      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?

      Undesirable hotel


      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.

      Never Again!


      - 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!

      ... multiple unsuccessful phone calls, a 3 hour trip through the customer service line, and frantic internet searches on Kayak), we finally booked new flights. Interestingly, in our desperation to get to Mekele in a timely manner, we momentarily contemplated booking flights with a quick layover in Saudi Arabia, as nearly all of the available flights included this leg. GOOD THING WE DIDN'T, as we later discovered that even layovers ...

      Leaving Toronto for New Zealand

      This morning we headed to the airport where we met Penny and Barry to start our long trek to New Zealand. We were all looking forward to the trip but concerned about the time the trip would take. We were leaving Toronto for Los Angeles via Air Canada where we would have and eight hour layover before our flight on Air New Zealand to Auckland which would take 13 ...

      Toronto is a a big city, much bigger than Montreal but it is a city under construction. Every where we went there were skyscrapers and high rise apartment blocks being built. There were plenty of roadworks and Union Station was being completely renovated. Obviously the effects of the GFC are not being felt here.

      We did all the touristy things including visiting the CN Tower, the Financial Centre, St Lawrence Market, St James Cathedral, ...

      Reflections on the land of maple syrup

      A travel blog entry by emilytoronto on Aug 25, 2014


      Last night I arrived in Toronto. Here are some of my reflections on the lovely Canada so far.

      1) The Canadians are really polite and lovely. An older woman came up to me today and asked about my Warwick jumper. She went on to explain that she was a former U of T graduate and we had a lovely chat! No offence to England, but I highly doubt that would happen in ...

      Of course, catching up with the many wonderful family and friends who live in this part of the world was the ultimate highlight. As always, our time was far too short; I personally could have played with my Canadian friends and their toys for weeks! A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to catch up and to the many who hosted us as we house hopped around the city. We look forward to our next visit, and to seeing everyone visit us in ...
