10/10 Exceptional

6/10 Good

The room was clean and as expected. Comfortable bed and pillows. Hot water would go from hot to hotter to scolding within minutes ; could not get it “stable”. Air conditioning did not work and spent a very hot night uncomfortable. Lastly, advertising said hot breakfast included to find out it was discontinued.

2/10 Poor

We like the front desk attendant but had a lot of issues with the room. The AC unit was very old my wife guessed maybe from the 70s or 80s. It does not classify as Air conditioning. Very uncomfortable temperature in room. The shower had great pressure but it could not stay one temperature for long. Always switching to a burst of very hot or very cold water. The door wouldn't lock from outside without almost breaking the key. The room was very dirty and needs an update. Walls gross. Towels disgusting.

2/10 Poor

Used to be a quaint stop over before entering Algonquin park. Now it’s just a broken down tired and sad motel that over charges for a room that’s not suitable for sleeping in. Next time we will sleep in the car.

4/10 Fair

The place in very ran down. The room was dirty and stunk of cigarettes and wet dog. The toilet bubbled and stunk like sewage. They did have an extra blanket (stunk like the entire room stunk) and tea kettle. The owner did call back after he did not pick up the phone when I called. Dirty windows. Dirty upholstery. Dirty carpet. Ewww

8/10 Very good

Small, very clean motel. Nothing fancy but nice size room with fridge and coffee maker and microwave. Town just down the street with places to eat, gas, grocery store, etc. We would stay here again. I would recommend to friends who don’t expect luxery accomodations.
