Toronto Garden Inn
Ranked #8 of 116 Toronto B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 December 2010

This is a good place for a short term stay, as it is very close to stopping points that take you to the main avenues in the centre of toronto.
The food is healthy with good quality options, such as fresh fruit, eggs, juice, cereals, milk, vegetables, etc. The amenities are clean and spacious.
This is a good option for those looking for some privacy and willing to spend a bit more than in a hostel and less than the cheapest hotels in the area.

when i first pulled up to the Toronto Garden Inn i was asking myself.....did i choose the right place ? ....the exterior is very ordinary to say the least.......but when you enter you start realize just how nice this place is.....Unal and Ergin are the most gracious of host......the front room offers you a comfortable setting with free local phone service , computer , television , dvd`s , and a supply bof reading material.....you begin to sense a nice home away from home feeling right away......the entire place is very neat and clean.....breakfast is included here and what a treat !........they offer a nice selection of fresh fruit , cereals , juices , breads , bagels , teas and fresh brewed coffee.....you want eggs ?......they got you covered.......sorry folks......you do have to make your own breakfast....ha ha.....all the rooms have tv , radio , and comfortable beds with fine linen.....in the summer you have a/c and the winter warm moist heat......no dry nose and throat here.....the showers have endless hot water......a 15 minute walk takes you to the Eaton shopping center and Dundas Square where all the action is......this place has the best rates around for all you get and it is Toronto`s best kept secret.....i`ve been coming here for months and you need not look any farther then The Toronto Inn.......

Toronto garden Inn is an absolutely great place. I stayed in this B&B one week in 2010. I visited a lot of countries for business and vacation, and I saw a lot of B&B too. I was referred to the Toronto Garden Inn, and I suggest to all my friends. Breakfast was very good with a huge selection of everything and there was enough variety for individual's taste. The room is so clean and nicely decorated. Bathroom and kitchen is so clean, and also have unique decoration. Complimentary snacks and drinks available all day. Free local calling, wifi internet and computer plus a printer. The host was really nice, had good advice for us on what to do in the city. The host have all the time beautiful smile and kind, and embracing personality. I would like to stay again.

If the web site had not built it up, or if it was $20 cheaper, I may not have been so disappointed. This is just a glorified dorm. The breakfast that was raved about is just a huge assortment of cheap cereal, bread and some fruit with jams and cream cheese. PLEASE check the bread, cereal and milk before eating, so much was moldy or had gone bad. Better yet, stay somewhere else and go to the St. Lawrence Market and have a really great breakfast!
Room smelled a bit a was always too hot. The only control was to block the heater and opened the window. The mattress was ancient and was more like a tub than a bed. As for romantic, not likely. But safe, I could hear everyone walking on the "nightingale floors" and would know if someone was sneaking up on me. Bathroom was clean each day, but like a dorm, it all depends on the last person. With eleven people and only 2 bathrooms, you can imagine it wasn't always easy. No smoking inside was great, but because the back door does not latch, the kitchen always smelled of smoke.
I have stayed at all levels, this rates Nice Youth Hostel. Leave it for the kids, they will think it is a step up and enjoy it. Stay somewhere else if you want privacy, a better deal, and just not to be let down.

It is a quiet hotel with great attention by his manager, a few steps from the 505 Dundas streetcar route (Sherbourne stop) and excellent self service breakfast.

Quirky Victorian character house in a charming tree lined road, very convenient for central Toronto's Eaton Centre only a 15 mins walk. Not the best of areas however, a bit downtrodden and a few dodgy characters but probably OK as long as you are accompanied. House is furnished with old furniture (not quite antiques) a bit of a mixture. Nice front parlour with telephone, TV and free internet. Mid sized kitchen with everything you need, good self service breakfasts with plenty of variety of rolls, bagels, fruits, cereals, yogurts, hot drinks etc. - only spoiled by the second bathroom opening up in the middle of it. Not very sanitary and somewhat embarrassing as breakfasts were punctuated by guys in their Y fronts walking in and out. Met some lovely people fromall over the world around the breakfast table, a real plus. Our bedroom (Magnolia) was on the first floor, not ensuite, again furnished with old furniture, bare floorboards, an old elaborate carved bed was beautiful but was dressed in unironed crumpled grotty bed sheets under an old bed cover. Pillows were thin and lumpy so am guessing they too had some age to them. Bathroom was spacious and clean at the end of the landing. Didnt get any sleep first night as a full on student party was happening at the house opposite, police called a couple of times but eventually went quiet at around 05.00 am. Met our host mid stay and at the end to pay, seemed like a very nice chap. Price was CAN$113 including tax per night, OK I guess, Toronto is on the whole expensive accommodation wise. In summary, not as nice as we expected - could be vastly improved by moving downstairs bathroom entrance out of the kitchen and just a few touches here and there, decent bed linen is an absolutely must. Would probably not stay again.
