“Average hotel near the city center”
Reviewed July 4, 2010

Convenient location close to the city center. The hotel appears to be renovated and very modern, but it looks nicer on the pictures. The room has a cheap touch to it. There is no ability to stop in front of the hotel to check in and the staff was rather unmotivated - they never even looked up when we passed by.

The Moda is a nice change from chain hotels and has a personality of its own. As an older building that has been refurbished, it has good character. We had a room facing away from the street, so there was minimal traffic noise. The staff were friendly. I would stay again.

I found the hotel staff super friendly, and location was really nice. However, I could NOT get shut-eye from the street sound mixed with the paper thin walls. Also, the elevator only holds 2 people with luggage, and there is only one. I just think for the price, I'd rather stay up the street at the l'Hermitage hotel and get much more modern comforts and updated hotel.

This hotel is in a great location for downtown and the cocktail and sportsbar within the same building are great, even if they are very expensive.

Decor is quite modern, and maybe a little tattered around the edges. Staff are friendly and helpful. No breakfast on offer. Wifi connection poor and slow.

The main problem with this hotel is that it's not a great place to sleep if you want to sleep. Paper thin walls and no noise insulation between floors means you can hear things going on in other rooms. Can be entertaining to an extent, but not when trying to sleep. Furthermore, some rooms have wood flooring which creates a huge amount of noise for the rooms below. And if you do decide to give this place a go, I strongly advise not staying in rooms near the elevator or stairwell...they are really noisy.

Nice modern decor with large rooms. Apparently new but already showing signs of wear. The bed was large and very comfortable but the high level of street noise required ear plugs. Overall it was adequate and while I would consider staying there again, I'd probably choose somewhere else. Free wifi a big plus.

Cute lobby and room, everything is small though. Location is good, people are nice enough. Others people's hair all over the bathroom. Yeurk! They came up right away, cleaned it up fast and offered breakfast on the house, but the first impression always lingers...I had to check the whole bed before I felt comfortable enough to hop in for the night. I slept pretty well, the mattress was nice and firm. I worked on the laptop for a few hours and the free HSI kept cutting off. A bit annoying. BTW, the SKOAH bath amenities are really great. Would I come back? Only if the price is the lowest I can get for a downtown hotel.

There really was nothing good about this hotel, and I'm not generally one to write reviews or negative reviews for that matter. The hotel staff were rude and unaccommodating, the lobby was tiny, walls were PAPER THIN, very noisy, The beds were super uncomfortable, rooms tiny....was just a terrible stay. We had been travelling throughout Canada and the US, and this was the ONLY BAD hotel we stayed at. There are MUCH nicer places for LESS! Do not stay here if you are expecting a lot. You wont even get a good nights sleep, you can hear the TV through the room next door.
