Great stay at Ramada Plaza

The staff were very welcoming and helpful. They ever called to see if the room was to my liking, which it was. The room itself was really nicely prepared and the bathroom appointments were clean and modern, very nice. I particularly like the location, because it's nearby to everything but away from the noise.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

Getting to the Yonge Street entertainment district would be a pleasant walk in the nice weather, but in the winter, it's better to take a taxi.

Meh

First time staying in a Ramada, wasn't that impressed. Room was adequate and comfortable, however the decor was dated, a la 1990's, little bit worn around the edges. The room carpet was worn and stained, I was afraid to go barefoot. The hallways were dark and old-looking. But, for the price, it was within walking distance to where I needed to be.

Pi-Toms Thai restaurant is a couple blocks south on Jarvis, just past Dundas. Nice little place.

Bachelorette crash pad

Went and stayed here for my Bachelorette, and they had rooms that fit 6 of us in beds comfortablly which was key to spiltting costs! Bathrooms are GORGEOUS! Looks like they were newly renovated. Service was great, and efficient. we needed more towels and ice, and were brought it within 15 minutes. Only thing I wasnt't he happiest about was the parking fee. It was unmentioned and 25 dollars per car, but aside from that, great time!

Nice for couple

The service was great. And also the staff were very friendly and accomodating. Breakfast is a bit expensive, but overall we are satisfied.

Friendly Staff, facilities not stellar

The staff at the front desk and the restaurant were very friendly and efficient. The room is average size (but crowded when the sofa bed is being used), very small bathroom. Clean room and bathroom. Mattresses were very uncomfortable in both beds. They were either old or worn out. Mattress in sofa bed was typical of a sofa bed--thin and uncomfortable. Parking is close by, and there were more than enough spots available, although there is an additional charge for parking (but free parking is hard to find in the downtown area). Internet is free, but is very slow. Pool is adequate, nothing fancy, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna were all good. I would recommend if you are able to get a good rate.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Stay closer to the main downtown area so that you can save on parking. Parking in the downtown lots ranged from $20-$40. Parking costs much less at attractions like the science center, ROM and Casa Loma (which are not within walking distance from the main downtown area).

motel surrounded by bums and beggars

Hotel is more like a motel. 3 star on a good day. Skip the food inside. Area not ideal since Jar vis seems to be a magnet for homeless people due to shelters on this street. Hotel itself not bad but for the price I would never stay again.

Close to to the Ballpark? Please!!!

I booked this hotel thinking I would be able to walk to Rogers baseball park according to the information. Not close enough to walk it was a short subway ride. the Hotel was clean but off the beaten path in back of Yonge a few blocks and you had to go through a neighborhood. It was a ok Hotel not luxurious but do able.

Great Central location

The hotel was very conveniently located for walking around Toronto, although the block it's on is slightly sketchy at night. Room was nice and clean and staff were helpful
