Clean hotel, friendly staff...needs remodel badly.
Posted Sep 8, 2016
I'll be honest, when we first got to our room, I was tired and frustrated due to multiple flight delays, so on first glance I was horribly disappointed. The quaint exterior displayed on multiple sites was not what we were greeted with (major construction right next door), the carpet was stained, the furniture looks like something I expect in a dorm. We primarily chose the room based on location and price, and I was starting to wish I stayed on the more modern side of town.
The next day though, things started looking up, and I understood why this place was recommended. The bathroom appeared to be the newest part of the room, and it was very clean. The staff are amazing. The gentleman that works the front desk during the day is more than worth the stiff mattress, the breakfast brought to our room wasn't fancy, but for anyone traveling on a budget it's more than enough to get you through the day until lunch.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel based primarily on the location and the staff. As far as location goes, it's an easy walk to "Old Montreal", it's surrounded by amazing places to eat, and there is a major metro hub right down the block. I truly hope that someone can put some money into this hotel to get rid of the old carpet and buy better mattresses, because if it wasn't for the staff and the location, I really don't think this place would be around much longer. Even with the negatives, I would probably stay there again just for those two things.
