The Good
Guests typically liked this hotel, judging from the reviews that were read for this analysis. They considered it to offer a comfortable and clean room at a reasonable cost, in a convenient location.

The location was considered very convenient. Guests with kitchen facilities were pleased to have a Sobeys right next door for groceries. It was a short walk to a large mall with restaurants, theatre and shopping. It had great highway access in both directions and was close to the airport.

Service scored high in the reviews. Guests judged the staff to be very nice, very friendly, helpful and competent. One mobility-challenged guest wrote, "[The]staff helped me from and to my car by carrying my luggage."

Guests described the rooms as clean, spacious and comfortable and as having all the necessary amenities required for an overnight stay. They said the housekeeping staff did a good job of cleaning. Other pleasures included good air conditioning, awesome water pressure for showering, and comfortable beds with nice bedding.

Many thought this hotel offered good value. Guests felt it delivered as much comfort as the larger hotel chains, but for less cost. They were pleased with an included hot breakfast, parking and Wi-Fi. Others who reserved the family rooms with separate bedrooms, bunk beds and extra TV for their kids were quite pleased with the set up and space of their rooms. Yet another reviewer said, "A great deal for the price."

Guests typically liked the breakfast. It was served in the restaurant on site and guests were given several choices for a free breakfast. One guest said, "You get a choice from about five different complimentary breakfast options that includes hot breakfast - served in a separate restaurant building. You can order extra if needed and staff are very nice. Kids loved trying the different options each day." And another was even more enthusiastic, "The breakfast was first class with great service and food."
