Guests typically enjoyed comfortable stays at this hotel and some guests branded it "the best hotel in Prince Albert" due to it being the newest facility. 

It offered clean and well-equipped rooms with mini-fridges, microwaves and comfortable beds. Rooms on the east side were said to have good views.

The Bad
There was some negative feedback online for the hotel.

Some guests found the room rates high "for an average room".

Some mentioned that the area contained a couple of older hotels which made the Holiday Inn seem less appealing, but upon entry the atmosphere was actually quite comfortable. 

Some guests complained about the parking lot. It was found to be limited when the hotel was full, the entry was not well marked from the main street, and sections of it were not paved giving the sense to some that cars may not be secure. 

Occasionally guests were disturbed by noisy hockey teams that were allowed to run in the hallways, a slow elevator and TVs not working.
