“Very Good Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I stayed at the Hide Away Motel on a trip around the Great Lakes from Manitoba to Georgian Bay. We were very pleased with the accommodations. Located on the highway but set back from the road, it was quiet. We found our room clean, comfortable and surprisingly large for a roadside motel. There was air conditioning powerful enough to cool the room quickly when we turned it on. The owner was very hospitable and helpful. We are early starters on a driving day so were gone before the 7:30am start for the breakfast, but it sounded great with plenty of choice including organic. We would definitely stay at the Hide Away on another occasion.

We were in Dryden to work at the recent Quarter Horse show and were put up at the Hide Away Motel. We were hesitant at first since we had never stayed there and have had some bad experiences with roadside motels. We were pleasantly surprised at the rooms and very happy with the customer service we received while there. When we checked into the room the gentleman that greeted us was very helpful and explained to us what all comes with the room. We had water, apple juice and apples in our room every morning. We didn't get to use the continental breakfast because we were up and gone before it started but we did get to order the free pizza from Dominos that was included in the room. It was so nice to get back from working at the horse show and the staff had ordered the pizza and placed it in our room for us. We also thought it was a nice touch to have a picnic table and a bonfire outside that we could use as well as a barbecue. We didn't get a chance to use these amenities but we certainly thought they were a nice touch. With all the choices of chain hotels out there it is hard to compete but his motel was definately better than staying at a chain. You just don't get service like that in those places. I would highly recommend staying there when in or travelling through Dryden.

Room Tip: We stayed in 103 and it was great!

This is the ace of diamonds in the motel deck of dryden as far as i can tell. Stayed hear for a night upon arrival in town and the co-owner Erwin was the most accomadating man ive met. He picked me up from the bus station and even drove me to work in the morning! Top notch, charming man. The rooms and bed are clean and cozy. Youll be set to go with free apple tv and netflix on a nice decent sized flat screen. There is a free continental breakfest that is relatively extensive and delicious. The best motel ive ever stayed at.

The HideAway is a pleasure to stay overnight or for the week. The owners have taken great care to provide clean upgraded rooms with all the necessary amenities (coffee,fridge,flat screen TV,nice furniture etc.)There is some highway noise but that's to be expected at a roadside motel.This is a good place to land.

Of all the places we have stayed in Dryden, this one is THE gem! A happy owner with an entrepreneurial attitude - clean and comfortable accommodations - and small surprises make this motel a "10". Not the newest, or the fanciest, but definitely worth it.

Stayed here recently for a night. Owner was very nice and made you feel like a friend rather than a guest. He brought a complimentary bottle of water and bottle of juice to the room and reviewed how the tv worked. Room was a basic room which is scheduled for remoldelling. It was quite large with new flat screen tv, Apple tv, wi-fi, and mini fridge. The bathroom was on the small side with the sink outside in a separate area. There was a large continental breakfast in the morning that ran from 7-11 but I left before it started. Other room classes included kitchenettes. Outside were 5-6 barbeques for use in the summer. Room prices started at $67 which I thought at first was on the high end but with all the little extras, was reasonable. Overall a nice experience and I would stay again.

Great little motel just outside of Dryden. Owner is all about customer service and making your stay a memorable one. Dog-friendly amenities and owner is slowly but surely updating rooms. Highly recommended!
