Wow . This hotel is the worst place I have ever stayed in. Booked through Hotwire , ended up with this nightmare of a "hotel". The inside is dingy and musty and in much need of some TLC. Staff is slow and difficult to understand . Virtually no parking . There's a tiny section for maybe like ..3 or 4... More

Stayed here Feb 4th as we were going to Massey Hall to see Billy Idol. Perfect location for getting there, just 2 roads & a 10min walk. The hotel was cheap so I rate it by price. First the staff, excellent, friendly & very helpful. The room was a decent size, had a flat screen tv on the wall &... More

We stayed here one night in a double room, and this room didn't at all look like what was in the photos. The room was filthy, the tub was mouldy, and the radiator had fallen off the wall. The room is cramped - there is very little space around the bed, which takes up almost the entire room. When we... More

We have since hired a pest control company to solve this issue and to continue maintaining our property. We are confident that these issues will be controlled moving forward. We will also be...

We stayed for three nights and our experience was excellent. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Room, linen etc was clean. Excellent location - CN Tower, Eaton Shopping Center etc. are at a walkable distance. Fantastic pricing. Highly recommended.

Stayed one night for a concert at the casino. Clean and compact. It's a 2 star so nothing fancy but it gets the job done. If you are looking for a romantic getaway then go to a 4 star. Free breakfast was ok...again nothing fancy - toast and cereal, juice and coffee. If just looking for a place to sleep... More

My two day stay at knights inn Toronto downtown was fantastic. It was walk-able to all the tourist attraction. The rooms very old, but properly clean and it was affordable. I still have to see some more of Toronto, for which I will be back to stay with Knights Inn Toronto. Breakfast was very minimum, but enough to get going.... More

Modest, clean rooms but small. If traveling for short duration its good place to stay. Staff is attentive. But if you are travelling in canada be prepared to spend about 4000 to 5000 u.s. dollars on average for a family of four assuming that you drive from the u.s. to your canadian destination. Cost of train, flight and bus fluctuate... More

Located in Downtown Toronto, Couldn’t find another hotel at the same price range (less than $100) . Looks like they did recent renovation and updating the rooms made. For a budget travel this was the best and awesome place to get a perfect nap and some free breakfast before I left. Thanks to hotel management

The staff of Knights Inn Toronto welcomed us without any previous reservation and offered us a room for 2 even with a discount. Overall impression of this hotel: nice, simple and friendly staff. Good price for what is offered! Breakfast is included! It is in good walking distance of downtown. Give it a try :)
