“Basic room, wished I looked elsewhere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2012

Got a double with en-suite for a night and it's very basic. Bathroom was disappointing. The sink was a little gross, it was clean but needed to be replaced. Mattress is the typical dorm style mattress so its not overly comfortable (it was good enough for one night). Location was very good, but for the price (~$100 for the double en-suite), it would be worth the extra money to get an actual hotel. They have cheaper options if you don't want an en-suite room or double bed.

I would not stay there again, but overall, the place was clean, quiet and a safe place to spend the night.

Tip: Weekend parking at 1250 Guy (around the corner) is only $6.25/day.
