    Nothing, this was a horrible place

    Terrible place. To begin with, it is located at the end of a tram line and there is 24-hour noise from the trams going in and out of the station. Be very careful with this detail because you will not get any sleep, you can hear them 24 hours and they are loud! Do not take the third floor rooms, they all stink as if they were washed in nicotine.. The second floor room that I was given had the floor carpet soaked with water so I had to jump over that spot on the way to the bathroon. Of, the breakfast is horrible, bagels that were fresh a week before, water down orange jiuce and the two bananas that were there in the morning had seen better days around Christmas time

    Exceptional

    Well, with the bad reviews, I expected much less. We got a clean room, an upgrade even...everything was well within expectations for a standard motel with basic amenities. The location was almost perfect for a budget hotel, with a McDonald's, Convenience Store, Breakfast Restaurant X2 and a deli ad pharmacy. Right on the trolly route and quick to downtown. Breakfast was standard continental, with toast, bagels, bananas, juice, coffee cereal and waffles. Everything was clean and efficient. The only issues we had were guests that were a it noisy (barking dogs). Otherwise this was an excellent stay at a value hotel. I look forward to using the facility in the future.

    That breakfast ended promptly at 10 am. Otherwise the experience was good. We had a problem with the card readers (they kept resetting), but I believe that was a security issue because we had three+ cards to use.

    Fabulous

    Manager Eugine has been very helpful on the multiple occasions that I have stayed there over the past three years as well as female staff day concierge that works until 11 pm.

    the rooms were not properly cleaned especially the shower and bathroom.

    Very good

    1. Location - on a nice ethnic street, close to parks and lakeshore. 2. Good public transportation. 3. Not too expensive.

    1. Free breakfast could be better - how about boiled eggs and fresh fruit to make it more balanced and healthier ?! 2. The safes in the room do not work - a biggish minus if you have cash, passports and valuables with you.

    Good

    Just about the best value hotel we could find on line. Accommodation in Toronto very expensive. Easily accessible by very frequent tta street car from downtown, details readily available from front desk prior to arrival. (Tram route # 504). Airport easily reached by tta tram, train and bus, $2 each for seniors. Breakfast one of the best. Staff helpful.

    Size of room.

    Nothing, just leaving the hotel.

    We recommand to AVOID this place. First of all - calling this hotel "lake shore" is hardly the truth. you might get to the lake shore if you cross the highway, and it takes about 10 minutes, at least. Not to mention, you CAN NOT even see the lake or the shore from the hotel. Second, the trams crossing right beside the hotel and there is a parking lot of trams at the back side. Third, the parking arrangment is in a big residential building and it is 3 blocks away (about 5-10 minutes walking), and they charge 12$ per day (including the tax), while there is a public parking closer that costs about half. The place needs a serious renovation, and it has no elevator. The service is awful - we booked for 2 nights and after seeing the place we asked to leave after the first night (just because we arrived late) and they wouldn`t refund the second night, and the manager practically shouted at us.

    The electricity regularly went off leaving me dangerously standing in the shower in the dark. The covers of the bed had a cigarette burn in it. Quite noisy due to thin window glass.

    It is located near the lake. Enjoy walking to lake shore.

    Room was too small and could not get on to the bed from other side. Room was not clean and found the hairs in bath room when we first checked in. Asked to change the room, without success. Located next the train stop and hear the noise late at night. TV is very old and sound was bad. We stayed at second floor, and third floor is smoking. As soon as we get into staircase, we smell the strong cigarret smoke..

    My stay at this location was an experience from Hell. I have never stayed at a hotel that the rooms were so terrible. You had no more than 10" around one bed and the other bed was against the wall. There is no way a house cleaner could vacuum under the beds for the lack of space. The tv was located at the bottom side of the bed which meant you had to lay at the bottom of the bed to see the set. You were expected to pay $10.00 to park in a parking lot that you locked into as the vehicles are parked butt to butt and when you need out they did not even know who's vehicles were who'S. We were not advised that parking at the side of the building was not permitted and my vehicle could have been towed away as we arrived in the dark. The hotel is located basically at a streetcar parking lot which again I did not see as it was located at the other side of the building. Some of the people working the desk did not know what they were doing and I was charged twice on my visa for the room which I still have to straighten out with the manager. I would never stay there again or recommend this location to anyone. Very disappointed in this location as I have stayed in other locations and they are very nice hotels. The pictures of the rooms on line where like other locations, but nothing like we experienced here. I can not believe these rooms would pass the building code or fire code for that matter. Disgruntled client. I even took pictures to show my family because know one would believe you how bad the place was. The only thing I can say is the sheets smelt clean as you could smell the javex even in the halls. Price was extreme for the conditions. I would not put my dog up in this place.
