Drove in and out of the parking lot 3 times, was not convinced from the pictures or the star rating that i was at the right place. This place was under renovation, un organized renovation. This job was a total mess. The place should be shutdown until renos are complete. It reminded me of an old abandoned hotel I assumed... More

Booked this for two nights, the hotel is being renovated, not very clean, no amenities. Breakfast was basic, and there were no heaters under the hot foods, so they were cold. The beds were old and uncomfortable, and there was no lobby. You entered into the hotel via a side door and followed some signs to a small office to... More

The hotel is under construction. So it's confusing to navigate and looks run down. But the beds are comfy, the staff is great, and they still have breakfast for their guests. Not the best but good enough. Free wifi too

Let's start with the ugly...the hotel is under major construction so it is not an attractive site, but in all fairness the renovations are very much overdue and there really is no pretty way to do the job. The rooms are pretty ugly too, and smell old, but by the looks of the design boards in the lobby I am... More

This has to be the worst hotel I've stayed at in over 40 years of travel in Canada. It reminds me of hotels I stayed at in India and Bangladesh in the late '70s, only it's worse. The hotel is basically a big construction site. There are no facilities here. The "lobby" is a tiny desk in a hall. There... More

Let me begin to say the original hotel was the Holiday Inn then changed to Quality Inn and now its final name Durham Hotel. An experience I have never seen before in all my travels around the world....the only thing that was right was the ADDRESS I inputted in my GPS...the hotel as you drive up was under renovations.

I booked it via their Web site which showed nice rooms, nice hotel, a lobby with a nice bar. The place is a dump. It is being gutted and being renovated. Outside walls are stripped, dirty hallways from workers walking around, no lobby just a dirty room they converted to a registration desk, no bar, fitness club and the pool... More

Stayed here due to a hockey tournament booking. Drove up and immediately realized I'd stayed here before...a year or so previously. Hotel looked to be at about the same level of (de)construction only now even less functional. Pool was closed. Hotel lobby now moved to a hallway and the restaurant closed. Hotel had just seemed to change ownership yet all... More
