The motel is nice and neat with a very affordable price. It has a very organized kitchenette with all required amenities. Dollard, the owner, is a gentleman. He is very modest and ready to help with any questions. The access is easy with parking in front of room. The beds are comfortable and clean.
Is worthwhile if you are visiting Bathurst, New Brunswick.

Room Tip: If you need a kitchenette, then ask for it.

We needed a place that was clean, quiet, comfortable. We got that and more! A large room with attached kitchen dining included. The host Dollard was very accommodating. The location worked well for our needs; Exceptional in its class of reliable convenient motel.

Room Tip: For ease of unloading your vehicle ask for #1-5; for closer access to in ground pool and wooded area...

John's Motel has become our go-to lodging when working in the area. I've had up to three staff stay here from a one night stay to 5 nights.
Dollard, the owner, is friendly and accommodating. Rooms are spotless and one can see the great care in cleanliness. Kitchenettes are full size kitchens.
Love the pillows. The motel is close to everything, with easy access to the highway.
Great value.

I went here with my boyfriend while doing a road trip, this was the cheapest we could find in that area. It was Average, the bed was decent but hard, we had an okay night sleep but will not be returning there. Upon our arrival we asked a couple questions and the person at the front desk made us feel bad.

Hello, I apologize to you both if I did or said anything to you that made you feel bad because that is the last thing I would want to do to anyone that took time and spent there money at my establishment. I want to invite all our guest and respond positively to all there questions. We are doing some changes to the issue of our beds being too hard but it does take time. I thank you for your review and will pay closer attention in how I respond to my guests questions. Sincerely Dollard

Dollard is a very nice friendly and helpful host. I recommend his motel to anyone travelling in the Bathurst area

This is a great place to stop if you just need a place to rest for the night. You'll get the rest you need and the satisfaction that you've spent your money well.

John, the owner, is a nice guy, and he's around if you need any help. The price is better than many other places in the area.

Easy access to Bathurst and the highway if you're just passing through.
