Glad we decided on this motel over the other one in town. This place was right on the lake. Had some cool train tracks and a bridge right behind it. A scenic beach and peaceful park right outside your door. I always prefer this kind of motel where each room has an outside patio door opposed to an interior entrance... More

We stayed here with my girlfriend on our drive across Ontario (nothing much to see after Sudbury, be warned) and was very pleasantly surprised with this motel. We found it online, since it was getting late, needed a place for the night. The motel building is quite large, lots of parking, right off Highway 1. The owner worked at the... More

Everything was unplugged except the TV. Window unit A/C ran all night to cool room. Non-smoker room converted from smoker's room. You get what you pay for. I would have rather paid 40 dollars more and had a better nights stay.

The lady at the front desk greeted me with a smile. The room was clean, modest, and had all the amenities I needed. The ONLY thing that I didn't like was the fact that I could get no internet service whatsoever. I was told that it might be "touch and go"; but, the whole time I could not get any... More

I have stayed here for business and pleasure. I have been here for company golf tournaments, ice fishing weekends and for business in the area. Always a good stay. Friendly owners and staff. Close to downtown. Rooms are modest and always clean.

We stopped in here for 2 nights along checking in the front desk guy didn't seem that happy and when we got to the room saw that it was VERY cramped. Wifi hardly worked. No lock on the bathroom door and room fridge would not work.Aside from the river view from the top balcony it really had nothing else going... More

I stayed here for a work convention in August 2014 and I found that for the price you pay, it isn't that bad of a motel. Yeah, it is right beside the train tracks. You would notice this as you pull into the parking lot and it is also right on the water. Aside from it being old and worn... More

We stayed here last night and was highly disappointed. There were 10-15 hairs on the floor of the bathroom. We got into bed and there was sand and gritty stuff between the sheets. also beware, the motel is right next to the train tracks. The train came by in the middle of the night and work all of us up.... More

Well, you win some and you lose some when you are traveling on a tight budget and this is definitely in the later category. The Old Mill is definitely outdated and for me its only redeeming qualities were that it was clean and the bed was surprisingly comfortable. Otherwise it still needs a facelift.

The Old Mill is right on the River. Very pretty location and we were glad we booked ahead as the hotel looked to be almost full. Our unit over looked the lake and the sandy beach. We went for a walk on the shore and met many travellers doing the same thing. The room was large, the bed comfy including... More
