"Under renovation"

"Got one of the renovated rooms.....everything OK. No towel racks and hairblower in bathroom (appears by design) and no electrical outlet. Staff were great, working in less than ideal conditions."

"I was greeted by friendly staff and I was given good advice regarding Midland. My room was comfortable,clean, completely meeting needs. The facilities in this hotel are modest and completly in tune with small town Ontario. The staff were very friendly and eficient. In the event that I have future business in Madland I would use this hotel again."

"If you are going to offer a continental breakfast then I would suggest that you provide a larger venue for it. The room is small and was full when we came in. Maybe they should offer a coupon to a local restaurant or weekly room service in the mornings."
