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

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.

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.

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.

Not very good

Got this room at an ok price considering if was TIFF time...but room smelled like stinky feet, wasn't ready for check in at 3PM! Also, no parking, had to park my car in an open public lot down the road and go down at 7am to put more money in the machine. They have an underground lot under an apt building a block away but only have like 10 spots and people park there who arent even staying at the hotel. Contintental breakfast was only open 7am to 10am...thought that was kind of short. The night desk guy couldn't understand or speak English...just shrugged his shoulders at us when we asked for something. Also asked the hotel to call us a cab and we waited outside for 15 mins then went in to ask if it was on the way and the girl said she forgot to call them back. so ended up waiting 30 mins for a cab. Shady location, lots of homeless people. I don't suggest the hotel, we had to stay there or else we would have been paying 250 or 300 bucks for a nice hotel.
