This was our second stay at the Harbourfront Inn, this time in room 210 - a queen bed room on the upper floor. In general, the hotel is dated and the hallways are dark - but if it's clean I don't care. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The air conditioning worked very well and was not... More

We booked a room which we got at the very end, it smelt terribly of smoke (it was a smoking room to be fair), younger son was in another room some way up the corridor, no food available and no drinks, everywhere was shut when we arrived, breakfast is really early so missed it but helpful staff gave me a...

We found our room to be reasonably comfortable but were awakened a few times by the inconsiderate few. Don't think I'll stay here again. Its pricey for what you get. In front of our room seemed to be the gathering place for beer drinking and partying.

We didn't have a great experience but the price was right. Desk clerk wouldn't budge on room assignment even though I made a good case using internet-posted materials. Hall smelled badly like old socks but the room was OK in that respect. Location is quite remote from amenities, so you're captive to their expensive and not very good breakfast unless... More

Cigarette burns in my blanket and when they cleaned the room they didn't wash the glasses. We were given two coffee mugs that were dirty. The door from our room leading to the parking lot had a strong odour of cat urine. Cheap rate, cheap room.

Stayed here on Canada Day and got a great price on the room. Wasn't expecting to be so close to the fireworks either which worked out well. The guys that were putting on the show stayed here as well. Decided at the last minute to check and see if there were any rooms available here to get our holidays started... More

Canada Day is a great time to pay us a visit! Our proximity to the fireworks, as well as other celebrations in the park area, is perfect. Also, with 2 restaurants next door, and another within 2-3 minutes walking distance, dining options are close at hand. Thank you for letting us know that all was to your liking. We look... More

After a long drive it was nice that we had a comfortable and clean room with a dining choice next door. We also enjoyed walking the harbor walk after dinner. We found our room a little dated, but everything was in good condition. Breakfast was better than I expected and we enjoyed the breakfast burritos. I would recommend staying here.
