"Great location, but a little worn and misleading"
Though we loved the location of the hotel, it was near the water and had a fantastic view in the restaurant, the room was worn and could have used a little updating. We were somewhat frustrated with the view. We paid extra for a view of the lake, but discovered that the "view" was only partial and looked more on a park than anything else. There are […] no rooms looking over the lake...... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Downtown hotel with a lake view"
Located in front of Lake Ontario. Eatery of all types just across the road. However this hotel is ideal only for those on holiday. Bussiness Traveler will find it inconvenience, there is way one can work in the room. The wireless Wifi is slower than snail crawl. I have to bring the laptop down to the lobby/ bar to surf the net and work on my email. […] Recepion at this area is good . Morning complimentary Breakfast is good.

Best salt water pool & hot tub in the area.. Nice location with activities all around the hotel. Pet friendly is a BIG PLUS ..... free parking with hotel registration.. Second time staying at the Waterfront.. I will be back.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is far from a 3 star rating. The paint on the ceiling in the bathroom was peeling and the room smelled like smoke. This hotel needs a renovaton.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location, but disappointing..."
Noisy room (wedding in the hotel,overlooking outside bar). Breakfast was substandard for food quality and presentation. No syrup for waffles. Your kitchen could have made a decent breakfast. One of the two elevators was broken and not fixed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall it was satisfactory. We asked about the birds that appeared to live in the overhead cover but the desk clerk didn't know and didn't seem at all curious. We also asked if the tv had closed captioning. We couldn't locate that option on the remote. The desk clerk said she was pretty sure it was available but did not follow up onit. We finally asked […] a guy in maintenance and he gave us a different remote for that feature. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Waling distance to everything we wanted to see."
Disappointed that there was a cover charge to get into the hotel bar after 9PM on Saturday - just wanted a drink at the bar.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to highlights of city a d the highway home!"
We lived the food, pool and the great surroundings! Staff was friendly an d helpful! Will recommend!mGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location. Rooms are clean and onsite restaurant is good and becomes a night club. Hotel can sure use some renovation but overall not bad. Certainly recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Waterfront walk, safe, lots of eateries"
We enjoyed our stay at the Waterfront Hotel. The check in was quick, so as weary travelers we appreciated that we were in the comfort of our clean room within a few minutes. Our show dog was a welcome guest and we thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her walking on the clean and beautiful Waterfront walkway. Such a peaceful setting we really enjoyed […] this no cost amenity that gave us the opportunity to exercise, get fresh air, and enjoy the waterfront area. AND the little shops around are great... some of the best food (pasteries and cupcakes in particular) were the best. Hotel restaurant was excellent and was a local favorite.

"Nice location but rooms are tired"
Rooms are "tired" and in need to refurbishing...bedding and pillows are sub-par for similar priced hotels. Nice location and workout room. Breakfast is nothing stellar but it comes with the room and it works for a quick bite.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Waterfront holel - Burlington Canada"
beautiful hotel, beautiful area and surroundings. Not too expansive. Goos service, except, that 4 people in the rooms for 3 days, we had to run after the cleaning lady for towels, coffee, etc. They didn't clean the room once or provide clean towels. That's the only thingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was clean and had a great night sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The young lady that checked us in was wonderful as well as the staff in the restaurant. Room was great & clean, only comment is that ice machines were OFS on most floors, eg. 4, 5, 6. I had expected a fridge but perhaps I had confused the amenities offered w another hotel I looked at. I would certainly recommend the Waterfront and wish I had the time […] to enjoy the pool & setting Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to dinner reservations"
Our stay was good. Friendly staff, like the on-site restaurant and close to some shopping and good night life. I do feel that if you are a guest of the hotel you should be allowed access to the on site restaurant without a cover charge. I feel I have paid the cover charge in the price of my over night stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would be happy to recommend"
very pleased. Staff were friendly and immediately accommodated our request to be on a lower level. Restaurant food was very goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location but..."
Well located, clean, comfortable bed and staff friendly. Went out for dinner, and back to the hotel for nightcap in hotel, Beaver & Bulldog pub. The lobby entrance was locked so told to go outside and use the main entrance.At main entrance we're told that my wife can enter free but I had to pay a $5 cover! Went back in the hotel and told the reception […] desk who agreed it's silly and talked to the pub manager - still had to pay cover. It was Friday but the bar 1/3 full. Decided to call room service only to learn that it shut down at 10pm on Fridays/Saturdays, other days it's 11pm! Morning buffet breakfast at the Beaver & Bulldog. Sitting, we listened to the staff and management complaining about other staff not present. The buffet breakfast; I'm not sure they could have put less effort into it. No fruit, watery apple juice, and the cheese omelette was an egg-like disk folded over a slice of process cheese, odd looking sausage rounds and over cooked sausages. Coffee was ok and there was yogurt. Muffins/danish were alright but weren't fresh that day. Service was non-exsistant. No one stopped to see if everything was ok or refill coffee. All served on paper plates and cheap plastic cutlery.The hotel would be better served not offering that as an included breakfast. Summary; great location, clean hotel, helpful staff, comfortable rooms. That's it, room service shuts down early and the bar/restaurant is a big negative. I would think twice about rebooking.

