The hotel sign advertised great rates and breakfast so we decided to check it out. When told the room rate I didn't accept on the spot...seemed to be to good to be true. The young lady, with no hesitation, showed us a room facing the water, as we had asked for that. The room was VERY clean. It was older,... More

This would be an excellent place for a family to stay. There was a fridge, stovetop, and microwave. Dishes and cutlery are provided. There is a nice area outside with a barbecue guests can use. It is across the street from the beach. The rooms are affordable. We found the room clean and the staff pleasant. We would stay here... More

This hotel was a surprise. When we heard the price we were a little sceptical so asked to see the room. It was fine! Comfy bed, fridge, no microwave in our room. The bathroom needed a little bit of woodwork in one corner where there looked like there had been some water damage at one time. People were friendly, breakfast... More

This was an impromptu booking that we made by driving into the hotel. The price is right, considering that we didn't want to stay in a really high and place because we were not going to be spending our time there in the day. Having said that the only thing we found lacking is that the beds are less than... More

Not the usual canadian welcome we are used to! Very off hand at reception when we enquired about a kettle. This was shown on Booking.com but apparently not available. Not sure that rooms were cleaned apart from duvet being thrown over! Breakfasts, the minimum was offered. Washing machine, the washing came out dirtier than it went in! We felt the... More

The staff was friendly and helpful.Wanted to make sure we were satisfied. The room was spacious and very clean, had a large comfortable bed with a duvet. The kitchenette was well equipped. The room was quiet even though it was close to a main thoroughfare.

We needed a place to stay while attending a Family Reunion. The pictures and price looked good when we googled it but upon arrival the girl at the front desk was not very friendly or helpful. The rooms certainly needed updating, there was no fridge or hair dryer. You could ask at the front desk for a hair dryer (this... More

This hotel is clean but thread worn. The room was small and the patio was one foot from the driveway into the hotel. The breakfast was extremely limited in choice and not overly satisfying. The staff was not overly friendly although they were not particularly unfriendly, more like unconcerned.
