The room was very dirty, found live bugs, said it was a non smoking room but you could smell it. It caused my asthma to flare up. Would of left if we could of found another room. When we were checking in the lady told us she was just vacuuming the room and we can put our things in, we left to visit friends and didn't get back till later that evening to find this. I guess the vacuum didn't reach those areas.
We stayed at the Princess Motel for one night while in Bobcaygeon. The room was a tad funky smelling to begin with but given the age of the building, I wasn't too surprised. The rooms had been painted at some point but the decor, bed, bathroom fixtures, etc. look like they may be original or close to. The air conditioning worked which was wonderful given the heat of the day. The water in shower shifted from warm to scalding and then to freezing at will on the day that we arrived. The following morning, it seemed to have righted itself. The bathroom was really dated although I did get a chuckle from the kitchen faucet setup on the sink. The overall cleanliness wasn't the greatest [black foreign substance on the bathroom floor that may have been falling from the ceiling and a long dark hair (not mine)], but we'd had a long day, and for one night, it wasn't a deal breaker. The price was a bit high (CAD$150) but the location was good - about a 5 minute walk from town. The room came supplied with hair and face products, hair dryer, towels ... Would I stay again? Unfortunately, no. There are other places in Bobcaygeon that offer what the Princess does without the bathroom "add-ons" for about the same price. All-in-all, a 1 on my will-be-back-o'meter.
We spent 2 nights at this motel. We have travelled the world and rarely to never, have we ever been in rooms that were so unclean. I gave it 2 stars rather than 0 as I appreciated that the motel was open over Christmas, and the beds were comfortable. We had 3 rooms in our group in the main building. ( room 1,3 and 4) We read the reviews about the motel being dated and frankly that is a real understatement. Putting that aside though, most of the surfaces in the rooms had not been wiped down at all in a very long time. The bathroom in room 3 was disgusting in that the mirror had old toothpaste stains, I found long black hairs in both the shower and floor. I knocked the trash can over and the side not facing me frankly looked like someone spit in it and missed. The tables in the rooms were sticky with old food. Underneath the sink in the bathrooms looked like they had not been cleaned in years. It all suggests neglect by the owners.
Room was rather dated and bathroom was a little grungy. Was ok to stop through for one night.
Owner was nice. Place was full for the night. Short walk into town for restaurants and shopping. Good breakfast spot just down the street.
We stayed at Princess Motel for three nights in September.
It was lovely! Everything was clean and we had all we needed (fridge, coffee machine, hairdryer + TV).
Wi-fi worked perfectly fine. The owner was very welcoming and we also had a nice chat with him! He even showed us his newest pride: the (Honeymoon)Suite which they just renovated themself!
Looked wonderful, has a Sauna and a heart shaped tub! Next time we are in Bobcaygeon, we will book this room!
Motel was also centrally located, but still quite enough for a good night sleep.
Restaurants, shopping facilities and the river were just around the corner.
Can highly recommend this Motel!
