Editor's Analysis
Updated Oct 18, 2014
The Knights Inn in London, Ontario is a newly-renovated (2012) motel-style property with drive-up access to the rooms, situated on a commercial strip about halfway between the downtown core and the airport (about an 8-minute drive both ways). It's located about a 3-minute drive to Fanshawe College and about 12 minutes to the University of Western Ontario making it an ideal stopover hotel from the colleges to the airport.

This hotel offers both smoking and non-smoking rooms and each room offers a 32" LCD TV with all major cable channels, a mini-fridge, a microwave, a clock, a phone and air conditioning. Hairdryers and iron and ironing board are available upon request. Upgraded rooms have a hot tub. The motel has a variety of room configurations that feature 2 double beds, 2 queen beds, 1 king bed or 1 queen bed. Adjoining rooms are also available.

Free amenities include Wi-Fi in all areas, a basic continental breakfast (tea, coffee, juice, bagels, cold cereal), free parking, free local calls and free newspapers.

The hotel is pet-friendly and allows dogs only for $10 per pet, per night.

Hotel amenities include a 24-hour front desk, business/fax service, coin laundry, ice machine, vending machine, and a playground.

Some nearby area attractions are East Park Intensity and Water World (mini-golf, water park, bumper cars, and the Intake Grill restaurant) which is about a 7-minute drive away and the London Regional Children's Museum which is located about a 10-minute drive away. The Fanshawe Pioneer Village, featuring 30 original and historical replicas of buildings on 46 acres of land, is about a 9-minute drive from the hotel. (All travel times were estimated using Google Maps).

The Good
Most guests who reviewed the Knights Inn seemed to have enjoyed their stay and gave many compliments to the staff, location, cleanliness and price of the hotel, in recent online reviews consulted for this editorial.

Many guests said their rooms were very clean and comfortable. Some guests specifically mentioned that they had comfortable beds in rooms that were surprisingly quiet, although near to a busy street. A few reviewers appreciated having lots of hot water, good shower pressure and soft towels. One guest specifically noted that the hotel provided what she considered to be good quality shampoo, which was not cheap and the same brand she used at home.

Several guests said they were pleased with the modest continental breakfast of bagels, cold cereal, tea and coffee

Guests found the staff to be very friendly, providing quick and easy check ins and check outs.

Many reviewers commented positively on the location of the hotel saying it was centrally located and close to a Tim Hortons, restaurants and shopping, St. Joseph's and the Victoria hospitals.

Guests thought the in-room mini-fridges and microwaves added value to their rooms.
The Bad
As is usual in online reviews, guests offered some criticism and negative feedback regarding the hotel and it's service.

The most common subject of criticism was the continental breakfast. Some guests were displeased that there was such a small choice of items for the morning offering at the hotel, and one person said that it ended early.

A few guests also complained that they had trouble accessing the free Wi-Fi. It seems like the issue for some of these guests surrounded miscommunication regarding the passwords needed.

Other isolated complaints were: flat pillows, no in-room coffee maker, hot tub had loose faucets and it took 40 minutes to fill the tub.
