I have to start by asking the reader to keep in mind that in Wasaga, one can expect a certain amount of disrepair from accommodations and measures owners will take to ensure that extra people aren't being put up in their rooms. This comes with the territory. What is less understandable is that I would pay what I did for what we actually got. We booked a room with two double beds and a futon, and with this being the pricier of the two options I was considering, I expected something better than the cheaper place we had stayed in last year. I gave the rating I did here because the people working there are polite, there was a good number of barbeques and the location is good.
First is the room: It was the closest to the main office where the modem was located, but the wifi could not reliably reach us. We ended up using the wifi hotspot on my phone to stream music all weekend instead, and the explanation I received for this was that they only advertise that the wifi is "available". It seems I was wrong to think that it would be available in rooms, especially ours. The carpet and mattresses felt perpetually damp, the oven did not work and the shower was barely usable (I added a photo of how it runs).
I can concede that the oven problem was sort of addressed by a staff member offering to let us use the oven of another room and I should have brought up the shower earlier, but what it comes down to is that this room is being rented at a rate that does not suit its quality. Staff being unaware of one problem until it's brought to their attention is reasonable, but this place is in such a condition that someone had to know about it, and still charged the price I would pay for a good place in downtown Toronto.
I wouldn't recommend this place and we won't be returning. I hope that the place improves and turns out to be the place we thought it was going to be.