Lovely park next door for walking dogs. Hotel needs some work to update the hallways. Hotel has raised the extra price for the pet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I found that the air conditioner wasn't working properly. It was very warm for sleeping. Also compliment to the restaurant, food was very good and service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful and clean"
Welcomed by friendly staff. Our room was clean and spacious. We used the pool that has a nice view looking over the park and lake.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The location was perfect for our son's wedding."
The waterfront is beautiful and this hotel is right on the water. Location for old downtown Burlington is great. The staff were friendly, we were not informed the 1st morning, that breakfast was included. Too bad! We stayed in room 520 and the wallpaper was falling off, tub and tiled floor cracked. Definitely needs refurbishing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth the stay"
The hotel room is noisy and the air conditioning is old fashion. Need lots of upkeep but the hotel room cost is expensive compare to the condition. Not good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location Location Location"
You pay for the lake and walkway access here. Our tub did not drain when showering. The curtains on the window were too small and did not close. Consequently we were awake when the sun came up. The ice machine was broken on our floor. Air conditioning barely cooled the room even at highest setting. The free breakfast was okay--more fresh fruit would […] be a healthy option. Restaurant at night was out of a few of the featured menu items. Whirlpool next to the pool was out of order. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"July 2013 Stay"
Very good location but this is a tired property in need of a renovation.Genuine Expedia guest review
Staff were helpful on my arrival. I had a room by the elevator and requested that they move me to a more quiet area. They had no problem with this and accommodated my request. I had a king suite which was also nice. You can't beat the location. Beautiful waterfront and amazing restaurants up on Brant Street. I didn't have a car; everything is within […] a 10-minute walk. Nice neighbourhood to stroll through. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Looks good online, good location but needs a reno"
Given its location the hotel should be in much better condition. We had to walk upstairs as the elevators were not working but no compensation was offered for that inconvenience. Very small windows for a hotel with a huge water view. Bathtub took an hour to drain. Overall a third rate operation.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was just ok. One elevator was broken, the hot tub was broken and several other little things need fixing. The free breakfast was horrible and served on paper plates. How very un-earthy!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel, worth visiting"
Lovely hotel, great location, staff accomodating, property well maintained. One issue outside the hotel's control but we would like to have noted ....smoking on patio was very disturbing, NOT something we are used to. The regulations/ law NEEDS to be changed!! We were shocked that this is allowed in Ontario! Unbelivable in 2013!!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"AMAZING VIEW AND GREAT FOOD!"
I found my stay at the hotel very enjoyable. The view is spectacular. It was so peaceful and enjoyable walking down the pier. I was truly impressed with the food at the restaurant. My husband has celiac disease and he was able to after more than 5 years eat a gluten free chicken club sandwich and sitting and eating at the restaurant with that spectacular […] view was unbelievable. it was a truly relaxing and renewing experience and it is not too far from home.

