    Very good

    From outside it didn't look like much for the room was really nice. They also have a swimming pool. The staff was nice.

    I got there very late and nobody was there. There was a phone for emergencies, but it was broken...When we finally got it to work, the guy said all the rooms were taken, even though we had a reservation. He said there was one left so we figured it was ours, but he said he usually gets a reservation sheet, which he didn'T....Glad we could get a room, but it felt quite disorganized.... The room's floor was greasy. Still nice overall!

    The staff was helpful.

    Cleaness of the room could be improved. Daily cleaning of the bath and sinks is a must. The carpet was vaccumed before our arrival, but corners were cut. The mattress has seen better days. The internet connection is intermittent. The Continental breakfast was basic. But overall, fair value for our money.

    Superb

    We went for the museums and to go to Wolfe Island. It was a great place to stay, very clean, just renovated, came with breakfast as well for such a great price. It was a bit of a walk however to the water but if you are young it wont bother you...we drove around.

    It was still under construction while we were there. They offer continental breaskfast but I didnt feel like eating there as they had work being done where the break fast was being held. It seemed all very nice however besides that.

    Good

    The gentleman on afternoons was very knowledgeable to the surrounding area and very helpful. The bed was excellent, the linen could use updating. Looked very old. The renovations were nice but the rooms we stayed in weren't finished, we liked the the breakfast.

    The outside scared the living daylights out of me. If I hadn't been charged for this hotel I would have left based on the appearance alone. The gentleman showed us to our rooms and they looked ok at first glance. Upon settling in we noticed renovations were not complete in the rooms and the bedding looked to be 10 years old. they said they had a pool but it wasn`t passed by the city.

    Friendly staff, clean, nice looking room, free parking at hotel too.

    Room had been revenovated and there were some finihing off they needed to do to the room (ie filling a crack or painting a small unpainted part) though the work needed was small and really didnt affact our stay.

    We didn"t find anything worth while with this hotel. The staff said that the hotel had been updated and if so it was poorly done. Stains on the carpet and comforter on bed also had stains and appeared to be very old. Would not recommend you stay there not a nice part of town

    Very basic and uninspiring motel in the wrong part of town.

    Exceptional

    Hotel room was clean and quiet. Never heard anything all night. We've been to a lot of hotels over the last 10 years and never had a better sleep. Very happy with our stay!

    The only negative issue was the location of the hotel itself wasn't the greatest neighbourhood.

    Fabulous

    It was reasonably priced, and the rooms whee clean

    The lobby is in rough shape and the area for the continental breakfast need some work.

    Good

    It is a clear place.

    The bed is pretty high,the air condition is too noise to sleep. The breakfast is too late to service.

    Staff friendly, room big and clean, downtown but location remote and awary from community

    Not enough lights in it. Kind of dark

    Superb

    The beds were very comfy. Rooms were newly renovated. Two sinks was nice.

    The toilet paper was very thin, they need to upgrade. Also there was no blow dryer, this may have been an oversight, I didn't call the front desk as we needed to hit the road..
