The Good
The majority of the reviews sourced for this analysis were positive, with much praise going to the hotel's staff, location, rates and rooms.

The hotel's staff were praised by numerous reviewers, who found them friendly, accommodating, efficient and helpful with dining recommendations. One patron remarked, "The owner, Sam, is very friendly and accommodating. Shortly after we got into our room, he called to see if we were happy with everything. It was very clean and the bed was comfortable. We were on motorcycles and in the morning, he left rags on the outside chairs so we could wipe the dew off the bikes!".


Many lodgers were pleased with the hotel's location, describing it as close to highway access, shopping, restaurants, nightlife, a grocery store, Tim Hortons, a gas station and a convenience store. One guest noted, "The motel is situated right off the trans-Canada highway; therefore, it is a convenient place to stop which is really not that far from Ottawa. Also, there are many places to grab a bite to eat in the community of Arnprior".

Several guests enjoyed the hotel's rates. They found them to be reasonable, inexpensive, affordable and "great value for the price".

The hotel's rooms were complimented by several travellers. They described their accommodations as clean, quiet, spacious and well maintained, with comfortable beds and pillows and good water pressure. A few guests had complaints about their lodgings, however (see below).