"close to shopping & services"
very good locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
pleasant,no surprises,which if you travel a lot is good.Genuine Expedia guest review
My only problem was I requested a view of the lake at the Waterfront Hotel and we had a view of the heating/cooling system on the roof. I suppose I should have called to make sure.Staff fudged at the desk on check-in: "We don't actually face the lake, but the lake is on the side." True, but some side views are much better than others. We had the worst […] possible. Breakfast was lovely on the hotel deck -- view of the lake. Delicious, gorgeous day, gorgeous view.

"rooms need improvement"
We stayed for two nights. Thursday 13 and Friday 14 of June. Unbeknownst to us, the sound of music festival was ongoing next door, it was not too bad but we did not go to bed until 1130 pm both nights. Our room located on the second floor, city view, was small and had a king size bed. the bed was decent, clean and sufficient for what we needed. Iron […] did not work and we had a replacement within a few minutes. The staff was courteous. Only complaint was that the A/C unit in the room was very noisy, so much so that we both had to wear earplugs to sleep. All in all not bad. I would give it a 2.5/5 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Waterfront hotel Burlington Ontario"
The location on the lake is beautiful. It is close to many restaurants, walking and biking areas and shopping.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Positive Experience!"
Overall, a good hotel with little to complain about. Friendly and quick service in the restaurant. The hotel probably needs a little updating as it looks as if the owners haven't spent much cosmitically. Comfortable beds and nice location on the water.Genuine Expedia guest review
Needs an update, rooms on lower east are too close to the bar terrace and are very noisy late into the night. Try to get something above the 4th floor. $10 cover charge to get into hotel bar! Ridiculous! It's also a middle age pickup bar, so you can imagine the crowd. Overall the location is excellent, the staff was competent and I would stay here again, […] but would be wary of the rooms above the bar terrace. Breakfast was terrible. Everybody was asking the girl who worked in the dining room. "What is this?"turns out it was sausage, that looked like a home fry! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Beds and pillows where very comfortable and the room was very clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A disappointing hotel for its location and price"
The location and entrance to the hotel is nice, albeit a small reception desk for booking in. The room itself was very small (Superior room) for a North American hotel, the wall was scratched and damaged. There was one small window that looked out but it wasn't clean. I have stayed in better hotels for the same or less money.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location. PET FRIENDLY"
Great location. PET FRIENDLY but too much money for the condition of the hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great, friendly and helpful staff...rooms were just okay, nothing too special, but comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
There for the half marathon! Excellent time and service. Breakfast was okay, need better coffeeGenuine Expedia guest review
"A Comfortable Stay"
It is easy to get to if you are not from the area. It is quiet and very comfortable, even tho there is a bar downstairs. The breakfast included is a very nice surprise. We have stayed at this hotel I would say three times now and being seven hours away, it has always been my choice to stay at the Waterfront in Burlington. The parking is ideal too, it […] suits us as well. We will be in the area again sometime this spring and we will be staying at the Waterfront again. It is a great pool and gym as well. Thanks for being who you are!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I thought the room was clean and staff were friendly. There were no towels in the gym, and the television in the gym had poor reception. The hotel was full of teenage girls (I assume for a tournament) who were very loud until 11pm. There was a lot of noise after 11pm as well. It sounded like an adult party and the sound came through the fan in the […] bathroom. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Friendly staff get you into your room quick. Nice facilities and great view of the lake from your room. Great location if you wanna see what downtown has to offer and a awesome walkway along the lake just to the right of the hotel!Genuine Expedia guest review
"I expected better."
We had to ask for another room due to the fact that ours stunk of smoke. Our second room was far better. I can't say that our stay was terrible but I did expect far better room conditions for the price I paid. I would recommend the hotel for a convenient place to stay but not for a romantic getaway.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice hotel, but views of lake not as fantastic as made out in advertising.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"1st time in Burlington"
Elevators could be upgraded kinda scarey the sounds it made and we could hear them in our room. Breakfast buffet was ok, would have liked to see some fruit on it, the food hotter, and maybe some names on the food. We thought one thing was potatoes/hashbrown but it was sausage we think. Couldn't use the pool as it was closed for maintence. Location good […] close to a lot of things and easy to get too. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pictures online need updating"
The carpets were old and soiled, the bed felt like a rock, the staff was not able to answer questions or fix issues.
