I stayed 2 nights and found the motel very clean. Even though I was buy myslef I was given a large room with 2 beds. The owner is very friendly and helpful. It is a very busy motel as they have many contruction contractors staying there. However it was very quiet. Prices are much less than staying at other venues... More

The rooms were unusually large - great for families, especially if you need room for cots, or sleeping bags on the floor. It was older, dated, pretty much everything was well worn, even shabby, and should be updated, but it was CLEAN - which is most important. Parking lot felt safe, even late at night because it was large, and... More

This motel was one of the absolute worst hotels I've ever stayed in. First off I booked a room 2 weeks prior to staying, asked for a non smoking room, what did I get? A smoking room. I have two small kids, and the manager said he gave all other rooms away, even though we booked it in advance. Secondly,... More

We have stayed here twice now(clearly should not have given it a second chance) and both times the neighbouring rooms have been full of loud, disrespectful construction workers who party outside the rooms and slam doors all night. Tried to call the front desk to report it but no one picked up. Ended up staying up almost all night as... More

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
