After checking into this hotel and seeing the state of the room I decided to read the reviews on tripadvisor. A bit backwards I know, but we were traveling and didn't have internet. All the comments about bed bugs had me feeling like I should have spent the extra $10 and stayed at the Queen Motel on the highway. I'm happy to report we manage to get a room without bed bugs but the condition of the carpet was terrible. There were stains throughout the room. The shower and other bathroom fixtures were very clean, thankfully!!! The condition of the rest of the building is terrible. The halls are dark, the carpet, paint etc. very old....the whole motel is very TIRED to say the least!!! I will not be staying in this hotel again. Take my advice, stop at a McDonald's or Tim Horton, use their internet and check tripadvisor, once you know which city you will be staying in at the end of a day's travel...that is exactly what I will be doing in the future.
