Its not a bad hotel, its just not that great of a hotel. Looks like one of those old Journeys End from the 1980's re-flagged as a Holiday Inn. Looks like its gets a lot of business as its tired..
This hotel is located right down the street from the Ambassador Bridge, one of the busiest border crossings for trucks in the world. Non stop roaring semi trucks all day and night in front of the hotel. Its can get crazy pulling into the hotel or getting out.
Parking lot is crowded as it may be used for Toronto Airport Shuttle customer parking.
Food choices are limited to a "Grille" inside the hotel which seems overpriced compared to the type of hotel customer who is at the hotel. Everyone seems to walk across the parking lot to Tim Hortons to eat.. Walking across the street can be dangerous.. Views from the hotel include industrial storage or the parade of trucks.
Stayed in a large suite(Which they originally booked us in a small room) which had the first windowless room I've ever slept in. WiFi is horrible unless on the first floor. A/C works sometimes. A/C had to be removed from our room and repaired.Basically you felt like you were in a movie where the hotel stay was going to be interesting. Elevators sometimes worked well, sometimes not.Maids were so-so with service. Tiny whirlpool in room.
To conclude check other hotels in the area and compare before you book at this hotel. Its not a bad hotel, it just needs a major refresh.Its a blah hotel...
