Recent guest reviews

The continental breakfast was the only thing that really disappointed me. Cereal toast croissants danish wheres the bagels the waffles or eggs. The staff was wonderful Needs an update Internet connection spotty

Musty smell in the room. Carpets were filthy; I doubt they have ever been washed.

This hotel is very dated. Parking lot doubles as parking for nearby business. Overgrown vegetation, delapidated.

old hotel that never got updated, im sure at one time it was a great place but bar closed restaurant closed outdoor pool filled in indoor pool cold . beds and room furnishings well worn sink rusted, also was not that cheap to stay at.

Inside the room was dirty, smelly, old and destroyed. Outside the building doors were untidy, trash everywhere, and most important were their broken doors and locks, three out of five doors. If something happens during your stay, you are in trouble. Besides that, their staff are nice and polite.

The hotel's location outside of Toronto was good since I didn't want to stay in the city but had easy access to the city. The condition though of the hotel was not good at all. It needs some serious TLC and updates. It looked like it hasn't been touched in decades. The room's air conditioner was way too loud! You could hear the room next door's air conditioner too. The pillows were like pancakes way too flat for any kind of comfort. Getting another pillow didn't help either. The continental breakfast was day old stale pastries, cereal and bread & bagels. There was not really any fruit either. The pool area had no towels for us but they didn't want you to bring towel from your room either! Next time I visit Toronto I will shell out the extra money for a better hotel.

The price for this two star hotel is outrageous compared to the fact other 3 and higher star hotels were only 20-30 more in price. This place needs a lot of help, it needs to improve. The TV, and furniture are all out dated. I definitely won't stay here again. Only reason I chose this place was because they had smoking indoors.

An old motel that hasn't experienced any maintenance. Dirty carpets, old fixtures, mold around tub. Poor continental breakfast. Believed some of the posted reviews and booked a night. Not worth the money.

This Hotel is the worst Hotel i ever been in, nothing about it was Good, it started out bad from the start. I believe if they are rebuilding they should close down til funish, instead they keep putting people into these nasty and bad smelling rooms. If you choose to stay there asked for the funish rooms. There are also bugs in the bed and room. They even forgot to clean the room at some time. Some of the front desk staff are rude, even to my children. They need better customer service. The free breakfast is a joke, my family and i went down to breakfast 1 out of 5days, it did not even worth getting up to go to breakfast. It was just bread, juice and some pastries. I have been to better Hotels for less money.

Hotel needs a lot of renovating - they are in the process right now - but a long way to go yet. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Would consider staying there again BUT NOT UNTIL COMPLETELY FINISHED WITH THE RENOVATIONS.

We stayed here during a family trip to Wonderland and the Toronto Zoo.There was 10 of us in total.Was the perfect location.Easy to find after a full day at Wonderland.Staff were very friendly and checkin was made very easy. We did not spend much time at the Hotel but the time we spent there was enjoyable.

worst experience. Cannot sleep at all.

It was great all staff were verry friendly.

The room was below my expectations. I have stayed many times at the HoJo on Highway 7, about fifteen minutes from the HoJo on Metropolitain. It is much cleaner on Highway 7. I stayed only one night, and did not use the amenities such as pool and dining room. The room was stuffy. Also the bed was too soft.
