The hotels owners Cathy and Ameal are really nice and very helpful sharing lots of useful island info. We traveled by motorcycle and they provided towels to wipe down the bike. Room was clean. Bed was older but it was quiet and we slept well. Close to the Chi Cheeman ferry stop.

Very nice! Probably the top lodging in the area. Great hospitality and a very nice and clean room. Manatoulin is off the beaten path so there are no chains. All mom & pop owned. A meal and Kathy could not have been nicer!

Very authentic motel with great owners! Free freshly baked blueberry muffins and coffee in the morning, and old school but charming rooms. Very large movie collection to choose from for free. Great location if you want to catch the early morning ferry. The owners saved our day when we locked ourselves outside of our rental car an hour and a... More

As a couple who travel on business in urban centers of Ontario, we were a little leary about staying in a roadside motel, but we put our my faith in the tripadvisor reviews and were pleased with our decision to stay at the Buckhorn Motel in early August 2014. The exterior of the motel is basic and the rooms have... More

We enjoyed our stay with Cathy & Ameal. It was more being a part of their home rather than just a motel. It was rustic, clean & quiet. In the morning there was coffee & tea waiting along with fresh baked blueberry muffins that were soooo good.. The ferry is only a few minutes away very convenient as we were... More

We were looking forward to our stay following a friendly and helpful email exchange with Cathy. The motel is a quick drive from the ferry, making it a perfect stop if you arrive on the evening ferry over. Cathy and Emile are really friendly and have lots of useful information and anecdotes to share. The room and bathroom are simple... More

The rooms were clean, bed was comfortable and Emil even put on a camp fire for us for the evening. His wife, Cathy went out of her way and baked us delicious blueberry muffins and coffee for the road. We were... More

The owners, Ameal & Cathy, make everyone feel welcome and at home. Great hosts who go above and beyond the expectations of a quiet motel. Prior to our trip, I visited the Buckhorn. They were very knowledgeable and helpful about everything on the Island. Our first Spyder Ryde tour of Manitoulin was nicely completed with Emeal putting on a camp-fire... More
