This is Wasaga Beach so you should know what you are getting into when you go there. In the summer this is a party beach with young people coming to have some fun (often in large groups). The location is great. The kids could walk to the beach in the evening (too far to lug all your stuff to the beach during the day). You can walk to mini golf, to get ice cream, etc.
The room was clean and neat. The bathroom had towels, soap, shampoo. The room had a microwave and a mini fridge which were very useful. The room also had a TV but didn't appear to have cable so we didn't get any channels. In any case the kids just watched the movies we brought for their DVD player.
The breakfast was honeybuns (individually packaged) and juice boxes. There was also coffee and tea. The pool was awesome. It was heated and we felt like it was our own private pool. The kids were allowed to bring in their inflatable boats. The hotel was not busy during the week so it was quiet and nice with a few other families with kids. Beside the pool there is a very nice and clean little playground for the kids. There are several picnic tables and BBQs which is where we made our dinner. They supply the lighter, propane and tongs for the BBQ.
Some obnoxious people decided to light fireworks at about 2am in the empty field behind the motel. This woke us up as they were hooting and hollering as well.... but it's Wasaga Beach so this type of thing didn't surprise us. The beds were 2 doubles and with kids who squirm and kick you all night long queen size would have been better.
The room had air conditioning but we didn't use it. To turn it on/off it appears you have to plug it in or unplug it. We just used the ceiling fan and that was good enough for us.
The room was clean with no bugs except if you left food out and then a few ants would come and swarm. Just make sure all your food is in tight containers, in your car or in the fridge. We made sure to toss all our food garbage in the outdoor garbage cans.
We will likely stay here again next year. The pool is a real bonus feature with kids who can't seem to get enough swimming done in a day. I also like motels because you can drive your car right up to your front door so if you have a ton of crap you can go in and out of your car easily to get it.
