“Would never stay here again!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Arrived at 1:55 pm, received room key and went to room, entered through outside door and was shocked at the state of the room, it had been torn apart and was filthy. The outside was dirty. When my husband went to the front desk to ask for a clean room he was told check in wasn't until 2 pm! We did some sightseeing and came back hours later. The room was cleanER, but not really clean, there was dirt all along the walls. The noise from the construction workers staying there kept us up until the wee hours of morning and then hearing them getting up early made for a pretty sleepless night. Not a great way to start our cross Canada adventure :( This was the poorest hotel we stayed in.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Found the front desk was not always available, stood around waiting to check out when a cleaning lady walked by and just said to go back to my room and leave the key on there to check out. I'm not used to this process at all.
The advertised breakfast was sad, some toast, dry cereal and dry muffin, however it is better than nothing just very little choice.
The hotel has a musty smell to it and is very old. A good chunk of the building appears to be unused looks like it was grand once upon a time. With some renovations this could be an amazing hotel. Not really worth what we paid, the motel we stayed in night before was better than this and we paid less for the motel.

There was a knocking in the pipes in the bathroom at random intervals, housekeeping was not complete, and grounds in general disrepair.
