“Astonished!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

So I decided on a whim to go to Shediac NB, without reserving room first, thinking I would find one when I get there. Bad idea? Yes! Thank god I found this motel! Seeing as this was really last minute, I was expecting moth eaten linen, water stains and horrible smells. I was not expecting this adorable little (pretty big actually) room. Clean, with every accomodation you would expect from a HOTEL. Wi-Fi, air conditioning, clean towels, clean linen, well... clean everything really. Close to the town, Tim Hortons and McD's at a walkable distance. Price was fair considering I'm in season! And the owners were super nice and friendly and seem to really want you to have a nice stay. I have read some of the bad reviews and don't understand them at all. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the beautiful town of Shediac!

Just returned home from an awesome vacation in Shediac at the Gaudet Motel. Rooms are very clean and large and the beds are super comfy, the owners always go above and beyond to make your stay there great. The motel is close to everything, and is situated right off Main Street but is quiet and relaxing. Dining and sightseeing can be done within walking distance and there is even a shuttle service to Parlee Beach! Had an amazing time and definitely be returning very soon :)

We stayed in cabin 4 July 10-18. Cabins are very nice and spacious and have everything you need. The only thing is you must check out by 9 am and the office does not open till 10. Before check out I washed all the towel and went one step further and stripped both beds and had them in the wash . We got a call from Gaudet 2 hours later saying there were 2 pillows missing. We told them there was 1 extra pillow in each closet with a blanket and two on each bed with 2 pillow shams. They said no there was 2 extra in each room. So my mother in law who is 77 yrs old went over to try and solve the issue who stayed in the 2nd bedroom was told she could not see the room and what is done was done. Why would we take 2 pillows when we were flying to Alta. that day. We are 61 and 56 years old and are we going to throw our clothes out to steal pillows in our suitcases. They should go in with their customers and go over everything and ensure nothing is missing so this does not happen to someone else. This has given us a bad experience and will not stay there again. They are going to charge our MC for the pillows and I am anxious to see the charge!!

My sister and I spent a couple of weeks in August and really enjoyed our stay. The chalet was clean and ALLERGY proof (ceramic floors). There's also nothing like being able to toss your stuff in the washer/dryer after a full day at the beach. The neighbourhood was quiet and felt safe. Timmy's and McDonald's are right across the street. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. We both loved it! It's where we'll be staying on future trips.

Let's start with the positive things:
- very clean
- pet friendly
- checkin staff very friendly, helpful, courteous
- quiet at night (no noise that we noticed)

Negative things:
- decor dated, and personally I thought the cost of the room ($145 incl taxes for 2 double-beds, fridge & micro, pet-friendly) didn't reflect in the decor and/or amenties
- world's hardest beds (seriously ... my back is still aching);
- world's smallest shower ... not sure a really large person could use the shower; my husband is 6'2" and had a difficult time.

Location - OK, not really close to the beach if that is your thing, but not bad.

GaudetChalets, Manager at Gaudet Chalet & Motel Shediac, responded to this review, 14 August 2012
Thank you for your recent review of our rooms.

We appreciate your feedback and strive to make your next stay a better one. Our rooms are fairly new as we are only 81/2 years old and only open in the summer. That is why our decor is slightly dated as it's difficult to replace items that still look new for lack of use. Being open 4 months a year has made our decor last a bit longer than most places open year round. We realize that but our photos on our website do show the exact rooms as they are now. We do have plans to change the decor soon. Please keep an eye on us.

As for the beds, this is the first time anyone has said they were too firm. We will look into this. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

We have already starting making changes to our bathrooms to change them over from showers to full tubs. We have completed 6 of our rooms already. I am sorry you did not get one of those rooms during your stay but the renovations are under way. Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you.

We hope that you will give us another chance in the near future. We will work to improve.

-Samantha
Manager

This place was just wonderful. The accommodations, the service, the friendly people and almost all the amenities of home right there at a pretty good price. The only thing stopping me from giving this place five our of five was the fact that it's a little far from the beach, but honestly? That's just being nitpicky. If you're in the area, stay there. Trust me.

Room Tip: You really want to stay at one of their Chalets. Even though I was alone and paying for a bed I did...
