I had booked a room here however when I arrived found the room smelly, the lamp shade mouldy, and cigarette burns in sheets and the comforter, the fridge rusty and the bathroom in discussing shape I complained and the workers seemed unphased with my complaints. We ended up leaving and taking our business elsewhere.

I had stayed there a few times with family and friends and I guess the price for a night is pretty reasonable with no hidden fees. I am a room cleaner myself for almost 6 years and I get annoyed if something isn't fixed or cleaned properly. The only thing I would say about the room that I'd stayed in,... More

One of the best hotel to stay in city of Scarborough, always I have noticed here consistent service By front office staff and housekeeping staff. My laptop worked very well to check my e-mail and managed to print from lobby printer. Internet worked supper fast compared other hotels in down town Toronto.

Staying in Scarborough

Neighborhood Profile
Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
