Feel like a student again, but not really convenient when travel with children and you're in need of a good sleep after a long trip / airplane flight. Sooo dated, so basic, cheaper than anything around and nothing else to say.

If you just need a place to lay your head, this is the place. A very reasonable price for two bedrooms, a bathroom and a common area with fridge and microwave. location is close to Hwy 401 at Homer Watson Blvd. Complimentary continental breakfast.

The season is now over and the residences will be handed back to the students now. I would recommend this for an economy stay and especially if you’re a family or group. There are what look like teams or road crews staying there so be prepared for that. But each suite has two bedoorms, a TV for each, a kitchen... More

For the price, you can't go wrong. It's affordable and accommodating. Clean rooms, free toiletries and provided linens, private bedrooms, free breakfast, kind staff, Free wifi available in rooms, safe. Can't go wrong for the price you pay. We also had access to the work out room, movie room, and game room. Pretty cool!

Found this accommodation on hotel.com for $59 a night - 2 separate rooms with a double in each, small kitchen and bathroom/shower. It included a continental breakfast. Easy to find off the 401, clean, the front staff were friendly and fast check in. If you're look looking for a 1 night stop on your way through, check out this residence.... More

We stayed here for 6 nights with 3 kids. This is not a hotel, it's a student dormitory open for guests in the summer. I thought that considering what we paid, it was decent. Breakfast is basic, but good. The rooms are in pretty bad shape, but they are somewhat clean (we brought our own sheets, pillows and towels). There... More

The front desk service was good. The rooms are spacious but housekeeping not as good as in the past. Still worth the rate for a decent place to sleep. Would love to see the renovated rooms. Parking is good. Breakfast is fine and close to major highways and amenities.
