Owners are the rudest I've ever met. Why run a motel. City should shut it down. Car broke down and needed a cheap place to stay. Talked to owner on phone and wanted to reserve room, was told you can't over the phone. Said I would be there in 10 mins to book. When I arrived 10 minutes later, door...

Lady at the front desk is very nice, but she is fighting a losing battle. This place looks like it hasn't been touched since 1965. The other people that are staying at this place are positively scary. When I went into my room a bunch of people were staring at me sitting in the chairs in the front of their...

Stayed here on Friday was clean quiet and the bed was comfy. The only thing that I did care for was the water pressure for the shower and the door into my room the key lock is a bit tight. Other than that no complaints and a lot better than the White Towers/Barrie Motel on Donald st avoid that place.
