“Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

This motel was chosen based on location from the website. What a delightful surprise it turned out to be! The room was comfy, clean, modern, with wonderful amenities. You wouldn't think this to be as nice and clean as it was, given its location, in an industrial park area. The breakfast that is included with the room rate is worth every penny! Not your "run of the mill" breakfast either! Only down side is No Elevator. We had to literally drag our bags up the stairs when we arrived late at night. I would recommend if you need a place to stay close to the airport.

Ms. Sharon, thank you for choosing Stay Inn. We are a small hotel tucked away but offer the best we can to assure all our guests are taken care of and enjoy their stay.
Our location is actually fantastic. Minutes from the Airport and Downtown, filled with tonnes of retail, entertainment and food and beverage outlets.
Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you next time.

Summary: Good value for money in the (wider) airport area. Nice & clean guest room, good breakfast, friendly staff. Definitely hotel of choice for the area.

The hotel is located in Etobicoke south of the international airport. The neighborhood is not very impressive, but looks / feels safe. The hotel is definitely a car-only destination, because you will need it, for example, to find a restaurant for dinner. The hotel is clean and friendly. Guestroom is well maintained, the ground floor rooms also have a sliding door (locked from inside) to the outside. Breakfast has a decent selection with scrambled eggs, bacon, cold choices of bagels, cereals etc.

A modest but well maintained hotel that offers exceptional value, probably best value in the west end. Consistently clean,comfortable beds and nice attention to detail to make your stay pleasant. Very safe location. While there is little to do within walking distance, its a very short drive to shopping centre, humber college, cineplex and lake. Complementary breakfast nice touch.

Room Tip: Request a second floor room.

This hotel is located nicely outside the downtown within a few minutes drive to many popular locations. The staff is very friendly and after a few stays they treat you like a very valued customer. We were pleased when we were offered a discount price when we mentioned a referral. The breakfast was what we expected and the atmosphere was friendly.

Room Tip: It is far enough off the road so noise is not an issue.

You are right in the middle of everything. I was here for 9 days while moving my daughter into a local college. The staff are very helpful and friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable. They serve breakfast every morning, have in room fridges, blowdryers, ironing boards, and movies. The breakfast is really good. Just like what I'm used to in California. I felt right at home here, totally safe! Oh, and someone bakes these amazing cookies in the afternoon! I plan on staying at the Stay Inn again.

Room Tip: If you have a lot of luggage the lower floors are better because you can move them in through the sl...

Thank you for choosing Stay Inn. It was wonderful having you here for the 9 days. When staying anywhere for this long, it's quite important you feel comfortable and safe. And we are happy to see you were. I'm sure you will be back to visit your daughter and we'd love to see you again. Whether or not you are staying, feel free to drop by for some cookies and coffee.

This hotel is great if you want to stay in Toronto but you don't want to pay a fortune. They have every thing you need. The rooms were comfortable. The hotel is pretty small. it really isn't that far away from downtown. Definitely stay here.

Room Tip: Go with a suite if you are travel with 2 people. Those rooms have a sofa in them

We visited Toronto for vacation, and chose Stay Inn for 4 nights b/c of good reviews and parking lot. It's about a 20 minute drive into Toronto, which I found to be quite parking friendly, with a few $5 lots if you look hard.

Staff was friendly at the Stay Inn. We only made it to 1 breakfast, so can't say too much about that, but the hot water and tea (from Ontario in flavors like raspberry, green tea, honey lemon, etc) was available 24 hours, so I enjoyed that.

Very clean place. Plentiful soap / lotion / conditioner in large dispensers and had pleasant fragrance.

Wi-fi was free, with a great connection!

T.V was a large flat screen.

Hairdryers, iron and board, and mini-fridge included in room.

Safe is located outside at the front desk.

Microwave is in the dining area.

2 little parakeets hang out behind the front desk.

Stay Inn: If you were to make 2 improvements, here's what we would love to see:
1) new carpets - something very musty about the room upon entering...might be the carpets.
2) new beds - they are on their last years
everything else was great!.
We would definitely recommend this place to friends staying in toronto with a car.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. They each have a sliding door that leads directly to the parking lot for easy un...
