Spacious room, nice to have kitchen facilities.
Bleach in the kettle, yuck. Laundry/cleaning products very smelly.
Extremely noisy! No insulation between rooms so we could hear very clearly every word spoken next door, water running, tv - very hard to sleep! Road noise loud all night and bright lights shining in. Hot and stuffy but air conditioner sounded like an airplane taking off. Beds were also noisy - any movement caused scrunching/squeaky sound. Should not advertise "continental breakfast." We had to ask for it (no designated place to eat it/serve it) and the front desk person said, "Oh, well we probably have some muffins or yogurt" and went to a back room and rummaged around for a while and came back with a couple of muffins on a paper plate and a couple of yogurt cups.
Location was perfect for us. Price was reasonable. Room with a kitchenette. Good soundproofing between rooms.
Tea pot was missing a lid but isn't much use without a kettle so had to make tea in the coffee machine. Our room was painted with what appears to be latex over oil paint so there is peeling and paint in the bathroom is already bubbling. The smoke alarm went off several times just from boiling water.
The motel was right off the highway and easy to find. It had been recently renovated,and the rooms were comfortable and quiet. The owner went above and beyond to provide everything we asked for, as did the cheerful cleaning staff.
Due to Covid, the continental breakfast was a tray of muffins, yoghurt, orange juice, instant oatmeal mix, coffee pods, powdered creamer and paper cups. Fortunately Tim Hortons was only a short drive away.
