We went there for work/skidoo trip and they were nothing but friendly, yes there was a GRATUITY but it was optional, you could tip them what you wanted! They brought us our breakfast at the time we asked, we weren't there for dinner so they made us lunches for the day, how could you go wrong? My only issue is... More

I had two of my staff stay here and the price quoted on the phone was less than half of what our credit card was bliled for. No receipt was issued when they checked out and after repeated requests we finally got an e-bill over a month later. Beware

The current owners are terrible people, not to be trusted. They are doing a great disservice to the reputation of the local comunity. This place has great potential but the place needs to get rid of that waky/insane couple and be taken over/operated by real professionals. Be VERY VERY carfull sould you choose to deal with these guys. I feel... More

NO FRIDGE AND NO AIRCONDITIONING. SO IF YOU ARE STILL INTERESTED, READ ON. Do not get distracted when asked to pay, do not just insert your credit card and OKAY it and put your pin in, NOOOOOOO YOU NEED TO SEE THE BILL FIRST. See, when you pay, you do not get the bill, you get the bill the next... More

After reading some of the bad reviews, I can't believe they're talking about the same place.The service was great,staff was very friendly and accomodating. They even delivered our dinner to the room after the dining room closed.The room was clean and the view of the bay from our balcony was outstanding.I would not hesitate to recommend Gordon's Lodge to anyone...

I am surprised at the reviews as my experience was wonderful. We were greeted by a very friendly young lady, she informed us of the gratuity and on we went. Granted the rooms do indeed need to be updated, but I travel very often for my career and was so pleased with the location!! In the morning we had coffee... More

I was surprised by some of the reviews posted after my own experiences here. I am very, very picky and I thought the experience was exceptional. The food was amazing, and the staff take real pride in the quality of the dining experience. I cannot say enough of how friendly and engaged the staff were. I have a two year... More

Motel hasn't been updated since the 70's, dirty rooms, and they charge as way to much for what they offer. No wonder it was rated the worst motel resort in Ontario. I would not recommend staying here.

On March 22, 2013 we checked into the Gordon Lodge. Like everyone else there is a gratuity rate added. We were booked into room 25 ...pulled back the covers of both beds to discover dead something in both beds (on closer examination the looked like dead fleas). I called the office and immediately had a return call and the woman... More
