Purpose of our trip - we were in town for a weekend and there was a large hockey tournament and a large soccer tournament the same weekend so most hotels/motels were sold out.
Location - great location, across from a grocery store (with a Starbucks) and walking distance to downtown and Polson Park.
Surrounding Area - there was enough in the area to satisfy your food cravings but if you are looking for major retail shopping or fast food outlets, you will not find it here. Felt safe enough walking around but we have a small child with an early bedtime so we were not out at night.
Amenities - the motel has a heated pool which was actually really nice. It might not have a 'fancy hotel pool' look but it was sure refreshing. Our room also had a small fridge which we used a lot. On the downside, I could not get the wifi to work in my rook so I had to sit outside if I wanted to do anything internet related which was not convenient at all.
Staff - staff was non-committal to helping us. They were not rude or bad, just almost not into it if that is a way to describe it.
Room - average in size with a bed, 2 tables/chairs, tv and a fridge and the furniture was actually quite nice. We even had room to set up a pack n play for our child. The bathroom and shower were average as was the comfort of the bed. Noise level was good as we didn't hear much noise.
Overall - be fully prepared as this is by no means a fancy motel. Yes it needs some upgrades, yes it might not be fully cleaned every day and yes you could smell smokers on occasion but if you are ok with that then this could be the place for you. If we return we would likely shop around and see what else is out there.
