    Close to the highway.

    The air conditioner was very weak - it was very hot in the room. Lack of room service was disappointing. The light in our washroom had a bad connection so it always flickered.

  • Older travelers

    Not a bad location and the restaurant's staff and food were great.

    The brim of the pool was covered in black scum. It was like a communal bath. The exercise room was cramped and the equipment is old.The guestrooms appeared neat and clean but there was a very stale odour in the rooms. The bathroom was covered in mould. The front desk people were not the friendliest i've come across.

  • Group of friends

    Great service, nice staff. Location, nearly highway and shopping mall.

    The mattress too soft.

  • Single

    Close to shopping and easy to get around.

    This hotel needs a complete update/ overhaul on the inside. The Room smelled musty (like dirty socks) and the floors were not steam cleaned or vaccumed as I found large chunks of items on the floor around the bed. The mattress on one bed pretty much collapsed (absolutely no support)on itself and is not suitable for anyone with back issues, Not impressed that I was told that my reservation was for only one night and that the hotel was booked solid, but that they managed to "squeeze" me in when in fact I was booked and quoted for 2 nigths a wekk in advance.

    Very nice place to stay at especially if you have a car, family or are driving. It is a distance from town center but there is a bus stop close by which also makes transport to and fro the airport easy.

    We were here for a family wedding so the hotel was convenient.

    location, big rooms, parking lot close to door

  • Older travelers

    The fat you can have a dining room and a bar close so If you don't feel like going out you don't have to.

    We like a whirlpool and the last three times we went there wasn't any. We think there should be a shuttle for special times. EG Winterlude even of it is only three times a day

    Great buffet, very friendly customer service reps at front desk

    The staff were excellent and helpful. Parking free. Room was fine.

    The pool area was freezing - the lifeguard was wearing a jacket and boots. The water was warm enough but the jacuzzi was broken. The pool and the jacuzzi were why I chose the hotel so that was very disappointing.

  • Older travelers

    this hotel is very bad i have ever see and it dosent worth the money we paied for it, it is one star hotel and we paied for 4 star and it is not worth it at all. i will never choose it again and the service was bad and the rooms are dirty and old . the heater system make us sick .

  • Older travelers

    Toilet was leaking all over the floor. Bed were old and uncomfortable. Mould in the shower. The person at the desk did not ask me how my stay was, as he probably new what the answer would be! The Hampton inn was full or I would have been there!I used to stay at the Chimo years ago on a regular basis and they always gave me the better rooms with the good beds. 125 dollars for this room was a joke. My wife walked into the bathroom and was greeted with a puddle of water. I bet if you check the room now the toilet will still be leaking!

    See above ! One horrible stay! Back is still sore from the sunken mattress!

  • Group of friends

    The 1st impression is one of luxery. The room is also nice. The technical aspects need some attention. The TV is outdated and not working well.

    For a 4 star hotel some services should be considderred. Free coffee in the lobby would make sure you feel welcome.

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    From what I remember you had indicated that this was a 4 star. Certainly it was not. There were used towels on the floor and the bathtub was not draining. We had to call House Keeping late at night to have it pumped out

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    We enjoyed being out of city downtown and yet a short trip to landsdowne park for weekend meetings.disapointed that the variety store was not open most of the time. lunch at clancy's was very good. highly enjoyed perkins on Saturday for brunch.

    Pool too small
