We have stayed here for years on our way back and forth from PEI to Ontario. This year we discovered that it had been sold and, while it still offers comfortable, clean rooms a a wonderful setting on the river, we missed the personal touch of the previous owners. And they filled in the pool! Also, they no longer confirm...

Stopped here on our way to Prince Edward Island with our 2 Border Collies. The room was small (Queen bed and pull out) and very clean. We were able to openly take our dogs out for a walk and even met a couple of Merle Border Collies. The gentleman who checked us in was very friendly and had no issue...

My room was facing the river & it was breathtaking. Wonderful owner, friendly & helpful. I definitely will return to such a great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful view they have. Great place & close to everything

This is our second time staying at this motel and we were not disappointed. The people running this motel are very friendly and helpful. We arrived later in the day and wanted to walk to a restaurant. The woman at the front desk suggested the restaurant across the street and called and made reservations for us. So very kind -...

The hotel is in a great location on a cliff overlooking the SL Seaway. Most rooms have a great view looking out to the ferry docks where the whale watching boats depart from. Lizane, the friendly woman that owns/manages the hotel is very pleasant and very helpful. When my wife told her it was my birthday, she insisted on making...

We have been staying here with our kids for several years running. It is exceptionally clean and convenient. The room is larger than in most hotels. The view of the river and consistently spectacular sunsets never gets boring. The service is unfailingly warm and welcoming. The pool is heated and always available (if it's locked you can ask for the...

Our family travells a lot and we were shocked at these accommodations. Our room was dated, extremely dusty, and smelled of smoke. The beds were like sleeping on a board. My husband is allergic to dust and had an allergy attack in the middle of the night and I felt like I was breathing smoke fumes from my pillow. When...

This motel is decent, but priced at least 20% too high for what you get. We were given a tiny room pool-side, so didn't have the benefits of the view. You can get coffee from the lobby, but no machine in the room. The owner was a bit rude over the phone when we were reserving and discussing the fact...

I have remedied my mistake with the date of our stay. We stopped one night on our way to Quebec City from New Brunswick. We were well received and offered a room with a view of the Saint Lawrence river. It was delightful so take your binoculars. I had planned to swim in the pool but the weather was unseasonably...

I read some amazing ratings on Trip Advisor, which is why I chose this motel. I paid $150 because I had a pet (which is more than other places I've stayed). Our pet-friendly room had a bit of a smell to it. We arrived at 6:30 and were leaving at 11am the following morning, travelling from PEI to Ontario. I...
