Castlegate was GREAT!
Stayed at the Castlegate Inn for four nights while in Toronto. This place was great. The price was right, and so was the location. Great alternative to the high-priced hotels nearby! - User Review

Great bang for your buck
My experience of castlegate inn was great. Right on the subway line, close to cool shops and restuarants on Bloor street, safe walkable area at night, clean rooms, friendly staff... and cheap, cheap, cheap! Breakfast was simple, but certainly edible in a sweet breakfast room that was tastefully decorated.

Not quite a B&B, but definitely not a hotel, Castlegate reminded me of the pensiones of italy... cute and reasonably priced.

(btw, if you get a chance, try the raw food bar down the street - I think it was called "LIVE" - very tasty)

A good find...
We found the Castlegate Inn in a real pinch, when we were looking for the cheapest room possible. (On our drive in to Toronto, we ran over a car hood that pierced our gas tank... We had to stay an extra 2 nights, so we were on quite a budget). This was the cheapest place we could find, in an area that seemed reasonably close and had good transportation.

It turned out to be a pretty good find. The place, at the time, seemed brand new. Their rates don't seem to have gone up any, since

As far as this being a "bed and breakfast" ... I would say its somewhere in the middle of being a bed and breakfast and a hotel. If you're looking for a cozy house where everyone shares a common space, but you have a room, this is not the place. If you're looking for a place that has hallways with room numbers, and no real common space, this is it. In the morning, there is a breakfast room. Also, many (if not all?) of the rooms have nice private balconies...

the B&B itself was clean... The area is quiet. The people were nice. There was a refridgerator and microwave in room. There is a subway station a block away. A major tourist attraction (Casa Loma) is 3 blocks north. And most importantly, the price was right.

More than what you paid for :)
I stayed at Castlegate Inn while in Toronto for a conference. My needs were simple; a quiet place to stay, a clean, comfortable room and easy access to the city. As it was so reasonably priced, I expected little else.

But I found the staff (Amy and Lolita) to be kind and helpful, going out of their way to meet my needs, the establishment very clean and tastefully decorated, and the proximity to the subway line was absolutely marvelous! The room even had a fridge and microwave, so I had the option of making or bringing food into my room.

On my last day in Toronto, I had a few free hours to look around. A big tourist attraction, Casa Loma, was right down the street, and the staff advised me to take a short walk down to the Bloor area and the University of Toronto campus -- good advise.

Thanks to everyone at Castlegate Inn. Should I return to Toronto, I would definitely stay there again.

"Toronto's Best B&B"
In my travels I have been to many hotels and B&B's. This was by far one of the best places I've stayed. The located was close to downtown and the subway which made it easy to get around without having to rent a car. Thanks Castlegate!!!

Great Location, Great Bargain!
Castlegate Inn is a terrific find--located in the lovely and charming Annex neighborhood of Toronto, its price can't be beat, particularly considering its convenient proximity to the University of Toronto and many tourist attractions (Casa Loma Inn, Bata Shoe Museum, etc.)

Staying at the Inn (which I think is actually three or four Victorian-style houses converted within into apartment-type units, all along Spadina Road) is actually more akin to living in an apartment than staying in a "traditional" hotel. My room was generously sized and clean, with private bathroom, cable TV and telephone. (My only complaint: no reading light next to the bed).

The room also contained a mini-kitchen containing a sink, microwave, coffee maker and dishes; there are a couple of grocery stores within walking distance, which easily made up for any lack of room service or on-premises restaurants (and helped save money).

The subway is within easy walking distance, which is great.

And the staff couldn't have been nicer, friendlier or more helpful. I enjoyed my stay immensely and would definitely visit again.
