This is a convenient, utilitarian motel in the centre of Providence Bay. No frills! Our room had two twin beds, A/C, TV and a bathroom. Once we had put our two bikes in, it was full. The curmudgeonly owner, who has been running it for close to 50 years and whose favourite word starts with f, is more humorous than... More

Wood paneling and faux brick and a very creeky floor. the room was large. No wifi and no phone either. it was clean... More

The outside of the motel looked a little shabby. I was quite surprised by the room. The room was very clean. The only problem we had was when we went to shower the smell of the water was terrible. My 12 year old granddaughter did not want to get in the shower because of the smell. The office and the... More

I went there with my family and had a great time. I didn't have any problem with the reservations and So on. I have to disagree with the other comments. My husbands got along with the owner and we didn't hear him swear at all. Maybe when you guys called he was having a bad day. I would recommend going... More

I have stayed at the Huron Sands years before and had a wedding to attend this Aug. 2010. When I first contacted the motel, a lady took my call. She reported the motel was already fully booked up for that particular wknd, to which I then gave my contact info should a cancellation come up, I could then reserve a... More

We had the same experience as the other negative feedback. We also had to cancel and gave several days notice. The man who dealt our cancellation at the motel used several swear words and other negative comments. I am glad now that we cancelled.

We stayed here on a Sunday night, we didn't want to sleep in the rain as it poured all day and as our last night there just wanted a nice sleep and no trailer or tent, a motel room is just what we wanted.... I thought for $99 was a bit pricey for any hotel on the Island, especially for... More

I had made a reservation with this hotel, I hadn't stayed there yet, but someone told me it is just down the road from where I wanted to go. So I went on their website and it seemed fine enough for the area we were going. I called and made the reservation the man on the phone gave me all... More
