I give this motel an average because I did not have the heart to give it a poor. We stayed here July 4 & 5, 2014. The people were friendly, but the motel smells dingy, the carpet in the halls is lifting up in spots and i don't know how many times we stumbled over them. The bathroom was so... More

On my recent road trip, this was the first hotel I stayed at, one of the most expensive, and the most disappointing. The bed was comfy, but the pillows were horrible. We ended up bringing in our own from the car as their were completely supportive. They were full of when felt like a sparse amount of lumped cotton batting... More

This is the hotel where our team is staying for an event, and if not for that, I wouldn't choose to stay here. It's convenient to the shooting park, but next time we'll probably just bring our trailer and camp like we did last year. The room smells like cleaning chemicals, and it's one of the smallest 2-queen rooms my... More

This hotel has everything you could want for young boys that need to be entertained or burn off energy that may be left over from a day on the ice. The pool is a nice size and then there is table tennis and an open area for hanging out. Nice bar and restaurant area too.

Duct tape holding the carpet together, old door to the room with very squeaky hinge, bathroom door that didn't always latch, old run down pool area, pool towels the size of hand towels, lots of freeway noise. I would stay somewhere else!

We stayed here as part of an annual group event recently. We travel a fair amount and this hotel is wayyyy to overprices for how badly it needs updates and repairs. We paid over $125 for a night. Bathroom door cracked... hard to open door. Talked to one couple and their door handle actually came off. The outside doors claim... More

We were very excited at the thought of having a family getaway weekend. We chose this hotel because of the location, advertisement of a remodel, plus the pools, basketball, volleyball court and floor hockey area. Upon checking into our pool side room, we went to tour the hotel amenities. The pool area was ok and included a few video games,... More

Enjoyed finding our favourite hotel at the end of a long day but that's where the joy ended. This is a tired, noisy place that salted the wound by being overly expensive. Great staff and an adjoining restaurant helped sooth the pain but this is a definite by-pass on all future journeys.
