We stayed at this Hotel again on our way to Toronto. Since our last stay the Hotel has seen a make over. Great job they have done upgrading the rooms, making then brighter and they have that clean smell and even adding USB charging ports. Rooms are equipped with a bar fridge and microwave. We got this room for a...

Hotel is a standard Comfort Inn. Currently undergoing renos, but this did not interfere with the experience. We only knew because there was a sign. Room was clean and well styled. Long hallway to the lobby, but there are 5 entrance doors so it was close to parking. Breakfast was great. Hot eggs, sausage, waffles. Cereal, toast, baking, coffee, juice....

This hotel is busy. It is cheap. But it may not be what you expect of a hotel. The third floor is very smokey. I cannot vouch for the other floors. The staff pleasant. I had a no smoking room on the 3rd floor. I moved to another hotel within an hour of arrival and after the staff had attempted...

We had our annual curling bonspiel weekend on 22-23 Jan 16 and as always we were greeted by the friendly staff and their supervisor Holly. Our rooms were great, the location of the Hotel was perfect and just minutes from the downtown areas. We have been coming to the Comfort Inn for years for our bonspiel and will be returning...

First there was a musky scent of cigarettes when it said no smoking. The so called continental breakfast only has hard boiled eggs bananas yogurt bread and orange juice in the small lobby. There is no elevator so I had to carry my heavy bags up so meany steps. And my room was freezing cold because the heating didn't work...

Our hotel of choice when in the area. Renovations started after we reserved a specific room, but Holly called and made sure that the next best option was available for us. Smaller breakfast area that some Choice hotels, but the rooms, the staff and the convenient location make up for everything.

The hotel itself is fine, pretty clean and cheap, but the clientele leaves less to be desired. We had to stay here as all other local hotels were booked for the weekend, and to be honest, if I had known this was going to be my experience I'd have slept in my car. Each night at around 1am the halls...
