The Deer Lake Motel is not fancy, but it is clean and very comfortable. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was stocked with a nice selection of amenities. This is a great place to stay after disembarking from the Port Aux Basques ferry. They welcome late arrivals and you can carve some time off your long drive if you are going onward to Eastern Newfoundland.
We were very, very pleasantly surprised with the quality of food in the restaurant. They have a wide range of tasty food including veggie burgers, a rarity in Newfoundland. It is open until 10:00 pm which certainly helps when you are coming from the ferry. We liked the restaurant so much that we stopped for lunch on our return trip to Port Aux Basque. It was a Sunday and it was packed with Newfoundlanders enjoying brunch.
Best of all, they are very pet friendly. At check-in the desk staff demanded to meet my dog and when they did they showered him with love. We are always thrilled when quality accommodations allow responsible pet owners to prove that animals and guests can co-exist happily and peacefully.
I highly recommend the Deer Lake Motel.More
