“A good spot for the weary traveller to recharge.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012 via mobile

This truck stop offers a bit of something for everyone. It's menu offers "à la carte" and buffet, for lunch and dinner. Prices are reasonable and senior discounting applies. If you prefer to eat on the run a snack bar is also situated at the entrance with many home cooked baked goods. The restaurant's decor has been getting a bit of refreshening with paint. Improvements of this nature only enhance its appeal. Service is friendly, and efficient. A larger tuck shop would be nice, one offering a greater assortment of unique items that might lure the curious passerby. Overall, a great experience!

“A Truckers Christmas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2011

North American Truckers choose Cornwall Ontario’s
Historic Fifth Wheel Travel Plaza!

Throughout the years, Cornwall’s magnificent land mark, The Fifth Wheel Travel Plaza
has proudly played host Ambassadors to many of North American Trucker who just haven’t been able to make it back in time to their own hometown for Christmas.

Even though the feeling of being so far away from family and friends during the festive Christmas holidays may be one of loneliness,
Cornwall’s Fifth Wheel Travel Plaza owner, Robert Short including his friendly and professional staff go out of their way to ensure laid over Truckers feel right at home by cheerfully decorating the Plaza with bright red ribbons, lots of Christmas garland and plenty of colorful lights.

Classical Christmas music, laughter and cheer can be heard all throughout the facilities accompanied always by the aromatic scents and smells of good old fashioned home cooked meals.

To go with their festive holiday decorations is the Fifth Wheel’s sincere willingness to do things proper and right so Truckers always have an extremely enjoyable and hassle free stay while in the Town of Cornwall during their Christmas lay over.

Nothing is forgotten or left aside as to meet the every need of Truckers during their Christmas stay with a Chaplain on sight for spiritual council and comfort.

The Town of Cornwall with its five star Fifth Wheel Travel Plaza is well recognized and
respected by the North American Trucking industry for it’s safe, clean, friendly and welcoming environment.

With the introduction of new mega Travel Centers all along highway 401, were deeply reminded that the beautiful and exceptional town of Cornwall Ontario, along with it’s famous and highly respected Fifth Wheel Travel Plaza
is still the number one stop over, a very favorite resting place for professional long haul Truckers from all over the continent!
\
Cornwall Ontario,… It’s a wonderful Town!

“Last of The great old fashion truck stops in Cornwall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

Cornwall Ontario's Fifth Wheel Travel Plaza or as we truckers call it our favourite Truck Stop along highway 401 with its friendly down home service and all you can eat Buffets is definiatly the last of these good old fashion Truck Stops where everyone is treated like family whether your a seasoned trucker or not!!
Management has an open door policy in effect where everyone is invited to pop in to share a comment or just to say hello!
Full fuel, gas and propane facilities, showers, secure overnight parking, Emergency Tire service on site, Emergency Medical Services ( Hospital ) just down the street, Visit Fifth Wheel's variety store and gift shop selling everything from snacks to clothing with what ever else you may need before heading back out on the road.
Highly recommended by our million miler international fleet of drivers and myself Richard E.Primeau, President and CEO of Buffalo Springfield Transport Inc.
Make Cornwall's Fifth Wheel Travel Plaza your next stop for a warm welcome, friendly smiles, a great meal and five star service!!..... We've been doing it for 27 years!
