“Pretty good features.”
Reviewed 10 May 2013 via mobile

Pool is open until 11 but there's so many kids. A couple of weeks ago I stayed in a hotel that was adults only, 10-11.
The hot tub was great.
The guest laundry is out of the way. You have to go through the pool area and then you can't go back the way you came; you have to walk all the way around some meeting rooms.
Coffee maker, microwave and fridge, all add a nice homey touch.
The bed was very clean and comfortable.

A very clean, quiet place to stay with an excellent restaurant in-house. The rooms are well equipped, clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and more than willing to help the visitors in finding the best places to go in the area. The restaurant serves excellent quality food at reasonable prices. I highly recommend their hamburgers, made in house and not frozen. A real treat!

Our stay at the Holiday Inn Truro was great! With its modern decor and friendly staff, we were given a warm welcome upon checking-in. Despite being about an hour earlier than the posted check-in time, we were given our room right away and were able to settle in.

The room itself was clean and well stocked with towels, pillows, and toiletries (the hand lotion was a nice touch). The microwave and mini-fridge were unexpected, but very handy to have in the room (especially for left-overs from a local restaurant).

The location of the hotel was great - within walking distance to downtown shops, victoria park, and the train/bus station.

We had breakfast at the restaurant both mornings of our stay. The first morning we had the breakfast buffet, and the second morning we ordered off the menu. The buffet was good, but I found it a bit over priced. The items we ordered from the menu the second morning were more reasonably priced. In future I would skip the buffet and order off the menu. We also had desserts one night, which were very nice.

The pool, fitness room, and games room all looked great, but we opted not to use them because there were boys staying at the hotel for a local hockey tournament and they had pretty much taken over these areas. On a related note, the staff responded quickly to our noise complaints and made their best efforts to quiet the boys, but they were still running/thumping around after 1 am one night! It's hard to say whether or not we were bothered by them due to poor sound insulation or thin walls, but I think it was just that they were being that noisy, as we didn't hear anyone else during our stay.

I would definitely stay at this hotel again, and recommend it to others. I found it to be a bit on the expensive side given that we had a basic one-bed room, but that being said, it was clean, well-stocked, and had nice decor. The hotel was easy to find, pretty much next to a SuperStore (grocery store), and close to shops, parks, and restaurants. Don't let the creepy looking run-down building near by scare you, despite its appearance, we didn't see anyone hanging around it.

My family and I checked into the Holiday Inn Truro for one night. Upon the initial impression driving up to the front door gives a good impression. The lobby is clean and ghe front desk staff are friendly making check-in smooth. After receiving the room key we were directed to the elevator which was very slow and seemed to have a mind of its own; meaning my wife pressed the button for the 4th floor but it only went to the 3rd floor before heading to the bottom floor. By time I was back from the car with the bags she was still on the elevator trying to figure out if there was another one that goes to the 4th floor but there is only 1 which it pretty small. Another guest on the4th floor said they had the same issue of pressing the button for the 4th floor only to get to the 3rd before being taken only a ride to the basement. We did discover you could get off on the 3rd floor and take the few stairs in the hallway that will access the 4th floor.

The room was clean but a little tight for spacd with two queen beds, a table with a couple of chairs,an entertainment center with flat screen TV plus a cabinet to hang some clothes. There is a mini fridge and coffee maker in the room. The bathroom is basic and relly nothing to write about except the shower had really good presure.

Part of our lower score was related to going to the indoor pool which is part of the games room and exercise room on the bottom level. When we took the kids down for a swim there were no more clean towels. I went to the front desk to ask for more towels which I was told they would have delivered immediately but after waiting 25 minutes they still had not delivered any more towels. I made a 2nd trip to the front to let them know we were still waiting for towels they said the clean towels were coming out of the dryer and would be there in 10 mins which was another half an hour. Another issue we saw were people sitting in the pokl area drinking beer in glasd bottles around the pool area. The final concern was people running and screaming in the halls at 3am waking people trying to sleep. We were told the next day that the police had to remove a person passed out in the lobby in the middle of the night. This was a bit of a concern to us about the security around the building especially during the overnight.

Overall it is a clean place to stay but the rowdy guests and apparent lack of security seems to be a concern to consider.

Spend five nights at this hotel and was impressed by the great friendly service. All employees - front desk, restaurant or bar - were polite, friendly and helpful. Well done ! Food quality was great and prices are very reasonable. Will stay here again if I am back in Truro.

I just wanted to commend the staff at the Holiday Inn in Truro. I never usually write reviews but the kindness that was displayed by all staff has prompted me to do so! From the moment I arrived with the front staff, to the cleaning staff, lunch caterers, and staff in restaurant; they all demonstrated genuine warmth and kindness that truly enhanced my stay! Thanks so much for all the kindness from an exceptionally friendly staff!! Glowing reviews!!
