“Nice place with great price”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

We come to this hotel every summer. I noticed there has been many upgrades to the lobby and rooms. The couple at the front desk and staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was very comfortable and clean. I would recommend this hotel. It is close to a lot of attractions and is a good value.

Room Tip: second floor seems the nicest

1.The elevator stunk like old food and B.O.
2. The floor in the bathroom and room entrance was sticky/ greasy
3. The room smelled like a meat packing plant/ dirty dish rag combo
4. The room was very warm and stuffy when we walked in. Turned the very old and dirty air conditioner on- it actually shook and banged when it went on and off
5. We did not know this when we booked the room, but there is a strip club right next door and since our room was at the front of the hotel, the patrons often loitered right under our window to smoke and socialize
6. For most of the night, the people across the hallway were yelling, slamming doors, leaving their door ajar so visitors could come and go, just being extremely rude guests.
7. I tried to call the front desk around 1 AM to complain about the noise only to find out that the room phone was completely dead. Upon further inspection, I noticed that the phone jack was ripped right out of the wall.
8. Had to use my cell phone to call the front desk (a long distance call for me). The clerk went to the room across the hall and asked them to close their door. Things were quiet for about 5 minutes, then it all started up again
9. My sister also had a room there that night- opposite end of the hotel- it smelled worse than mine did and the inside door lock did not work.
10.Couldn’t stomach breakfast there after the sleepless night, so upon checkout, I asked the clerk and manager/ owner for a discount due to having to use my cell phone. They seemed to not hear me and charged the full rate to my card. Out of principal I insisted on getting something at least for the cell phone use…they actually asked me how much the call cost- as if I had magically received a phone bill during the night. While the manager was doing his best to ignore me the clerk decided to tell me I should get a better cell phone plan…Begrudgingly and after quite some time and much discussion, they gave me $3 cash.

***This is one place I will never stay again, and I recommend to everyone to avoid this place…

We needed an affordable place to stay in London for a few days while we looked for a home to rent. During that time, the staff was extremely welcoming, helpful and accommodating and took care of our every need. We had a basic room and it was clean and comfortable. We would recommend this hotel ti family and friends and would not hesitate to come back. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable night's sleep with outstanding customer service at a fair price, this hotel is for you.

I felt free for one week stay here. Not so far from a bus stop. The people are friendly and make my bed tidy everyday. Actually, really don't think the soap should be changed everyday. In total, I like here.

Room Tip: The room I lived was really big. I needn't a telephone but the internet is good.

This is a very nice hotel. Our room was very comfortable. The staff was very efficient and helpful, they went out of there way to accomadate our needs. Highly recommended. The hotel is very close to the downtown area of the city, as well as Victoria Park the site of the Sunfest world music festival, a very popular event that takes place every year in London.

The hotel was clean, new and beautifully furnished. Staff were amazing on check in! The complementary internet worked without a hitch and the suite had all the required amenities. Free parking. The breakfast was very nicely presented and fully stocked. I felt that I am at home away from home. Would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the London ON area.
