My group stayed in several rooms for 3 nights while we dove the many wrecks in the St. Lawrence River. I was surprised how comfortable my roommate and I were there. You get a bad impression when you first enter the room due to a strange smell but after running the a/c for a while, the odor goes away. Perhaps... More

We were three couples attending a wedding. Our room reeked and the windows did'nt open so I had to run the a/c constantly. The sheets on the bed had a huge yellow stain, both top and bottom, which made me question whether they were even washed. One couple's sheets had blood on them and no toilet paper in the room....

This is exactly what you should expect for $69. It's pretty much the lowest "peak season" price you'll find in A-bay. (There are some motels in town that are $85+ with NO a/c.)The room was small but not crowded, and included a small fridge, microwave and cable TV. The place was clean, had better beds than many other motels i've... More

Let me start by saying that the motel owner is very nice. She let us check in early and was very accomodating, and put up with the hockey team's crap. However, you get what you pay for-I've stayed in many establishments, and this was pushing it to my limit. There were no curtains on the window-only a white blind, which... More
