This was our first trip to Sussex and, as we noted the motel is close to the main provincial highway, we asked the reservation clerk if our room would be away from the noise of the heavy traffic. We were assured that it was. It definitely wasn't as we had an unobstructed view from our room with the road less than 50 yards away. As the other motels in the area were booked for that Saturday night we had no choice but to stay. On entering the room we were hit with a strong odor and a very noisy a/c unit (ear plugs were required for sleeping). The front desk advised us that the smell must have been their cleaning materials.... it never went away and we would describe it as stale, almost moldy in nature. The room was very dated with few lights or outlets. The wifi was extremely slow. The attached restaurant was part of our dinner plan but it was so busy we ordered pizza which came by taxi with a $9 fee due to the distance from town. We managed to book another motel for our next 2 nights (Amsterdam) for a comparable price including hot breakfast and were amazed at the difference in quality. We will not be returning to the Fairway Inn.
My husband and I booked the honeymoon/anniversary suite for a one night stay, purely for the inn room jacuzzi.
I'm not familiar with how loud they are supposed to be, but we ended up not using it, since we would have to yell at each other when it was on.
The room was big, bright, and very clean, but the bed was what ruined our stay. It had a 4 inch think supersoft foam topper, which was deceptively inviting. After about 20 minutes, we were realizing the swaybacked mattress was going to be horrid. It was.
Breakfast was nice from JJ's, called over and had it done up to-go.
I would return, for sure, but only when there is a new mattress.
We booked this motel for a stop over on our journey. We were absolutely appalled by the condition of the room. It was non-smoking but smelled badly, the ceiling tiles were water damaged and moldy and tacked back in place in some places with duct tape and the carpet was peppered with stains and cigarette burns.There were also other guests hanging outside drinking, smoking and swearing loudly. It was by far the worst hotel we had ever experienced and left without spending the night. We felt the prior reviews to be highly misleading.
motel and restaurant staff very friendly,
room we had was very clean, and quiet, considering we were next to the highway,
front desk very nice and considerate,
restaurant had really good service and good food,
We travelled late into the night and were quite happy to find a hotel that had availability at a reasonable price. Easy to see the hotel from the highway. Take exit 193. Our GPS did not recognise the coordinates of the hotel. The room was adequate and contained a mini-fridge and clothes cupboard. Breakfast is served in the diner located next door and the included breakfast served is a specific full breakfast but with no substitution allowed otherwise there is a cost.
