I managed to book a room for two nights, for two people for only $100 on booking.com, which I thought was quite a sweet deal.
My booking confirmation also said that the 13% HST and 3% hotel taxes are exempt. However, when we got there, we ended up having to pay these taxes anyway, the manager didn't care what was on the booking confirmation.
The room was quite clean, no complaints there.
As with most motels, there was parking right outside our door.
We didn't have a chance to use the pool, but it looked quite nice.
Before we left on the first day, I requested that we not have a maid come in to clean our room, as we do not require clean towels if staying only for two nights.
Much to our disappointment, the door to our room had been left open when we returned, which seemed very irresponsible. Nevertheless, the towels had been changed, plus other signs that there had been a housekeeper present were evident.
Fortunately we had taken all our valuable electronic goods with us, jewelery was hidden away just in case.
When I asked the manager about this, he was apologetic, saying he had been dealing with some personal issues and that it slipped his mind, blah blah.
The idea that there was the potential of having my lovely day spoiled by being robbed is very irritating, even now.
Overall the motel itself was quite alright.
