The owner makes this place, she is helpful, provides local knowledge and makes you feel welcome. Also helps that the beds are comfortable! Great value for money, fridge, coffee and microwave in the room. Will stay again next time in Cochrane.

I stayed at this motel in July 2014 for 2 nights. It is clean and everything worked in the rooms I stayed in. I took the train to Moosonee and left my car at the motel. No safety issues. Barb the new owner is quite helpful and sure makes you feel welcome.

Considering you are paying a budget price don't expect the Royal York. The motel is not pretending to be a "Best Western", but for the cost difference a couple can go out for a very nice dinner including a drink. You should also remember that you are approaching the far north of Ontario and things generally are a lot simpler.... More

My handicapped sister and myself stayed with Barbara Crouch and the Commando Motel for 4 nights during our visit to the area. We travelled on the Polar Bear Express and stayed in Moosonee for the only other night. To me, a business reflects it's owner...I highly recommend the Commando Motel to anyone seeking a warm, comfortable, clean, quiet, and organized... More

We booked a room by visiting the motel in person as we needed a room on arrival at Cochrane on our way back from Moosoone from train. The motel owner confirmed the reservation and took the credit card details. On the day of arrival at the Motel, the manager had simply disappeared. She was not available at her office and... More

I was travelling to Toronto and since I had I stayed at this property two years ago upon the suggestion of a friend (not to be confused with a recommendation) I figured I would visit it again. Two years ago the motel was old but not unpleasant and was pretty much what I expected for the price, especially at a... More
