Front desk was helpful and friendly and checked us in very quickly. The price is actually pretty affordable since I'm a pretty frugal type of person. It's a good enough place to stay for the traveler on a budget! I love that there was free wifi as I know some hotels charge for wifi and internet usage and only offer... More

I should have paid attention to the reviews, but I was attracted to the cheap rates. I guess you get what you pay for. My room was on the second floor. Though it was cold out, a couple of guests had their doors open. From the looks of them, it appeared this was their home. When I got in the... More

Walked in the room and it smelled like an ashtray. I was told by an employee the owner turns off the heat to save money, it was 12 degrees celcius in the room. The night staff who live there are lazy. The internet wasn't working and they complained that they had to unplug the modem once every few hours. The... More

Bed where nice and clean the floors and trim could use some dusting and the a/c unit needs overhaul for sure. They have nice bbbq also outside for guest to use. We made great use of it... More

I think maybe people confuse extremely (extremely) dated, with dirty. I found the room clean enough, I wouldn't eat off the carpet, but I wouldn't eat off the carpet anywhere! We stayed here for a night away from the kids after dinner at the Chipican Restaurant (best steak, rivals anywhere!) and a walk in Canatara Park. You get what you... More

We stayed there to be close to the bridge and downtown. All those places where we wanted to go were nearby. Next door restaurant food was good. Park in front of the motel is nice for walk & picnic and we enjoyed our weekend stay there. Room was a decent size with two double beds and of course a bathroom... More

The office person was very nice as he took my money for the room, of course. Opened the door to an overwhelming stench of old furniture,cigarettes and dirt. The room was decorated with roadside furniture. There was putty filler clumped on the ceiling,stains running down the walls and the carpeting was worn off, We did not remove our shoes. The... More

I consider myself lucky for not worrying about the bad reviews on this motel. Last week before crossing the bridge I just wanted to have a night rest with the lowest price in any hotel near the bridge, so I took my chances and stayed at this motel. Surprisingly the room was better than my expectations, bathroom was clean, staff... More

For the price of $ 55.00 Cnd you could not go wrong. The price reflected the cleanliness and noise. It did not matter that the rooms were outdated but the amount of "dust bunnies" in the sleeping area and dirt in the bathroom could not be overlooked. I did not have a shower due to the bathtub and bathroom surroundings... More
