We had a very warm and comfortable night at the Aldan Lodge Motel. Lights and heater were on when we arrived on the wet and cold night. Great room with all the necessary amenities. Spotless too. Thank you.

We stayed here for one night after getting off the ferry. It was as you'd expect for the price, dated but clean. The beds were REALLY comfortable. There was a plunger and plunger coffee provided but no milk. The shower pressure was pretty poor (don't try to wash your hair here ladies! 🤔). Friendly service, easy check)-in and check-out.

Stuck in a time warp this motel was Old, Tired and Jaded in need of refurbishment. No Mixer Taps ( Bathroom and Kitchen ) Looked and felt dirty everywhere. Kitchen window latch was broken ( why not just replace it? ) Would not book and stay here - would not even pay for the mother-in-law to stay here!!
