A normal hotel, but the location is excellent. Close to the waterfront & restaurants. The furniture was unexpected, being ornate, old style & darkish wood. Convenient for the ferry, but you need to go back to the highway, about a 15 min trip. Fill up with fuel before you get there as I could not find one in the town.

Walking distance to everything in the village. It is a pretty basic motel with outstanding service. The lady at the front desk is wonderful and helpful. We were in room number 10 which is right on the end by the stairs which at first was great because it made it a bit more private feeling and there was a bit... More

This is just an average hotel but the location is superb! it's blocks from everything in this small tiny quaint bay. Outstanding restaurants 2 blocks away. The rooms are dated and the beds are just ok but the bathrooms have been updated. Not far from downtown and near a very cool park called Whytecliff Park which is a great place... More

Booked it same day and got last room. Check in was quick and pleasant. Motel is dated with old ornate furnishings. Room was clean but bed could have been more comfortable. It is conveniently located near the ferry dock and a variety of restaurants.

This place is priced great for the proximity to the Ferry. You'll read other reviews that the walls are paper thin, which they are, but we came Prepared with earplugs. The Rooms were very clean and the bathroom was immaculate. The ladies at the front desk were the BEST! We got a recommendation for a good place to eat, and... More

The staff at the Motel definitely went the extra mile after we had done a few hundred and missed the last ferry. They were fully booked but she called someone who hadn't shown up by 10 in the evening to find that they had caught the last ferry, the one we missed and we could stay. The room was cozy... More

Upon checking in, you begin to realize it's a flashback motel but with a modern, updated feel. The nice Aussie lady who checked us in was charming and helpful. Our room was very clean with white clean linens (smelled cleaned- I'm weird about smells), plushy clean towels, and upscale toiletry items. The spacious room was well-appointed with nice furniture and... More

Very conveniently located to the Horseshoe Bay Ferry, Subway, Blenz Coffee Shop. We were very late arriving and the hotel owner met us at the desk; I'm sure it was after midnight. The room was totally redone and comfortable, The bathroom was also redone with a huge shower, new sink, tiling, etc. There was an electric fire place in the... More

Stayed there last nite. Heat registers don't work, wi fi wouldn't work, beds and covers very old. Too much junky furniture, small room, no bathroom counters. Not near as nice as the last Motel 6 I stayed in for $65. This cost me $178 with a 20 pet fee and tax. On the plus side it was clean. Wouldn't go... More

Staff are amazing. Looks dodgy on outside, but really clean for an older motel. The walls are paper thin though - luckily for me the couple next door went to sleep early as i could hear their entire conversation, their TV - everything. IF you got night owls, or loud people next to you it would be diasastrous, also the... More
