“Not very clean!”
Reviewed July 23, 2009

Stayed here for one night stopover returning from Manitoulin. The carpet in the room was very dirty, especially by the bed, look like it hadn't been vacuumed after last stay. Lighting fixture was broken, bulb dangling inside. Very musty smelling, many mosquitoes & flies in the room. Everything seemed very outdated, bathroom fixtures cracking and poor looking, stain in toilet. Not a good experience, very overpriced @ $90. If i'm ever in Goderich again i will stay somewhere else... this place requires MAJOR RENOVATIONS!!

old out-dated smelly rooms!!! Phone did not work so could not make an outside call. Cleanliness - 1 1/2 out of 5 - crumbs on chair and they weren't from me. No service what so ever. Over-priced for a one star hotel.

We always thought this motel looked nice on prior visits to Goderich but never stayed there. We managed to get a room on short notice on June 30 but I think we got a room that obviously hadn't been used in a while - while it looked clean (bathroom was spotless), it definitely needed an airing out - it smelled musty and sour. Fortunately the windows opened so we were able to get it somewhat freshened up. I'd recommend bringing along a can of Febreeze!

The fridge wasn't plugged in either so that made it useless, since to get it cold enough to use would have taken several hours. The room didn't even have an ice bucket so when we went to the lobby to get ice for our drinks they gave it to us in a plastic bag, and it melted immediately.

Since we didn't have a reservation I suppose that was part of the problem regarding preparing the room properly, but these are small things some owners seem to overlook.

Mattress sagged a bit and I'd say the beds need some attention.

Can't comment on the pool and spa because they closed at 9:00 p.m. and by the time we got back to the hotel after supper there wasn't time to bother. Keeping it open an hour or so later would be nice.

The place was so-so... the beds were small... and this coming from a 5'2" person... The pool was decent, the rooms were clean. The staff could have been nicer, we had to ask for extra towels and pillows even though they knew there were 3 people staying in the room. Overall, I'd look for something better!
