I stayed here for 3 nights in August/Sept 2012. I did not expect much since I had read some reviews before making the reservations. For me and a family member, it was excellent. Front Desk service rivaled that of higher star hotels. We had a two queen bed room and the sleeping was terrific.
There were 4 pillows on each bed, 2 firm, 2 soft and marked on the pillowcase. Nice touch. The room was clean and smelled clean. The beds were extremely comfortable. The bathroom was typical in my opinion. It had a lot of room and the general condition of repair was excellent. Everything worked. I am all for saving water, but the water saving shower heads are somewhat weak. However, I managed to stay clean.
There was a mini-fridge in the room. The TV was relatively new and digital.Channel selection was good. Wireless internet was free of charge.
I felt the breakfast area and food selection was top-notch for this type of hotel. It was well organized, well stocked, clean, and there always seemed to be enough room. I don't think the staff get enough praise for their hard work in these breakfast areas. I find people tend to be slobs when the word free is added. It is easy to be critical but you can't argue with the value. The hot selection changed everyday and there were the standard items such as cereals, toast and so on.
The parking was also free but given it is so close to the 401, I never left anything in the car. The back parking area was well lit but I trust no one.
There is a lot of development in the area and new restaurants and hotels seem to pop up every now and then. I frequented Starbucks but there is also a Tim Hortons nearby. Typically, I go into Kingston anyways for the restaurants and the university town vibe.
All in all, I had a great stay and the staff made it even better.
