All in all by far the worst place I have stayed. I am an electrician who travels a lot and has stayed in multiple motels over the years. This place is barely worth staying a night and I had to stay for a couple weeks so I really got to see its worth. Internet never works, rooms smell terrible like... More

Very basic. But ...Water in the shower was hot and adequate. Air conditioning worked, though we didn't need it. Beds were comfortable, although the bedding looked like it was from a thrift shop. Satellite TV and Internet worked, as did the wee fridge. Nothing fancy but walkable to the Haliburton School of the Arts, and downtown library, restaurants, grocery store.... More

I have stayed at this motel years ago and it was old BUT it was always clean every visit. Now under new management I thought I would try it. I was in Haliburton with family so we all stayed at the motel but in three different rooms. My moms room smelt like pee. My uncles room smelt musty and of... More

It was a pleasant visit. The staff is really helpful and easily available. There is a little diner next door,the motel is easily accessible to the lake and is walking distance to town. Perfect snowmobile spot. Everything else was okay. Older style linens, carpet. I'm not picky about decor. The heater was a little loud but worked quickly. The room... More

We stayed at the Silver Maple motel for one night while playing hockey in Haliburton. The rooms are clean, nothing fancy but the price is 1/2 of what the local resorts are charging. Close to downtown and the arena.

While Silver Maple Motel looks quite nice on the outside the rooms are really in need of an update and deep cleaning. The beds need replacing as do the linens and bedding. For the price I paid for one night is was really not worth the expense. Could be so much nicer.

Older motel, but clean and well maintained. PROs: Great location, right across from lake, restaurant adjacent, clean exterior. CONs: The rooms are very dated. Our room smelled mouldy and smoky. The linens were old see-though towels, and the bed sheets felt like they had an oily film on them, they were so old. Plastic covered old stained mattresses and pillows.... More

This place is run by people that are at best functional illiterates and the quality of the facilities reflects the lack of pride, care and attention to detail. The attached pictures speak for themselves. Notice the quaint cottage that is for rent. Notice the quality of how the beds were made and room was cleaned upon returning in the afternoon.... More

My husband and I were placed in a motel room at the Silver Maple during a business trip over the long weekend. When I walked into the room it had a distinct negative odor, and to be honest, the walls were just a really ugly yellow colour. It was not a 'sketchy' motel which was a bonus, but certainly not...

This hotel is a dump, they are extremely disorganized, and the staff/owners could not find their way out of a paper bag. On March 1st I made reservations to stay for 2 nights (Saturday and Sunday) in August during a family reunion. Our family reunion was nearby (well, 50 km away but there are not many motels in the area).... More
