The hotel is nothing fancy but the rooms were very clean, affordable and the staff was courteous and very attentive. The location in town was convenient for shopping and dining. The pool is small but clean and warm.

We have been staying here for many years! Rooms are clean, it's centrally located and within walking distance to almost everything, continental breakfast is nice in the morning, staff is friendly, and the price is always right.

We spent one night here on our way through to Montreal and the staff was extremely welcoming and friendly. We told them why we were travelling (for our honeymoon) and they were so sweet and excited that we were there. In fact, after we woke up from a short nap we found a "best wishes" card signed by the staff... More

We stayed at the Downtowner for the Head of the Fish Regatta (read: we were desperate for a place to stay since I had two high school kids who were racing and location was important.)

Very helpful person at the front desk, who pointed us in the direction of local attractions on a cold rainy visit. The room was clean and comfortable, and its older decor was charming in a way that more modern cannot be. One of the better light breakfasts I've had, without a space with tables nearby, but good yogurt, fruit, granola,... More

Quick overnight stay in superb location. It's an older property with squeaky stairs, older fixtures, etc, and I found that to add to the charm. Motel was clean, had the basics, and staff was incredibly friendly!

Our room was VERY clean and the bed comfortable. It's an older style hotel- but the property is very well cared for. Sure it could use some updating but then it would be more expensive! The breakfast in the lobby is basic- muffins, toast, fruit, juice, granola, yogurt and coffee. There are plenty of breakfast places close by if you... More
