“Call of the Wild”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

Have stayed twice. Upgraded room worth the price, recent reno. Owners on site. Have recommended it to other bikers on the road. No negatives to report. Can walk to restaurants. Clean. The name helps remember it for next time. I have traveled this route for a long time.

Room Tip: Ask for reno'd room for few extra dollars.

Best independent motel I have been to in years and this place is clearly not a large chain motel, but it is quite and clean with affordable rates and the staff are friendly, polite and helpful. I enjoyed my stay here and would recommend this place to anyone and to everyone traveling in this area looking for an overnight stopover!

Great place for an overnight stop. Spotless, friendly staff and reasonable price. People smoking outside our room and slamming their car doors was the only real annoyance. There is a BBQ for guest use and a nice area with lawn chairs and tables.

We stayed only one night as we traversed the Trans Canada Highway from Ottawa to Winnipeg.

When we saw the white fang sign we thought this was the wrong thing to name a motel given all the vampire movies and novels. But you must think "wolf". The owners have an obvious passion for wolves and all the artwork in all the rooms is wolf related.

Our room appeared to be brand new. It was sparkling clean. The bed was king size and very comfortable. The flat screen TV was crispy clear and had a good selection of channels. Our night was peacefully quiet given that the motel backs unto vacant forest land and is adequately distanced from the road traffic which is quite sparse at night.

Dinner was just across the highway from the motel and Wawa is just a few minutes away to a strange but interesting Young's General Store and Tim Horton's.

I recommend White Fang Motel to any traveler.

We stopped here on our last night of a trip from Southern Ontario to Alberta and back and it was, by far, the best motel we stayed at. The recently renovated room was spotlessly clean, comfortable and spacious. There was a fridge that we could put our food from our cooler into and a coffee maker for morning coffee to get us started on the last leg of our journey.
Right across the highway is a wonderful little restaurant where we were able to have dinner before a wonderful nights sleep in the very comfortable bed.
What a surprise to find such a gem 5 km south of Wawa!

A wonderful night's stay on the long road across Ontario. The motel has been recently renovated, so is very clean with no room odors. It is very quiet even though it is right on hwy 17 west of Wawa. The cost is comparable with similar motels in the area. The owners are friendly, offering to help with any needs we might have had. The view out our bathroom window in room #1: a greenhouse and huge personal vegetable garden. A peaceful night before hitting the road again.
