This is the second time we have stayed here, its clean and good value for money, staff are pleasant and welcoming, breakfast good but choice reduced since the last time we stayed here. The rooms are cosy but have all you need and clean and tidy, overall for the price you cant go wrong staying here. The Mad Musher a... More

We stayed for 3 nights and even though the weather was not the greatest we had a fantastic time. The family who owns and runs the motel are so friendly and pleasant. We enjoyed having our breakfast in their dining area and how they had a fire pit available for our us to enjoy in the evenings. So close to... More

This is a motel and nothing more. They do have a "breakfast" restaurant with good food. The place is older but kept up nicely. Room was clean and nice smelling. Smallish bathroom but good water pressure. Convenient for a quick day trip into Algonquin Park to visit friends there. Would stay there again if in the area.

The price is right. Rooms are very basic but clean. Recently stayed there two nights a week apart. Both times, the beds were comfortable but tended to squeak when you moved on them. Staff was very pleasant and welcoming. Breakfast was a great bargain and well done. First week the internet was not working and that was frustrating. That was... More

The room was clean and basic. Shower was good. Free wifi available All you expect from a motel. The hosts were very friendly. There is a possibility to have breakfast. We had one and were very pleased. This motel is a good starting point for hikes in the Algonquin Provincial Park.

The staff there are friendly. It's a homey, family-based atmosphere. I got to meet their grandson and daughters. I was able to crash that night and depart early for a water taxi to Lake Opeongo. They're close to Algonquin Park. The breakfasts and hot coffee was reasonably affordable and greatly appreciated in the morning. David Kay's landscape paintings, his photos... More

The room was clean, comfortable and quiet; very basic. The only problem I had was there was no coffee maker. The motel served breakfast starting at 8 am, but my husband and I wanted to be out around 7:30, and the area restaurants were not open until 8 am also. I would recommend the motel purchase small coffee makers for... More

We stay at the East Gate the night before we are off to canoe in the back country of Algonquin Park. The cabin and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The retro ambiance is unpretentious, homey and welcoming - that's what I really love about the place. The staff is unfailingly helpful and polite and the cost very reasonable.
