My son and I took a taxi from train station to the hotel. Soon as we pulled up we were greeted by a Hooker! There was also dog poop outside the main front door. Cameras in the street and bars in the doors and windows of the stores near by. Didnt feel safe in neighborhood so took taxis everywhere.

Pretty $#!++¥... I'm definitely used to 'other' hotels. I'll just bullet point the issues that occurred: * No air in my room yet somehow there was air conditioning in the hallway... * Restrooms on first floor were out of service the entire time I was there (more than a few days) * No parking when I requested it a day...

After checking on I contacted the hotel about a super high heat and no windows. It is cool outside btw. When the clerk did not get back to me, as he said he would, I again called a half hour later. His suggestion was that I could leave the hotel if I was not happy. He did arrive an hour... More

We found the hotel on groupon and were excited to stay in a rustic hotel in downtown Toronto. We were also looking for a budget friendly hotel such as an equivalent to a Red Roof as our trip was budget friendly. Unfortunately the hotel was less than satisfactory. The first night we woke up to a flood coming from a... More

Positive: The room and bathroom are small but clean. It is very close to the Sherbourne subway station. From this station, you can take the subway directly to Kipling to transfer to the airport rocket bus. From Kipling, it takes only 20mins to the airport. It cost $3/person for the entire journey (subway+bus). So much cheaper than the other airport... More

Honestly? I was terrified to stay here from all the negative reviews. But, it was NYE, and we NEEDED somewhere to stay. I don't think the people that gave bad reviews have ever been out of the country, let alone stayed in anything less than a 4 star hotel. I found there to be absolutely nothing wrong with our stay....

There is hair everywhere in the bed, we asked to change to another room thinking this might be just an accident, it turned out that the beds are just dirty in this place! It's nothing like the description on Groupon, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

They did it again. Each of the last 4 years we have come here thinking that the administrative handling of things would have improved as the quality of the property has. No such luck. Right from the start there were problems: the actual amount of the charges, the parking reservation, and the actual room that was assigned. The major problem... More

Stayed here for one night. Rooms are very, very small and spartan. Bed, one small chair, tiny bathroom with a standup shower. The ben linens has some stains on them, probably time to get rid of those. The temperature was very slow to adjust ... freezing cold, turned it up and it was very slow to move, and then it... More
