do NOT stay there! We arrived in the tiny, dirty room (that was supposed to just have been cleaned) and when we sat down on the squeaky bed, after removing a few hairs from the pillow cases, a BAT started flying around in the room in the middle of the afternoon (I guess it was hiding under the bed?). We jumped on the floor and chased it out the door with our towels and then gave the keys back to the front desk asking for a reimbursement. The girl at the front desk tried calling her manager (Aaron) who wasn't answering his phone so she gave us his number and told us to call him later to get a refund. When we reached him he said "refunds were not his policy" and that we could "get attacked by a seagull on the beach as well" so a bat on our room was really not his problem. We still rented another hotel room for that night and are still trying to get the $200 we spent on that s***hole back.

WIFI and Netflix was advertised, the internet was spotty, not available on our phones and unless you have an account with Netflix you cannot sign in.
There is no cable TV.

There were no hooks to hang wet towels in the washroom or anywhere else.
There were no shelves to put bags etc. on.
The washroom floor was wet after a shower, it was so bad that the water seeped into the room.
We had to leave the using open at night because they were too long and covered the window air conditioner.
The washroom did not have an electrical outlook.to.plug in my blowdryer.

I could see that they are renovating, the walls seemed freely painted and the floor was new.it was difficult to maneuver my car in the parking lot, parking is very tight.

The ladies working at the motel were nice and friendly.
The motel is a 2 mi ute walk to the beach wich for us was a bonus.

This place should be condemned. Didn't even use the shower because it was gross. provided small bath towels. no hand towels or facecloths. TV connection didn't work. this is a bare, bare minimum hotel. Outside is overtired and needs work. limited parking room. was rated by booking.com as a 2 star - nope. the only thing going for it was the location and the staff. I would not stay here ever again. the hotel room for one night during the week was over $200 including taxes - NOT worth it!

From check in to check out everything was smooth and enjoyable. Julie was an absolute gem and was able to accomodate us when we arrived at 11am, looking to park for the day and come back to check in. She was so sweet and not only accommodated our request to park but actually let us check in early. The rooms are basic but we're clean and have everything you need for a beach getaway! Mini fridge, TV with Netflix, A/C, a toilet, sink and shower along with plenty of hooks to hang out wet clothing. There were chairs, picnic tables and BBQ outside for your use as well.

You must keep in mind that most of these motels have been around a long time, so don't come to Wasaga and expect Hilton hotel accommodations for motel prices. The service, price and fact that it is literally a 2 minute walk from the beach make it one of the best places to stay in Wasaga!

LCBO, Beer store, shops and food are also a 2 minute walk away. I would definitely stay again.

Thank you again Julie for your wonderful hospitality, you truly made our stay enjoyable!

This is an honest low cost motel in a great location. It's only a few yards to the beach as well as essential stores eg Beer Store and LCBO.
The rooms are basic but adequate, with comfortable beds and amenities. We had room 6 which is actually two bedrooms and three double beds. The window a/c unit kept us comfortable and heaters are provided. The fridge, microwave, and tv worked well.
Several barbecues are provided for communal use. LPG is included, so no need for charcoal.
Picnic tables and some outdoor chairs dot the veranda where it becomes quite convivial as guests enjoy the evening.
This is a motel run by friendly and helpful people. Some guests may become rather boisterous and loud, so is probably more attractive to outgoing sociable people, rather like a campsite.

AWFUL…Very bad experience. Our room was not clean, our door did not even shut, the rickety bed was covered black long hair, the floors were very uneven and we were welcomed by a swarm of 800 flies once we got our door open. The shower/bathroom was very very gross. I would never even think of using it. For being “newly renovated” it is far from being clean and welcoming and I would not want to know what it looked like before renovations. We booked our stay for 2 nights and had to leave after 5 minutes of being there knowing we could NOT seep here. When we arrived to check in and there was no parking unless we paid to park across the street. We were told to park on the side of the road on the grass in front of the building. We were very rudely told to come back later because of room wasn’t ready, this was the first red flag. For the price we paid, this is a complete scam. After seeing this place I would not pay over $20 to stay here. For charging so much to stay here, they should use their money to build a new place.

Pretty much what I expected from reading the reviews, I had to check-in by phoning the hotel (in the rain). I was frustrated trying to open the lockbox in a storm.
Beds are uncomfortable. We booked a 2 bedroom suite, A/C didn’t really work and was only in one of the rooms.

It is a great location, quick walk to the beach, LCBO, shops etc. My daughter enjoyed the Netflix in the room.

I found it odd there was no garbage can, not in the bathrooms or bedrooms. We had to find our own. Also no glasses for water. I recommend bringing your own water anyway, the tap water wasn’t great.

It wasn’t the best but not the worst motel I’ve stayed in. I would stay somewhere else next time I visit Wasaga but we still had a good experience nonetheless.

I can’t believe any online booking company would offer this property. I reported them to the Wasaga Municipality and filled out a citizen’s complaint form. Inspectors will be inspecting this motel. It was infested with bugs, filthy dirty, refilled shampoo and conditioner bottles and the lock on the door in adequate. It was not safe. This place was disgusting. I requested a full refund and have received not a penny back. The pictures below were taken of room 2 on July 08, 2021. This room was supposed to be upgraded from the first room they tried to put me in. Room 10. Can you only imagine what that room look like.

At 4:30 in the morning a stranger pushed through the door and entered my room while my girlfriend and I were sleeping. woke up abruptly and had to wrestle him out the door in my underwear. The lock on the door did not work. The man then entered the front seat of my car and attempted to go to sleep. I had to physically remove this person from my vehicle. Attempted to reach manager with no response. Girlfriend spent the rest of the night sleeping with knife , and I barricaded door using sofa. Got no sleep. When I finally reached and reported this to the manager he seemed unconcerned and un phased. Left immediately but received no discount or refund. Do not stay here or book here!!! it is an absolute nightmare! This is the first review I have ever written on anything as I am never one to complain. This was insane, DO NOT STAY HERE!

Do not stay at this motel based on the website and photos.
My husband booked this room as it appeared to be clean and we had planned a short visit to Wasaga Beach. The photos showed what appeared to be a basic room with a bed and bath.
The photos must have been taken when the place was built back in the day. This motel is rundown, filthy dirty and not worth any dollar amount unless you just don't care about anything.
I'm too embarrassed to even write about what I saw in the bathroom indicating it was never cleaned by the last room guest. When I went to the office to find out if the room was cleaned the young girl at the desk was clearly annoyed and made the entire situation even worse with her attitude.
Interesting note, they hand you a roll of toilet paper when you check in. If that doesn't say it all!
There are no basic amenities such as towels, a trash can, soap etc....They don't mention this on their website.
The walls, floor and shower were very dirty and shower moldy. The limited furniture was old and worn. The lighting is very dim for a reason.
There are picnic tables in the parking lot and guests were still partying until 2:30 am as the office staff leaves and it is a free for all. I could go on, but the pictures will give you an idea.
We left and went to another motel down the street which was immaculate.
This motel should be torn down and rebuilt because it is a good location, close to the beach.
It gives Wasaga Beach a bad name.
One positive note, when we checked out Laura was at the desk and was very nice and understanding.
