We booked our room only 3 days before we arrived. The McLaren Hotel was a good price at $145 for a standard room with parking. We inquired at The Rydges who was $185 and The Vibe $200. We have previously stayed at The McLaren and had booked a better room with a little courtyard outside. As we were late with our booking we got a standard room which was a little musky and dark but still good value for money, lots of character and even a fire place in our room. The bed was very comfortable and the staff are friendly, we even got a phone call from the manager because we'd left a tee-shirt behind. I'd definitely stay here again, but if you want a shiny new hotel with mod cons it wont be for you.
