I had to do a little business around Decarie this week and decided to spend a night or 2 on Decarie as the traffic to go back to the south shore is horrendous. Its an old building but they are renovating the rooms - my room was nice and the bathroom was just brand new. The pool is in the basement which has no windows but the fitness room was at par for us. They gave us wonderful free breakfast and that made up for it. There is so much stuff to do nearby after our business we decided to go shopping and check out a movie too. For the price u cant beat this hotel - it fit our needs.
The Good - The room "appeared" clean. - The beds were comfortable. - Friendly and helpful staff. The Bad - Found some previous resident's dirty underwear in our room as we were packing up to leave (maybe the room wasn't as clean as it appeared??) - There was literally a pile of human waste in the toilet in the men's room in the fitness facility by the pool, and the stall floor was covered in urine. - The floor of the pool area was covered in the crumbled remains of the ceiling.
Once we finally found the hotel (Decarie is a challenge to navigate for out-of-towners) we were warmly welcomed by the front desk staff. However, one big downside - with all the recent snow, the parking lot was not completely clear and parking spaces were at a premium. We ended up parking in a snowdrift and other guests had to find street parking.... not ideal. Complimentary breakfast was generous and was even strictly kosher, which was a benefit for some, especially vegetarians.
The hotel is easy to find, near the highway. Easy access and easy parking. Lounge is clean, and modern. Service was acceptable (no problems). Hotel room was clean and functional. However, hotel is in need of some repair and upkeep (torn wallpaper in some areas, etc.). But clean. If you are looking a clean bed and a clean shower near the access routes, this is a good choice.
Hotel is in a easy access location. This property is in need of repair and deep cleaning. But note it is not rated high. Water damage on walls in lobby and floor not clean upon initial presentation. Bed was comfortable. Room faced highway no discernible noise. Carpet in room was poorly installed and should not have passed inspection. Cleanliness is poor. Note not travelling with my wife, thank goodness. Cleaning staff needs to take a day every 6 months and be provided time to deep clean rooms to keep them respectable. Management needs to respect that it takes a little bit of effort to retain a customer vs neglect and not have a return customer. Dave Tresidder.
The service was excellent. Front desk clerks were very helpful and made a great effort answering any questions I had with a smile. I was in room 205, the room made me feel comfortable, it was clean, and well-organized. With the curtains closed, the room was a little dark, a couple more light fixtures would be a +. The food in the restaurant was great and the servings were huge. It was the first time I had to eat kosher and it was a great experience. Restaurant staff were very friendly. Thanks I really enjoyed my stay.
I was quite satisfied with my small one queen room. It was modern and clean. The TV choice is somewhat limited. Tripadvisor says parking is free, but I was charged $6, and the sign outside the lot is even less consistent, warning anyone who isn't a customer of the restaurant that parking is $20. So, which is it? The neighborhood is not touristy. It is residential and institutional, and close to the kosher quarter and the CJA etc. Good value for those who benefit from the location, close to the 15 and the 40 highways.
This hotel is in a great location for me - it's not downtown, but close to where I do business and close to public transit. It's not modern and sleek but a bit dated, however it's quiet (I've never heard people noises and have stayed twice), clean and cost effective. Parking is free, there is a pool and gym (though I've never used either) and free breakfast. There is a restaurant however it's not open Friday or Saturday and you need to enjoy a walk to get to other eateries. If your room faces the road you'll hear the noise of the highway - "white noise" not cars honking.
Seems to be fine in the lobby but for the rest it's old and dirty. Couch in the bedroom was dirty ( big grease stings) and sagging : heater very noisy - bathroom ( ventilation cover hanging / paints flaking / bath taps not fixed) Dinning room dirty like the carpet in the corridors. Positive point: people at the reception are very helpful and pleasant Out off price ( more than 100 CAD) and ranking ( 3 stars ?????)
We stayed 3 nights. Pro is decent sized room with 2 comfortable double beds, free WiFi plus "Jewish" breakfast. Con is dated furnishings, disinfectant smell, & parking extra at $6/day. Staff is friendly. Location is off busy highway & due to one-way streets need some driving around the block to access parking.
