Used to live in Toronto for ten years and always wanted to stay at the SkyDome Hotel, but never had an occasion to do so.
Flew into the Island Airport (highly recommended!) to meet up with an old friend who was in town for a few days, and needed a conveniently-located place to crash. Took a chance booking through Hotwire and ended up with this hotel for just under $100 US, everything in. A short walk from from the airport and the entertainment district, and a slightly longer walk to the financial district.
The hotel is much like the stadium that it forms part of - well past its glory days but acceptable and perfectly functional. There were few staff on hand but all that we dealt with (check-in, concierge, lobby bartender) were all friendly and helpful.
Room was clean and comfortable, bathroom was particularly nice - faux marble but really large, and the beds were comfortable. Note that most of the rooms look over the Canadian National rail line and during the day there is a fair amount of noise from the commuter trains (GO Transit).
All in all, under the circumstances I would certainly stay here again.
