Overall had a good stay at this hotel. Had stayed there in the past but there has been some remodeling which is a nice enhancement. View of the lake is always nice, even in the winter. And close proximity to shopping...

Really nice renovated room, large with lots of space. Nice bathroom, really liked the decor. Staff was very friendly, common areas in lobby were nice. Easy to get to from the highway. It took a while for the hot water to kick in, once it got hot it was totally fine but the first few minutes were a bit chilly.... More

Mostly nice rooms, with nice lake views available at extra cost. Not cheap, in particular in the summer time. Very pleasant staff. Mediocre restaurant, but very pleasant staff throughout. Room quality depends on what floor you are staying at. Some have been renovated, others need to be!

I booked a room for myself despite less than great reviews from my friends. I'm glad I did. I had a clean room and a comfortable bed, those are always my two main concerns. It was a quiet night even though there was a hockey tournament in town, there must be thick floors in the hotel. Cool room because it... More

Lakeside Inn has the single best location of any hotel around Kenora. Excellent room with a stunning view of Kenora harbour. Everything was modern and very clean. The bed was fantastic! Super-sized pillows and excellent quality bedding made for a very comfortable sleep. The hotel restaurant served a gourmet meal for a decent price. Highly recommended!

I can say honestly this was the best hotel experience I have had in Canada. Perfect ! My dog was welcome too . The breakfast was excellent, as was the view from the room and especially from the restaurant. I look forward to visiting here again.
