There's a good selection of hotels within a 17-minute drive of Humber College Lakeshore Campus, and they range all the way from luxury to budget hotels. My picks are weighted mostly for value for the dollar, so I've favoured those hotels that have high guest ratings and lower prices, however, if you can afford a high price tag, I highly recommend the excellent and romantic Old Mill Toronto which is about a 17-minute drive from the college.

The Waterside Inn is aptly named; overlooking Lake Ontario in Port Credit, this cozy and comfortable accommodation, that was once an apartment block, is now a quaint hotel for travellers, many of whom return for yet another stay. Its attraction? It seems that it’s just a pleasant experience in a nice residential area.

Because the rooms are all suites, some with one or two bedrooms and all with full kitchens, guests felt the comfort of having extra space. The layouts are varied and some guests enjoyed larger bathrooms than others, but guests seemed to agree that their accommodations were clean and comfortable.

Guests enjoyed the setting, the lake views from the rooms and the abundance of restaurants in the area, offering delicious and varied dining choices. Many also attested to the quality and appeal of the on-site dining available at the inn.

This is a good choice for guests wishing to access Humber College at the Lakeshore Campus. It’s only an 11-minute drive and there’s space enough for cooking some meals and sharing family times.

(Guests should note that some guests had difficulty connecting to the included Wi-Fi service at the time of writing, however the hotel informs that the problem is being addressed and should be corrected by August 2014.)

The Stay Inn Airport South is my pick for convenience and value. It is a good choice if you want to have less of a drive to both airport and college, about 8 minutes to both.

There’s no shuttle service to the airport, but the hotel is clean and comfortable and offers a very reasonable rate as well, if you consider that there’s Wi-Fi, parking and a (well-liked) hot breakfast thrown in.

It has very good ratings with former guests who enjoyed the service and comfort of this hotel and its convenient location, which is also close to downtown Toronto,15-20 minutes in driving time.

This hotel may be most suitable for those who have cars, as there’s no restaurant on site, and the closest walk-able choices seem to be within a 3-minute drive or 11-minute walk. Sherway Gardens mall offers dining and shopping a 2-minute drive away, but the walk will be about 20 minutes.

Tips For Staying Near Humber College

Humber College Lakeshore Campus is located in Etobicoke in western Toronto on the shores of Lake Ontario.

The college has three campuses: North Campus in the Toronto neighbourhood of Rexdale and the Orangeville Campus, which is located about a 1-hour drive northwest of Lakeshore Campus, in Orangeville. 

Lakeshore is considered the creative campus, as most of the arts programs operate out of this location.
Pay and Display parking is available to visitors for $4 for less than 4 hours, $7 for more than 4 hours, as well as a one-week pass for $35 and a two-week pass for $70. Machines are available in the parking lot, and can be paid with cash, debit or credit.
Getting Around: Driving
The campus is well situated for those driving from anywhere in the Greater Toronto Area. The Gardiner Expressway for east to west traffic is a 4-minute drive, and the 427 Highway for those travelling north is an 8-minute drive from the campus. The 401 Highway is an 11-minute drive, while downtown Toronto is an approximate 25-minute drive, depending on traffic. 

Downtown Mississauga, including Square One Shopping Mall, is a 20-minute drive, and Pearson International Airport (YYZ) is a 15-minute drive from the campus.
Getting Around: Public Transit
The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) operates two routes to Humber College Lakeshore Campus: the #44 South bus from Kipling Station, dropping guests off on campus, and the #501 Queen / Lakeshore Streetcar, stopping on Lakeshore Boulevard. 

Single-ride adult fares are $3, or an unlimited-use day pass can be purchased for $10.75. For more fare and schedule information, visit the TTC website.

Public transit to the campus is only logical from a couple of the below-mentioned hotels, due to having to transfer from Mississauga Transit to the TTC, or to take a GO Train. Mississauga transit fares are $3 per single ride and more information can be found on the Miway website.
Getting Around: Walking
The campus itself is entirely walkable, but spread out over a number of buildings, including the East Building, the Robert A. Gordon Learning Centre, the West Building attached to the student residences and a number of program-specific buildings across Lakeshore Boulevard. To find exactly what you're looking for, there is a campus map available on their website. 

A campus walk program is available for those wishing to be accompanied to their car, or the bus stop any time of day. For more information, visit their website.

There are also hiking, walking and biking trails nearby with views of the city and the lake.
Students and visitors have a wide range of dining options, both on campus and off. A number of fast food restaurants can be found spread out through the campus, including Tim Hortons and Pizza Pizza, to name a few. For a full list of restaurants and their operating hours, visit the Humber College website.
In the performing arts centre, there are regularly live jazz, theatre events, comedy shows and concerts put on by students for the public.

On top of that, there are a number of student-related events throughout the year, including concerts and shows for those attending Humber College.
