Hadn't stayed here for a while as it hadn't been maintained - new owners seem to be trying hard and it is just as good or better than Westway to me. Owner was helpful and 2 room suite was much more comfy than regular 2 bed room and worth the extra couple bucks.

Would be 4 stars but still needs some updating and the bar next door needs to be open!!!! Also free wifi but very unstable and slow.

Thank you for your review. Internet barrier has been fixed now. Year ago we had not much choice in our town now town has more options for internet. We also update local network with new technologies so every room you can get fast and reliable internet. Hope to see you again.

Chimo Motel has one of the most affordable prices in town. Always stay here when heading east or west on highway 11, right off the highway close to fuel stations and restaurants. Nice clean rooms, linen and bathrooms.

Once again, we were not disappointed. Its in a convenient location close to restaurants, Tim Hortons, and the grocery store. The room was clean and comfortable and affordable for a family on a limited budget. Thank you to the owners for providing a clean and affordable place to rest up for families that are travelling.

The owner was incredibly rude to me, I had a small pug and he called me as I was sight seeing to say my dog was barking and I needed to get back immediately. I stood outside the door listening, when he called again. He said my dog was barking, I was right there. The concrete floors were freezing at night. In the end I got (some) of my money back and ran to a better place. The room smelled like something died... Poor management skills in general, pet or not, stay elsewhere.

As a father of eight children, I can't tell you how fortunate it is to find a clean and affordable motel while travelling with your family. Chimo provides that. It has all you need. It is clean, comfortable, nice washroom/shower/tub, tv, and free internet. Who needs fancy hotel amenities and a continental breakfast when you just want to sleep, shower, and go. There is a Tim Hortons and a Subway across the way and a very nice Chinese food restaurant next door. U-Haul to boot too. I will definitely stay here again on my next time through Cochrane.

Horrible, don't go there. Owner not pleasant. bathrooms have mould. Rooms are cold.
We had an absolute horrible time getting to Cochrane, broke down on route in North Bay. Had to stay in North Bay and also pay for our room in Cochrane as our kids were already at the Chimo Motel. we spoke to the owner via phone, explained we would be there late the next day. he screamed at me and demanded payment right away. we said no problem, we would take care of the next day as pre-arranged but he demanded immediate payment and was rude and yelled at my son for no reason. This man has absolutely no people skills what so ever! Once we arrived in Cochrane the day after, we stayed at the West way and had a wonderful time

Thank you for your review and sorry for late respond,I just registered to day to respond.. I understand your frustration as your car broke down and you had to pay for one room at our place for your son and one for yours in North Bay, but that was something not under our control. I was favouring you by giving a room to your son upon condition that you are coming late night and you will pay room next day morning. As I was told by your son that you can not make until next day afternoon, so I tried to preauthorized your card and it was decline. I show the decline receipt to you son and he was upset and yelling, I called you to get another card and you did the same thing my friend. You told me that you are not giving me permission to preauthorized on your card. Sir it was a long weekend and it might possible that your car can not be fixed and you may cancel your trip to Cochrane, What if next morning your son left the key in a room and gone who do we ask for payment, as your card was declined. You should understand that most hotel not give you a key before payment or preauthorized your card. There is no mold, room is clean our policy: guest deserve the right to see the room before he decide to stay. Also after he checked in, within 15 minutes if he think room is not worth the price paid for or report anything we can change the room or cheerfully give a full refund.

I've been staying here for over 20 years. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, they have all the amenities such as fridge, microwave, coffee pot, etc. The owner is friendly & will do anything to help you. If you're looking for a reasonably priced room with all the comforts of home I highly recommend the Chimo Motel. I look forward to staying here for many more years to come.

My husband is English and a huge soccer fan and it was the day England played against Sweden! The owners was very kind enough for us to stay a bit longer to watch the match! It was affordable, had everything we needed (from a comfortable bed, great TV, to hot shower - much needed things when you are on the road for long!). I definitely recommend this place and will come again when we come through Ontario and Cochrane in the future.
