This room was absolutely horrible. There were bugs everywhere the beds were dirty, food under the one blanket and broken glass under the other. We were quoted different prices than what we were charged. I have filed a complaint with the accommodation board of Ontario as well as with other people needed to be notified. This place was absolutely awful. We paid 129.00 a night for the most horrible room because it had 2 beds and 69.00 a night for a room with 1 bed. They want you to pay on check in and I can see why because most people would leave instead of staying. Never again!

We recently stayed here once again on our trip back from BC. This is a very basic motel, a little dated and the rooms are on the small side but the price is right. If you wanting to not pay an arm and a leg, this is the place for you. The owners are very accommodating and the place was full but they saved us a room for our 3 dogs and after driving 14 hrs, that bed was a welcome site. We slept great, the air conditioning worked fine and although I have seen a few comments on the trip adviser - please don't let them determine whether you stay with Nadia and Raymond. We don't spend a lot of time in our rooms when we are travelling - we drive, we go out for dinner and we sleep. It was perfect.

Although my room was clean, the hotel is definitely due for a refresh. Approximately $90 per night (taxes included) is steep for this type of hotel. I have stayed in much better places for less.

The good:

- Friendly, helpful staff
- Small fridge and microwave in room
- good shower head and water pressure
- programmable air conditioner (new)
- Clean (but the place is so old that it doesn't really show)
- the bed was fine - comfy

The bad:

- The price (I was in town for an event so they may have raised the prices)
- Stained bed spread (it may have been washed but large plate size stains don't really entice you to want to sit on the bed - I took it off the bed)
- The overall look of the place - it looks like it hasn't been renovated in decades (changing the floors and a few good coats of paint would really help)

The inevitable:

- Like most motels, it is by the highway and you do hear the traffic. I didn't find it so bad, especially when I had the AC on.
- You can hear your neighbors.

Work should be done on the place to justify the price. Other hotels in the area seem to be a better bet (Spanish River Inn for example)

Room Tip: Room 17 is a smoking room. Avoid it if you're a non smoker.

Wow - what a disappointment. The rooms are incredibly tiny - no walking space, no chairs 'cause there is absolutely no room for one. We actually took turns sitting out in our van and we called it the 'lounge' because there wasn't even room to turn around in the room. The bathroom was disgustingly dirty and the toilet seat actually came off. No coffee in the rooms at all although you could get some from the office after 8am. The beds were very uncomfortable. If our schedule had been amenable to changing hotels we would have.

Stopped looking for a place to sleep after a long drive, and found the Massey Motel to be friendly, peaceful, accommodating and with reasonable rates. All in all a pleasant stay!

I phoned and booked a room before leaving home and was rather disappointed when the price of the room had been increased on my arrival simply because of an unexpected increase in demand for accommodation in the area that had little else to offer. My travel arrangement in area have been changed accordingly for my future and rather frequent trips.
