The building itself is unusual for a hotel; it is a three-floor brick structure surrounded by green belt and industrial area. Good area for running. Very quiet as we were there on a weekend. Received a friendly welcome at check-in. It looks like a few upgrades have recently been made. There are still some yet to be done, such as the hallway and breakfast room carpeting. I'd like to have the tradesperson who tiled and caulked the new bath fixtures over to my house. Good job. The room had everything for those wanting a longer-term stay, and it was clean. Nice curtains. The kitchen was new or remodeled in the popular brown found everywhere today. Nice cotton sheets and duvet plus good pillows. Tattered sofa which I'm sure they'll get around to replacing. The included breakfast should be called 'express' rather than 'buffet,' as it is the usual express breakfast seen so often. I have not seen a tip jar here in Canada like at the express breakfasts in the US. The free wifi seemed unsteady and at some points unavailable.
