The room was large and had two (comfortable) beds, a workdesk and TV. Sheets and surfaces were clean. The restaurant downstairs serves breakfast at a very reasonable price. That's about all the good that can be said.
There was supposed to be in-room wireless, but it didn't work on my laptop nor on my phone. In the lobby it sometimes worked. As there was no ethernet cable in the room, I resorted to free downtown Windsor wi-fi, which was not as speedy as I would have liked. The front desk couldn't do anything about it.
The bathroom was clean, I'm pretty sure, but as another reviewer noted, the fixtures looked really gnarly, probably from age. The lightswitch and toilet seat, in particular, looked like they were made of plastic that had seen better days. Water pressure was good in the shower and sink, but the faucets were only loosely secured to the counter itself.
The room itself aside, the hotel's location is excellent, especially for those looking to enjoy Windsor nightlife. Many bars, clubs and restaurants are literally right across the street and more were just short walks away. It's also a short walk to the river, City Hall and the St. Clair Centre for Arts.
I felt everything was clean and functional, but for the price, I expected quite a bit more.
