My wife and I stopped here to look at a room for a future trip. The price is dirt cheap and the room is clean enough though extremely dated. If you search cheap-O sites like Priceline and Hotwire you can find discounted rates for this motel. The refrigerator in room number 7 looks like it was manufactured in the 1950s....

The room was disgusting, the bathtub was full of hair which were not ours and plugged. We didn't dare to walk without shoes on the carpet, lanky stain, stain on the bed sheets too, this is cheap, okay, but cheap doesn't mean they don't have to clean the rooms... Do not go there !

This person never stayed at our motel so how can she give review about any body or any property. Her review is baseless and she is making wrong judgement based on gossips etc. Thousands of people stay at our motel every year and out of thousands if we don't rent some of them because of their past behavior then of...

This is reminiscent of the roadside Americana available throughout the USA, though it is near the international bridge in Sarnia. It is not a spectacular motel, but it is a decent enough place sleep for a night if passing through town.

I went to this motel from july 31 to august 3 2015. It is an ok motel, the internet is fast, it has a fridge and air condition. A lot of channels on the tv but the bathtub was not clean. It is very close of everything.

Outdated yes staff excellent, not cleanest but for rate I get to just sleep my 7 hours more then fine better then many other places I seen.Suggest place if you just want to sleep and go! Nothing more good about it but cost efficient for a cheap mattress and roof over head.

Unfortunately for me, I booked through Expedia and after looking at room decided not to stay. Would not give me a refund. Wii never use third party again. Carpets are wrinkled and stained. Never bothered to check the sheets. Nothing more to say.
