Booked a single room through an online service for a weekend outing in Owen Sound. Music festival was on (not the event i was going to) so all closer properties were either sold out or had exorbitant rates. Room was smallish, comfortable and well-equipped. Bedding has seen many washers and dryers but was adequate. Room has electric heat (not on... More

I was competing at an equestrian competition three minutes drive from the hotel. I appreciated the quick check-in and paying in advance, as I had to leave at 6:30 a.m. to go to my competition. It's a very basic motel and I had a room with a queen size bed that was quite small but great for one. There was... More

The room was clean and the rates were very economical which was appealing to us so we had no real complaints. We knew that this was an older motel so the expectations were not high. Was okay for a one or two night stay.

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

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
