So I made a booking online about 10 hours prior to my estimated time of arrival. I was too tired to from already driving 8 hours so I had to cancel my reservation, spoke with the attendant and they ensured me it was fine. Of course, they charged me and once i discovered that i called the manager Pilla to... More

I booked two rooms with a bathroom. One room was to have two beds and the other one bed. They were having a band that night in the bar and gave away my rooms. They showed us Three other rooms that we could have. No bathroom in one of the rooms. Since there was a loud band going on and... More

Stayed at the Algonquin for 3 days/nights. I was treated so well and the room was excellent. Everything I needed was either in the room or was provided immediately. I am a disabled man and the owner and staff treated me like family! Will stay here again any time I am in "the Soo"

Rude and ignorant cleaner. We were just finishing packing 10 minutes before check-out when I could hear a loud voice saying 'I'll get there a#ses out bed'. When wondering who that comment was referring to it was 5 seconds later a loud and aggressive bang on our door confirmed it was us. On opening the door the cleaner was standing... More

Booked a room with a bathroom but got one without. Sheets appears clean and shared washroom was okay. Got in late and left early just needed somewhere to stay on the way to Alberta, it did the trick. Don't expect much, super uncomfortable but no bed bugs and not super loud so that's what counts!

We asked to see a room for two. The proprietor then began by showing us a suite. We didn't want or need that. Then he showed as a room with two full beds, we didn't want that either. When we began to feel bad about taking up his time, he showed us a simple double with a shared bathroom. We... More

No air conditioning in the room, you can open window a few inches for ventilation outside air of extremely bad smell in the room. If you would love bad smell, humid air, stone hard mattress of 100 years and primitive live, this is the best place. Felt like new expensive tour of "Alcatras prison cell experience" -- reality was Alcatoraz's... More

The good: The staff was kind and tried to help. The bad: most everything else. I'm no fan of demolishing old buildings, but this one needs a lot of work. There is no room control of temperature so you're at the mercy of the boilers. My room in February was a very "comfy" 64. Great for sleeping, lousy for sitting... More

The hotel is VERY economical and convenient to many of the Soos attractions. Although, the room was clean, it was tired. However, you get what you pay for. We did not feel unsafe and the bed was adequate. I wouldn't stay a week here, but it was fine for two nights when we had plenty to do during the day.... More
