          The renovations that have been completed (my room) were excellent.

          There is a lot of renovation that needs to be completed to bring this hotel to a standard for which I would book again.

          Staff at check in were excellent.

          Hotel screwed up booking then did not apologize or fix -I had to call you (Booked.net) and you applied the necessary pressure to get a fix for this (thanks!) Some staff need to be trained in customer service as they do not know how to help, admit mistake and fix it. We were the most reasonable people in the world to deal with too, not rude with them. Attitude of staff person dealing with problem was dismissive of my situation and totally lacking in empathy.

          I've stayed at this hotel several times in the past (out of necessity), because it was the only one in the area. I found the accomodations and the look of the place about one step up from a sleazy motel. The rooms were old, dirty and lacked proper maintenance. I had heard that there major contruction going on at the hotel, so I had reservations this time when I booked my room weather to stay or not. Although the amenities in the hotel have not changed in the last 20 years, I was told on checking in that some of the rooms had been given a major update. I was pleasently surprised by the room my wife and I were given. It was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed our stay.

          Check-in time is to late (3pm). After driving from Ottawa (6 hours) we arrived at the hotel at 1:30 pm and when we went to check in the clerk told us that there were no rooms available until the check-in time of 3pm. Also, I noticed one of the front desk people arriving to start their shift and parked their car in a Handicapped parking spot right next to the front door. The person then perceded to get out of the car and walk into the hotel. I looked at the car and there was no Handicapped Plate or tag. The car was still there 3 hours later when I left. I was very tempted to call the police to give them a ticket. Your office staff should know better.

          Friendly, helpful staff. Unpretentious hotel with friendly atmosphere offering excellent value for money.

          5.0

          the staff was very friendly

          The room we had was disgusting we found rolling papers in our bed, looked like puke sprayed up our t.v. stand and mold in the bath tub. I didnt take a shower because i was to scared of heating up the mold and mildew and getting sick. The housekeepers NEED to be retrained!!! very unhealthy and unsanitary. The other famimly members that stayed at the hotel with us felt the same about their rooms as well.

        • Family with children

          Breakfast was good. Also, the hotel and my room were generally fairly clean,

          Room was a little shabby; holes in wall, mismatched paint in places.places hotel seemed outdated, needs sprucing up.

        • Older travelers

          I liked the room with the jacuzzi in it. It is great it was put in a separate room by itself. The breakfast bar was good.

          They need to work on extended stays. When the dnd sign is on the door for most of the morning and then removed, they need to come back and check with the people in the room either by calling up to them in the room or by knocking to see if the maid service can get in to clean the room. Our room was not cleaned one day and that is not justifiable esp. When you are paying out the money to stay there. They told me they only do one sweep of the floor to see if you are out of your room and don't come back to do it after that. That is not right. They need to check with the paying customers. We had overflowing garbage, no bed made and no clean towels etc. Also the pool was closed and if I had known that, I would not have booked there. Nothing was stated on the website about the pool not in operation. Thought it would have been a more enjoyable stay.

          It was close by our intended destination.

          The room was not as clean as we are use to,The bathroom facilities were very poor, no working ice machine available, Bed was very uncomfortable.

        • Couple
          7.8

          The breakfast in the morning was a bonus; it helped to start our day and was very convenient.

          You can hear the train, but no biggie really.
