The motel is nice and neat with a very affordable price. It has a very organized kitchenette with all required amenities. Dollard, the owner, is a gentleman. He is very modest and ready to help with any questions. The access is easy with parking in front of room. The beds are comfortable and clean. Is worthwhile if you are visiting... More

John's Motel has become our go-to lodging when working in the area. I've had up to three staff stay here from a one night stay to 5 nights. Dollard, the owner, is friendly and accommodating. Rooms are spotless and one can see the great care in cleanliness. Kitchenettes are full size kitchens. Love the pillows. The motel is close to... More

I asked Dollard for room with microwave and fridge. I had a very nice spotless room with a large kitchen. Table and 4 chairs full size fridge stove microwave and all the utensils for 4 people. Dollard is a very nice friendly and helpful host. I recommend his motel to anyone travelling in the Bathurst area

This is a great place to stop if you just need a place to rest for the night. You'll get the rest you need and the satisfaction that you've spent your money well. John, the owner, is a nice guy, and he's around if you need any help. The price is better than many other places in the area. Easy... More

Got caught in a rain storm on our Harley's while touring NB. We saw the sign and took a chance. We were pleasantly surprised! The owner was very accommodating to bikers, gave us some rags to wipe off our bikes. The room was well maintained and very comfortable. There were 2 other bikers on their way to Quebec staying there... More

We stayed at this dog friendly motel for a night for an extremely reasonable price. We had a great time chatting with the owner, John, who is super friendly and wonderful to talk to. We watched some TV on the flat screen, had hot shower (water pressure is great!), and got good night's sleep. No wonder this is the first... More

We stayed at John's motel one night instead of camping because it was raining. Very, very clean motel. Well taken care of and it shows. Close to downtown Bathurst. There is even a pool. For sure the best price in the area. Would not hesitate to go back if we're in the area again. Thank you !
