•Friendly staff interested in making guest's stay enjoyable. •Clean room, freshly painted, newer mattresses, quiet mini-fridge, quality LCD TV •Good simple breakfast ($) Unfortunately I found a tick crawling across the bathroom floor. This is bound to happen this close to the park, I suppose. It was not a result of neglect. A hard surface floor with a solid light... More

Stayed in the housekeepers cabin and it was an inexpensive option for a group of four to share, had a little Kitchenett, and you are allowed to have a camp fire. If you want privacy then don't share this between 2 couples as you can hear into the bathroom from the living room / double bed. That didn't bother us... More

Whitney is a small community - even smaller than we expected - but it has a choice of places to stay. We were looking for lodging for one night on our way to camp in Algonquin Provincial Park and chose this one. It was a good decision. The motel rooms are rather basic, but clean and comfortable for an amazingly... More

This is a pretty basic motel with very cheap furniture and tiny showers but it is cheap, clean and the water was hot although the free wifi didn't work at all. We booked it for the proximity to the park and were not disappointed in the location. (Apparently you can frequently hear the wolves howling from here although we did... More

Stayed at East Gate on August 6th for one night before heading out into Algonquin Park. Was a great price! My only complaints besides noisy construction workers into the night (not the hotels fault) was uncomfy pillows! Otherwise was great.

This is the second time we have stayed here, its clean and good value for money, staff are pleasant and welcoming, breakfast good but choice reduced since the last time we stayed here. The rooms are cosy but have all you need and clean and tidy, overall for the price you cant go wrong staying here. The Mad Musher a... More

We stayed for 3 nights and even though the weather was not the greatest we had a fantastic time. The family who owns and runs the motel are so friendly and pleasant. We enjoyed having our breakfast in their dining area and how they had a fire pit available for our us to enjoy in the evenings. So close to... More

This is a motel and nothing more. They do have a "breakfast" restaurant with good food. The place is older but kept up nicely. Room was clean and nice smelling. Smallish bathroom but good water pressure. Convenient for a quick day trip into Algonquin Park to visit friends there. Would stay there again if in the area.

We having been staying at the East Gate for 20 years, and it still remains a quaint little motel at the east entrance to Algonquin Provincial Park. We use the East Gate as our back up, when rain is forecast, but our holiday is already planned in the park. the staff are friendly, they serve a top notch breakfast. (not... More

The price is right. Rooms are very basic but clean. Recently stayed there two nights a week apart. Both times, the beds were comfortable but tended to squeak when you moved on them. Staff was very pleasant and welcoming. Breakfast was a great bargain and well done. First week the internet was not working and that was frustrating. That was... More
