Okay, I am NOT a travel diva -- I happily stay at no-frills hotels all the time. But The Drawbridge Inn consistently did not fail to disappoint. The internet barely functioned in the room, so I was forced into the lobby, where apparently the staff was engaging in an unannounced bellowing competition (the cleaning staff outside the room in the...

Stayed here 2 years ago and was happy to return. Friendly staff, great rooms. The bathroom had a vanity and sink in one room, and a vanity and sink in the room with the shower so 2 people can get ready at once. It's downtown, so we walked to restaurants and shops. The parking is a little weird, but no... More

I stayed at the Drawbridge for two nights. It is an older hotel, but does not suffer from its age. It's very clean and my room was comortable and contained all modern amenities. (The only exception was the bathroom sink, which had some enamel damge. Looked bad, but worked fine.) Check in was quick and easy, and there was ample... More

Reserved on line for this historic landmark hotel. What a disappointment and RUDE desk attendant. We opted to pay cash upfront and requested to see the room. We were told "go ahead and look but you will pay for the room anyway" Then, we were asked for a $200 deposit in cash since we were paying in cash. We are... More

We enjoyed our stay, the pool was OK, breakfast in the morning was good, and the staff were cordial. My issue is with the "pot smokers" a few doors down. We traveled with our children, and all day Saturday and Sunday, all we could smell was marijuana, when we said something to the front desk, they said that there wasn't... More

Stayed one night in this Inn. Great staff and a nice clean room with a comfortable king size bed. It is a bit dated but still shows well. Only negative was that there was something loose outside our window and it kept banging the wall, which affected our sleep. Notwithstanding the two hours of snow removal in the middle of... More

I was driving my S.O to Flint, MI from Toronto, ON for a conference on Friday and we didn't want to stay in the States overnight. He found the Drawbridge Inn based on proximity to the border (so I wouldn't have to drive far in the evening after already having driven 6hrs earlier that day) as well as its price... More

This Hotel was the only Hotel left in Sarnia for the U-17 World Hockey Tournament. The rooms are dirty, the drywall tape is peeling off the ceiling , the tv doesn't work properly, it stinks, the bathtub is worn , the towels small and like sandpaper, the front desk staff although pleasant , haven't really got a clue about anything....
