“Great location, however...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2013

We stayed here again last summer and it wasn't as good as we had remembered...I guess our tastes are changing...The room was stinky so we had to use an air freshener throughout our stay. The bed was uncomfortable so we didn't leave well rested. The shower drain was a little blocked and very slow to drain. But the thing that bothered us the most were the centipedes we saw climbing the walls each night- yuck!!
Yes the location is great and the rate is affordable but this year, for just a few dollars more, we've decided to try out one of Burlington's Bed and Breakfast establishments instead!!

Located on Lake Ontario well situated to downtown Burlington with shops and restaurants. Clean certainly not luxurious but for the budget minded you can't beat this place. Would be a great place to hang your hat during the many festivals in Burlington.

We stayed here for a weekend in June and enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and great value for the price ($60/night) Excellent location, right downtown- great for parking the car and walking everywhere. The room was very basic-no phones or fridge- but it was the perfect place to crash at night on a budget. The owner was friendly and we will certainly stay here again!

A very well run 'Mom & Pop' motel that is clean, welcoming and quiet. Central to downtown Burlington and with easy access to QEW. Perfect if your on a budget and want too do day trips into Toronto and Niagara Falls. Nearby night clubs, restaurants and parks make the Ascot perfect for everyone.

In spite of the other favourable reviews on this site, either my wife and I were at a different Ascot motel in a different Burlington, Ontario (etc.,etc..) or we caught Tony and co. at a bad time. He was somewhat dismissive when we arrived; bordering on ill mannered and that was the most favorable part of our stay. The room we were given had no less than three panes of glass with cracks, the electrical socket adjacent to the television was dangerously overloaded and the plumbing was a disaster.
The bath tub fixture dripped continually, the basin in the bathroom leaked onto the floor when the water was run and the toilet appeared to be in danger of liberating itself from the wall to which it was affixed.
All this for 80 bucks a night!? Not what I call value for money, I should have booked a campsite. Cheaper, safer and most likely the racoons, skunks, chipmunks and other hosts would have been more hospitable.

We have stayed here twice and are booked to stay again soon. The owners are charming, the place is clean and comfortable and a total throwback to the days of unpretentious, family owned and operated roadside motels. The lovely lake views are equally unpretentious and staying there reminds me of being at the cottage, only it's warmer, cleaner and quieter. Great location, easy to walk to great places to eat, grab coffee or just sit quietly along the lake. Decent prices and always a pleasant experience. The owners seem to be fussy about the clientele and so it is not a "party palace", despite it's proximity to pubs. So glad we found it. I just hope it never changes.

I've stayed at this place a few times in the last few years and it has never let me down. The small motel is right downtown in the heart of the city and close to shops, bars and pubs. One of the cleanest places I have ever stayed at and I've had my fair share of travels. Totally recommend this place if you're looking for a quality decent priced place without the bells and whistles.
