Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner who was not welcoming. Was given the keys to our room which smelt heavily like cigarette smoke, keep in mind this is a non smoking room and the bed in that room was from the 60's... very uncomfortable. I went back and he upgraded our room with no questions. We entered the... More

The place is good. It's just that the management don't turn on hot water until evening and that too for 2 hrs. It's the worst customer service too. As he told us to move out within 5 mins to the other motel..

In the past I have worked in the Hotel/motel business and I have never encountered an experience as I did Upon checking into the Old Country Motel. The staff was not properly trained for check-ins/check-outs and seemed quite surprised that I was even arriving even though I had a reservation booked through Bookings.com. I paid through Interac and asked the... More

Didn't know what to expect, but I was pleased! Clean rooms. Friendly staff. Area looks a little dodgey because it's near the harbour, but I would definitely stay here again. No place close by to eat is a bit of a pain if you don't have a car.

I booked two rooms for 4 nights and was 508.00 ..I later added 1 room for 1 more night and he... More

Rent a one bed room for 60$ with taxes. Not expensive but it doesn't worth more : the dishes in the kitchenette were dirty and the matress cover was burnt by cigaret butts, like one pillow. The bed cover also saw a lot of visitors before! Worst of all : the two hands printed on the back of the bathroom... More

My room was about the worst room I've ever stayed in .My room had a mattress that was at least 30 years old and I am honestly not exaggerating. The decor was from the 70's. Crooked, sagging table. Very old towels. Awful chemical air freshener odor. I couldn't even pull the sheet over my body. I slept at the edge... More

Stayed for 1 night it was ok, floors are laminate and get dirty quickly perhaps a broom in the rooms would help. Also there were 2 floor rugs on the floors that should just not be there, they are dirty and get crumpled up and in the way. Shower was hot and clean, bathroom was clean beds were ok, they... More
