    Not worth the money

    The staff was great, but the price was way to high for such a run down hotel.

    It's an older highway motel but it's in good shape for its age. The room was fine. Bathroom is old fashioned but everything worked and the shower was an old school gusher. Location is good and it's comfortable enough if you don't need it modern. I would suggest they invest in flat screen TVs and improve the TV reception, though.

  • 6.0.Good

    Taxi driver told me it was closing down, staff very friendly and welcoming but room and bathroom very dated compared to others I had stayed in. Easy walk to harbour and downtown restaurants, a Tim Hortons on the other side of the road for breakfast.

    Served the purpose for us for one night. Hallways/ceilings need a bit of soundproofing but otherwise sufficed.

    It is a run down hotel. Old, stinky. We got a room in the basement. It was noisy, reasonably clean. At night there was all kind of business going on in adjacent rooms. It was a bad experience for us. Unfortunately that is what you get if you book a hotel room for $ 100
