Absolutely terrible, no one should stay here. Period. My bedspread was stained with what looked like blood and full of holes that looked like burns, the toilet was clogged and first time I tried to flush it all came up and flooded the bathroom floor - and the bathroom was filthy. The shower water smells odd, the air condition is... More

My room was not ready when I arrived at around 11:30 a.m. I left my luggage in their luggage room and left for the day and did not check in until early evening. By then it was ready and all was well. This is by no means a fancy hotel. Just very basic and rooms could use a fresh coat... More

I read all the reviews before booking and what everyone said is pretty accurate. But, I wanted something cheap and close to main attractions so this was ideal. As others mentioned, it is very outdated and has an overall grunge to it's appearance inside. But, the sheets were clean and I was afraid that if I asked for a new... More

Staffs friendly, location close to fine breakfast and dining and Most of the Toronto attractions. Breakfast was complimentary and it was ok. Room flooring was old and thus not so clean. Bed, mattress, and linens were in good and hygenic condition. Shower was not that great.

I have stayed at this property a handful of times now- definitely a cost-effective option for anyone who needs or desires proximity to central Toronto amenities. Although it lacks the amenities that one would usually associate with Yorkville, a tony neighborhood, the hotel fulfills the basic requirements of what most travellers need: a good (or at least decent) night's sleep....

My boyfriend and I spend the weekend of May 22 here. We stayed three nights and were very impressed! As soon as we got there we were welcomed by a very friendly man and the rest of the staff was very friendly and helpful as well! Our room was very spacious and clean, and the bed was also very big...

This hotel is in dire need of renovations however if you are on a budget and want to stay in the yorkville area the location is perfect. The bed was comfortable but the rooms are from the 60's. It's no 5 star but then again we didn't expect a 5 star. This is a 3 star hotel.

While looking at their wonderful pictures you won't believe u found such a great deal. It's a lie. The ONLY advantage was that we used US funds and everything was slightly cheaper than what I expected. Parking is bizarre and super expensive. So in addition to the cost of the room, you need to pay $35/night for parking. And the... More
