Perfect Location

This hotel is located very close to Yorkville so the location is perfect. Yorkville location with cheap rates. The place isn't fancy but it's clean and the staff is helpful. Perfect for our need since we basically are out the the room all day and return to sleep and shower.

Downtown TOR

The hotel itself is a little dated, especially the amenities of the rooms. However the price was right and the location is great for the price. It's a block away from the ROM and an easy 5-10 minute drive from the entertainment district.

No frills in a great location

I've stayed here twice and I've never had a problem. The room is basic but clean. For Toronto, though, the price doesn't get any better. The location is perfect and much better than staying east of Yonge Street. I know the city very well and this location has the advantage of being close to the student vibe of the Annex where there are many good bars and restaurants. That's much preferable to being in the Financial District or east of Yonge, which aren't areas conducive to walking and exploring. The front desk staff were incredibly nice. A great value!

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Guu Sakebar is a vibrant Japanese Izakaya. The Madison and Pauper's are popular pubs with large rooftop patios. The Victory Café on Markham is a little more homey with a great beer selection, good food, and quiet patio.

Terrible experience

Dirty rooms, vagrants in the lobby, unfriendly desk staff..... I visit Toronto frequently, and this was my worst hotel experience in all the years I've been traveling there.

Unbeatable location for the price

Very convenient. Close to things we wanted to do. Bare-bones amenities but very reasonably priced for that neighborhood. Free wi-fi and coffee 24/7 were a plus.

Travel arrangements

I traveled to Toronto due to hospitalization of family member.[...] was aware of my travel purpose and they said that the Howard Johnson was the closest to the hospital for the price I paid. [...] would not tell me how much I was paying per night. I would have stayed at the Chelse Hotel because it was much cheaper due to family hospitalzation (they give a discount for that) and I could have walked to the hospitalization rather than pay expensive taxi transportation from the hotel to Toronto General Hospital. In addition, it is a much nicer hotel.

Just ok...

The room was old and outdated. It look like the 80's. Old tv and no ventilation fan in the bathroom. Not trying to be gross, but there was a white liquid substance dried on the head board. Sorry but it needed to be said. The hotel is in a decent location and it's in the city where you can walk everywhere.

The hotel location is very good. The hotel itself is a bit grim. There are marks on the walls. However, the staff are very nice and helpful.
