OMG ... where do I start? The complex looks 'iffy' when you pull in, but we've had such great experiences with 'iffy' places that we just paid without checking it out. MISTAKE!!!!! We are driving across Canada, and economy comes into play when you have that many nights on the road so we've learned to trust TripAdvisor commentators. Neither of...

Upon arriving seemed typical for a drive in motel. The staff pleasant and accommodating. Room was very fragrant and not of bleach or cleaning products. Needs renovation desperately. The decor not really the issue. Cleanliness is key. The furniture stained floors filthy especially in corners. Paint peeling. In a nutshell wouldn't go back. Along the way 2 other motels that...

This is the most extreme case of a budget hotel I can think of. The place is in an extreme need of a renovation. You do get a little kitchen unit in the room, and the beds were not that bad, but wow - everything else really really needs to be updated. Some of you will walk in and walk...

We were vacationing in Sept. of 2014, and did not make reservations in St. John because it looked big enough to have plenty of options as far as hotels. Just our luck, we arrived at 9:30p.m. only to be turned away from every hotel we went to. They were having not 1 but 2 conventions in town and every hotel...

This motel was extremely clean, the beds were as good as you'd find anywhere, and it had everything we needed in the little kitchenette. Comfortable, roomy and comfy. Next door to a lovely garden. The view of the bay was lovely, though that was from outside rather than from the room. For a basic place to stay, this was exactly...

This old motel is cheap and that's about all. It doesn't look like it's been renovated or updated since the 1950's. The bed is old but appears to be clean. The room is musty and there are several areas that look like mold is starting to grow. When I walked into the bathroom, I saw a large black spider in...

Stayed here one night early in September. This 1950's style motel was neat and tidy on the outside and clean on the inside. There were good beds, a small table and chairs and lots of space to exercise and move around. The full kitchen was clean and well equiped and a delight after spending a month eating in restaurants. There...

First of all let me say...THERE IS NO AIR CONDITIONING IN THE ROOM! We stayed in August, not even thinking to ask upon check-in if there was one because I mean, WHAT KIND OF HOTEL DOESN'T HAVE ANY A/C?! No fans either! It was stuffy in the room with both available windows open, even though it was cool outside. Couldn't...

Believe the bad reviews! This motel is not worth it. They will want your money and you are not worth it as their customer. I am a frequent traveler and this is the only place where Reception has given me a room (and a warning not to use the second bed). I initially asked for a quiet room but eventually...

We got off to a bad start when they charged me $5 more than the rate quoted when I made the reservation by phone. The room had a foul odor to it. There were mold and mildew in the bathroom and around the windows. When we pulled back the covers on the bed we found black hairs on the sheets....
