Run, not walk away from this dump. Went into the room and the first thing I saw was a white board that someone wrote all kinds of satanic and gang warnings. Obviously housekeeping is not doing their job. There was a mini fridge which was covered in mold and was stained on the top. Burn marks on the wall and it looked like someone threw something on the wall and it dripped down, dried blood on the back of the door and dents on the door as well. It looked like two prostitutes were walking out of one room and attempting to round up business. Saw a drug deal going down as well. Spent 5 minutes in the room and went to manager to get my money back. This place is the most disgusting place I have ever seen.
The pros: seriously cheap for a perfectly okay room. It was a little scruffy but had pretty much everything necessary and excellent wifi and tv. So far no bedbugs. Location a bit down at heel but within proximity of a splendid beer house called the bent elbow. Kind staff and free donuts as well. The cons: it does appear to be a hangout for sketchy people, sex work and drugs. That said, I never felt actively unsafe and the people were friendly. But one or two rooms were clearly residences complete with large menacing dogs. The worst thing was the shower temperature which went from freezing to scalding randomly. For Me that was much worse than the drugs. Not sure I would stay there again from choice but it wasn't all bad at all!
I was dubious staying here after reading so many negative reviews. Unfortunately, most of the negative reviews are accurate. The bed bugs though a minimal amount had some effect on me. It was impossible to work on my Computer while charging as there were no sockets available. The shower was not very clean. On the positive side, good wifi and a nice selection of cable channels.
Stayed overnight for a concert. Very reasonable price, clean beds but nothing fancy. Needs some major upgrading but was good enough for a place to safely lay your head down for a night's rest. Unit has a small fridge and microwave although the microwave needs a good cleaning. Coffeemaker in room but no coffee and no Kleenex. Decent value for the price you pay.
Went to Kitchener to visit some friends for Christmas so I stayed at the Knights Inn. When I checked in they were very friendly and accommodating. When I got to my room it was clean and smelled fresh. It looked like they had recently updated the bathrooms. My room was comfortable with a queen size bed but also had a sofa so there was someplace to relax other than sitting on the bed. Conveniently located to good restaurants. Good value for the price.
No real privacy. All other patrons seem to be living in this motel. Garbage bins left outside every door. Appears to be a hang out place for the less fortunate. Not a place I would recommend for families.
Good price for a nights stay. Room smelt nice upon arrival, & sheets smelt clean. Room is sketchy, shower rod fell down, but does provide a fridge & microwave. Not sure where you were expected to receive a free breakfast as advertised. Front desk / office is dirty, & staff is not very friendly or welcoming; check in & check out as fast as possible. Cannot review pool as our stay was in December, but looked nice! One piece of important advice, choose having a bath over a shower. Besides the curtain rod mishap, the water temperature is constantly going up & down, which I assume is based on what the other units are using water for, ie flushing toilets, having showers, etc.
I work in Kitchener a few times a year, and they often reserve rooms for me at the Knights Inn. If you check my previous reviews you will see that i describe the knights inn in kitchener as not glamorous but good on a budget. And indeed some of the rooms have been renovated to some degree. But on this visit the combination of hookers with track marks on their necks hanging out outside their rooms, and other hotel residents walking down the walway, trying each doorknob to see if any had been left open did not instill a comfortable stay. The room itself was horrible, with a hole punched through the sliding bathroom door, the bathroom ceiling vent fan hanging down, the air co ditioner smashed, two dim ceiling lights, no reading lights, and a filthy dorm sized refrigerator with all the shelves smashed out. If you have to stay at this hotel ask for one of the rooms near the front desk, they are newer. Avoid the "middle wing" at all costs.
Went to see a play in Stratford on Thursday, decided to stay in Kitchener on Friday to avoid the heavy traffic going north. Decided to find a cheap hotel to stay and visit old haunts like St. Jacobs and Kitchener sights. Found this room for $65 on Weber street and decided to give it a go since we won't be in the room much. Room is ok, but you get what you pay for. We had to laugh because we are used to 5 star places, but at the hotel in Stratford where I paid 3 times as much , the toilet would not flush and had to pay parking. Here the parking is free and there is a nice pool though I did not go for a swim. The staff was friendly and I requested a couple of extra pillows and he gave us brand new ones. The ice machine is in the office also. Room was comfortable as was the bed. No carpets in the room. The bathroom fan was very loud but ok. Shower was good and the shampoo was very good. No flat screen tv in this room , but we enjoyed a late movie before bed. Overall, pretty quiet overnight. There seems to be permanent residents in some areas of the hotel, but they were quiet and sitting on the porch during the evening. There is a Tim Hortons opened across the street . We drove to a Williams Pub about 5 minutes away. Hotel is very close to highway 8 and the 401. Overall decent stay.
It is really a disgusting place. The smell in the room is bad and the place is really bad to get rest and sleep. If you go to the Whyndham website they show a really nice picture but in person is really different and the place is expensive for what they deliver
