Disappointed for the cost

Timmins, Canada

Room was okay but very small for $200.00 a night and parking is $35 a night. Front reception was very nice Gym had good equipment and swimming pool was large. Swimming pool area had a lot of areas that had not been cleaned and maintained for quite a while and was quite dirty and unhealthy. Great location Foerm$235.00 a night I would at alternate hotels close by that are more modern and likely have a more spacious room for the price

Best value in Ottawa


The value cannot be beat. The hotel is very nice and the rooms are more than adequate. Service is top notch. The location is awsome. At the begining of Elgin close to all the restaurants and close to the lower town.
