5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

My wife and I stayed in this motel when we were first married 41 years ago. We were surprised to find it looking almost exactly as it did then. It has been renovated without losing its original appeal. It was clean, comfortable, and fresh looking for being around for so many years. We would recommend it to anyone traveling through Wawa.

The hotel room is average, clean enough but noisy. The hotel is always busy and management does not seem to do much when guests complain about noise. It is hard to get a good nights sleep when you have to work the next day. On the upside, the restaurant there is good and affordable.

My husband & I drive across Canada once a year. The Wawa Motor Inn is
our first nights stop driving from Peterborough, Ontario travelling on our way to Calgary, Alberta. The hotel has clean rooms and reasonable prices. Staff are friendly and food is good. Pets are also accepted.

We stayed in the Log Village in the back. Our room was lined with split logs, giving it a very cozy, quaint atmosphere. I liked that the room had a back door which let us get a good breeze in it. The room was clean, but it was certainly dated, which gave it its charm. Water pressure was very high (which I loved!) but the water temperature was very touchy. The faucet on the sink was not firmly attached to the sink and moved around every time you turned the handle. WiFi was slow, but reliable. Staff was very friendly. I was disappointed that breakfast wasn't included.

I did feel the room was overpriced for what we got (and didn't get...breakfast), particularly considering the place was not even half full. We came in late though, and with no 3G in town, I couldn't look up the TA reviews. It worked though.

Room Tip: Ask if they have a cheaper room than what they first offer you. This saved us $14.

A buddy and I stayed overnight before flying to an outpost cabin on a fishing trip we lined up. The motel has a good restaurant and bar - both very large considering the area. The rooms were reasonably clean and accommodating. Since the Canadian dollar and the US dollar are on a par buying goods and services in Canada is more expensive than previous years. I love Canada and the people are nice but accommodations in smaller towns are a little more rustic and you have to expect to pay more. We could have stayed elsewhere but this looked like the best option.

Room Tip: Really no bad rooms since there's no scenic view out the windows that I could see.

Wow needs some renovations. The shower curtain was not big enough to close as a result there was a lake on the floor. I now realize why there is a black stain around the toilet. It is obviously black mold. There is also mold in the shower. I can't understand how there can be mold in a motel when it is supposed to be cleaned every time someone uses that room. Also I did not find the front staff very helpful. Could not check in until 5 pm. They would not even allow us to get registered so when the room was ready we were all set.

We chose this place because we stayed here in the past and the price was reasonable. This time we were in the Log Cabin section. The rooms were very large, spotless and very well decorated. The beds were comfy andthe bathroom looked newly renovated. The only downside was that as thick as the walls looked, noise travels right through them. We didn't use the restaurant because it was closed for some reason during our stay.

Room Tip: The log cabins are a good choice for families with children.
