Clean and quiet. The room was nice and it had a fridge and coffee maker. Only issue with the room was there was no heat in the washroom and was way too cold to shower. Restaurant does not open until may.

Average room, very cold floor tiles, no heat in room prior to our arrival - got it cranked and things were better. Too bad the restaurant was closed for the season, so we had to go into Wawa for eats. Nice and quiet for sleeping.

Dont' pass this place by. I've stayed in many motels, and hotels for that matter, across Northern and Northwestern Ontario. I usually stay in St. Sault Marie when travelling across the province using this route, but never again. I will be staying here! No doubt about it. This will be a tradition from now on! When we arrived late in...

Very clean motel with conveniently located restaurant adjacent to the motel lobby that serves good meals. Simple, but pleasant decor with units with King bed or two beds. This place is a breath of fresh air after breezing by many of the motels in the North that either didn't survive or are abandoned. Our king room came with fridge and...

We had breakfast in their restaurant last week and found it very good with reasonable prices. It is a Polish restaurant and looking at the dinner menu we thought it would be a great choice for next time. It is three km. south of town but has two motels and another good restaurant next door.

Room is clean and beautiful with electric fireplace. Bedding is done with the great duvets and the tub is a great soaker. Dining in the restaurant was exceptional, food and service above and beyond. Just off the highway before Wawa. Staff are friendly and the service was great. This is a cozy place to stop for your nights rest before...

People comment on the food being good. It is. Menu is a little exotic, so if you are looking for a burger joint, this isn't it. Room is nice, clean and comfortable. Town of wawa is a few miles up the highway, so if you are looking for a place that is walking distance to food marts, gas or other...

Stayed for one night on on trip around Lake Superior. The room had all those little details that made it stand out from all the big chain Hotels. Food was fantastic. Service great . We never had Dill Pickle soup before, but I know we would enjoy it again. If you get the chance, do not pass up this soup...

My husband and I stayed here on our way through Ontario. Very clean and comfortable room. The motel is close to highway but secluded. There is a nice bar/restaurant that serves delicious food. Definitely would stay here again!
