It's not a bad hotel. I've stayed there in the past (prior to my years as a 'john') and it's comfortable. It is sp friendly since i know a few hobbyists who've stayed there and liked it (for the price).
Very true. Hard to get good deals on both Hotwire & Priceline. Possibly due to the high Canadian dollar as compared to the US dollar. I honestly don't remember the last time the Canadian dollar has been so high!
