“an excellent stay at the Idlewood Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

I have to commend the Idlewood Inn, both for is professionalism and the good location and the friendly staff. Located in Scarborough , it is close to the downtown of Toronto, has good amenities nearby, the rooms are clean quiet and comfortable,the building extremely well maintained, and I enjoyed dealing with the staff , who are very friendly and will go the extra mile to accomadate the guest's every need. All in all, this was a very good experience, and when my friends are travelling I always advise them to consider this Motel, both for price and quality and good atmosphere.

Room Tip: The rooms on the second floor are very quiet

Keep this in mind.. "You get what you paid for" and on that note we paid FAR TOO MUCH!
Rooms are not as advertised in the pictures on their website. They are disgusting. There are bugs (live and dead), I don't think the room has been cleaned in years. There were burns on the carpets, pee stains on the chair in my room, the bed was on a wooden box, there was no boxspring, just 2 mattresses on top of each other, the walls and windows are filthy, the remote for the ancient small tv didn't work, nor did most of the buttons on the tv. It says free wi-fi and 24/7 assistance,but it clearly states on the "rules" that from 12-6AM that there is no assistance, but the office is open 24/7. We were never given a wi-fi access code, nor was it mentioned.
It says free coffee - it's in the morning only, in the office, with plastic utensils that are dirty.
Our neighbours were up until 5AM banging and acting like idiots - but we couldn't call to tell anyone, the phone was broken.
The fridge provided in the room had dead bugs ON it and IN it. The cover for the plug in the bathroom had no cover on it. The tub in my opinion has NEVER been cleaned.
The communal kitchen, well, we won't even go there...

We could have had a room at a different hotel, but seeing that we didn't have a credit card, they willingly accepted a cash payment with gov.issued ID.
Needless to say, I will NEVER return there and suggest you think twice before going yourself..
