Reviewed April 14, 2013

I stayed once and only once! My husband has stayed afew times, he thinks it's ok. Myself, not so much! It's old, clean, very basic, bed, small fridge, microwave & TV.
It's ok for a night, what do you want for $65? You get what you pay for! Guess that's why more guys are willing to stay there, it cheap and it fits the bill.

Typical old style Motor Inn. Had unit 12 which was large (2 double beds and a single bed). Carpets were dirty (bring slippers). Microwave, fridge, air conditioner and working TV were handy. The front staff were extremely friendly. The room smelled stale and dingy but the sheets (thin, 10 count maybe!) were clean. Didn't see any bugs...and I looked... Only soap provided so bring shampoo. There was a substantial amount of mould on the baseboards behind the toilet (it probably wouldn't kill you for a short stay). Close to Collingwood and the mountain and Thornbury is a beautiful little town.

We were looking last minute for 2 rooms in the area and didn't want to spend over $100....This is a very very old property....I wasn't expecting much and it was perhaps even below my expectations. The exterior appears to have been painted with a new roof so exterior looks OK. Rooms are really tiny. Furniture is really old, bed was comfortable. Bathroom had new sink, toilet was OK, tub was black it was so old (my sister's room had an equally scary shower stall). On the bright side it was clean and looked like it had new carpet. It was full so I assume others were in the same boat as we were. Bring towels and pillows if you can!

This place is a proof that you cannot believe webpages for a motel/ hotel. We had to go to a wedding in a little town nearby and wanted to stay close - so we booked it on the web ( there was nothing else in this town)....a big mistake. All for $99 Canadian....
Rooms were small and with shabby, dilapidated assortment of furniture, bathroom smelled like someone just had a ......., ceiling tiles were peeling off, walls were dirty, towels were beyond comment....the entire place looked as if someone picked up trash furniture in a dump and used it to furnish this place. I cannot fathom that someone would even rent this place for solid currency.
They did have wi-fi....if this is what you need.

Room Tip: do not book in this place

As a student I am trying to safe money, went with a couple of friends, the staff was friendly and nice, not to expensive. Room was nothing fancy but was clean and the tv, fridge and microwave was good, useful. Perfect location next to food land. Good place for people on a budget.
