“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Our family visited North Bay in Jan and stayed at this motel after 5 years. What a difference. Front office and rooms are all newly renovated, very clean, quiet area, fresh continental breakfast, new owners are very friendly and welcoming. We like to support the little guy and this family run business fits that criteria. Stay was definitely worth the money we paid for it. We'll recommend this place to anyone.

I really like the service and attitude of the motel management. Rooms are clean and up dated. Complimentary breakfast is excellent. This place is very close to downtown and Nipissing lake beach. I recommend this motel for singles and families.

Arriving from southern Ontario after being harassed, robbed and left homeless; my hope was to go north for some peace and quiet. Arriving by bus at North Bay in the early evening, our hosts Jeevan, Mona and their children greeted me in the office providing both an exceptional weekly rate and relief from anxiety.

The rooms are clean with many upgrades and it is clear the new owners have put their hearts into renovating this park. All requests were greeted with a quick response and courteous service. It is truly a diamond in the rough and I will be back to see the progress.

Witness spectacular sunsets on Lake Nipissing from the beach and park across the highway or take advantage of the many restaurants and mall within walking distance. You will not be disappointed whether hotelling, camping or trailering.

Tell them Robbie (a Veteran) sent you, and be sure to enjoy your stay...

Room Tip: Rooms on the lake side have a spectacular view

Simply but wide rooms, good manners and willingness of the owners. We had a big problem whith our car and the owners help us in a sublime way. The location of the motel is near the lakeshore and there are many restaurants in the neighbourhood.

Stayed one night on our way from Ottawa to Sudbury. Looks nice on pictures, well trust me, the place is a dump. Small rooms, extremely dirty carpets, and unfriendly staff! Must say location was good, many restaurants within walking distance. Never return!!!

My wife and I just spent our first anniversary tenting in the park area. We really enjoyed our stay. Lots of RV's around, but the people were very friendly and one gentleman even offered to let us use his gazebo to cook and eat in if it was raining. Other than the traffic from Lakeshore Blvd. it was a quiet place ( it's in the middle of the city, deal with it ) The washrooms and pool were cleaned on a regular basis and the owners were very friendly. Small convenience store on-site but two minute walk to 24-hour grocery store. Minutes to multiple beach sites, Timmies, beer and liquor stores. At $25 a night to tent ( with hydro and water access ). I'm not gonna complain. Will go again.
