Have stayed here multiple times and the service is always amazing. The owners go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need. The rooms are always kept very clean. The only reason the rating isn't 5/5 is because the internet really sucked and would cut out every 5-10 minutes. When staying for an... More

This last trip even driving one of our people to several stores to look for spare tubes. The rooms are vey clean, and the facility show obvious attention to details and care. Also, the York Diner in... More

The owners were very welcoming and helpful. I was so glad to have laundry facilities. The room was very clean but I give it a lower rating because the carpet in the room was significantly stained which made it seem dirty. I highly suggest a different color vs. light blue. Also, the internet service was unreliable - and that is... More

I recently had to travel to Duncan 3 times for family related business. I had stayed somewhere else the first time but being a single female traveller, I wanted someplace that felt safe. Voila! The couple who manage the property couldn't have done more for me. The room was spotless, the cleaners were very professional and friendly. I definitely recommend... More

I had occassion to spend a night at this wonderful friendly motel on August 16, 2014 while my new house was still under construction. Again, Martin and Maureen (the owners) greeted and welcomed me, inquired if I had any special requests, needs or concerns and offered me a room in my preferred location. This motel is clean, cheerfully decorated with... More

Sparkling clean, modern, very comfortable bed and best price we found in Duncan. Convenient to highway, downtown and local attractions. Try the restaurant on its property--very good. Martian, the owner was very helpful.

Not understanding the 4/5 star reviews. It's not that great of a place. It's a motor inn. The owners? Ya, they are ""nice"" but anyone can be nice. Wanted outta there after the first night, but apparently they do not refund for upcoming days that you have already paid for. Was never comfortable there during my whole stay. Was told... More
