John's Motel however, is very affordable and I felt it was very charming. The service was friendly and it the bed was... More

Stayed here for two nights while visiting Bathurst. Dollard gave us a room that suited our needs and he was extremely friendly and helpful with suggestions for places to eat. The room was very quiet at night, despite being on the main road. While actually located in Beresford, it is only about 3-5 minutes from downtown Bathurst, so quite handy.

The kitchen and dining area were separated from the sleeping area (essentially two rooms within our one motel room). Really loved how the room was set up and it was big enough for our dog to not...

Stayed at John's Motel for a couple of weeks while working in the Bathurst area in August, 2014. Our host Dollard was very friendly and accomodating. The rooms we rented were clean and beds comfortable, overall a very positive experience. I would not hesitate to stay at John's Motel again!
