A two night business trip with efficiency, courtesy and a personal touch. This clean and comfortable hotel might show as two stars but the staff are five star all the way. I appreciated the location next to the GO Station and took the advise of the night manager to take the train into the City. This was a comfortable 5... More

Stayed for four nights in November and overall it was what we expected for the price. The lady who checked us in was no help at all with a problem we had with the rate, (she just kept shrugging her shoulders) but this was sorted out very efficiently by another member of staff a couple of days later. Breakfast was... More

Although our beds were quite comfortable, the bathrooms were outdated and the hotel had a damp and mouldy smell. For the price they charge you would expect the hotel to be a bit more updated and definitely smell clean. The elevators are also painfully slow so I would recommend staying on the first floor. The Residence Inn Marriott is a... More

Stayed here for a kids hockey tournament. Was clean and breakfast was good. Not a bad place. Was just a far drive to cobourgh. Security was very good considering kids were running around like animals.

There was no one at the front desk to greet us. After awhile, someone came out, put up a sign saying they would be back and left. There was no 24hour decaf coffee in the lobby.
