“Overall............. it was awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

i stayed with my friends, check-in was respectful by owner herself and lobby was neat and clean. we stayed in for 2 days and i should say the service was to the same standard as we got at the time of check-in during our whole stay, by housekeeper and front desk guy during day and night time. Although it looked bit busy at evening time because of some people going for party and coming back, hotel staff managed quit decently to keep them quit during night time which resulted a good sleep with quite environment and comfortable bed with neat and clean sheets, breakfast was superb, i mean with such a reasonable rate u get such a healthy and optional full breakfast. And last but not the list location was good, as it was close to downtown and all other needs.

Hello bits764,

Thank you for taking a moment to tell us about your stay. We're thrilled to hear we were able to exceed your expectations and that you found our Downtown location ideal for all your visiting needs. Customer satisfaction is key to every employee in our hotel and I am happy you recognized we try very hard to accommodate every guest during the entire stay.

We spend a lot of money on our breakfast as we love to offer a variety of nutritious foods as breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

I would like to thank you once again for such an amazing review and hopefully we get to see you stay at the hotel again so we can thank you in person.

Chose this hotel for the proximity to Western Fair and great reviews. Didn't disappoint on either front. Quick, friendly check-in where they recommended great dining options. Room was bright and clean, if a little older. Great breakfast including waffles, muffins, cereal, bagels and fruit. Only downside, once again I am placed in a room next to people who don't feel they need to sleep at night-noise until 4 a.m and started again at 6:30. I would love to see the night staff patrol the halls to put a stop to this.

Hello,

Thank you for your wonderful comments about your recent stay at the Econo Lodge! We are doing everything we can to make sure we are providing the highest possible level of service to our guests while we renovate our rooms, and we are so happy to hear that we been successful! We are currently working on updating our rooms and hopefully you can come back to check out our newer rooms. I sincerely apologize about the noise late at night. We never can guess who is going to drink and make tons of noise at night, and if we knew earlier we could have put you in a different room. Our night staffs duty is to patrol the hallways and keep the noise level down so we will surely speak to them and make sure this is being done. Thank you so much for your feedback and we hope to see you soon!

Hello Albino,

I am delighted that you and everyone from the soccer team enjoyed their stay. We really loved having you stay at our hotel as the boys were very calm and peaceful.

This spot was a short 15 minute walk to the fair. The staff friendly. The room clean and comfortible. Very close to VIA as well the bus terminal. Free continental breakfast was enjoyed in the sunny and well appointed room. The owner Mike and his wife Sushila were most helpful and wanted our stay to be a pleasent one.
When we visit the fair again we will stay here. Thanks Heather and Ed

We wanted a competitively priced hotel that was clean, quiet, comfortable, and close enough to the university and city libraries where we were going to do eight days of genealogical research. Our expectations were exceeded. On our first night, the owner/operator Mike P offered helpful directions around the city and suggested good places to eat. They offered ideas of places to see and things to do in the cities we would visit on the rest of our trip. We liked this hotel and the managers so much that we stayed there again on our way back home. These Texans experienced a great introduction to Canada.
