The staff was extremely nice & helpful. The room was obviously recently updated. We had a family room. It had 3 beds & a FULL KITCHEN. The only negative was that the pool was empty, but Lake Huron us right down the road so who really cares, right?

My teen son & I stayed for 3 nights during the Silverstick Hockey Tournament. The room had lots of space for luggage and to spread out his hockey gear. There was a small bar fridge, which needed to get plugged in but ran fine. There was a microwave and a TV with full cable. We were told when we checked... More

This is an older motel that has been tastefully renovated. The room was clean. The shower had the bowed shower rod giving extra room in the shower. This is not a usual feature in an older motel. The rooms don't come equipped with a blow dryer however a call to the front desk was all we needed to do to... More

I stayed at Gables Inn with my two children after a long trip from USA. People were very nice at the hotel. Beds were very comfortable with good mattresses. I could have slept much longer...just didn't want to get up. It was nice to have fridge and microwave in the room and also the room was quite large. I didn't... More

This is a nice clean little motel. Not a place to stay in a rainny day. Just a plce to sleep and shower. Ramesh and Falguni (Mgrs) are very helpful. If you're expecting to have Marriott's confort and services, you better go there and spend the money. I satyed 4 nights and was satisfied for my money

This motel was everything the positive reviews here have shown: basic, but clean and comfortable. The mattresses were great, a fantastic night's sleep. Incredibly helpful, accommodating, and helpful management/owners. Perfect price for the services offered, especially for our one night there on our trip from Western New York to Southwestern Michigan. We would definitely stay here again.

Had booked a week ahead and arrived on a very hot sunday afternoon. Person at the front desk was pleasant although it took her a while to find my reservation. Headed to the room and before unloading we wanted to check and make sure everything was fine. The cost was expensive for a motel such as that and they weren't... More

We were attending a wedding on Canada Day weekend and had no one to look after our 8 year old, very spoiled, dog. The owner agreed to let us bring her. There is a large grassy area at the motel for us to walk Sadie. I assume we did not have a renovated room, but it was an average size,... More

I recently stayed for 5 days at The Gables Inn, Sarnia, while visiting family in the area. My room was in the newly renovated and "deluxe" section of the motor court. The room was clean and adequate for my needs. I was far enough back in the facility to not have any road noise. The bathroom was clean but I... More
