Pine Tree Motel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Eganville
Reviewed 11 July 2015

I had to stay in the Eganville area for one night on a business trip. Firstly, there isn't much selection in the area, and what options you have are overpriced. At $60 a night, this was by far the cheapest option for accommodation in the area… and this really is a case of 'you get what you pay for'.

The place is a dump. I had a hard time getting into my room, because the door was stuck. Once I got it open, I almost knocked over the TV, which was awkwardly balanced on a little makeshift table right inside the door. Closing the door was equally difficult. I had to lean into it with quite a bit of my weight to get it to latch shut.

The room had a small fridge which was not plugged in, and two microwave ovens. One was sitting in the middle of the floor, and the second was on top of the fridge. Neither were plugged in. I plugged in the one on the fridge, and it started beeping at me. I set the clock, and it stopped. Within a couple minutes, the microwave had reset and it was beeping again. I unplugged it… I did not use it.

The bathroom was disgusting. The light fixture was filled with dead bugs and the shower head had mould on it. There was a towel behind the toilet to absorb the leaking water connection on the toilet. There was a dead bug (I don't even know what it was) on the towel. Everything was mouldy, rusty, and dirty. The sink was in the 'bedroom' beside the fridge.

Decor… not important, but ugly as sin. Junky old lamps, and a mirror leaning against the wall.

There was a very small, very old, very loud, air conditioner (window-style) mounted in a hole cut out of the wall at ceiling height - not exactly convenient for adjusting the controls.

There was no alarm clock in the room, which is something that I take for granted until it's not there. That's a pretty basic amenity to have in a room. There was also no coffee maker in the room, even though the motel's website says that they have them in the rooms.

FREE INTERNET!!! Yes, if you can get it to work. Once I got the password from the office, I was able to connect my laptop, and got weak and sporadic service that would cut in & out. The signal was so weak my phone wouldn't even recognize their network, never mind connecting to it.

This place is terrible. At $60 a night my expectations were extremely low, and I was still disappointed.

Rooms are out dated-shag carpets,,,,big hole in bathroom door covered with wood,,,,no chain lock in hotel door,,,,,,,but it was quiet and served the purpose for us. Have to ask for the internet password and the connection is not the best.Maintenance man was on call for our complaints about the lock.Bathroom sink outside the washroom.

We were supposed to stay somewhere else, but after a booking error this was the only place available and close to where we needed to be.
The pictures online are not accurate at all! The orange shag carpet is the same as it was 15 years ago. The claim of 'newly renovated' only goes as far as fresh paint on the doors and new chairs outside the rooms. The bathtubs are filthy and full of grime, the pillows are paper thin and the mattress protector is meant to be only for a twin bed.
The internet was available and fairly dependable, but that is one of the only saving graces.
This place is in need of a lot of work, and given the choice, I would never stay here again.

It has been about 3 years since our last stay, and this place certainly has not improved. The rooms are still very dated, 1970's era.
Whoever cleaned the room, had "febrezed" the *((^^**+ out of it. I didn't want us sitting on the comforter because it was hard to tell how clean it was, so I folded back the comforter, and there was a very large yellow stain on the underside. Yuck!! The sheets and pillowcases smelled like they had been washed with a bit of bleach, which was fine with me, however the pillow itself smelled funky and was about as thick as a pancake. The mattress was hard. The carpet was vacuumed, but still looked dirty, and I wore slippers the whole time. The bathroom was dated, but clean, and the water was hot. As long as a room and the linens are clean, I really don't care if the décor is dated, but it's very sad to see how run down the motel has gotten over the years.

We had booked a room a full month in advance and asked if their rooms were the same as their ad for new rooms of the same price. They had said yes, that they would put us in a new room.

We arrived on the second, and the rude, smelly woman at the front desk put us in room 10. I'm not sure if this was one of their 'new rooms', but if it is then it's quite frankly disgusting. Orange shag carpeting with a melted hole in it is the first thing we see. The beds have not been changed from the last guests aside from the top covers. The mirror in the bathroom is too high for a 5"5 woman to reach... the shower was unusable, it was filled with mildew and cracks. What's worse is that we had checked the mattresses for bugs, they seemed fairly clean so we slept on them... haven't had much experience with bedbugs, but sure enough, we got em. In our things too. There were enough that someone before us had obviously noticed them. There was no (working) internet even though they told us there was and that was part of the price. They rudely ushered us out at 11 am and we are yet to receive a refund.

For 80 or so (100 dollars after tax) the accommodation listed would be lovely if it was anything like the posting. If you want bugs and mildew, go ahead and stay for however long you like.
