Phone died.. so couldn't check reviews. It was clean. However, the walls are super super thin. I didn't sleep much because of a busy saturday night. No plates for toast or waffles. Was told by the front Counter staff to use a bowl. I wouldn't stay here again.

The room was cheap in price, but you get what you pay for; burns in the bed- spread, towel rack's coming off the wall's, filthy floor ( better have slippers along), poor house keeping, I had to make my own bed, its not that they didn't have enough time, I was gone most of the day. I came face to...

It is a budget hotel in a motel layout. That should set your expectations. It was reasonably priced for the category of hotel this is. My expectations were not high, that said I was impressed. The rooms had up to date furniture. The breakfast was reasonable. Lots of parking. I was here for three nights, the last night there was...

Let me just say that I picked this for 2 reasons: 1) Wyndham hotel & 2) price. The reason I say price is because it wasn't the cheapest but it was reasonably priced for the location to the airport and I was arriving late for a very early departure. My stay at this facility lasted all of about 6 1/2...

We stayed here just for one night in October and it was exactly what we were looking for. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean, though there were no towels (got some after talking to front desk clerk). This hotel has half smoking, half non-smoking rooms. So really, it is a smokers paradise. If you are...

We've got a excellent stay in this hotel.I didn't expect this stay will be like it's price. With the price we paid here, I don't think we can have this kind of accommodation anywhere else. Will stay again in the future. Strongly recommend it.

I travel for work 80% of my week. It's refreshing to walk into a hotel, have them greet you by name, and treat you like a number one customer, even though you may not be. I am always greeted with a smile, and given the best rate possible even during peak times. Beds are super comfy and I don't find...

Thanks for the really kind review and true statement Sean H! The hospitality industry is about making people feel great, providing value, and being a great ambassador for the city we live in. We are a small property that is often overlooked but we love taking care of the people we know. I will share this with the rest of...

A noisy place that seems to draw sketchy characters, partiers and work crews. We paid close to $100 for the night, which is on the high end for a "budget" motel. It's close to the railway, the highway and sound seems to come through from every direction. Bad value for the money.

Hi David R, Sorry to hear our property wasn't what you were looking for. I would disagree with you on a few of these comments. People like our location as we are close to the airport, close to downtown, and have lots of Restaurants(Ricki's All day grill and pub, Sardinia's, McDonald's, Tim Horton's) close by. Our prices when compared to...

This is a very loud hotel. The freeway is humming until after midnight, not good. Walls are very thin, we were kept up by guests talking quietly and laughing in neighbouring rooms and people wandering, smoking, on cell phones outside our door. Stayed here to fly out early and hoped for 4 hours sleep, might have got 1. There has...
