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

We stayed here with our ball team for a tournement. What a joke! Rooms smelled really bad. Beds were super hard. No hot water! Don't take your shoes off when you are in the room. We got 2 tiny towels for the 3 of us in our room. When we went to get more, before they passed us the towels,... More

Change of owners since September 2012. No dogs allowed anymore. I stayed in a room with a kitchen. It was spacious and bright. For someone wanting inexpensive with no frills but a good location to get to the 401 or Cobourg/ Port Hope/ Gores Landing, this matches.

Came because my mother was having eye surgery early next morning. Everything was excellent and close to hospital. When we got here were given an extra discount because of the surgery. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would come here again over more expensive chain hotels.
