"I was waiting for someone to say"
"You definitely get what you pay for. If you want a cheap place to crash and that's it..this is the place. #1 it is located directly behind a xxx massage parlour. This gave it a nice creepy vibe. Customer service was pretty dismal. The whole feeling of the hotel was sad & lonely. The decor was outdated. I wouldn't go back."

"Washrooms were in need of upgrading. Sink was cracked and deteriorating while surround tub and enclosure looked just as old. I did not shower here. My three daughters stayed in another room which upon entering did not smell pleasant or fresh. They immediately had to ask for another room which they got. My youngest daughter has allergies, therefore the chemicals that you use to clean the rooms can cause her various problems."

"It chief asset of this hotel was that it was close to Highway 401 and the cost was reasonable. I appreciated the refrigerator (but it should be defrosted) and the fact that outgoing galls to 800 numbers were free. The weaknesses: The heating unit needed some repair work. The room temperature was about 28 degrees Celsius when we arrived. I shut the unit off but there was still an annoying hum so we pulled the plug. The drapes needed some repair work. There were weights on two of the panels that needed to be attached to help them hang properly. In this way when they were closed they would shut out the strong light from the next door shopping centerís parking lot. The strong light coming through the drapes was very distracting in trying to get to sleep. I looked for a blanket to cover the window but there was no spare blanket in the room. This hotel had a large portion of truckers as its guest. That fact would probably restrict the number of drive in guests with cars considering this hotel as their overnight stop. Would you recommend this hotel to someone else? Yes but you must bring your own blanket."
