Good: Large room. Clean. Comfortable bed. Nice fridge. Ok breakfast. Great location. Bad: Horrible pillows. Toilet didn’t flush properly. Windows don’t open. Air conditioner loud. Grumpy lady at front desk in the morning. Disgusting, filthy carpets leading up the steps to the rooms.

We stayed in room 210 and were very disappointed. We checked in with the bartender because the Front Desk was not staffed. The room itself was small and smelled awful! We asked the bartender if we could switch rooms, but he didn’t know what rooms were open or cleaned. We wanted to leave, but he couldn’t adjust our bill, but our credit card was already charged and we would have to come back the next day to ask for a refund. Unfortunately we ended up staying. We turned the air conditioning to max to try to move the air around and cut down on some of the smell. The bathroom was musty and moist and the grout in the shower was moldy. We used our “Provincial Park Comfort Station” skills to keep from touching the walls. The bathroom floor was sticky, as if it was cleaned with the wrong product and it didn’t dry properly. The shower pump was very loud and the sink drained very slowly. The carpet had a discoloured ring where the vacuum just doesn’t reach. The lamp on one side of the bed was broken. There were 2 tvs on one dresser, one in front of the other, and that was just weird. The small desk and chairs looked like they were from a garage sale (not antiqued, just old) and were spread along the wall in a row from the door to the fireplace. None were usable because the room was really small. The linens and towels were clean. We needed an additional pillow, but didn’t know where to ask. The continental breakfast was very limited. Bagels and muffins were fresh enough, but one side of the toaster was broken. Peanut butter, cream cheese and raspberry jam (no other flavours) were available. We didn’t try the cereal. Cold drinks were limited to orange juice and milk. There were no alternative dairy options and no water available. We did run into staff on the morning of our stay, but they did not seem interested in talking. They responding to our “Good morning” and then said “OK” when we checked out. This hotel has amazing potential but it needs some serious TLC!

In a recent stay, we came back to the room at 5 o'clock after a day of golf. Even though the make up our room sign was on the door, completely nothing had been done. Our wet towels were still laying on the floor and over the tub in the bathroom, none of the garbage has been emptied, and the beds were not made up. Upon requesting some compensation at checkout, we were told by the manager that we were already on a corporate rate. Therefore, we were not compensated for any of the troubles we experienced. Another issue is the absence of an elevator. My roommate has a disability and had a very difficult time climbing the stairs to the third-floor. Finally, the pop machines do not dispense beverages even though you put your money in. Getting your money back from the front desk it's like pulling teeth.

Location: Terrific! Directly in the middle of the square in Goderich. Building : Historical building - outside is beautiful. Inside is clean, except for carpeting that is dirty and gives off a horrible odor (especially in the hallway of our second floor). Also, there are no elevators (in case stairs are an issue for you ). Check in : Not pleasant. Not welcoming. Room : Clean , except again for very old carpet, ancient drapes and odour from carpeting. Breakfast: complimentary... Bagels, cereal, toast. We ended up going to "Steve & Mary's" on the corner (which was fabulous) . Overall: For the price and location and Historical building it was fine for us. The only real downfall was the odour from the carpeting throughout the hallway and room & unfriendliness of owner and son.

I stayed here two years ago and although old, creaky and distinct smells filled the rooms and halls it was fun. Now I was told there are new owners , the nightly rate has increased significantly and the service is non-existent. No front desk staff ever, continental breakfast appears to sit unchecked for days (thank goodness there is Tim’s nearby). The restaurant downstairs made my daughter sick. Not worth it for even one night. The 1 star is for location only.

Hotel was clean with comfortable beds. It’s 3 stories with no elevator which is not great. We were on second floor and just took up a bag with what we needed instead of lugging our suitcases up. We had a 2 yr old so it wasn’t easy with a little kid as the stairs were long. It had a pub like restaurant downstairs which was busy and they were short help. The poor waiter was running trying to serve everyone. Food was good though. We phoned hotel and they said rate was $105, so we went online and got it for $72 plus tax $84. So always phone ahead and then check online to know your options. When we travelled out west 5 years ago we sometimes got rates $15 cheaper than online when we walked into motels. Because online sites add $15 commission to their rates.

Awesome location and near to 3 beautiful beaches. Many restaurants and stores nearby. Even all attractions are pretty much surrounding the hotel. Breakfast provided was good and healthy. Would love to come back again. Goderich is indeed the most peaceful city in Ontario, Canada

Great central location on the square with many shops & restaurants conveniently nearby. Close to drive to beach, waterfront area. No elevator so not comfortable for anyone with walking or climbing stairs ability. Rooms were very small & very dated style but knew going in that there accommodations were as stated. Had a front of hotel room facing the street, expected it to be noisy with all the pubs/bars nearby but was very reasonably quiet. Room was clean but very dated style & should be upgraded to maintain their standard. Staff on check in were friendly & courteous. Arrived a little early so waited in the pub next door awaiting our check in time period.

From the exterior, this hotel looks lovely and historic. The location on the main square is ideal. Prices per room are a bargain. Parking is convenient on the street. The food at Paddy’s is quite good and reasonable price wise. The beds are very comfortable. But, the charm ends there. The room smells musty and old. The carpet is worn and dirty. The floors are uneven making it an unusual experience to walk across to the bathroom. To say it needs updating is an understatement. It needs an interior gut job. I feel bad saying this because I fully recognize the historic potential of the place. But this isn’t the place to stay for a romantic weekend or a gathering of friends. It’s just going end up being a disappointment unless you’re price driven. I hope the owners do something major to renovate it because it has a lot of potential.

From the minute I opened the room door, it was terrible(the smell of death). It's nice and cheap for a reason. Please take my word for it, save your $ and stay somewhere else. Only reason we didn't change rooms is cause the whole town was booked with weddings. Will never return to this place.
