I don't normally write bad reports, but OMG. It was getting late in the evening so we pitched up in the first place we've come across. On our first impression from the outside it looked like a nice place but how wrong can one be. Over all the place was as depressing as a wet Monday in England. T'was unkempt...

With an overnight stay in Windsor and a number of stops on the way home, I found by the time I reached Thamesville there was a chance of me falling asleep at the wheel, and in need of a room for the night. A waitress I was expressing my concern with Googled motels in the area, with Ridgetown offering a...

My introduction to this Hotel was because of a new job. I was new to the area and looking for accommodations. The friendliness of the Owners certainly made me feel at ease in staying there until I could find a home in the area. My Room was Very Clean and it featured Hi-speed Internet, Satellite T.V. a nice size bar...

Thank you for kindly taking your time to review our property. In response to your comments and questions I will answer them to the best of my ability. For your first comment, the phones here work perfectly. I wonder how you were able to call me several times to make structural changes to your room. If they did not work...

The man who showed us the room was friendly, the bed was comfortable. I took my shoes off and walked across the rug to the bathroom and back to the door looked at my socks and couldn't believe how dirty they were so we didn't walk on the rug unless we had shoes on. The air conditioner needed a good...

Thank you kindly for your comment. After you had checked out I had myself the other manager and the housekeeper go to your room to check on the issue you had brought up a check out. Not one of us could find any "dirt" on the carpet. Maybe the natural grain of the carpet is different from what you normally...

The hotel is very run down. The washrooms for the common area were out of order when we arrived. If you needed a washroom after traveling you will have to wait until you have checked in. Needs a lot of updating to bring it up to snuff. my Apple and android devices would not connect to Wi-Fi.. Air conditioners are...

Good location, adjacent to HWY 401. Building is dated, but clean. Staff is friendly. Alarm clock has time zone auto correction, but didn't work. My key deactivated after day 1 of 2 and had to get staff to reprogram at 2;30 am.

Had my grandson's birthday party here, staff is so friendly and everything was great. The room was clean, the towels white and everything worked great in the room. I am always pleased with my stay here at the hotel.

An outdated motel. The surrounding land looks uninviting. It needs a major overhaul. Breakfast, buffet style, did not offer tea bags. The room contained a mixture of furniture that one can purchase at a garage sale.

Yes, we are an older hotel. That we cannot deny, but we are simple clean and comfortable. I am very sorry that you did not appreciate the farmland and simpler life all around the hotel.

Very much enjoyed my stay. The hotel was quiet and the staff quite friendly and helpful. My room was very clean, and I had plenty of towels.
