We were two travelers coming into Canada from the US (Michigan) and stopped for a much needed rest as we were traveling for our third day. The welcome from the owners could not have been better. The check-in was seamless and as usual we were asked for simple ID and a payment method. The rooms were clean, prepared and well... More

Pulled in around midnight and the worker started giving us attitude right off the bat. What should have taken a couple minutes took almost an hour just to check into our rooms. Changing the price on the room every couple sentences. The rooms themselves were nice and comfortably but the service was borderline racial. The comment about, "..everybody has to... More

Our front desk persons have certain procedures they must follow. It did not take an hour, as they indicated, however it did take a little longer than average because the customers were not furnishing proper information and required identification in a expeditious manner, and the fact their stories kept changing as to how many persons were staying and types of...

I stopped in here after a very long day on the road. I was relieved to find that the were open and staffed at past midnight. The service at the counter was friendly as they quickly got me set up for the night. My room was clean and I got some desperately needed rest before my early morning departure. The... More

Only one pillow per person. Too expensive for what you get. Older TV. I believe thus is a $65 a night Motel and not $76 plus tax veterans/government rate. It lays literally in the shadow of more popular Hotel only $40 more. Very basic toiletries with wafer thin soap.

First of all we do thank our guest for choosing us. Yes, we are a smaller budget minded motel, but we certainly don’t compete against the larger chains, like the Hotel next to us. The chain hotel next to us is a very nice hotel. Our TV’s are 27” but not flat screen, but work well and clear. Yes we... More

Nice clean rooms. We were able to get a room towards the back so then we didn't have any noise from road or neighboring rooms. We had our dog with and had a nice well lit place to take dog out back. Water is hot and has good pressure.

Had stayed in another motel in the Sault area for previous 25 years on summer and fall trips to Canada but the owners had sold and retired and the place had really declined in the last few years. When the experience there hit rock bottom in Oct 2012 I drove up highway 17 looking for another place and stopped into... More

Just checked into our room, and already this is the best room so far on our bc to ontario road trip! The price is great, the front desk lady kind and personable and the room just plain wonderful.

On a trip around Superior we pulled into Sault Ste Marie late in the evening, The location is what grabbed our attention after originally intending on heading further into downtown.

I always like to stay in motels that are not chains, and Adams Motel is literally in the shadow of a corporate behemoth. So I felt good about making the choice to stay here. Until I actually STAYED there. It's a beat-down place, although the room was clean. There's a skeevy edge to the Adams. The walls are thin enough... More

Since 1985, this writer along with friends and family have visited the Sault to enjoy the Algoma Central Rail Tour both during the winter and fall seasons.
