Surprisingly impressive! I visit my adult son who lives in Oshawa. I always try to book a room with a pull-out sofa (for him). I have stayed at at least 6 Oshawa/Whitby area hotels and THIS property overall, beats all the rest!
Very nice staff. Helpful and attentive. The lobby is nice with the breakfast room off to the side. Vending machines work and have a nice variety. The room is huge! Microwave, fridge, bar sink. Sfa bed and chair. Dining table w/ 4 chairs. Great window view. Then the bedroom is closed with two curtained doors. Tv in both areas. The king size bed was comfortable! I am used to the Hilton line of great bedding and this was only a slight step down! Oh, I AM a smoker and I am very cognizant of smelly rooms. I travel with candels and air freshner. I also insist on a room with windows that open fr ventalation. This room did NOT smell stale or smoke-laden. Great size bathroom with the nice bath amenities. Towels bright white and semi-fluffy. The in-room coffee supply was generous over the course of my 4 day stay due to leave a note for the housekeeper each day asking for triple coffee and condiments. The room was clean as a whistle. The property is also pretty.
Access to the 401 is close as well as shopping and some good restaurants. J.B's Mongolian Grill ( yes the exact same chain that we have in Columbus, Cincinnati areas!) is in the Whitby Entertainment Centrum off of Thickson Rd on Consumers Dr. There is also a Starbucks both about 1 mile from the hotel.
Draw backs? Windy road back a ways to the hotel. Nothing within walking distance. Faces the 401, although room was not noisy. No swimming pool. There is a great court yard where one should have been placed. It's a shame because I think this could be a 4 star hotel with a pool and a restaurant, or at least an eatery next door.
