The Good
This hotel provided a pleasant environment and a comfortable room.

Rooms were often described as large and well cared for, with very comfortable beds. Several guests liked the wooden black-out blinds that helped to keep outdoor noise out of the rooms, as well as morning sunlight. Many said they could not hear any traffic noise, although the hotel was close to the highway. 

The location was very handy to the highway and Metro, for accessing downtown destinations and the airport. Many liked the location for having Walmart, Tim Hortons and plenty of restaurant choices in walking distance.

The staff played a big part in making guests feel welcome and they were invariably praised for being polite, helpful and accommodating.

Parking was free, secure and ample and guests were appreciative of having this included in the room rate, along with free Wi-Fi. Several guests thought the hotel provided good value.

Guests who commented on the outdoor pool found it well maintained and lots of fun.
The Bad
Negative feeback focused on a few points, although overall the hotel seemed to succeed in pleasing its guests.

Some parts of the rooms had been updated and some parts remained a little dated. Occasionally guests considered the hotel to be a little pricey for this reason. These guests pointed to dated bathrooms and air-conditioning units in the rooms, and an old, small and rickety elevator. As well, a few said their bathrooms were small.

Although the rooms were usually well cleaned, there was the odd complaint of dusty window ledges and other surfaces.

A few guests complained about difficulties with the Wi-Fi, but overall guests rated it as very good in surveys taken online, and some reviewers said it was fast.

When it came to the breakfast on site, opinions varied with some liking it and some disliking it. There were also a few guests who felt that for the price of the room, a free breakfast should have been included.
