This is reminiscent of the roadside Americana available throughout the USA, though it is near the international bridge in Sarnia. It is not a spectacular motel, but it is a decent enough place sleep for a night if passing through town.

I went to this motel from july 31 to august 3 2015. It is an ok motel, the internet is fast, it has a fridge and air condition. A lot of channels on the tv but the bathtub was not clean. It is very close of everything.

We returned here several times as the menu offers healthy foods, prepared in a healthy manner, served with a healthy attitude, and very reasonably satisfying Delicious meats, vegetables, salads, you name it. "Sarry"! I've not ever rented a room here as I'm a local resident. My Review is HERE as I'm UNaware of how to Correct a Sent-To-Early Review here... More

Outdated yes staff excellent, not cleanest but for rate I get to just sleep my 7 hours more then fine better then many other places I seen.Suggest place if you just want to sleep and go! Nothing more good about it but cost efficient for a cheap mattress and roof over head.

Unfortunately for me, I booked through Expedia and after looking at room decided not to stay. Would not give me a refund. Wii never use third party again. Carpets are wrinkled and stained. Never bothered to check the sheets. Nothing more to say.

Front desk was helpful and friendly and checked us in very quickly. The price is actually pretty affordable since I'm a pretty frugal type of person. It's a good enough place to stay for the traveler on a budget! I love that there was free wifi as I know some hotels charge for wifi and internet usage and only offer... More

I should have paid attention to the reviews, but I was attracted to the cheap rates. I guess you get what you pay for. My room was on the second floor. Though it was cold out, a couple of guests had their doors open. From the looks of them, it appeared this was their home. When I got in the... More

Walked in the room and it smelled like an ashtray. I was told by an employee the owner turns off the heat to save money, it was 12 degrees celcius in the room. The night staff who live there are lazy. The internet wasn't working and they complained that they had to unplug the modem once every few hours. The... More
