We booked this motel (inn is much too kind a word) for our Bracebridge triathlon. The plan was to pull in early, relax and get ready for the race the next morning.
We showed up at 8:30 and was told we were checking in late and should have called ahead! I appologised paid for the room then went to unpack.
On opening the door a wave of must mixed with cigarettes filled our heads. We were so disappointed. 100 bucks a night is not that cheap. My girlfriend went back to the car to let the room air out and I began snapping pictures. There were two car air fresheners in the room: new leather and black ice. There was a large LCD TV but that and the cable box were plugged into the wall via a long extension cord.
The bathroom of horrors continued the adventure with a child's mirror that had a baseball, football and other sport motifs on it. The sink and standup shower were very moldy. I took pictures of everything. The bathroom walls were covered with dirty finger prints.
All in all we were both disgusted and made the decision that we derserve better. I was able to get back some of the money and accepted the loss.
The front desk claims that all the rooms are 'sanitized' and that the rooms are inspected for cleanliness. She advised that leaving the air conditioner on would help. We just wanted to get the heck away from room 108.
In the future I will carefully read reviews on Trip Advisor.
PS we stayed at the Muskoka River Inn. Much much better
