    excellent location for event we attended at Palais Royale on Lakeshore

    parking was not that convenient

  • Single

    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

    nothing...it was disgusting

    no place to park, not even to check-in, no option but to take a smoking room (could hardly breathe), room in poor repair, cigarette burn holes everywhere, no elevators,

  • Group of friends

    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.

    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.

    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.

    for 2 days they did not clean my room, second day the breakfast did not start in time, we didn't eat in the hotel. and pay 15$ in mackdonald

    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.

    Manager there did try and help us .

    Many things rude night staff person, mouse in the room , bugs in bath tub, no garbage can in room , no face clothes , a charge of $2 for more towels, hjad to move every night for a 4 night stay , never got the room I requested through you.

    The hotel was filthy.

  • Couple

    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.

    Very close to the lake. Good location.

    The room is too small.

  • Single

    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.

    No on-site parking. Not mentioned in the booking.
