Editor's Analysis
Updated Jun 18, 2015
Located on Highway 43 and about a 1-minute drive to Highway 416, this hotel is popular with road travellers requiring an overnight stay on their way to Ottawa and with guests seeking a budget hotel while accessing the University of Guelph-Kemptville campus or other nearby destinations.

This non-smoking hotel has 42 air-conditioned guest rooms, each offering one queen or two double beds, free Wi-Fi, free local calls, cable TV, a coffeemaker, a microwave, a mini-fridge, an iron and ironing board, a desk, and a hair dryer. Accessible rooms are available upon request.

Free parking is available on site for cars and oversize vehicles. Pets are permitted for a fee of $10 the first day, and $5 each additional day.

A free continental breakfast is offered to all guests daily. Restaurants nearby include The Landing, a 2-minute drive west along Hwy 43, and Capilano Pizzeria, which can be found in town, a 4-minute drive away.

The Kemptville campus of the University of Guelph is about a 6-minute drive southwest of the hotel, while the Rideau River Provincial Park is a 10-minute drive northwest, along the way to Ottawa. Rideau Glen Golf Club can be found roughly a 5-minute drive southwest, and Ottawa's city centre and Ottawa MacDonald-Cartier Airport (YOW) are about 35 to 40 minutes north by car. (All travel time estimates: Google Maps)
The Good
Recent guest reviews read for this report showed favourable responses to several areas of this motel's service.

Staff were often appreciated for their pleasant and accommodating service. Guests said they had a good attitude and the new management of this motel was trying to offer good value and very clean rooms. 

They were also reported as updating the hotel with newer furnishings and a fresh coat of paint. One guest said the room he was in smelled fresh with wood flooring, a nice looking washroom and a decent sized LCD TV.

Many liked the location for being right on Highway 43 and having good access to Hwy 416, on the way from Montreal to Ottawa.

Several guests were quite pleased with the very low room prices and felt the hotel provided good value, along with a free basic continental breakfast, free parking and free Wi-Fi.
The Bad
The hotel is in an older building and offers basic rooms. Some weak areas were pointed out by guests who stayed recently.

Some guests said that the hotel was dated (although clean). Tap water at first runs brown if it has not been running for a while, although it clears after a few seconds. (Some were therefore brushing their teeth with bottled water.)

Some guests felt the breakfast was too minimal.

A few guests reported difficulties with Wi-Fi in the rooms, although they found it worked better nearer to the router in the lobby.
