Canada Tourist Visa or PR visa holders should know about Canada's culture
Geo-Political atmosphere to understand the country better.
Canadian liquor laws have historically been linked to renting beds,
so the older, cheap hotels are often principally bars, and quite often
low-class bars at that. Examples are found in number all over the country.
For the impecunious, who don't mind some noise and a somewhat worn room;
these hotels can come in handy. Prices usually range from $25 to $35 a
single, but rooms are often taken by more permanent guests on a monthly
basis. There are some places in this category which are fine and which
are mentioned in this book. They are not suitable for families or females
travelling alone but couples and single males may find these basic hotels
adequate, at least on occasion. Between the new and the old hotels, there
are places to be found in between. In some of the larger cities, in particular,
you can still find good older, small hotels which mainly rent rooms. Prices
vary with the amenities and location and range from about $35 to $75 for
singles or doubles.
Motels In Canada, like the USA (both lands of the automobile), motels
are ubiquitous. Mostly they are simple and clean, if somewhat nondescript.
Many can be found dotting the highways and clustered in groups on the
outskirts of larger towns and cities. They are usually range from $40
to $75 for singles or doubles. Outside the cities motel prices drop so
they can be a bargain, especially if there are two or more of you. Before
entering a large city it's a good idea to get off the main route and onto
one of the secondary roads. This is where you'll find motels as cheaply
as they come.
The less-travelled parts of the country tend to have lower prices, too.
Prices tend to go up in summer or when a special event is on. Off-season
bargaining is definitely worthwhile and acceptable. This need not be haggling
as in a Moroccan market; just a simple counter- /} Facts for the Visitor
- Food 85 offer will sometimes work. Unlike better hotels, many motels
remain 'mom and pop' operations and so retain more flexibility and often
reflect more of the character of the owners. The Choice motel/hotel chain
- seen from coast to coast - includes the Comfort Inn (tr 1-800-228-5150)
and Economy lines. They are moderately priced, not the cheapest, not the
most expensive but always reliable and good value. The rooms are plain
and simple but spotless and always well maintained. The benefit of the
chain system is that it allows for reserving a room anywhere through toll-free
telephone numbers. Other links in the chain include Quality (tr 1-800-228-5151)
and the low-cost Roadway (tr 1-800-228-2000) inns. Another oft-seen, quality
chain is Super 8 Motels ('fr 1-800-800-8000). Some motels offer 'suites'.
This usually means there is a separate second bedroom (good for those
with children) but may mean there is a sitting room with TV and chesterfield
set apart from the bedroom.
