Warning! The photos on the website are misleading! This hotel is disgusting! We drove by it a couple times before we realized it was our hotel. It's under FULL construction, not just 'renovations'. This hotel is so run down and dirty. Upon check in, the hotel reception area was makeshift due to the construction. The room! Ugh! The bedding was...

Yes, this hotel is undergoing a renovation. Apparently, this renovation has been lengthy as one of the members of our group said it looked in the same condition it did two years ago. You think they would make up for this with some extras. Don't count on it. I tried to call the front desk from our room phone. The...

Drove in and out of the parking lot 3 times, was not convinced from the pictures or the star rating that i was at the right place. This place was under renovation, un organized renovation. This job was a total mess. The place should be shutdown until renos are complete. It reminded me of an old abandoned hotel I assumed...

Booked this for two nights, the hotel is being renovated, not very clean, no amenities. Breakfast was basic, and there were no heaters under the hot foods, so they were cold. The beds were old and uncomfortable, and there was no lobby. You entered into the hotel via a side door and followed some signs to a small office to...

The hotel is under construction. So it's confusing to navigate and looks run down. But the beds are comfy, the staff is great, and they still have breakfast for their guests. Not the best but good enough. Free wifi too

Let's start with the ugly...the hotel is under major construction so it is not an attractive site, but in all fairness the renovations are very much overdue and there really is no pretty way to do the job. The rooms are pretty ugly too, and smell old, but by the looks of the design boards in the lobby I am...

This has to be the worst hotel I've stayed at in over 40 years of travel in Canada. It reminds me of hotels I stayed at in India and Bangladesh in the late '70s, only it's worse. The hotel is basically a big construction site. There are no facilities here. The "lobby" is a tiny desk in a hall. There...
