The fact that this place is open is a black eye for anyone responsible for building safety or lodging in Kenora. Completely infested with spiders. Webs, live insects, egg sacs in every room. In the 2 minutes I lasted I counted 20+ live spiders, among the feeder insects that must have attracted them. The corner of the room had separated... More

We were travelling & stopped in Kenora. The Comfort Inn was too pricey but they recommended the Anchor Inn. We drove there & liked the location. We parked in the back & walked through a little pass-away noticing some cobwebs. We got to the front & noticed more cobwebs & spiders hanging from the lights & the bench. As we... More

I have no clue about the cleanliness of the "resort" I would not recommend it. I booked a room for my daughter on July 3, for Saturday August 1 and called to confirm on July 31. I was told that all was ok, a room with one bed was reserved. My daughter arrived, no room was available and the desk... More

Anchor marina inn Disgusted! Don't ever stay there. Trust me! For the first time I have not been in this terrible condition of "INN". It should be updated and with a serious new foundation of the whole building. It is cute and nice on the outside but not so much in the inside. Outside is nice but not in excellent... More

My fiancé and I were driving through Kenora on our way to Calgary and were simply looking for a place to crash for the night. I wasn't looking for anything special - just somewhere with a clean bed to sleep, and a place to shower. I didn't think that was asking for too much. We found the Anchor Inn and... More

I came through town looking for a no-frills place and found it. It has an awesome view of the marina, and the price was right around $85 including taxes... Sure the rooms and buildings are dated, but it was built in 1939, so I can imagine the floors being a bit sloped... I don't care about little things like that...... More

We were there for just over 6 weeks for work, and loved the place. The rooms had were comfortable, and the view was great. Nice deck for everyone to go around and visit each other, met lots of nice people traveling through. Emily, Patricia, & Justin treated us all like family, we can't thank them enough for the great time... More

Had a family get together in Kenora......some of us stayed at the Anchor Inn. It was surprisingly cleaner on the inside than it looked from the outside. The bed was nicely done up.....but really old and uncomfortable. The shower felt like a pressure washer., and they have so much old junkie furniture in the rooms, it is hard to move... More

This is the best place I have ever lived. I love the great view of the lake, the lovely cottage, and the layout of rooms. I lived there twice. But I don't know why the restaurant closed recently. I will definately stay there there in the future.

This place is a no frills motel. It is quite dated, and the carpets could use a real good cleaning, if not replacing. The rooms were not level. We rolled a beer can across the floor in one direction, yet the door would swing shut in the opposite direction. This being said, the beds were comfortable, showers were good and... More
