Not the usual canadian welcome we are used to! Very off hand at reception when we enquired about a kettle. This was shown on Booking.com but apparently not available. Not sure that rooms were cleaned apart from duvet being thrown over! Breakfasts, the minimum was offered. Washing machine, the washing came out dirtier than it went in! We felt the...

The staff was friendly and helpful.Wanted to make sure we were satisfied. The room was spacious and very clean, had a large comfortable bed with a duvet. The kitchenette was well equipped. The room was quiet even though it was close to a main thoroughfare.

We needed a place to stay while attending a Family Reunion. The pictures and price looked good when we googled it but upon arrival the girl at the front desk was not very friendly or helpful. The rooms certainly needed updating, there was no fridge or hair dryer. You could ask at the front desk for a hair dryer (this...

This hotel is clean but thread worn. The room was small and the patio was one foot from the driveway into the hotel. The breakfast was extremely limited in choice and not overly satisfying. The staff was not overly friendly although they were not particularly unfriendly, more like unconcerned.

We had stayed here last year and enjoyed our stay. This time was completely different. The lady at the desk was hardly friendly(not the same lady from last year who was extremely friendly). The room was clean, but the fridge had no door on it and the sink in the kitchenette had no water. It was the noisiest room I...

We had to make a quick trip to do some house hunting in the middle of peak season so happy to find this available. Rooms are a bit dated but whole place is kept very clean & that is the most important thing for me. Breakfast was basic but adequate & always a nice addition.

We stayed here before and we were quite pleased but this trip we were given room 108 which I believe is the last one they rent out, although we had booked ahead. There was no bathtub which normally wouldn't bother me, but there was a shower stall that had literally nowhere to put down soap or shampoo, etc unless you...

The young lady at the front desk was very polite and friendly. We requested a room change and they were very accommodating. The rooms were clean and bright. It is next door to a great restaurant and within walking distance to the beach and other anemities.

Front Desk staff were polite, not overly friendly, but did provide us with a map of the area. The room was clean , but in need of an update. Breakfast is very limited. It is conveniently located on the main Hwy , close to shopping and the city park.
