Editor's Analysis
Updated on Nov 7, 2012
Overview
Located on Argus Road, approximately a 6-minute drive from Queen Elizabeth Way (the QEW/Hwy 403), this hotel appeals to road travellers wanting quick and easy access to the highway, west of Toronto.

All of the 145 rooms at this hotel have free Wi-Fi, a 32" flat-screen TV, a mini-fridge, a microwave, a coffeemaker, a hair dryer and an iron and ironing board. Guests can choose between standard rooms (king or double beds), or more spacious suites (separate bedroom, king bed). Pets are permitted for $25/stay.

Guests can dine on site at the Courtyard Restaurant, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. The Courtyard Lounge offers drinks and lighter fare. There are also a number of restaurants within a 5-minute walk of the hotel. On-site amenities include free parking, an indoor pool and a gym.

This hotel is located about a 34-minute drive west of downtown Toronto. Mall shopping is nearby at Oakville Place Shopping Mall, a 5-minute drive away. Guests travelling by air should plan for a 28-minute drive to cover the 34 km between the hotel and Pearson International Airport (YYZ). (All distances and travel time estimates: Google Maps)

Confirmed with a front desk agent: Wi-Fi and parking (call date: November 7, 2012).
The Good
Guests enjoyed their stay at this hotel, and were particularly pleased with the customer service and with the hotel's location.

Staff were characterized by guests as service-minded, devoted to anticipating and delivering on guest needs. Staff were friendly, professional and courteous, according to guests.

Location was a draw for many guests, who liked this hotel's proximity to the QEW (6-minute drive) and said that this hotel was easy to find. 

Guests praised the food and the service in the on-site restaurant and were particularly impressed with the freshness, quality and taste of the food offered at breakfast.

Rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable and nicely decorated, according to a number of guests.

The Bad
Most of the reviews used for this analysis were positive, but there were a handful of guest complaints. They did not, however, seem to be reflective of the overall guest impression of the hotel.

A couple of guests complained about uncomfortable beds. Guests said that the beds were too firm. One guest felt that their bed was unusually high off the ground.

A number of guests complained about difficulties they had controlling the temperature in their rooms.

A few guests complained about strong smells of chlorine coming from the pool area.

Robert from Ottawa, ON CA rated Holiday Inn Oakville 8 out of 10 on August 23, 2013 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Spacious room, clean, overlooked parking lot"
"Very good location, close to GO station & to our contacts. Check in/out service was efficient, but not overly friendly. The restaurant had a good selection for their buffet breakfast & we had an excellent attendant for two days in our 3 day stay, the same lady. The A/C in room #415 was annoyingly noisy & the pillows on the bed were either too high or too low, even if I used a combination of firm & soft pillows, but they were comfortabe & clean."

Anne from Henderson, NV US rated Holiday Inn Oakville 5 out of 10 on September 14, 2005 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Manager was rude. Didn't reassure us that we wouldn't be charged twice for our accommodations that were booked through your service. Restaurant inefficient. Waited an hour-and-a-half for our meal on Sunday evening. Manager unable to connect friend to our voicemail without our friend having to call twice."

"I was not told that breakfast was inculded in the price on the 6th floor. I found out from a visitor when I was leaving! My room was very warm, couldn't get the A/C to work properly. This is the closest hotel to where I need to be while in Oakville. I will come back as it wasn't a horrible experience. I can only hope that my communicating with you helps resolve these issues. Thank you"

Paul from Winsford, GB rated Holiday Inn Oakville 10 out of 10 on June 23, 2005 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"This has to be the nicest hotel i stayed in on my recent trip to Canada. I recommend this to everybody. If the Holiday chain of hotels are all as good as this i will be staying with them on my next holidays. Opening my window in a morning to see a beautiful courtyard area in the centre of the complex was nice but to see a peacock walking around was even better. Fantastic hotel. 11 out of 10"
