We had stayed here last year and enjoyed our stay. This time was completely different. The lady at the desk was hardly friendly(not the same lady from last year who was extremely friendly). The room was clean, but the fridge had no door on it and the sink in the kitchenette had no water. It was the noisiest room I...

We had to make a quick trip to do some house hunting in the middle of peak season so happy to find this available. Rooms are a bit dated but whole place is kept very clean & that is the most important thing for me. Breakfast was basic but adequate & always a nice addition.

We stayed here before and we were quite pleased but this trip we were given room 108 which I believe is the last one they rent out, although we had booked ahead. There was no bathtub which normally wouldn't bother me, but there was a shower stall that had literally nowhere to put down soap or shampoo, etc unless you...

The young lady at the front desk was very polite and friendly. We requested a room change and they were very accommodating. The rooms were clean and bright. It is next door to a great restaurant and within walking distance to the beach and other anemities.

Front Desk staff were polite, not overly friendly, but did provide us with a map of the area. The room was clean , but in need of an update. Breakfast is very limited. It is conveniently located on the main Hwy , close to shopping and the city park.

Spent 2 nights here recently. Last minute plans, so not a lot of choice left. This was about 4 blocks from the great community park/beach - an easy walk. The park is great with a fantastic playground. The motel was OK - nothing special. The breakfast was Ok, but no gluten free options and nothing special. Amy at the desk...

The price is quite reasonable, the staff are super friendly and the view of being on the water is amazing. Loved having coffee and tea with my husband on the deck, super quiet and peaceful. Beach is rocky not sandy and has a seaweed smell when the tide is out.

The breakfast included in a stay here is enjoyable. Not the greatest selection but enough to get you going on your way: cereals, toast, muffins, fruit, coffee, tea, juice and milk. Nice little breakfast area, with TV set to CBC news and papers to read. Judging by the other visitors, seniors like to frequent this place (not a bad thing...

This is a good reasonably priced motel. Conveniently located and easy to find. It's clean and has a basic continental breakfast included in the price. The mattresses could use updating as they are getting a little saggy. The bath towels are getting thin.
