Stayed one night at the hotel. GPS cannot find the location. So you will have to keep going in circles to find the entrance to the place. Reach the Main Street and take a left just before the 'pebbles' book store. There is a university in the front. Drive in the lane into the parking lot of that college and... More

Very clean, quiet room with all the amenities. Staff were friendly and helpful to find restaurants and local sites in the area. Aside from the construction at the parking lot entrance no issues at all. 2 thumbs up

I was surprised that the room consisted of separate rooms, which included very comfortable beds, and a kitchenette.The bathroom was also very nice, but the shower curtains were a tad bit dirty.

Personnel is very friendly and helpful. Student accommodations with the necessities; groceries and LCBO and beer store within walking distance. Suggestions: have Transit map/ Carte de reseau available as brochure and day/ weekpass info; become a kiosk for buspasses. The showerhead needs attention and the fridge needs balancing. Enjoyed our stay.
