We came across the Glenmore Motel/Hotel while driving along the Bruce Highway and needed somewhere to stop for the night.
We booked direct for one night and believe me that's all I'd recommend, very expensive for a motel off a noisy highway. The motel is part of a shopping precinct and the restaurant/bar is attached thru a side gate and you can charge restaurant bill back to your room. We didn't eat there and the bar was a large empty space with no atmosphere, there were two rooms full of gaming machines where everyone gravitated towards.
There is private parking outside the rooms which were clean and average size, but the noise from the motorway was loud throughout the night so not much sleep was had.
Bonus with the shopping area is that there are other places to eat and do any last minute shopping.
There were other motels along the highway so may be best to see what they offer.
