The Good
The majority of the reviews sourced for this analysis were positive, with praise going to the hotel's staff, location and rooms.

The hotel's staff were the source of many compliments by reviewers, who characterized them as friendly, informative and helpful with suggestions and directions. One patron noted, "One, particular part-time gentleman, who was I believe Chinese-Canadian, and who operated the front desk, was very pro-active and friendly and made an otherwise gloomy stay tolerable. Professional and friendly staff raise the bar on what would otherwise be a banal experience and the aforementioned gentleman certainly raised the bar".

Numerous lodgers enjoyed the hotel's location, finding it close to public transit, restaurants, shopping, downtown Toronto and a movie theatre. One guest noted, "Turn left The Beaches or turn right the eclectic Leslieville. if you are an out of town tourist that wants to get away from the main tourist area this is the spot for you. amazing restaurants and bars".

Several travellers were satisfied with their accommodations at the hotel. They described their rooms as clean, quiet and well maintained, with comfortable beds and pillows. A few guests criticized their lodgings, however (see below).
The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few common complaints about the rooms, the breakfast and the price.

Although several lodgers were satisfied with their clean and well-maintained rooms, a few guests criticized their lodgings. They reported worn furniture and fixtures, old TVs, small-sized rooms, musty odours and inefficient air conditioning.

The hotel's free breakfast was a disappointment for a few reviewers. They described it as limited, mediocre and poor, with a small eating area and items not being replenished.

A few patrons complained about the hotel's rates. They found them to be overpriced and expensive, given the hotel's proximity to downtown Toronto.
