I had a one-night stay at the Pinewood a few days ago. Booking by phone was a simple process and check-in was quick and easy. I chose a double-bed room for $80, tough to beat. The room was small but clean and neat with a microwave, fridge and coffee maker, TV and free wifi. In the back yard were plenty... More

I booked the room not realizing the dates we chose were a holiday weekend, but we could not have been treated nicer. We were headed into the interior of Algonquin and this was our stopping point for the evening. We were very happy with the accommodations and the information we received while staying here. Too often people let you know... More

Good bed ( a bit small for two), extremely clean, perfect bathrooms. Too bad the furniture is a bit old and the rooms are with carpet. It has a nice backyard with the possibility to do BBQ. It has a few restaurants and good supermarket near by.

Thank you kindly for taking the time to write a review. We do have queen beds available if our guests would like a more roomy bed. Perhaps those rooms were full when this guest checked in. Thanks again for the positive comments! We hope you enjoyed your visit to Canada! Yvette & Mark :) More

Recently, my wife and I found ourselves stranded without a place to stay due to frozen drain pipes in our home. Residents of the Madawaska Valley, we had driven past the Pinewood Inn many times, and decided to give them a try, and 'move in' while repairs were underway. What a treat! From the very first phone conversation we had... More

I've been hiking in Algonquin Park frequently for 15 years, always staying close to & entering through the West Gate (western side of Algonquin). This past January I decided to explore the east side of the park and stay closer to it. I found the Pinewood Inn on line, found their website to be thorough and booked. My arrival was... More

We needed a place to stay while travelling to beautiful Barry's Bay. We found this hidden gem that offered a very clean room and a comfy bed. They have many of the amenities of a cottage for a tremendous value. With Lake Kamaniskeg in your backyard and Madawaska Mountain Ski hill just up the road, Pinewood Inn is a true... More

My 60 something parents booked a room here while we tried other accomodations. Ever since the visit they can't stop talking about how nice the mattress was, how fresh and cozy the room was. When our portable bbq broke down they allowed us to use their full size one. I must say after seeing how nice their accomodations were, in... More

My husband and I recently had to travel to Barry's Bay for a funeral, and chose to stay at the Pinewood Inn because of it's location and price. On past trips the motel didn't seem like much as we passed by, however we were working with a tight budget, and the price was perfect. We got much more than our... More

We pulled out of Algonquin Park and needed to find a place to spend the night. The Pinewood didn't look like much from the road, but we were weary travellers. Mark was so welcoming and showed us the rooms. Very clean, comfortable, free Wi-Fi. We didn't visit the backyard, but did head up the street for dinner at the Ash... More
