The Emerald Isle motel reminds me of some of the motels I would stay in during family trips around the US twenty years ago. Its' best feature is the location, being at Yonge & 7 right next to the 407 gives you easy access to most major highways. The only other benefit is the price. Normally you can find much... More

Located at Yonge at 407/7, surrounded by big box retail and new condos, sits this odd motel. It was obviously there when this was all countryside. The motel is not classy or even cheap. For a room with a broken dresser, you pay $90. If you are on a budget, you would be better off going on Priceline.com and just... More

Cobwebs, mothball smell, dirty drawers and refrigerator. Yuck! We were afraid to step on the carpet. We put extra padding under the sheet to have the bed be okay for sleeping. The shower worked well is about the best I can say. We had booked 3 nights and left after 1.

Stayed as other hotels were booked. The place is quite dirty and the beds are very uncomfortable. Carpets are totally worn out and bathrooms are in disrepair. Good luck finding front desk staff even when checking out. We have seen old places that are much better maintained. Keep driving by.

This place is a dump. Under my bed was a huge amount of garbage, the rooms are in disrepair. The rooms were cheap, but it is easy to find good value in the area. No problem parking my truck, food and stores were nearby. there is probably a long walk to your room as well. Overall I would recommend to... More

In the bathroom the walls have cracks, the ceiling has the old water spots, toilet bowel is shaking, and not working properly, the heater is very old, and have some smell. In this very cold weather all doors in the walkways/stairs/corridors are locked, and you have to walk almost around whole building to get to your room. And all these... More
