My wife and I were on our way out east and needed a place to crash in Cornwall. We certainly weren't looking to stay at The Ritz. But this place was sub-par for even a highway motel. We entered the main lobby and stood at the front desk for an awkward amount of time before the manager - who was...

If you are just on your way through Cornwall and need some sleep, fine. Hotel is pretty run down and needs to be renovated. Price is very reasonable. Breakfast is only very basic on paper plates, better go to Tim Hortons.

This place has bedbugs. I saw them and have the bites to prove it. Stay far away. The bathroom was mouldy, the carpets felt sticky, the lampshades had marks from bugs other guests must have killed. The walls are so thin you could hear your neighbours whispering.

You checked in late in the morning and were very concerned about check out timings at 11 am in the morning the same day,and requested to get extra time to stay -we tried to oblige you by granting your wishes but that is how you repay us for being nice to you ,by defaming us for the thing that is...

This hotel is in such a convenient location with some shops and restaurants close by and so handy from just going or coming across the border. However, I found the evening desk clerk could not tell me where some common restaurants were, but it was the condition of my room that really turned me off. The table lamp beside the...

I am a senior citizen Erny J. from St.Catharines who was with the group of fisherman mentioned in Rob H. review. The first night I arrived late in the evening and they did not have my reservation which was made months before, even though I gave them a confirmation number. The room was so hot I had to leave the...

We were looking to save a few bucks and try the Howard Johnson. We should have known better since when we first tried to get a room before dinner there was no one at the desk and I even tried to yell out for someone to hear and come check me into a room. After over 10 minutes we decided...

I am well aware of the ugly incident. At check in we were not aware that you will be charging all sorts of boat batteries which played havoc with our electrical system because of the over load on our circuit. We tried to fix the issue by offering you to plug in your boats at different outlets but you started...

After a long drive we ended up at the HoJo. The price sounded reasonable. We got a room at the backside of the complex, What a view! After opening the door it looked like there has been a flood in the room. The carpet was all stained and the airco didn't work at first attempt. After all it was reasonably...

My family stopped in after a 14 hour drive from PEI. It was late and it had a vacancy. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. The room was inexpensive and of the three motels I stayed in during the trip, this one had the most comfortable bed. The room was clean and we all slept well and what...

I do understand everyones review and they are all helpful but when I right a review I think it's important to note that this place is a 2 star and cheap for the area. What I hate is if a hotel is a 3 or 4 star so they say and you walk into a 1 star. For a 2...

Thank you ever so much for a very balanced assessment. We have noted all your recommendations, and have the following observations. You mentioned that the two doors in each room, might become an issue with the carpets. You are absolutely right, but the convenience of our guests is paramount; so we will keep cleaning and shampooing the carpets, and then...
