Having to be at a function early on the Saturday it was simple & easy to book rooms for our whole family to be close by and ready to go for the right time. The hotel is easy to find (right off the highway), surprisingly quiet, adequate breakfast for everyone & reasonably priced. As a quick stop when you're in... More

Thank you kindly for your review. Your description of our property and what we are was very accurate. We are a 1-2 star hotel with great staff and make the most of what we have in our rural area. Our location is great being only 500m off the 401 which makes us the only hotel in a large area with... More

Our family required 7 rooms only for an overnight stay. The Management was very helpful in co-ordinating the different types of rooms that were required. We were pleased with the selection of rooms and the cleanliness of the rooms for the most part. One king bed room unfortunately smelled of stale smoke. The continental breakfast suited most people in our... More

The carpets are filthy in the rooms and most common areas. The furnishings are very dated and the bed linens questionable as to the frequency of cleaning. There are... More

Thank you kindly for your response and review for our hotel. We had our surprise annual inspection only a few months ago and though it is true that our property is older our rooms got a 95% for cleanliness which is far above the standard. This is an older building and the grout in the tubs might need a touch... More

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. However upon arriving and staying there this is definitely not the case. Hot tub not functioning. Pool and sauna area pretty gross. Hotel bed and pillows hard and... More

Thank you kindly for your review. All criticism is appreciated. We do have many guests that love our hotel and some do not. We believe it is all about expectations. This is an older building, a 1.5 star hotel in a rural area. We do our best to keep it up properly and clean. The low season is the time... More

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.
