Pros: friendly staff, good location for hikes and day trips, fire pit available for use, fireplace in room, mini bar fridge, comfy beds, a small table to eat the food we brought in, use of kitchenette during covid (toaster, kettle, coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave), some nice updates (curtains, bedspreads, flooring, fireplace, sink)Cons: the bathroom wasn’t very clean (we found black hairs on the floor and tub), some of our towels had large holes in them, there were no shelves, closets or dressers for our stuff, some updates required (paint peeling from tub, rusty electric rad), we paid about $130/night taxes included which seemed high, but perhaps that is the going rate.

Great service and great and comfortable rooms. Loved the clean bathrooms and the BBQ grills and open fire pits (unlimited free firewood is supplied). Our host was amazing and went out of his way to satisfy our needs. Would definitely recommend this place!

This is a great little place for an over night stay. Very clean and reasonably priced. Furnishings are very basic. There is a small fridge in the room and a kitchenette a few doors down. We have stayed there three times.

Peacful place. We always love to stay here. Very clean rooms. And best part is fire pit right outside your room. And you can use as much wood as you want for free.

Stayed two nights with friends. Very quiet and nice place. Owner is helpful too. There are lot to explore nearby. The only problem was, lot of plugs were not working in the room for lights and charging.

This is our second time to Spirit Lodge and we love going out with our friends and families to this place. It is very conveniently located close to Bruce and Tobermory as well as beaches. This is great spot for kids especially they can play in park and get together camp fire . There is also shared kitchenette for meals. We will be visiting again.Ali

This place was an amazing stay for us as a group. Huge room with a shared kitchen and an amazing backyard with a small forest trail leading to a beautiful view of the nature. The owner was very helpful in providing us the logs for the bonfire. Having a barbecue and bonfire night was the best part of the stay at this place.

One of the best place to stay in Wiarton, ON. We really enjoyed our two night stay at this motel. The host of this motel was kind and courteous. The room was clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed the freshly made vegetarian samosas. Wifi was a bit slow but had an overall great experience staying at this motel.

Clean and basic humble motel. Unfortunately the wifi was erratic at best. On the plus side, roomy shower in a jacuzzi tub.

We stayed there for 2 nights and it was an amazing experience. They have a barbecue and bonfire for guests. You can sit and chill in the backyard under the stars. Near to market and have an mesmerizing view. Also, they have one common kitchen for guests with all appliances. Recommended to everyone for great stay in reasonable prices!

It's a good place to stay. Food is great. The only reason I give it 4stars is cos the menu is very very tiny. rooms are good. Bed is Ok.

What a gem of a restaurant. We came up for a weekend getaway and stumbled across this place. The food was some of the best Indian we’ve had- fresh and perfectly spiced. The mango lassis also had the perfect amount of cardamom to make them lovely. Absolutely add this to your places to stop- the rotating menu makes it all the more special.

A cozy tent experience featuring access to a bbq and communal fire pit. The tent fits a double bed, night stand, table and two chairs. Perfect for a quick getaway without the hassle of bringing all the camping gear. Accommodating hosts, and a decent cold continental breakfast of just muffins, cereal and coffee.

Great vegetarian Indian food in Wiarton. Not a large menu but enough choices for everyone. Clean facilities and friendly service. They are closed between 3pm and 5pm daily so you have to plan accordingly.

Very dirty and outdated! Floor was so dirty and sticky that I had to tiptoe in the bathroom. The washroom was more like a public one ( have a look at my photos). No way walking barefoot in the room. Dirty spots on the sheets. No microwave or a coffee maker ( they have one microwave for all the rooms for a shared usage). I didn't know that microwaves are a part of a luxury stay now 🙁 I, honestly, don't know how they got such a high review rating? The location is great though, I hope the owner will make important improvements. But now don't waste your money!

Have stayed at this motel three times in the last twelve months. It is exactly as described -- a basic motel. But it is very clean, the beds are very comfortable, and there is free wi-if and tv. Breakfast is simple (toast, cereal, muffins) Close enough to town for restaurants, etc.

Great motel in Wiarton! Also a great little fishing tackle shop, you can get live bait (worms/minnows). They also sell fishing license. Close to Wiarton waterfront and 15 min to Sauble Beach.

Have been staying there for the past 5 years. Great rooms and breakfast in the morning is a nice touch. You can have a bonfire in the backyard. There is a shop on site that sells camping gear/ local artisan crafts and ice cream. Well-managed and clean.

Spent two nights here and enjoyed a fantastic dinner at the restaurant. If you want excellent curry come here. In my opinion, this place is by far the best restaurant in Wiarton. You will not be disappointed in the fresh and delicious food. And it is a ma and pop shop so you know you are supporting a nice local family.

We love indian food. Stopped here after all day ATVing yesterday to try it out. We picked up take out dinner that was delicious. Wow! What an amazing restaurant and so accommodating. The owners made us delicious veggie butter chicken that was out of this world. The Samosas are the best we ever had. We went back to get more today! So good!

- Owner was helpful and pleasant - Oatmeal, muffins, apples, banana, yogurt, bagel, cereal, coffee/tea provided for breakfast - Kitchenette would've been nicer if other guests cleaned up after themselves. Has pots and pans, portable stove to cook on - Shower was a little cramped but cleaner than expected - Tent was smaller than expected but still comfortable. Humid, but can't control the weather - Firewood available for campfire upon request

The staff were very attentive and warming. The room we had was clean and tidy. Everything was organized well and we always felt safe. The shower was a little hard to navigate but there was hot and cold water right away.
