Motel is older but we found it to be clean. Dogs are allowed. Price was reasonable for what you received. Good place if looking for a one night stay during a road trip. Tim Hortons close by. Their website does make it sound much better then it is.

We slept here for 1 night. We weren't looking for anything fancy, but for the price, we weren't expecting stained carpets and a weird smell in the room. Besides that, everything else was fine. Refrigerator in room, drapes were clean. There's a Husky right in front for gas and the way to city centre is not too far away...maybe 5... More

We are travellers that try and support the small family run business. We don't have crazy expectations for motels, don't mind dated, if the place is clean and well maintained with friendly staff we are all good. This motel was not cleaned well at all. The bathroom had things in it that I cannot mention...the bed was awful left us... More

Most pleasant experience in a hotel that I've ever had. Owners are absolutely wonderful. Place is small clean and pet friendly. Very good price. Beautiful middle courtyard that is a wonderful place for the dogs to play in. I go back there every year.

I stayed here while driving from Ontario to Alberta and it was one of the worst motels for the most money on my trip. The two good reviews for this place are almost 3 years old. I wouldn't even bother reading them because they definitely aren't accurate anymore. It's not that the Kenora Inn is bad, it's just not good... More

When we arrived, the sign on the door said "ring bell for service." We pressed the button 3 times and no one came, so we called on the phone. Apparently their door bell wasn't working. The person who finally let us in was friendly and efficient, and gave us the password for the wireless Internet. Unfortunately, it didn't work very... More

First, kimpete8, thank you for staying with us at the Kenora Inn Motel. We appreciate your business and your review. Second, I am terribly sorry that your internet did not work, and when reported to me by another guest the next morning, I immediately called our service provider and the issue has been resolved. I truly wish you had reported... More

Stayed in Jul 2010 - at first from the outside, thought maybe it wasn't much of a place, but was pleasently suprised by the cleanliness of the rooms, quite location, friendly & courteous staff, and great location.

From the outside, this place looked a little dubious, so from the parking lot we called around the big brand hotels, and couldn't get anything under a hundred dollars, so we decided to consider the Kenora Inn. When we went in, the lady was super helpful and friendly, even though we were checking in late and were pretty haggard. We... More
