If I could give this hotel "0" stars I would. What a freaking hassle. I travel a lot and have never had this much harassment from a hotel owner. Booked this over the phone. When we arrived the rate being charged was higher than the quote on the phone. After15 minutes we FINALLY got the original rate (after the owner... More

When the guest checked in, the guest was asked how many adults and he said only 2. However, guest had 5 people in the room and he did not want to pay for 3 other people. Once the front desk agent found out that they had more than 2 adults, they called him and asked to come to the front... More

My mom, brother and I were travelling from TX to MN and we needed someplace to sleep. I was pleasantly surprised. The guys at the check in desk were friendly and gave us a discount on the price. Our room was on the second floor but there isn't an elevator, so one off the guys helped us with our luggage.... More

We booked a room here for two nights because it was the last hotel room available in town that weekend. I had been avoiding the place because of the other reviews here, but we had no choice. We were there for the Ol' Marais River Run and we needed a place to shower and crash. We were pleasantly surprised at... More

The last time I stayed at any EonoLodge was probably over 15 years ago and I swore I'd never stay in another one...but it was a dark and stormy night and I was tired of traveling. It was cheaper in Ottawa than going down the road an hour, so I chanced it. It was nice, clean, and much better than... More

We had a good stay until the third day. We woke up to a call from the front desk (Mr. Ramesh) and he told us we had to bring all our id info and card info up to the front desk by 2:00pm or we would be kicked from the premise, even though we provided all this on day one.... More

Rolled in last week for a brief overnight stay. Told the desk clerk cum manager that I had stayed there before and asked him for the Best Possible Rate. We did a 'dance' for about 5 minutes, as he tried to find my previous record using two credit cards and two different phone numbers before he finally found it. When... More

We stayed for one night and had no problems. The rate was pretty good and the room and motel was what we expected. There was a bit of a smell however and we think that our non-smoking room had previously been a smoking room. Breakfast was pretty basic and there were only two tables in the breakfast area (both occupied... More

After making a reservation on line where the total price was quoted, we arrived to check in and the amount due was higher than quoted. When I asked about this the on duty clerk said it was a "safe fee" and "convenience fee" that the manager adds to all reservations. After refusing to pay and showing them the reservation confirmation... More

I stayed in this property for almost a week. I had my friends come to visit me often. One of my friends had a small dog in the pet taxi and before she came to my room took the permission from the lady at the front desk to allow her pet for an hour for which she agreed. After 5... More
