I stayed here last minute after leaving later than planned. This was a decent hotel, with a good size room including a fridge and microwave. It was nice to arrive to a very cheerful Alex (despite the late timing) on reception who gave me information about the pool and breakfast which was appreciated. The only issue I had was some...

1:30 am -- there's a room just off the 401! An affordable room! The night manager is smiling! The room is clean and linens look pressed! Big, clean bath. Great night's sleep. Nice, free breakfast staffed by a kind person. I am still tired so thankfully it's a nice place to sit. Went to leave and answered the question, "How... More

Lovely and clean. Fantastic pool. Hot tub was a tad overcrowded with 2 moms allowing their 9 kids in too. At checkout I was asked if I enjoyed my stay and if there was anything that could be improved on. THAT is customer service! :) Would never hesitate to stay here again.

We needed repairs to our house so stayed here because it was so close to our home. Check in was easy, and staff very friendly. The room was comfortable, and clean. I could have lived without the kids running up and down the hall (a lot of sports teams seem to stay here) but they went to bed fairly early.... More

Hotel room itself was great and the stuff that came with our package was there but the small inconveniences that kept coming up made the price we paid not worth as much.

Could someone explain how this is a roll in accessible shower? We reserved a king bed, accessible room. I called to confirm that the toilet especially had bars - otherwise I can't use it.
