We stayed in room number 5. Some minor repairs need to be done. The carpet was stained, the window was broken and duct taped, the bathroom door handle didn’t work properly and a lightbulb was blown in the bathroom.
The room was very spacious and the beds were comfortable. The decor is outdated and needs to be modernized. The tv is too small for the room. The WiFi worked great this year! I suspect it had to do with very little occupancy.
The place is quiet and far enough off the highway where you don’t hear the traffic. The grounds are always immaculate. The horseshoe pits look like they haven’t been used in quite some time.
Overall, the place was comfortable and clean and I’d stay here again.
We visited one night in September to see Goderich, go to the Blyth Theatre Festival and tour the Royal Homes factory in Wingham. Great little motel: very clean, beds were comfortable, bathrooms clean, we enjoyed sitting out front in the evening with no bugs and the highway noise wasn't bad. Quiet for sleeping. Air conditioning worked great. Simple breakfast place 1 minute down the highway across the road.
Goderich: Great location to pop into Goderich and visit the cute little downtown circle for shopping and an unusual circular walk; and the beautiful waterfront (I had no idea it was so beautiful - be sure to get to the Cove). We strolled the partially shaded boardwalk, stuck our feet in the sand and checked out the view of the salt mines from the Lighthouse viewpoint park.
Blyth: Dinner at the Cowbell Brewery wasn't the best food (it was good pub food), but the setting is what makes it. 20 minutes away. Make a reservation. They did a show at The Blyth Festival Theatre (May-September). Cute little local theatre we enjoyed.
Wingham: 30 minutes away - Who know the tour of the Royal Homes factory would be so interesting. Call them, apparently they do a public tour at 1:00 most days. They also then have a design centre 5 minutes away to tour 3 of their houses. They do multi-million dollar homes in Muskoka now, not just double wides anymore.
We would come back to the area and stay at the Dunlop motel again. but do a sunset dinner at the Beach Street Station.
