“Do Not Pass This One”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

The White River Motel appears to be just your typical small town roadside motel as you drive by it. But once you check in, you will readily notice pride in ownership.

We stayed two nights and were immensely satisfied with all aspects of our room. The high standard of cleanliness is immediately apparent as you walk in to your room and for us, that eased our concerns and we could relax and enjoy the visit.

TV and Wi-Fi worked as advertised. To alleviate some of the noise from the truck traffic on the highway, ask for a room at the rear of the motel....very quiet back there.

Would definitely return to this motel.

I am so glad I can brag on this little gem on trip advisor. I mean, where ya gonna stay in White River? It is neat, clean, friendly and comfy. Beds are perfect and I loved the pillows. Fluffy towels, coffee maker, microwave and little fridge. All you can ask for. All you need! We ended up here an extra night because of rain. Easy walk to two restaurants.

This is probably the best motel in White River.

- Clean rooms.
- Hospitable staff.
- Near several restaurants.
- Loud because it is right beside the highway but all of the motels in W.R. are.

Conclusion:
Two thumbs up.

Room Tip: If you get a room on the backside, you may not hear the traffic from the highway as much???

Stopped here for a good night's rest ofter 13 hours of travelling. The motel itself had no vacancies but the gracious manager lady put us up in a huge house trailler down the road for the night; one of many they rent out when there is "no room left at the inn". This was so much more spacious than we would have had in a single hotel room. The front desk staff was super courteous and friendly. Would def recommend to any weary traveller. Very reasonably priced. The manager went out of her way to put us up for the night.

My wife and I stayed at this place on our Circle Tour of Lake Superior. The women who checked us in and then out the next day was very helpful and friendly. The place was clean and not nearly as dated as some of those along the route. I'd definately recommend it if your making the tour. There was a noisly group, who seemed to be very close to our room, but it all settled down around 10:00PM so I couldn't really complain. (I suppose they were smokers?)

Many of the roadside motels along the Transcanada Highway are very dated without any updating. This motel has been renovated, new bathroom, carpeting, paint. Still has old CRT tv, but it works. The place is clean enough, but the walls are thin. The outside nice settled down eventually and we did manage to get a good night's sleep. More reasonably priced than most for what you get. Most of these small towns don't have much as far as dining options. While there isn't much, at least you won't starve with a couple of food choices right across the street. BBQs are available too with a grocery right across the street, only open until 6 PM. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.

Canada/US coast to coast, hotel #9, 1 night

Another pit-stop on this long trip. White River, Ont, pop ??? lets just say small with two hotels to chose from, so we were not expecting a lot. We had a comfortable overnight stay at this hotel. I read a few complaints about wifi but it worked fine for me. We were about center rear of the hotel. Restaurants were located across the street. Room was clean and comfortable, I slept well. The staff were courteous. The hotel is good value. We would stay at this hotel again.
