This is by far the best hotel in the area. When i first visted Kenora we were booked into the Super 8, which was HORRIBLE i would never recommend anyone stay there. Then we luckly got a room at the Best Western and the stay was much better. Clean rooms, smoke free, great restaurant with a great view, comfortable beds,... More

This is a standard hotel, clean, friendly staff, convenient location. What makes this hotel unique are the lake views. I would suggest trying to get a room lakeside and higher up. We were on the 7th and my 2 year old daughter and I were amazed by the boats and float planes. She loved it, I loved it too!

The view from the dinning room at the Best Western Inn at Kenora, Manitoba was fantastic, with a spectacular sunset overlooking the Lake of the Woods. We enjoyed seeing the boats coming in and going out among the many islands. Nearby we could see the float planes ready to go out to the islands with fishermen and supplies.. A wedding... More

The rooms in this round hotel are pretty dated. The view (if you get lake view) make up for it. The bathrooms are small and cramped. The beds are nice and firm. I had 2 chairs and a desk in my room. There was also a fridge, coffee maker. The lounge is way over priced (beer $8) but again there... More

The View was beautiful and being on the water was great! The beds were unbelievably comfortable. However, the customer service and check in experience was not up to par. The pool was not open for the kids to enjoy.

After driving across Ontario, and experiencing terrible hotels, I decided to try something different. It was well worth it. For a fraction more on my bill, this place almost seemed luxurious. The girl who checked me in was extremely polite and professional. The room was so fresh and clean, the beds were like new and I slept so soundly. Since... More

We were recently at the Lakeside Inn for a 'Leading Mental Health' conference hosted by both of the local school boards. The hotel lobby was used extensively and it was very nice.

Due to my work in the Kenora Area, I booked a room to ensure that if the evening went late, I wouldn't have to make the trip back to Winnipeg.
