      The fridge, microwave, little kitchen net, free internet.

      It was so hot in the room when we first got in & the air condition wasn't working, so we had to open the window, in which the humidity was coming into the room & I'm on oxygen. I didn't like the bed, it was really uncomfortable, it was hard & lumpy, I had the room for 2 nights, the next first morning we ( the wife ) & I had a sore back. On the second night during the night my wife couldn't endure the pain, so she had to get up & tried to sleep in one of the chair. When we were calling front desk nobody was answering, usually rooms have little cot to put suitcases on. There was no decaf coffee so I had to go see front desk for decaf coffee & coffee mate.I Don't like to complain, but since u asked,there it is. Thank you. Gaetan

      The room is very clean and spacious.

      There was only one elevator working, and on Saturday there are quite a few people leaving at the same time, which meant a long wait to get to the lobby.

      uh....the hardwood flooring I guess

      Well let's see..... First off it's advertised on the website as a hotel when it's really a seniors living area filled with disease and rude old people. Called room service and asked for three extra bath towels an extra shampoo and a condition and some Asian lady was sent to my room and didn't bring any of it but a small bottle of shampoo. Upon leaving the lobby to go get food old men were yelling at my girlfriend. The dishes and cutlery were gross. The coffee maker had no filters and the filter holder had mold in it. Warning signs of sickness in the building. In general really pissed off and wouldn't stay here ever again or recommend to anyone.

      We were not aware that this was a Senior's residence as well. We had been at this hotel before and were not told about the change. What upset us the most was the warning about the viral infection (Gastro) that was going around. If one of us had a compromised immune system this would have been a major fear. We found ourselves avoiding touching anything in the public areas (elevator buttons, front counter, door handles) and washing our hands when we got into our room, and using hand sanitizer when we left the hotel.

      Did not know that it is becoming a Seniors residence and is being converted now

      Still under contruction but nice wooden floor in the room- very spacy and good for seniors or disabled - some with wide doors - sits in the shower - modern style even if some rooms seems to be puzzeled together with old and new furnitures. little kitchenette with coffee facilities - restaurant only for bf and lunch - hotel should be fully booked but no one to see around the bar or bf/lunch area.

      power outage for 2-3 hours- we got flashlights at the frontdesk when coming home- very close to the highway 417 but not loud at all,

      It's being turned into a senior's residence. My room was like I was living in one, with all the features that go with it. Walls were also really thin and I could hear everything that was going on in the hallway. Not what I was expecting when reading the reviews or the hotel features. Would not stay there again.

      I was a bit upset as I was never been informed it was converted to a senior living, and didn't response as an hotel for tourists or business people. Nevertheless, I appreciate help from Anuj, he was helpful. The renovations works on the roads too create disburbances. This also contributed to shorten my visit in Canada.

      It was a clean hotel.

      The hotel is currently being converted into a senior residence. There is not outside sign that shows that it is an hotel. My room also add a very noizy refrigerator. Not much restaurants in the area.

      Location was good for us, close to Algonquin College. The room was clean and recently rennovated. Good for wheel chair access.

      It is being turned into a senior living centre. Two floors are currently operating as a seniors home and two being used as a hotel until the end of October when it all is converted to senior living.

      It was a very nice place to stay as it was a good location and price as we were in town for a funeral and it was just what we needed. It was very clean and I liked that there were no carpets.

      The only drawback was the fact that the building is in the process of changing to a senior's residence and we were taken by surprise. Because of this we didn't feel comfortable using the diningroom for a quick lunch or breakfast.

      I found everything to be excellent; front desk very frienfly and helpful, restaurant's staff very pollite and goof food. Room large and very clean.

      Nice decor, very clean and in working order. Good location by the expressway for easy access to the rest of the city.

      Although the booking allowed me to choose a room with a king-size bed, we were put in a room with two double beds. There was no bathtub - only a shower.

    • Family with children

      Nothing, after having to change rooms 4 times because of poor cleanliness and broken fixtures etc. We had rooms that stunk of urine, bad diinfectants mold etc. It is the worst hotel I have stayed at Canada! It is poor seniors complex that is trying to survive by renting hotel rooms. Do not stay there you will be disappointed!!!

      Very long list- not clean, facilities are bad, lights burt out, no maitenance, crappy bathrooms, I felt like we were staying in a third rate hospital.
