Went there for a night on spring break, mostly to give the kids a day of pool fun.
The pool is not the best, it is a rectangle and has no sallow end, and not very big. It is about 4.5 feet depth throughout, so that's not great for smaller kids. And nice and warm, which is much more comfortable for kida. There's a kiddies pool and a hot tub. But the much better attraction is the pirates cove play area, the kids loved it. Lots of nice and comfortable seating areas for the parents.
Comparing it to candinns and clarion as a place to take the kids, it would depend on how much your kids really want to go swimming.
Kids eat free at the restaurant, which isn't anything great but ok. Lots of restaurant options nearby, subway, keg, Boston pizza all across th street. Also nice having a shoppers drug mart across th street.
I remember when it was th old birchwood inn, and the only trace of the 80s is the fish tanks in the elevator. Which I hope they keep, they're great. Rooms are smallish, but comfortable. And very quiet, considering it was spring break and crawling with kids. Nice quality televisions.
Only complaint is the housekeeping. Our room was not cleaned up completely, and that's a big strike against.
