    Fabulous

    Adequate.

    Room was clean, hotel appears well maintained for its age.

    Service in dining room was very slow. Long distances from rooms to lobby/dining. If we stayed there again, I would ask for a room closer to the lobby.

    Exceptional

    It was a totally renovated, very clean hotel with state-of-the-art features including extremely high-speed WiFi. Breakfast (up to $7/person) in their comfortable full-service restaurant was included, and enough to provide a full sit-down breakfast such as bacon/sausage 2 eggs, toast, country potatoes, juice & coffee (gratuity extra). For us it was a chance stop-over for us on a long road trip and we were most favorably surprised.

    We had no problems at all.

    The smell was terrible. The minute we walked in it was awful. The gym equipment was awful if you were even able to get them to work. The pool and attendant were sketchy at best and we opted to turn around and go back to our room. If we didn't have to be there for an early morning game, we would have left.

    Fabulous

    I enjoyed most of the staff, they were mostly all friendly and accommodating. Even had a conversion with a couple. The restaurant ladies were all extremely friendly, especially the one that mostly waited on us. We were/are in room 108 and she brought us food. Picked up our plates, was friendly with our dog and when I came a little before 11 to eat breakfast and tried to tip. Extra, she said no, it's no problem. But I left it for her anyway. I wish I knew her name. She's tiny, longer hair, was in a pony tail and she was a younger lady. Hopefully that will let you know who she is because she was amazing.

    The only one thing I was upset about is one day when I got out of the pool and asked for a towel, the lady didn't answer me at all. Just got the towel and when I said thank you, she didn't respond. I was just drying of by the table to put my clothes over my baking suit then I was heading back to my room. She said, you know there's a locker room right over there. That's when I told her I was just drying off before I went back to my room. She said oh. Then seemed a little friendlier. But nothing I hate more is when I'm talking to someone who's job is to help me and I get no response.

    Very good

    The wait staff in the attached restaurant was fantastic. Very pleasant, prompt and professional.

    Rooms were dated and cleanliness was not a priority.

    Very good

    The room was large, the bed comfortable & the bathroom well appointed and very clean.

    We arrived on Sunday late afternoon and were not told about their restaurant being open that night. We tried the door to what we thought was the restaurant but it was the pub which was not open on Sunday night. Nothing was open in the area so we ended up having a snack at Tim Horton's which was barely edible. If the desk person had informed us about the hotel and what it offered we could have had dinner at the restaurant. We had a fine breakfast at the restaurant on Monday morning. The coffee wasn't so great though - not hot enough and not strong enough for us.

    Exceptional

    Our family liked everything. People were pleasant and friendly. Room was clean functional. The hotel restaurant had really good for a reasonable price. I still dream of the seafood chowder and proper oyster crackers washed down with an ice cold pint. Pool was very large and fun.

    Had a great experience, but tub drained slow and shower head leaked. I would recommend moving the refrigerator cabinet from in from of the A/C unit. The cabinet doesn't allow for efficient circulation around the room. Closet didn't seem wide enough to hang cloths and close the door.

    We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub, as well as having a restaurant right there after a long drive. The staff were all so friendly and helpful!

    Great breakfast, like that you take 14.00 off the bill for two adults. Our family of three only had to pay 7.56 one morning and 10.58 the second morning for breakfast. Nice pool area. Friendly staff.

    Coffee in the room was awful. And first night there we had a truck parked outside our first floor window that had two dogs in it and they kept barking, especially at 5:00 a.m.!
