“Clean, and good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

Good motel for a one night break when your car trippin' along the trans-canada. Sure, this motel is a bit dated, and the rooms are a bit dark and dingy, but they are really clean, and I believe are great value for money. I couldn`t hear any road noise from inside my room (I was in one of the rooms along the back though) and that is always a bonus for a roadside motel. If your on a bit of a budget, like I was, don't hesitate to book in here.

My husband, daughter and myself were travelling back from Nova Scotia and intended to stay the night in SSM, however, that did not happen. We had previously stayed in a hotel just a few doors over and it was not pleasant, so we wanted to see the room first and then decide if we were going to stay. Immediately the owner seemed to have an attitude when I asked to see the room, it is our right to check it out. So we got the key, walked in the room and saw it was clean and orderly and decided to stay. We do not have credit cards and so the owner wanted a cash damage deposit, the hotel down the street did not ask for that, anyway, we gave some cash and the owner went on to ask if we had reservations and we did, I had called a week prior and put on name in, but he seemed confused and gave more attitude and seemed offended that we wanted to check the room, cause he knows how he keeps his hotel, but how do I know how he keeps it? Anyway, after this attitude we decided not to stay, my husband went to tell him and the owner comes storming into the room to inspect it, all we had done was walk in, look at the bathroom and walk out, so the owner decided he needed to nitpick at anything and said we had messed up the carpet and jumped on the bed, he actually ripped off the comforter and said he now would have to clean the whole room, we had been in it for less than two minutes!!!!! He reluctantly refunded us the deposit and the room price, but kept $8 for his cleaning or ego or something. DO NOT STAY HERE!!

I stayed here after 13.5 hours driving... Friendly owner. Clean room. No luxuries but perfect for a short stay after a long day on the road. under 70 dollars after taxes. No reservation needed. I just arrived, got a room and next morning was on the road again.

Stayed here for a couple of days during a weekend visit to Sault Ste. Marie. Chose this hotel because of the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor and it didn't disappoint. Rooms were comfortable and clean and the staff were very friendly. Only minor issue was the lamp on the table by the television had a switch that didn't always work. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We were pleasantly surprised at the upkeep and cleanliness of this small motel. It's great value for the money and the owners are friendly and very helpful. We have now stayed here twice in the last two weeks while going and coming from Toronto. This will be our accommodations of choice any time we are in Sault Ste Marie. The beds are comfy, the room was basic but a good size and very clean, the bathroom was sparkling!

This place is an older 20 room motel that doesn’t look like much from the road, but the rooms are clean if somewhat small, and smelled OK to us. The plumbing fixtures all worked and looked new but were at the low end of the price spectrum. The bathroom was very clean and appeared to be recently remodeled with ceramic tile on the floor and walls. If you want a good hot shower, go somewhere else. The hot water was lukewarm at best. There was no Kleenex type tissues in the room.

The Wi-Fi in the room was adequate to support Skype quite well, but we didn’t try streaming video.

English was definitely not the desk clerk’s first language. I had some trouble explaining that a medical alert dog is not a pet, but she finally got it. I never did communicate the idea that two people staying in the same room might each want a key to the room. She took the position that if we wanted a second key we should rent a second room.
