Positive Reviews

Right by the CTrain station

Has a swimming pool

Past guests have been surprised to see that this hotel has a swimming pool. While the pool is small, it gave guests something to do in the evening and provided a way to keep their kids entertained, as well.

Large, clean rooms

Numerous guests have commented on the rooms at this property, saying that they are large and very clean. Having access to a spacious room that has been well maintained was a bonus for guests who were staying at this property, as it was more than they had expected.

Negative Reviews

Not the best breakfast

There have been complaints about the quality of the food at breakfast, as guests have found it cheap and unappealing. In addition, the room in which breakfast is served is very small and this has left guests without anywhere to sit while they eat.

Issues with the elevator

Guests have run into problems with the elevator at this property. There have been times when the elevator has been slow to reach guests and this is likely because there is only one elevator for the entire hotel. In addition, guests have said that the floor in the elevator is dirty and stained.

Difficult to find

There is another hotel that has a similar name right behind this property and, therefore, guests have found it difficult to find at first.
