The staff went above and beyond to meet our needs. I would highly recommend this hotel. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. Accessibly wasn’t an issue because the rooms are on the ground floor.

The photos and reviews of the Willow Bend show a quite modern facility. And upon first entering the room, I would agree - until one notices some of the finer details. Its mostly very good ..... but. The hotel is very nice, and looks great in the first view. Its location is on a busy road, yet the sound transmission was quite low from the road (except for the emergency vehicle sirens that could be frequent). We were in one of the rooms (#109) close to the road / highway. The room appeared very clean and bright and wow, it was a very good size with a small kitchen nook that so so welcome as we tend to eat in. Where the '....... but' comes in is that there were so many little things that detracted from the initial high impression. They are small taken individually, but when lumped together they are indicative of a lack of attention to the details. And it is what separates this motel from being in a higher class. Some of the items we discovered included: - dead flies in the bathroom light fixture (not 1 or 2 flies, but 10 or 20) - a super comfy bed with an incredibly soft spot on one side that made it feel like the bed was on an incline - bright white paint highlited the old dull yellowed equipment that had not been replaced during the latest refresh, - a broken chair back on one of the kitchen chairs that is only noticable when sitting on it, - a toilet that was not installed at a slight angle to the wall (not an issue, but a sign of the lack of attention to detail) - no recycle bin in the room - the headboard was vinyl covered and it was cracked and split, again a replacement would have been good during the refresh - bad crack in the sidewalk outside of the room. It is a nice hotel, but it needs some good TLC to get it to a higher standard Will stay there again, if we find ourselves back in Truro. It was nice that they were not anal about Covid.

This motel is a wonderful find and will now be our only choice for accommodations in Truro. Karen, at the front desk, couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Check-in was totally efficient. Nestled in a cozy courtyard, the motel property feels like a secluded oasis. The rooms are impressively modern, well appointed, and fully equipped with all amenities to create a comfortable and convenient stay. It is quite obvious that cleanliness is a top priority for management and staff. The room is spotless! The bed was heavenly. The accommodations rival any of the higher priced hotel chains in which we have stayed. Perfect stay for business or personal. The rates cannot be beat!

Located on a busy street of Truro, near many restaurants but our room was very quiet. We had a suite which was to our satisfaction at a very competitive price. Ice available upon request at reception.
