the room was right out of 1972. Giant table lamp, vertical blinds, vinyl chair, rummage sale plastic flowers with too many garage sale paintings on the wall. I thought I was getting a queen with a fireplace but I guess those are upstairs only. Weird layout, sink and fridge in the room, toilet and shower in another. Folding chairs leaning... More

We booked most of the rooms, for a party of approx 50 people, for an overnight getaway reception on Sept 12, 2015. I had had a few over nights, so already had an idea of many of the rooms. They were very accommodating and allowed a tent to cover the cement patio space and a BBQ rental to be delivered... More

At the last minute, four of us (aduslts) ended up in the area to scuba dive. Originally looking to book two rooms. The owner showed us on of his cottages. The master had a king bed and was a suite on its own. The other two bedrooms were very nice. There was a dining area, living room and well appointed... More

Poor review given because it was not as advertised 'Luxury Resort Motel', I can see how other guests had a much more enjoyable time at this location, I think it depends on the room you get. It is a MOTEL! , there was nothing upscale about the room we were in. We attended a wedding and it was fun, the... More

I was prepared for funky or uneven. But I experienced too many lapses to let this go. Perhaps I had the worst room, #18. Lowest level, room's view obscured by dirty white plastic outdoor furniture (which I saw all over the property) and garbage pail, while other rooms had nicer plastic colored adirondack chairs. I felt like terrible stepchild. My... More

This property is very well run, clean and a few steps above the normal run-of-the-mill motel. We stayed here a couple of nights because our cottage was not ready when we had to visit Wiarton - and it was the best choice. The room had a jacuzzi tub and fridge. Missing is a microwave (I would have liked one in... More
