The Good
Many guests were very pleased with their stays and the hotel received full marks from lots of reviewers.

Guests were comfortable in their well-maintained rooms. They found them clean with comfy beds, nice linens and towels, and newer TVs. Not all rooms had mini-fridges, but guests were able to request one from the front desk.

Guests liked the location, near the highway, but quiet. Guests said it had easy access to Hwy 400, several affordable restaurants nearby and a grocery store just down the street.

Staff were exemplary.

Breakfast received a lot of positive comments from guests. Many felt it added value to the stay and offered a very nice selection of hot and cold choices, with some changes from day to day.

Some took note of the free coffee, tea, cookies and apples in the lobby and bagged breakfast to go for guests in a rush.

Guests also liked: lots of free parking, a strong Wi-Fi connection, well-maintained grounds, a nice view and a clean and new pool and hot tub.

The Bad
Many felt positively about the hotel and its services, but there was the occasional negative feedback.

Some guests missed having a restaurant and bar on site.

Housekeeping or management sometimes dropped the ball and the front desk assigned rooms that had not been serviced. There was also the occasional area in a room that had been overlooked by the maids. These by far were anomalies, though.

Some guests found noise disturbances from: AC units, doors closing, neighbouring rooms, kids in the halls, and fans on the roof of the building on the top level.

There were some nitpicks over the free breakfast which included the use of paper plates and cups and powdered eggs, and the need for more fresh fruit. One guest pointed out that the seats in the breakfast room were stained and should be re-covered.
