“Excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

My husband and I stay in motels almost exclusively and we love the unpredictability of them in terms of decor and facilities. This motel is so sweet - 70s-style mural above the bed, with charming present-day South East Asian-influenced ceiling decorating, fake flowers and plants in the room (unusual for a motel and very pretty), 70s yellow bathtub with not the best caulking job, which just adds to the charm as far as we're concerned. Spotlessly clean, with comfy beds, and enough covers for winter without having to hunt for an extra blanket. Owner very pleasant and they take the time to fold up the bathmat to make a little pocket for your facecloths. Good fast wi fi. Better tv than most motels (flat screen). Right across from a 24 hour grocer and an LCBO, and just down the road from Hasty Tasty Diner (also recommended). We stayed for two nights and it was perfect for us.

Room Tip: If you'll be in your room during the day, ask for a room that is not number 8. Number 8 is righ...

Having never had a motel experience, we got all that we expected, but in a good way. It's a perfectly fine place to sleep if you want to do just that after hiking all day.
The place certainly is scruffy, but very clean, the mattresses were comfy, the internet was actually high speed (when compared to other places that made the same claim during our holiday).
The owner is a legend, he's very helpful and we did not expect the guests to be so warm and friendly.

This little motel is fine for one or two nights if you want a cheap place to lay your head if you're doing an overnighter at Casino Rama or just passing through. It was clean and quiet. The decor is a bit dated and I think the little soap bars were actually from the 70s, but it served it's purpose. The wi-fi was very weak at our end of the motel but if we walked closer to the main office, it got stronger. It's a quick walk to the beer store and convenience store. About a 20 minute drive to the casino. We sat outside on some plastic chairs in front of our door for a bit and enjoyed the night air.
Nothing special, but perfectly adequate.

Room Tip: If you need wifi, ask to be closer to the main office.
