Good basic motel close to downtown North Bay, but not a very attractive location. Friendly and helpful staff.

I travel with friends and family often, and stay at many hotels . This hotel by far offered best prices. The rooms are spacious, beds are really confy, comes with LCD TV, microwave and fridge. Hotel was really clean, quite and homely. Staff was really helpful and knew a lot about the town. They were always available to guide us. Hotel is really conveniently located, and was close to many attractions. All for unbelievably small cost. I will definitely stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We were attending a funeral in Powassan and decided to stay in North Bay for the visit. The room we were in had been newly updated, so the pictures they have uploaded are not an accurate representation. The bed was as nice as what we've had in 4 star Hilton's in the past. The room was very clean and the tv's was updated to a decent size flat screen. For the price we paid it was more than sufficient..

The continental breakfast in the morning was included in the price of our stay and was extremely basic but we didn't mind since we're not huge breakfast eaters anyways. We had no problems with the staff and was always greeted with a smile, and the place was basically empty while we were there so we had no issues with noise or anything.

At the end of the day its a very basic place.. if you're expecting something fancy you wont find it here, but we have absolutely nothing to complain about.. the room more than served its purpose for our stay. I probably would not stay here again, simply because the next time I'm in North Bay it wont be for the same occasion but I would recommend it for people looking for a simple stay for a good price.

One perk is its close to the water.

While on a move across the country we came across this Motel and found the staff friendly and kind. The room was comfortable and although the free breakfast was certainly not the best we've come across it did provide the basics. For it's value and cleanliness, we would recommend it.
