Just needed a room before jumping off on a fishing adventure the next morning. Check in was easy, room was the old style drive up to motel type...although most avoid these type of accommodations, it was fine. If the room is clean and comfortable, actually very very clean, I am cool with it. Would I take my wife there for... More

Reasonable price, clean rooms and friendly staff makes this an ideal overnight stay. Certainly not a 5 star accommodation but a great place to spend a couple of nights. Large rooms with good parking and very quiet a night, giving you a good nights sleep. A 5 minute drive from fast food restaurants, a grocery store and conveniently located on... More

Give this place a chance when you are considering staying in Cochrane ON A BUDGET. Rooms are okay, clean enough for not too picky clients, without any major flaws or things needing repairs. Pros: ample parking (well, this is Northern Ontario, with plenty of space around... :) ; good room size; decent restaurant on site; working & powerful AC (worked... More

The staff was friendly and the location close to the highway.The room was clean and had a comfortable bed.It had a fridge and a newer tv.There was a nice restaurant next door to the motel.I think it's good value for the money.

Traveling home but too tired to complete the trip. Found the room and bathroom to be very clean and owners were friendly. Noticed other work/companies stopped there as well. Internet was fast! Had a great rest and was on my way.

Old style motel actively undergoing renovations so no two rooms are alike. Hi speed, fridge, coffee and microwave in all four rooms I have rented here. Proper work desk which the "posh" hotel in town lacks in many of its rooms. Newer HDTV. Great rate excludes breakfast. Steakhouse next door (same ownership) does takeout. For sure the facility is tired... More

When we got there we found out the motel was about $5 more than advertised online. We were able to get the advertised price once we talked to the guy at the front desk. We got to the room, tried to turn the lamp on by the front door, and the knob was missing, making the lamp unusable. Which amplified... More

I hate to say it, but you get what you pay for. Owner was very friendly. Beds were comfortable. Entire room was dated and dirty. Toilet had not been cleaned (grossed me right out), garbage had not been emptied. Room was not clean, stained torn up carpet, floors and baseboards, stained chairs. All unacceptable.
