Great location, great value, and great service. The rooms are small but you'd think they were decorated by Ikea. Very clean, and the location is perfect for getting to events or meetings downtown. Parking is extra and it is right beside the entrance.

For the price I was really surprised. It is in a great location, the rooms are renovated, clean and comfortable. There is no gym at the hotel but there is a good life next door and you can do there easy enough. The guy at the front desk told me about a deal there and I was able to sign... More

We stayed here back in October 2014 for one night, we needed a no frills stop over while travelling around. We chose this hotel because of the location to the Main Station and the cost. The location was perfect, I don't think we could have gotten closer to the station so this was perfect. The room was ok, very tiny... More

Hi The Tilbury Thank you for choosing to stay with us when you were visiting our wonderful city. I am happy you liked the centralized location.

I went and stayed at the Strathcona for a short, work trip recently and was appalled at the fact that the whole hotel seemed to be under renovations. Not only was there a make-shift reception area, as I stepped out of my room, there were drop cloths and tools everywhere in the hallways and men walking around in hard hats.... More

I drove all the way from Stratford with my girlfriend over Valentine's weekend, and Tim Hortons is perfectly right across the street while the weather was too deeply cold (-25C/-13F). Problem is everything are under construction and did NOT get feeling welcomed. That's reason why I got cheap price comparing to other hotels over $200/night in the same area. I... More

This was the perfect place to stay for our situation- we only stayed one day, and we spent most of our time at a concert at the Air Canada Center. It was a very central location, we were perfectly able to walk anywhere we could have needed to be. The room was very cozy (there was only 2 of us... More

Great place to stay! Parking right next door. Cute room and very nice staff! Breakfast was ok..Internet was ok...there were renovations going on so the lobby was a little under construction. All in all - great place to stay and would definitely stay again!

The hotel is close to the Metro Convention Centre and train station, so it's super convenient. BUT, the rooms are super small. The water in my shower was cold the first night, so I asked for someone to check on it and they replaced a part, but it was still lukewarm. I didn't have any bars of soap and had... More
