“Terrible. Terrible. Terrible.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We stayed there for the wakestock weekend. They were very rude to us, and didn't respect our privacy. At night they just stood infront of our room and watched us so that we didnt try to get another person in our room. There was only 4 people allowed per room and no guests after 10. Wouldn't go back, and wouldn't recommend anyone who doesn't enjoy creepy people standing outside their rooms after 10pm until about 3am.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Me and my girlfriend stayed one night at this motel for a weekend getaway. It's located right on the highway with no stores/eating establishments in walking distance--a car is a must have. The family running the place on the weekends were very friendly. The room was clean (queen room #2) but very bland. I was happily surprised they included a mini-fridge and microwave in the room.

The main reason this motel lost a star for me was because of the shoddy security of the room. The doors have only a handle lock on it--no deadbolts--and the walls were paper thin. We were actually a bit nervous to fall asleep knowing that anyone who really wanted to get into our room could just easily kick the door down. I'm not a paranoid person but I would expect at least a deadbolt lock and a peephole for a place on the highway.

The access to the beach is a short walk away however there are plenty of signs everywhere saying 'private beach'. We were told by the front desk that they checked and the property lines of the beach-front cottages end at the sand so it's alright to use the beach. Even if that's true it was very uncomfortable being on the beach with these cottagers who stared at us with contempt. No one came up and asked us to leave--but they might as well have.

I think for the price the value can't be beat but the above mentioned tradeoffs will be why I won't stay there again.

At first I was skeptic because it was a motel. However, I can honestly say that it exceeded my expectations, and is better than some hotels I have stayed at in the past. The service was excellent the owners were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean all with a microwave and small fridge , there was a Pinic area, a BBQ grill and campfire. Overall, it was a great place at a low price. Although its 19 minute drive from the main beach it is much better than those closer to it .

Amazing family trip. We felt at home. The staff was friendly, quiet, and helpful. It has a family friendly environment. There was a bonfire with marshmallows which the kids loved. Rooms were quite, comfortable and clean. Thanks for a great stay.

While our room was small it was comfortable and clean. There is a play area for children and bbq's and picnic tables for guests use. Short drive to Wasaga Beach or Collingwood.
