      Historical Traveler Reviews Howard Johnson Toronto Lakeshore

      Yuck!

      from

      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.

      Shoebox!

      from

      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!

      from

      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.

      from

      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..

      from

      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?

      Undesirable hotel

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      from

      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.

      Never Again!

      from

      - 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!

      ... pay for the service. As I sat there and people watched it was insane how an area with 50 plus people easy didn’t say a single word to the person next to them. There was silence. I found that to be a little frightening and worry about what the future as in store for civilization. I find it insane that no one communicates by speaking to one another anymore. It’s all through texts and social media. Now don’t get me wrong, I am a ...

      ... for the first time. Amazing! Drove on up to Toronto where we booked into a motel in the north in an area called Scarborough. Found a huge shopping mall and had lunch and let loose on the shops for an hour. Drove down to the edge of Lake Ontario where there was a sandy beach and where they were filming some local soap. Found a pub walking distance away and became best friends with a man and his son. His friend turned up and they invited us back to their home for further ...

      We had about two hours to take photos of the Falls. There have been tunnels cut on the side so that you go down about below ground level about 20m (I think) to view the falls another tunnel takes you to a viewing area between the water and ...

      ... but the whole time you're there with a smile on your face because how many people can say they have not only been to Niagara Falls, but been in a boat on the river itself and straddled the border of America and Canada at the same time :).

      After the boat ride, Jess decided we should try walking back to the bus depot (I say Jess, because if you do decide to do that walk one day, know that it's not as close as the little map would have you think). It was a good ...

      ... cocky, feeling ghetto element, I then decided to get a pita from the place around the corner from the hostel, have a cup or tea and hit my bed. Sunday - HANG OVER CENTRAL. For those who know me well, know that I become dead to the world when hungover. But it was my last day in Toronto, so when I finally made it out of bed at about 7pm, I went for Poutine and frozen yoghurt with my friend from cali, packed and then went straight back to bed. I absolutely loved Toronto and wish I ...
