Went to Kenora for the Kickoff The Summer event featuring Burton Cummings and since it was a late night we stayed over for the evening. We had a room on the 7th floor with a fantastic view of the lake. Room was excellent although the bed was a little too soft and the pillows too thick for our preference, we... More

I just stayed here this week for business. Check in was quick and painless. Although I asked for one of their recently renovated rooms I ended up in a room that has not been renovated yet. It was still very clean and did the job. The view out of my room overlooking the lake was terrific. I would stay here... More

I only have good things to say about the staff at the Lakeside Inn. They were friendly, helpful and greeted me by name, even though it was the first time I had stayed there. The hotel is clean, quiet and the view of the lake(s) is wonderful. What a joy it was to watch the sunset lakeside after a long... More

We spent one night at the Lakeside Inn and were very impressed with the wonderful view from our 5th floor room of the Lake of the Woods as Spring break up of the ice occurred. Our room was very clean, with immaculate fresh bedding. The carpet was new. The bathroom was also very clean, but could use an updating. I... More

Stayed two nights at this unbranded property. I was a little scared because it is an older hotel and I heard some horror stories over the years. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it had been renovated. Front desk staff were fantastic. The rooms were pleasantly updated with a large tv and wifi worked great. I had a room... More

I stay here just recently. The place had new renovation with half the rooms which I stayed. The rooms are clean and nice. Under the new management I heard, now even better place to go now. Friendly service, and staff is very nice. I will stay here again!

Visited Kenora to give a conference, at the hotel. On the plus, the room I had was nicely renovated, reasonable view(802). Clean and nice amenities. Staff courteous and helpful. The Lounge on the top floor affords a fantastic view, but the selection of beers and beverages is standard. The hotel itself is dated. Old elevators -stuck for most of the... More

This is an older chain hotel, some parts have been renovated but the bathrooms would need a little update. It's clean and the location is very nice close to the lake.
