This review concerns a rather unpleasant experience we had at the Lotus Motel in Cobourg (823 William Street, Cobourg, Ontario, K9A 3A8, (905) 372-2228) during September 14 through 15, 2014. I may preface this by saying that I travel a lot both in North America, Europe and other countries, and hence have experience of staying in hotels all over the... More

This hotel is very conveniently located with all utilities within easy walking distance. Our son was going to a boarding school in Port Hope and we stayed there two nights. The hotel has terrible wifi. This is not good for family. My wife never stayed in a regular motel and she was quite scared of tge weired looking other guests.

Only available room for same day on a long weekend. For $75/night you can't expect much but a clean fresh room would be nice. Very tiny queen size bed, comfortable enough and clean sheets. Bring febreeze and/or candles as our room smelled like a wet dog. Wifi was intermittent, lots of cable channels on an old zenith tv. Shower walls... More

Very friendly and welcoming staff, very reasonable rates makes this a great value. Air conditioning, cable TV and excellent WiFi coverage...very quiet and plenty of hot water...close to Cobourg beach, shopping and 401 highway!

We were almost frightened off by earlier reviews on this site, but had little choice because of several events in Cobourg. The property is under new ownership and management, and has been extensively renovated and up-dated. Our unit, and its bathroom were clean and tidy, the manager, resident on site, was accommodating and friendly. The bed was comfortable, the room... More

Clean room. Good staff. Cold water and it took forever to get warm water. Cable tv was great. Nice and close to fast food and tim hortons. A little noisy on the busy main street. Cobourg downtown is lovely.

This is the 2nd summer that we spent a night at the Lotus Motel and were we entirely happy both times. Nice location with both a Wendy's and a Tim Horton's nearby. Friendly staff. Were advised that hot water might be slow to our room - no problem - had lots of hot water.

My son's ball team stayed here July 5 and 6, 2013. I would never return, nor would I send my worst enemy there! Upon check in, we were warned that the hot water would take forever to get to our room, as it came from a tank under the office. We were told they weren't sure if there were towels... More

Before I start my review I need to premise that I am not a fussy traveller, and that I have stayed at many motels previously, and all I need to be happy is a clean, comfortable, safe, friendly environment. We stayed at the Lotus Motel with our son's ball team on July 5 & 6, and let's just say that... More
