Billed as “Your home while away from home,” the complex offers three fully-furnished apartments for just $75 per night.
All bed linens, kitchen utensils, cable television, telephone, and parking are included.
Your stay at the Lions Manor also includes lunch and dinner for two people.
The building is close to downtown Winnipeg and is on a major bus route, with pharmacies, hospitals and commercial services nearby.
The manor provides a cozy lounge area, a computer area with Internet, a hair salon, library, shuffleboard, and a rooftop garden for your enjoyment.
The dining room is open from 5-6 p.m. and the coffee shop from 7:30 a.m-3 p.m.
