“Clean & Fairly Quiet”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Rooms are large and very modern. Comfortable bed. Wifi sucked. Had full access but not a very strong signal, or just too many people using it at once. So don't try and do a Skype call, it will NOT work.
Breakfast - continental delux... hmmm. For delux there is an expectation of more than a pancake maker. Fresh fruit or yogurt would have been nice too.
Close to downtown area... so not bad.

Room Tip: Not a bad choice of a good clean hotel.

we thank you for your very fair and honest review. We were indeed having issues with our wireless at the time of your visit , which has now been addressed and is operating fine . we do offer fresh fruit ,but I apologize we must have failed to replenish at the time you came down , so sorry .we will strive to keep on top of this. I hope this does not deter you from any future stays.my apologies again.

The property is well located and ideally priced, and offers services required (free parking, breakfast, free wifi, a small gym etc). Even the non-smoking rooms however, seemed a little smelly, as if someone had recently smoked in them without later cleaning. Also as a result of the lowish price some customers are of the less educated sort so can be quite noisy until all hours in the morning. We've stayed there several times over the last few years but will probably be looking at alternatives in the future

I stayed here for business for 5 nights. Across the hall from my room was a family who were living at the hotel. Looked like people waiting to get into city housing. The kids were running through the hallways from about 5 pm to 10 pm. They would also steal the Do Not Disturb sign from my doorknob. Thankfully I kept the deadbolt locked, because I heard the maid trying to get in while I was in the shower and I avoided that awkward situation. I wouldn't stay here again unless I had to, there are plenty of other hotels on Queen St, Days Inn, Holiday Inn right near the mall...look somewhere else, this place is cheap so it attracts that type of people.
