Where to begin. They did not have our reservation for smoking room and made this mistake on our stop over before and after our vacation. Property is in disrepair with dangerous ice on all walkways (no effort to clean it up. Beds pathetic; could hear noise of every adjacent rooms. Room not made up. Free breakfast better at homeless shelter then here. Al-round ghetto experience. Spend 20 bucks more and get a real hotel. Shut this place down

Room Tip: pick main floor as no elevators

The room was clean and ready at check in.
The front desk service was horrible. At first I was told that my reservation didn't include parking. When I pointed out that was the reason I was staying, she reread my paperwork and 'found' where it said parking was included. There was no restaurant on site so I was directed to a menu board. I had to place the order from my room as there was no courtesy phone. At checkout, I was charged $1 for the local call. I unwillingly accepted it until I returned to my room to see 'FREE LOCAL CALLS' written on the phone. When I insisted on a refund I was told they couldn't. I was adamant and the clerk finally relented and processed the transaction stating that she 'didn't see what the big deal was ... It's only a dollar'.
The night before, while waiting for my food, I decided to visit the bar. There was no attendant. To get a beer, I had to go to the front dear, get the key, serve myself. I wasn't able to get a second beer because the front desk was 'too busy' to pass me the key.
EXTREMELY DISATISSFIED

I parked my car at the hotel for 7 days and had to pay 90$ tax included with one night stay afterwards. For me it was a pretty good deal. The receptionist was very rude as when I called from the airport to ask about the sign on the shuttle bus she was very offensive that the bus was there and I should have called to ask for it , I explained to her that I wasn't complaining and I just wanted to know the sign on the bus so I can know it at the airport , the shuttle bus has a sign of a different hotel too ( parks inn ) , the washroom was clogged and the room was outdated but it was okay and I didn't smell anything too , breakfast was croissant , coffee,milk. On checking out I found a lady with her dog in the lobby , I didn't know that it's pet friendly , if I knew it I wouldn't book it for sure. But considering what I paid for the parking only I was happy for the deal.

Room Tip: They have a wireless network. You just need an auth number from the receptionist.

My mother and I read the reviews and thought that despite so many bad reviews there were still some people who had written good things about the hotel. Well, it is not worth the money and the bad experience. It is affordable but you end up paying more in stress and unhappiness!!! The hotel has a bad reputation as to how they treat their customers (my mother was told by other travellers as she was waiting over 1 hour for the shuttle). The receptionist was plainly rude, unhelpful and with an attitude (telling my mum that they cannot contact me because I live in Alberta. The receptionist said she could only dial local calls!!!). The room my mother stayed in was outdated and smelly. The bath was clogged. The swipe card to the room did not work. My mum asked about the shuttle before going to bed @ 2am. When she checked out @ 5am and asked when the next shuttle leaves for the airport, she was told that she needed to book first. She then asked the receptionist why she was not told the 1st time, the receptionist answered: well you did not ask!
In simple words: STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOTEL! IGNORE THE GOOD REVIEWS. THE BAD REVIEWS ARE ACCURATE!

Sleep in your car before staying at this place. This place is hard to find, stuck in the middle of an industrial park, was probably built in the early 50s and not renovated since except maybe to add a weird atrium so your room door, which formerly opened to the outdoors, now opens to the atrium. Spend $10 more and find someplace else nearby.

Room Tip: Bring your own food. They have none.

2nd stay at this property. It's affordable to stay in Montreal for a couple of days if you are going to visit family and drive. It's not exactly well connected to the public transit. The parking lot is huge, but most of the closest spots will be full with cars that stay there a long time. The hotel is rated 2 stars so it's not a luxury hotel. Breakfast is decent although limited in variety. Agree with an other rating that the room will influence the quality of the experience. This time, we were warm but the last time it was a bit cold. We had granit countertop while the last time it wasn't. Ultimately, I'll go back for the price.

Room Tip: Even the hall was relatively quiet.

I left my car here while on vacation and stayed 1 night afterwards. No complaints about the parking. I was very unhappy with the room.

The room we were assigned ended up being full of folded-up beds, shoes, and cleaning carts ... it was being used for storage I guess. I went back to the lobby to ask for a new room.
The next room was a smoking room (and it was VERY smoky), but I requested non-smoking when I booked so I went back to the front desk to change AGAIN.
The next room I was given had not been cleaned ... the bed was unmade and the towels were dirty.
The FOURTH room we were assigned looked ok through the window but our swipe card would not work. I went back for a new card. The receptionist made me a new card which also did not work. She then gave me a real key to use, saying that I had to bring it back after.
(All rooms were on the 2nd floor, so I made 6 different trips to the front with my luggage).

I think the key she gave me might have been the master key or something (WTF???????) because at 1am we woke up to the shuttle bus driver and his friend knocking on the door asking for the key back. Not a phone call from the front desk asking for the key, but sending two men up to knock on my door in the middle of the night asking me to open the door for them.

The thermostat didn't work and the room was very hot.

I asked for a discount in the morning ... the new receptionist was sympathetic but said she could only give me a $10 discount because I booked online.
