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. The dining room have a great view. I only had breakfast there and it was very good and the staff excellent. As for the reception on our arrival is... More

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!

Best Western Lakeside Inn & Conference Centre is a great hotel. The staff were wonderful and made sure we had all the information we needed to make our stay enjoyable. We would most definitely stay here again.

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
