We needed an overnight for 2 adults, one tween and a busy 1 year old Brittany (dog). We arrived to a spotless room with all the fittings: good comfy beds, abundance of hotwater, TV which pulled in a lot of channels. Even a microwave, coffee maker and mini fridge were included in there. The walls had a whimsical hand painted... More

This place was OK, but not great. It wasn't filthy, but could have been cleaner. There were a few dead moths that had dried and stuck to the counter in the bathroom. The room itself was relatively clean but the bathroom wasn't the cleanest. Also, as soon as we walked into the room there were already many bugs (a few... More

A buddy and I have been been to this motel multiple times over the past few winters, very nice clean rooms, great location, not to far from the snowmobile trail, and the owners are awesome, always enjoy heading back up to see Mel and his family! Corey

Stayed here in the fall of 2013. Was intrigued by the funky hand painted décor. Owners very friendly and helpful, and the motel provided clean, spacious rooms and very comfy beds. It was convenient to have fridge and microwave in the room. Would stay again.

Good value. Friendly owners, kept very clean. Three BBQs available for use. Fridge and micro in rooms. Internet worked most of the time. Had to go to office a couple of times to have them reset it. We there for three weeks for work.

We arrived very late, retrieved the key from the office, and were awed by the feel of the place. From the bikes on the roof, to the painted rainbow above the office door, and groovy glass beads, plus beautiful murals inside the room. We stared at a grizzly bear from our bed, and there was a black bear somewhere else... More
