“Excellent Place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We had cancelled a booking at the local Best Western to stay here since our friends were going to be there. We were all attending the Highland Games in Maxville. The rooms were really comfortable for the 3 of us. The bed was comfortabvle and the bathroom was on the small side but entirely adequate and the shower was hot and powerful which is something I always look for wherever I stay. The rooms are set back from the main road and are quiet.
We were directed to a local restaurant for breakfast which worked out really well. The "Hungryman's Breakfast" certainly lived up to its name. There is also an Italian restaurant right next to the motel which is worth a visit.
Would certainly go back if we were ever in the area again!

Room Tip: Ask for the Spa room for that extra bit of luxury!

I was hesitant to stay in a hotel that was not a major chain that I am familiar with, due to some past experiences. This place was superior. The owners were so very nice. It was an older building, but well maintained. Lots of features such as microwave and refrigerator. They do not serve breakfast, but restaurants are nearby.

We had a very enjoyable stay here - we stayed in the room with the spa bath which was a major help in relaxing us after each tiring day chasing our kids around the area,who were on tour from Scotland! It was very quiet and peaceful. Jim and Brenda, the owners, couldn't have been more kind and helpful to us and their other guests some of whom were also friends of ours. We will definitely be going back there to stay at some point in the future.

Room Tip: The room with the spa bath Is AMAZING and SO relaxing!!!!!! 👍

We stopped in Cornwall to visit a friend and found it was getting late. One phone call later and we were in this great spot. Clean, updated, friendly owners (and dog!).....everything one would want for a good night's sleep were there. The bed was comfortable and the linens sparkling white. There was a fridge and microwave in the room so breakfast was fast and easy. It was centrally located and a very reasonable price. We would stay here again.....no problem! Thanks for having us!

Heading toward North Bay we stayed at the motel based on reviews and a Google map pedestrian view. It is in a great location, within walking (wide sidewalks going both ways) distance of good restaurants, shopping, including a grocery store. The motel proprietors, Jim and Brenda, are friendly and knowledgeable on local attractions. The room is spacious, had all the amenities (microwave/refrigerator/wireless internet), clean and everything worked. We made a reservation for the following week (last room to be available that night) since we were very happy with the first visit. Arriving, we found the reservation missing and no vacancy. Jim made no excuses, thought for a brief moment and offered his premier extra price room with Jacuzzi Tub, the bridal room at the same price. The hotel advertises that they treat guests like family and they back this up. This room was exceptionally nice and well appointed. We'll stay here for sure on the next time through.

This is the best motel I have EVER stayed at! The rooms are huge. The beds are comfortable. The owners are firendly and very helpful with any onfo you require about the area.
There is a very good restaurant, Peppermills, across the street at the Best Western Hotel.
We felt very comfortable and safe. This motel is near everything you may need or want and highway access to get anywhere lese is near.

Room Tip: They have rooms with a king size bed and a fireplace, or two queen size beds. We've had both, bu...
