Stayed at John's Motel for a couple of weeks while working in the Bathurst area in August, 2014. Our host Dollard was very friendly and accomodating. The rooms we rented were clean and beds comfortable, overall a very positive experience. I would not hesitate to stay at John's Motel again!

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

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 went here with my boyfriend while doing a road trip, this was the cheapest we could find in that area. It was Average, the bed was decent but hard, we had an okay night sleep but will not be returning there. Upon our arrival we asked a couple questions and the person at the front desk made us feel...

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
