We were very happy with the cleanliness of our room and the staff were quite pleasant. The motel was well maintained and we would stay there any time that we return to Perth area. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spotless.

Room was clean and comfortable. Front desk staff very friendly. Didn't realize there was a train track across the street until a train went by before we headed for bed, however, did not hear any trains during the night. Bathroom very clean and the bedding was in good shape.

The price was right, room was very clean, owner was kind, helpful and smiling. Everything worked, tv, water, air conditioner, small room but all you need for a good... More

The staff were friendly and accommodating. The rooms (bathroom included) were very clean and the rate was affordable. We were very pleased with our stay. We spent five nights on the road and the Inn beat out our stay at another well known hotel chain for cleanliness by far. Keep up the great work!

The owner was very welcoming and very helpful. The room and bathroom was immaculate, so very clean. The hotel is located on a main road and across from a train line but the double glazing ensures the room is quiet.

Unassuming, clean and well appointed for a price from the last century... The staff is friendly and outgoing; the room is small but complete, and the bathroom is well thought out with the one exception of a slighty slippery tub floor. Parking is not room-numbered but there are enough places for all. TV channels are basic, but downtown Perth is... More

We enjoyed the hospitality of the owners of the Tay Inn. We travel with a heavy medical machine and boxes of medical supplies. The host carried everything in for us and was very helpful. He gave us suggestions for supper places in town. For a quick meal or snack the Tay is across the road fom Tim Hortons. There is... More

We were on our way to find A spot for the night and were hesitant between A chain or this one. We stopped hesitantly and to our surprise, bed was comfy, room very clean, owners went out of their way to make US feel at home! Would highly recommend!!

I stayed at the Inn for one night and I was very pleasantly surprised. Nice renovated rooms with new bathroom, windows. Room was clean and tidy and had cable tv. It's located close to restaurants. The owner was very polite and helpful. Would stay again in a heartbeat.
