“Great Location....good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2010

I stayed here for one night while waiting for the ferry the next morning. I stayed in their smallest room, which was quite small, but quite comfortable. The location can't be beat. You can walk to anywhere in town from here. They have some nice chairs out back that look over the harbour. Very relaxing location, comfortable bed.

We stayed here for 3 nights while exploring Fathom Five N.M.P. and Bruce Peninsula N.P. The location is outstanding! We had a back room with the deck access. On the deck were chairs to enjoy the marina view and stairs to access the marina walkway. The walkway has little shops including a grocery store and it's also where the boats for Flowerpot Island are docked. Rooms were very clean, air conditioner worked great and there was plenty of space for myself, my husband and our 6 year old son. Also, there's a wonderful gift shop below, The Net Shed which carries great souvenirs and lots of Life Is Good products.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2009

We stayed in a 2-double-beds room with water view of the Little Tub Habour, right beside the tour boats. The area is quiet and has many restaurants and many stores including a grocery store. The room is clean.The beds are very comfortable. The TV is quite new and working. The size of the room is very cramped with 2 beds and 2 big chairs. There is no room for a traditional closet, just a few hooks on the wall. The windows and drapes need to be renovated. The drapes are not wide enough to cover the entire length of the window, leaving a small gap in the middle or on the side. This may be a concern if you want more privacy. The 4-piece Bathroom is clean.
Staffs are friendly. The parking lot is not paved, just has sands and gravel. It can be messy for the room when it rains.
Overall, it is still good value and conveniently located.
