The facility did not have any elevators or lifts or handicap facilities. I had called ahed for a room on the ground floor because I have bad knees, but I was given a room on third floor. The some rooms did not have refrigerators.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The hotel was clean but it was far from Toronto"
The room was very nice. It was clean and nicely decorated. We definitely enjoyed it. Location is the only problem of the hotel. It is around 30 minutes in bus and subway to Toronto. Also, there are not many places around to shop or eatGenuine Expedia guest review
Breakfast was poor and we left to go to McDonalds. No one attending the needs of replenishing milk, etc. Would avoid staying there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Get what you pay for"
We needed accommodation for two nights to attend a wedding but because of the location, good reviews and the price we booked the room for three nights. When we arrived at the hotel there were no car(s) in the hotel parking lot and the adjecent property is a used and broken down cars sales or repair ground. Our first impression before entering was we […] have come to a hotel that no body has booked or checked in. When we did enter the reception counter had no body and I used the phone on the reception desk and dialed '0'. Spoke to a man on the other end who said he will be there right away, which he did. That was TJ. He was very helpful, and promised that our stay will be just fine and he showed us two rooms to pick and we picked the one on first floor. Bed and bathroom were clean, he provided us with a refrigerator upon request. We had good night sleep and the breakfast was OK for the price we paid for the room. Only negative I would say is the old & dirty carpet throughout is a turn off. I noticed on the second day my socks were full (I mean a lot) of cream color hair probably of dog that must have stayed with the previous guest(s). So we checked out after the second night although we had paid in full for three nights while booking. Outside on the Bill board it says new rooms. So I suggest while making the reservation ask if they really have any new or newly renovated room(s). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't do it!!!"
We arrived late at night the room wasnt safe!!! The door did not lock, the smoke detector was ripped from the ceiling, there was a container of Vagisil IN the shower. The hand soap on the sink was open and possibly used. The sheets were dirty and there was garbage on the balcony. And for some reason this place was completely booked and we could not […] be given a different room. I didn't sleep. I waited for the sun to come up and checked out. The only plus, the guy at the front desk helped us with our bags. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is an excellent hotel. It is right outside the city, 10-15 minutes away from everything. Great restaurants all around, I suggest Lick's! The staff are friendly, outgoing, and always wanting to help. The facility is the cleanest!Genuine Expedia guest review
The place is not managed well. We got upgraded after complaining about the cable not working and Wi-Fi too weak. After the upgrade we found the coffee maker not working and there was a bad of trash behind the couch. The shower faucet was leaking. The location was not too close to Toronto, plus Toronto had bad traffic (I'm from Chicago). The staff was […] nice and there to help. The place really needs some repairing.

"Bad hotel with bad rooms."
Bad rooms, not clean, I started to have allergy right after enter into the room. Bad location.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good hotel to stay Breakfast could be betterGenuine Hotels.com guest review
CONS no elevator (had to walk up to the fourth floor) free breakfast - questionable quality security - minimal; questionable area cleaning ladies - will insist on gaining access to your room at noon to clean carpet - old, stained, dirty wifi hard to access; not enough bandwidth PROS affordable good internet access in lobby generous in shampoos, extra […] towels etc Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"CLOSE TO MANY SIGHTS/SHOPPING"
This was our second time staying here within the last year, almost to the day. For the money, you can't go wrong. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and will go out of their way to help. Shopping is nearby...basic stuff like food, clothes, banks,not high-end if that's your thing. Sure came in handy as we had a family event to attend and I found […] out that the dress shirt I had tossed into my luggage in my haste to get to the airport was funky. Downtown is about 45 minutes away by car, barring rush hour traffic of course and there are a couple of highways not far away, 401 and Don Valley Parkway. There are some things to see that aren't light years away like the Toronto Zoo, Ontario Science Centre and Scarborough Bluffs but one caveat...if you don't know the area, bring your GPS or rent one from the car rental. Amenities here are adequate but don't expect what you'd find in a ***** place. The microwave in the lobby and small refrigerator in the room were welcome additions over last year. Parking is free, and there's free Wi-Fi and continental breakfast in the a.m.. A swimming pool I can do without (they don't have one) as people don't tend to be at their cleanliest when using such a facility. Again, for the money you can't go wrong here...beats the $400 per night place I once booked in Los Angeles. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is run down and cleanliness is non-existent: carpet/ tiled floor, bathroom shower area (no bathtub by the way) and shower curtain were all disgusting. Parking lot needs to be paved. Stairway is rusted and rickety.Worse yet are the ongoing plumbing problems, causing leaking ceilings and soaking wet carpet. Breakfast is more than adequate. Thankfully, […] the frontdesk staff are excellent and will work to resolve any issues. I do not intend to return to this hotel because of the filth and the dire need of renovation.

