Editor's "Best Value" Picks Aug 15, 2014 | Musetta R.
Why these hotels? My picks are hotels that offer exceptional value for the price in the greater Toronto area. Good budget hotels are rare, and hard to locate in Toronto due to the vast number of hotels available. I did my homework to source some options that offer a lower priced room without sacrificing too much in the way of comfort and convenience.
650 Evans Avenue, Toronto
Canada's Best Value Inn Toronto has good ratings and prices and is my first choice for value in the GTA. It is newly renovated in 2014, and offers a fresh experience to guests with modern and inviting rooms at a great price. Guests highlighted the convenient location, the comfort of the beds, the friendly and prompt service of the staff, and the hot breakfast.

It's located just off the Gardiner Expressway, about a 20-minute drive to downtown Toronto and 12 minutes to the Toronto Pearson airport. The shops and restaurants of Sherway Gardens mall are a few minutes walk from the hotel. Canyon Creek Chophouse and Via Allegro Ristorante are about 4 minutes' driving time away for dining.

Rooms come with a smoking preference, the standard room amenities, plus a mini-fridge, microwave and 37" flat screen TV. The hotel is air conditioned and has a 24-hr front desk and offers a business centre and guest laundry, but no exercise room and no elevator. There are BBQ grills and a picnic area for guests to make their own meals on site and relax outdoors. Free amenities include Wi-Fi, a hot breakfast, parking, local calls and coffee in the lobby.
50 Estate Drive, Toronto
The friendly and highly-rated Holiday Inn Express Toronto East is my second pick. It gets high marks from guests for its location which is close to the 401 and downtown Toronto. It's also in walking distance of nearby restaurants. Guests also enjoyed the free breakfast with many quality hot and cold items, comfortable beds with modern bedding, and reliable Wi-Fi.

It's about a 2-minute drive from Hwy 401, making it an ideal resting spot for travellers wanting to explore the attractions in and around Toronto by car. Both the Toronto Zoo and Ontario Science Centre are less than a 15-minute drive away, and downtown Toronto's CN Tower and Ripley's Aquarium are just over 20 minutes' drive from this hotel. There's a Keg Restaurant next door to the hotel, less than a minute's walk away.

Guest rooms feature 37" flat screen TVs with cable, satellite reception and in-room movies as well as all other expected room amenities. Beds are fitted with the new triple sheet coverings with multiple pillow options. Guests are offered rooms in their smoking preference. This hotel is air-conditioned and includes an elevator, a business centre, a fitness centre and BBQ grills.

Free amenities include Wi-Fi, breakfast with hot and cold selections, parking which includes spots for oversize vehicles, newspapers and local calls.
38 Estate Drive, Toronto
The clean and modern Best Western Executive Inn Toronto is located next door to the Holiday Inn Express Toronto East (above). It's also an excellent choice for value and well-reviewed by guests. This hotel offers microwaves and mini-fridges in all the rooms as well as leisure amenities such as an indoor swimming pool, hot tub and sauna. Guests thought it offered great value, enjoyed its proximity to the highway and restaurants, and were pleased with the complimentary full hot breakfast.

It has an easy 2-minute access to Hwy 401 and is about 23 minutes to the CN Tower in downtown Toronto. The Keg Steakhouse on Estate Drive is about a 2-minute walk from this hotel. The Scarborough Town Centre mall with over 200 stores, restaurants and services is about a 4-minute drive away.

Rooms are well-equipped with all the usual room amenities, and feature mini-fridges and microwaves as well triple-sheeted beds with multiple pillows. The hotel is smoke free and air conditioned and features an indoor swimming pool, hot tub, sauna and 24-hr fitness centre as well as a business centre for guest use. There is also 24-hr reception and an elevator to all floors. Offered free to all guests are: Wi-Fi, a full hot breakfast, parking, newspapers and local calls up to 30 minutes.

How to choose a hotel in Toronto

The Greater Toronto Area (known as the "GTA") is spread out over a wide geographic region, so it's important to choose a hotel that suits the activities and conveniences you desire.

If you're flying in and out of Toronto's Lester B. Pearson airport (YYZ), you may want to consider staying at a hotel near the Toronto Airport. However, be advised that these hotels, while convenient for airport access, are at least a 30 minute drive from the downtown core - where you'll find most of Toronto's best shopping, dining and tourist attractions. Of course you could also fly in to the Billy Bishop Airport and be right downtown in minutes!

If you are driving or traveling on a budget, and if you don't mind staying out of the downtown core, you might want to consider accommodations in Mississauga or Etobicoke to save a bit of money on your reservation and overnight parking fees. However, try to avoid driving if you plan to visit Downtown Toronto, as parking in the core can be $30 or more a day. In addition, parking is not included in the nightly rate at most downtown hotels. Having a car in high-traffic areas such as Yorkville, the Toronto Entertainment District and the Business and Financial District can be more trouble than it's worth sometimes, and getting around by foot, public transit or taxi is easy, cheap and oftentimes more convenient.

What to do in Toronto?

If you're in Toronto to shop or enjoy some leisure time, I recommend: 1) Yorkville, an upscale shopping district where you'll find most of the high end designer labels and fashion boutiques and you may want to take in the ROM or Royal Ontario Museum in that area; 2) Toronto's Eaton Centre, a large urban shopping mall at Yonge-Dundas Square that anchors a larger shopping district found along the world-famous Yonge Street in Downtown Toronto, not to mention attractions such as the Hockey Hall of Fame just off Yonge and 3) Queen Street, just west of University Avenue, located in the Toronto Entertainment District, also known for its bars, lounges, nightclubs, and restaurants. 4) Canada's Wonderland is a world-class attraction and don't forget to plan to attend TIFF, the Toronto International Film Festival held at the tail-end of summer each year in Toronto.

If you are an avid foodie and looking to try some of Toronto's diverse restaurants I would recommend the Toronto Entertainment District which is crawling with hundreds of highly rated restaurants and is just a short walk from Toronto's Chinatown. Alternatively staying in the Business and Financial District grants you close access to some of the best fine dining in the world.
