old looking beige hotel in downtown Peterborough
Posted Aug 12, 2016
This holiday INN hotel is quite old and needs to be really updated and refreshed with something much more modern, too much brown/beige and flower wallpaper everywhere, looks like a 1990 hotel, room door was quite hard to open as well, the red and green carpet was also very very ugly and old .
The brown looking room had a fridge in it but no microwave there is a fee for getting one, the beds were really tiny (two double beds) but very fresh and confortable, nice choice of pillows.
The gazebo restaurant facing the river was great , the menu was very attractive and the burgers and fries we had were absolutely delicious. The pool was great on this hot hot summer day, the kids had a blast. Nice to go for a walk from there on the boardwalk or downtown Peterborough with lots of shops and restaurants around, lots of choices for restaurants as well.
There is a movie theatre just one block away, you can walk to it to watch a movie. Right downtown Peterborough. Quite loud the traffic in the morning from the bedroom window. The air conditioning in the bedroom was very convenient but so loud. The price was honestly high for what it is as no breakfast was included and this is old looking place. There is also a no frills just beside the hotel, very convenient for shopping for little things you forgot at home and little snacks.
There is also a Tim Hortons just across the street that we found very convenient for our morning coffee, as well as a National sports store with lots of selection.

Great to hear that you enjoyed our Gazebo riverside patio while you were in Peterborough and that you had a chance to explore other areas of downtown. You will be happy to know that we will be undergoing a hotel renovation in the very near future which we are excited about.
