“Best value at Canadas Best Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

I was on a business trip little nervous to book here but this was very close to where the meeting was supposed to be.Very surprisingly I would say BEST PRICE. BEST LOCAtTION close to so many restaurants as well as liquor and beer store walking distance.BEST STAFF and BEST HOUSEKEEPING. I will be back here again.

Room Tip: Close to office nice and quiet

This is the worst hotel I ever stayed in. Room was so filthy including walls, chairs and fridge and stove and a non-smoking room stinky with nicotine that we requested another room since we couldn't get a refund. Second room was slightly better, but not much as everything was still dirty but at least the chairs didn't have cigarette burns and filth on them and was a non-smoking room that wreaked nicotine. Fridge and stove were also filthy. Coffee maker included but no coffee and no coffee cups. We rented this room online and will never rent again at this hotel....no even suited for a dog.

Room Tip: Don't even bother with this one if you like cleanliness

Good stop over in trip. Great location with many restaurants, right by the highway. Very affordable rooms, with great service the manager was very kind to us. Clean, quiet rooms exactly what I expected.

Don't stay here! Room are outdated and dirty. Hotel full of young adults/teens up partying all night. Bathroom was filthy and smelled of urine. Found a couple live bugs in the bed. People kept pulling on our door all night. Door flimsy....had to prop a chair against it. Random banging on our door as well! Drunk people everywhere!!People smoking in non-smoking rooms. Cigarette butts were thrown all over our van and someone pushed side mirror in. I guess you get what you pay for...it is cheaper than a Holiday Inn or Hilton. Spend the extra $$. So gross! Only good thing is free wireless internet and parking.

We were shown a no smoking room which reeked of smoke. In the second one it was better but there were cigarette burns everywhere.The beds were lumpy, room was not clean, no hot water. It has not been renovated as advertised. The efficiency part such as the fridge smelled foul. the oven wasa filthy. I would not recommend this to s dog. Tehj owners should be ashamed of themselves

We enjoyed our overnight stay. The beds were excellent and the room was clean and comfortable with all the necessary commodities and a polite staff. Convenient location surrounded by good restaurants.
