The pros: Reasonable price, conveniently located. Plenty of room. Clean linens, utilitarian but comfortable beds. I stayed there with my son and for $89 US per night we each got our own room Yes...they are former student housing...and are not Martha-Stewart-approved. Especially as compared to the $500/night accommodations my company put me up in while on business in Boston. But...

Loved the building, so easy to find, enjoyed the suite, and so close to all amenities. The only problem that I had was the pillows. The pillows could be better. Slightly dated but all and all, a great place and great price

You'll be staying in a worn-down, dingy student residence. The beds are awful. The furniture generally is awful. Yes, there's a kitchen area, but no bowls, utensils, etc. No microwave. No hangers in the closet. Dirty bathroom. Don't expect much. Wifi reception was poor. Depressing but relatively cheap.

We stayed at the 2 bedrooms apartment . It was clean and at a reasonable price. The kitchen can not be really considered a kitchen. There are no plates or cutlery, glaces or any utility. only a microwave. The vending machine had no water, just coke.

It was hard to find this place. It was not clear that this was a dormitory within a college. The dormitory is not along Woodroffe Ave, and not visible from the street, which is why it is not easy to find.

Was very reasonably priced loved the fact that we had 2 separate bedrooms , the kitchen was a bonus. We travelled with our dog which they happily accepted. Walking distance to shopping, restaurants and Tim Hortons. We will definitely return :)

Great location. Within a 20 minute drive of the downtown area a f major attractions. Plus parking is free. The staff was friendly and the room was comfy and big enough to fit all 5 of us. There's a fridge and eating area as well. Another plus is that it's a 10 min (or less) walk to the mall. It's...

The location is a college dorm on the Algonquin College campus. We were here for a martial arts tournament held across the street at the Student Commons. There is a small shipping plaza directly behind the dorm with everything you need. But the facility does not have the amenities of a hotel/motel. If you know that going in, then you...
