Sharing a double can bring the price down to quite a reasonable level.
Also, some places permit couples and these doubles are fair value. For
information contact YMCA Canada ('If 416-967-9622), 42 Charles St E, 6th
Floor, Toronto, Ontario M4Y IT4. A printed sheet on the country's Ys offering
accommodation will be mailed out but the information is always outdated.
Universities Many Canadian universities rent out beds in their residence
dormitories during the summer months. The 'season' runs approximately
from May to sometime in August with possible closures for such things
as large academic conferences. Prices average $30 a day and, at many 'places,
students are offered a further reduction. Campus residences are open to
all including families and seniors.
Facts for the Visitor - Accommodation Reservations are accepted but aren't
necessary. Breakfasts are sometimes included in the price but if not,
there is generality a cafeteria which offers low-priced meals. The other
campus facilities, such as the swimming pool, are sometimes available
to guests. Directories of the various residences are sometimes published
and may be available on the campus through the residence manager, the
alumni association or general information. Campus accommodation is listed
in the text under hostels. This form of budget accommodation seems to
be somewhat unknown in Canada and at most places finding a room even in
peak season should not be a problem.
Efficiency Units Efficiencies are also called housekeeping units or serviced
apartments and are rooms with cooking facilities and light housekeeping.
This type of room is often geared to business clients but can be especially
helpful for travelling families. Efficiencies are usually found at motels
where some of the rooms have been converted or enlarged for this purpose
and for which the owners can ask a few more dollars. A few guesthouse
or B&BS have a room or two with cooking facilities. Some hotels also
offer such rooms’ usually calling those suites, although this broad term
may not mean there is a kitchen. In the country's larger cities some apartment
complexes have also been set up to offer this type of lodging. Again,
these suites are primarily aimed at the business traveler or those in
town for a week or longer. Guesthouses & Tourist Homes Another alternative
is the simple guesthouse or tourist home.
