I stayed at this motel in July 2014 for 2 nights. It is clean and everything worked in the rooms I stayed in. I took the train to Moosonee and left my car at the motel. No safety issues. Barb the new owner is quite helpful and sure makes you feel welcome.

Considering you are paying a budget price don't expect the Royal York. The motel is not pretending to be a "Best Western", but for the cost difference a couple can go out for a very nice dinner including a drink. You should also remember that you are approaching the far north of Ontario and things generally are a lot simpler....

This motel is VERY VERY CLEAN. I work as a home cleaner and there wasn't a single thing missed. It was beautiful. So clean! And nice sheets :) I recently stayed at the Commando Motel. I came in exhausted and wretched from the long drive and stress etc. I had only planned to stay one night and Barbara (the owner...

My handicapped sister and myself stayed with Barbara Crouch and the Commando Motel for 4 nights during our visit to the area. We travelled on the Polar Bear Express and stayed in Moosonee for the only other night.

We booked a room by visiting the motel in person as we needed a room on arrival at Cochrane on our way back from Moosoone from train. The motel owner confirmed the reservation and took the credit card details. On the day of arrival at the Motel, the manager had simply disappeared. She was not available at her office and...

I was travelling to Toronto and since I had I stayed at this property two years ago upon the suggestion of a friend (not to be confused with a recommendation) I figured I would visit it again.
