There are not a lot of accommodations in Bancroft so after I read the reviews I figured the Sword Inn might not be TOO bad. Here are the plusses and minusses of this motel: Positive: Room was clean, recently "renovated" AC was new and worked well. That's it folks. Negatives: Rooms are EXTEMELY small, even by 1960s standards when this...

Stayed here for one night on our way back from Algonquin park and were very pleased with our accomodations. The staff was very friendly and the room was cozy, clean and well equipped (microwave, mini-fridge iron and board). There was also an indoor pool and hot tub, but we did not use them. The breakfast was great and included waffles,...

As a local, the Sword has never really been a huge spectacle. As one of the two motels in Bancroft, and the only one that's directly in town, there isn't much choice if you don't want the extra drive. All that aside, I was most definitely not pleased. Having worked in housekeeping in the past, the place is /FILTHY/, and...

The front staff were friendly when we arrived. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was at convenient times.
