We stayed here because of recommendations from friends about the restaurant. The room was ok and the grounds were well managed with flower gardens. It's just off the highway enough to keep it quiet at night. There are two restaurants nearby, the Best Northern which specializes in home made Polish cuisine and a second one on the adjoining property. Both...

Very nice older motel that had been updated. Our room was spacious and very clean. Right off the main highway and about 4 miles from town. Has a restaurant and bar with a limited menu but the the food was really good but a little pricey. The service was great and the staff were all very friendly. Would stay again

Great 1 night stopover in Wawa! Rustic style hotel rooms, very clean albeit small rooms it was an awesome stay. There is a restaurant on site and another directly adjacent to the premise. We did not take advantage of either. No complaints on this end. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend if passing through Wawa.

We stayed here for 1 night on our trip around Lake Superior on motorcycle. The rooms were clean and it was a quiet place for being right off the Trans-Canada highway. We stayed here because it had a restaurant on site.

OK, so we were going to be very late, way after the staff's bedtime, but they arranged things so that we could get our rooms anyway. The owners / staff were more than accommodating and when we came in for breakfast, we got the surprise of some European style breakfast food on the menu! I'm going to go back to...

We were glad to arrive at this little gem of a place after a long day on the road between Edmonton and Toronto. We stayed in a 2-br cabin that was charming and clean, quiet and private. A perfect road-trip stop for a good night's sleep. Would absolutely stay again.

This motel was a good overnight stop for us on our way home to Vancouver, and one of the best places we found in Wawa. It is just off the Trans-Canada Hwy which is convenient. Traffic noise, surprisingly, was not an issue. The room is somewhat dated but it is very clean and comfortable, and the owners are very pleasant...

I booked this property after such wonderful reviews, to us, it was just an ordinary motel - there was nothing special about the room. To pay the price you do for the room and then see an overpriced breakfast menu on the desk, you feel like you're being fleeced! But, we need not have worried, they didn't open for breakfast...

I was assisting my 23 year old plan and get through a long 42-hour driver home to Mississauga, Ontario from Kelowna, BC earlier this month. Day 3 was starting from Dryden, On and after a couple of 12-hr days--a shorter 9 hour segment seemed in order especially with deer and moose making late night driving very dangerous through the Provincial...
