3 out of 5

Tolerable for the price.

Pros: The staff was friendly and helpful.
Cons: Upgraded bathrooms. Toilets in the private rooms.
Location: Like I said, very close to transit.
The good: It's inexpensive, and very close to the train/bus station, which also has a currency exchange booth. It's a very short walk to the Sky Train station, and right on Main Street, with many connections to buses that go all over town. There is an elevator. The guys at the counter will lock up bags while you're out exploring. Nice view of the park from my fifth floor window. The bad: Internet only in the lobby. Also, the chair in my room smelled like pee, but the guy at the front desk had it changed quickly. The bathrooms really need upgrading. The stalls are very small, and the shower is see-through. Bring your own dishes if you plan to cook in. How about coffee or hot water for tea in the lobby?
