We stayed 1 night. The hotel is NOT in the middle of the city so dont be fooled even if it says its close to the city, we needed the car. Or if you dont have one, bus or taxi Overall, this was a typical hotel. Room was clean, bed was comfortable and we had no problems. Paid $109 for... More

We stopped here for the drake concert. Area a little shady but an easy bus route to get to it. 2 dollars on the bus from city. Hotel needs updating but staff were welcoming friendly and helpful. Room was large needs items fixing but for 50 English pounds I couldn't grumble. Hairdryer and shower bits included. Cable not the greatest... More

Stayed 2 night with my family including our 12 year old and 4 year old. Take one look at my pictures and you won't stay here. First of all, on some sites this says it has a mini golf and bowling. It does not. Nothing even remotely close to that is nearby. Staff claimed they keep harrassing said websites to... More

A bit out of town but close to the airport and includes a free shuttle. There is a local #17 bus that goes right downtown too but ideally suited if you had a car. Staff were helpful and friendly during our 2 nights stay. When we booked the reviews here were okay but now I agree with recent posts. Big... More

PROS: if you are just needing a hotel for the night because of a lay-over, this hotel has a good location and was very close to the airport. It provided a 24 hr complimentary airport shuttle. The bed was comfortable and the view from Room 1613 was very nice. The a/c in the room worked well. They had all the... More

I stayed for one night, last night and it will be the only night I stay at this dump. I booked pretty late but needed a hotel last as I went to a conference in the city. There are two good things going for the place - it's cheap and the staff are lovely (they have to be saints to... More

I feel bad for the employees that work here because they are extremely nice and take care of you except the bartender. One of my co workers went into the bar to grab a drink and he sat there for 10 mins before the bartender, who was playing on his phone, got up from his seat and finally came over... More

The people that work at the Penrose Hotel are absolutely awesome and so chill. They helped me with anything I needed, extra towels and pillows. Super cool and treated us wedding party with respect and kindness. I know the pictures seem a bit scary but in reality they updated everything and the bathrooms were really nice. Shout out to the...
