Let me start with a positive....the bed was comfortable...but it was like it was being built and not finished. Felt like a summer camp bunkie...unfinished wood....open duct work and rough u finished closet ... Have had a lot better for the price I paid for this place....and then confusion in the morning if the room had been paid for or... More

Renovated rooms with newly renovated bathrooms, I've slept here a couple of times and it was great! Being so close to great venues, who wouldn't?! Clean, cozy and quiet. (Ask for the optional gas fireplace.) The bed was so comfortable that it inspired us to purchase a new king for our own place! Includes free WiFi and a free breakfast... More

The motel was fairly clean, but there's a great difference in quality between the newly renovated rooms and the never renovated, '60s era rooms, both of which cost the same price! By chance I was booked into one of the older rooms and my friend, who made her reservation much later than I did, in a newer room. I could... More

Great value for the price. Had a king-size bed. Slept with the patio doors open. Room was clean. The only minor problem was not receiving my coupon for breakfast the next morning when I checked in. Definitely would stay anytime.

This place has some mixed reviews but my friend and I really enjoyed it. It has its charms for sure, but the beds were clean and comfortable and the room was quiet and cozy. We were in town to catch a show at the Black Sheep and the motel was very conveniently located. We certainly got what we paid for.... More

I stayed here while attending and event in Wakefield. I was on the top floor. Clean and very adequate for what I was looking for. I found that the price was a little high for the room but the location was exactly perfect for me. Staff were friendly and helpful. Tip: bring a hair dryer Walking distance to downtown was... More

Not the most modern rooms but they are clean and have character. Great for a quick weekend getaway from ottawa. You'll really feel as though you have left the city and stepped into a charming 70s rustic Swiss ski lodge

We had a pleasant one night stay on a bitterly cold night. The king bed was awesome as well as the in room stove. It's not a fancy place but was quite comfortable. We had a great breakfast the following day. I would recommend this accommodation for a relatively inexpensive stay.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night in July because the Spartan Race website recommended it as "close to the location of the race". That was ALL this motel/hotel has going for it. Pros: location to the mountain. This was the closest we were going to get. Next time I will stay in Ottawa or Gatineau... Somewhat clean.... More
