We can’t give enough positive feedback about this place. Betty-Ann was most welcoming and very helpful. Our room was beautiful, clean and super comfortable. Although I’m not sure if it has A/C, it has a ceiling fan and great cross ventilation from the windows. It has everything you need......coffee (Keurig type) maker, fridge, microwave, paper towels, hair blower, iron, bath products i.e. shower gel, shampoo etc., and super smelling bar soap. Ice is available at the office if you need it. When (through conversation) Betty-Ann found out we had just gotten married a few days earlier, within a 1/2 hour, she and her cute little helper brought over a bottle of wine & two glasses.
Thought we were going to love this place. We booked three nights and because of weather decided to leave a day early. I let the owner know before five pm the previous night, to get within 24 hour rule. She said absolutely no refund as it should’ve been three. There is nothing written that it needs to be before three and she later said “well it was after five “, so she clearly doesn’t have a rule or a time set. (It was 4:30) DO NOT PAY upfront for your stay. She was rude and has a reputation of being cheap from the locals. It was a bad marketing decision as four friends asked me if they should stay there and I have said no unfortunately, as the unwillingness to discuss and attitude were not good. I was also told by her husband that the previous occupant of our room had been a homeless guy in quarantine. Guests don’t need to hear that information, doesn’t help the comfort level.
Not your ordinary Motel. Our room was spotless and very modern and the owner ensured we had a great stay. It's located just a short walk from the bay, where there's swimming, nice scenery and some tourist attractions.
Our stay here was very enjoyable and we were very pleased with our room. It was clean, modern, and comfortable. The owners, Betty-Anne and Wayne were extremely friendly and helpful. We found the location of this motel central to all the sightseeing we did. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this place.
The village of Manitowaning, just off highway 6, is nothing to shout about, but this small motel was just what I needed - somewhere quiet, clean, well-equipped and comfortable with friendly, helpful staff. The island of Manitoulin has some delightful small harbours and other interesting attractions.
I was made to feel very welcome when I checked in - I was sat down in the kitchen and lectured (in the friendliness of ways) on where I should go on the island - the advice was spot on.
My room was large, had a comfortable bed, table and chairs, microwave, coffee maker, fridge and good wifi. If I needed crockery or cutlery, I just had to ask. The tiny bathroom had a great shower. I was able to park directly outside my room.
By the way, if you try and put the motel address into your GPS, you might find it doesn't exist! Try telling it that you are looking for Queen Street, Assiginack, not Queen Street, Manitowaning. Having said this, Queen Street is signposted from highway 6.
I had a small problem getting my TV to behave but this was resolved quickly - it was unplugged and plugged in again!
