This hotel is fine--the room was clean and the location, although outside the city, is convenient to the subway. I would five a 5 star review, but the fitness room was really lacking. I select hotels with the fitness room as a main consideration. This hotel has two pools (inside and out) which is nice. The fitness room was hot... More

If you want slow, personal service then this is your place to sleep and dine, otherwise skip this one. Also, the hot tub doesn't exist so the hotel should remove the amenity from its website. The area attraction discounts were excellent and the hotel is in a great location which were the only pluses. The noise in the hallway at... More

Hotel is sloppy, exceptionally noisy and the rooms are very basic. Bathrooms are tiny and very old as is the bed linen/blankets. We were very disappointed and couldn't wait to leave. Rooms felt old, a little dirty and very dated.

We stayed here for 4 nights and thought it was a great deal. For the price, you get a clean, big room close to everything. We had a rental car and getting to and from here was easy, close to all the nice places in town. Some in out group used the subway nearby without any problems, short walk and... More

We were lucky to get one of the newer rooms. It was a nice room...only complaint is that I was not too keen on the glass door for the bathroom. The front staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was great..right next to Olympic Stadium...with free parking!

We managed to get a last minute 2 day booking during the Montreal Jazz festival week in July this year. The booking was done via Expedia after reading many reviews that were not off the mark. Check-in by Tatiana was friendly and helpful. pointing out the metro station to us, which despite being 'around the corner' is actually a bit... More

This was not my first stay in the hotel, and I would visit again, with some lessons learned. Positive: 1. Perfect location for out-of-towners driving in, or with a rental car. This is next to Botannical gardens and the Olympic park, plus highways. Parking is free (expect $20-25 per night in downtown hotels). 2. Quiet, despite busy location. Older building,... More

I have stayed at this property a few times before (when it used to be The Auberge) and have never been disappointed. It is close to the Bio dome and Olympic Stadium and not too far away from Downtown. The rooms never disappointed us and we were always impressed by the value we got for our dollar. I recommend this... More

My family and I stayed here this past week, great stay at the hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. Wheelchair accessible, clean rooms, nice pools. Good and reasonable priced restaurant in the hotel and in surrounding area. Close to metro or use their friendly shuttle. Highly recommend staying here and plan to return.

Our visit started on July 12th......... Free parking for a start, and if you are looking for a 5* Hotel this isn't it but if you want a hotel that offers helpful service a shuttle (when available) clean rooms and comfortable beds this it. Also the breakfast buffet starts at $12 (INC TAX) for a so-so buffet. Close to the... More
