Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Red Deer South
Ranked #6 of 29 Hotels in Red Deer
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed here August 2014 & it was phenomenal! First off the family rooms are large & have all the space you could want to store all snacks and refrigerated food. The water slide is light in colour so not at all scary, even for my three year old, but fun for everyone in our family (including myself and my husband). The front staff is amazing, the food at the restaurant great (great tasting adult options for us, and healthy kids meals), the service at the restaurant was also a highlight. We tipped 25% bc it was that good. All in all an amazing stay, highly, highly recommend.

Dear Jessica R,
Thank you for your review. I am glad to hear your stay was phenomenal! That is the feeling we want every guest to leave with.
Our family rooms we designed, of course, specifically for our families. We know that you need as much space and room to spread out as you do at home to help make your stay a complete success. Also, I am happy to hear your family enjoyed our pool and water slide so much! Our entire team is always working hard to make sure our guests stay is a complete success.
I will ensure to pass your comments on about our Boulevard Restaurant as well. We are proud to be the home of our Executive Chef Emmanuel David and his team. They always know how to leave your taste buds tingling and your tummy full! He is featuring 20 different kinds of wings from Monday to Friday from now until the end of September so next time you are here, be sure to give them a try.
Thank you again for your review and I hope to connect with you again soon.
Yours in hospitality,

Emily Mena
Guest Services Manager

Stay here approximately monthly for business. They are always accommodating and go above and beyond. An example was by Emily, the front desk manager. I'm used to sleeping on a bit of a softer bed at home and the beds they have are quite a bit firmer at the hotel. To help and accommodate me they actually put an extra mattress pad on the bed so there were two to try and make the bed softer. It did actually help as the mattress pads are the quilted thicker pads. All this was done before I actually even checked in and got to my room!
I also like that they put two pillow cases on each of the pillows. In todays day and age I like the extra attention to cleanliness.
The hotel is always clean and it is very modern which is very important to me. The rooms are very spacious, the WIFI which is complementary works well and the restaurant is good value with a nice menu and quick service.

Dear Mark D,
Thank you for your review as well as your loyalty to our hotel. I am glad that you are always happy with the cleanliness and comfortably of our rooms. Our Executive Housekeeper has a very high standard on our cleanliness so our guests feel the way that you do! I am also happy to hear that the extra mattress pad on your bed works so well. We will most definitely make sure that one goes on to your bed each time you are here.
Thank you as well for your comments about the Boulevard Restaurant. I know our restaurant team works very heard to ensure all of the guests dishes are even better and tastier then the last.
Thank you again for your review and I look forward to connecting with you on your next stay!

I have been coming to this hotel for years on business but I have an opportunity once in a while to bring my family down. Emily and Keerthi always ensure our stay is worry free and our needs are looked after. The restaurant is excellent and surprisingly easy on the wallet considering the higher end cuisine they serve.

By far this is the best hotel in Red Deer. Good job guys :)

If you ever need a place to stay in Red Deer I strongly reccomend this hotel. The rooms are huge, super clean with very comfy beds. As well, the hotel (the Boulevard) serves fantastic food (we had both dinner and breakfast there) for a great price.

I will be staying here everytime I need to be in Red Deer and I very highly reccomend it for anyone. I have stayed in a lot of hotels in Alberta and this one is one of the best for sure.

I stay here often for work and one of the main reasons I love it so much is because of the restaurant! The chef here cooks excellent food and the presentation is great! I recommend this hotel to anyone looking to have a comfortable stay and high quality meal all in one place.

Dear adc777,
Thank you for your review and continued loyalty to our hotel! We are very proud to be the home of our award winning chef Emmanuel David. We agree in saying his food is excellent! His culinary creations always leave you wanting more. Right now he is featuring a new promotion called Taste of the World. You buy your tickets for the entire year and come every third Sunday, and each month he features traditional dishes from a different county with his own special twist. If you enjoy his food on a regular basis, you are sure to fall in love with this!
Also next time you here, after your visit to the Boulevard Restaurant, take a dip in our pool and relax in our hot tub. It will be a great end to your work day!
Thank you again for your review and i will be sure to pass his on to the rest of my team.

The front desk and staff where extremely friendly and efficient. The restaurant food was amazing. Pool and water slide was loads of fun for everyone. It was extremely clean and so comfortable. We would most definitely stay there again. 10/10!

Sure, the selling point for me when I booked this hotel, was the reality that their pool included a water-slide. I have children, they require entertainment and activity; I like my kids exhausted when it is time to fall asleep in a new environment. Yet the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites in Red Deer surprised me extensively. The rooms were beyond clean. In fact, my sister who was staying in a room as well at the hotel stated they were practically hypo allergenic. In addition, the pool area was incredibly neat and maintained. In fact, all areas of the hotel were impeccable! Staff was especially respectful and helpful to my children when they asked questions as well. I have stayed in a lot of hotels, and let me say that this hotel surprised me substantially. Thank you for making my children's visit happy, enjoyable and rewarding as a family. Good job!

Dear Jim G,
Thank you so much for your review! I am so happy to hear that your family had a great time during your stay!
Our water slide is loved by kids that come from all over, even the adults too! It sounds to me like you left with great memories with your family and that is our number one goal not only as a Holiday Inn Hotel but also as a family oriented team.
All of our rooms are completely hypo-allergenic as we have a feather free policy at our hotel. We know that those pesky summer time allergies can have a big effect on our guests so we cut it out completely so you don't have to worry!
Thank you again for your great review. I will pass this on to the rest of my team and it will for sure be an inspiration for us to keep doing what we're doing! Hopefully we will be able to connect with your family again soon!
