This hotel may accept Dogs but they shouldn't. The Staff was terrified of my dogs. There was no garbage can to put their pooh bags in, and they stuck us in a 2nd floor room with no elevator, which was tough because their toilet is outside and going up and down those stairs over and over again was exhausting.

The shower curtain was all moldy and the air conditioner leaked and made a large portion of the carpet wet. Very happy they allow pets and the staff are nice! Needs some updating but worth the price.

With three of us this was desireable. However, after checking in we were told that they haven't had free breakfasts in years. When I showed my Expedia confirmation which... More

Booked this hotel for a 1 night stay for an event in Sarnia the next day. We arrived before check in time and were greeted and given our rooms. We were told that we were the only 2 rooms checking in for the day, so the hotel was relatively empty. This hotel is pretty old, and requires actual physical keys... More
