Really wish I had read reviews before booking this hotel! I read the description off the Santa's Village website and it sounded perfect. Lesson learned! Let me start by saying that I am generally not too picky. I'm pretty easy to please, but when it comes to my kids and their safety... I expected better. I was under the impression... More

On a recent trip to Canada we took our son, daughter in law and grandson to Santa's Village in Bracebridge - what a great place for really young children! We decided to stay over at the Muskoka Inn. What a disappointment! While I recognize they are undergoing renovations and things are likely to improve, the overall experience was poor. The... More

My parents just came back and had a a great time and nothing you say in these reviews are true. My mother is very picky and said the place was VERY clean, the food was excellent and the staff was extremely accommodating. Obviously these negative reviews are coming from competitor or disgruntled ex-employee as everything they say in the reviews... More

Not happy with this place. Reception area was not pleasant. Very expensive for what you get. Noisy, outdated place. Would not recommend. Smelled of smoke and very unkept, An older typical motel kind of room that I would prefer not to stay at.

We arrived yesterday at 2:30 to find that our 3 rooms had been given up to someone else. We were sent to some sad little nearby hotel that was not worth the money we paid and had no pool or bowling alley as we had been promised at the Riverside hotel which is under total renovations and is a total...

This hotel, which was once the jewel of Bracebridge has recently changed hand. The previous owners had closed dining room for breakfast but had provided an extensive continental breakfast in the Teletheatre area. The current situation is that the pool and hot tub are closed, and empty, and the dining room has been closed. The breakfast area is now in... More

I stayed here on a road trip. I could see that this place was a very nice place and location was good.Love the riverside view and cruising. Friendly staff, clean and comfort rooms. Good for single person not couples.

The location of this hotel is truly enviable and the restaurant is okay. However that's where all the compliments stop. The entire facility needs refurbishing...a total overhaul. The price to stay here is outrageous since this place is pathetic in many ways. I believe they were looking to off load this place to some one with a little money and... More

Great location, but the Inn is sadly in need of refreshing. Carpets, first, then furnishings. Everything is dated. Breakfast was a basic continental, which is never thrilling, but dinner in the Riverside Restaurant was very good and exceeded expectation so clearly, they do know what guests want, just don't have the money to do the reno! Sorry, but if you... More
