Travelodge Belleville

I don’t want to give you the wrong impression about me, but when a hotel doesn’t have a hotel bar, there’s just something wrong. Fun fact: Travelodge Belleville used to be in the 1970s a Four Seasons Inn on the Park. My mother and father would take us to dinner there for their wedding anniversary.

In fact, I’m not convinced the current Travelodge is up to even its own brand standards. The bathrooms are always the tell. There were some rough edges around […]

Red Rock Canyon Restaurant

After a solemn occasion at a nearby Belleville graveyard, it helps if people can share experiences and dine in a group.

I have to say that I’ve turned into a fuss budget because micro breweries are so prevalent that I now come to expect […]

We had our GPS set for Front Street and she was thwarted by the street being closed. Once we parked on Pinnacle Street we had trouble finding our restaurant and had a scenic walk of the construction around the old city hall building, which is truly evocative of the times around the confederation of Canada. There’s a market, which was not open […]
