Spent 5 nights in July over a weekend. Reception desk manager was friendly, we arrived early afternoon, with little wait on a Thursday.
We received a room on the 2nd floor. No elevator, so if you have a lot of luggage, stay on the 1st floor. Our room faced the drive-thru of McDonalds. If muffled noise from car engines and the drive thru speaker bothers you, ask for a room on the other side of the motel. At night, the curtain facing McDonalds should be longer, since outdoor lighting crept in under the curtains.
Room had two double beds with adequate space. Room features look updated, like the beds, wall decorations, flat screen TV, small desk, and drawers. However, they should have finished upgrading. Closet had an old ironing board and could tell the closet had been painted over. Refrigerator could barely chill anything. Bathroom tiles look old, and can see old radiator pipes hidden in the walls. No screen on window, so flies can get in. Room has a wooden floor that looked old. Free Wifi worked in room. Regarding soundproofing, I heard loud noises in the inner courtyard. Overall, though, motel is quiet.
Housekeeping had pluses and minuses. When we left clothes or my son's stuffed toys in the bed, the housekeeper neatly placed it on top of the bed. However, 3 out of 5 nights, we were short on face towels and one floor towel. Management was efficient and gave us towels upon request.
Breakfast in the basement was simple. Toast, bagels, cereals, packaged oatmeal, yogurt, boiled eggs already shelled, fruit, milk, OJ, apple juice, and coffee. Busy on the weekend, but we always managed to get a seat.
Motel is within 30-40 minutes to major tourist sites. Less than 15 minutes to downtown without traffic. Barely used a half-tank of gas for 6 days. While parking is free, signs on the outside of the motel warn about protecting your car from theft. Narrow entrance to parking lot from Kingsway, better to enter the back of lot from the side street.
Overall, a decent stay. However, I felt the room rates in summer are too high for this quality of motel. Perhaps in the off-season we would stay here again, but for peak season, I might want to spend more money for a higher quality hotel.
