Twice we have stayed here while traveling through the area on our bicycles. Both times the owners have been extremely pleasant and helpful. 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

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

My sister and I stayed here and we cannot say enough about the management of this place. The husband/wife team go out of your way to make sure that you are comfortable, answer all of your questions and do whatever they can to make your stay memorable. Yes, the rooms could use some updating, but they were clean and comfortable... More

I was staying at this motel at the same time as the ball teams, and the management handled the noisy parents and players appropriately, including having the police escort one heavy drinker off the property after his belligerence overcame his intelligence. The service was extremely good, and their recommendations for great restaurants were spot on. This is a very clean,... More
