This was our second time at this motel is as many years. We like it while motorcycling in the region. The owners are very friendly and helpful. They even advised us at time of booking that getting food in the area would be difficult during our visit because of Covid closings and a busy race weekend. The rooms are very clean and equipped withy a fridge, kettle, microwave and use of a common barbeque. Wi-fi is excellent. Ice is available free at the office. Beds are very comfortable. Patio chairs outside every room for the smokers or to enjoy an after ride drink in the open air. Will certainly stay again on our next trip. Highly recommend.

A great spot close to everything! Very gracious host & a welcoming environment. A great place to stay even during these challenging times! We were on a motorbike trip & they even brought us towels to wipe the morning dew of the bikes- so thoughtful!

We have stayed several times. The Inn is super clean and comfortable! It has a rural feel to it. A 5 min walk to a nice restaurant next door. There are rooms front and back....the back is so peaceful and quiet. Hosts Sue and Eric go out of their way to accommodate. I left a sweater and they mailed it to my home!! Totally recommend!

As far as basic lodging goes, this places does it very well. Rooms are very clean, beds are comfortable, fridge, microwave, wifi, friendly and helpful owners. If you don't need a pool, bar, gym and other frills, this works just fine.

Zero stars. Sent very rude emails after I booked with hotels.com telling me to cancel. The hotel also has a 100% no refund policy. Yeah. I had to spend hours on the phone with the booking company to get a refund since this hotel has a no cancellation policy so I couldn't just cancel as they DEMANDED. If I did I would be out the money and the hotel would still get paid in full. Uhmm... All in caps, just like that as if I somehow offended them by renting a room. Incredibly rude. hotels.com was great and also unimpressed by this hotels lack of organization and professionalism. I cannot believe they treated paid customers this way. I have never seen such terrible customer service before. Amazed they are still open.

It is a challenge to run a small motel. In this particular instance we received the reservation from EXPEDIA. We just recently signed on with EXPEDIA and have had difficulty with communication re RATES and CHARGES. I wanted clarification on their charges! They charge 18% commission and then there is a 10% discount rate on the rooms. I had no idea what this extra 10% DISCOUNT was that they were offering on MY ROOMS. I tried to get answers and to no avail. 30% off the top of my regular room rates was not something I was prepared to accept in the BUSY SEASON! When this reservation came in I immediately informed LISAL200 to CANCEL because I didnot have that that option and I did not want her to show up with no room. I DID NOT RECEIVE ANY MONEY AS SHE INDICATED i WAS PAID IN FULL!!! iT IS UNFORTUNATE. The booking companies are very difficult to deal with and get answers on communication. As a small motel that has only the summer months to make income that affords the opportunity to keep offering CLEAN, COMFORTABLE ACCOMMODATION to the traveling public WE DO OUR BEST! our rooms are MODERN and CLEAN and GUEST REVIEWS indicate that as well as GREAT HOSPITALITY. ZERO STARS basically shows the RATING SYSTEM LEAVES MUCH TO BE DESIRED!!

My husband and I decided to check out this cute little establishment for an overnight, as we checked out the Calibogie area. The room was spotless and roomy. Sue, our lovely hostess, checked us in and offered up information for us and a map! We loved our location, as it was across the street (walking distance) from the Calibogie Resort Lodge and very close to the hil,l where we managed some hiking trails. Restaurants were close by as well. I would absolutely recommend this motel, as they seem very conscientious about the property and how their customers are liking it!

I came through your establishment this past Saturday late evening. I was the cold and wet motorcyclist looking for a place to stay. Depstie not having a room over a very busy weekend, I wanted to thank you for the hospitality you showed me me by allowing me to charge my phone, use your phone to call my wife so she wouldn't worry, get my rain gear on, warm up and finally pulling out a map and getting me back on the right track. I know the kind woman was worried about me getting home safely that night, so here I am letting you know that I did - I was just a little cold. I'll be sure to get back to Calabogie very soon and this time with reservations at your inn. Thank you again for your warmth and hospitlaity.

We stayed here one night. It was a less expensive option than other motels in the area. It was a little rough around the edges but very clean. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant a short walk up the road and the food was very good and reasonably priced. A convenience store is right across the road so you can pick up snacks.

We appreciate all the feed back. Our website portrays the motel as it is. It is modern, clean ,reasonably priced and the owner very hospitable. We deliver what we promise. "ROUGH around the EDGES" does not allow for us to see where improvement is needed. It is always disappointing when we are described as OK when we deliver a very good package for the price. None of the motels in the area are as clean or offer the hospitality we do. Often people expect "MORE", but what is the basis for this expectation when our website clearly describes our establishment and we then are depicted as "OK"

Booked through an online service then was emailed by the hotel to tell me I needed to pay the service a $71 cancellation fee and book through their website because they did not want to pay the %15 commission. Additionally, when I logged in to Booking.com I later updated the occupancy of my 2 bed hotel room to two, as the functionality was not supported earlier; I was told I was sneaky and probably made more money then the pressumable owners of the hotel based on my email address. See ridiculous correspondence attached and be advised. My advice, save the headache of having to call your CC company and book somewhere else.

This individual, GRAHAM MOORE, works for TOYOTA--an ENGINEER. He sure can manipulate the facts. He was informed that there would be NO CANCELLATION FEE. He was informed that there was a communication error regarding BOOKING.COM and we were no able to accept this reservation. The reservation is for SEPTEMBER, 2018. Within 24hrs. of booking he was informed of the problem. He has 5 months to book a room so we did not leave him sleeping on the street! The room and price is listed or ONE PERSON. He wanted to have two people accommodated for the price of ONE. I explained we are a small seasonal business and could offer very nice accommodation at a reasonable price if he contacted us via our website. WE did our best. Can't please everyone.
