Dated bedding and furnishings, however the bed was comfortable. No complaints about the cleanliness of our room. TV is small, looks out of place and is swallowed up by the wall. The included breakfast at Don Cherry's was pitiful. Stale croissants, muffins, cereal and coffee. No fresh fruit or juices. Only ate there one morning, couldn't be bothered the next.... More

Omg. I have no words. 170$ for a seventies style room. Old blankets. Plug in heater. When i needed more blankets was given bed sheets and an old blanket. Sunk in mattresses.

Clean room, nice bathroom, great complimentary breakfast arrangements with Don Cherry's next door. We got a seniors discount, and then a hospital visit discount when we presented a business card from the nursing station in the ward. All in all a stress free stay at an otherwise stressful time.

Stayed here for a week while doing some business in the city. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Rooms choose with a microwave and a decent size bar fridge. WiFi is free and fairly quick. Will stay there again when I'm back in the area.

Management response:

We try our hardest to make long term guests feel at home with the extra features in our rooms like the microwave and fridge that we provide in every room. We are happy that you were able to take advantage of these while you stayed with us Martin P. Looking forward to seeing you again More
