Thought by paying extra for a king room I would get a better location in the hotel. Hallways were dirty. They Put me by the stairs and every 30seconds the door was slamming. I always stay at holiday Inns for business but will never stay here again.

I stayed here once before in July 2015 and wrote my review with a 1/5 star rating. This time it was great. Great location, feels very safe, hotel staff is friendly and the breakfast is nice. I always find Holiday Inns to be very clean and perfect for a quick, restful night stay. Amenities are nice too. I would stay...

The Holiday Inn Express Dryden never disappoints. It hit the mark again this weekend. The hotel is always clean and the team at the front desk is warm and friendly. There was a high volume of children and families at the hotel but the breakfast area was kept well stocked - it was efficient with lots of choices (including 3...

We stayed here to break up a trip to Thunder Bay. There is a strong 'signature scent' pumped into the vestibule at the main entrance. I am allergic to scents and found the fragrance strong enough to start a reaction (prickly chest, numb lips, numb tongue, itchy throat). When we were checking in, I asked why this hotel is smoke...

This hotel is clean , nice sized rooms. The pool is good also. Buffet was good , the usual buffet for breakfast at a Holiday. The personnel were nice. There isn't much around there, kind of isolated. Free parking is ideal.

I stayed here for three weeks minus weekends and really enjoyed my time here. The staff at the front desk are very friendly and accommodating.

Holiday Inn has always been a great place to stay. 4 of us guys stayed on our way to Wine Lake Camp for our Fishing Trip. It's located close to the Walmart and a A&W Root Beer place. Breakfast is served starting at 6:30 am. Great Staff!

We've stayed at this HI on several occasions and been pleasantly surprised. Unfortunately not this time. Our room was damp & the bathroom door didn't fit in the door jamb. It wasn't as clean as it had been on our previous visits. From other posts here I see that the renovation plans are moving forward so I wish them well....
