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

Never again. New owners can barely speak English, called me a liar when I quoted their website, lied to me saying there was no managemnet that I could speak to and lied to me saying they were not new owners. Never again! There are many beautiful places to stay in Algonquin that welcome your business and will treat you well... More

The Algonquin Parkway Inn is located on the bank of a small river, just outside East exit the park, adjacent to route 60. We had a room facing the river. The motel is very basic and older, but our room was spotlessly clean and had a small refrigirator, microwave, and coffee machine (all new). The Inn is under new management... More
