Wow! A short drive to the bright lights, big city...made for a brilliant stay. I was pleasantly surprised with the quietness of a main road motel. I enjoyed the time I had at this hotel...complimentary coffee...fresh crisp sheets...a pool! Cars paces...felt more like a mini resort to myself. Thank you for the hospitality...my online solitaire was able to be enjoyed...

Older style motel in a row of motels in South Tweed. Room was clean and comfortable, and, apart from microwave and toaster, was fairly basic in keeping with the price. Negatives: room short of powerpoints; parking spaces fairly tight for turning larger vehicles; as per other reviews, wifi access was a disaster - very poor signal.

Spent 2 days over a weekend here. Rooms were basic with bare essentials (jug of milk and water in the fridge only) but you get what you pay for so can't complain about the too much. The only thing that was missing was the ironing board in the room when it had the iron in it. The decor of the...

We recently stayed here and the free wifi is garbage ! It can only be used outside and close to the office, it wont work in rooms at all. The owners have a small dog that uses common areas as a toilet. TV is a joke, i have a bigger computer monitor. Will never stay here again, EVER.

Clean but smelly. The motel is great value for money if you don't like the smell of cigarettes. We couldn't stop the smell of dirty smokers outside the rooms. Close to club and pub and great river across the road

Stayed 2 nights. Clean and tidy. Pet friendly and the service good Right across the road to the Tweed River. Sharon is manager and gives great service. Grandkids loved the motel dog Bonnie Who is friendly and playful Pub is close by. Heated swimming pool up the road and a skate park next to it.

Thank Anne M
