Arrived late in the day and lucky to have found a room. Nice staff, clean rooms, good breakfast. Didn't expect much so we were pleasantly surprised. Looked like a nice pool, but too tired to enjoy it.

The first issue is trying to find this motel! It is right off the Trans Canada however the trees have taken over any signage and if you're looking for a street sign - forget it. After driving right by it (3 times!!), we finally located the cul de sac it is located on - for any travellers looking for it... More

Thank you for your review. I am very sorry that you had trouble finding us. We tried many years ago to get a sign at the top of our road unfortunately the town didn’t allow us , so we had to place this on the turn coming into the road. I am glad you were able to find us eventually.... More

We were here for 3 nights while we toured the area. The hotel was located well for us. The staff were friendly and helpful. One night our room had not been cleaned by 5:00 and the housekeeper did a poor job. When we told the desk clerk in the morning, they apologized and thanked us for the feedback and actually... More

Cost effective hotel. Clean. Easy access on/off highway. Breakfast was a gong-show: insufficient supplies, seating/tables for guests We arrived around midnight and departed around 7am - literally only used it as a pit stop on our way further east... for this purpose it suited just fine.

We stayed for one night on our way to Moncton. The staff were super friendly and helpful. We loved the water slide and the pool was clean and warm. The beds were incredibly comfortable. We took our two small dogs with us and they were welcomed with no problems.

Very nice entrance, very clean and welcoming. The rooms were clean and tidy. The free breakfast was basic cold breakfast. The only real let down was the pool. Yes the slide is awesome, but the pool itself is sooooooooo very small. Other than this, we had an excellent stay.

We stay at a chain when we just want a standard place and a good sleep. This one was great for our purposes that night: close to the highway for our next days travel, the fan blocked outside noises, the breakfast was good, and the water slide is always a bonus feature for me. If you want to see Amherst... More
