Because of the PanAm games, most places were booked, I went ahead and booked this room for two nights knowing it was some type of college residence/dorm... My stay was interesting, I saw travelers, and students alike, as well as groups of athletes that were there to compete for the games. I would compare this "hotel" to a dingy motel,... More

I have mixed feelings about this place. It is an old Howard Johnsons which has been converted into student housing. It is in a nice location, about 3 or 4 km to Scarborough Town Center which is a nice shopping center and public transportation hub. The price was very reasonable, even for what you get. The negatives are that it... More

the rooms are dark, not too many lights to read normally, and no wifi in the room, but services are great and the employees really helpful. Also the security is excellent: the outdoor will not open at night unless you have your room key with you. you can use the swimming pool when the lifeguard is present. the gym is... More

This was a great and quiet stay. It is a dorm however they rent rooms in the summer at a nicely discounted rate. It was very quiet and everyday my brother and I took the transit into the city, very cheap. They offer discounted tickets to wonderland amongst other attractions. Nice continental breakfast and pool is clean. I will be... More

This hotel is also a place to sleep for students. That's why there's no free wifi in the rooms, but in the lobby there is. There's a swimming pool in the hotel and I think the breakfast here was one of the best breakfasts we've had through our whole tour. There's a laundry room, which we used of course, and... More

We were visiting family and were able to book this the night before for a reasonable rate(69.99) It is right off the 401 and was handy for our purposes. The check in clerk was absolutlely wonderful. The facility is now a student residence and hotel in summer. It is not glamorous but it is clean and comfortable. There is nothing... More

Stay a night at this place with family last weekend. Booked a room with two double beds at CAD77 (including tax and 5% off coupon). Was given a room on Level 6. Quiet surrounding. Mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, flat-screen TV in room. The shower, sink and toilet all worked well. Pros: Plenty of car park, cleanliness of room, clean... More

Great clean room for price. Quiet and clean. Lovely pool (pool is only open 6pm-10pm and closed some days). Best continental breakfast I had. So close to Toronto Zoo and bought discount tickets from front desk. The only downside was a loose over head lamp swang down and bumped me. We payed 86$ and it was awesome for the price!

Dorm room has lots noise like student jumping on upper level and few knocking wall kind harassment. Straight way to explain just stay way to save money and time. We left... More

Staying in Scarborough

Neighborhood Profile
Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
