We stayed here while heading to Canada for a fishing trip. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were decent and the facilities were serviceable. There was morning coffee in the lobby and a decent computer for guest use in the lobby as well. Not luxury but affordable and nice for a stopover.

Small town hotels are never this good. The staff is efficient, accommodating, and friendly. Just passing through, but I can't imagine a better hotel in this area. Reasonably priced, excellent value. Amenities include refrigerator, microwave, and a nice full size pool area.

While trying to say something nice about this place, I wouldn't pay half the price to come back. In the end, it is ok. Nothing special about the rooms, maybe even a bit tired. Nice to have a balcony to see the stars at night and drink room coffee in the morning. TV in the first room we were issued... More

I stayed only one night. The room was very clean. Victoria was friendly and welcoming at the front desk. The grounds are very well maintained and the sounds from the river or waterfalls was so peaceful and relaxing. If I ever have the need again I would stay there.

Very welcoming hotel with its wooden balconies, wonderful views, super wide rooms and top notch landscaping. If you want quiet and peace but still be a stone's throw away from all of the amenities, this place could not be more perfect.

Gracious desk staff, comfortable beds. 3 of the lamps out of 5 were out of order. We would have appreciated more light. To be fair, we did not ask for this to be rectified. We still had a good stay. We would recommend this hotel.

We stayed here because the price was right. Rooms were large and comfortable. Had a fridge. Was located not far from 91 and was easy to get too. There was a Maplefields next door which was convenient.
