This family-run at-door motel is currently called Knights Inn, but I'm posting this review under The Gables as that's what everyone calls it (and, as the arrangement with Wyndham is only for a year, it's always possible the name may once again change back to The Gables). It's an older motel, but my room was large and excellently maintained; the bathroom too was quite large though there was no tub, only a shower (no problem as far as I was concerned). There was a fridge and microwave in the room, and they lent me an ethernet cable which allowed me to work at a convenient desk. (Half of the rooms have wireless, half ethernet; ask about this, if it's an issue for you.) There's no breakfast - not surprising for $60 including tax - but there's a Tim's a block away and, right next door, there's a diner-style restaurant with a good atmosphere. (I ate there last night.) The location is on a main road but the rooms are quiet, and the motel is easy to reach from the 402. To sum up: I felt I was getting excellent value without having to surrender comfort or cleanliness. Arriving on a rainy night and looking at The Gables' modest exterior I wondered if I'd made the right choice, but it turned out that staying here was an object lesson in not judging a book (or, in this case, a motel) by its cover.
