Stopover on our way to Niagara falls. Location is great for us since it's beside my husband's favourite computer store. There are also other stores and restaurants in the area. We also needed a place that could accommodate a dog. The room was clean. Gym has all of the basics and is well maintained. Lotsa variety for breakfast, very good... More

I stayed here on the 23 of January with plans to stay another night. Overall the room was spacious, clean and the bed was comfortable. The hotel is close to the highway and a handful of restaurants. There is a lot of traffic during the day ( but that is just barrie haha). The downfall for me was the noise.... More

We stayed for one night. At check in the attendant warned that there were a lot of kids around and to make sure to tell her if they were too noisy. The noise lasted only for a few minutes around 8:30 pm. The free breakfast was great. It was open from 6:30 am even on a Sunday morning. It included... More

Only a single night stay but a very comfortable room at a reasonable price - exactly what we have come to expect from this chain. Room was spacious and clean, bed was comfortable. Breakfast is basic but good - all we needed.

I really liked, with the exception of the bathroom, our room. Two queen beds, very comfortable and a decent amount of space in the room.

We were given wrong room initially, but upon request it was switched to the one we made reservation for. Not much I can say, nothing significant to remember from this stay. Maybe slightly overpriced for the standard offered if you compare with similar hotels in walk in distance. I did not like breakfasts there.
