We enjoyed our three day visit and would stay there again, The staff in the motel and the restaurant were very friendly and helpful. Seniors and Handicapped must book early and request a main floor room, there is no elevator and quite a few steps to the next floor. Jungle Jim's restaurant has a great menu, but it doesn't open...

Chris L, Manager at Deer Lake Motel, responded to this review

Hi Tanya, Thank-you for the review, however I think there has been a slight mix up in the motel name. The Deer Lake Motel does not have a Jungle Jim's Restaurant. We have our own family restaurant and we are located on the Trans Canada Highway. Jungle Jim's is located at the Drift Wood Inn. Either way it is great... More

We stayed at this motel coming into Newfoundland, and Flying out of Newfoundland. The rooms have been renovated, clean with white bedding (brown accents). Bathroom is renovated, but threw me off a bit, not used to having the sink in a separate room across from the toilet & tub rm, but makes it easier when multiple people are sharing the... More

Perfect hotel for a short stay. Friendly staff. ATM did not work with my (European) Visa card. Has a simple family restaurant attached (I did not like the food, but my fellow travellers were not that negative). There was a (planned) power outage in the morning, but the kitchen staff went out of their way to arrange for hot coffee,... More

The lady on the front desk deserves a gold medal for customer service!!!!! I stayed the night of the 13th and arrived there about 11 am. She did EVERYTHING to get me into a room early and I appreciated it so much. The restaurant food was excellent (very tasty) and not too pricey. The room was clean; supplied with everything... More

Clean, modern comfortable room at a reasonable rate. They serve a first rate buffet breakfast as part of room charge. Easy access to Trans Canada highway and Viking Trail. Good place to stop after getting off the Port-aux-Basque ferry.

We've stayed at the Deer Lake Motel twice in the last year, both times on busy travel itinerary when coming to, and now leaving, Newfoundland via the ferry service. The place is completely "no hassle". We booked over the phone quickly and easily. Check-in was great, the rooms tend to be small, but are newly renovated and very clean. The... More

I stay at this Motel quite regularly. It is conveniently located for those late night arrivals and early morning departures. The staff are simply amazing. Very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are nice, beds are comfortable and breakfast is perfect.

Deer Lake Motel was a stop over while traveling to another destination. The rooms are small but clean. It is what you would expect in a small town. The restaurant is great and the staff are accommodating and very friendly.

I arrived at the motel and there were no vacancies. The front desk clerk went out of her way to accommodate me through calling another group, and was able to find a room for me. The room was clean and comfortable. The restaurant has a good breakfast, but the steak dinner in the evening was less than impressive. Overall, a... More
