For the price of this motel we were expecting something a tad nicer but this motel is literally right off the Trans Canada Highway (TCH) so needless to say, our room was extremely noisy. We could hear each and every vehicle that drove by so it was hard to sleep with the noise. The other big issue we had was the mosquitoes. There were several mosquitoes in our room and every time we opened the door (to go to the car or get breakfast, etc), more bugs came in. We were up until midnight trying to kill the bugs in our room.
The king bed was fine and the bathroom was fine although dated. They provide body lotion, shampoo, conditioner and bar soap as well as a make-up remover wipe but no shower cap. There is also no fan in the bathroom nor window.
We had a suite so there was a mini fridge and a microwave as well as a couch and two TV's -- why we needed two TV's, I don't know but the more the merrier.
The continental breakfast was a good deal as it had hard boiled eggs, coffee, tea, toast, and yogurt.
The woman at the front desk (I believe her name is Karen) is extremely friendly and nice.
Potential guests should keep in mind that this is a motel that is right off the highway (e.g. next to Jungle Jims and near a gas station) so it's noisy. We only stayed there as a pit stop on the way to Gros Morne since the drive from St. John's was so long.
