“Great Location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

I stayed at this hotel in October. The location is great, so near the subway station for access to trains to up town, downtown & airport. The hotel is basic but it is clean ,warm & staff are very friendly. Lovely breakfast each morning, plenty of cereal, juices, pastries, fruit & tea or coffee. The hotel is within easy walk to all attractions. Would stay again if I was in Toronto.

Room Tip: I had room at back overlooking the car park and it was nice and quiet.

My sisters and I frequently stay at this Howard Johnson when we visit our parents in Toronto. Yes, it is a basic hotel but it has two very important things going for it. First it is a great location, so easy to walk almost anyway or access the subway. But more importantly the staff here are all terrific. I have to mention two in particular, Ali who's on the front desk during the day and Michael who's on the desk at night. Both go out of their way to help you. Both are so pleasant to deal with. Ali was so kind and thoughtful this last trip. He made sure I had a great room with a view and that it would be quiet for sleeping. I know next time I'm in Toronto this is where I'll stay.

We stayed for a few days recently in this hotel.
The staff at reception were friendly at all times.
The immediate impression was that the hotel was dated and badly in need of a revamp.
The room was reasonably comfortable, but the decor was dull and shabby.
The window in the room could not be opened.
There was 2 big tables in the breakfast room and we helped ourselves to the continental breakfast.
The lady who was in charge of the dining room ( a lady with glasses and black hair) had no personality and never opened her mouth to interact with the guests.
on the positive side there was tea/coffee facilities available at reception.
We noticed they are applying for planning permission to demolish the hotel and build in the new.
Would we return to this hotel again?
Yes we would when it is re built and brought up to modern standards.
We found the hotel centrally located to everything.

Thank you for your feedback. I was pleased to hear you enjoyed the comfortable clean bed, found the staff helpful and certainly a great location. We will be undergoing a complete renovation in the near future, which will certainly address the carpet and outdated furniture.
Again, thanks for your comments.

There was no hot water in the hotel room I stayed in. I complained to the front desk and they said I just had to run the water longer for it to kick in. I tried explaining that I had just tried showering for over twenty minutes and it still hadn't gotten even warm, but received no help. The money you spend on this place is because it is downtown, definitely not because it's worth the amenities and service.

My sincere apologies for the hot water issue you encountered while staying with us. We unfortunately, experienced a problem with our boiler that has since been repaired and our hot water is now working fine. Your feedback is much appreciated and we hope you will consider staying with us again on your next trip to Toronto.

It was my sons first road trip alone with friends..so I was a bit worried...not really familiar with the area as I hadn't been to Toronto in years I really wanted to be sure about the location...The employees I spoke with on the phone were so understanding and helpful... feeling reassured I went ahead and booked a room......The boys had an amazing time and told me the front desk staff was so very kind and helpful...the hotel is in a great location..close to shops and public transport..and the breakfast, of course, was a bonus..we are planning a trip back to Toronto in the very near future, this time the family all together, and we will definitely be booking at this hotel again..Huge thanks to a great staff for making my sons Toronto trip such a pleasant one...
