My wife booked this motel. When I pulled up to it I thought "OMG". DON'T let looks be deceiving. The rooms are BIG, clean, modern and have big full cable TV, coffee pot, microwave, frig, hair dryer, etc. The owners are fabulous. Kind and helpful. My wife and I are older and have traveled around the world. We've paid $400... More

Chose this motel because they had a package for the Agawa Canyon train trip. Rooms were fine, clean, free wifi, and really liked to be able to sit outside at night on the chairs. You are on a main street so it can get noisy. A bit overpriced given that it needs some updating, and it was a bit frustrating... More

I found the Catalina Motel to be a very comfortable place. It was nice to find it was also motorcycle friendly. My brother in law and I rode in from Manitoulin Island upon our arrival we were offered pails of water and rags to clean our bikes if we wanted to. Check in was no problem we had purchased tickets...

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.
