The hotel is not what it used to be. There was a faint odour of stale smoke in the room. Check-in staff were not pleasant, and insisted on photo ID to check in (which isn't necessarily at hand, given I live in the province, and didn't drive!), only finally backing off when I threatened to go elsewhere (is that even legal). They went on about fraud - which seems impossible given it was pre-paid through Travelocity, and I could provide a Visa card for damages. Breakfast was edible, but the breakfast room was clearly very understaffed, and the food put out was very minimal in quantity.

Hello, We are sorry that you have had a negative experience while staying with us. We are constantly updating our hotel since we have re-opened, and appreciate your feedback while doing so. It is our policy, as all other hotels in Ontario, to be provided a government issued photo I.D at check in. This is to verify address, and that the name on the credit card provided matches the person using it. This is to prevent fraud and to ensure the safety of our guests. If you have any further questions please contact our Guest Services Manager, John Kobylnik. Kind Regards, Guest Services

Check in was effortless and very accommodating. The free breakfast was amazing, best free breakfast ever had at a motel. Room was about average for cleanliness, not bad for the price.

After reading reviews which had me regretting booking, I called with concerns and was ‘upgraded’- to a room at first glance was ‘ok’. First I noticed oversized quilted pillowcase covers sticking out of cases too small - dingy and one was ripped. (Glad I brought my own cases as a precaution). Curtain off rail on one side, spots of peeling paint on some walls and doors; bathtub stained and had old adhesive strips - shower liner with some mildew at bottom- no curtain. Breakfast was pretty good. It is a cavernous place with seemingly only ‘occasional ‘ building upkeep. I will not return; my advice is to ask for a totally new room- which will most likely cost more than the hotel itself is worth.
