We stayed at this hotel as my son was attending a conference at Ridgetown and we had to be there fairly early in the morning. The hotel looked good on the website.

Thank you kindly for your review. As our building is a little older but rooms refurbished, and the location being a bit rural we focus on guests happiness primarily as this is one thing we can control. We are glad you appreciate our efforts and enjoyed your stay! More

Staff were friendly and helpful, room was clean comfortable bed and nice TV, also included a fridge, coffee maker, and microwave. The pool was clear although the water was a bit cloudy, it was heated and was nice for swimming, I would definitely choose this hotel again if staying in the area

Thank you kindly for your review. When we shock our pool it does indeed get a bit cloudy for up to 48 hours and this is a process we must do every other week to keep the pool chemicals at a proper level. More

Room was in good condition; motel was quiet; host was very friendly and helpful; internet connection slow at times. Very good value for the money, though. Overall, a pleasant stay.

We stayed here with about 10 other families for a Jr Tyke hockey tournament. Most of our team stayed here. The kids had... More

Our stay was very good. Hunter was so nice and friendly. I left my boots there by accident and he shipped them to me right away! Very helpful. This hotel was very convenient for where our destination was the next day.
