The first thing that struck me about the Motel was the owner, Elizabeth. Knowledgeable, courteous and friendly, she gave me the 2 cent tour of places to go. The room was spacious and clean, and she was sure to ask if I needed anything at any time to let her know. The Location was near to the ferry, and 15 minutes away from main restaurants. There's a small LCBO, grocery, and art store a 10 minute walk from the property.

Room tip: All the rooms seem great, I was in room 1.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Wayside a few weeks ago as I was on the Island for a few days of work. Elizabeth, the owner was welcoming and the room was clean and comfortable. It’s also worth noting it was very quiet too… Something i’ve come to look for and appreciate on work road trips. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be staying there again. Thanks again for being a gracious host Elizabeth.

Stayed at the Wayside Motel in Manitowaning for 2 nights during a recent trip to Manitoulin island touring & visiting old family homesteads. It was an extremely clean, comfortable, large room & probably the most quiet room in a small motel we have ever had.
Due to info on website we were prepared for lack of dining or take out service nearby & were able to bring takeout purchases to reheat in room for dinners & our own breakfast supplies. Very nice bbq area & seating area out front but weather wasn't bbq friendly.
We would definitely stay at Wayside again if visiting island or catching ferry the next morning.

Hi Rick,

Thank you for your feedback and for letting me know that the information on my website was valuable and helped you overcome some limitation in tourism infrastructure on the Island. I will be happy to open my room to you in future.

Very nice place to stay. Clean spacious rooms, calm environment, with internet, tv, bbq. Host is friendly and addressed the questions patiently. Most places to cover are just 30 mins drive from the stay. Nice place to stay with toddlers as well.
