Nice hotel

The hotel building looks awful, but inside is really nice. I used to live at the first floor double nonsmoking room with 2 queen beds. The room was nice and big. Guests say the room at 2nd or 3rd floor not as nice. Please book room at the 1st floor. They are nice.

Good and inexpensive

Relatively inexpensive though the room is too small. Worked for me as I traveled alone.

Good value hotel with good location

Our stay at this hotel was very pleasant. The rooms are a little bit small but it was very clean, the breakfast was various and good and the location is really good (close to Trams which you can take into Toronto). The parking is not for free which was a little bit a disadvantage but it was not bad. Altogether the stay at this hotel was really nice and priceworthy.

convenient, economic, western boundary of city-centre

Although the room was small and backed onto the TTC streetcar yard, it was comfortable and clean The convenience of this location at the western city boundary -- Roncasvalles /Queen W. is ideal for city-goers wanting an economic place to lay your head for the evening

Great price!

After reading reviews on this hotel, I was expecting a bad experience and dirty rooms. The rooms were quite clean, and very spacious, including a couch with a pull out bed. The breakfast wasn't very good, but luckily there was a McDonald's next door. I would stay here again.

Nice Affodable place

The Days Inn - Toronto West Lakeshore Was a nice place and fairly inexpensive place. The rooms were cramped esp if you have lots of Luggage but I needed a room to relax in so I didn't complain. The free breakfast was good cooked to order.If i am in Toronto again, I will stay here again.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you need to park your car, you will to park 2-3 blocks away and pay each day. If you cannot walk up or down steps, This hotel may not be you as there is no elevator. There is a street car that will take you Downtown or the subway station.

No Frills and Clean

Stayed there while looking for an apt. No frills and no drama. If you need a cheap, clean place to stay, this is it.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you are going to park in the garage, there's an alley cut through instead of going all the way up to Harvard Ave.

Decent

Stayed on first floor with king bed. Was fairly quiet, clean, and comfortable. Nothing fancy. No refrig or micro in room, minimal contin breakfast. Nice location across from lakefront park, convenience stores, trolly stop. Easy access to downtown. Parking lot is a little walk to get to. Would return too again.

Relax in Toronto

The rooms are a little small for sure but it's very legitimate in comparison to a hostel's rooms because you have your own bathroom. The TV has cable, the WiFi connexion is just incredible (so fast and reliable!) and the rooms were clean. The only thing is that they really weren't friendly when we checked out; they asked us to pay an extra 20$ because we left 10 mins too late. I couldn't tell if this is regular in hotels though, but I've never seen that in hostels of motels.

There's a fridge and a microwave on the first floor, so you can bring along a little lunch.
