I brough the family to Kenora for a mini vacation. We stayed at the Lakeside Inn. The location is perfect. Just on the outskirts of downtown. The view from our room was spectacular. Staff were very friendly. Room service was quick. Our newly renovated room was very nice. The beds were comfy. The stand up shower was beautiful with lots... More

Fall colors were beautiful on our motorcycle ride to Kenora. We always stay at the Best Western. The views from our hotel room are inspiring. We can see the stars out at night and the lights of the city reflecting on the water. The bed was so comfortable that we slept in.

We stayed for a night as a getaway for myself and my spouse. The renovations done since our last stay here are wonderful. The updated rooms are great, beds so comfy. The only trouble we had was the housekeeping should have cleaned better. I found a pubic hair on the top of the toilet tank. That grossed me out. There... More

Very satisfied customer, interesting hotel location on Lake of the Woods. Had breakfast on the top floor overlooking Lake of the Woods. Room was recently renovated and bed and quality of linen was super.

Great location right on the water. They are busy updating the exterior of the hotel which is badly needed. The beds are all new and very comfortable. The furniture is a little out dated but the hotel is very clean and comfortable. Pretty sure their next step is to start updated the interior which would be awesome. The restaurant upstairs... More

The Hotel rooms are being updated which is a much nicer experience that previously. The view is fabulous however the windows on the outside need to be cleaned. Any outdoor fisherman would love this place. Close to boat docks, right on the water. Directly across the street from Safeway if you choose to buy food instead of having to wait... More

We stayed here last Sunday night. The location by the lake is wonderful-enjoyed the view from our room. The room was very comfortable, with nice amenities. The hotel was quiet, which I understand is typical in September after the long weekend. The walk to the main downtown part of Kenora was easy and pleasant. Hotel parking was convenient and the...

Good value for money. Great staff and a good restaurant.Nice views of the lake. My stay was payed for with my points and if anything I was treated better than if I was paying cash a welcome surprise. I would recommend this establishment to anyone. They are refurbishing so it might be worthwhile to check ahead.

I enjoy staying at this hotel when travelling for work as the rooms/beds are very comfortable and the scenery is fantastic. City view rooms are noisy but if you have a lake view room it is peaceful. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The lounge is great for a drink and a late night snack (the food is delicious).
