When I checked in I asked to be put in a quiet room. They put me right next to an elevator 420 (I didn’t even bother go in) I had to go back downstairs to ask for another room. They put me in a room right next door that smelled musty and mouldy 419. I had to go back downstairs again and they put me in 508. The tv didn’t work and asked for someone to come fix it. After 20mins I canceled and just used my laptop. The sink was filled with water for some reason. They had to portable fans in the room which were both covered in dust. I have a picture of all these things. The hotel is clearly struggling with mould and I wouldn’t suggest this hotel to anyone. I’m surprised Expedia even allows this hotel on their site. Very disappointed

Great location in downtown core. Rooms have been renovated with modern clean bathroom. There is a mini-fridge and Keurig coffee machine but no microwave, also a safe, parking included a short walk away. A real bargain for the cost.
