Picket Fence Motel
Ranked #2 of 7 Hotels in Saint Andrews
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 August 2014

This is a perfect place to stay for a stop-over or an extended visit to St. Andrews. The owner is extremely accommodating and provides helpful suggestions to make the most of your visit to St. Andrews.
We had a spotless, quiet, air conditioned room with a queen bed, and the bathroom sparkled with new bright white fixtures and a tile floor. The layout is reminiscent of a 60's "Motor court"-type motel with central green space, but everything is updated and well maintained.
There is a Tim Horton's a block away and the center of town is a pleasant 15 minute walk. We'd definitely stay at the Picket Fence in the future.
This is a phenomenal value considering the location and quality of the facility.

I loved the welcoming environment and clean room. Although there was only a shower (no bath!) I really did not mind at all. Owners were exceptional the entire week we stayed. They even gave us s'more tools and made a fire for us. We look forward to booking our next trip to this town and motel.

The Picket Fence is far from the best lodging in St. Andrews but we would come back. Folks sit around under the apple trees and watch traffic meander into town. The rooms are well maintained and clean, but if you are the B and B type, you might want to spend more. A picture is worth a thousand words.

I really can't say enough about the friendliness of the owners of the Picket Fence. They extremely friendly and helpful in telling us the attractions in St. Andrews that were just right for a group. We felt as if we had friends in town, guiding us through our visit. While the room was a bit dated, I found it to be a value at the price. The location, a short walk from the Tim Horton's was an added plus.

We made a brief stop in St. Andrews on a road trip. We arrived late and with little option for food, but she went over maps with us to continue on our journey and was supremely friendly and patient. The rooms were spotless. I truly walk around and inspect, and could no flaws! For the age of the decor there were no "odors" or signs of wear like one would expect. The toiletries were nice as well as the fridge/microwave, and a mounted tv! Thank you, much easier to watch from bed!! The wi-fi worked well also. We would definitely return for a future visit.

We just spent a couple of nights at the picket fence. The friendliness of the staff is incredible and their recommendations for my kids and I for local attractions was dead on. They went out of there way to please us and the rooms are incredibly clean and tidy. Highly recommend. My kids want to come back even though there isn't a pool. They felt at home:)

A very quaint little place that's a bit of a throwback to the old strip motels of the 50's and 60's. Unfortunately the bedspreads are probably that old too.

Very convenient location - walkable to downtown, and the place is surrounded by deer.
