We were a little unsure about this motel until we arrived. The front staff was so friendly. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable, it is an older motel but works well for overnight travelers to stay. The Bannock Shack beside it is also very goo.

Great place if you need an affordable place for a night! Very clean room, and friendly staff. We arrived pretty late in the evening (about 11:30pm) and they were able to accommodate us. Affordable rate ($80/night). Would stay here again on our way through the Soo!

This is the second year we've stayed at this motel. What can i say? The rates are reasonable, staff is helpful and freindly, and the hotel rooms are clean and comfortable. If you are looking for modern or fancy, then it may not be for you... but otherwise a great little motel!

Quite basic, but that's what you get in this price range. Would have liked more than a pillow apiece, but, again, you get what you pay for. We'd use it again if we need minimum accommodation for a road trip.

This little motel is a gem! It's inexpensive yet clean and efficient allowing you to save money but still enjoy your vacation. The service from the motel staff is second to none! Rick is warm, welcoming and very helpful! I'd stay here again on my next trip to the Soo. It's simple, sweet and Very hospitable.

When I arrived at Trunk Road Motel, I had been riding my motorcycle in the rain for the past 5 hrs. After registering with Katen, the owner, he then came by and dropped off 4 towels to wipe off my bike. They moved a few chairs and offered I park my bike under the overhang to keep it dry over...

Heading back to Toronto from Thunder Bay, I pulled into Sault Ste Marie exhausted but every hotel was full. One hotel told me about Trunk Road Motel, that the couple was renovating it and, although dated, was very clean and it was pet friendly. They were very accommodating and the room was indeed very clean, comfortable and the staff was... More

I needed a place for the night while travelling solo, that fit my basic needs, which are 1: clean, 2: cheap - and everything else is just a frill. This place was perfect. It's a dozen-room small motel (including the rooms) along Trunk Road - hence the name. The room had only the basics but I did like the fact... More

Perfect place to stay if you are passing through and do not want to spend a fortune for 8 hours of sleep while travelling. Extremely friendly owners. I lost my wallet in Winnipeg and the front desk attendant was empathetic and helpful. Thank you very much for your hospitality.
