Stayed in this motel while vacationing in Peterborough for 1 overnight in early August. It was late and they only had 1 room remaining so i took it while checking in. The lady asked if i wanted to view the room and i should've taken her up on it, but didn't! Very unclean, mattress not comfortable. The bathroom... leaky faucet,... More

We stayed there July 2014 for one night. We had stayed there approximately 7 years ago and it was quite nice. NOT ANYMORE!!!! Thank goodness it was only one night. We booked a smoking room and were put into a non-smoking room but the women at the front desk gave us an ashtray and said it was ok so I... More

The owner is sweet and respectful one minute and yelling and screaming at guests the next, and honestly, for no apparent reason. The rooms are filthy and some of the room's walls have streaks of blood on them. Expect dirty bed linen in return for dirty bed linen, and the beds are at least 20 years old, or more. The... More

My daughter and I stopped in at this roadside motel on our way back from Ottawa to Waterloo. It was late and we were on the return journey having driven to Ottawa earlier in the day. We were not looking for much - just a clean bed to sleep in for the night. Unfortunately, this place did not have clean... More

I thought you get what you pay for but other motels down the road offer way better accommodation for the same and even less rates. I think the owners gave up on the hotel business a long time ago ...

I don't even know where to start. The first thing I did when I stepped into this joint was disinfect eveything, including wiping down handles, door knobs, remote control etc. The room smelled a little bit like sewage and cigarettes but we came prepared with insense. There were old blood stains on the footing of the bed, the ceiling tiles... More

The only good thing I can say about this place is I didnt see any cockroaches or mice. Even they wouldnt live there!. The place was so bad we went to Zellers and bought sheets and pillows as there were no other available rooms with a 45 minutes drive. Really wish I had taken some pictures. Where do I start?...

We selected this motel because of the positive reviews and made big mistake. Very old and small room (I would say 40 years old) with a terrible smell. Bathroom was also old and dirty. We stayed here 2 nights and nobody even try to clean the room after the first night. And it is located just near the busy highway... More

I stayed in the Motel while coming back from Ottawa to Toronto. This is one of the best places I had stayed. I am really fussy about the rooms but to my surprise the rooms were very clean and I asked for non smoking one It was really a non smoking. Bathrooms were very clean and towels were also fresh....
