“A nice hotel”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Good value. Clean room. Pillows and mattress are quite comfortable. Very helpful and pleasant staff ( all shifts ). Location allows easy access to everything including shopping, China Town and of course the Casino.

This is a nice hotel for the value. The rooms were clean and the furniture seemed fairly new. We went for the superior room which was just a bit more money. It had a fridge and microwave which was nice to have. There is a Tim Hortons right beside the property. They serve a breakfast in the morning. It could be better and the breakfast area needs more seating. The reception staff seemed friendly. The hotel is close to the border but kind of out of the way from any other restaurants or shopping. You definitely need a car. My only real complete was the air conditioner in the room. It worked but was very loud and seemed to run all the time.

Room Tip: From what I am hearing from other reviews you should upgrade to a superior room.

Not booking ahead like we usually do when traveling, my husband and I showed up about 5pm on a weekday evening to see if a room was available. As it turned out, a superior queen room was available which we asked to view before we stayed. A very pleasant staff member took us to view a room on the 2nd floor and gave us a brief tour of that end of the hotel. We decided to take the room for the evening. When we arrived back downstairs to finalize the check-in, while we had been touring, the receptionist had found an available room on the ground floor. We took the ground floor room and as well got a CAA discount. A wonderful start to our impromptu visit.

If you're looking for a fancy, new hotel then this isn't for you. If you're looking for good value and caring staff, you would probably like this place. THE PLUSES: Close to the border, very helpful and courteous staff, free parking, free wi-fi, Tim Horton's next door, central location, a short distance from major highways, very comfortable bed, very clean, microwave and fridge in room, and free breakfast. THE MINUSES: Just a minor comment about the breakfast - yogurt would be a nice addition as well as a better selection of fresh fruit. The eating area was tiny and would only seat 8 people.

All in all, a very pleasant stay. Good value for the money. Upon check-out, the manager asked us if we would review his hotel on Tripadvisor. I figured he had confidence in his hotel and liked that. Would definitely consider staying at this hotel again if in the Windsor area.
