The room and the hotel are both quite small even for two people. There isn't a lot around other than a McDonalds and a Burrito Boys but there is a streetcar stop right outside the hotel. Housekeeping staff walked in on us too so make sure you lock your doors!!!

The room is about the size of my closet at home, very old building but, for the price can't complain - certainly not an up-scale hotel and not in an up-scale neighborhood.

It is old, dirty the breakfast room looks like it is in a storage room the quality of offerings was very poor. When... More

room was a bit too small then I was expecting. Cold rooms didn't know how to adjust the heat. channels on the tv came in with static. Should have chose a bigger bed, double is quite small (my fault) Just an ok experience. We got what we paid for.

The front desk staff, manager etc were very accommodating and helpful always. They called me cabs, they brought extra blankets and a heater when I was cold. They were friendly and interested in the health of my husband who was in hospital for major surgery. I have no complaints about my stay at Howard Johnson on Roncesvalles St. Toronto.

Room was well-appointed, neat and clean but small. Breakfast room also attractive, well-stocked and wafflemaker instructions easy to follow. A pleasureable stay.

I didn't expect much coming into this. I know Toronto fairly well, and I was simply looking for something cheap to sleep in for a few hours with a couple of friends. Since we weren't going to be there very long, It wasn't too big of a deal. However, for anyone looking to stay somewhere for longer than one night,... More
