We stayed one night in the Picket Fence. The owner was nice enough to hold the reservation for me even thought I had only email and could not put down a deposit. The place is extremely clean and our unit had a brand new bathroom including a makeup mirror. We had a comfy queen bed. We sat outside at a picnic table and had a glass of wine before dinner. You can easily walk to the town center in about 10 minutes.

Stayed for two nights - also my second visit here - so I'll stay with the theme and just second most of the comments below.

Ideally located just far enough from downtown to be peaceful and close enough to get anywhere in 10 minutes. Absolutely clean and set up with the traveller's comfort in mind.

Sue seems to personally greet every arrival, and is always nearby to handle any problems or recommend places to visit.

Easy parking right at your door, excellent TV and internet service, lots of nice touches in the rooms. And for all that, very reasonably priced for a popular resort. No food service, but near to everything, and in-room coffee is supplied.

Will visit St Andrews again some year, and no question this is where I'll stay.

Stayed for one night in the Picket Fence after a whale watching trip on the recommendation of TripAdvisor and were certainly not disappointed. Clean and comfortable with free wifi. No breakfast room but with Tim Hortons around the corner serving the best coffee this was not a problem!!
The owner was very obliging making a call to a local taxi firm to take us to a restaurant for dinner (a very miserable one I must say but the only one in town!).
Would definitely recommend this motel.

We overnighted here on a trip and wished we could have stayed longer. It is a clean, quiet place. The owners go out of their way to make you feel welcome and to help you get the most out of your visit. The rooms are small and quaint, but contain everything required for a comfortable stay, including good wireless service. Would stay here again.

Great motel in St. Andrews. Centrally located, very clean. Service was outstanding! We reserved two rooms and enjoyed staying here very much. We were there for Canada Day; St Andrews has a big celebration from sunrise to sunset. It started raining late in the evening and without even asking, a staff member came over to tell us the status of the fireworks and what we needed to know.

Last room in town, Truly a great find. The young couple were very accommodating, the place was perfect for us. Wish we had more time to stay and truly enjoy the town and our room as it had a little kitchenette perfect for a couple of day to a weak visit. We will probably return and take advantage of the great deal.

Room Tip: Great price, clean room.

Booked this through the NB tourit information and got the last room for that night. Had read that others liked the property and we agree that it was very clean, had all the amenities you need (TV, internet wifi). Bathroooms nice and clean (Bathfitters have been in and all bathrooms are looking newly renewed). It was like a throw back to my childhood when our family used to stop at motels during family holidays. Staff very friendly and helpful with instructions about the town. Would have golfed at St. Andrews but of course, there was a tournament..... Nice little town to walk around in ; lots of touristy shops but fun to go through them all.
