Excellent stay, rental unit was a full amenities suite..actually like renting someone's apartment. We had left behind an expensive piece of electronic equipment and Sunny searched and found it. She, and husband, packed it carefully, took to FedEx, and ship it to us. They never asked for money up front...only that once we received it, e-transfer freight charges. We wanted...

Let me start by saying the management is very nice and accommodating. But this place needs some serious TLC. The Hallways and staircases need vacuuming. The shower had mold on the ceiling and shower curtain was old and stained. Only A/C is wall unit in second room which is very loud and does nothing for the main room when door...

I used to like staying here but not so much anymore since the new management took over. I did not find it as friendly and not as clean as it was before. The hallways and stairs need vacuuming and toiletries are not replenished when they clean your room. I had to ask for toilet paper!! A guest should not have...

There was a mouse nest in the pull out couch. Management tried their best to make us feel better. We had to say in the Mousey Couchey room the first night but were "upgraded" to "executive suite" next night with no mousey couchey!

Stayed in a lower floor, basement apartment for a 1 night stopover. It was pretty dark but clean with all amenities. If you want fluffy towels etc then probably not for you. Decor couldn't hide the fact that it was once the basement with concrete screed on the ceilings and all walls in orange textured paint.

We were greeted by wonderful owners who would do most anything to make our stay pleasant. This is a 3 story high apartment building (no elevator). We stayed in a 2 room suite in the 3rd floor.

The unit was spacious with a completed self - contained kitchen, a dining table and a sitting area. The bedroom was seperate. If you prefer to to quickly whip up your own food, you have all the necessary pots and pans, cutlery. You are expected to clean up the plates etc. but you have the dish washing liquid there.

Large rooms, good location and the motel usually has an escort service available in house, which is good for Bruce Power contractors that use the place. Pizza shop and liquor store across the road.Morals and ethics it does not have, but good size rooms.

“I was in the basement near the backyard and found it convenient and away from other guests who didn't have children running in and out. Glad to keep them away from disturbing others and still have the access for them to go in and out like home and not disturb anyone.”
