We have been staying here with our kids for several years running. It is exceptionally clean and convenient. The room is larger than in most hotels. The view of the river and consistently spectacular sunsets never gets boring. The service is unfailingly warm and welcoming. The pool is heated and always available (if it's locked you can ask for the... More

Our family travells a lot and we were shocked at these accommodations. Our room was dated, extremely dusty, and smelled of smoke. The beds were like sleeping on a board. My husband is allergic to dust and had an allergy attack in the middle of the night and I felt like I was breathing smoke fumes from my pillow. When... More

This motel is decent, but priced at least 20% too high for what you get. We were given a tiny room pool-side, so didn't have the benefits of the view. You can get coffee from the lobby, but no machine in the room. The owner was a bit rude over the phone when we were reserving and discussing the fact... More

I have remedied my mistake with the date of our stay. We stopped one night on our way to Quebec City from New Brunswick. We were well received and offered a room with a view of the Saint Lawrence river. It was delightful so take your binoculars. I had planned to swim in the pool but the weather was unseasonably...

I read some amazing ratings on Trip Advisor, which is why I chose this motel. I paid $150 because I had a pet (which is more than other places I've stayed). Our pet-friendly room had a bit of a smell to it. We arrived at 6:30 and were leaving at 11am the following morning, travelling from PEI to Ontario. I... More

We stayed one night on our drive through to Nova Scotia. We had a 2 double bed room for us, 2 young kids and a dog. The room Was a great size, incredibly clean and functional. They are pet friendly with a big lawn outside your door. We were looking for a clean, budget motel and it fit perfectly. Pride... More

Check in was fast and friendly. Room was very clean. Nice that it came with a fridge! Large heated outdoor pool and a great view! Would definitely recommend this motel! I also love the fact that you can park in front of your room and unload your luggage

The motel was very clean through out, from the lobby, rooms, and the pool. Room rates were very fair. The owner had a ton of dining recommendations. Reception was very warm and courteous as well. Definitely a pleasant stay and we will stay again if ever in the area.

We stayed here in a bit of a frantic search for a hotel as the other reservation we initially made ended up being a total disaster. The gentleman at the front desk who checked us in around 10:30pm was so sweet and friendly. The rooms cannot be described as anything other than homey, clean and comfortable. Nice comfy beds and...

My husband and I have stayed here on two occasions (soon to be a third) and have always received a warm and friendly welcome at check-in. After long days of driving, we have slept like babies in a comfortable bed in a quiet room. The bathrooms are very clean and tidy. We have also had the distinct pleasure of eating... More
