We booked a stay at the Centro Motel for our move across Canada from BC to Ontario. As when I was booking other motels, I advised the front desk representative that we would be travelling with a car and a UHaul truck towing a vehicle trailer. They told me parking would be no issue. When we arrived, we quickly saw... More

This was my second stay at Centro. My first visit was great! However, the hotel has definitely gone downhill since then. It is conveniently located on 16 Avenue and allows pets; making this all the more suited, as my dog comes on mountain hikes with me. I booked through Centro's homepage and promptly followed up with an email to Management... More

In 2014, I stayed here 7 days and enjoyed being close to many areas where I could walk during the day. There were several restaurants nearby for meals. This past week, I was at the Centro March 4th and 9th and was, again, happy with my choice. The renovated rooms are modern and inviting with many amenities you would find... More

A nice motel, at a decent price. Right on the #1 Highway(16 Ave) so it's easy to get downtown. Heard very little traffic noise in our room. The office staff were very friendly and helpful. The house keeping staff were also very helpful. The complementary breakfast was just enough. Yes, we would stay there again.

Stayed for 2 nights and would recommend this motel- it bats above its head in terms of comfort if you're looking for a convenient place to stay in a good area and you have a car with you.

Staff is very friendly, rooms are very clean, and there is very nice decor. The complementary breakfast was very good. Centro is in a good area, and close to major intersections. You don't hear the traffic at all in the rooms. There are great blackout curtains in the rooms.

I struggled to rate this motel because I typically don't stay in motels. I don't like having to open the door onto freezing cold weather, I don't like tracking dirt and snow into my room, and I don't like having to put my jacket on to go get my continental breakfast. That being said, I will explain my rating. Things... More

People might be tempted to pass on the Centro because it doesn't look all that appealing from the outside, but it really is a pretty decent place to stay. It has virtually no amenities, no pool, no gym, not much else besides a parking lot and place sleep. The rooms were clean and had an open feel with nice gray... More
