“Bedbugs”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2008

Attacked by bedbugs the first night and the host living in the basement apartment said he had had no complaints. Host mentioned spraying. Spent the entire first night killing some 40 adult and nymphal bedbugs. The next morning I went to hardware store in the neighborhood and purchased an appropriate spray to bedbugs and left and the computer table for the host to see and use. When I returned that evening the spray was lying next to towels. I intrepreted this to mean, do your own eradication. Had to provide own soap and toilet paper, since the soap provided was not even the size of the bar of soap you get in regular motels. Never saw a roll of toilet paper until my 9th of 11 days. This place is no better than an overpriced "flophouse."

I took photos of the dead bedbugs, (See below)

Note: Health Canada of Ontario was notified and will conduct an inspection. A complaint has also been filed with the Toronto Better Business Bureau.

Room was not bad. But not clean. One room's window was broken and owner didn't try to fix.

Although they said accept credit card on the web site, they didn't accept.
