Read my comments within. We had reserved about 12 rooms for my sons Minor Hockey team and had a horrible experience. No hot breakfast as promised, not even a restaurant to eat at in hotel or nearby. In greasy downtown area where strip club/porn store. Did't even feel safe walking across to gas station. Pool room was freezing as well as water.

Dear Michelle S, Thank you for your review, first of all I would like to deeply apologize for the breakfast situation, the hot breakfast requirement did not make it to the right people to be arranged in a proper fashion. For the other items, I am not sure if you had spoken to other members of your group before submitting this review to us, however I must correct a few points that you have mentioned. We were more than willing to arrange to have your group moved to the Radisson but were told by the team rep that you had voted to stay at the Merit. We have always allowed our guest to use the pool at our sister hotel so I am not sure why it would have been refused at this time. Please contact me directly if you would like to discuss this further, as i would only have the information that was given to me by my staff. Thank you Mike

I stay here regularly for my work and I've found that the rooms are large and the beds are clean. For people who do night shift, the curtains are thick and when drawn closed, lets you sleep during the day pretty well. In the morning they put out granola bars and other sweets like muffins out at the front so you can grab some and go. The owner is a very friendly and understanding lady. Overall it's a good place to stay, some rooms have stoves that you can cook on as well.
