Don’t Just Take Our Words for It; See What Our Guests Have to Say About the Outdoorsman Motel

  • The best hotel experience I've had. The rooms were tidy and well kept. The full size fridge and freezer as well as the barbecues were a great feature for someone like myself who was staying for an extended period of time. The coffee and cookies available early in the morning made for a great start to my work days and the owners were incredibly friendly and personable.

    y The room was clean and comfortable. Nicely decorated. The bathroom had apparently been recently re-done, as it was very clean and BRIGHT. I went to the office to get ice. Ray, the owner, asked if I was making a cocktail to un-wind, which I was. Ray handed me two glass, cocktail glasses, as he did not want us drinking out of plastic glasses. A touch of class, on Rays part. The owners were absolutely great in making sure their guests were comfortable. We would definitely stay here again..... Go Packers.......

  • Had a wonderful stay. The owners are very friendly and gave me some great advice on local things to do and see. The room was beautifully renovated and very clean. We really appreciated the full size fridge and freezer plus microwave. The parking lot was well lit and in good shape. Also the morning cookies and coffee are delicious.

    This quiet, clean, pet friendly motel in Wawa is one of the best spots we've stayed while traveling the TransCanada. There's a park with a playground directly across the street as well as a grocery store + several restaurants in walking distance. Owners are very kind and accommodating, they obviously love what they do. A note for my fellow vegan/lactose intolerant travellers: they had both Silk Oat and almond milk out for coffee service in the morning. What a thoughtful touch! We will be back again and again. Highly recommend.

    We were traveling cross-country to relocate and needed a stop in Wawa along our route. Becuase we were traveling with pets, our choices were limited and some of the places -- even national chains -- were run down and it was evident that NOBODY who worked at them cared about their guests or their business. Our expectation were quite low when we arrived at the Outdoorsman Motel in Wawa, but were surprised and delighted. It is charming and the owners have clearly gone out of their way to create a clean, inviting experience for their guests. Lots of little touches that show they care deeply about the role a good motel plays for a weary traveller. We loved that they had all of the take-out menus from local restaurants in the room and offered us some extra towels and cloths becuase they knew we were traveling with pets. Highly recommended.

  • This is a little gem in Wawa. The beds are super comfortable, you can tell the bathroom was redone recently and it looks great. The rooms are adorable. One suggestion I would make is to put a chain on the door to the rooms for little escape artists like my son (4yrs) , he was able to open the door freely so for the nighttime we put the table infront of the door to avoid him getting out. The room was impeccably clean, I swear not a spec of dust anywhere. Will definitely stay here again if we need to stay the night in Wawa. The cookies and coffee in the lobby are a cute touch for the morning. I'd also like to add that the staff are very friendly!

  • My husband and I stayed here twice, on our honeymoon road trip. On the way up, we decided to book here and we loved it! We loved the cabin vibe of our room. It was very clean and comfortable. The gentleman checking us in was very nice. They even offer some baked goods and coffee in the morning. We loved it so much, we decided to stay there again on the way back. It is a very small town so there's limited things to do but Lake Wawa is beautiful! Highly recommended!

    This is a great place to stay. The owners are friendly and totally on the ball. We had asked for extra bedding when we had called to book ahead and... boom... there it was in the room. They have coffee and cookies in the morning. We didn't really feel comfortable backing our trailer between some truck and the owner jumped right in and backed it up for us. Will stay again!

    I have been to dozens of motels across Canada, but this motel is by far the best!! Not 5 stars but 10 stars!! Ray and Lynn, together with their staff, are great people. Ray and Lynn make you feel almost like your family from the first moment. The rooms are beautiful, everywhere is clean, everything is working, WiFi is amazing, they even invite you for a coffee and cookies in the morning! This motel is better than many 4 star hotels!! I have been here twice and will come again. Thanks Ray and Lynn you are the best!!!!

    Extremely friendly staff! Lovely spot to stay. We stopped here for one night on our way through the town and decided to stay here over the other spots in town and we are SO happy we did! The rooms were spotless and clean. You could smell the cleanness of the room. The bathroom looked brand-new and just renovated. There was wifi, tv, fridge, microwave, table and a queen bed in the room. Very comfortable room and gave a lovely "home" feeling. We received free coffee in the morning and fresh baked cookies! The staff were very genuine, kind and friendly. Definitely will stay here again if we pass by again! Definitely recommend!

    I was dreading the thought of looking for a room in Wawa on a Sunday night but we were too tired to keep driving. I chose this Motel after reading so many positive reviews. It is gem! Don't let the rustic appearance of the rooms fool you. The decor is not old and musty, it's beautiful and comfortable. Our room was very clean and had an updated bathroom. We would certainly stay there again.
