I think that Ramada is the best budget option in the town (other than the hostels or bed and breakfasts). It's well located amid a cluster of hotels along Kenmount Road about 10 minutes' drive to the city centre. It's handy to the highways, accessing Hwy 50 in 2 minutes and the Trans-Canada in 3. The Avalon Mall can be reached on foot in 12 minutes with 140 stores, services and restaurants.

Guests found clean, comfortable and spacious rooms which are air-conditioned, and come with all the expected amenities nowadays, including a coffeemaker, and cable TV. There are also suites available with full kitchens and separate living rooms.

Hotel highlights include the well-liked PJ Billington's restaurant on site serving 3 meals per day and offering room service. The hotel has a 24-hr front desk, fitness centre, business centre, an ATM and safe deposit boxes. Freebies include: reliable Wi-Fi, ample parking, local calls and newspapers.
