My husband and I were traveling through Canada with our kids (9 and 7) and just needed a place to rest as we passed through. We didn't want to spend a ton of money since we were just passing through Sudbury. I booked a room at the Fireside Imperial with Expedia. They booked for the wrong night -- the night before. Off to a lousy start. The evening we were coming into Sudbury, my husband called the Fireside Imperial to let them know we would be arriving very late (like, midnight). The woman (manager or owner's wife, I think?) said she had waited up until midnight the night before for us to arrive and we never came. I'll have to take that mistake up with Expedia (good grief!). I felt horrible that she waited up for us and we never showed. But she said not a problem, that they could accommodate us. We arrived around 11:30 p.m. at the Imperial Fireside, and woke up the couple who run the place. He said he was sending us to the Sudbury Inn, one of their other properties nearly next door. We were thankful that they were willing to take care of us, despite Expedia's mistake.
The room was okay. Nothing to write home about. It's a very old property, but our room seemed to be clean. We were tired and just needed 8 hours of rest. As my husband said, "It's everything you need -- a clean room with decent beds."
Breakfast the following morning was a little lacking. It was a bit of a struggle -- out of milk, out of juice, out of syrup. The kids shared a paper plate until the man behind the desk finally refilled them.
The neighborhood isn't spectacular. I hesitate to say "rough," but it's certainly blue collar.
We were thankful that the manager and his wife were willing to work with us despite the Expedia mistake. But if you're looking for a nicer neighborhood, this might not be the place for you.
