Location was great for my hiking and the room was clean...better sound proofing would have made it better, but overall, I was content.

No Bathroom amenities and no AC. I want to recommend that they have to have those standard bathroom amenities like soap or body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion. Luckily, I brought those supplies myself.

Well this is a Motel no doubt. However, in my opinion the linens could have been better. We did not get a clean impression. Besides that the location is very convenient and central for the area. Tobermori, Lions Head, Owen Sound are within an hour or less reach. The owners are nice people. Overall it was fair considering the seasonal appeal of the area and the cost constraint due to the pandemonic.
