We booked a night at Royal Oak for a concert. Reception was fine . Called twice to the clarify the parking. The room was small but clean and comfortable. Are these the best hotel rooms? No but they certainly are worth the money.

As a 21 years old girl traveling alone, I was not looking for something luxurious. I just wanted something clean. I stayed 3 nights and every day I found black hairs in the sheets (I’m blonde). The first morning, I had the unpleasant surprise to see mold all over the shower curtain. I said nothing, thinking « it’s no big deal » until I discovered there was actually a mouse (or several who knows???) in my bedroom. The receptionist didn’t seemed surprise and only proposed me an another room. So he gave me an upgraded room but still, there were hairs everywhere in both beds.

Although listed as having parking, it is incredibly limited (maybe 4 spaces) and they're not reservable. The room was ok. For the price and proximity to the centre its hard to beat. Breakfast was pretty poor.

The first thing you should be aware of is the area where this hotel is, it’s very sketchy with lots of people hanging around the streets, I would not want to walk around there by myself. The actual hotel inside was quite nice, everything seemed quite modern and we had no problems with our room. The complimentary breakfast was excellent, there’s a choice of cereal, toast, chocolate muffins, bananas and cook your own waffles. The only thing is they only have plastic cutlery and styrofoam plates and cups for breakfast, the amount of plastic the hotel will be going through a day is so bad for the environment, I’m not sure why they can’t set out reusable utensils for breakfast.

First and foremost thing about this hotel is the front desk staff - very helpful and cooperative. Fortunately i stayed for eight days and this opinion is based out of that experience. The hotel rooms are good though small in size, my recommendation would be to go for 2nd or 3rd level and road facing. Other amenities like breakfast choice is limited. Connectivity to downtown and other parts is very good. I am especially thankful to Mr. Sam, Viren and Pushpinder for making my stay homely and wonderful. Love to back again!

These people are liars and deceptive... I was not told that there was going to be a room deposit and it was taken off of my card before I even arrived at the hotel... They said it would be returned with immediately ... It's been 2 days now and my deposit is still not in my account ... the rooms were small and dirty ... With customer service practically non-existent ... I would strongly advise against staying here unless you want to get ripped off

I'm pretty laid back about where I stay, but I didn't like this place, which has gone beyond historical inn and into needing some serious attention. They have had some untrained labour upgrade the flooring but that didn't help overall. There were two main problems, firstly it was not clean, secondly it was in a very sketchy neighbourhood. The first night our bedding was hair-covered so we had to get new sheets when we arrived past midnight after travelling most of the day. We put them on ourselves, but even though they were fresh from the laundry they still had all sorts of long, black hair on them. Just not as much. The ledges were dirty, the mattress cover and sheets had all sorts of stains. The towels were also stained and full of holes. The furniture was stained with cup or maybe candle marks, and two of the three lampshades were melted and twisted. There were hooks but no drawers or cupboards. The bathroom door was frosted glass, in front of the toilet, so no privacy at all. The heat/cooling system worked fine by push button, but not with the remote. The TV and wifi worked well enough. There was no coffee maker, which would have been ok, if there actually was 24 hour coffee/tea in the lobby. But there wasn't. The breakfast was good for that price range. They even had bananas and waffles, which is always awesome. The front doors were mostly monitored, but not locked. The doors between floors had non-functional card readers so security was not what it looked like it was. We were a couple of blocks east of Dundas and Sherbourne, which according to police is the worst intersection in Toronto. That being said, besides noise from the street and garbage from the homeless shelters and injection sites, we had exactly zero problems with people and it did look like it would be worth eating at some of the little cheap eateries from every part of the world along that stretch. I'm afraid to say that this place and neighbourhood have seen their best days and that one should be cautious about this property.

Our stay in the Royal Oak Inn was good and definitely good value for money. It is impossible to find a better place within this price range. This means that you should manage your expectations - you get what you pay for. We stayed for two nights. Had a nice, quiet and clean room of comfortable size on the third floor, facing the back yard. Staff was polite, quite and helpful. Parking was available in front of the inn for extra $11/day. We did not have breakfast there. The inn is located in the part of the street that has a couple of shelters and a safe injection site near by so there is a very diverse group of people on the street minding their own business. We were back in the hotel around 9 pm and did not feel unsafe.
