Picket Fence Motel

We stayed at this motel twice and both times were very clean and comfortable and very close to town. But perhaps it is a bit expensive for a small hotel with no breakfast. But the staff were really helpful and friendly and if you go into the hut there is a clock with when the night is and the low tide

This was one of the cleanest motels or hotels we have ever stayed in. The rooms are well supplied with towels and soap. Everything was just perfect for our two night stay. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay a few more nights. Sue was the person we spoke to on the phone to book our room. She was also there to meet us upon arrival. She was very pleasant and gave us great information about the area.
Anyone looking for a nice, clean, quite place to stay at a good price, this is it.

Arrived in St. Andrews with the intention of staying only 1 night and booking a whale-watching tour the following day. We found this motel on the way to town and even though the property didn't seem like much from the outside, we were pleasantly surprised with the interior of the rooms. They were not new rooms, but they were nicely decorated, they have this "Cottage Country" feel with comfortable beds, nice linens and towels, renovated bathroom, friendly and informative front desk staff. She gave me directions on what to do while in town: Aquarium, Kids' Playground, Beach Area and Tours. We got rained out on the following day, so we stayed 1 extra night: Meanwhile, we took advantage of her advice and visited the Aquarium and had a nice Seafood Dinner in town. The following morning the weather was much better so we finally took one of the Whale-Watching tours that depart from the main harbour. As far as "Motels" go, one of the nicest we stayed in during our trip. Only thing it needs would be a Breakfast included with the price, but unfortunately they have no restaurant. Just go into town and look for an "All-Day Breakfast"

This unpretentious little motel is family operated, clean, inexpensive and very conveniently located. Not luxerious by any means, but the bed are comfortable, bathrooms small but impeccable with ample lush towels, and the service was absolutely lovely. Only about 5 min walk from lovely St Andrews downtown, and 3 minutes from Tm Horton's, quite convenient.

We arrived at the Picket Fence Motel 36 minutes prior to check in, after a four hour drive with a family of four. I was greeted by the motel receptionist who very curtly reminded me that check in was at two. In a most condescending voice she said, "I told you over the phone that check in was at two". A simple ... I am sorry but no rooms are available at this time would have sufficed. This motel is overpriced, clean, well located and fine for a one night stay. Our greeting by the receptionist was most unfortunate and for this reason we will not be returning. People skills are essential in the service industry - they were definitely lacking on this day:(
