This motel was extremely clean, the beds were as good as you'd find anywhere, and it had everything we needed in the little kitchenette. Comfortable, roomy and comfy. Next door to a lovely garden. The view of the bay was lovely, though that was from outside rather than from the room. For a basic place to stay, this was exactly... More

This old motel is cheap and that's about all. It doesn't look like it's been renovated or updated since the 1950's. The bed is old but appears to be clean. The room is musty and there are several areas that look like mold is starting to grow. When I walked into the bathroom, I saw a large black spider in... More

Stayed here one night early in September. This 1950's style motel was neat and tidy on the outside and clean on the inside. There were good beds, a small table and chairs and lots of space to exercise and move around. The full kitchen was clean and well equiped and a delight after spending a month eating in restaurants. There... More

First of all let me say...THERE IS NO AIR CONDITIONING IN THE ROOM! We stayed in August, not even thinking to ask upon check-in if there was one because I mean, WHAT KIND OF HOTEL DOESN'T HAVE ANY A/C?! No fans either! It was stuffy in the room with both available windows open, even though it was cool outside. Couldn't... More

Believe the bad reviews! This motel is not worth it. They will want your money and you are not worth it as their customer. I am a frequent traveler and this is the only place where Reception has given me a room (and a warning not to use the second bed). I initially asked for a quiet room but eventually... More

We got off to a bad start when they charged me $5 more than the rate quoted when I made the reservation by phone. The room had a foul odor to it. There were mold and mildew in the bathroom and around the windows. When we pulled back the covers on the bed we found black hairs on the sheets.... More

We stayed in this motel for two nights, at $65+tax per night. The room had a full kitchenette, including dishes, and was clean. They used to serve breakfast, but now they just have coffee in the main office. There really is a nice view of Manawagonish Island, although not visible from my window, but from outside of the motel. The... More
