Nice family hotel
Posted Sep 12, 2016
The front desk was super helpful. She checked us in about an hour early, let us know of upcoming renovations, and told us the pool slide times (and that we should avoid them if we wanted a quiet swim as there were lots of families - useful information!).
The pool was nice, though you can tell it needs a facelift. It was really warm and clean. The whirlpool wasn't great. It was actually a bit cool compared to the pool.
The room was nice, with a big bathroom, pretty comfortable. The A/C ran very well.
Unfortunately breakfast kinda sucked. We chose this hotel specifically from the others available so we wouldn't have to go out for breakfast. It turned out to be a big let down for a 'hot breakfast'. The only things that were hot were greasy sausages and rubbery (out of a bag) scrambled eggs. My boyfriend was pretty upset about the lack of bacon. I tried a waffle from the waffle maker, which tasted like cardboard. No toppings to go with except fake maple syrup. Coffee was also awful, so we stopped at Tim's on our way home. The only things that were good were the boiled eggs, cereal, and bagels... which are available at most other hotels as part of their 'cold breakfast'.
Overall the pool made up for the lack of breakfast. This hotel looks perfect for families. The location is right off the highway, within driving distance to downtown and restaurants.
