We drove past this place twice...no sign out front. Front desk couldn't answer any questions. No cameras, no AC. One tiny bed, one chair. Extension cords everywhere in room, fan not working, big soft spot in the floor...could roll an ankle if you weren't careful. Terrible night sleep. Breakfast is not included. Ice bags are behind front desk already bagged.... More

Old,dirty, small room. Large old furniture, double bed...no queen. Scary! No vacancy in this sad town...had to stay. Website has inaccurate photo of charming Englosh Tudor Inn. Canada Select should have another look and reduce this establishment to One Star.

The only thing really going for this hotel is its proximity to the airport. Fortunately we only need to stay there one night. The room was very small to begin with but the large furniture in the room made the situation even worse. It is an OK place if you just need to catch a few hours sleep but that's... More

We stayed here recently on business and all in all it was a quaint little place. Our room was clean, however very tiny & clearly designed for 1 person only. The furniture in this room was far too large & made navigating to the bathroom tricky. Bed was pushed into corner. If they removed 1 large piece, & replaced another... More

We already had a booking for the following two nights, but on this night before, I called because I had cancelled the room in between and hoped we could be accommodated at the Driftwood. Well we were kindly received by the friendliest front desk person I encountered on our trip. We actually became friends since. She tried to get us... More

Very old - outdated property with lots of stairs to contend with. Stairs meet you to get to the main building and then up to the lobby - from there two flights up to rooms. Room was clean and bathroom nicely modernized. No a/c - but access to window to open for fresh air.TV did not work. Hotel staff friendly... More

Watch out for the 7am wake up call with the sound of the air raid sirens that go off from the nearby power station that is now considered a tourist attraction.....

Maybe this place was recently renovated because it does not deserve some of the negative reviews. I stayed there with my parents. All 3 of us are picky. This place was super clean and affordable.
