          The only decent part from staying there was the breakfast.

          Breakfast

          5.0

          Close to the street car

          The check in clerk was unable to perform his duties in an efficient welcoming manner. Thewas unable to manage his time and remained on a phone call while myself ans several others stood in line, rather than place the caller on hold and handle the checkins and then the issue on the phone. Additionally, he was unable to accomodate my request for a smoke free room, even though the hotel is listed as strictly non smoking then argued with me about it. When I produced my reservation with this information on it, he said nothing, and I still wasnt certain that my request would be accomodated. My keys faled to wrok more than they worked, the tv remote did not work, and the property is sorely in need of an overhaul due to the mold in the bathroom. I felt lucky to escape there with my health in tact

          No hot water. Could not change the time on the alarm clock which was 2 hours ahead of the time. Tv was very fuzzy and only a few channels would come in. Smallest room ever., Parking was 2 blocks away then they wanted you to walk back to the hotel and charge you 12.00 for parking. Would never stay again or recomend them to anyone

          The location is very good, cz is very close to the Street Car Stop at Queens street x King Street x Roncesvalles street. Street car is like a light trail. Breakfast is good, bedroom is clean enough.

          The room was too small.

          Breakfast was good for the rate.

          Rooms were small and cramped to stretch around.

        • Single
          7.4

          Very helpful and friendly staff. Easy travel from there to harbour front area and the great price made taxi fares justifiable. Not a noisy area in the night.

          Room is compact at best. Very small window

          Room smell like pot Hookers in the hallway mold in bathroom cobwebs loud sex in adjacent room

          5.0

          Breakfast. Room and facility was good but there is a lot of scope for improvement.

          Ventilation is poor. So room is cold sometimes and very noisy as it is located on a busy street. The air conditioner was very noisy. Room is crowded with huge furniture. It can be spacious. There was a moist odor in lobby. It can be avoided. Tv remote did not work. Carpet had a few spots and so did edges of the room.

        • Single
          2.8

          Room was way too hot which could not be controlled AC was do loud it could not be used Room was so small you could hardly move Room was not vacuumed in three days

          Everything Could not recommend to anyone

        • Older travelers
          5.0

          Rooms are very small and next to the streetcar station very noisy. Room was booked for 2 people and only one set of towels left. Parking

          Really Old small and unrenovated Rooms.
