Got this place for a night of shopping off Expedia.ca (Hotwire) for $58 bucks. We took it as it stated that it 'was' a 3.5 star which Expedia associated with name brand hotels such as Hilton etc. It is definitely not a Hilton (though it was many years ago).
For the money we paid, it met our expectations, but as other's have said , her better day's are behind her. You can tell this hotel is in full survival mode, doing just what it can to stay a float. Staffing is at a bare minimum. Heating is reserved for area's used (hallway's and other transient area's were cold) The restaurant's and bar are no longer functioning, except to run a bare minimum continental breakfast (selection of fresh bagels, fruit danish, some cornflakes and cheerios, and toast). Coffee and tea was good as was the orange juice.
We took a walk through the fitness area, the pool was warm today (compared to other reviews when it was not), the sauna did work, the fitness area had the minimum selection of free weights and some resistance weights). It appears some of their Precor equipment could use servicing as I could not get the treadmill to advance it's speed (buttons didn't work) and the other didn't work at all.
The hotel has a funky smell to it (like you would expect from someplace that has been closed up a little too long) but flip side is that they don't try to mask it with nasty deodorizer's/chemicals.
Check in was okay, staff were helpful in that as we booked via a mystery hotel site, we didn't know what kind of room we were guaranteed. They were going to put my wife and I in a double room on a Friday night, as their King rooms were being reserved for a conference on Saturday. The excuse was they didn't want to mess the room's up (I think their housekeeping staff is at a minimum), but after assuring them that we would be out early they relented and gave us a King Room.
Pleasantly surprised with the comfort of the bed. Good support with a pillow top comforter added (not pillow-top mattress as stated). The linen's were clean, the duvet cover and blanket were nice/excellent shape. The bathroom was clean, though the tub's need some renovations (worn). Little things like a lamp shade in the bathroom was torn (made of paper) and some cig' hole in the carpet) were noted. The furniture, though dated was in good shape. The wireless internet worked well and was high speed (could you Google Phone to call home). Some wall paper noted in corner coming away (suggesting water damage) as well as some white plaster dust mold noted near a capped off water pipe where rad used to be. The heater in room worked well, though the cycling on and off was sometimes annoying.
We are not a picky pair so we are okay with listing the place as average for our visit and use. My wife did suggest that she wouldn't have felt comfortable staying here alone though as there were no other people around and at times place felt deserted.
