Entering Canada from the United States wasn’t difficult at all since Korean passport holders don’t need visas to stay in Canada for six months.
We stayed at the Courtyard (Marriott’s budget hotel) for just $60. The room with two queen bed was huge, almost as big as our two-bedroom apartment in Korea. When I saw the price of the bottled water, I was totally shocked. Hotel items are expensive (I worked at a hotel before) but $4.50 is too much.
We had dinner at the Riverview (or was it Riverside?) International Buffet. It was $15.95 per person but it was the most awful buffet I’ve had. There were only a few choices. One woman asked if there were more pizzas but the crew told her to wait for 25 minutes! There were no forks and the food? Bland! It was an experience that made my sister and I laughed on our way out and we joked about the next day.
The following morning, we thought about eating breakfast at Denny’s, just right across the hotel. Their big breakfast? About $15 – so we just left and had breakfast at the hotel. It was cheaper.
