Incredibly clean, very well maintained, and very friendly family-owned motel. Stopped here over thanksgiving weekend for one night. Excellent value, especially when comparing to hotel chains further down the 401. Wifi offers a strong signal, no extra cost. Simple breakfast, perfectly adequate.

Stayed: October 2013, traveled with family

Stayed 10/14. A bit out of the way and hard to find, but well worth the effort. This is an older style motel that shows great pride in ownership. The yard is well groomed and adequate parking is available in front of your room. Parking lot is illuminated and you will feel safe here.

Check in was very friendly and the clerk will spend extra time with you, letting you check the room before purchasing, providing helpful info and identifying restaurants.

Rooms are immaculate. Carpets are very clean, walls are freshly painted, ceilings are bright and there is plenty of lighting. Beds are comfortable with fresh clean sheets and firm pillows. The only smell in the room was fresh clean air. Windows can be opened if you like. The HVAC is thermostat controlled. Room has fridge, microwave and flat screen TV. In the bathroom, fixtures are new and work well. Everything is very well maintained. We have stayed at high end hotels that were not as impressive as this establishment.

Don't expect breakfast at this motel although a modest complimentary spread is available. There is a restaurant across the street and a few places in town.

We had dinner at the Waterfront Pub about a mile away and it was gourmet excellent.

Highly recommend this stop and we will stay here again.

We also wanted to stay between Montreal and Toronto, and we're looking for a hotel that was clean, comfortable, and convenient. After reading the reviews, I picked Fox Motor Inn. We were not disappointed. The owners are friendly, and keep their hotel in great condition. This is a small
"Mom & Pop" hotel in which the owners take great pride. It was a short drive off the main highway, but worth it!

If You travel from Montreal to Toronto, the FOX Motor Inn is the place to overnight. The owners are friendly and always in good mood, the place is very clean. It's got a nice pool, too. Ample parking possibilities. Across the street there's a family restaurant (make sure to be early as they close at 8 PM). The rates are very reasonable and the FOX Motor Inn provides a continental breakfast.
Gas up in close by Deseronto! There You'll find very competitive low gas prices!!

Stayed for 3 Weeks. The owners are by far the nicest owners around. Stayed at the Hampton before and the fox blew them away. We had 10 guys staying there and every one of them would go there and stay again. They have a nice area in the back away from the road to relax, a beautiful pool and a bbq available for guests. The rooms were nice and cleaned to perfection everyday! Plan on coming back next year and don't have to think about where we are staying because there is only one place I'll stay in Napanee and that's the fox motor inn!

Booked the Fox based on previous reviews although I was a bit nervous about staying in a motel but it was great. Clean, comfortable & quiet - the owner was very accommodating & helpful. Make your reservations in advance as it looked completely filled up when we were there on a Thursday night. Only one minor thing, the hand & bath soap were really cheap but the towels & linens were all good quality.
