Windsor Hotels are poorly rated for the most part. I found a few good ones that won’t break the bank. It’s a good idea to compare rates for the hotels in Windsor as some days you will be able to get a better hotel for a lower room rate than a budget hotel.

Good value Windsor hotel near EC Row Expressway with renovated rooms and friendly service
Comfort Inn Windsor is my choice for a good value hotel in Windsor with high guest scores and a lower price point for the room. It’s located near to a Walmart and Devonshire Mall and Cramdon’s Tap and Eatery is a 3-minute walk from the hotel. Guests enjoyed the free breakfast, friendly customer service and their newly renovated rooms. Other freebies include parking and local calls.

Well-liked rooms, indoor pool and restaurant, with room service, porter and lounge
The Holiday Inn is my choice for a mid-range hotel, not basic, but not too expensive with lots of good amenities on site, a pool, a restaurant and lounge with room service, and a fitness centre. Guests can request microwaves and mini-fridges for extra convenience, and satisfy their pizza cravings next door at Pizza Hut.

Favoured by guests for cleanliness, free breakfast and friendly service
Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton Windsor is my pick for best service and amenities. This is a very well-liked hotel in the city with excellent ratings. It’s also a well-maintained property offering nice rooms with quality furnishings, an indoor pool, fitness centre and convenience store. Guests appreciated the free breakfast with a good selection of hot and cold items and the hotel’s proximity to the Windsor Crossing and restaurants. Some said the staff and their top notch service made all the difference here.

Clean rooms with a free breakfast, close to Ambassador Bridge into Detroit
The family-friendly Comfort Inn and Suites Ambassador Bridge is another good middle price range hotel in Windsor. It’s well situated near highway crossings in south Windsor about 10 minutes to downtown Windsor and only a 6-minute drive to the Ambassador Bridge. Several freebies help to keep the cost of travel down, including Wi-Fi, breakfast and parking.

Although there’s no elevator on site, there’s an indoor pool with small waterslide, hot tub and fitness centre to help keep busy and fit. There’s a restaurant next door adding convenience and guests can store leftovers in their in-room mini-fridge. Maybe best of all, Fido can come along for an additional $20 per day.

Choosing A Hotel in Windsor

Quick Summary of Most Popular Areas
Downtown Windsor: home to the Windsor Casino, there really isn't anywhere else in Windsor you'd want to stay
Windsor Casino: in the heart of the city's core and overlooks downtown Detroit
Windsor Airport: slightly removed from the downtown area, only stay in these hotels if you absolutely need to be close to the airport, otherwise downtown is a better option


What Windsor is all about
Being the southern most city and closest spot to the equator in Canada, Windsor is a tropical paradise full of white sandy beaches and Caribbean fun...NOT. Windsor is not a typical tourist destination unless you are passing through on your way to the US or you're on a business trip or visiting family. And that's okay, Windsor, not all cities have to be bustling tourist hot spots, so don't have a cow. If you are in Windsor and need to overnight I would recommend staying downtown. The majority of the conveniences associated with a city are found in the core. In addition you will be close to the Windsor Casino, which overlooks downtown Detroit across the water (Detroit across the water at night can be quite scenic...Detroit and scenic mentioned in the same sentence, I know eh...).

Where to stay besides downtown
If you want to save a bit of money and need to fly in and out of the city you have a few hotel options near Windsor Airport. These hotels are a bit out of the way from the downtown core (about a 20 minute drive), however they serve a purpose of convenience especially for travellers only looking to overnight.
