“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

We were for three days on a suite, that was upgraded to a King suite, with new mattress.
The room (which was big) was very clean, as well as the kitchen.

Staff is very friendly.

Great value for your money.

Uncomfortable visit. The reception area is dirty, beaten up and cluttered. Set a bad tone for the visit. Suite was large and the visit was fine, but this is basically and old 60s style motel that is in the process of being renovated with new linoleum and furniture. Some problems with wireless, but owner helped get things set up again quickly. Big turn-off -- the pillow sham on the bed reaked of underarm odor, and clearly hadn't been cleaned since some gentleman tucked it in his armpit. Positive -- friendly owners, family-owned business. You want them to succeed. That said, I would not go back.

The reception is exemplary. Upon our arrival, we offered us a suite to the same price as the economic room. The room is clean(appropriate), spacious with a cosy and comfortable bed. There is a kitchen area with all the ustensis and the basis dishes. An only drawback, there should be two chairs and a table to have no bent back. In brief, I recommend this etablishment.

After having been disappointed with our hotels on previous visits to North Bay, we decided to give Lakeshore Suites a try.
Knowing we were visiting North Bay on the August long weekend (during Summer in the Park festival) I booked our suite almost 4 months in advance and had no problem getting a room. Having read other traveler reviews, I was impressed with the value this hotel seemed to offer for the price.
I have to say I almost didn't believe the rate I got online ($99/night) considering it was the August long weekend and that generally suite style hotels are somewhat more expensive. The price also made me a bit wary, almost too good to be true.
We arrived early on the day of our check in (2 hours before official check in) but had no problem getting into our room early. The front desk manager (who I believe is the owner) was very personable and friendly.
No modern key card FOB's at this hotel, you actually get an old fashioned key!!
My initial impression upon entering the room was how big and clean the suite was. Nice size living room type space, full kitchen (minus a stove obviously), 1 bedroom and decent size bathroom. A queen Murphy bed was great to have as this would be my daughters bed. Additional amenities included a fairly decent size LCD TV along with free WiFi.
We love staying at Suite style hotels when we travel with our daughter as it gives us some extra space once she's in bed and having a kitchen to use allows you to bring your own food to use for breakfast etcetera.
In terms of décor, this hotel could use some serious updating.... I almost felt I was in a time warp back to 1988, and the furniture itself needs to be updated as well. The rug although clean, certainly needed replacing as well. The Queen bed wasn't great, extremely hard mattress definitely didn't do my back any good. There was also a gas fireplace in the corner of the suite which we obviously didn't use (summer trip).
Keeping with the rest of the suite, the bathroom as well was a time warp back to my childhood, but was good size and very clean.
Temperature control was a bit difficult as the AC unit was one of those old school window installed type units meaning it was either on or off (no specific temperature setting). Thankfully it wasn't crazy hot so we actually had the AC off most of the time.
The hotel is in a great location, right across the street from Lake Nipissing which was one of the key reasons we selected this hotel (easy access to a gorgeous lake). Lots of amenities nearby including restaurants, shopping etcetera.
Overall I'm happy with our stay at Lakeshore Suites; great value for the money, clean rooms, friendly and courteous staff, excellent location and some decent perks (free Wifi). I'll be interested to see if any money is spent by the owners to upgrade the hotel in the near future. I would recommend this hotel to any families looking for a great value hotel in North Bay.

Spent a night in one of the honeymoon suites with my wife just for a night out. Room was clean and very nice. Jacuzzi tub was great and the double headed shower was awesome. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed in the Chalet at the Lakeshore Suites Plus for 2 nights. Checked in at the Lakeshore Suites where the reception was and drove to our room at a the separate motel (Lakeshore Suites Plus) just a short drive away...a bit odd but no big deal Asked for extra towels which were graciously given upon arrival. Was pleased with the accommodations except for the king size bed which had a hard, older spring mattress which was not very comfortable. Very roomy and bright. The place is not pristine, there are a few cracks in the ceiling and some paint missing from the walls in a few places, but honestly this did not detract from our stay. Loved the privacy of this room as it is separate from the main building. Heated by 2 gas fireplaces which added a cozy ambiance to the room. Double Jacuzzi tub in the bedroom was great, large enough for 2 people comfortably. Nice bathroom with walk in shower. Had hoped for higher end bathroom amenities as one might expect with a $200/night room. Kitchenette was nice and very handy with a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker, however the coffee provided was awful. Bought Tim Horton's and heated it up in the morning. Upon checking the smoke detector I found that it had no battery in it. Make what you will of that.
Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Chalet at the Lakeshore Suites Plus even though it was a bit pricey at $189.99 + taxes per night. A nice winter getaway.

Room Tip: Chalet at Lakeshore Suites Plus offers fantastic privacy away from other guests.
