This hotel made me feel welcome

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: Poor breakfast, i had a lot of trouble getting on to the internet
The service was excellent. The people were very nice and very helpful with telling me how to get to the bus and giving me maps of the city and so on. The room was pretty clean, but I feel that the bathroom could have been a little cleaner.

Good value for money

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Stayed 2 nights and have nothing bad to say about this hotel. The room was large (2 queens) and clean. The bathroom likewise, although the layout was a little cramped. The toilet is placed so that you can have the bathroom door open or shut - but if you want to move from one state to the other you cannot do it whilst sitting on the 'throne'. No vanity in the bathroom either - just a smallish shelf over the toilet, but those are both minor issues. One note if you are travelling alone and security conscious - ground floor rooms on the "even numbered" side look out onto an open concrete area that would allow someone to gain access to the room through the louvered windows above the bigger window. I made sure the upper windows that open were firmly shut and locked, which meant that I had to rely on the air conditioner for air circulation at night. Parking is at the side of the hotel (lot is a shared one so you can only park in designated areas) or around the back. Not much lighting in the back and the parking lot has apartment buildings on 2 sides and a fair amount of foot and bicycle traffic through it at night. Breakfast was toast, cereal, coffee, tea, juice and fruit -- not fancy but there is a restaurant across the street (and a used bookstore and a Giant Tiger) and there are plenty of placed within walking distance.

Great Location

Pros: Free Parking.
Cons: The tiles could be cleaner in the shower and the grout in the bathroom redone.
The hotel is a short drive from downtown, or from the outskirts of town.

Convenient, clean, good continental breakfast

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
We were satisfied with our stay. We were looking for clean and cheap and we got it. The breakfast was surprisingly good (fresh fruit, cheerios, toast, coffee, sweet buns). The only criticism was that the heating system was dry and noisy - but it was similar to that found in many hotels. I would recommend this hotel for convenience and value.

Pretty good

The room was nice and clean, a little on the small side. The bathroom was bright and looked newly renovated. The beds were comfortable which is alot coming from me who sleeps on memory foam every night. Front desk staff was helpful and friendly. My only complaint was the continental breakfast which consisted of a few loafs of bread, juice,cereal and milk. Very good location close to downtown and walking distance from shops and restaurants. I would stay there again, nice hotel for the price :)
