The price was right, so I reserved a room at the Canada's Best Value Inn in Kitchener. Great location, just off Hwy 85, close to all the fast-food places from Burger King and McDonalds to Arby's and Swiss Chalet. The room is exactly what you would expect at this price. It is a bit run-down, but there is adequate parking,...

This is one of the worst places we have stayed so far this year!! Run down, filthy, and I would suggest they'd tear it down! The bathroom is reasonable clean, but completely run down. The bed is sticky, and not clean. Wifi is very poor, and only outside you get a good signal. Stay away.

Had to switch rooms, but that didn't help. Sheets and bedspread were protein stained. Toilet didn't flush and I had to sleep upright on the chair just to stay clean. The rooms are rented out per month and the people there don't care what time it is and are very noisy at all hours. Continued until 430 am. Had to...

I was working in Waterloo. I had back to back shifts and I needed a place to sleep in between. 5 hours of sleep. Room is seedy. Not very clean. Manager seemed to have an "attitude" against women. But you only get what you pay for. $73.45 including taxes.

I know that the price is cheap so I didn't expect too much from it. There was no security to my room! You can open my door through the window that would not lock! We saw 2 rooms of people going in and out by opening their doors through the window. I could not believe it, so I tried it...

Was searching for a place to stay while on a short visit to Kitchener. The place looked clean from the outside, but inside was not. While the Customer Service was O.K., the room wasn't. Stayed one night and bed bugs consumed me! Had to leave at daybreak.

This Place is crawling with dirty prostitues. Think twice before renting. Prostitues from ( Backpages ) are set up in this hotel. Kitchener Police should really take a close look at this dirt hole. Better yet close this place down.

I booked this place through booking.com after realizing I had to stay over in Waterloo for business but had forgotten to mention to the client I needed to bill for accommodations and didn't want to do so after the fact. So I would have to "eat" as little as possible RE the hotel bill that I wasn't being reimbursed for,...

“Higher floors give a better view of any approaching danger, and offer 3 staircases to get to ground level if need be. But if you find it unavoidable the drop to the ground level is Minimal at best, make sure you leave with everything you brought as the motel owners/staff always seem to never find what you have lost, even when you know is there, be firm and don't allow yourself to walk away until you have got back your property”
