    Great Place, Great Location, Great Owners

    We loved this place and the owners! They were so helpful and accommodating. We called for a room late in the same day we wanted to stay there. They were booked up but called us back and offered to let us use their "VIP Apartment" below their living quarters (adjoining the motel) at the Single Queen Room Rate, which they normally only make available to friends and family. This apartment was just that -- not a "normal" motel room -- it had a bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom (all small but all there). It was furnished and decorated very "smartly" with a Middle Eastern theme.

    We had a very nice conversation with the owners in the morning before we left. They told us about how they bought the motel with no previous experience in such things, have slowly put their own "signature" on it (decorating each of the 17 rooms, plus the VIP apartment) in the motif of a country they've visited. We wish them all the best in this endeavor -- they have apparently come so far with this little motel and made it an oh-so-charming place to stay at an oh-so-attractive price.

    The rooms at The Rex are small, approx. 120 sq ft and they make great use of the space. The furnishings are simple and classy, the bed is comfortable and the location is top notch.

    The rooms are facing Queen West, smack dab in the middle of The Entertainment District and The Rex itself is a restaurant/pub that realizes its true character as a live jazz & blues bar by night.

    The food is good and while there is no coffee maker in the room, you are treated to a complimentary breakfast in the morning. The owner is very gracious and the service from various members of his staff, is top notch.

    There is really no reason no to stay at The Rex.

    In the Heart of the City

    I generally take 'pilgrimages' to the city a few times a year, to take in a concert, go to the museum visit the AGO or just to get out of my familiar surroundings. This visit was just an overnighter as I was catching a train bound for New York the next morning, and AMTRAK only runs once a day out of Toronto. I stayed at The Rex this time, after …

    ... it was about 1am in the morning according Toronto time.
    I did catch up with a film
    Angela's Ashes based on a book it is very grim but overall to be recommended although it bombed at box office.

    We arrived back, me with a bit of a cold (came on in Niagara) which is par for the course, but Leith has not caught as yet.

    All the best.

    Fort York and Canada National Exhibition

    A travel blog entry by izyeejx on Aug 29, 2013

    ... walked around and visited some of the exhibit. After the whole experience, I finally found out why Fort York is the birth place of Toronto city. It also raised my interest in the war of 1812-1815. It was a really good history lesson and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who would want to find out bout the beginnings of Toronto city. The CNE was a surprise as well. CNE was like the Singapore Expo, with a catch. It costs 16 dollars per adult to get in. ...

    Terrible Toronto

    ... for some time along with others who had the same issue as us. Got to the front of the line and the woman there wasin a real grumpy mood. I largely bit my toungue at the way she spoke to my wife as Liz batted it away. Given our experience so far with this place I was a little surprised.

    So, eventually we get checked in and now have boarding passes but they do not have a baggage carousel here.

    Off to our next directed point which is Customs ...
