Stayed here for an extended stay as I was working in the area. My toilet leaked for the entire time and mildewed, housekeeping never came. TERRIBLY RUDE OWNERS! Stay at any other local motel but here! Well I would avoid the Downeaster down the street ad well, But

We needed a place to stay overnight en-route to Seneca Falls from St-John New Brunswick, booked late so limited choice on a budget. This motel had everything we needed; close to our route, convenient parking outside the room, and even though it's out of town there are good restaurants, fast food outlets and fuel station close by. The accommodation is... More

I made a reservation for this motel. When I checked in and saw and smelled my room I felt instant regret and some trepidation. The motel is old, the rooms are not kept up and it is in an isolated spot. I was traveling alone. I tried to take a nap, but couldn't sleep. When I met back up with... More

Checked in to find a dirty room that smelled terrible. The floors were worn and the bathroom had a slippery film on the surface. To our surprise, on the wall was a smashed cockroach. That was enough, so we went to the office to indicate we could not stay. The manager refused to refund any part of the stay and... More

I have stayed at the Admiral a number of times over a few years. It is indeed a bit older, not fancy AND it is the price and the Very nice owners are what keep me coming back. They are located right next to Anjohn's restaurant which means they are just down the road from Pine Point public beach and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights to take a little staycation away from home. Checked in around 5pm - had to ring the bell to get into office as the family who runs it actually lives in the attached house. Was in the room in minutes - Was given a room with 2 doubles rather than the queen I had booked.... More

We had not planned to stop for the night yet but a terrible rain storm brought us in off the interstate to find shelter. The name brand chain hotel down the street was taking advantage of travelers pulling off the road to seek shelter...a room that normally would rent for around $100.00 a night was quoted with a AAA discount...
