No heat in our room. Belligerent customer service if booked online. Great location and very clean but also the suites are in the "old" building and therefore minimal. Comfy beds.... no toilet paper holder and $210/night after being quoted $374 on booking.com And do your own dishes while you freeze... and don't expect your complaints to be heeded. The breaker...

We stumbled across this by chance and were very positively surprised. It was clean, newly renovated, plain, but comfortable and quiet. If you are looking for an economic option to spend the night, this is perfect. Bed was very comfortable and we liked the kitchenette including decent size fridge, microwave, cutlery, plates etc. Generous bathroom with nice tub. Would definitely...

2 adults and 2 kids. We were extremely happy with the room we stayed in. Large bed for wife and I. And a great pull out couch for the kids. Fridge was a nice touch but wasn't all that cold. But helped. We will definitely be staying again. Very friendly staff as well.

We stayed here for one night as we needed dog friendly rooms. We were pleasantly surprised to find the rooms had been newly and completely refurbished! At the time of booking this was not obvious from the website so we were delighted. We had a room with a queen and a sofa bed. Additionally, there was a kitchenette with a...

This is a nice motel with great potential. The room I stayed in was very clean and spacious. The entire room was well laid out and newly renovated. It had a microwave, kettle, bar fridge and a couple cups. The one fault was no dresser as I really would have liked to unpack. I has potential to be much better...

Our room was clean and quiet. Just there for one night. Michael was a good host and was helpful for local knowledge. Again, only one day there so can't give a comprehensive review, but we were impressed with his eagerness to help. I'd stay there again.

With a BCAA discount one night in high season came to just over $111 for a well-appointed queen plus sofa-bed room with kitchenette in the new block of rentals of this First Nation owned business. The new central block offers slightly upscale appliances and fixtures, such as a larger capacity thermal coffee pot and individual room thermostats. Overall the room...

As a family with 2 children we chose to stay in one of the "two bedroom suites" so we would have a kitchen. The suites are definitely older, sparsely furnished, but clean and functional. Unfortunately we had zero service, housekeeping did not come once in our 4 day stay. Ran out of coffee on day 2 and needed a change...

This motel appears to be quite new, even has the new smell in the rooms which are very large though rather sparsely furnished for their size. Everything was very clean, very comfortable bed, fluffy towels and nice toiletries. There is a fridge, sink, microwave and a really good coffee machine with insulated pot which keeps coffee nice and hot. No...
