This place was much older and did not look like a motel...more like an old shopping mall. The office area was locked up when we arrived in the middle of the day so this delayed our check in just a little. I think it is a family run business with their residence right next door. The rooms were very clean... More

We overnighted at the Catalina on a trip across Canada in July 2014. Price is pretty good at $79 + tax, you get what you pay for. Reservations seamless and courteous, over the phone. Check-In efficient and a little rushed, we were late and tired, our hostess was in the middle of putting kids to bed and really didn't want... More

We do have decaf coffee available upon request. If you don't mind emailing a message to me letting me know which room it was that needed to be touched up, paint wise, I will get on it. Hope we can meet your expectations next time. Dean. More

Very basic, but good value. Handy to have fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Extremely clean. Owner on vacation. The dad not very friendly, but did check us in ok. Nice and quiet. Beds very comfortable and nice table and comfy chairs to sit at.

A great little motel. Very clean, the furnishings new, convenient and a good price. Definitely better quality and bang for your buck than a chain hotel room at the same price point in Sault Sainte Marie.

Really nice owner, provided a motorcyclist discount without asking, rags to clean the bike. Clean room, a cool fridge ( that's rare) and conviently placec in the city. Don't hesitate or get a more expensive place for more hype.

I stayed there after having a bad experience at another motel. The room was modern and VERY clean. Plus it only costed an extra $1 a night with the CAA discount compared to the other dump across the street that I was staying at. Overall you can tell that the owners take pride in what they do and invest a... More

If you're looking for quality, cleanliness and great location, this is where you want to stay. After staying in a couple other locations on our holidays, we were able to make comparisons. This was the most reasonably priced and most comfortable motel room we stayed at. The rooms were very clean and included a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, dvd player,... More

Dean. Is. The. Man. Seriously. We have been researching a snowmobiling trip via the Agawa Canyon Snow Train for years. We came across Dean's site while searching for more information.
