Stayed 7 nights. It was my third time staying here. Because I arrived unexpectedly early, I had a cabin for the first night. I then moved to a room, as was reserved. Each visit has been very pleasant and affordable. Always very clean. The property is older but well maintained.

Our room was a bit musty smelling, and the air conditioning unit was somewhat noisy, but overall everything was adequate. Wifi was fast and reliable. The owners were friendly, and the continental breakfast was ok.

Expectations----whether it is a hotel, restaurant, a concert----how we regard most any experience really comes down to what our expectations are and how well they are met. These thoughts come to mind because the Skylite motel is an older property that would fail to meet your expectations if you are looking for lodgings that are plush, nor would you be... More

I would never recommend staying here. Our family with a baby and young child were in town for a wedding and decided to try out what looked like a cute hotel with little cabins. Our room was super dusty and covered in spiders. In the tub, corners of the rooms, walls. It was disgusting. And when we showed them, they... More

We booked here for 5 nights while we viewing some real estate. This motel is old, we had stayed here many years ago. The price was good, $79 a night via booking.com. The room itself was old and and tired (as expected). It was clean and functional tho, and this was our desire. We had to ask for extra towels,... More

This was a good motel, with good beds and a spacious room. Great value! The staff was really great and it is also in a good location. Trail access for dog walking is super close. I thought the noise from the road would bother me, but I had a great sleep.

The new owner is fantastic. He's very polite and super helpful. For the price, with everything you need, you just can't beat it. It's a 2 minute drive from the beach and has a couple restaurants close by to eat. I will definitely come back.

A Motel should have all its facilities in good working condition: the Skylite is a very good example of what is wanted. Clean and pleasant room with nice managers in attendance. Especially good value for holiday location and summer season. Convenient to the range of restaurants and beach facilities.

The new owners took over the motel and they are so polite and sweet. They also provided a continental breakfast that was so good. Especially I was very happy since I was allowed to bring my dog. The location was also good. It was right beside of Tim-hortons and Boston pizza.

There is so much old dirt and food stuck to everything. Blinds, curtains, all the walls & doors are banged up. Bring rubber gloves and a hazmat suit. Absolutely gross when you step inside. Sleeping with one eye open. I can't believe that this place got anything higher than a 1 or 2. Would have left immediately if anything else... More
