“A Comfortable Stay!”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at this budget hotel for 4 nights and it was totally worth the money we paid for. The room was clean and big as well as the washroom. The air conditioner had good temperature and was not noisy at all. The service was not only friendly and efficient but also great as they provide me a microwave without extra charge. In addition, they gave me a reasonable late checkout. As for the continental breakfast, there were not many choices but the make-your-own waffle was really good. Overall, it was a comfortable and satisfied stay.

Stayed February 2014

I stayed two nights in February at this centrally located, very clean and cost effective hotel. Lots of parking, quiet and GREAT staff. When I pulled up, I wasn't sure what to expect, it's an older neighbourhood and the next door neighbour is a gentleman's club. But the parking is safe, the club is quiet - no drama and it's very conveniently located. I could walk downtown or to the river and there are lots of close (short drive) food options. There is also a grocery store 5 minutes drive away and food delivery.

I travel ALOT and stay in lots of 2-3 star hotels for cost reasons. I would definitely stay here again.

Oh, they have free breakfast and I used the kitchen microwave to heat snacks up!

We arrived to the hotel February 8th, had an easy check in, got to our room where I diid the usual bed bug check and found one. We took the bug, in a Kleenex down to the front desk and asked for our money back, which was promptly returned. The owner gave me my money back very quickly and we were out the door.

I have been going to this econolodge for the past 7 years twice a year, the improvement in this place is continually improving. It is not perfect but Mr. Mike Patel is working hard to make it better all the time !

Customer service is great !

I lost a ring 4 months ago the last time I was in town, when I saw Mike Patel this evening he knew exactly what I was talking about and I now have my ring back !

Thank you Mike, much appreciated!

Decently priced hotel close to downtown London, for one night it serves it's purpose. Towels in the bathroom had stains and covered in hair. The so called manager of the hotel needs to take a read of the "commitment to your satisfaction" picture they have on the wall. Very rude and needs to learn about customer service.

Thank you for taking the time in providing us with your feedback regarding your stay with us. When falling short from guests expectations, the staff takes that as an opportunity to better themselves and work even harder to accommodate guests. With our ongoing renovations we are working endlessly to provide guests with newer and better amenities for a more enjoyable stay. We hope that the next time you visit London, we hope to welcome you back with a more pleasurable stay and better customer service!
