Please read this if you ever consider going.
I arrived late evening on June 17, tired after riding over 700 km and dropped. In the morning I stepped in the shower and the horror started. There was log hair on the tub, on the shower wall, in the sink, there was drier urine and pubic hair under the toile seat, on the toiled rim. Disgusting. I went and brought the guy at the reception, he said sorry, I don't know what maid did. I tell what she did, NOTHING! I was afraid to touch anything after that. Thar room was not cleaned. The guys appearance was not a flint better than the room. He was "representing" the place perfectly.

Nothing was right. I asked for a non-smoking but the room stenched of tobacco or weed. Large burns of the carped and furniture, the bed was just made in a rush with stained cover sheets...lots of pictures attached

No wonder I was the only person in the motel. There was another car when I woke up, that's it.
Do yourself a favor and do not stay there. It is overpriced anyway for a road side motel and filthy! I had no choice as there was no other places in the area. Plan accordingly.

Had to call, office not open. Told room # and it was unlocked, key in room, both doors were unlocked. Had required a NON-smoking room. Room smelled like smoking room, very powerful smell. Bedding smelled awful. NO hot water. Ran hot water tap in tub, sink and second tub for 10 minutes with no success. Called to cancel rest of stay due to family emergency. Was told to call booking agency and was given the run-around with them and hotel management. Ended up paying for the three days. No receipt. No other rooms were used at time of stay. Recommend staying elsewhere.

As I was looking for a central location while I spent the month touring the area.
Spanish was central for touring and reconnecting with friends from the past.

As well looking up the many Lions Clubs in surrounding areas.

Central to Elliot Lake, Espanola, Sault St. Marie, Blind River, Little Current and many other small communities, lots of history.

From Day one Diane and Steve made me and my dog Hunter feel right at home. Room was fresh, bed comfortable, washroom and amenities good. Hunter loved the dog treats and own towels.

Lots of amenities near buy, groceries, take out food, banking and lots of history.

Any issues that arose were quickly dealt with by management.

Hunter and I will be back for sure.

I had my own Covid self test kit that I used weekly, always negative.

Service was friendly. Arrived late. Clean sheets and towels. That’s all was needed. Bed was a little sqeeky, but was ok to sleep on. Other than that it was an ok night. Possible chairs outside the rooms?

You know how sometimes the negative hotel reviews on Expedia can seem a bit whiny? Not for this place. Its all that and more. Avoid unless you REALLY need a roof, and u cant find anything within a 2 hour drive. Carpets suspect. Mattresses sagging, bedding just threadbare and greyish. Bathroom battered, toilet unsteady. AC window unit passable. No key to front door (motel lot) of room. If you leave, you need to bang on the restaurant door until the desk dude comes through your room from an inner corridor and opens door for you. Inner corridor reeks of cigarettes. Very weak chain style security bolts on outside door, none on inside door. Restaurant dark, sticky, grimy windows, with debris and unused fixtures scattered about. Kitchen filthy (u can see it when u check in at the bar.)

We have been calling daily to obtain a copy of receipt for charges for a hotel stay mid October. We are told daily to call back later or the person who answers says he is not working right now and call at a different time that the owners need to send the receipt and he has been asking them daily. Out team has been staying at this location for work. We started booking direct with them and it has called substantial issues. Just a heads up they are not quick to deal with issues and will give you the run around for weeks. I've never in my life experienced a business that answers the phone and then says to call back later because they are closed or on break. Its a daily thing. Maybe they cant produce a receipt because they are laundering money? Who knows the reason but it seems very very sketchy.

This place should be taken out of Trip Advisor. We had a reservation and when we got to the place I thought my husband was pulling a "gotcha". It was awful on the outside and we decided it didn't look safe. If the outside was any example of how it was taken care of I can't imagne how awful it would be on the inside. WHAT IS TRIP ADVSOR THINKING?
