4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2009

Nice people running a basic-but-clean motel. Perfect if you're passing through or, as we were, briefly visiting relatives. Even has a small pool.

Check out Tammy's Country Kitchen opposite for a cheap and cheerful breakfast.

Our family had to make a trip to Napanee and needed accommodations. There were roughly 6 motels in the area that I googled and settled on the Fox Motor Inn. I made a good choice compared to the other motels that we passed in the area. The rooms smelled clean and fresh with new carpetting. The bathroom was very clean!! The air conditioner was newer and ran very well. The convenience of the microwave and fridge was great with our young children. The pool was an added bonus for the kids and we could sit outside and enjoy the nice night with friends and family. You can't do that in a high rise hotel. All in all I was impressed with the accommodations and would stay there again.

We go up to Napanee from Pennsylvania twice a year to visit with my ederly Aunt and Uncle. So as not to over burdon them we always stay at The Fox Motor Inn on Dundas Street.
This family run Inn has ALWAYS had clean rooms as far as we know, we have never had a problem anyway and the benefit of the small microwave, small coffee maker, t.v. small basic dining table and chairs plus a fridge is more than some Hotels provide. They even have a pool during the summer months.
They provide smoking and non-smoking rooms and every time we go up, they have replaced or upgraded something, so we have always felt that it's not a case of take the money and run.
The owner's have always been chatty and helpful and I can highly recommend the Restaurant across the road for your breakfast or Evening meal, as there is very very basic provision in the Inn's tiny reception. Continental Breakfast as such is toast and coffee (I think).
It is now March 2009 and we paid $75:90 (Canadian) per night, Inclusive of Tax. Please remember, this is a Motel/Inn and not The Ritz.
Thank you again Fox Motor Inn. See you again soon.

I came with my wife to stay for a night, and I was not content with the room. I was expecting a cleaner room with a nicer staff, however I was disappointed.
I would not recommend this place to a friend.

This is a great little place. The overall ambience is typical motel, but several surprisingly good aspects made it above average. The recently updated bathroom was sparkling clean and attractive. Windows open on both sides of the unit. There was a large bar fridge with freezer compartment and a microwave, which is more than you'd get at most hotels. Very comfortable, new mattresses, as good as any hotel. A flat screen TV. And the staff could not have been nicer. Although I do not think they have non-smoking rooms, there was no smoky smell. We had a very good sleep.

I would stay again when travelling this way.
