Excellent rate and not a bad spot either!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 5, 2007

Arrangements had been made for all guests of the August, 2007 wedding Sue and I attended to stay at the Howard Johnson motel in the suburb of Markham, located about 30-minutes drive directly north of the downtown core of Toronto. We were all located on the ground floor level and occupying several of the rooms on both sides of the corridor at the end of the motel closest to you in this photo.

Check-in was efficient, staff were friendly, housekeeping and room service both worked very well. The basic room rate (for two) was C$79 but ended up at C$90 (US$85) after various taxes were added on.

Unique Quality: Our room had a very comfortable Queen-sized bed, nice TV, good air-conditioning, mini-refrigerator and was very quiet. The motel itself is located close to where the 404 and 407 highways intersect but, because it is in an area of suburb office towers we had no outside noise problems at all. The following are featured on the motel's website:

"Larry & Frankies family restaurant & lounge is open Monday to Friday from 6am - 2am, and weekends from 7am - 2am or enjoy the convenience of room service. With an extensive selection of continental cuisine they're sure to satisfy your every craving! Our fitness and recreation center is open daily from 6am - 11pm. Come play in our large indoor pool, relax in the sauna or whirlpool, or simply sit back and enjoy a good book on the pool deck. Enjoy the conveniences of your home away from home such as in-room refrigerator, coffee maker, iron/ironing board, hairdryer, and free local calls & high speed Internet access. We also offer coin laundry, valet dry cleaning, 24 hour business centre and free parking."

Sue and I enjoyed a glass of wine and beer in their Larry & Frankies restaurant upon arrival after our 1400-km two-day drive from Fredericton (we broke it up with a stop in Drummondville, Quebec because my 82-year old mother was travelling with us). Later, I was impressed by their excellent breakfast at a reasonable rate.

Directions: Take exit 27 off the Don Valley Parkway (Highway 404) then the first right off Highway 7 (heading East), followed by another right off Highway 7 and then continue to drive a short distance around the next corner
