    Dishonest and paper thin walls

    We were NOT happy with either the place nor the service. When we arrived the man tried to charge us an extra $10 claiming we need a larger room with an extra twin bed then we reserved. He claimed it was a favor as a disconnected rate. We asked why, how big is the bed. He said it was a double, which is what we wanted! We told no, we only want the double bed, we are only 2 people, we don’t need an extra twin bed, beside we are only there 1 night. Then he claimed he didn’t have the double bed we reserved but would charges us only $5 extra, we still said no we only want what we reserved. He finally agreed to give us the room at the price we reserved. We never used the twin bed so why should we pay extra for a reservation they already agreed on?! The point is not the $5 or $10 it is dishonesty and somewhere trying to pull one on a customer. Then we stayed in a room that was so paper thing we could hear EVERYTHING that went on in the other rooms. I have NEVER stayed in a place so paper twin. We heard tv, conversations and EVERYTHING. Would NOT recommend.

    I stayed as a stopping point on the way to Nova Scotia. I was greeted by the owner, who was very nice and provided information on local restaurants, etc. The hotel is older, but at the price point, I have no complaints. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I also found it to be quiet. The room also had a fridge, microwave and even a few dishes that could be used by those staying. This was a plus for me, as I was able to make breakfast before hitting the road.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The property owner was very friendly and helpful. However, the room was very basic, dated, and had a slight mildew odor. With no AC or fan, the room was hot, even with windows open. All we could smell from other rooms with the window open (again, necessary due to the heat in the room) was cigarette smoke. We decided to leave after showering and did not end up staying the night due to these issues and safety concerns. We would not return to this property.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Very spacious suite, check-in process went very smoothly. However, the cleanliness is disappointing. We found bugs on one of the pillows (looked like bed bugs) and decided we're not going to risk it with the kids and cancelled our stay. Also, the decor is very dated with many of the amenities and furniture requiring replacement as they're worn out
