This hotel is disgusting. DO NOT STAY HERE. first off, no parking. We were told there was a "holding" check in area to leave your car. Then for overnight parking, there was a lot nearby that they charge $25 per night and you're only allowed One vehicle. We had to park 5 blocks away in order to park 2 vehicles.... More

This was the most decent hotel we can find on a very affordable price given the location we wanted to stay.. It would be nice to just walk around the area without having to worry about traffic and parking each time we have to go somewhere else. So for the price we got via www.selloffvacation.com, it was a deal. When... More

We needed a room for 4 overnight in the Yorkville area and booked this hotel for its great price and location. It turned to be perfect for our needs. The concierge was super helpful and friendly. Our room (8th floor) was spotless and ROOMY! The bathroom was spacious and clean and there were 2 good sized closets and all the... More

Dirtiest hotel I EVER stayed in! This is my first time writing a review because I feel like I need to warn people about this dirt box. The carpet was SOOO dirty with stains. The TV was super old along with the furniture. The sheets on the bed had stains on it. NOW the bathroom! I found hair in my... More

We stayed here with my son's high school lacrosse team. First of all, they try to get you to park down the street in a parking garage overnight. I asked if they had anything else and they did - right behind the hotel. Next, they did not book the rooms for the kids. We needed 20 rooms for the kids... More

Thank you for your comments. My apologies...unfortunately, there was some confusion with regards to the rooms for this group. Rooming list was not provided until check in and some of the team rooms were booked by parents. We did our best to rectify the situation and accommodate everyone. Our breakfast room has limited space and can get very busy when... More

A very average hotel, but for this area of Toronto, not going to be able to find something at this price in this area of the city. It is located immediately beside a car dealership - Ferrari's, for those who love cars! Parking is $25/night. The free breakfast is okay.

Myself and my husband stayed here over a weekend. Location was extraordinary BUT that was the only thing this place had going for it. They charged us for parking for 2 days when we only required it for 1 hour when friends met us for dinner, and when we questioned it at checkout the fellow said to call the manager... More

Sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay and you found our beds to be lumpy. We are in the process of replacing some of our comforters. I'm a little confused as to the parking charge issue. Our space is limited and reserved for overnight guests only and we do not allow short term parking. My apologies if you... More
