Myself and my friend overnight at this hotel. There was a close family wedding we had to attend close by. In my view all was well very comfy stay. Morning breakfast was excellent for the price. Overall I got my money worth. I would recommend this hotel for a short stay.

Small, thin towels, very noisy bathroom fan coupled with the light switch and a seeming inability to curb late night (early morning) guest-generated noise were downers. We chose this hotel for its location vis-a-vis where we were going and whom we were visiting. At Markham Road and the 401, it's convenient for east-west travel as well as south into the... More

This hotel was very clean and quiet. The room was on the smaller side, but other than that was perfect. The staff was friendly and helped us with every need!
