General advice received from those who claim to know

  • Internet and Deep River Hotels: Currently (January 2006), the Bear's Den has Broadband Internet Access via cable connections. Deep River Motel has fast wireless Internet. It was mentioned the Deep River Motel wireless as faster than the Bear's Den broadband. The Shemron Suites supposedly has some wireless connectivity (needs clarification).

  • Most hotels and motels have weekly and monthly rates. If staying for a decent amount of time, check these out.

  • Based on what visiting students have done, if staying for a season or so, it can be cheaper to rent an unfurnished house or apartment, then buy a bed, table and some chairs.

  • In Spring and Summer there are quite a few yard sales for those who want to purchase second hand furniture and goods locally.

  • Advice from visitors: before booking a room at a Deep River hotel, first check if any hockey teams have also booked in. And if so, check alternative accommodation for places that do not have hockey teams visiting.

  • Advice from visitors: It is not possible for guests at the Bear's Den to change their room thermostat. But it is possible to change room temperature at the Deep River Motel.
