I don't know who they have as heir customer service rep but I've never had someone speak to me so rudely while I was trying to get information. The woman working there flat out told me I was wrong and didn't know how to work the Internet when I was trying to book reservations for 6 couples. I will never... More

The hotel is currently doing renos so if you do stay I recommend you stay in the superior rooms where the renos have been completed. There is a Tim Horton's directly next door if you like your coffee.

I needed separate sleeping spaces as I was travelling with my son. For $120 we had a one bedroom efficiency suite with a second bed in the living area. Very good value. The front desk staff were friendly and efficient. The furniture and fixtures are likely original, so if you believe in paying extra for modern decor, this hotel is... More

I called to get the Wifi fixed for the room and they did not fix it after many times of talking to the front desk. Other people seemed to have the same issue about the wifi as well. In addition, the rooms had very dim lighting and (only lamps) the bathroom lighting was not good.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. I apologize for the poor speed of the internet. On that particular night, New Year's Eve, we had a full house and that may have affected the performance of the internet. Our staff did reset the router several times, but, unfortunately, that did not seem to correct the issue. All the best, George... More

I was very pleased with the staff and the accommodations provided. I would have liked some sort of movie service but the Wi-Fi was good and the breakfast well stocked.

We stopped to check the rates and found this to be more than what we wanted to spend as was last minute emergency. We drove behind the hotel and saw a little restaurant advertising breakfast and lunch so we stopped to check it out. The Marquis Restaurant. The nice man who seated us was topping up our coffee after breakfast... More
