Stayed in Kenora one night after long day of driving. Selah Motel nothing flashy on exterior but our room on the first floor was beautiful, with new laminate wood floors, comfy beds, huge TV on the wall, air conditioning, and shower with good water pressure. When we arrived, we noted there were 3 big towels in bathroom and since there... More

I had a good stay overall! Family-run, who care about their business..rare nowadays. Pet friendly which is essential for travellers like myself! Easy enough check-in. Room was small but had everything you need, good use of space. Sleep comfort pretty good, thankful for AC. My only big concern was the rug covering the flooring on the second floor that apparently...

My son and I arrived in Kenora from Prince Albert about 9:00pm on the Friday night of Civic Holiday Weekend. The first place we inquired (a chain motel) had one room left and wanted $220.00 plus tax for a room that at best would normally be $150.00. The clerk said there was not another room to be had in Kenora;... More

We only stayed one night in July but found it to be very adequate for our needs. The staff were excellent...the motel was very clean! Kenora is becoming much too expensive for what you get. Stay here if you are just passing through.

This is a small and relatively inexpensive place to stay. I bit less glamorous then some of the reviews seem to claim. It's on a busy road and noise travels easy throughout. We ran the AC most of the time and it was enough to drown most of it out. The highlight of our visit to Kenora wasn't the accommodations... More

Had car trouble and pulled off in Kenora at 1am. Selah was completely booked but I was able to get a room for the next day. Love it!! Clean, updated, and the owner is great!! Totally worth the low price. If I'm ever back this way.. I'll stay here again. This was a fantastic place to break down :)

We were so surprised with this motel - the exterior does not do it justice. The prices were so great, the rooms were spacious and comfortable. Everything was very clean and the staff went above and beyond to accomodate. This motel by far surpassed all of our expectations. Whenever we head through Kenora again, this will be our stop!

Recently renovated, which is great. This motel used to be a dump. The new owners are very driven to please and go out of their way to make one feel welcome. Clean room, bathroom, sheets, very comfy bed. Great vibe! Truly a place to pause and rest.Fantastic value for the money.

From the road this was not the primary choice, but I have to say, this motel was an awesome choice. This is a family run motel. The amenities are limited, but the rooms are clean, modern and very comfy. We were only here for the night, but the beds were very comfortable, the staff super friendly and the space very... More
