We stayed at this hotel on our way to Kitchener February 28th 2014. Despite the fact that the entrance is not very welcoming, check-in was easy. I had booked through Expedia and got a pretty good rate. They will run a pre-authorization for $50 on your credit card, presumably as a damage deposit. When I asked about it being released, the clerk said it would be released within two days of my check out but then "joked" that she may elect to use the $50 to shop on eBay, which I found to be quite odd. The entrance from the parking lot, especially at 11:00 pm, is quite sketchy, as are the corridors, with random ribbons tied to various doorknobs and room keys stashed under doorways. Hallways smell heavily of smoke, but as noted in a previous review, the rooms are fresh and show evidence of recent renovations. Our room had a mini fridge that hadn't been cleaned out from the previous guest, but other than that, it was pretty clean and the beds are firm, yet comfortable. Continental breakfast consists of toast, cereal, muffins, a waffle station, juice, coffee, tea, and a basket of apples. Interestingly, the breakfast area seemed to double as the gathering spot of a contingent of local senior citizens, who all seemed to know each other very well. Overall, about what one would expect from a $79 hotel room. Wouldn't go out of my way to stay at the Econo Lodge City Centre in the future.
