“Very Disappointing Experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Me and a group of my friends have stayed here a few times because of its convenient location to the main strip, but this past year is the last time. We paid way too much money for what we received. Our room came with only a couple towels for the whole weekend, no toilet paper until we asked for it. The balcony upstairs has rusted nails sticking out everywhere, 2 of my friends ripped their foot open on them the first night, one had to go to the hospital for stitches. Even the owner himself admitted the balcony was unstable and could not handle much weight. The shower leaked water all over the bathroom floor and the pipes in the kitchen sink leaked water as well. For the amount of money we spent on the room it would have been nice to have clean dry towels each day or the garbages changed out for us. Needless to say we will be looking elsewhere in the future for our summer getaways.

Room Tip: Don't waste your time or money on this place.

My husband and I decided to stay at villa nova and from the second we met Tony we knew we were in great hands! The rooms are spotless and Tony and his wife are always willing to do anything to make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable. We ended up inviting my parents to stay also and they felt the same way. We stayed a few different times and by the end of our first stay I was calling Tony and his wife Zio and Zia! We had the lovely pleasure of meeting their kids and again, fantastic people! I absolutely adore them and we are looking forward to staying there this year with our new baby girl.
Anyone who is writing anything bad about this place is nuts or had to have been rude to Tony. I saw him interacting with all kinds of people and he was always very friendly and professional.
The pool by the way is spotless! My dad is a professional pool guy and even he loved the pool so to anyone saying anything nasty about this place, you are all nuts!
This is the best place to stay for the money you spend.

We've been here more than 5 times. We go each year and everytime has been enjoyable. You get a fair quality for a fair price. The rooms are clean and you are 5 steps from the main strip. Tony has always welcomed us with open arms and does not hesitate to upgrade or give us a walk in rate (we go on off peak days to avoide the throngs of teenager partyers). I would not hesitate in suggesting Tonys Villa Nova to any friends and family.

Very conveniently located across Beach area. Modest but has everything you need, after all we did not come to watch TV or just sit in a room. You can always ask Tony for extras. Rooms are basic but comfortable. Spacious bathroom.

I stayed here this past Friday with my husband and another couple. We competed in the Wasaga Triathlon and it was perfectly located for that event. We are so excited about our find that we will be coming back often next summer for the beach! It's pretty much "on top" of Beach 1. I think the negative reviews on this site must have something to do with people not managing their expectations!!! This is a MOTEL. It was clean and the owners were so courteous and welcoming but it is no frills.

Tony, the owner (and his son I think), even cheered us on during the triathlon.

If you want a fun, clean, simple place to sleep while you hang out at the beach. Stay here!! Tony, the owner is a sweetheart.

Tips:
1. Some rooms facing the main road may be a little noisy at night.
2. Our room was not huge. Pack lightly or ask for one of the rooms with a common area.
3. There were enough towels for four adults to dry off and wash up after a very wet triathlon!! But bringing your own would help for the beach.
4. Embrace the quaint!! This is a humble motel in a beach town... lighten up people!

this place was nice and clean, it smelled so fresh and "owners are very nice" , helpful for finding good restaurants to eat at, that did cost a lot and it was great food ... i would recommend it, close to the beach, to walk their ..
we liked the deck upstairs , and we liked that they made coffee first thing in the morning and it was free . we felt very welcomed.
i asked for another pillow and the housekeeper got to us no problems, she was very nice too .
i see some (poor ratings ) i really feel these others are wrong , to say poor .....
***my husband and i enjoyed our stay, and we are people that like to stay somewhere nice and will be back their again ,
A BIG THANK-YOU TO TONY ! and thank you to his wife ,,VERY NICE PEOPLE !
