Holiday Inn Express Red Deer
Ranked #2 of 29 Hotels in Red Deer
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 February 2008

We stayed at hotel with my 9 year olds sports team and families. We selected the hotel because it had a pool & water slide. The pool is very small (similar to a backyard pool) and the water slide is very small as well. Because the pool is so small kids coming down the slide were running into other kids. We pulled our entire group out of the pool fearing a serious injury.

The hotel has had a recent facelift inside and rooms were very comfortable.
I travel a lot on business and this is the 1st time in 20 years that I have been asked to sign a damage waiver while checking into the hotel. One family had their 70 year old grandparents staying in a room. Before they would let them check out one of the staff went and inspected their room for damage...very insulting.

We had blocked a group of rooms for our team at the Holiday Inn Express - Red Deer. The reservation manager was courtious and efficient. She followed through with all of our requests without a glitch. We were all placed on the same floor near all of out other team members.
All the staff was very responsive and courtious to all of our needs. They allowed us to use their lobby for a pizza party (they were even as nice as to take the pizza boxes to the garbabge for us!)
The rooms were exceptionally clean. We loved the bedding (which looked brand new, and the beds were super comfy!).
Upon check out the staff was delightfully thoughtful. They asked us how our stay was, and we told them we would definatly stay here/refer this hotel to everyone we knew.
I would highly recommend this hotel for any group. Two thumbs WAY up!

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Red Deer July 8 and 9. I booked online but confirmed over the phone. We asked for adjoining rooms or rooms beside each other. At check in they were not able to provide us with these.

We arrived approx. 3:30 to be told our rooms were not ready so we decided to spend some time visiting family. We were not told why the rooms were not ready at such a late time.

We were also not told that the hotel was under major construction. Before swimming at the hotel pool, we asked if the pool was open and they told us yet, but when we all arrived to swim they said, "sorry it's closed" They did pay for us all to swim at the rec centre in Red Deer though, but it was an inconvience to pack up and head over there.

I think all in all this is probably a poor two star hotel and you would be worthwhile checking out a newer hotel in Red Deer. The hotel management should be letting people know that their hotel is under major construction, or at least be offering discounts to stay there.

We stayed in this hotel one winters night when the roads were too treacherous to continue travel onto our destination in Edmonton. The room was nice, but VERY loud! We could hear the people above us coughing and walking around almost as if they were in our room. People were constantly trampling up and down the hall ways and that sounded like they were walking right through your room. We were awoken at three in the morning when noisey people were walking through the hallway and talking. Our room had a window that you could look into the "health club", I thought this was strange. I didn't use it for this reason, who wants people watching them while they are working out!? When staff asked us how our stay was and we said "too noisey", they did not feel the need to ask how they could correct our unhappiness! Overall, we will NEVER stay in a Holiday Inn Express ever again, nor will we ever give a Holiday Inn a shot either! Holiday Inn really dropped the ball with this one!! You pay too much money for a what they offer!

The rooms are nice and clean and they have wireless internet which is nice. Good Breakfast. THe Pool and Hottub are right at the front of the hotel by the lobby with a glass wall. If you sit in the hot tub your nice bod is on display for people checking in. The pool area also semed a little unkept.

My son's hockey team (7 and 8 year olds) stayed at this hotel while we were in Red Deer for a tournament. We, the parents, found the staff to be unprofessional and unresponsive to our needs. From check-in to check-out they were completely discourteous, after complaining to management we were told we were welcome to checkout if we were not happy and they would be kind enough not to charge us a cancellation fee. We have stayed at this hotel before with no problems, unfortunately the 14 families involved with this stay will never stay in a Holiday Inn again. It would be my recommendation, that if you are in a group to check with the hotel before booking to clarify how accommadating they plan on being.
