“Clean comfortable room for the night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Room was comfortable and clean and reasonably priced - met my objectives. Within walking distance to restaurants and corner store. If it was summer time they have a pool which would be very nice. I personally prefer small family owned businesses to big name hotels. The roof is being redone. Nice to see the owners really care about their property.

I'm happy to review this motel because I had a good experience. My room was clean, equipped with small fridge, television and coffee machine! The motel has also a nice little outdoor pool opened until 10pm.

Nice and cheerful staff!

Only negative note: bed wasn't ideal, a bit too hard.

I don't know where Jon K stayed but nothing could be further from the truth in my opinion. My wife, her brother and I have recently returned from Canada and chose the Canadiana primarily for it's location as we were visiting the Whitby, Canada area. When we arrived we were met by the owners who were most helpful, polite and knowledgeable. This continued throughout our stay.
The property is a typical motel and undergoing some refurbishment although this does not cause any problems to occupants as most of this refurbishment is internal.
There are smaller rooms (which we were allocated 2 and quite happy with) which were the original rooms on the site, and the owner assured me that they are going to be replaced shortly. There are, also, larger (family) rooms available on site.
The site also hosts a swimming pool open from 10am to 10pm and cleaned daily and bar-b-q facilities (bring your own charcoal) open to residents.
The grounds are kept clean by the hard-working couple (and their family) who run the site. The bed linen was changed regularly and the rooms kept spotlessly clean - again, by the owners and their family.
We were there for 10 days which is probably more than most people spend in a motel but we enjoyed our stay. It was quiet, clean, ideally located and well managed by the friendly staff. Oh, and don't forget that if you go to the excellent "Brothers" Restaurant (opposite) you can get a 10% reduction off of your bill because you are staying in The Canadiana.
I can highly recommend The Canadiana and look forward to staying there during our next visit in a couple of years time.

I liked the location with quietness. It was family gathering after long time. We were about 15 people and we shared about 4 rooms I guess. Everybody in our group liked the room service and location as well. We like to recommend everybody to go down there and have the experience of excellent service. Thanks Canadiana Inn.

Room Tip: rooms on the south side are quieter

I realize that this motel is family run and is an older place which should have given it the benefit of the doubts but ______

Pros - Nice looking proprty in a quiet area
- owner was friendly
- property grounds were nice
- clean

Cons - worst bed we ever slept on, was like sleeping on plywood
- shower had what looked like black mold around the edges
- rooms were not very sound proof
- old fashioned key locks and was hard to get into the room

I guess in a pinch, this motel would do but it wasn't our cup of tea and was overpriced for
the quality of the room
