First off, do NOT (I repeat, do NOT) book this room on Expedia. Book the room directly through the college. Unfortunately, Trip Advisor sent me there to book my room, and I later discovered that Expedia charged a $30 USD commission, which the reservation form stated "not to show the guest." The room would have been $67 CND + tax + $100 CND deposit, had I booked through the hotel. As it was, I had to pay the $100 CND deposit upon arrival, which Expedia did not include in the reservation information.
Although this is a dorm, the entrance for each "suite" opens into a small kitchen area with a table, LARGE refrigerator and freezer, and microwave. There is a private bathroom with shower off the main area. There are two bedrooms, each with a double bed (college mattress), desk, drawers, two lamps, open closet area, and cable television.
The university just hooked up wifi; however, ethernet is still more reliable. The receptionist loaned me at no charge.
The doors are wide enough for a wheelchair, although you would need to bring your own shower/toilet chair for height/stability.
This is only a hotel in the summer months. During the year, it functions as a dorm. Please do not let the stained carpet in the lobby deter you. The rooms themselves are quite nice!
