Wonderful hotel! Friendly staff, epic breakfast, newly renovated. Quiet, big, clean rooms. Definitely am going to stay hear again when in the area. Perfect location: right off highway beside a Tim Hortons and restaurant and shopping mall.

This hotel sits very close to highway, stores and the town. It is right beside a Wendy's /Tim Hortons combo. While the setting is not pretty by all means, this is a great example of what a well managed hotel should be like. The secret lies in the details, and there are many signs that someone is putting a lot of thought into running this hotel. Spotless clean too, from the flower beds over the room to the breakfast area. Staff is very pleasant and everyone greets you with a smile. Julie the front desk manager is a role model for her profession : she made me very much appreciated and welcome, and checked me in in a very friendly way. Very courteous!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the back, should be more quiet.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Stayed there a couple of time for business. The hotel was entirely renovated (hallways, rooms, common areas) and is a big notch above competition (Holiday Inn Express) in regards to the finishes, cleanliness and comfort. The breakfast area is nice and the food quality is also above the competition. You always have eggs and meat (saussage or bacon) and you have a selfserve waffle station. Coffee was excellent.

There are still improvements to do such as:

- Wi-fi capacity is not sufficient. At night wi-fi is unavailable because too many users are trying to connect and those who connect have no bandwith. This is 2013, everybody have devices using wi-fi, hotels should update their connection to meet the demand.

- There are no sheer drapes on the 2nd floor windows. This is strange as most rooms face a parking lot and if you want day light, you have to open night curtains and then everyone see directly in the room. It lacks privacy.

- The room is heated/cooled using an in-wall unit that has no shut-off thermostat. This means the unit runs constantly. It's noisy and I had a difficult time to sleep because of this. There should be a wall thermostat installed to turn the unit off once the set temperature is reached.

- Microwave: Not all rooms have micro-wave and those who have one, it's pretty old and doesn't work well. A decent quality microwave cost 86$ at Walmart. It's worth the investment to put a good one in all rooms that have a fridge.


So bottom line, everything is brand new in this hotel, why skimp on drapes and micro-waves that cost nothing ? Fix that and the wi-fi and thermostat issues and you will be #1 for business travellers in the region by far.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the ground floor as parking is next to each room.

Wow a pleasant stay. I was greeted as a points collector, given a bottle of water, and headed up through the newly renovated halls to my spotless room. There was a paper at my door in the morning, a hot breakfast downstairs, and checking out was the easiest process ever. The staff are extremely pleasant and made for an even more comfortable stay. Definitely a flagship of this chain, and hopefully more will receive this kind of renovation. Great job :)

Room Tip: I was on the second floor, facing the road but it was still very quiet.

We stopped here because our way to Cape Breton. We will stay again. The cleanest linens and rooms. Well worth the price of the room as the breakfast we had would have cost us the third of our room price. Amazing stay The woman who does the breakfast was a very good host part travel advisor for the area. I enjoyed the conveniece of patio doors from our room. Very convenient for loading and unloading of suitcases. The conveniece to the mall and Wendy's was a plus for the children. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!

Room Tip: Ground floors are convenient
