I stayed here back in October, thought I wrote a review, but must have forgotten. It was Thanksgiving week and we were a little desperate for a place. This was the only room available initially, so we had to take it. After inspecting a filthy room , literally blood on the sheets, oh and the smell!!!! We figured it'd be...

I've stayed in no frills motels, no problem. This place is downright gross and should be closed by public Health Dept. Paid $50 cash, owner bragged that he usually rents for $70! There are NICE choices around the area for under $70. Owner reeked of alcohol and couldn't stand straight or keep his balance. Was given one roll of toilet...

I left my room at 2am after an actual adult bed bug crawled across the blanket. I was in my car 60 seconds later. I am currently working to sanitize my car, bags, and all belongings that came into that filthy room. I had never seen a live one before, only pictures, but this insect was a textbook bed bug....

Stayed in this motel while vacationing in Peterborough for 1 overnight in early August. It was late and they only had 1 room remaining so i took it while checking in. The lady asked if i wanted to view the room and i should've taken her up on it, but didn't! Very unclean, mattress not comfortable. The bathroom... leaky faucet,...

We stayed there July 2014 for one night. We had stayed there approximately 7 years ago and it was quite nice. NOT ANYMORE!!!! Thank goodness it was only one night. We booked a smoking room and were put into a non-smoking room but the women at the front desk gave us an ashtray and said it was ok so I...

The owner is sweet and respectful one minute and yelling and screaming at guests the next, and honestly, for no apparent reason. The rooms are filthy and some of the room's walls have streaks of blood on them. Expect dirty bed linen in return for dirty bed linen, and the beds are at least 20 years old, or more. The...

My daughter and I stopped in at this roadside motel on our way back from Ottawa to Waterloo. It was late and we were on the return journey having driven to Ottawa earlier in the day. We were not looking for much - just a clean bed to sleep in for the night. Unfortunately, this place did not have clean...

I thought you get what you pay for but other motels down the road offer way better accommodation for the same and even less rates. I think the owners gave up on the hotel business a long time ago ...
