Editor's Analysis
Updated Oct 16, 2014
Overview
Located just off the Gardiner Expressway and about an 8-minute drive from Pearson International Airport, the Stay Inn Airport South Toronto is an economical choice for air or car travellers who require easy highway or airport access. Unfortunately, there is no airport shuttle service between the airport and hotel in either direction. Taxi fare from the hotel to the airport will cost between $30-40. Public transit, at $3.00 a passenger, may be a less expensive option for those without time pressure. 

This hotel has 65 air-conditioned guest rooms and suites, all of which offer free Wi-Fi, cable TV, a mini-fridge, a hair dryer, and an iron/ironing board. Standard rooms offer two queen beds, while business rooms offer one queen bed and a desk. Queen Jacuzzi rooms offer a jacuzzi and bathrobes for each guest, while king jacuzzi suites also offer a fireplace. Accessible rooms are also available, but should be requested in advance. Regardless of the room type, pets are not permitted.

Hotel facilities include a business centre, a meeting room, and free parking. A complimentary hot buffet breakfast is served to all guests daily, and free coffee is provided 24-hours a day. Other nearby dining options include Veroli Restaurant (roughly a 3-minute drive), and Queensway Rotisserie and Grill, which is located 4 minutes north of the hotel. 

The Mastercard Centre for Hockey Excellence is about 6 minutes away by car and Sherway Gardens Shopping Mall can be accessed in 5 minutes. Downtown Toronto is approximately a 20-minute drive away. (All  travel time estimates: Google Maps)

The Bad
While most of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple of common complaints among them which included the lack of elevator and the small breakfast room.

A couple of guests found the hotel's lack of elevator to be an inconvenience. The hotel is two storeys high, and it was recommended that future guests book a room on the main level if stairs could pose a problem.

A few reviewers found the breakfast area to be small and one guest said it was crowded, although one of these guests said the quality of the food and selection provided made up for the inconvenience.
