“Consistent quality”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Having stayed at this Comfort Inn several times, it is my pleasure to highly recommend this particular Comfort Inn.
Hot breakfast offerings meet those specified on the Comfort Inn website - unlike almost all other "Canadian Comfort Inns" that cheap out by offering limited Continental breakfasts.
Rooms are generally spacious and very clean.
The only negative I have to report, is that there is no elevator - which can present problems getting from your room to the front office in winter.

Room Tip: South side of the hotel allows one to walk directly across the parking lot to Tim Horton's.

I certainly cannot recommend this hotel to anyone. We stayed there last Saturdat night. Boy do they need to renovate. Big time. The carpets are stained. The bedspreads are disgusting. Overall cleanliness just does not exist. We found one of the Breath Easy nose strips (used) on our night stand. Yuck. Don't waste your money. Go elsewhere until they decide to put some money back into the place

I would like to apologize for not meeting your expectations during your recent stay with us. We are in the process of servicing all guest rooms

with carpet and upholstery cleaning as well as updating to a new bedding program. Thank you for bringing to our attention the hardened nail polish on the night stand.

It has been removed. I have shared your concerns with our staff and I am confident that we have made improvements to ensure we exceed all cleanliness expectations.

Again please accept my sincere apology.

I know we all have certain things that we like and don't like. I personally don't care if the cream is missing from the coffee maker or I don't have internet service but for me I find stains on furniture and bedding unacceptable. We stayed in a jacuzzi suite on Christmas Day and found that there was stains on the bed, and the furniture and that really is not acceptable to me. The bathroom was very clean and the bath tub was very clean, the beds were very comfortable and soft, however I will not come back because of the soiled furniture.

Please accept our apology for the stains on the bedding and furniture during your stay with us in December. Accidental spills do happen however, it is our responsibilty to ensure they are removed. We have taken measures to correct this with the steam cleaning of the furniture and replacement of the bedding.

I am glad we met your expectations with the cleanliness of the bathroom along with the softness and comfort of the beds. This is the expectation we wanted your entire stay to have.

Again, my sincerely apology. If you reconsider staying again I would be pleased to personally look after your reservation.

Stayed for two days for my son's competition in early November. The booking said it includes continental breakfast only. Surprisingly, it actually served eggs and sausages and equipped with make your own waffle machine. That's a bonus. People at reception desk were also very friendly.

However, one of the mattress was making squeaking noise. Every time when my son moved, it made the annoying sound. We were too lazy to ask to switch after the first night.

Overall, I think the building and the facility need some refresh. Other than that I think the value matches the price.

was a clean hotel for a one night visit and it is very easy to find. could use better pillows and a larger area for breakfast. Would stay again because of the location but not for a long stay. Check out was right beside the breakfast area.....not very inviting

Room Tip: this hotel was very clean but the breakfast area is very small and the pillows in the rooms are horr...

I was at the hotel during the day for a 5 day course so I can comment on the location, staff, amenities, etc but not the actual hotel itself since I didn't stay over. The staff were very friendly. I spoke with a few of them during breaks and they were all friendly. The front staff that I dealt with were very pleasant. It's a good location coming from the Newmarket/Aurora area as it's straight up the 400 and then a quick turn off of exit 94. I found the conference room that we were in was very clean and well lit and the temperature was always spot on. I'd be very happy to attend a conference here again.
