The Coastal Motor Lodge is located a couple of km from the "downtown" of Thames. Nice views of the Firth of Thames are to be had from the Lodge.
Our room was an A-frame unit with interesting architecture. It was large. It was clean. The kitchen was a separate nook with cooktop, microwave, refrigerator and adequate cookware to prepare a small meal. There was only a small counter to serve as a table. We had an upper unit with a nice outside deck with a table and a couple of chairs. All the kitchen appliances worked ok and the kitchen was very clean.
The bedroom area was behind a small dividing wall from the living room area. The bed was very comfortable. All the linens were clean. The tall windows, without shades on the upper parts did let in a lot of light that meant sleeping-in was difficult. Also unfortunate, we could hear noise from the road. The bedroom area could use some more horizontal space for suitcases.
The bathroom had a tub with shower. It, too, was very clean.
This could be a place where I could stay for a while.
I could stay a while here. If it were not for the traffic noise I would rate it excellent.
