I picked hotels that are sure to please, well priced and close to Canada's Wonderland. Although some hotels offer packages with combined hotel room and tickets for Wonderland, it's smart to compare what you can get online if you pay separately, as online rates can often be cheaper than the specials offered through the hotels. I've noticed also that some of the hotels that offer the packages are older, lower-priced hotels in need of updates, so it's wise to read some of the reviews to see what guests are saying about the hotel before making your choice.
