    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!

    ... that we did not have mobile phone coverage or internet data on our phones. This was a big concern because we needed the information to get to our destination: Cait's place just west of downtown Toronto. Outside it was dark and cold (and I mean COLD) and whilst we had everything printed out in hard copy in our folders, we do find it comforting to see a map of where we were to head on our phone's GPS. Especially after our experience in Seattle a few years ago when the taxi ...

    ... cold! Hannah gave me a
    lovely tour around State street, which had lots of little bookshops and
    boutiques. It had a strange small town feel while also being a city! That
    evening, I enjoyed a beautiful burrito at Chipotle-the Americans sure know how
    to cook food!

    The following morning, I returned to my roots as an
    overexcited tourist, checking out the War Veterans Museum. It was an impressive
    place, spanning from the Civil War to the modern ...

    ... day walking in Rekjavik planned. Icelandair charges for all food and doesn't serve hot meals so I could just sleep thru their meal service.



    We landed in darkness so there wasn't anything to see on arrival. The guy next to me who was a local asked me if it was my first time in Iceland and how I liked it? I said I don't know ...

    Waking up on the third day still feeling a bit sick from last night but not letting it get to me too much, I jumped out of bed and went down to have a light breakfast. Once breakfast was finished, I started packing my bags because I was going bungee jumping near the Rockies. That wasn't until two o’clock so I planned to go to the Royal Ontario Museum to learn a bit about Canada and its history. Caught the elevator down and walked out the front to see a courtesy bus for ...
