Good 6.0
A bit Noisy
Unfortunately, our room was near the neighboring Office Works roller door, so they start early every day of the week so we were woken up every day, we have stayed here before and other blocks of rooms were great, next time we would not stay in this block of rooms.

Very good 8.0
The hotel was good for the price the only downfall is that the rooms are not very soundproof therefore very dependant on the other residents for a night of good sleep.

Very good 8.0
Clean apartments in an excellent location with onsite parking and guest laundry services (always a winner). Only issue was less than average WiFi connectivity.

Poor 2.0
Only care about money, not you or customer service
We booked two rooms but were put on two ends of the property, so we asked for two adjacent room. Their response: you have to pay extra. There were two small twin beds in my room and I wanted to merge them to create a bigger and hopefully more comfortable bed, but was told they'll be charging me extra if I do that. We are here for 4 days total and when we brought the used towels to exchange for new got it, "you have to pay extra!" If you lose the key, they charge you 250 dollars. If you want good customer service...yep, you have to pay extra! On top of all these, the rooms are dirty and the AC barely works! But if you want either of them fixed, got to pay extra!
