We stayed here last week on a Friday night. On the surface the hotel was fine and easy to find off the 400 highway. Breakfast was typical if a HIE. There are quite a few restaurants nearby to choose from too.
Late at night (after midnight) the hotel got very noisy - people running down the halls, yelling in rooms, etc. The walls are paper thin so you heard everything upstairs, downstairs and in between. Although I heard at least one person ask for the individuals concerned to quiet down this did not happen. I am not sure if Management intervened. This did not make for a restful sleep. I understand this could happen at any hotel but ....
The rooms were a good size and generally well kept. My only negative comment here is that the bathroom could use some upgrading. There were some signs of corrosion and the fixtures were quite old.
