We stayed 4 nights at the Residence Inn Whitby and found it roomy, comfortable and clean. We enjoyed the quiet the first 2 days, but on the weekend a hockey team of young boys occupied our floor. Our hallway turned into a combination hockey rink, playground and meeting place, with many of the parents joining in the gathering. Running, laughter, loud conversation/shouting, and slamming doors continued past 11 pm, in addition to a yappy dog in the next room. As we returned to our room, stepping over the kids laying in the hall, one of the parents wondered why they would put us in a room surrounded by the hockey team. When we checked in on Wednesday, the hotel seemed largely empty and I don't see why staff couldn't foresee our weekend surroundings, and put us in a room in another part of the hotel. On our next trip to Whitby, I think we'll try the Holiday Inn Express next door.

Dear Rick E.
Thank you for the wonderful comments about your most recent stay with us, I do apologize that the last 2 nights of your stay was disturbed by the hockey team that was on the same floor as yourself. We do try our best to ensure that teams are blocked on different floors than our leisure and corporate guests, however that is not always possible. I apologize that we didn't do a better job of ensuring that your stay was not hindered by these teams. I do look forward to having you stay with us again and experiencing what you did during your first 2 days with us on this recent trip. Please feel free to contact me when you are ready to make your reservations and I will ensure that you are well taken care of.

Regards,
Subash

My husband was down for a meeting and I traveled with him. The hotel is in a good location for my husband to travel to his meeting. Location is great for accessing the main roads and there are alot of places to eat across the road. Hotel staff is very friendly and the rooms are very clean and beds very comfortable. Room had a kitchen and sitting area and for some reason we were given a two bedroom and two bathroom. Lots of room and a great place for a family to stay when travelling.

Dear Maryannes894,
Thank you for the kind words you posted on Tripadvisor regading your last stay with us. It is always great to hear that our guests thoroughly enjoyed their stay with us. We do strive to exceed your expectations and hopefully we did that for you. Our 2 bedrooms are well appointed with 2 seperate bedrooms and 2 seperate bathrooms and are ideally suited for larger families although they do work with smaller ones as well. We look forward to having you stay with us whenever you are in the area again.

Regards,
Subash

Check in was fast and easy. We stayed inn room 211. One can hear an extremely loud air conditioning unit humming just outside the window. The shower had not been properly cleaned as there was a lot of blue shower gel/ shampoo on the shower curtain and walls. The pool area needs some updating. The pool area - hotub only half of the jets work and the floor has lost some paint. The pool - had a lot of debris in the water and the tile surrounding the pool and hotub is extremely slippery and there was hair and dirt on the floor.
Overall the hotel was nice they just need to improve the pool area.

Dear RachelB,
Thank you for the wonderful comments regarding your last stay with us. I must apologize for the experience you had in our pool, we have actually just signed a contract to renovate that area of the hotel and it should be completed by the middle of December. We look forward to welcoming you back to experience it when it is completed.

It was worth revisiting again. It was clean and a great choice when staying for a few days. I checked out the room prior to putting the money down. There was 2 separate rooms and a full kitchen. Plenty of towels, free full breakfast and dinners if you were interested. It was quiet and close to the expressway. Best mattress on the whole trip! Thanks for keeping up a great hotel.

Went to a wedding Sept.14th in Ajax but the only hotel in that city (not counting motels) was booked so we chose the Residence Inn in Whitby, a short cab ride from the reception. The Queen 1 Bedroom suite has a full kitchen with a large fridge, microwave, two range burners and a dishwasher in the sitting area with a couch and a TV with pay movies available. There is a separate bedroom area with a second TV and a full washroom and the suite was clean and comfortable. For some reason the TV in the bedroom can't access the pay movies...only the one in the sitting area can. Coffee and popcorn are provided and while there's no room service, there are several restaurants and fast food places just across the street. Rates are very reasonable and the staff is friendly and helpful. Parking is free and there is a free breakfast buffet from 7 to 10 that you can partake in if so desired. Overall a great choice if staying in the Whitby area.
