This is a very old motel. Yes, our rooms were clean, but they were very old, and very very smelly. We were told on check in that there are work crews living there, and that if they were noisy, we should call the front desk. This was the point we should have turned around and left. The motel is two... More

Stayed a couple nights on a fishing trip. Really comfy beds I think I got the best sleep I had in years. There was three of us staying and we had asked for a cot in the room we had. Turns out the room was a little tight for a cot but the Manager ended up letting one of us... More

Definitely a clean hotel. Comfortable beds and friendly owners. I had a black square on my T.V. and they changed it right away. Stong showerhead as well. Nice little grocery store across the road as well.

I stayed there for 2 nights and had the most pleasant rest. The rooms are very clean and staff are first rate. The beds are pillow top mattresses and a leather reclining sofa, fridge with top freazer, and microwave. I will be staying there again at the end of February and my holiday visits to friends.

This motel had great customer service, the staff were beyond welcoming and helpful. They helped me with directions and recommended places to dine. Of all the hotels I have stayed in, this motel had the comfiest beds, making a well rested sleep extremely easy. The rooms are quiet and very clean. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

The inn was cheap and the staff were generally pleasant, I'll give it that. But I could hear everything in the rooms beside and above me. Also, I used their phone long distance and someone came into my room while I was at dinner to place the bill on my bedside table. I disliked this immensely. There was room under... More

Great little find, rooms are very clean and the new mattresses are very comfy. Good for what they charge. Bring your own shampoo ect as theirs aren't great for women. Great location down near the water. Great restaurant called Clarks near by that you can walk to.

From the outside it looks like another small town "dive" motel, but don't judge by appearances. I stayed here for two weeks while I was working in the Cold Lake area and would definitely stay here again. While a bit dated, the rooms are very clean and have some of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on (including high... More

I stayed at the Dockside Inn for 4 nights in February. The room was dark, but clean and pretty quiet considering they were full the whole time. I liked the breakfast room with all its choices of pastries, cereals, fruit and coffee. The coffee was good too. My room was nice and warm which I appreciated since it was -33... More

If you're there for fishing, it's great; a block from the marina with a grocery store across the street. Their parking lot is quite small however so if you need to park your boat, you might be in tough depending on what time of day you like to be on & off the water. Although dated, rooms are clean and... More
