The owners couldn't be nicer. The rooms are large, clean & comfortable. The beds are firm but comfortable. The walls are thick so any noise is negligible. They are Eco conscious. They have a wonderful little continental breakfast in the morning. The rooms are cleaned & straightened up daily. The pool is warm & clean. I wouldn't stay anywhere else... More

Shaheen's Motel provided a wonderful stay for our family! Our experience was top-notch--with awesome beds, super clean room, gracious hosts, and beautiful grounds (pool, putt-putt, balcony, etc.) Breakfast on site saved us time and money--something to make each member of the family happy! It was quiet at night--perfect night's rest for the whole week! This is the place to stay... More

We are a family of three and wanted to visit The Wild Center on our way up to Montreal. We typically stay in chain hotels because it's nice to know what you are in for.

From the exterior, the motel looks just as it must have looked 50 years ago but looks can be deceiving. The rooms are comfortable and impeccably clean. Some features have been updated and all are in perfect operating condition. The continental breakfast is very adequate and well presented. A key aspect of your stay here is the very warm and...

Stayed 1 night. Very neat and clean motel. Room, bathroom and swimming pool were spotless! Would stay again. We stopped in on a Friday afternoon and were able to book for only 1 night. Robin was great, very friendly and always around. Would stay there again.

We stayed at this motel for two nights. Rooms were large and had two queen beds, which were very comfortable. Room had a frig, microwave, flat screen tv a small table and chairs. While the bathtub was a 70s blue, there was a new flooring in the bathroom. An outside pool is available. Great room for the price!

There are no "chain" hotels in Tupper Lake so I was a bit nervous about what to expect. Turns out I was nervous over nothing. This motel is a family run business that offers large, clean rooms and great service. The accommodations were clean, price was right, and the staff were very friendly. We will definitely stay again.
