It was a heck of a night! I had just spent one of the best weeks of my life camping up at Ney's Park . The weather had been fantastic all but for the last night. I didn't get much sleep that night in my tent and on my return trip back south decided it would be best to stay over in Sault Ste. Marie. I stopped at a campsite- that was the plan! Unfortunately, the weather turned severe again in the middle of the night. I was soaked again and completely exhausted. At 3 am, I made an executive decision to pack up the tent and drive into Sault Ste Marie to find a room and try to get some sleep.
I arrived cold and tired. I tried a few other places first, but they were booked. I needed a pet friendly place as I had my dog with me. The Satelite had a room and I checked in at about 4 am.
I was a little flabbergasted with the price. $77.00 for a night on a Sunday seemed a little steep for a small motel- that's even more than the Super 8. I decided not to judge a book by it's cover and besides, I was desperate. I just wanted a clean, dry place to lay my head, a hot shower and wifi to plan my trip for the next day.
The Satelite motel was not really all that it was advertised to be. The rooms smelled a little musty, the sheets didn't look great- so I brought in my own pillows and covers and put them on the bed. The towels were threadbare and dirty- so I used my own towels. They had soap- that's a positive. They could have taken a few dollars from the 77 I paid to buy a new shower curtain, it was stained and moldy. The air conditioner was hard to turn on- but I got it. It is one of the models from the 70s maybe. The air conditioner helped take the smell from the room. The wifi was out and there was no outlet in the room to plug in my laptop to recharge- I had to find one in the bathroom. The water in the shower was hot thank goodness!!
I finally got some sleep! However was woken up by someone trying to get into the room in the morning to clean it. So if you are absolutely desparate- this motel offers a safe, dry place to lay your head- but that is about it. It is way overpriced for what it offers. Travellers beware- if you stay here, I advise to bring your own bedding and towels.
