I'm finally back at the motel after a long first semester.The owner has been busy; there is new hardwood in all rooms, fresh paint, and new fixtures. It is always quiet, and the staff is friendly as curteous. I am very happy to be back. This is my preferred motel while I am in the Sault attending college.

Stayed here as part of a 3 day Agawa Canyon train tour package. Outwardly place looks very run down but the staff were friendly and helpful and the room was very clean.

The room was adequate and priced appropriately. The owners have been working on updates and it was apparent so give them a thumbs up for that. Convenient location for restaurants etc. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Was ok, but smelled really musty. An older motel, but seemed to be looked after ok. Grounds were neat and tidy, room was clean. Was ok for the price, and staff were friendly. Bed was comfortable, room was small and bathroom was a bit tight, but overall an average place.

Spent a quick overnight here.The room was renovated and provided everything that is needed and was more than adequate.. The problem was the smokers. While the rooms are clearly labelled non smoking, our neighbour seemed to be smoking in the room, and others smoked outside the rooms. When our door was opened, the smell of smoke quickly filled the room.... More

I've stayed at various motels/hotels in the Soo for +20yrs. This one is my favorite. The staff tries hard to get everything right; the amenities, the cleanliness, the service level and the price. I also like how it is conveniently located off of hwy 17. It is tucked back enough that you can't really hear the sound of the trucks... More

We were there. The staff were decent, the rooms were clean and the price was reasonable. Passing through town without the family and it may be a good option. The rooms were mostly updated. It was obvious that work was done recently and is on going.
