Thank you for taking the time to review the Catalina Motel. We are pleased to hear you found the room clean and are sorry it did not meet your expectations in other areas. Most of our rooms have a walk in shower so this might be more to your taste for the future, just simply request when booking. We appreciate the feedback will take on board your comments for future refurbishments. Kind regards, Brendan

Everything I expected was available, except that it is away from the shops, but that makes for a nice quiet stay.

Reasonably well located off from a busy street and a short drive from center of Toronto. Problem was noise within the motel between walls and from other patrons. Could hear my next door neighbor snoring and coughing through the walls through the night. Not pleasant. On the upside - the staff were attentive, responsive and good to deal with.

Sorry for the delay in replying, we are assuming you may have been in a room that interconnects and we have since purchased some sound deadening high density foam that is now in place between the doors. We value all feedback and hope you will stay with us again.
