This motel is in dire need of renovations. The outside appearance is downright depressing. Some "new" features have been added - new towel racks, for example - without replacing the old peeling wallpaper or chipped paint. The doors are chipped or scratched. We did not even dare to put our clothes in the dresser. It was passable for one night,...

The woman who answered the phone was rude and difficult to communicate with. I had a booking and was calling to cancel because of illness in family trip cancelled and reschedule for the following weekend.. She gave me so much grief I would never consider booking this hotel again.

Small motel down in the heart of old North Bay. Was clean and staff friendly and helpful. Recommended a great place for a late supper and was within walking distance. Basic breakfast. Definitely would stay again.

It's in what looks to be a dicey part of town. Pull in off the street and the hotel itself doesn't look bad. The rooms were clean and quiet. We've stayed in more expensive places that were not as nice. For the price we paid we'd stay again. Check in and Check out were fast...bonus.

The beds were very comfortable! The Continental Breakfast sucked as they had stale muffins, bagels, crossiants and bread. I would deffinately tell people about this establishment, and how comfy the beds were. There deffinately needs to be more parking as there simply is not enough parking for the room ratio.

We booked three rooms in advance. Checked in at 3pm only to discover two hours later that we didn't need the rooms any more. We hadn't even gone INTO the rooms, so nothing was disturbed. The staff/owners would NOT refund our money because we missed the cancellation time (4pm) by one hour, even though the motel was only half full...
