This is an older but well maintained hotel. The rooms are large and clean, beds comfortable, but as is normal for comparable properties, the pillows are some type of spongy material. The hotel is located downtown, and for me close to the offices I had to visit. Although I have been coming to Windsor for 30 years, it was only...

When I checked in I was greeted by people with a smile, they were very professional and at the same time cool enough for my 23 year old daughter. The hotel is centrally located and a perfect spot to make day trips to Detroit. There is a hidden gem in this hotel. When you go for breakfast and Renee is...

Decent hotel. A bit dated but seemed clean. Staff were good and it's a great location for trips to the US. we walked 1/2 block from Canadian boarder on our return!!! Will stay here again mainly because of this convenience. The prices were very competitive.

The holiday inn was nothing special but there was nothing wrong with it. Spent the weekend in Canada with friends for a birthday. The location of this hotel is great as it's very central between bars and the casino. The price was not terrible. Would stay here again. Graeme at the front desk was super helpful!

Hotel is well located a little dated but rooms are large and bed is very comfy. Staff is very friendly. When parking is full on the 2nd level you have to park downstairs which is not connected to the hotel and have to walk outside to get to hotel but in winter this could be the better parking.

The hotel staff were very friendly upon checking in. If you drive a big vehicle like we do - pick-up - parking is a nightmare and extremely tight as you're in a parking garage with extremely tight turns and limited spaces for parking.
