... falls in the morning light are really something. The Niagara Falls are made up if 3 falls. 2 are on the US side and the big one, the horseshoe falls are on the Canadian side. The horseshoe falls have a vertical drop of more than 53 m and are very wide. More than six million cubic feet of water falls over the crest line every minute in high flow] and almost four million cubic feet during average flow. We needed to have an early lunch today so we stopped ...
... we went to the amusement park which turned our to be rides for children only. It wasn't all that bad cause I had some fun trying to take photos of cute kids. After that we walked down to the animal farm which had all the farm animals. The highlight was when I spotted an alpaca. It was an animal I've never seen with my eyes before and finally got a chance to. The island beach was quite like Sentosa except the water was a lot ...
... to see that so many people choose to use a bicycle as their means of transportation and the vehicular traffic doesn’t even seem to give them pause! Though Jim is having no trouble driving in this traffic ( I knew he would be ok), we have come to realize that in comparison to this, our lives are very laid back! This is what hustle and bustle really.
We are directed to The Gardiner Expressway which takes us right into the downtown ...
... and then I went to my gate, leaving her on her own. We sent text messages until the time we each had to turn our phone off.
When I landed in Phoenix I attempted to turn on my phone on the taxiway to see if she made her connection. No phone, it was dead as a doornail. I worked with it until I had to get off but there was nothing.
Of course by the time I got off the plane and got my carryon my next flight was already ...
... in Toronto. Getting a flight out of Toronto took up a good part of the evening, but we were finally able to get booked on a flight to Cincinnati at 6:30 Sunday night. So…we stayed Saturday night and all day Sunday in Toronto…not a part of our plan, but we will head home on Sunday. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Howard Johnson Toronto Lakeshore
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.
This hotel is horrible. The room was so small, you could hardly move.
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!
