A few friends and I got double bed room and had the worst stay. The sink had brown water coming out of it, the blow dryer did not even work, and the worst part of all...there were BUGS IN THE BED!!! In the morning, we found one crawling on the sheets. The next day, a few of us realized that... More

That place was horrible! The water was brown and unsafe to drink. The bed was dirty, and it seemed like the sheets hadn't been washed for a month. The front desk service was lousy and they were unwilling to answer any of my questions. Don't stay here!

Great location but very tired looking. Stale breakfast and when asked for more hangars were told no. Also bar fridge costs 10 per day to "rent". Any other hotel I've ever stayed at lets you use it for free. Pretty poor.

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 While the hotel is very outdated, it served its purpose.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.
