We are happy to hear from our guests… especially after they have had a pleasant stay with us! Here are a few of the comments our guests have left for us.

We stayed for one night on our way to visit family. Had trouble with the internet connection. The Hotel staff were very helpful with our issue. They continued working on a solution until we were satisfied. Definitely recommend this motel.

I booked this Motel for 3 nights and I was very satisfied with it. A very polite lady at the front desk and the room was great . I will stay there again on any returning visit to Cornwall. If I may add the prices are great compared to other places close by. The room was big , and very well kept.

Guests from Montreal, QC. – April 2016

If you’re looking for a motel this place is perfect, lots of room, clean and friendly service. Very quiet, didn’t hear a noise for the 2 days we stayed. The motel concept is so much better than a hotel, easy to load and unload, less noise, no hallway doors banging, etc. There is an Italian restaurant next door and the food is excellent, it is higher end but very reasonable for what you get. Also, WIFI was excellent, better than many large 5 star hotels I have stayed in.

Guests from Barrie, ON. – March 2016

A classic motel layout with ample parking and convenient to everything in Cornwall. The rooms are big and comfortable. The fireplace works well and warms the room in a hurry. The TV is modern and there is a good selection of channels. The WiFi works well and is quite fast. There is a coffee maker and my room had a nice leather couch and a good sized coffee table. There were ample plugs in the room for equipment. But the big win was how clean the room was — absolutely spotless! For the price, this seems like a steal. I will stay here every time I am in Cornwall.

Guests from Ottawa, ON. – December 2015

Our room was very clean & spacious. King size bed, hide-a-bed sofa & fireplace, (although weather was to warm to use it). Check in was quick, the the hostess was very pleasant. Would stay again. Good accommodations for dollar value.

Guests from Ottawa, ON. – September 2015

We are celebrating our 1 year anniversary today and I couldn’t have asked for anything better than this.  A beautiful room with an extremely comfortable bed and awesome tub.  Great setup, VERY clean and affordable.  We will definately stay here for future anniversaries.  Thank so much for your hospitality.

Guests form Cornwall, Ont. – June 2010

We have been to many places and stayed in many hotels and motels.  This is one of our favorites.  Very peaceful nights stay, slept through the night.  Large room, comfortable with a fireplace.  Loved it and will be back again when in the area.

Guests for Campbellville, Ont. – May 2010


What a lovely large clean room.  We were so exhausted from driving, what a treat to see your lovely welcoming lights.  Opening the door to our room brought such a sigh of releif.  We certainly will remember this place on our next visit.

Guests from North Bay, Ont. – May 2010

This is the second time staying at First Canada Inns with Jim and Brenda.  I can honestly say without hesitation that I am actually sad to leave this wonderful motel, and these warm and kind hearted people.  Luckily I will soon be here again.  High kudos to Jim and Brenda.

Steve Santini – April 2010

This is our fourth time staying in your lovely motel.  The rooms are clean, bright and comfortable. The front lawn has a beautiful park setting that we enjoyed very much.  We will definately be returning.

Guests from Gatineau, Qc – April,2010

This place is great!  I wish there were more places like this around.  This motel is so much better than every other motel chain we’ve been to so far.  Thank you.

Guests from Ottawa, Ont. – Mar,2010

It was a real pleasure to stay in your motel last night, so spacious, so attractive, so clean and comfortable, and so quiet!

Guests from Ottawa, Ont. -Jan,2009

We had a good sleep in your beautiful motel. My husband was glad that he could work with the wireless internet.

Guest from Austria, Europe – June 21, 2006


This has to be one of the best places to stay along the Toronto-Montreal route. A ‘special secret corner of tranquility’ – all amenities too – wireless NET was a bonus to keep in touch with kids.

Guest from Nova Scotia – June 27, 2006


Thank you for accommodating us and greeting us with such kindness and warmth. We felt such a relief to stay in a nice room after a long day of cycling. We will definitely recommend you to others and stay here again next time we pass through!

Guests from Chicago, Illinois and Washington, D.C. – July 6, 2006


Thanks for this lovely respite in the middle of a long trip. Your warmth, hospitality, and humour were just what we needed! Good luck with your new motel and we hope you get to retire before you want to or need to!

Guests from Boise, Idaho and Green Valley, Arizona – June 26, 2006


I am here to join the Waterfront Regeneration Trust as they complete an end-to-end bicycle tour of the Waterfront Trail (Niagara-On-The-Lake to the Quebec border). Thank you for your wonderful hospitality on my late arrival & the quickly brewed pot of tea – nice touch! Nice room too! Good luck with becoming a booming cycle-tourism destination!

Guest from the Ontario Ministry of Health Promotion Sport & Recreation Branch – June 28, 2006


Thanks so much! The turn down service was a nice touch last night after a long shift at the hospital. I have stayed at quite a few motels in town and yours is by far the cleanest and best priced in town. I’ll see you again ….maybe soon.

Guest from Gatineau, Quebec – February 4, 2006


We stopped on our way to a Perennial Plant conference in Montreal. The lovely railing & homey feel drew us in (as well as the price). Loved having a few laughs at check in. Made us feel part of the “family”.

Guest from LaPorte, Indiana – July 15, 2006


Visiting family in Cornwall hospital – your compassion and caring is greatly appreciated – when we are in Cornwall in the future, you have new steady clients. You are very professional – and your room & extras are the best.

Guest from Ottawa, Ontario – July 19, 2006


Thank you for extending such great hospitality – I felt like I was really “at home”. The special touches were really appreciated. The bed was wonderful, the pillows perfect, the fireplace provided that extra touch of warmth that really made my stay perfect! I’ll tell my friends.

Guest from Oakville, Ontario – October 20, 2005


Toute la famille se plait bien ici avec le frig, la grande salle de bain, la cafetiere, la tele, la balancois et les lits doublets!

Guest from Templemars (Lille), France – 12 Juillet 2006


As tour operators we see a lot of hotel/motel rooms. This rates among the best. It is roomy & homey and it is very clean. I’m glad I made the call to find out if you had availability.

Guest from St. Catherines, Ontario – August 5 & 6, 2006


Thank you for your very warm & friendly welcome from the time I called to book our room and also upon arrival. You really do treat us like family and we will be back probably at Thanksgiving to attend a family wedding. The Highland Games were great as usual and we are going home winners in Highland dancing.

Guests from Fenwick, Ontario – August 4, 2006


After driving all the way from near Grand Falls, New Brunswick to here, it was great to see Jim’s smiling face and great welcome! Our room was cool and inviting and the bed was so comfortable. We will recommend this great inn to our friends, neighbors, and relatives assuring them of a great welcome here. P.S. Forgot to mention how nice and clean the room was with lots of space!!!!

Guests from Woodstock, Ontario and Germany, Europe – July 21, 2006


This motel is a credit to the motel industry. Both the outside & inside are immaculate; we are so glad we saw it as we drove down the road in search of a place to stay. The Italian restaurant next door which you recommended was ‘spot on’ – both the service and food were terrific. My husband checked us in and had the pleasure of meeting the manager/owner who I’ll refer to as the ‘Unknown Comic’ because I don’t know his name; my husband tells me he was very funny (as in humorous). We will definitely stay here again if you’ll have us. P.S. My compliments to the grounds’ keeper. Thanks for your hospitality.
