If you need to get a good sleep for the night and a hot shower in the morning this is the place for you. Call them directly and reserve, you may get a better deal. No real view to anything, unless you like watching cars pass by.

After reading reviews decided to try. What a surprise. Just of Hwy and easy access. Rooms are newly renovated, clean and well appointed. We were in wing that did not face Hwy 1 and was quite quiet. Rate can not be beat.

Location was good, Easy access. 5 buck taxi ride to downtown. Clean and tidy, Friendly staff. Room was a good size for myself. Felt like I was home. Good price for the weekend. Will come back in the future.

The price per night is good and the staff is very welcoming. However, if you need a long term place, look elsewhere. The rooms are clean and in our unit we had a fridge, stove, microwave, and coffee maker. Overall, if you're looking for a night stop, it's pretty good.

I took a chance with a little known establishment rather than a big conglomerate. I wanted a reasonable price, clean, well maintained and quiet. They provided all of the above. Noisy during the day because it is right on the No. 1 but much quieter as traffic subsides. Very comfortable bed.

Loved the authentic 60s styling, although the rooms were rennovated in the 90s. Very big clean hotel style room, good hot shower, comfy bed, excellent value. Exactly what we needed for a one night stop over!

I found that the outside of the motel didn't look the greatest but I was pleasantly surprised to the cleanliness of the suite I was given. Spoke with the proprietress, she was very friendly. Showed me the room prior to me actually paying for. The suite was clean as was the washroom, the kitchen counter, the sheets to the bed... More

We have stayed 4 times at the Satellite Motel. When Peter and his wife were running the place, it was clean. The last time we stayed, the motel was under new ownership and it was terrible. The remote was not to be found, the fridge was dirty. The walls were dirty. The floor, it too was really dirty. The new... More

Great place to stay, our ground floor room was clean and quiet. I appreciated having lawnchairs outside our door. There's a patch of grass in the parking lot, nice spot to sit and read in the lawnchair. Owner was friendly. We woke up very early so left before the breakfast was put out. Easy access from the highway.

Very convenient to the TransCanada Highway. GM Peter Shin was very accommodating (pardon the pun). The two minor problems we had were handled promptly. The room was relatively small but tastefully furnished and clean. There is a continental breakfast offered. The motel is a favourite of workers to the area (no doubt the price) so I would suggest booking early.
