When I got there it was late and snowing heavily,my cab driver unloaded my luggage whilst I went in to request a luggage cart (which they didn't have) I left my luggage... More

Room was spacious and comfortable.somewhat outdated but clean. Very affordable which is what drew me in. I skipped the breakfast for a tim hortons run but breakfast was included in the price. This is a great place if you're looking for someplace to lay your head and you aren't worried about fancy.

Stayed for one night. Oldish motor inn style. Room smelled off. Beds were ok. Fridge was unplugged for some reason. Managed to get a muffin in the morning. Clerk wasn't the happiest when we checked out. Was charged extra $10 for third person - would have been nice to know beforehand.

This place was clean and the pillow top bed was very comfortable. Like suite style that included fridge and coffee. The desk staff was helpful--helped us find food at the end of a very long, late day. The location was easy to find, quiet, quaint. Would stay again.

Just a one night getaway to meet up with a friend. I chose this hotel based on other reviews and it was a good value. I liked the idea that this is an independent property and not part of a big chain. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable room. This place is a little out of the way and perhaps that's... More

Very clean and well maintained, prices very reasonable and friendly staff. No restaurant but many near buy. Bed was very comfortable. You can park your car in front of your room which is handy. It is close to the airport.
