We checked into the hotel, we went up to our room to drop our luggage off. We went out for the day and never got back until late, around 12:30. I went into the bathroom and it was extremely dirty. There was hair on the ledge of the tub, dirt all over the shower stall. The desk in the living room area was extremely dirty. I called down to tell the attendant and he said he was sorry to hear about that and he could send someone up in the morning as I told him our son just went to sleep. No one was ever sent up to our room, so we had to try to clean this stuff on our own. Also, the hotel was allowing people who were not even staying at the hotel to be inside, annoying the WWE wrestlers that were there. We had several people tell us that they had followed the wrestlers to the hotel. You would think their would have been someone checking to make sure you didn’t have drunk people stumbling all over the hotel, who were not paid guest.

Great hotel in the downtown core of Saskatoon! The above ground parking is great. Our room service was great and there is plenty of options to order from. Great location for a weekend get away being so close to so many downtown attractions!

This was my first stay. We chose this hotel because our purpose for travel was to see a show at TCU place, which is directly across the street. It was wonderful to be so close to the venue, just a quick two minute walk across 22nd Street, and not have to worry about driving. Indoor parking is another bonus. The hotel itself is nice and clean, though not super roomy. We stayed in a two queen with pullout bed and one of the beds is sort of in a "room". We were not a fan of the frosted glass pocket door on the bathroom, just not very private. Definately would stay here again if going to any event at TCU Place.

We stayed at Holiday Inn as we had tickets for musical at TCU. Great location for mall/ down town shopping and restaurants. Clean, quiet comfortable, good service at check in and check out. Good parking(at a cost). Good breakfast (at a cost), nice cozy lounge. I defiantly recommend this hotel and will defiantly stay again.

Pictures on TripAdvisor are pretty accurate. A clean, updated bathroom with granite countertop. Beds are pretty comfortable (just wish the sheets were better quality) with Keurig and mini-fridge area in the suite. Very friendly service at the front desk. And 2 blocks to a Starbucks.

We decided to stay at Holiday Inn because we were in Saskatoon shopping for Bridesmaid dresses and this hotel was the only one that offered accommodations for 6 adults in a room. We called ahead to see if we could check in early and the hotel offered us a complimentary upgrade to the penthouse suite. Oh my gosh! It was GORGEOUS! Huge windows, full kitchen, two tvs, huge bathroom. We decided since we had such a large room we might as well order room service, which was quick, delicious, and affordable. The penthouse suite would be perfect if you were wanting to do a stagette or an over the top birthday party. Highly recommend!

My family and I recently stayed 3 nights in room 604 at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in October 2017, and the following is my review of my stay at this hotel. A little background on myself: Years ago my workplace had put out an advisory for everyone to check for bedbugs while travelling as there were many reports of people coming home with bedbugs in my hometown. Since then, to protect my family, I started checking my rooms for bedbugs before staying in them using the techniques outlined by Molecular Biologist David Cain and his YouTube videos on how to search for bedbugs. So far I’ve been lucky and found them five times on my vacations prior to staying in a hotel room, and I have been very fortunate not to have taken any home with me. Since then I had decided to document all of my stays in hopes that others including myself would have a better picture on how safe and clean my experience was. My intention is not to put down the hotel in anyway, but really to document my personal experiences staying there. So please don’t be offended… Review cont'd: On a cleanliness scale, I rate my room a 7/10, and I keep it at a “medium” bedbug risk rating. I give it a medium rating because it is a high-traffic hotel and a lot of people circulating in there because of it’s close location to downtown Saskatoon. A recent TV show documentary called Marketplace on CBC Canada, they noted that the Holiday Inn chain had good ratings in cleanliness, so I had very high expectations in my room. But what ended up happening while inspecting was that, I had to change my sheets because of washed-in stains, and the area under and behind the bed mattresses was very unclean and needs to be vacuumed. I found a past tenant’s used sock, pieces of old chocolate, and a very old non-circulated $20 bill behind my mattress which indicated to me that has never been cleaned behind there. I was under the impression that I was supposed to get a walk-in shower in my washroom, which I didn’t get. The showerhead in the tub was broken and they had no maintenance staff available to come in until the following day, which was very disappointing. However, the washroom renovation of a sliding door is an excellent feature in a crappy washroom arrangement. I think all other hotel chains out there should take notes on this sliding door renovation, cause this hotel definitely does it right! More on the plus side, the mattresses on the sofabed was older and worn, however was very comfortable to sleep in. I would almost say it was one of the more comfortable sofa mattresses to sleep in. Room arrangement was wonderful having room in a T-like configuration, and having a big desk area was a plus. And the Filipina cleaning staff was excellent, I mean top-notch! Even comparable to some of the higher end Marriot Hotels that I have stayed in the past. The lobby and restaurant area is excellent, and even a wonderful place to hang out. The parkade is one of the best and cleanest I’ve seen, however it has a low 6’6’’ restriction so no tall trucks or SUVs can park in there. Pros: -My search turned up bed bug free! -sofabed mattress comfortable -Top-notch Filipina housekeeping staff! -Beautiful overall hotel -Best location relative to TCU place and Midtown Plaza -Did not see one Maple Bug in or around the hotel Cons: -sheets were a little unclean -Area behind bed mattress was so unclean I found money in it -Showerhead was broken -feel I didn’t get the walk-in shower as advertised online My overall impression: a bit pricey value, but best location relative to TCU place and Midtown Plaza. I noticed that Saskatoon has a Maple bug infestation problem in almost every place I visited, however I was impressed to say that I did not see a single maple bug in the Holiday Inn hotel! I’d definitely stay here again in the future.

A friendly welcome at reception is always a great way to start your stay! The central location of this property makes getting anywhere in the city easy. Clean, modern rooms with in room coffee and tea, microwave and mini fridge. Comfortable beds and nice linens. You can’t go wrong choosing the Holiday Inn!

They have parking lot built into the hotel. they have buffet style breakfast with real bacon, sausages, scrabbled eggs, fruit. Or you can ask for eggs done your way. Rooms have good WiFi. Close to down town, across the street from, YMCA, Hilton, conference center.

The Holiday Inn on Pacific Ave is the best hotel in Saskatchewan (and Alberta) and my favourite hotel to stay at. The hotel provides a level of service that should be a model to others. I frequently stay here for business and the experience is always perfect. This is led by the amazing friendly service always provided by Lisa at the front desk. Checking in with Lisa exemplifies the great experience here. The rooms are modern and comfortable. The location is perfect as it is right downtown so within walking distance of all the best things to see in Saskatoon. The breakfast experience served in the hotel restaurant exceeds any other hotel I have stayed at. The variety of options at both the cold and hot stations is perfect. Kaylee always provides friendly and quick service here at breakfast. Also great service and options in the restaurant/lounge in the evening. Hotel also feels safe and the inside parking is secure and convenient. This hotel is exceptional and I highly recommend. Other hotels should look to this one as a model.
