“Very affordable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

Stayed in new residence suite (1 year old), while working at Norceca Beach Volleyball event -3 nights. Clean, comfortable double bed (my roommate had other room). Bathroom clean, towels changed daily and shower. We had a kitchenette and TVs in both rooms. Breakfast: cereals, bagels, eggs, cold cuts, juice and coffee. There were also snacks provided (granola bars, apples) that we could take to beach. Coffee not the greatest, I'd recommend stopping by Tim's. Prices are $75.00 a night and group rates even better.

Stayed July 2014, traveled solo

A friend and I booked a double room for two nights during convocation. Aside from the fact that the outlets and temperature settings had to be reset, we loved staying there! The location was perfect, the suite was clean and bright, and breakfast was good ;) (hooray for bagels and tons of juice!)

Hello,

Thank you for the lovely feedback in regards to your recent stay. I am happy to hear you noted the brightness and cleanliness of our facilities. The staff work very hard to maintain the high standard of cleanliness that each of our guests experience.

The breakfast is a pleasant experience for a lot of our guests, as some of them are not aware it is included with their stay. Please come and visit us again to enjoy some more bagels and juice :)

We were up in North Bay this past weekend looking for two nights accommodations. The residence was a perfect fit for us. Is it the Hilton? Nope. Is it everything you need? Yep! We had a two-room suite which was great so the children had their own place. The hotel isn't busy so there was no wait for the elevator and there wasn't excessive noise from other travellers.

Having a small kitchen was handy for us to store snacks/meals for our family. The complimentary breakfast was a nice surprise.

Have to give compliments for the great customer service. On our first morning there, we were informed the coffee maker was broken (nooooooooo!) but the staff working there was so kind, apologetic for the inconvenience and even offered to give me a few dollars to run to Tim Horton's for coffee (he was the only staff working so unable to run out and grab it for me...though I really think he might have if he could have).

If you're looking for a comfortable place to stay for a great price, this is the place to stay. It's not fancy but functional and for the price, provides great value!

The hotel is normaly a residence, with 2 rooms per unit. Low price, reasonnable comfort, but at the same time a general sense that this is not their main business: for instance, toasters don't quite work, it is not obvious how to find your way in the breakfast area. Still, for 70$, not a bad deal, but if it was pricier, it would be too much.

Our whole family stayed at the Residence and Conference was really excellent. The room was big and spacious, would recommend to family and friends to stay over here. There is also kitchen and living room that has TV.

We stayed at the residence & conference centre in North Bay in July for one night. We had our whole family which included seven of us, with two young children. We were able to get a town house which had seven bedrooms with twin beds in each , so it worked out great. We also had a fridge, stove in it. Free parking and it was great for that one night stay as the motels and hotels in North Bay and Sturgeon FAlls were all booked up at that time frame. MacDonalds was not far from there for breakfast the next morning but they did supply free breakfast at the residence if you wish. Very nice stay. The rooms were clean but for some who like very very modern place you will not have as you must remember it was students living in there and you can tell that some of them were pretty rough with the place which is so disturbing. It's too bad that some of these grown up students should demolish a place as such. Otherwise it was like we were back in residence again hahaha.
