Parent Spotlight: Holiday Inn Sarnia Hotel & Conference Centre

Located along Highway 402, Holiday Inn Sarnia Hotel & Conf Centre is the perfect place to accommodate your kids next weekend tournament. This hotel is in an ideal location to keep everyone in the family happy!

The Holiday Inn Sarnia For Sports Teams

The other weekend, my sons hockey team needed to find a place to stay for his weekend tournament in Sarnia, ON. Finding a location to accommodate the entire family and as well as the entire team is typically not the most fun task. The Holiday Inn Sarnia Hotel & Conference Centre was one of the best tournament weekends we’ve had! The hotel has 216 rooms, with a lot close by to keep everyone happy! The location is equipped with a fitness centre and heated indoor and outdoor pools for the team to blow off some steam.

The Holiday Inn offered complimentary breakfast and free wifi which are essentials when travelling in large groups with young kids. Kids under the age of 11 eat free any time of the day. Free wifi and breakfast for the kids always helps for a less stressful weekend. Moms, you know what I’m talking about! Choosing a hotel is key!

Holiday Inn is Close to the US Border

Best of all the Holiday Inn & Conference Centre is just minutes from the Michigan border. When the boys were at hockey, the moms snuck off to Port Huron for some shopping in the USA. Only 20 minutes away, this was a great quick getaway that was for us moms. It’s always a good weekend when moms get to shop Port Huron’s shopping includes Old Navy, Target, Kohl’s, Ulta, TJ Maxx and a newly opened Cabela’s. Once the dad’s found out about the Cabela’s they just had to go check it out the next day!

Saturday Night we made our way to the Marcin Bowl. I would highly recommend booking a couple lanes in advance, as the staff told us they fairly busy on weekends. Nevertheless, this was a great place for the kids and the parents! Marcin Bowl has a bar and a pool table for the parents and lots of lanes and food to keep the kids busy. The bowling alley was only 3 minutes from our hotel, so we were not hesitant to call a taxi when the parents had a little too much fun.

There’s Lots Going on Nearby

Our short time in Sarnia ON, was a great one. We found lots of activities for entire family to enjoy the weekend away. The boys spent all their free time in the pool and the trip to the bowling alley gave us all a chance to get out of the hotel. The hotel staff were very forgiving about the noise of the team. After talking to locals and staff at the hotel, we are definitely coming back to Sarnia, ON. to experience the city in the warmer months. My kids would have loved to spend the day on the beach with the view of the bridge, and even enjoy some fries under the bridge. I can imagine being along the water in Sarnia’s warmer summer months would be a beautiful place to be. Who knows, maybe we will even look for a cottage here!
