Located less than a minute's drive south of Highway 11 (Trans-Canada Highway), this motel is sometimes booked by roadside travellers making their way through Northern Ontario. 

All of the 50 rooms at this non-smoking hotel have free Wi-Fi, a coffeemaker, a hair dryer and an iron and ironing board. Standard rooms have queen or double beds. Suites have a kitchenette (fridge, stove, microwave, pots and pans) and a queen bed. Pets are allowed for a cost of $29.75 per night plus a $100 refundable deposit.

There is no on-site restaurant, but guests are sometimes offered a complimentary continental breakfast daily. There are a number of restaurants within a 5-minute walk of this hotel. On-site amenities include free parking, a hot tub and a games room.

This hotel is less than a 5-minute walk to downtown Hearst. Notre Dame Hospital and the Hearst Golf Club are both less than a 5-minute drive away. Fushimi Lake Provincial Park (camping, fishing, hiking, picnicking) is just under a 40-minute drive away. (All distances and travel time estimates: Google Maps)
