My husband and I stayed at this hotel because we were attending a conference and the organizer had booked a block of rooms there. It is inexpensive and in a great location for access to downtown and to the University of Toronto (in fact during the school year it is a student residence).
It was terrible. Our room was very dirty - if you have allergies at all the dust and mold will likely bother you. The bathroom was particularly bad - full of mold, probably because there was no working fan in there. But there are no working fans in any of the bathrooms in that part of the hotel. We asked. There was no television and no internet access; the only way to access the internet was to rent a physical modem from the front desk. There was no iron or ironing board in the room: these too had to be picked up from the front desk, borrowed for an hour, and then returned. Nor were we given any hangers. We had to call and have these brought up to the room. There were no glasses in the room for water, and when we ventured out to find bottled water we found that both of the hotel's vending machines weren't working.
One nice thing to say: the breakfast was included and was much better then you'd find at most hotels. Since it serves as a student dining area as well, there are cereals, eggs, bread type stuff, fruit and vogurt, pancakes, muffins, etc.
But overall: the $15-30 more you'd pay per night to stay somewhere better would be well spent.
