“Always supporting Operation Red Nose”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

In 2002, Thompson Operation Red Nose was looking for a place to host us for the Christmas season. We approached the manager of the then Country Inn and Suites. Without hesitation they said yes to givin us a space to use. That year was the start of what has become a long lasting relationship, which has continued with the Lakeview Inn and Suites. The 1st few years we were given a suite to use and at their own cost, had a new phone line istalled for us. After a couple years they couldn't provide us with the suite as it was rented out long term, so the staff asked us if we would like to use the front area, where they provide the free breakfasts. We said yes. After a few nights, our Red Nose volunteers and the hotel staff decided that we would really like to be out front. It gave us greater exposure to the hotel guests, allowed us access to a wheelchair accessible washroon...allowing us to increase our volunteers, and we didn't have to worry about bothering our neighbours with any noise we might be making.
With the increase in call volume, we needed to have 2 more phone lines installed, which Lakeview Inn helped us with.
Having us out front also makes it easier for the front desk staff to promote our services, as the guests always ask who we are and what we are doing.
This year we are celebrating being 'at home' at the Lakeview Inn and suites for 11years. Our volunteers know that the Lakeview Inn and Suites is the home for Thompson Operation Red Nose and they know where to come and volunteer a night of driving or answering phones and dispatching.
If we did not have our home, it woudl be an absolute struggle every year to find a place. This allows us to use our resources in other ways, like promoting the program and encouraging people not to drink and drive.
THANK-YOU to Lakeview Inn and Suites for your continued support!!!!

We stayed in a double suite with our two small boys. We were treated well and enjoyed our stay. The staff was pleasant to deal with. However, the room felt a little dated, and the sliding patio door at the front did not slide smoothly.

Dear Dennis and Audrey,

Thank you for your recent comment regarding the patio doors that were not working for your stay here. We are in the process of changing out our patio doors due to the weather conditions here in the north. We hope you enjoyed your stay and will come back to visit us again real soon!

Sincerely,
Michelle

My Husband and I have stayed twice at the Lakeview Inn and have had the best experience with the Front Desk Staff, the cleanliness, location and amenities of the property. Both stays Shelly checked us in and was very welcoming and informational as to the room and property and Donna checked us out on both occasions and was helpful, knowledgable, kind and made you feel right at home, (she even recognized my voice when calling to make the reservation for the second stay)! I had only met her once) she clearly really listens to her guests!! Awesome service, A+ for cleanliness and awesome room rates for both single rooms or suite.I WOULD RECOMMEND LAKEVIEW INN & SUITES TO ALL MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS

I really enjoyed the genuine customer service while staying at the property. All of the staff were helpful and enthusiastic. I needed to get some printing done prior to a meeting and both Cheryl in Guest Services and Michelle, the GM, went out of there way to help me get the materials printed on site.

The hotel is well looked after and the rooms were very clean.

This is my 2nd trip to Thompson for business in the last 2 months... and this is my 2nd stay at Lakeview Inn & Suites, Thompson MB... I am writing this review to recommend business people/vacationers to consider this hotel as your 1st choice for a place to stay....

The exterior is presentable... the entrance/reception area is very clean/"homey" . Shelley (reception) was very nice to deal with... the rooms are very clean.... The King bed is so comfortable... I arrived 8pm to the hotel... I relaxed on the bed and started watching TV; with the intention that I would go to a restaurant in 1hr and grab dinner... The next thing I knew is that I woke up 5am the next morning!! The combination of the bed and the bedding... is the culprit!
Breakfast is also included...
For the business people staying here... they have fax capabilities.. Michelle entered the faxes for me and then waited to make sure that the confirmation beep was heard... ensuring successful transmission. The fax machine seemed to be a older model... and I was told that they are looking into getting another current model... other than that... my fax' went through...

The staff are very courteous and really make you feel welcome...

I stay at many hotels in Canada..each month for business and I always stay at the same hotels... for familiarity and comfortability.... Lakeview Inn & Suites (Thompson MB) is my hotel for Thompson.
