5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

If you're looking for quality, cleanliness and great location, this is where you want to stay. After staying in a couple other locations on our holidays, we were able to make comparisons. This was the most reasonably priced and most comfortable motel room we stayed at. The rooms were very clean and included a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, dvd player, air conditioning, hair dryer and more. The shampoos and soaps were some of the nicest I've used from motels as well. There were also a lot of desk/dresser counters and a lot of counter space around the bathroom sink (something that is lacking in most places). The owners are very friendly and there to make your stay a pleasant experience. It was also great to back our car up to our room and unload. There were chairs outside the room you can relax in on a beautiful day or evening. It's close to many food establishments if you enjoy walking. If you're looking for excursions around the area, the owners are very knowledgeable about what's happening in the area.

Dean. Is. The. Man. Seriously. We have been researching a snowmobiling trip via the Agawa Canyon Snow Train for years. We came across Dean's site while searching for more information. Dean has several trips to select from. He set up our Ontario trail permit, the train tickets, and four nights lodging - two nights at different places other than his own. He was a wealth of information for both Sault Ste Marie and what to expect while snowmobiling. When we left his office, we had a packet of maps and a head full of tips. We stayed two night at the Catalina - our first and last nights of the trip. The rooms were exceptionally clean - the shower was blinding white. Beds were comfortable. There was a fridge and microwave in each room. Free wifi. We walked down the road for supper and breakfast as there were many places to select from. Thank you, Dean, for a wonderful, memorable trip!

This was a clean comfortable motel. The owners were friendly and very helpful. Gave out printed directions (with return to motel directions) to various sites and suggested nearby restaurants. My friend thought maybe it smelled a bit musty. I thought it was fine. Bed was really comfortable. I loved the massaging shower. Had a fridge in the room which is always helpful.
I would definitely stay at the Catalina again.

Room Tip: This motel does not have some of the extras, pool, breakfast etc. All rooms are on one level and it...

Very clean rooms and friendly owners that obviously take pride in their establishment. With 2 kids under age 4 it was very convenient to be able to back the van right up to our room and a breeze to unload. Reasonable rates with plenty of ammenities nearby (restaurants, pharmacies etc.).

I highly recommend this motel. It was clean, cute and inviting. I stayed for 2 nights on my way up to Thunder Bay and went back for a night on my way back down. Very reasonable rates. The staff are very helpful and freindly. I will go back there again!

We were shown the room first. The check-in was fast and efficient. The owner was very friendly. The room was nothing fancy, but nice and clean, very comfortable bed. Hair dryer was appreciated. Close to restaurants and main road so we could resume our journey early. We would definitely stay here again as it is so reasonable in price.
