The Good
The Holiday Inn Express Whitby received very strong reviews and guests frequently praised the location, the staff, and/or the guest rooms.

The location of the hotel was well-liked for a couple of reasons. Firstly, several guests indicated that there was a selection of restaurants in the vicinity surrounding the property. Additionally, guests often mentioned that they liked being close to Highway 401.

The staff at the hotel were practically unscathed by reviewers as the hotel's employees received almost nothing except compliments. They were commonly described as "friendly" and/or "helpful" but some guests were much more emphatic. For example, one guest said that the staff were "great" and another guest called them "extremely accommodating."

Numerous guests also felt as though the hotel had nice guest rooms. Several guests said that they were "spacious" and they were commonly described as clean. Occasionally guests indicated that liked having a fridge and microwave in their rooms and some guests said that their beds were comfortable.

The hotel's breakfast also appeared to be a strong point. Several guests felt that it offered good selection and that the food was high quality.

The Bad
This hotel did not receive very many complaints at all. However there was one area that guests weren't totally happy about as the price of the hotel's room rates elicited some negative responses. 

Many guests considered their room rates to be "pricey" and some guests drew comparisons to other hotels. For example, one guest said that the Holiday Inn Express Whitby was "a bit pricey compared to other (Holiday Inn Express hotels) or similar" properties. Another guest focused on Whitby and said that the hotel was "nice but pricey compared to other hotels" in the area.

Occasionally there were also moderate complaints about noise at the property however these concerns seemed minor.

"Holiday Inn Express hotels overall are a very good value for the money. This hotel was no different except the housekeeping staff where very noisy in the hallways starting very early in the morning. Not all guests leave at 7am."

"Reno's or not, it's still the best bang for your buck."
"Even though the lobby was going through some renovations, which was no problem, there should have been a sign or information that the breakfast area was still going to be open. We would have taken advantage of that had we known and gotten up a little earlier before we departed."

Michael from Ottawa, ON CA rated Holiday Inn Express Whitby Oshawa 10 out of 10 on August 12, 2005 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Just two things. 1) I'd put a fan in your fitness centre to keep the air circulating. 2) the grade up from the pavement into your driveway is too step; although it's only about 4 feet deep. But even at slow speed the front end of my car grazed the pavement. And you can tell by the scrapes that cars are commonly doing this!"
