Booked online. Took FOREVER to get checked in, then the room was literally not fully assembled. After a LOT of typing and looking and printing and typing, moved to another room. The facility is very dated. The sink was chipped and rusty. Carpets are pretty tired. Continental breakfast was the bleakest we've had on our 1 month trip. The place... More

This was an emergency stay, which I had to apologize to my wife for booking. The front desk clerks seemed like they were not planning to stay in hospitality as a career. They seemed to be there because it was a job. I tried to keep it pleasant since it would be a challenge kind of being the only one... More

Hard time making reservations & they could not find our reservations upon arrival. Bathroom not clean. Uncomfortable bed, lumpy pillows. I'm not really picky & I don't think replacing towels, glasses etc is too much to ask. Our friends couldn't open their doors from the inside. I'd call that a fire hazard. Continental breakfast was not very fresh. Got back... More

We booked this motel for one night during the August long weekend. We booked through a independent website and got our confirmation. When we got to the motel there was one person that booked a room as well, but according to the lady behind the desk they had no rooms available. Another couple walked in; they tried getting in to...

Over priced for what you get. Stained rugs, bare light bulb over one bed, someone else's hair on the sheets, sunken mattress. Old would be OK if it were clean, but it was not. Very little sleep as staff were cleaning rooms in the evening (!??!) and using the room above us as a staging area (at least this is... More

This motel is kept clean but still has the bug problem documented by another reviewer two years ago. (In addition to the crawling type found in the photos, there was also a wasp in our room!) In-room Wi-fi wasn't working, had to resort to the lobby. Neither the husband nor wife of this mom-and-pop establishment speaks English well enough to... More

Unless you're a diva that demands a mint on your pillow, this place is a great place to stay! Very clean, our room was so spacious! With a balcony. Super close to the tourist information and port hawksbury. We had our own balcony. And the best part was the super fast internet!

Having done no research, we checked in on our way to North Sydney as motel looked grand. However, once in room began to notice motel was well past its due date - unless the date was with a bulldozer. Toilet was located so close to the wall, that even an average sized butt would not fit on it. Left handed... More
