Picket Fence has everything you could need for a stay. The room was so clean and the bathroom was spotless......and I am a fusspot when it comes to these things! 😉 The owners could not have been any more friendly or accommodating and so very helpful! Amazing people! Yes, its an older property but everything you could possibly need in a stay away is provided and provided with a smile! My only little suggestion would be updating the wifi coverage! It is perfectly fine for web browsing or checking emails though! Which is all you should be doing when staying in St Andrews anyway! Looking forward to seeing you next year!
We spent two nights at the Picket Fence Motel recently, one night on our way to the United States, and one night on our way home. We were very happy with both stays in different rooms. They were both clean and contained everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The beds were comfortable and we slept well. The owners even let us borrow camp chairs to take to a concert on Minister's Island which we very much appreciated! The location of Picket Fence Motel is very convenient for exploring the lovely town of Saint Andrews. We had a pleasant walk to the downtown for restaurants and shopping, it would be a very short drive if you don't want to walk. There are lots of good eating options in the town. We would not hesitate to stay here again if in the area.
Very nice, tidy, quaint place. The bathroom was so clean it was sparkling. Got excellent recommendations from the owners on where to eat and shop. In the evening, they put on a fire in the central courtyard where we sat and chatted with some other travelers. Golfed the beautiful Algonquin course, which borders the same street. 5 minute walk to the local coffee shop too. Would recommend to friends/fam.
This old style motel has its limitations. It was a small room with too much furniture in it. I liked having the windows open for fresh air until the loud neighbors returned after I was asleep. Then they kept me awake due to the thin walls. The wifi was poor. Not sure how they do this but the hot water is all that comes out of both taps most of the time, The shower was slightly larger than me, so forget trying to shave legs or wash feet! Even though this was a walkable location and the room was clean, I would not rent here again.
Found this lovely motel in St Andrews, NB. The Picket Fence Motel is super clean and the owners are friendly and helpful. Close to downtown, you can walk anywhere to take in the sights. The motel has been there for a long time and only two families have owned it in the last 100 years which they will celebrate in 2023. Many renovations have been done since then, of course. It's affordable, clean,and all you need for a good place to sleep.
We suddenly needed a room and the owner was lovely and accommodating. Helpful with advice and friendly. Stayed in two different rooms on a busy weekend. Both were clean with all the basics. Not luxury but not looking for it. Reasonably priced and well run. We definitely recommend this place.
This is a great motel within easy walking distance of downtown and the waterfront. We 3 adults stayed in a twin double and there was more than enough space for us and our gear. I really appreciated how the room was laid out for multiple people to be comfortable. It seems that someone has really put some thought into outlets, lighting and storage- right down to shelving and extra towel hangers in the bathroom. Bedding and linens were clean, comfy and of good quality. There was a small fridge and coffee maker in the room as well. TV was large enough for easy viewing from both beds. The channel selection was good too. Wi -fi worked just fine. Everything was quite clean and well maintained. The extra steps taken for covid safety were also appreciated and made us feel quite comfortable. The grassy outdoor area is pretty and perfect for sitting in the shade of the fruit trees watching the birds. It was quiet enough there to relax but not so much that it feels uncomfortable having a chat or roaming around a bit. A quick & pretty (10 minutes or so) walk took us into downtown for dinner. The shining star of our stay though was our hostess. We traveled with a trailer and really deserved frowns and stink eye while maneuvering it around for parking. Instead, we were met with smiles, assistance and commiseration. Our AC & room fridge had been turned on prior to our arrival and both were nice and cool. She even provided us with a biker's towel pack for drying off the motorcycle after a morning rain. I cannot recall ever feeling this welcome when staying somewhere. I highly recommend The Picket Fence and I will definitely be staying there if I am ever in St Andrew's again.…
The roomwas clean. The owner or person in the office, was most condescending because i dared to show up at 2pm to pay for the room i had booked. She made a remark about this being a time of day to get things done and that she had to get off a ladder. Don't advertise office hours from 8am to 10pm if you're going to be so rude to potential guests. Or hire someone to Stay at the desk . So ,The Picket Fence Motel is not on the list for me again.
Please do not consider staying here if you live outside of the atlantic bubble. The owner made us feel very uncomfortable being there and made it clear that she did not want us near her when she saw our Ontario licence plate. She was upset that we had already reserved a room and all but said we should have stayed in our own province. Aside from the unbelievable rudeness and unacceptable service the room was of an acceptable quality. If we had been able to find somewhere last minute we would have found any alternate accomodations.
We had stayed here a few years ago. In the meantime, the place has been spruced up. The location was always a reason to stay and it is good value for the price. They now seem to have renewed the linens and the toiletries are very nice.
