The title represents my first reaction. Loved the location, near the ROM and Gardiner and Yorkville. Room was large, clean enough and very comfortable for sleeping. Very quiet, facing away from the street. No view, other than a brick wall (good place for a mural of, I don`t know, maybe José Bautista. Bathroom was tiny. Room not very comfortable for hanging around during the day, just a table and two uncomfortable wooden chairs.
Included breakfast was, at best, average. Orange juice was kept cool with ice cubes and accordingly diluted. You could have every kind of cereal you wanted as long as it was cheerios or corn flakes. Danish pastries, muffins and croissants were fresh. Attendant was friendly, room really ugly.
Hotel really deserves
Zero point Zero

This is going to be fun. The first thing I want to address are all the "positive" reviews of this hotel. I mean one would have to be truly immune to reality in order to describe this place as "excellent". Really?? I truly believe the management themselves stay awake long hours penning these fatuous valentines to the world at large. Further, the way that management gives the same insipid apologies to dissatisfied paying customers on this site has clearly become a soul-destroying ritual for them. Now, let me describe this place. Upon entering the elevator you are dumbstruck by the latent human grease that is layered on all surfaces. There is an emergency telephone compartment in case of trouble, however when you open the door you are met with several live wires and dust. Hanging in brass is an engraved sign reading: VENDING MACHINES ON FIRST AND FOURTH FLOORS. Since my room was on the 8th floor I found that to be mildly convenient. Sadly, there are only vending machines on the 1st floor, but the sign does add a bit of mystery and atmosphere. The buttons on the elevator have worn off numbers which also adds to the sense of adventure. Journeying down the decaying hallway on the 8th floor, you are greeted with an admixture of torn drapes, broken radiator fixtures and peeling plaster walls. Upon entering the threshold of the room you encounter a dangerous metal lip about 2 inches high that can land you flat n your face if you are not lucky. The room has the temperature of a quality igloo, and never really warms up other than with the rays of the sun. The bathroom is sprinkled with an array of short curly hairs, and the shower is like being peed on by an elderly canine. Zero water pressure. Breakfast amounts to stale cardboard bread products served in what looks like an abandoned insane asylum. One large group table surrounded by mismatched plastic lawn chairs in a windowless room with a few people trying to choke down their putrid puddle-water coffee with the blasted out expressions of concentration camp survivors on their faces. All-in-all, there is one redeeming feature of the Yorkville Howard Johnsons: if I ever decide too kill myself, this is the first place I am going. Collapse

We had stayed there for one night. The hotel is old and there are much rooms for improvement, e.g. TV set & furnitures are outdated, carpets are old & filthy, etc. We could also hear the rooms next door taking their showers. However, the beds and bathroom were well cleaned. The staff were friendly and helpful. Collapse

Though it’s been a few months since I stayed here, I just happened to be reading some of the other reviews and am baffled by what people are expecting when they make a reservation at this hotel. So I felt compelled to put in my two bits. It’s about a third of the price of other hotels in the downtown area. Right there you should probably be aware this is not luxury accommodations. Some reviewers apparently don’t make this correlation. Yep, the hotel is a bit shabby compared to its four star neighbors that are charging 300 bucks a night. Not shocking. But the rooms are large and comfortable. Service is courteous and fast. The location is fantastic. How this bargain hotel exists in ritzy Yorkville is a mystery. But I’m glad it does. It makes trips to Toronto far more affordable if you don’t want to stay miles and miles from city centre. Only thing I found a little inconvenient was a shortage of hot water at certain times of day. But again — a hundred bucks a night in downtown Toronto. There are going to be a few downsides. I may well stay here again next time I go to T.O. It’s a bargain I am willing to make. Collapse
