Had to switch rooms, but that didn't help. Sheets and bedspread were protein stained. Toilet didn't flush and I had to sleep upright on the chair just to stay clean. The rooms are rented out per month and the people there don't care what time it is and are very noisy at all hours. Continued until 430 am. Had to... More

I was working in Waterloo. I had back to back shifts and I needed a place to sleep in between. 5 hours of sleep. Room is seedy. Not very clean. Manager seemed to have an "attitude" against women. But you only get what you pay for. $73.45 including taxes.

I know that the price is cheap so I didn't expect too much from it. There was no security to my room! You can open my door through the window that would not lock! We saw 2 rooms of people going in and out by opening their doors through the window. I could not believe it, so I tried it... More

Was searching for a place to stay while on a short visit to Kitchener. The place looked clean from the outside, but inside was not. While the Customer Service was O.K., the room wasn't. Stayed one night and bed bugs consumed me! Had to leave at daybreak.

This Place is crawling with dirty prostitues. Think twice before renting. Prostitues from ( Backpages ) are set up in this hotel. Kitchener Police should really take a close look at this dirt hole. Better yet close this place down.

I booked this place through booking.com after realizing I had to stay over in Waterloo for business but had forgotten to mention to the client I needed to bill for accommodations and didn't want to do so after the fact. So I would have to "eat" as little as possible RE the hotel bill that I wasn't being reimbursed for,... More

my girlfriend and I attempted to stay there over the weekend of Aug 2 - 3 2014. The first room they gave us was as another review stated that it was likely a weekly rental room (swastika) carved into the wall and stab marks as well among other things. The 2nd room was initially a great improvement (5:30pm) however when... More

Room had an a strong stale smoke odor. There was dust on the surfaces of the fir nature and splats on the mirrors. I had to go and buy cleaning supplies. All through the night there we people telling and fighting outside the room for two of the three nights I stayed there. A bad experience over all.
