Coffee is not included in the room rate however guests may request a coffee maker (excluding coffee) for their units for a $10 deposit. Guests are also required to pay a $200 room deposit.

Local calls are charged at a rate of $0.20 per minute and the parking fee is $5.00 per day. Check in time is 2pm or earlier if a room is available and check out is 12pm.

At the time of writing this editorial The Grange Hotel was contacted directly by the author to confirm the room deposit, coffee maker deposit, and surcharges for local calls and parking.

The Good

The proximity to tourist attractions, shopping and entertainment areas was noted favourably by many guests.

Several reviewers of the Grange Hotel said their rooms were adequate, clean and what they expected in a budget accommodation. Many enjoyed having a kitchenette in their units as it gave them the option to cook their own meals and store their own beverages.

A number of guests remarked that the $5/per day parking fee was reasonably priced for downtown Toronto. 
Guest reviews regarding staff were generally positive and most described them as “friendly”, “helpful” and “knowledgeable”.

The Bad
Guest complaints of this hotel typically spoke of the room size, the cleanliness and the weak WiFi signal. Several guest reviewers felt their rooms were too small and described them as “dorm-like”.

Some said the kitchenettes as well as their rooms needed to be cleaned and a few guests complained about the smell of cigarette smoke within the hotel. A number of guests were frustrated by the weak WiFi signal.

There were a few peripheral complaints that are worth mentioning such as location and room deposit. A few guests felt that the location was unsafe and were uncomfortable staying in this part of the city. Other guests said they were not told about the $200 room deposit prior to booking.

"The Grange"
"The Grange is a cheap hotel in a down town area of Toronto. For the price the rooms are good and well equipped. Fridge, stove top, Microwave and free internet access. Plenty of hot water and a good shower. I will use again when working in that part of town."

"Hotel's atmosphere is very groomy and not very clean too. Rooms are very congested and untensils provided are not clean at all. Room heater does not work. Even taxi drivers were not aware of the location and hotel - difficult to locate."

"This is a third rate hotel in a not very salubious part of town. It wasn't what I was expecting. In fact I haven't stayed at as poor quality a place in 20 years!"

"We had a wonderful stay at the Grange Hotel- we were under alot of pressure and having the people at the Grange looking after us was such a big help. This hotel is near our favourite restaurants in Toronto so that was great and near some of our favourite shopping as well as being near the Art gallery - this made it a wonderful time for us and I am looking forward to staying there when I come back to Toronto."

David from Toronto, ON CA rated Grange Hotel Toronto 8 out of 10 on October 25, 2004 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"A great low budget accommodation. I didn't feel out of place with backpacks and grocery bags. The kitchenette included a mini refrigerator, two burners, and sink. A frying pan and spatula, small cooking pot, kettle, salad bowl, plates, bowls, cups and cutlery for two were also included. I saved the cost of eating out and relaxed in my quiet room. A laundry room is available on each floor. It's the perfect non-frills home-away-from-home for the independent traveller. Modest. Clean. Simple. Inexpensive."
