I've stayed here twice now with no complaints. This motel should have a higher rating. Owners are very nice. Towels and linens are clean and comfortable wifi and TV provided. Fridge air conditioner microwave. Everything you need for a few days
Was heading to London around 11pm but there was a snow storm so I pulled in to The Gables because I tired, it was the closest place and was somehow rated #3 on the Trip Advisor “value chart”(guess I won’t go by that any more!). On the Trip Advisor App it said $68 CDN, so fine $68 for the #3 value on TA not too shabby I guess. The woman comes out and says they have a room for $100 cash. I’m like it says $68 on the app. She says no that’s US funds(it wasn’t) How many 1* hotels charge $100?? After some haggling she went to $90, I was tired so accepted but I’m pissed. I could have went to the Days Inn for pete sakes, but it was late and they had me by the you know whats. Maybe that’s how they do business where they are from. So I get into the double queen room and it’s cold, the chairs are stained, I’m looking at cigarette burns in the bedding as I write this. I know, I know it’s a 1* motel your saying what do you expect? Fine I could live with the 1* room I basically just needed a place to crash and I was flying solo its not about that it’s about being disrespected and charged more then the Trip Advisor app said it was for a 1* dive because I was stuck and it was late at night. There was like 2 cars there. $100 cash she says, my ass. Who the hell writes these nice reviews?? So anyways I’d stay away from London Line motels all together and go to the downtown area by the water maybe the Harbour Front or something and get a decent room for the same price.…
We came in on a rainy night, needed a quick place for a short stay. The gal whom runs the motel is very friendly and sweet. The bathroom was totally renovated, new everything, even tub looked new. Very nicely done! The room looks like it has been painted but still needs some updating. The only reason I gave this score, crumbs on the carpet from previous customer. The carpet looked like it hadn't been vacuumed. No hair dryer, no shampoo, yes a no frills motel. We travel with those needed things anyway. Yes there were webs on exterior windows, the exterior and door need attention. Lots of places to eat nearby. This a good place to stay.
The first room we were given we refused to stay in. There were spiderwebs in the bathroom sink, tub, in the sleeping area, all with spiders in them. The room smelled horrible! The woman at the desk was very nice and gave us another room. It was a little better but still smelled and could definitely have been cleaner. If we had been spending more than one night we would have left. One positive the bathrooms had obviously been recently remodeled and were quite nice.
The place had reasonable reviews and a good rating and looked okay from the road. We were given a 'senior' rate and unloaded our gear quickly because of the heat. The A/C had not been on previously so after setting it to maximum cooling we went out for a couple of hours only to return to a warm room! Very annoyed, particularly when the manager insisted it was cold. We were offered another romm which was actually much cleaner but still hot. So we left. I now wonder how this place got its rating.
