I tried to reserv on-line, I did not receive a confirmation email. So, I call the location I wanted to stay. Ryan answered the phone, I asked him to check and see if my reservation was in the system. He confirmed that my reservation had not been registered by the system... And said " you should probably try again." (... More

Hotel was old and rundown in an old and rundown part of town - Room was $93 for a King bed, Bed was comfortable, but overall condition of the room wasn't good - When I stay in a hotel the accommodations should be as good if not better than what I have in my home, and they certainly weren't.

I love the value and location of this hotel. I've stayed here twice now, and will definitely be staying here again in 2015. Everyone is friendly and very helpful to especially because I'm unfamiliar to this beautiful city. My whole experience was fabulous and look forward to many more.

Great location, pretty close to everything. A bit of noise from the streetcar yard outside, but I didn't mind at all.. Rooms were small, but not that small. Washroom was a good size. Everything was clean. There are steps, no elevators keep this in mind if you have any disabilities. The front desk was great at night, ok in the... More

Good location outside of the downtown core, with convenient streetcar access. Speaking of which, the streetcar yard is right behind the hotel, so if occasional noise and vibrations keep you up at night, take note. Rooms were very small - no closets, no fridge, the very basic amenities. Room was consistently too warm even with the window-mounted AC unit running... More

This hotel not only lacks professionalism, but the rooms themselves are very small. We were told that the room would accommodate us, being a couple with a child. Upon entering the room, we noticed how tiny it was, and the bed was a twin, not a queen. Went back downstairs again to confirm as we thought it was a mistake.... More

We wanted a hotel close to the Exhibition grounds as we had a few different events taking place there. It is a short $12.00 taxi ride to the grounds. Front desk staff was helpful to call a van taxi for our party of 5. Breakfast is nothing special but the waffles and juice hit the spot and got us on... More

It was nice. The room was cramped with furniture. It was not overly clean. No elevator for my father so we stayed on the first floor but had to endure the screeching of the streetcars all night. Breakfast and the staff were great.
