Please keep in mind this is an OLD motel, and I have rated it as such! I thought it was quite good. Microwave, mini fridge, wifi, and tv. We stayed in Unit 14 and it had a security chain plus a working lock so maybe all the other units have security chains now? Unit 14 is the end unit and... More

I stayed once and only once! My husband has stayed afew times, he thinks it's ok. Myself, not so much! It's old, clean, very basic, bed, small fridge, microwave & TV. It's ok for a night, what do you want for $65? You get what you pay for! Guess that's why more guys are willing to stay there, it cheap... More

Typical old style Motor Inn. Had unit 12 which was large (2 double beds and a single bed). Carpets were dirty (bring slippers). Microwave, fridge, air conditioner and working TV were handy. The front staff were extremely friendly. The room smelled stale and dingy but the sheets (thin, 10 count maybe!) were clean. Didn't see any bugs...and I looked... Only... More

We were looking last minute for 2 rooms in the area and didn't want to spend over $100....This is a very very old property....I wasn't expecting much and it was perhaps even below my expectations. The exterior appears to have been painted with a new roof so exterior looks OK. Rooms are really tiny. Furniture is really old, bed was... More

This place is a proof that you cannot believe webpages for a motel/ hotel. We had to go to a wedding in a little town nearby and wanted to stay close - so we booked it on the web ( there was nothing else in this town)....a big mistake. All for $99 Canadian.... Rooms were small and with shabby, dilapidated... More

As a student I am trying to safe money, went with a couple of friends, the staff was friendly and nice, not to expensive. Room was nothing fancy but was clean and the tv, fridge and microwave was good, useful. Perfect location next to food land. Good place for people on a budget.

I booked 2 days in advance, and advised we would arrive between 7 & 8pm, arrived at 7:35 pm to a freezing cold room, the lady at the front desk went to the room with me to turn the heat on. It was -18C outside, and the room didn't feel much warmer. Took over an hour before I could take... More

Yea, it's not great but there isn't much choice in Thornbury. Price was right, sheets were clean. Wouldn't spend more than a night but when pressed, it'll do. Spent a day in the rain on a motorcycle so it was good enough. Sure, I wouldn't have paid the last guy who painted the place, the tub needs to be re-enamelled... More