"You get what you pay for"

"Not changing towels at all during a 4-night stay."
Stayed 4 nights at this hotel. It is an okay hotel in terms of location and room size. However, it is not as clean or comfortable as I expected. We had queen size beds, but the bed covers were full-size. That means with any kind of movement the cover would come off easily thus we slept on the mattress without the sheet. Effectively everyone on that […] bed was sharing the same mattress directly without a sheet. Worst yet, the towels were not replaced daily even they were left on the floor. Housekeeping simply just put them back to the rack. I will not recommend this hotel to anyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was not good Experience for me and I certainly would definitely not return ...the carpet smelled Of way too much artificial fragrance ....the shower was not clean ....the shower curtain had not been changed in very long time.... The sheets didn't fit the bed ...... They were too small And rolled up around me as soon as I got into bed... Sorry but […] this one is not for me... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, comfortable and affordable."
Nice hotel. Accept it, you get what you paid for. I have paid more for other places and received much less. This hotel was good. Rooms were clean and the staff was really friendly. The neighborhood is not active or lively but got many restaurants which helps. In my opinion , its worth it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was not a comfort stay."
It is not clean overall. The room is noisy and not clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
i stayed for 10 days and it was decent for the most part. There was noisy and shady crowd for a couple of days. The management was good and kicked out the noisy guests. room service was ok. room smelled ok. So i guess there is nothing to complain about.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Hotel is located in a very scary neighborhood. Worst Hotel I have every stayed in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel for tourist"
Nearby bus station but far away from Downtown area. Wireless is slow and unstable though better than nothing. Complementary breakfast includes breads,waffle,coffee,tea,cereal and juice, that's all. Again, better than nothing. If you are look for a low price with standable room condition, this is a good choice. Staff are friendly. Room is big enough […] and clean.

"A Room for Improvement"
I do not believe that this is a two start hotel as claimed. I stayed before at Howard Johnson Hotel Toronto Yorkville which is classified as two star. Simply, they do not compare. They put a note at the bathroom not to worry if you forgot anything. What could you forget? Mainly, tooth paste, etc. Of course, they did not have it. What is worst is the […] taste of coffee and tea at the breakfast. They do not taste like coffee or tea. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good for the price"
The lowest rate hotel around Toronto. Room is ok but clean enough. Staff is very friendly & helpful. I got sick and had to go to an emergency care. They printed out hospital address, asked me if I'm ok next morning & gave us 2 hour glacé on checkout time. My son left a charger - they found it and they will send back to us. I really appreciated all the […] help!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
First thing we noticed after entering the room, was mold around the bottom of the shower stall. The carpet looked very worn. The bathroom fan and ac/heater unit was caked with dust. The ice maker didn't work. Several of the tv channels had poor reception. Photos online of the breakfast area are not from this location. Its actually located on the bottom […] floor, below ground. Breakfast consisted of only two choices of cereal, (corn flakes or bran) milk, apple and orange juice, toast, miniture muffins, and waffles; which were pretty good.

"Cheap but cheap"
Room undergoing a renovation but it's unfinished - grout on tiles made it look dirty, wall paper ripped down in an area to repair wall. Two towels for four guests - we requested and got more, but they were gone again after the room was cleaned. Thumping bass music from a neighboring room 24 hours a day - we did not call to complain as it lulled our […] kids to sleep. We were okay with it because it was convenient to our destination and VERY inexpensive. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

I didn't enjoy 100% the breakfast, however it is not that bad. The service is wonderful, nice guys.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good price near the Go train"
The front desk staff was very nice and helpful. The room was small. The bathroom was very clean, but the coffee machine area was not cleaned on our second day. We had to go to the front desk just to get a cup for water. There were no towels at all in the room when we checked in. The halls were also in need of a good vacuuming. Parking was easy at the […] hotel and there is a very short drive to the Go train which also had great free parking. The Go train is a quick and easy ride right to Union Station in the heart of Toronto. Overall, it is an old hotel in great need of updating, but the price fit what we got.

"For the price it was worth it!"
The management is helpful, location is a bit rundown - but not dangerous! Rooms are clean and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast is sufficient! Shopping malls are all within a 5 to 20 minute walk!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

place is a litlle run down, but reasonably pricedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
(a) Return from dinner with extra food or late night meal requires aicro wave to heat it up. (b) Does any know that the air condition filters need to be cleaned once a month?Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Budget minded withot kids."
This place was nice, especially for the price, but if you think this place is going to be luxurious you are kidding yourself. I would saythis is a great hotel for budget travelers and young people who are looking for a place to put thei head. If my dad was on this trip, he would have ratedthis worse... His expectations are a little higherthan mine!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Well, that will teach me."
So we needed a place to stay for 2 nights in Toronto just myself and 2 friends. On a budget we decided we could stay on the outskirts of the city to save some money. It wasn't easy finding a cheap place, but you get what you pay for. This Hojo is far, and I mean very far from the city. It doesn't look it on the map but it was 45 min driving each time […] we wanted to go, granted part of that was traffic on the 401 but there is always traffic there so it counts. The outside of the hotel is downright awful, and the neighborhood isn't so hot. The rooms are all finished very nicely, clearly a recent upgrade. But this doesn't make up for the unnerving feeling overall. It looks like part of the hotel might host regulars, living there which wasn't comfortable. Needless to say I would stay away from this one, even though the staff was very nice, VERY nice, the whole thing felt very makeshift, and the area was not what I thought it would be. Oh well.

"Cheap place, needs reapirs, but clean."
Very friendly and helpfull staff. This is a privately own hotel with agreement with HJ. The place is very old. Very very old carpetting. Far away from the town. Good and clean bed and linen. It was extremly cheapper than other hotels in Toronto and that was why we got it in first place. If you do not want to spend much money on your hotel and you are […] ok with an old clean place, you can stay here. The breakfast was good but it was in the lower level of the hotel (not a nice place). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not a good stay"
The hotel was in a run down area. I felt like my car might not be there in the morning. The room was not cleaned. There were no towels no soap or shampoo. The mirrors were dirty. The pillows had hair all over it. Was the closest hotel to Toronto zoo, next time I will drive the extra 10 minutes for a better night stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Spacious rooms,nice big flat screen TV,and room was very clean.Only drawback was they didn't had any drinking water in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
