The hotel is an average Best Western, but what sets it apart is the extremely exceptional customer service. Every staff member there greats you with a warm smile and a friendly greeting. I spend about 6 to 8 nights a month there and it truly is like a second home.

When I had been attempting to book online, I found that with my CAA discount I would be paying $103.00 / night at this hotel. When we got to the hotel, we found out that this was not the case, and the rates for the hotel increased on the weekend, when I had attempted to book online through the hotel's... More

Recently had a 3 night stay at this hotel...location is decent, if you don't mind adult video stores, witnessed drug deals in the parking lot, and constant construction nearby. Easy access to downtown. My positive experience ends here, however. Imagine my surprise when I returned home to find that I had nearly $300 worth of unauthorized, fraudulent charges to my... More

We had problems with tv remote, faucet in bathroom, small crowded breakfast room, people smoke outside your room and you can not open your window. And there is no fan inside. Bathrooms need renovation and non smoking needs to be reenforced with non smoking inside and outside hotel. Could not wait to leave.

Our family rented 5 rooms here to attend a family wedding in a neighbouring town. During our entire stay spanning four days we were constantly greeted with smiles and pleasant demeanors from all staff. The rooms were well appointed, clean and comfortable. All of the housekeeping staff that we dealt with were professional, courteous and genuine. Arlene Coleman, Guest Services... More

We only stayed the one night as we had already booked another Best Western in Scarborough for the next night, but we would definitely choose this hotel again. We paid only a little more and stayed in a large 'executive' room with a King sized bed. Our room was well equipped with a good sized fridge and a microwave. There... More
