“Not awful....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Stayed here for thee nights in July. Hotel lobby and hallways have a horrible smell, but the room was large and for the most part, clean. Bed was comfortable and room came with a mini fridge and microwave.

Great value! What more do you need? Room was very clean. Big bathroom with great water pressure for the shower and all the extra shampoos, hair dryer, etc. you sometimes don't find. Also appreciated the breakfast which was more than we expected. Very good. The pool and spa were nice and plenty of towels there and in your room. Quiet and relaxing. We stayed to visit the Soo Locks. This Hotel made our trip perfect. Thanks staff!

Got a great walk-in price(matched competitor down the road). Room was very clean and remodeled. Bathroom was beautiful. Beds very comfortable. Breakfast was on third floor which was odd to me, But it was good. My only complaint would be the hot tub and pool. Very dirty! No power in he jets in hot tub at all. Dead skin floating in it!! Cloudy cloudy cloudy! Didn't even step into the pool after experiencing the hot tub.

When this hotel opened a few years ago it was a Hampton Inn, a chain where a traveler can almost never go wrong. For some reason, Hampton pulled out of the Soo market a couple of years ago and this property under different management is now looking a bit rough around the edges for lack of basic maintenance. Unfortunately, they are still charging Hampton-like prices without the same commitment to quality that goes along with those higher prices. Breakfast is included with your room and starts at 6:00AM. When we went in for breakfast at 6:30AM the egg and meat dishes were already empty and there was no staff around for the better part of 20 to 25 minutes to replenish the missing items. Short-staffing at breakfast causes delays and is a bad sign. It is a sure sign of decline! Supposedly, this hotel is to undergo a major renovation later this year and become a Hampton Inn once again. Let's hope so.

This hotel is great value for the money! When checking in the staff is very nice and friendly, the rooms are spacious and clean with very comfortable beds. The continental breakfast was great too. One thing I appreciated was the fridge and microwave in the room, this seems to be something you have to beg for at other hotels these days. I would definitely recommend this place.

Pleasant room, basic amenities. Short drive from the Soo Locks and nice to get away from the touristy area. Quiet, clean.Basic breakfast included. Price is right and staff was friendly. Can't go wrong.

We stopped in to check out this motel and decided to book a room. We were touring the area and the front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. They gave us great advice on eateries. The room was fine - clean with comfortable beds. I'd recommend this reasonably-priced place to others.
