This hotel seemed great from the outside. We were able to pull up to our room's balcony which was great. The bathroom was disgusting with mould (see pic) you could see where they tried to touch it up with paint but it was showing through. I didn't even want to take my shoes off in the room it was that... More

I stayed here for two nights while I was in town for business. It's a great location right by the highway. The rooms are great, newly renovated, comfortable bed and sitting area. Hot breakfast was adequate. The only negative about the hotel was the bathroom, it looked out of place in the newly renovated room. The paint was peeling off... More

Room was clean and spacious, with outdoor access for easy loading and unloading of car. Checking in and out went smoothly. Full bacon, egg, waffle, juice, bagel, yogurt, fruit, cereal breakfast was included. Easy access to highway 400. Dining in area is available. Good value. We would return.

This is an older hotel, which we didn't really know, and next time we will definately pick something newer..and cleaner! The first room they put us in had mould on the ceiling in the bathroom. I quickly said something and asked for another room. The next room was better, but also had mould in the corner of the tub. By... More

We stayed here because we trust the Best Western name and because of a recommendation from our son who stayed here last year. The check-in was fast, the staff were friendly and helpful and the room was clean and smelled that way. I don't like walking into a motel room that reeks of Febreeze or some other highly perfumed cleaning... More

I found rests of beer cases in the fridge, the sliding door to the parking lot was open, towels were missing, the entry keys to the room didn't work. All this while I was away working. I reported to the desk and asked to see the security cameras footage but they refused. STAY AWAY OF THIS S-HOLE.

First of all, we notice a soil comforter on our bed, then all night we heard voices coming from all around... babies, kids, men screaming, the place is not insulated for noise. I felt like scratching all night. I just felt llike this place needs a good cleaning, feels grungy, smelly! So.... we crossed over to the Quality Inn next... More
