Stayed for a tournament for 2 nights. The rooms were spacious and nice, the beds were comfortable except there were no firm pillows. We were on the first floor and it was great because we had a balcony door that went directly to the parking lot. The pools were nice but the restaurant was expensive. The only bad thing was... More

ldantimo, It was great to see you enjoyed your stay and that you had the opportunity to enjoy the facilities. It was unfortunate that both the pillows and the housekeeping services were not to your liking. For future stays, please be aware that we have a pillow menu (offering 6 different pillow types). In addition, if there is anything during... More

Hold On! that wasn't a compliment. Rather, it was a head-shaking on how this hotel consistently manage to disappoint me. I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions in the past. As a Platinum member, I requested for a room in the tower section. But instead, I got room on the main floor (which I can't stand) of the... More

Dear RTam87, I am very disappointed to read of your experiences with us and that you feel unappreciated as an IHG Rewards Platinum member. We truly do try and provide a complimentary upgrade for our platinum members at check in but due to the consistent high demand of our 70 room tower, they fill very quickly through advanced bookings.

We really enjoy every stay at this wonderful location near the Bluewater Bridge and Canatara Park...an easy find as you exit the bridge.. The Tower rooms are our choice..spacious, clean and nice views. However, the Bridges Restaurant is the big draw for us..terrific food, wonderful menu and great servings..the wine list is also very good. The staff are the best!!!!!!!!!!!

I had a room on the main floor of the old section. Totally needs to be renovated. Room was warn out, carpet was dirty and the room felt very stuffy. Ask for a room in the newer section. And I do not recommend the breakfast buffet.

Our room wasn't near as nice as any of the photos I see here. The room was a little outdated, but that's ok. It was clean. The washroom was nice. The room smelled really musty, we turned the A/C on and it got better. The best thing about this hotel is the location....minutes away from the casino and the border.... More

We stay here any time we are in the area - a couple of times a year- from weekend long stays to 2 weeks. I cannot say enough about the staff. From the greetings at the front desk, to the housekeeping staff. I can always tell when my 'favorite" housekeeper is working the moment I enter the room. Any questions... More

The Front Desk Staff was extremely friendly, great customer service. Room was very comfortable and clean. The restaurant has a great menu. We would have liked to golf and dine the golfcourse but we were short on time. The grounds are very nice and the hotel itself is extremely clean. Very close to downtown and lake front restaurants and tourist... More

I booked three rooms for 1 night's stay on June 29 for my family and I to attend a funeral. We were in the older section of the hotel by the banquet facilities. Yes, the hallways feel old and creepy, and the washroom needs to be updated, but other than that the rooms are fine and quite comfortable. I have... More

The rooms are outdated, the decor shabby and old. It was like stepping back in time, but in a bad way. It's really too bad, because the hallways are nice. The pool, sauna and hot tub are nice. The restaurant is overpriced, unnecessarily so. Instead of a fancy restaurant, investing in the rooms should be a priority. Everything is nice... More
