Stayed here for a kids hockey tournament. Was clean and breakfast was good. Not a bad place. Was just a far drive to cobourgh. Security was very good considering kids were running around like animals.

There was no one at the front desk to greet us. After awhile, someone came out, put up a sign saying they would be back and left. There was no 24hour decaf coffee in the lobby. Finally, they came back and checked us in. Our room was fine, the usual HIE room. We walked to dinner at Kelsey's across the...

We stayed here while in Canada on business in Oshawa. Nice clean rooms. Hotel is nice & clean. Front desk attendants were friendly & helpful. Breakfast was good. I had egg omelets & sausage.
