Guest reviews

    Excellent staff. My reservation/confirmation was lost and the staff did their best to find a room for me. I had to take a smoking room as that was all that was available. Ugly smell! Bad experience!

  • Couple

    I called the night before we arrived to confirm that my reservation was there. The frontdesk clerk that answered my call was absolutely fabulous. I asked if we could check in before 3pm because we were scheduled to arrive around 1pm. She assured me that my room number has already been assigned and if there was a hiccup they would make arrangements for us. She was great and made me feel that I didnt have to worry one bit.

    What I didnt like about the hotel: There were a few ants in my room, the wallpaper in my room was peeling off the wall, the sheets on my bed were badly stained along with the towels that we had for the bathroom and the continental breakfast was poorly identified. It was more like a 'Where's Waldo'. We were there for a wedding reception and the napkins and glasses were stained. This is really not a great experience.

    It was just an average hotel. The location was central, but urban strip mall in style. The best things were the beds (comfortable), the TV (large) and the wireless service.

    The place was understaffed. You had to turn on a power switch for the coffee machine and the heating, and we were not told this. The hairdryer worked for two seconds then gave off a burning electrical smell. On Sat. morning, the continental breakfast included in the price of the room was half what was offered on Sun. morning - no pastries beyond a muffin.The location of the bathroom sink outside the bathroom, right in the entrance as you came in the room was practical, but very odd and unsightly. To top it all off, a drunk screamed obscenities in our hallway for hours at night. He and his buddies kept us awake almost the entire night.

  • Group of friends
    5.0

    Location was close to Hwy 401.

    Very tierd furnishings, carpet in need of replacement, musty smell throughout hotel,walls need paint, breakfast room was very small and overwelmed with guests resulting in garbage cans overflowing etc etc,etc.(although the employee was trying her best to keep up) Secure card entrance from parking lot to main hotel was not working..just pull door and anyone could enter. Spend a little extra...find another hotel.

    Needs an elevator for the luggages to take them to the lobby.

  • Older travelers

    close to the 401, shopping and restaurants close by, great for an overnight stay when travelling a long distance.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Easy access to the highway, breakfast included always a good feature

  • 9.6

    Comfortable, clean, easy access to get to places (wedding).

    The noise of the train was quite loud, disrupting sleep. More noise barriers? This is the only reason we would not recommend this location.

  • 7.4

    I was pleased with the size of the room and it's cleanliness.

  • 7.0

    The front desk staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome.

    We stayed two nights and they didn't come and change our bedding or clean our room 2nd day. We did not leave a do not clean hanger on the door. Had to carry two suitcases up two sets of stairs. No clean towels.

  • 5.4

    Front desk staff polite and very helpful

    Maids not efficient

  • 8.2

    Wifi was excellent. The room was well equipped with a fridge, microwave, iron and coffee maker. Made an excellent base for visiting with shops close by.

    Nothing

  • 8.2

    Very convenient from the highway and very helpful staff

  • 8.2

    Excellent breakfast (The eggs) and friendly breakfast staff

    Tub needed repair. The damage revealed light brown stains on the bottom. At first I did not know what the brown stains were. This may be the kind of thing guests should be told in advance because in fact the tub was clean.

  • 7.8

    The staff were very pleasant and the beds were excellent for sleeping! The breakfast menu was varied and tasty.

    We arrived at around 12:30pm and they wanted to charge us $50.00 for early check-in, outrageous! We used our credit card to secure the room and opted to return later to check -in. The HVAC had an annoying rattle when on so we turned it off.
