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....

We recently stayed here for one night. The hotel is dated as many others have said but is in a great location - close to many restaurants/pubs and one block from the water. The lighting in the bathroom is terrible, hard on the eyes and made it difficult to see. We had an adjoining room to ours and the guests... More

Staff is very friendly and very accommodating for what they have. It is outdated and run down and very smelly. I would only recommend this if your an extremely tight budget. This place is an extreme budget hotel that has towel and power issues and you need to ask for a refrigerator and air conditioning was put in promptly....in the... More

We stayed here on a weekend for a Lacrosse tournament with the family. Hotel is ok, it is older and shows it's age. Goes for the Tudor look. Our room was small and the bathroom was dated. Location however is great, close to everything. Kids loved the pool with a large water slide. Once again dated. It's one if those... More

We stayed here for one night on a Saturday. Our room was clean, spacious and provided everything we needed to stop in, shower, get ready and head out to an event in downtown Sarnia. The front counter staff were very polite at check in (despite having just got off the phone with someone who was giving her a hard time),... More

Drawbridge has a medieval look to it and the room we had was spacious and very clean. It is within walking distance of the Sarnia attractions and the locals were very gracious to us. Be sure to walk down to the river and see the lovely flowers and fountain. We saw a rainbow in the fountain and the pictures we... More

The maintenance was terrible. Ceiling cracks, door cracks, the bathroom was dirty and the smell was odd. I will pay more money to stay at a better hotel. The Continental breakfast was at best, weak! I will never again stay at this hotel.
