The Algonquin East Gate Motel is now part of the Algonquin Accommodations Inc. family of business that include the Algonquin Dream Catcher Motel, Bellwood Inn Bed and Breakfast, and the Algonquin Rolling Rapids Motel! We took over the East Gate Motel in July of 2019 from David Kay and Dianne Tansley-Kay upon their retirement. We wish them all the best in their retirement years and were excited to continue the great legacy they have left us.
This year at the Algonquin East Gate Motel we are planning to implement rolling upgrades to the facility. We have already upgraded the bedding with new high-quality quilts as well as new light fixtures out side the doors. We will continue our efforts with a new paint job to each room, new bathroom mirrors, curtains, shower curtains, receptacles and switches and LED ceiling lights. The garden out front is going to get a renovation this year as well.
Also opening this year at the east gate motel is the new Algonquin Antlers store! This store will feature unique apparel, cool offerings from local artists and creators such as baked and canned goods as well as cutting boards and bedding that you can find in use on our propertys.
The Algonquin East Gate Motel features 11 units plus one cabin in downtown Whitney, Ontario; just minutes from Algonquin Provincial Park. Enjoy the fire pit and picnic area on-site!
