Made a reservation on Booking.com. We were looking for a place under 100$ on the way home from Toronto. Being a small business owner myself I always try to find these 'Mom and Pop' type of oporations...more often then not I am pleasently surprised, as I was this evening!
Check in was a breeze, even with a late arrival! The owner was on hand with a quick rattle of the door and eager to serve. A very pleasant gentleman who was even good enough to provide me with a bag of ice when inquired as to whether or not there was an ice machine....a cold beer after a long drive is always nice :). The room though basic is well equiped and has been offered some recent tender loving care. It appears there was a new flat screen television, new washroom fixtures and ceramic floor, new bed linens, and new draperies all topped off with a fresh coat of paint. Its amazing how the small esthetic things can affect your perception! Beds are very comfortable and the staellite tv was nice to unwind with. The bathrrom could have been better satocked with some conditioner and a second travel sized bar of soap but I understand these things cost money :). All in all this place far exceeded my expectations! I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for a clean, renovated, comfortable and welcoming place to stay. To the owners, you deserve recognition! A small business in the north is a hard go and you folks are doing an excellent job! Keep up the good work, looking forward to our next stay!
