Positive Reviews

Dining Delight

Guests enjoyed the hotel's breakfast buffet, and highly recommend the Lake Shore Cafe for dining as well.

Worthwhile Value

Guests really enjoyed that the hotel offered many freebies, especially free parking, which is hard to come by so close to the city centre. In addition, you can leave your car and take the complimentary downtown shuttle instead, so save even more money on parking.

Lovely Location on the Lake

Many guests described the hotel's location as scenic. It is close to many parks and right next to the Lake Shore Trail. You can take a relaxing walk from the hotel or just enjoy the outdoors. In addition, you will find a number of good restaurants and cafes within walking distance of the hotel.

Negative Reviews

Showing Age

This is an older property—and judging from recent reviews, the rooms show it. The hotel could use an update on furnishings, new carpets, additional electric outlets, and more stylish decor.

Weak Wi-Fi

The Wi-Fi doesn't reach all of the rooms. Apparently, the rooms closer to the front of the hotel have a much more stable signal than those in the back.

Traffic Noise

There is a very busy highway near the hotel, and some rooms are affected by it. If you're a light sleeper, make sure you ask for a quieter room.
