Lovely little motel/hotel just off 401 near Ridgetown, Ontario. Rooms are comfortable and quiet, all amenities fridge, microwave, hair dryer, iron/ironing board....beds are great and A/C works really well. Pool very handy because everything is on the main floor, and breakfast is included with your stay...new restaurant just opened food was very good.

I realize that this is an OLDER venue in a value chain. The building and trappings are old and tired. The rooms are reasonably kept and the bathroom was spotless. The continental breakfast was better then many value level properties that I have stayed at. On my 2nd morning, I awoke to no hot water. Their maintenance contractor worked throughout... More

Thank you for your review, we apologize for the inconvenience but the matter was out of our hands. We did our best to call our HVAC repairman who got our boilers up and running during late hours the previous day, in the morning our staff discovered that the problem had not gone away. We did our best to get someone... More

Generally, a pleasant experience overall. The desk staff person was pleasant, efficient and knowledgeable. The housekeeping and facilities maintenance could stand a bit of an upgrade, though. The food in the restaurant was excellent.

Stayed hear after visit to Rondeau Provincial Park. Good location near Highway 401 and two miles from Ridgetown. Property very clean and well maintained. Had a very good retro feeling with older but well cared for furniture and a clean, comfy bed. Tuscany restaraunt is attached and serves the included breakfast in the morning.

This hotel has changed hands over the years but during the past 2-3 years, many upgrades to the rooms have been made. Years ago, I called it a dive, but now I would say it it a very nice hotel along the 401 that any traveler should be comfortable with. I have stayed at this hotel over the years because... More
