This might not be the cheapest hotel in the area but you're really paying for location. It's a short walk to a subway station that can take you pretty much anywhere you'd need to go on a trip to Toronto. It's also right down the street from the museum. There's a few nice streets full of restaurants, cafes, and shopping... More

This was not one of the worst hotels I have stayed at, but definitely not the best by far, for the price. Let's start by saying that all of the staff are warm and friendly. Good job to those folks. Breakfast is adequate. I found the bread items to be a bit stale. The milk, juice and yogurt are not... More

The hotel is in a great area, close to a grocery store, convenience store, and nice Cafe next door. Tim Hortons is close by as well. It's a 10 minute walk to Church and Wellsley . TTC is not that far away from the hotel (approximately 5 minute walk). Great customer service from the General Manager, to the front desk... More

This hotel has definitely seen better days, but it's not the worst. Yes, the decor is tired, but the location is great and for the price you won't find anything comparable. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The room was oddly huge, with enough space for a separate living area, but instead there was just a giant... More

Stayed at the Howard Johnson last night with two friends. While the hotel is very outdated, it served its purpose. The room was clean and the bed was comfy! Great location, and right beside Whole Foods, which was convenient.

I stayed there for one week in August, 2014. The location was convenient since I enjoy walking. the accommodation was okay but I was disappointed with the breakfast I expected much more. the custodians were helpful and quite accommodating. A friend got this accommodation for my stay.

A great value hotel in a spectacular downtown location just around the corner from Yorkville, a boutique neighbourhood with great shopping and restaurants. Routinely priced at around $100 per night, you just cannot beat the price. The rooms are clean and well appointed with comfortable king sized beds in many of the rooms. You just can't beat the value of... More

There was nothing fancy or well maintained in this hotel. In fact there is a sign on the side that there is a proposal to flatten the place and rebuild. The staff are friendly , the building is secure, and the breakfast is comparable to a European hostile. The room was not completely clean but it was clean enough. It... More
