Stopped for a late breakfast on Aug. 7th around 10 am. Two tables occupied when we got there. Took a table but got no acknowledgement from the waitress. Another couple came in shortly after us. This waitress ignored them as well and continued to clean tables. Finally after about 8 minutes she got us cutlery and menus - no offer... More

My family has been stopping at the Valois en route to North Bay every summer for more than 10 years. It's been a good stopping point rather than pushing on to North Bay. However I just cannot recommend this place any more. Why? Basically the rooms are nasty, nasty, nasty. They always have been, and after renovations they're still nasty.... More

The Valois offers shelter, a tasty restaurant and enjoyable swimming in the river. It was recommended to us by friends who have been going there for years, and it's a good place to stop for the night on a road trip.

This place was ok for someone not looking for luxury. The room we had was steps away from the water which was very nice for swimming or fishing. It certainly needs to be updated but if you're not picky then it works. We were out swimming, fishing and sightseeing most of the time so it didn't really matter that the... More

The room we had was way too pricy for what it was. It was very old and in need of serious updating! The carpet was all stained and old, it smelled old and very used. This was not our first time at this motel and the rooms were all the same - expensive, old and worn and needed some really... More

Knowing that we weren't booking the Ritz, we opted to get the most expensive room offered expecting it to be half decent. What we got was a stuffy room with dirty windows that don't open, a loud air conditioner, and filthy carpets. The owners and staff are very nice, the location amazing for access to the river, and the restaurant... More

We arrived late and the room was ready, warm (winter), comfortable, with an amazing view. The restaurant was having difficulty with their fryer so no fried food until the morrow but whose waistline needs it? Food was fresh, excellent, service quick, non-irritating and efficient. Room (double in the 60's) was clean, every bit as good as some so called 4... More
