We had room 28, on the ground floor, looking over the lake and harbour. The room was small, with one double bed. A fridge and coffee maker were provided. An a/c unit was installed, but the filter was clogged and needed a lot of cleaning. The electrical safety of the room is dubious. The receptacles are old, worn and two... More

Good location on the river and near the lake and across the road from the downtown area. Small basic room, clean and comfortable and fine for a relaxing stop between Sault Ste. Marie and Toronto. Very friendly, helpful staff and nice walk across the lawn down to the river and lake.

Although the price was okay, I wouldn't think of staying there again. The hotel is a bit dated and needs an upgrade. Our room was very small. It had been painted but the door needed painting. Very noisy as well. Train came by at night and woke me up. You could also hear the people above you as they walked... More

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
