Having stayed at this hotel several times in the past this time I was extremely disappointed! the room looked as if it had been poorly vacuumed and my first impression was that it wasn't very clean. I had reserved four rooms at the time of booking, six months in advance of our stay, and had requested rooms with refrigerators. On... More

Hair on the bed, the cover was frayed, and even though got a non smoking room, the bed smelled of smoke because they probably wash it with bedding from smoking rooms. Pillows are very soft and small. Room is cold.

Spent two weeks here on business. Overall it's an okay place to get some rest. Decent breakfast and all but one of the staff were very kind and helpful. I'll stay again on my next visit because of it's location, reasonable rate and generally warm service.

We stayed at the Comfort Inn for a volleyball tournament March 3-5. The hotel had a great rate for those staying for the tournament and included a decent hot and cold breakfast.

We stayed here for a broom ball tournament in Feb. 2014 with children. Nice easy location, Tim Hortons, Wendy's and Pizza Hut are all next door which was very convenient. Lots of free parking and free wifi. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was included, with a good variety, everything looked good but nothing tasted that great.

Stayed here for a weekend for a broomball event. Rooms were clean, service was great, staff were friendly. As soon as the snow began, the exits were salted. We had the continental breakfast, the bagel I took had mold on it, muffins were dry. So next day we just had fruits and yogurt.
