We are a married couple travelling from NL to AB and in the middle of our road trip, we decided to stop by Sault Ste Marie as we find the place really nice. We were travelling with a car filled with stuff as we are moving to another province for good.
Entrance was hard to find. It was really small.
Seems pretty odd but I was the only one parked in their parking area Although there were a lot of people I can see when I pass by the hallway and every room seems occupied (can hear their TV on). I was paranoid somebody might break the windows and take our things so I had to glance every hour outside and make sure nothing suspicious was happening.
The hallway stunk and was made up of worn out stained, uncleaned carpet. Must've been there for a century.
The bathroom stunk. Towels were not cleaned and had dust in them.
Furniture were dusty and so as the TV.
Cobwebs and spiders on the outside of the window. Well... that's what I thought..
SPIDERS ALSO LIVED INSIDE EVEN GOT ONE IN OUR BED.
I would not recommend this hotel. Unless you are desperately looking for a cheap place to stay or you like sleeping with spiders.
