A need for more hotel rooms made Kincardine the ideal location for a Holiday Inn Express, says the new hotel’s co-owner.
Dozens of Kincardine dignitaries and business owners gathered in the lobby of the Kincardine Holiday Inn Express and Suites Thursday evening for the hotel’s grand opening celebration. Guests sipped wine, dined on hors d’oeuvres and toured the rooms and hotel amenities.
