Advertised as a "boutique" hotel...it's an old 2-story motel that has been gutted and remodeled. They have done a good job. But the rooms are SMALL. Bathroom is small. Laminate floors nice for pets - no nasty carpets. Beds are comfy. Place looks good and it is CLEAN. A/C worked well. Staff very friendly and accomodating. Pet friendly too. We... More

Easy and convenient right off 1, the staff were very helpful and friendly and was convenient for traveling with a gas station next door and many restaurants nearby. We were... More

This motel seems being renovated with good taste. I'm impressed by its clean room and quality free breakfast. My only complaint is the tiny shower room, which I've only seen the dame size in some Tokyo hotels. You need to squeeze into the shower room door just next to a toilet.

After a 14 hour drive we just needed a good night's sleep in a clean, comfortable and pet friendly room. It was Canada Day and the Bombers were at McMahon, so the pickings were slim. After steering clear of the David Lynch special, we found the Centro. What a gem. It's cute and its cozy and the staff were friendly,... More
