My husband was supposed to have surgery at McMaster hospital. They recommended the Visitors Inn as a place to stay while he was in recovery for a couple of days. We checked in the night before, since his surgery was scheduled early in the morning. I must say, this place was immaculate. They upgraded us to a room with two beds and a little kitchenette, since their restaurant was closed. It had everything we needed. Unfortunately his surgery got cancelled due to covid19. My husband and I decided to stay one more night, since the beds were so comfortable, and the room rate was very reasonable. The only negative thing I have to say is about the hallway odor. We both smoked in our younger days, and this "scent" brought back memories. Other than that, this was a great place to stay. Once they reschedule his surgery, we will definitely be back.

this is my first review. I agree with hotelguest12345. my company has been coming here for a number of years. we also prefer the rooms on the first floor. the smell is really bad especially in the evening. some of us have transferred to another hotel. I like it here. the smell doesn't bother me that much but it does to my coworkers. lately it has become more noticeable. hope they clean up the trash

We stayed at the Visitors Inn for a Saturday night concert in the city and the prices were ridiculous! $170+t&f’s just for one night (queen bed) as if I were downtown Toronto. It’s just your average hotel out of the GTA so can’t justify that price gauging considering it should be 80-100 max...

My husband and I always stay at the Visitor's Inn. We love the rooms on the first floor with little kitchenettes. The last two times that we've been there, the first floor really smelled of weed. We didn't say anything to the front desk since we figured it was a one-time occurrence. But then it happened again. I can only assume that they have a long term guest residing on the first floor that smokes it. We will try this hotel one more time before we switch. Besides that, everything and everyone there are great.

Thank you for staying with us, and providing your feedback. We are sorry if the hallway smelled of weed when you stayed here. We do not allow any type of smoking in our hotel, and we try our best to get customers to follow the rules. Any guest who smokes in their room will be charged a steep fine, and asked to leave. I hope that you will return, and have a pleasant stay.

What a wonderful place to stay. A true home away from home. Clean, friendly staff and the bed was like sleeping in a cloud. we will be returning in a few months to visit family and to return here to stay. Best sleep of our life.
