Room was large, clean but dated. Beds were firm and comfortable. AC needed to be cleaned. Adjacent restaurant was good, reasonably priced for sandwiches, burgers, etc. - Coffee shop style. Parking at the door. We had a room near the street so did get traffic noise. Limited TV stations. However, we were basically wanting a bed for the night at... More

Stopped here midway driving from Wisconsin to Niagara Falls. Very friendly staff, nice place, very reasonable price. The room was very 50's/60's décor, which we enjoyed. As in all travel, it depends on your attitude and requirements - could say it needs to be updated, but we found it very quaint and more than adequate. Included microwave, small fridge, good... More

Located by Devonshire mall. Located near hwy and shopping. Cheap with pool and restaurant on site. Many places to eat and close to downtown and casino. Nothing special but has history in city. Whirlpool available to upon request.

I cannot say enough positive comments about this family run motel! The grounds are both well kept and spacious, the outdoor pool is clean and fresh, and there is even a playground for kids! There are many types of rooms, just let them know what you need and they will accommodate. The family and their staff are friendly and courteous,... More

First let me preface my review with my take on motels (as opposed to hotels). My wife & I love old school motor inns & motels. None of them are the Ritz Carlton nor should that be the expectation at their room rates. Staying at these type of motels is affordable and gives my wife & I the nostalgic feel... More

I stayed at the Ivy Rose Motor Inn for four nights, early in June 2015. I enjoyed it immensely. The staff are friendly and very welcoming--not cold robots, like at chain establishments. I was always greeted with a warm smile, and they truly appreciated my being there. The room was clean, comfortable and cozy. They are pet-friendly, and there are... More

Like staying in a crack house! The paint peeling on the door should have been my first clue to just turn around and go home. No soap in the bathroom. The bathroom tap runs continuously, the phone didn't work, there was some girl's camisole on the floor beside the bed, the room stank, spiders everywhere, old TV that got maybe... More

After having been out of town for 2 weeks, my wife and I decided to take a couple of days away from the kids. We took off to Windsor and arrived late at night. I had to buzz multiple times in order to get a desk clerk who was an old dude with a walker (owner?) and slippers. There was... More

The Ivy rose motor inn is a great place to stay in Windsor. And the food taste great and the price was right. We had little time to get ready for a wedding but we loved it and we will be back next year
