As a college residence, this location has the very basics. I stayed for 5 days in early July 2014 and it was as expected. We travelled with a girls soccer team, so we weren't looking for luxury or for things to occupy our time. The breakfast provided as part of our cost was adequate and more than on a scattered... More

Having been out of university for a while, it's a bit of a nostalgic trip to stay in a residence while travelling. What started as a good price online ended up being $90 a night all in which isn't horrible. The rooms were comfortable. There was a tv, fridge and microwave. Internet in the lobby, which earns a =( .... More

I'm a student at Durham College. I have been living in res for about a year now, and the only improvement I've seen is the new store downstairs(ridiculously over-priced!) and wifi (that keeps disconnecting every time!!! i cant do my homework and always have to go at the library!-very inconvenient!). AND another thing that really pisses me off, there's no... More

Our corporate travel agent booked this lodging for us, mostly for the convenient location to Mosport race track. It is a bit closer than all the hotels along 401. However, it is a college dorm, so you need to approach it with the right expectations. I found the rooms clean and fairly up-to-date. There is a small sitting area with... More

and it sure looks like one. Shabby and not particularly clean. Many of the rooms have a bad odor. This is a residence and not a hotel. Our daughter's soccer team stayed at this "residence" for a tournament and the only plus was the girls could play in the hallways. The two bedroom rooms have small beds - a tight... More

There are no hotels in Northern Oshawa...all are along the 401. We were invited to a 50th birthday party for a close friend and wanted somewhere to stay close by. (When we visit we usually stay with our friends but their home was already full with visiting family members.) Durham College Residence was perfect for our needs and exceeded our... More

Upon arriving at the residence, we find out that the two bedroom suite that I had booked over the phone was not available, due to high volume. Which in most circumstances would have been fine, however my youngest child is special needs and an extremely light sleeper, so for the two nights we were there, we didn't get much sleep.... More

A lot of the Colleges in Ontario offer their rooms as accomodation in school breaks. We were lucky here as the Durham residence is relatively new. Also, the $94 guideline price here is much cheaper if you book a weekly rate. You really can't go wrong. We used this as a base to do a lot of travelling, so we... More
