Rent og trivelig. Vi ble godt mottatt. Det utendørs svømmebassenget kunne vært bedre ettersett. God kontinental frokost. Clean and pleasant. We were well received. The outdoor pool could have been better looked after.

Although on the pictures it doesn't look very nice, in reality it is better (often it is the other way around). Rooms are large, wifi is good. Breakfast is really nice compared to the Canadian average in this price class.

Great little clean spot, and these guys even fulfilled my request for a "note from Santa" for my 3-year-old son. Was waiting on the pillow. Made his whole trip and is now a treasured possession at home!

I stayed here with my two kids under age 5, my husband and his parents. We had two rooms and the manager was so accommodating by making sure my inlaws were in a room close by. The highlight of this motel other than the cleanliness, service and location is the pool. One perk was the outdoor pool. It is so... More
