Reviewed 6 May 2014

staff was very friendly. needed a place to sleep while attending a BJJ tournament. bed was comfortable and room was nice. only suggestion would be to have fridges and microwaves in rooms.

STAY AWAY
This hotel is like that hotel in your home town where the drug dealers and hookers live. The photos are very well taken and don't show the seedy underbelly of this hotel. There is a reason they have a no refund policy. The front desk staff were polite and nice and the only good thing about this hotel. There is a coin wash attached to the hotel as well as some sketchy church? The back is long term "suites" which are falling apart. The hotel is dirty and falling apart. They're were people smoking drugs in the stairwells and outside the hotel, there is a "security" guard that stays in the lobby at night for show. We got a free breakfast with the room but did not eat it for fear of what the kitchen probably looks like. I really could go on but if you haven't turned back yet then you won't mind this hotel. I would say $35 dollars a night would be a more accurate price for this hotel and 1 star

Reviewed 12 March 2014

old hotel needs a lot of help. wall paper peeling. air conditioner and heaters in room are falling apart, literaly. we were either cooking or freezing. lamp shades falling apart. carpets dirty and stained. NO PARKING ROOM. when we arrived there was no parking they suggested we park at the drug store across the street but that parking was full to, person at the front desk said.. "I don't know what to tell you" they have a reception hall that is continuoulsy rented out and takes up the parking of the whole hotel. they also share the parking with Avis rent a car and a Chinese restaurant.they advertise a DELUXE CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST, this breakfast consists of toast. muffins (sometimes) 2 cereals. hot waffle maker, coffee. there is a sign in plain view DO NOT TAKE FOOD TO YOUR ROOMS, everyone comes down with plates fills them with food and takes it to the room leaving nothing for the others. had to ask on numerous times to clean the tables, dirty. bit i will say the service was good. On our second night the fire alarm kept ringing at midnight. when I called they said not to worry there is a flood in the building somehwere. the walls are paper thin. I could hear everything for 2 rooms down. and the smell of pot was very strong at times. cost us 500$ for 7 days. I am sure there are better hotels in Brampton I do not suggest this one.

Room Tip: only tip I can give is avoid this hotel

I appreciate your review , again I ask please make us aware of your issues while you are here.
This way we can address them and make you more comfortable. unfortunately your arrival coincided with a memorial reception being held. In all fairness it was only a few hours ,but I do understand your frustration people were coming and going. All heating and air is individually controlled we do have a no smoking policy we try to enforce by taking deposits and doing room checks, upon check out. But this also annoys guests so either way we upset someone. We are
an express ,so we try to make up for this in our service, which you did recognize( thank you).
I apologize we did not meet our motto go happy go HOJO
