Our first night on the road we spent in the Mohawk/Hamilton Residence and Conference Centre. It was great. See my review of that property for more details. This accommodation was the exact same set up. It's a college dorm. It has two rooms, each with a double bed. It has a fridge and a microwave and a bathroom. It has... More

It is a dorm, 2 bedrooms, double beds, kitchenette and washroom. Staff was friendly. We just needed a place to lay our heads, this gave us that. Very cost effective. Very plain and dorm like. Not in the best overall condition, but again for the price and the short time spent in the space it was fine. Would be great... More

The front desk service was good. The rooms are spacious but housekeeping not as good as in the past. Still worth the rate for a decent place to sleep. Would love to see the renovated rooms. Parking is good. Breakfast is fine and close to major highways and amenities.

First and last time using a dorm. The staff seemed uninformed about the facility and could not give basic directions to 401 (which was just around the corner) and did not offer to get the information for us. No information was offered about how to get to our room or where/when breakfast was served. We were just handed the key... More

Well it is a bit outdated dormitory but arriving late at night and it was booked almost to capacity they still managed to accomodate us. Two bedrooms, two beds. One Pillow case was dirty on one side but it looked more like a laundry issue rather than a someone used it issue. Breakfast was bagels and cereal and toast, juice... More

First, please understand that I rate my travel experiences based on expectations. A 4/5 rating in this case does not mean this is a 4-star hotel that should be compared to the Hiltons and Sheratons of the world. What a 4/5 rating *does* mean is that it met my expectations, expectations that were tempered by other travellers' experiences expressed online.... More

At first when you walk in, there isn't much. A kitchenette and 3 rooms, 2 bed and a bath. Each bedroom had it's own tv. After staying the weekend there, for what I paid I was extremely happy. Yes, there are lots of kids around, but I rarely ever heard them. The room was comfortable and the staff very friendly... More

We always stay here every year. For the cost of the stay, having a wall and separate room for each bed and having the kitchenette. We are happy to stay in such a place. The rooms are clean. There is a TV in each room. Internet is reasonable fast. There is enough parking. If you are looking for extras, like... More

We were looking for last minute accommodations in Waterloo and found online options only in the $200-$300 range, so we were very happy to find this budget option when we expanded the search to Kitchener. Travelers from the States will find accommodations throughout Canada to be expensive, but may be unaware that in the summer, many colleges and universities make... More

This is the place to be for you who wants to reminisce your time from university. The room(s) was a little dirty and the sound level a little too much. All as it should be in a dormitory. Now this fits all in because this is most of the year a dormitory. Breakfast wasn't that good either.
