Quiet, peaceful motel

Although older, it was clean and staff very accommodating. If you want a quiet, peaceful motel without a lot of hustle and bustle, this is the motel for you. It's easy to get to and centrally located to nice eating establishments. Only minutes from downtown.

Take a pass

Although this hotel boasts a fantastic view the service and state of it made it overpriced. Front reception was rude and indifferent to our issues informing us we simply didn't know how to use the AC and that the mattresses were just replaced therefore they couldn't possibly be sagging or have sprung springs. Trying to call their "customer service" line resulted in a never ending hold cycle. The room was clean but very rundown and the towels are threadbare. Had this been a 59$ side of the road motel I would be more inclined to shrug it off.

Quiet location for the price

The hotel needed paint and the hot tub needed to be up-dated. We enjoyed a great view and liked the quiet room.

Not again!

the beds are way to hard and the pillows were lumpy. A/C mounted in wall was so noisy couln't hear myself think. We had 2 rooms in our group. all 4 beds the same and all 8 pillows the same. Couldn't get into the 1st room day one had to get someone to re-key the card and then day 2 couldn't get in other room the had to re-key that card. It was not dirty but difficult to sleep in. The whold place looked liked it needed a major overhall.

Great Stay - Friendly Staff

The room was clean and the area was quiet! 3 minutes up the road was a Tim Horton's - gotta love that!

Less than Expected

Although adequate this facility made me think of the heyday of HoJo back when I was a kid...maybe 50 years ago. The facility is aging although it looks like there have been efforts to rejuvanate it.. it still has the look and feel of a 50's generation. The AC was noisy, turned it off so we could sleep; the free wireless didn't work until I went to the office and mentioned it, after a reboot it did work fine. The location was fine. It's near the main junction with the transCanada, lots of other motels in the same area...many looked of the same genera. I was there in July during a relatively hot spell. The swimming pool had two deck chairs in the bottom and didn't look like it had been used all summer. Neddless to say we didn't go swimming.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

Not to far from the hotel toward the newer developing section, we found a movie theater and restaurants. We at at the White Spot not bad.
