Pros.
Cushioned headboards and antiskid bathtub mats .With a toddler, we were grateful for these little things.
On highway, accessible.
Decent clean rooms, microwave on request.
Good sized fridge.
Pest repellent machine.

Cons. Wifi and mobile connectivity was not there in the room. When we called reception , we were told it is connecting in lobby. but we did not try going to lobby.
Wish they had pay and use service for wifi.
Room insulation was not very good..so staying there in winter may be difficult.

Overall, a pretty decent experience and we got what we paid for. Would stay there if we visit the place again

We stayed here a few years ago and it was great……... New owners took over I promise you it is so NOT worth the money they are asking we want with a group of people so had several rooms one room when he pulled back the covers had someone’s charger cable in it. So obviously they had just pulled 5e covers over from 5e last guest another room the towels were actually dirty she was not very happy no microwaves in any room shower in another room was disgusting with stains all over the bath tub and walls just generally dirty rooms outside. There were dead plants in pots scattered around none of us would go back even if they cleaned the place up the prices are totally ridiculous for the quality in truth I would give it minus stars also wifi. Was terrible.

This motor inn has ample parking right on #6 highway before you get into Wiarton. It is a little remote from town, Tim Hortons etc. It is a quiet location with a working farm across the highway. We could hear the cows mooing from the parking lot. There is lots of green space around the motel. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful and friendly. The bathrooms were clean.

Absolute disaster! I stayed at motels before, but never had I experienced such a disgusting feeling. Motels are simple, but clean. Not this place!
There is dust, cobwebs, and unbearable smell of uncleaned bathrooms. They charge you though as if you stay at a good hotel. We paid 560$ for two nights!!! It was a long weekend, but still.
What really disappointing is that it is a relatively good location. Close to so many beautiful sights... and the only thing this motel is lucking is cleanliness.
We could not even use the water from the tap to brush our teeth... had to use the bottled water.
No need to mention, I guess, that there is no Internet, no TV ( I mean there is one in your room, but it is not working).

Rented a room here overnight but conditions were disgusting. Went to office to leave and get a refund and there was actually a line up of people trying to get one. The owners refuse to refund anyone and expedia won't refund unless we get the owners okay. Please don't rent here. The rooms aren't kept clean and there is no satisfaction.

I booked this room back in Dec. for my sons wedding in June 22nd / 24
I must say from the moment I entered I could smell cigarette smoke in room , I asked for non smoking because of my bad asthma, no working tv , no phone , no lamps , dirty , no internet even after I asked for password? , stains on furniture , one. Comforter on bed that’s it , I took my own bedding with me but didn’t take out of bag afraid something would crawl on it , pest sensor plugged in for mice omg !!!! Really
I grabbed my stuff and loaded up car and drove home in the dark which is why I booked the room in the first place I’m local and couldn’t believe the rooms or asking people for cash ?? They were awful the rooms wouldn’t let my dog stay there !!
I lost $ 362.00 cash for an hour stay and No Refund !!
Don’t go to this motel !!!!!

Not sure how these reviews work but our room had a horrible bathroom unsuitable for use. The bathtub was rusted out among other issues so we left. Owners would not refund us. Please be careful. We are not fussy people, we realized this was a motel in a small town but we could not stand to be in the room. We ended up leaving and driving all night to get home. Our trip was ruined!

What a misery this place is ... sad and neglected. It is run down, grungy, and just a sad, depressing place. Not at all worth the money, and service, including wifi, is largely absent. Best to try somewhere else.

We ate in their restaurant as had read some good reviews. First thing stepping in the door, noticed dirt all over the floor that could easily have been swept up. The windows looking out over the highway were filthy as well. Always makes me wonder the condition of the kitchen when I see these things. The portions were big but I would suggest not ordering one of their dinners as the majority of the one I got was very dry rice and french fries. We went there re the Greek type menu items but would not order a dinner again. Even the meat seemed quite dry so all in all for $22 it was a big disappointment. If you are looking for healthier menu items, I don't think this is the place to go. Usually Greek food is yummy. My meal came with a salad of our choice which was fine. If you ordered a sandwich and salad, you'd probably be happy (if you don't mind the dirt). I was hoping that it would be a great addition to the area. Some seem to like it re the large portions. I will always give a place a 2nd try and hopefully things will improve. They seemed to be doing a number of take out orders. The restaurant itself it tiny - like a small hotel breakfast area. Maybe the new owners have a lot on their plate and will get around to attending to things I have mentioned when they get used to their new business. Appeared to be a husband and wife team. I wish them luck.

I feel awful, because the service was great but our motel stay was awful. The rooms we're very dirty, stained carpets and I mean stained, the room smelt like sewer. Beds we're very uncomfortable, the A/C units we're so gross and smelly. The room smelt so muggy the bathroom has so much dirt in the tiles. When we showered it was like a slimy water hard to explain. Expensive for what you got. Bonus! only 15 mins from Sauble. Unfortunately we would never stay here ever again, not even if it was free. Also, strange they keep asking for an etransfer instead of credit.
