My fiancé and I stayed here the Saturday of the Cranberry Festival. The excellent service started when we got a bit lost trying to find the place. We called and the proprietor stayed on the phone with us giving us turn by turn directions. Much more polite than any GPS I have ever used. The great service did not stop... More

Incredibly clean and not at all smelly, the lovely gentleman who owns this quite obviously takes great pride in this old style motel. For a decent price, the property is very well kept, incredibly clean and surprisingly delightful. It's no Fairmont (decor is nothing to write home about, you don't sink luciously into the bed and have puffy white comforters... More

My daughter and I were our way to North Bay, when we stopped here at 3:00 a.m. for a bathroom break. We were pleasantly surprised to find a good selection of homemade food at reasonable prices, so we were able to get a healthy AND tasty snack.

Small motel located just off of Highway #11 by the Muskoka airport. I called at 1 am and management was very courteous helping me out and making sure I had everything that I wanted. The room was clean and at the top of my experience for a motel of this type. The room was quiet and frankly if I could... More

Skyways Motel is right on Highway 11, with its own exit going north. I have stayed there many times over the years because the rooms are super clean, the beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept on, which is really saying something good, because I am a large person. The owners are very friendly and accommodating, and everything... More

Stinky, old, not maintained, small, overpriced. It is better then camping under the tent just because it has indoor restroom and running water. But wait, tent doesn't stink. If there is any other room in 50 miles range, I would drive there.

We had to pull over due to our daughter getting a stomach bug and this was the first place we found with rooms. Bathroom was very old. There was a bloodstain on the outer edge of tub. Beds were so hard it felt like mattresses we're hollow. Thank god we were exhausted or none of us would have slept. Not... More

The Skyway Motel is operated by a lovely local family in Bracebridge. It is conveniently located right off of Hwy 11 beside the Petro Canada and a lovely restaurant that serves a great breakfast. We discovered the Skyway motel about four years ago and have visited several times since. We travel with many children and sometimes other families. We have... More

Clean enough (as far as the rooms go inside, didn't smell too bad) but a DUMP! At check in, owner tells me he has to charge me more if I use a credit card that collects points, because those cost him more!!!!!!!!! (Never heard THAT before.....) Screen doors have not been cleaned of road dirt and dead bugs in decades.... More
