steer clear...

Dear Julia S:

I am so sorry to hear about your recent experience at the Holiday Inn Oakville-Centre. This is not the level of service we strive to achieve. We did have a small renovation project we were working on while you are here, but we have now completed the renovation. We recently replaced all of the beds in the hotel. We have put in firm pillow-top mattresses into all of our rooms. I apologize that this was not the type of bed you may have been looking for. I have forwarded your review onto our Team members and would love to invite you back to give us a chance to exceed your expectations.

Please contact me directly if possible at: gm@hioakville.com. I would love to get more details from you regarding your stay i.e. room number. This would assist me with my follow-up to the appropriate Team members.

Thank you once again for taking the time to provide us with this valuable feedback.

Regards,



Julie McDonald
