You get what you pay for! Negatives: The third floor has smoking and pets. Rooms smell like a smoky zoo! We were here as a group and many in group wanted to leave. Some checked out early. Not a good experience. Rooms in our group were dirty with stains on carpet and walls. We arrived at 3 pm (checkin time)and... More

Huge suite in older hotel. Our room was comfortable and clean. Hotel is old but good value. Need to stop the smoking allowed in rooms as is does filter through to other sections. Carpet and paint would not hurt to update. But it was close to our family function and we enjoyed our stay.

We were booked in a pet room with no notice. The smell was horrible. There was hair all over the rug. They could not change our room. They sent someone to vacuum but hair stuck in the carpet. To make it worse we are allergic to cats and my wife's eyes were itching the whole time. Beds were not very... More

The hotel was okay except that we didn't know that they didn't have an elevator. The people in the room next to ours woke us up at 2:30am with thumping on the wall. We phoned the desk clerk and she came up with a security guard at told the people if they had one more complaint they would be kicked... More

There is smoking allowed on half of the third floor we were right beside the cut off. Smell was over the top second hand smoke. Will never be back. They could not move us. I didn't know you could legally have smoking rooms. What a Joke. I would give it a 0/5 if I could. WE should not have had... More

Upon arrival, we let the front desk know that the room had a terribly strong smell of cigarette (and other) smoke, and that there was garbage under the beds and behind/under the side table. The attendant explained that it was a non-smoking hotel. There was something spilled down the box spring that may have been coffee or hot chocolate and... More

This is an older hotel - no elevator, loud fans. But the check-in is fast and friendly, the rooms are large and clean with good beds, pillows, showers etc. A typical Comfort Inn from the older template but with current comfort standards. The prices are a pleasant surprise and the location is good for travelers wanting to get on and... More

My daughter and I stayed here during one of her out of town hockey tournaments in Innisfil and it was a great central location. We usually stay at Choice Hotels when we travel because they are affordable and have an excellent reward structure! The room was very large, it my have been a suite.
