My wife and I stayed at the Inn mid-week on Oct. 14 during a visit to Algonquin Park. It's a great location, particularly the riverside rooms, but needs some serious upgrades. The room size was more than adequate, but the room itself was not well kept and needed some serious cleaning and updating. In particular, my wife described the bathroom... More

This was really not worth the money. Old and dirty rooms, with spiderwebs and dust across the room. At least the towels and blankets seemed to be clean. My bookings weren't known by the owner at all. Better booking something else in advance.

Bed was in a worst condition, keeps on moving and making noise. You can easily hear what neighbors are talking, reason could be poor quality of walls...no privacy. Basically, you can't sleep until people in next room sleeps or you are a good sound sleeper. Washroom had no exhaust fan or window for the smell to go away. Looking at... More

We travelled six hours by motorcycle on Saturday of a long weekend only to find the owner did not have a record of the reservation. It was late in the evening and every hotel/motel in the area was booked. After a lengthy argument with him, many many phone calls he came to me and offered a room that was reserved... More

It was our first time at the Alginquin Inn. It is a well used establishment, clean but dated. You can see the current owners are trying to fix and update. But, it takes time. Our server, Ditchka was a joy. We always looked forward to chatting with her during breakfast in the restaurant. The location off the highway has spectacular... More

The only thing filthier than the floor was the bed. I can tolerate a lot of filth, I don't like it but I can hunker down and get thought it. This is the closest I've ever come to leaving upon entry. We stayed because the area was sold out of rooms. Should have slept in the front seat of the... More

I have stayed there each Sept./Oct. for 2-3 days for the past 4 years. I always stay in room 12 with 2 double beds and it overlooks the river. I love the location being next to 2 restaurants, gas station, grocery store and pizza take-out. I find the room clean and comfortable although the motel is very old but you... More

This is a motel that has gone through many owners, some good, some not so good. We all know that miss managed ownership can tarnish a establishment for many years. please give this motel a try and it has been renamed the Algonquin River Inn., Simple, but worth the value and new friendly ownership. Sammie will look after you. He... More

We have been going to the East end of Algonquin Park for over 25 years now because it is the closest place to one of our favorite lakes, Openongo. It has always been just one level higher than camping, but at one time, we found the East Gate Motel a great place to stay and loved the owners, Bob and... More
