Due to airline connections we had to spend the night in Toronto. So we researched & called several hotels - this one had the best 'telephone presence' so we booked. The close proximity to the hotel is really a 15 minute drive.
Upon arrival the evening desk clerk took it as an affront we wished to check in, but eventually managed to get us a room. We entered the old elevator, wandered down the old hallway and found our room. The only working light was in the bathroom. After checking the bulbs (one was broken) and determining the lamp was plugged in we called down to the desk and were advised by a different clerk to return and we would get a new room. Down we went. Wherein we met the original grumpy desk clerk who advised us we "should have called" "he would have come up to make the lights work".
Once again they searched and finally found us a room, the beds were moderately comfortable. As for the full menu until 11.30 pm, at 10 pm the restaurant was closing - we were able to get a couple of burgers and that was dinner. Before returning to our room we asked about the return shuttle to the airport and were advised to "just come on down".
Since we had to be at the airport at 9:00 we arrived in the lobby at 8:00 to find out the shuttle had just left. We were advised the shuttle would be there shortly. After a 45 minute wait (without breakfast) we were finally advised it was an hourly shuttle. We were late for check in - thank you Comfort Suites.
This hotel seems like it has been retrofitted poorly from an old run down dive.
