“Excellent value - Motel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Bedroom is divided off from living/eating/kitchen area. Has Queen size bed and there is a pull out couch in living area. So very comfortable and bathroom really nice. The Desk staff/owner was so very kind and helpful. Have stayed there several times.

Room Tip: All rooms really nice - even have a pet friendly room

Paid $79 and got exactly what I was hoping for: a no frills room with free continental breakfast in the morning. Breakfast consisted of muffins, bananas, orange juice (not from concentrate!), milk, 3 cereals, bagels, toast. Needs a few more fruits like apples and oranges or something.

Location is right on Lakeview so it's a nice spot with parks near and some shopping, etc.

What a pleasant surprise to find a recently renovated room for a great price. Colour schemes are very modern and appealing. The bed was comfortable. The room was very clean. Sure there were a couple of issues for an older building that has been renovated, such as a slant to the bathroom floor and insufficient heat from the baseboards. The manager supplied a space heater which solved the problem on a very cold night. Again, for the price, not huge issues. Breakfast was basic, but fresh and with a Keurig machine with a decent selection of coffees.
I would definitely recommend. I gave it an "excellent" rating simply because it was obvious an effort has been made with the renovations and cleanliness to make its clients comfortable. For the price, this is a motel I would feel comfortable returning to.

Stayed there on one saturday night with 5 guys.
Don't let the outside appearance fool you, as it is pretty rough.

Comfortable queen size beds.
Room is small but cozy, there were two nice recliner type chairs in front of the TV with a small coffee table so you could relax and watch TV.
Clean and warm rooms.
Bathroom was standard but clean.

Complimentary breakfast was standard, good coffee but not a lot of variety. Juice, fruits, yogourts, bagels and cereals. Good enough to start the day!

At that price, it's a great and simple stay. Glad I followed the positive reviews I found everywhere.

We booked this motel based on the reviews. During a previous visit, we stayed at a motel down the road- which was fine, but decided to try the Lincoln Inn during this trip. The continental breakfast was a small bonus. While not usually a fan of motels, we were pleasantly suprised at the bright colours, decor and newer furnishings our room had to offer. Small fridge, microwave, coffee maker. Comfortable mattress, clean bright bathroom, flat screen TV with some free movie stations. We did not take advantage of the free long distance calling apparently offered, but WiFi signal was strong. Staff was pleasant. Would recommend if you don't require a pool or gym area during your stay. Priced well... I have stayed in many hotels that don't measure up to this property.

Room Tip: Was offered a room in the back to help with traffic noise. Overall, the noise was not an issue.

Stopped by on our way from Saulte St. Marie and plunked ourselves for two nights (10/27-10/28).
Hosts/owners were warm, accommodating and helpful. We had a very comfortable stay. Would recommend folks who are passing through this city to stay here. Continental breakfast comes included in the room tariff.

Room Tip: RM # 2 & 3 are close to the office and small area where they serve continental breakfast.

Drove from Sault Ste. Marie to North Bay, Got into the Lincoln Inn late.

We were greeted by the hotel staff with a smile.

Room was very clean, area was quiet, got a good nights sleep.

Could be a slight improvement with their morning breakfast choices..

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the Inn are away from the main road and quieter
