All I can say was that my partner and I found a cockroach in our room (which was incredibly disgusting!). The front desk staff gave me the creeps, and even though they gave us a room with a jacuzzi, which was nice, but when we looked out the window, we saw a giant brick wall!!! I don't plan to go there again and wouldn't recommend it to anybody.
Spent 2 nights here at this excuse for a hotel - Days Inn must be ashamed to have this hotel as one of their chain - terrible service and staff - the room was the size of a shoebox also and get this - no plug for the bath/shower would you believe!!!
Only saving grace was the bar across the road - quality!!!
So much for all Canadians being nice!
AVOID! Hotel parking is 4 minutes away and you have to pay $15 per night to park there. I paid cash for parking, but they also charged my credit card. I reserved 3 nights, but I couldn't stay more than one and checked out early the next morning. The hotel refused to refund more than one night's stay. Spend the extra money for a decent hotel.
I cant beleve its in service.
I cant beleve the Days Inn Corp. would allow this place to be in service. Rude staff/Management embarrased me infront of my guest with some comment he may have found witty. Small rooms, nothing worked (alarm clock/Iron/Coffee maker ect.) I will be contacting Days Inn about this place.
Can't move..Can't breath..Can't eat there..
This place is discusting. I have stayed in several motels across North America and this was the poorest excuse for a place to stay I have ever had. Given that this place was reccomended by the CAA I was shocked and will never use them for travel again. The rooms are like the size of a walk in closet. Very dirty,dust so thick on carpet edges unreal. Front desk service very rude. Parking and unloading of luggage next to impossible and instruction as to where you are suppose to do this very unclear. Non-smoking rooms and floors smell like an ash tray. The Free breakfast I would not feed to a dog. Cooked in a filthy Kitchen. I will not be staying at a Days Inn ever again. I was aked by some American guests if all Candian Hotels are like this? Pretty bad eeh?
I stayed in a room that was next to the street car garage. The street cars run 24 hours a day and repairs are done at this site 24 hours. Needless to say, not a very good night's sleep. I don't know if all the rooms on this side of the hotel have this problem, but the room I was in should not be available for vacationers. Parking is a few blocks away and was told not a safe place at night. Breakfast not served until 7:30 a.m. posted signs at hotel and internet indicated 7 a.m. Two women leaving told me that their room was filthy and they slept with their clothes on.
Run down hotel
Stayed at this Hotel on our last night. We were thankful that we were staying here for one night only. Very run down and the room allocated to us was very small. Room faced the main road with noisy tramlines - and the trams ran most of the night. Breakfast was taken next door but it was awful. On the plus side the room was clean enough and the bathroom was adequate, but wouldnt advise staying here for more than one night. There are plenty other hotels of better standard for same money.
Dirty, Poor Customer Service
This hotel is horrible. The room was so small, you could hardly move.
Reserved a non-smoking room and the room still smelled like smoke. When told the manager, she said "the previous guest must have smoked". She made no effort to give me another room. There were cakes of dust around the edges, the bathtub had a purple ring around it, dirt on the bathroom fixtures and someone left a dish of some kind of dried food in the room. The free breakfast consisted of 1 egg, greasy potatoes and a hot dog, the table cloths were dirty. Parking is about 200 feet away in a private garage, charging $12.00 a day, plus a sneaky $2.00 a day safe fee. The area is not too good with beggers roaming the street. The rate was cheap, but with the added parking and inconvienience, for a few more dollars you could find a decent hotel downtown.
Not a place to stay if you can afford it.
Stayed, for a nieces birthday to enjoy the pool, Yuk, the rooms are small and not the place to stay if you can afford better.
- the hotel was tired at best, run-down at worst; - the window in my room was broken and required proping up to keep out the insects; - I was entertained on a sporadic but on-going basis by an individual, seemingly staying in the hotel, screaming obscenities; - the noise of the streetcars was significant and sleep interupting.
NEVER AGAIN! suggests the timing of my next stay!

... all Niagara Falls related and all very enjoyable. In the evening we watched fireworks over the falls which had been lite up again horribly tacky as the colours were so gaudy! Day 4 The morning was spent at Niagara on the Lake, this is a very pretty little town just outside Niagara and such a contrast from Niagara town as is totally unspoilt with the most beautiful houses and architecture and lovely little shops. We then left here and had a long drive ...
... go home before she got to the airport. By the time I checked in it was almost 11:00 but I decided to have something to eat in spite of the hour. Pier 73 is a restaurant attached to the hotel on the Fraser River - not much to see in the dark, but they say the sunsets are magnificent. The seafood salad (scallops, prawns and salmon) was delicious and not too filling before bed. Bedtime in Ontario time was actually 3:00 am. I hope tomorrow is a better ...
... the looong ride up, it was a perfect day to see across all of Toronto and afar. We made friends with the barman who gave us his top tips to Toronto....which started with a distillery called the Steam Whistle (surprising for a barman to start us there?!). Free sampler and a look around the old train turning station we were off to find some ceilings Amber ...

It's hard to believe that a week from today we will be on the plane and on our way! I've spent more time this week researching my third great-grandfather Charles Campbell, to see where exactly he came from on the Isle of Skye, but the information is very scarce. I will see when I get there if I can find out anything about Gortnacraig farm near Portree.
Lots of things to do before I get away though. Our subdivision had a huge yard sale yesterday. We ...
