This is an older property - actually, on section older and another newer. We were placed in the older section presumably because we had dogs with us. Halls were very narrow, rooms darker though bed was comfortable and night noise was non-existent (we were on the side away from the highway). Amenities as expected though of lesser quality than I...

I stopped for a very short stay. I was not there very long, arrived late and left early in the morning. The room was nicer than the exterior would have lead me to believe. Pleasantly surprised. The staff who checked me in made sure I was aware of road closures that had happened that day in the area, which was...

I have only stayed here 3 times, in the middle of winter each time. First time I forgot to hitch my car up to the heater point and in the morning it would'nt start and was frozen to the ground. Staff were very helpful to this idiot Englishman.Hotel is rather shabby but clean and unusually for Canada do good food....

Travelling the TC Hwy and needed somewhere just to sleep. More than I wanted to pay but didn't feel like shopping around. It's just a basic hotel but front desk was very nice to deal with and helpful at checkin and check out. The room was more than I needed and overall clean; but the flush lever needs to be...

I was put in older section, hallways so narrow, may not meet fire code? That wing appears to be full time people who smoke and hallways stale from old stagnant smoke. Residents in that wing keep big rock to keep door open 24/7, heard people throughout night coming and going for short visits. Parking area I was told to park...

I stayed with 3 other people in a room with two queen beds. The mattresses are very old, ruined and falling apart. The pillows were terrible! Sheets and towels were stained with mystery stains. The sink in the bathroom was rusted and we ended up finding some sort of brown/orange crap all over the toilet seat.. another mystery. The wall...

The front desk was awesome. Hand towels had holes in them. Pillows were ok, we had 4 since they only had a Kingsized bed but the pillowcases were pilled and should have been replaced. Bed was reasonably comfortable even with a bad back. The Continental Breakfast was marginal. I grabbed a yogurt and ran. The hot water for tea had...

Typical road side hotel/motel. Could have been a little cleaner and is in need of an upgrade but the night sleep was fine and the price was fair. Appeared to be a spot that contract workers stay on a regular basis.

We're a young family plus a dog travelling across Canada on a budget. We were mostly unimpressed with this hotel. The only pet-friendly rooms are in the smoking section (which they didn't tell us upon checking in) and the windows in the rooms don't open. The room was quite clean, with the exception of the coverlet which had hairs on...

It was after 9:00 p.m., we stopped for the night, tired, and not willing to move on to another place. Expensive but it didn't seem too bad until I examined the bathroom! The ceiling vent was covered in dust. The tub tap and shower head were away from the wall, exposing the pipes. We were in a non-smoking room, yet...

“No real views to the hotel. At the front is the highway with a bus stop and to the rear it is just trees and more trees.”
