All 3 of us were afraid to sleep under the covers. Rooms were old and cramped. No blow driers, tried for assistance in the morning and only response was very loud snoring. My sister and wife put chairs to block the door s due to creepy people hanging around. Wash rooms were disgusting

Very old but very clean. Just needed place to sleep served its purpose. Was located close to what we were seeing and the owners were very pleasant. Enjoyed a camp fire in the evening before bed. . If you need inexpensive, clean place to stay this is good place.

The place is reminiscent of older "Mom & Pop" motels, but we had everything we needed, and it was clean. Location is great; close to South Baymouth, ferry, restaurant down the road. Ishmael was very hospitable & knowledgeable about the area, as well as other travels. Enjoyed our stay!

Clean and slept well. New owners are very helpful and ent out of their way. No AC. If you want a clean place to crash it fits the bill. Maybe 2 kms off the ferry and be sure to grab a bite at the Gardens Gate.

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
