A Cornerstone of the City

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 26, 2005

A motel is a motel right? I never imagined one could actually be described as "fun," but the City Motel certainly fits the bill.
From the outer appearance, to the vast collection of sea shells in the lobby, to the stuffed shark hanging over the reception desk, I can guarantee you've never stayed in a motel quite like this!
The best part about City Motel is the theme rooms they have available to rent for the night. From the "Horny Buck Room" to the "Austin Powers Suite" there is something for everyone. The rooms are extensively decorated in their chosen themes right down to the fine details, and for only $10 more, they are worth the experience!

Unique Quality: Located within walking distance of two great shopping malls and cinemas.
Free movie channels in all of the rooms.
No pool, but the atmosphere of this place more than makes up for it!

Directions: On the busiest intersection in the city, corner of Regent and Prospect.

The City Motel (formerly the Sequoia Motel)

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 6, 2004

Conveniently located uptown, it's within a short walking distance of the Fredericton Mall, the Regent Mall (where there's also a cinema), a NB Liquor store, the Fredericton Inn, a Boston Pizza and a Dairy Queen.

It is also the hotel the closest to the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital.

The owner does a tasteful job of decorating around the motel to suit the time of year.

For those who haven't visited Fredericton in about 20 years, you may remember this place as the Sequoia Motel under previous ownership.

Unique Quality: Gift shop, but no pool. The Lobster Hut Restaurant, which used to be located here, went out of business in January 2006. Its replacement is called Hannah's Restaurant. Haven't been in yet to try out their menu.

Many of the rooms have a particular theme. Over 12 such rooms have been completed to date, and include an Austin Powers room, a military room, a bird room, a religion room, and a hunting room. (2010 update: the motel's website doesn't make any mention of these themed rooms, so check with them... they may no longer offer them.)

Detailed directions:

If you're going eastbound on the Trans-Canada Hwy (Hwy 2), take the exit to Fredericton (Hwy 8), and then take exit 6B, which will bring you onto Regent St. northbound. The City Motel will be on your right.
If somehow you miss the exit to Hwy 8, don't worry. Take the next exit (Exit 285A for Fredericton and New Maryland), and turn left towards Fredericton. You'll now be on Regent St. As you approach the 4th set of traffic lights, you'll see the City Motel on the right.

If you're going westbound on the Trans-Canada (Hwy 2), you've also got two options.
The first is, take the Hwy 7 exit into Fredericton. Keep going straight, and at the 2nd set of traffic lights (intersection of Prospect and Regents streets), you'll see the City Motel on your left. Turn left at the lights, then left again into the motel.
The 2nd option is to stay on the Trans-Canada Hwy, and take Exit 285B to Fredericton. You can only turn right here, and follow Regent St. into the city. As you approach the 4th set of traffic lights, you'll see the City Motel on your right.

Directions: Located at the south-east corner of Prospect St. and Regent St. The entrance is off of Regent St.

One of Fredericton's huge water towers is located right behind it.
