Ava Lodge motel opened in 2014. Feeling more like a small hotel than a typical motel, Ava Lodge offers twenty thoughtfully detailed suites and apartments, catering to business people and tourists alike. The goal was to provide guests with an exceptional experience of comfort, quietness and security within a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where they feel at home. The building is striking with bold and quirky colours surrounded by lavish landscaping and less than a minutes walk from restaurants, cafes and boutique shopping opportunities of Jackson Street.
