Holiday Inn Express Toronto East
Ranked #69 of 137 Hotels in Toronto
Reviewed 11 December 2011

When traveling for business I primarily stay at Holiday Inn Express, and this is a good one. Nicely appointed rooms, very clean and good service. Your typical better than average breakfast bar just off the very cozy ski lodge like lobby. My only complaint would be there is no wireless in the rooms. The internet in the room is wired, and very fast; however, if you have a tablet computer that does not have a network port, you will have to go to the lobby to get access.

Room Tip: Get a room close to the lobby if you do not have a network port on your tablet computer.

The hotel room and bathroom were both clean. My room included a small mini-fridge and flat screen TV. Breakfast was included in the room rate, and had fairly good variety of options. Decor in lobby and eating area was bright with lots of natural wood tones. Room included free hi-speed internet access. Good business hotel.

Good Afternoon, I along with our group stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Toronto East in October. We had an exceptional stay bar none. The Staff were very friendly and responsive to our needs. From my many years in the Hospitality Industry, I know that consistent delivery of legendary service is the key ingredient to thrive in this fierce and competitive market. This is exactly what HI express maintains in all areas of their operation. The HI Express Toronto East has and holds Quality Performer awards for Excellence and commendable service. In a nutshell, It Shows! Great Location with convenient accessability to local Highways allowing you to get to and from quickly. When my travels bring me to the Scarborough area, Holiday Inn Express Toronto East is My First Choice for my accomodation needs.

I found this hotel to be exactly as expected after reading some of the reviews. It had everything I needed in a hotel without all of the fancy perks and was priced accordingly. Everything in this hotel is a little older and starting to show its age, however it is not run down or anything (for example the gym equipment looks quite old and used, but the appearance was very deceiving). I would stay here again when on business in Scarborough.

Pros:

- Nice, big, comfortable rooms and comfortable beds
- Free breakfast in the morning was pretty good overall, decent selection too
- Workdesk in each room was a decent size and it was accompanied by a nice chair
- The Keg is next door
- The hotel was fairly full and the noise level was very low when I was in my room
- Soaps and Shampoos were nice and replenished daily

Cons:

- Internet was often quite slow when the hotel had a lot of people staying there and I lost my connection a lot
- Not much else within walking distance to the hotel if you like to explore on foot
- They had free coffee, but it was always very weak so I stopped drinking it.

This hotel has an excellent location near the highway and central to Scarborough, ajax and Pickering.

The front desk staff are great and very helpful.

The hotel is showing its age a bit and not up to the standard of most of the newer HI Express hotels.

The breakfast was typical.
