Numerous guests described the free breakfast as above-average and well-made, with many hot and cold items and excellent coffee.

The hotel's value was also praised by several guests, who described it as providing excellent value and reasonable rates. More than one said it was the best value in town.

Many appreciated the hotel's location which was described as right off Hwy 1, a quick drive to everything, close to walking trails and with beautiful scenery.

Reviewers appreciated the pool, waterslide and hot tub and said it was well maintained and clean, and most enjoyable, especially for the children. Guests also liked the large parking facility on site.
The Bad
There were not a lot of complaints found in the reviews read, but very occasionally a guest was disappointed that the hotel served breakfast in styrofoam and plastic containers. They felt this produced unnecessary waste.

Also, occasionally a guest would complain about missing the cut off to the hotel from the Trans-Canada Highway.
