“Pleasant and warm hospitality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Stayed June 6th for golf tournament for Easter Seals on the 7th. The rooms were spacious and clean. The furnitur was somewhat outdated but clean neverless. The front desk was very pleasant and responded to a number of requests promptly. Attended the dinner buffet function after the tournament the food was excellent with ample quantities. Servers were responsive and quick to clear tables. Overall a very good experience and I would return again. The hotel/conference centre is close to the highway and only minutes from the city.

We had our wedding here in May of 2013. We had 160 people of which many stayed at the clarion.

The staff and management are awesome! They were so easy to work with and accommodating. We had many comments from guests on how pleased they were with the service.

Food was amazing! Very good and hot! Prime rib is a must! Drinks were great too! Everyone had enough to drink :)

Rooms were clean, big and comfy! Fireplace is awesome too!

We will stay here again anytime!

I stayed 5 days at Pinewood Park and enjoyed my time there. The hotel is located on the edge of North Bay so it is a bit of a drive into town. Check-in was efficient and staff were very friendly and helpful. The executive room on the 3rd floor was large and very clean with a comfortable king size bed. The food in the restaurant was very good. As others mentioned, the hotel is quite old and has a dated decor but otherwise very nice. I recommend it assuming you do not need quick access to downtown North Bay. All of the staff were very pleasant and accomodating.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor as the 1st floor is partially below grade.

I spent 5 days at the Clarion Resort, the staff was excellent at the front desk, very accommadating, the hotel staff(cleaning) was above and beyond the call of duty. The hotel restaurant food was very good, staff was pleasant, nice bar. Have a golf course on site, Hotel rooms are very clean and very nice rooms, espcially the suites.

Stayed here during the chrismas holidays and it was fairly busy but still quiet, we got a discount on the room. The service was good and the room was clean. Very basic hotel, decor was out dated but functional. The breakfast that was included was very basic. Powdered eggs, bacon, toast/bagel, ceral etc. Their was an option of ordering off a menu but we were in a hurry. Would stay there again if the price was discounted.

As mentionned before, the hotel does not have any elevators, only ramps. Not a big deal for me but a point to note if you require one.

NorthernOntario32,
Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. As you point out we do not have elevators on property but if there are any mobility issues we will ensure to book your reservation on the main floor for convenience.
All the best and until your next stay, stay safe.

My husband and Istayed at the Clarion in March for the Fire Chiefs Convention. The rooms were large and clean. The King size bed was comfortable. They are required to bring in alot of extra staff during this 4 day convention to accomodate the meal preparation etc... Its our third attendance at this function and the Clarion does an amazing job. The food was fantastic. Keep up the good work and hope to see you next year.
P.S. Please advise me of the brand of the quilted blanket you put between the sheets. It is very comfortable and I would like to buy one.

Holly F,
Thank you so much for having taken the time to review our hotel. The Fire Marshall's are one of our special functions that hotel has had the pleasure hosting for the past 15 years. If you could give me a call regarding the blanket brand, I'd be more than happy to give it to you.
Thank you and looking forward to seeing you next year.

Adequate.......
Comfortable beds, clean room, dated decor, older television, rugs in halls need a good steam cleaning to freshen things (the air) up. People should know there are ramps, and no elevators for reaching the 2nd and 3rd floors.
Hot tub was out of service, so the outdoor heated pool was a welcome treat, and the working train display is really well done. The sauna needs a handle on the inside for opening and closing the door properly.
Attention to details are required for this facility to achieve its potential....
Staff friendly and helpful.
