"I thought everything went well except for when we checked in. The girl that checked us in answered phones, left the front desk twice, tended to someone else while we were waiting. While checking us in she answered the phone again and tended to something else with the other girl at the front desk that had nothing to do with our check in. I feel she could have been more atentive to us instead of making us wait forever to check in and making us feel like we weren't important."

"Myself and my colleague found this hotel to be dingy. There were cigarette burns on the alarm clock and there were no bedskirts on the beds. The patio doors were leaky and did not latch properly. The lighting was dark in the hallways and the ceiling were low and claustrophobic. We went to the gym and it had a very old musty smell to it. This smell was also in many of the hallways. There was a smell of hospital throughout the hotel. The main foyer was nice with the exception of the tables shich were covered in dust except in the spot where the newspapers sit in the mornings. The restaurant had fresh buffet in the morning which was nice and the staff in the restaurant was friendly. I would not stay at this hotel in the future nor would I recommend it to anyone who was looking for a hotel in Oshawa."

"The Oshawa Holiday Inn is quite old. The rooms have been re-done and were clean, good room service. The hotel is situated on the East end of Oshawa on 401 and one has to drive to all the stores, restaurants etc for at least 10-15 minutes. But this hotel has a good restaurant and several conference rooms, so it is self contained. Since Oshawa does not have many hotels like this, it can ask the for the high rates which I would not pay otherwise, being so far away from the city core."
