3rd Thursday of the month they have a brunch with the mermaids in the upstairs Tiki Bar. The mermaids were fun to watch and we got a really good seat at the bar with endless Mimosas. The food was alright, but not like mama made, the Mermaids are clearly the draw. They swam and blew bubble kisses and played with...

I stayed at the O'Haire, home of the famous Sip 'n Dip Lounge, the night before I left on an early-morning flight, and again when I returned. I hadn't stayed there in a number of years and wondered how the landmark hotel was doing. It has kept up with the times. My room was very nice and very comfortable, with...

The rooms are average and the location nondescript, but this little family-run motor inn hides a great secret - mermaids! The Sip and Dip lounge features floating lovlies in the glass-sided pool, so you can go and take pictures beside them. The food is good here, and the drinks lethal. Their drink specialty is a delicious gigantic blue fishbowl filled...

staying here tonight, its cheap and simple. our room is pretty plain and a little dated. the place is quiet and there is parking in a parkade so not on the street. The little bar is pretty cool with mermaids in a pool and an old lady 106 years old playing the piano.

We had room 113 which had been updated. But they were still using the old fashioned keys to open and lock the doors and we were extremely disappointed to find a letter in our room advising us that the master key had recently been lost! Why didn't they tell us when we checked in? Had to go up a steep...

Thank you for staying with us! We are happy to report that the new electronic key system is in place as of yesterday. We certainly appreciated everyone patience while we made that transition. I will share your comments with our staff during meetings and see how we can address the issues. We do apologize for the plug in situation. As...

Loved the inside, first floor parking. Room itself was on the small side but it is nicely laid out. No fridge or microwave. The funky "modern" control panels for the room lights and outlets worked well, tho the buttons are not marked so there is some trial and error to figure out what buttons do what. The HVAC is centralized...

The hotel rooms were clean and updated. The bed comfortable. Greeted by a letter in my room regarding theft of a master key and they were in the process of rekeying all the rooms.
