"Very friendly service, dirty rooms."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
First room was very dirty. We have dogs and I believe the rooms we sub standards due to that fact. Staff was very nice and was able to offer a second room choice that was a room over from the first. I did not want to my bare feet on the carpet!

03-Dec-2019 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Nov 29 to Sat Nov 30 2019 at a C$109.86 average nightly rate.
Overall Score2.0/ 5
This property is out dated. The first room they put us in was: smelly smelled like dog poop, wet spot on the floor from dog pee, dust and cobwebs all over, some sort of mysterious stuff on the wall. The guy that checked us in was not friendly and unwilling to change our room. After speaking to the manager we got moved. As we were to leave to go to dinner another woman was about to enter our room obviously they Gabe us her room. The pool was very warm. My daughter only swam for a short time due to this. The breakfast was good and the worker was friendly. I learned from this visit when booking a room online you get the crappy rooms. The manager encouraged me to call and speak to them after booking to ensure you get a decent room. I would not suggest staying at this property until they do a complete renovation.

"Good stay for your money."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
A decent hotel. Good location as Doordash can deliver to the hotel. WiFi was unavailable during my whole visit and the hotel room could've definitely been cleaner. Would stay again if I absolutely had to.
