“Pleasant Peterborough stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

We were at a lacrosse tournament and decided, last minute, to stay overnight. The front desk was very welcoming and attentive. The room had new carpet and a decent bed. The breakfast was more substantial and tasty than we expected. I'd go back.

We had the occasion to stay at the Otonabee Inn recently and felt compelled to share our experience. The hotel is very centrally located, easy to find, and has loads of parking. Although the staff were so friendly and accomodating upon our arrival, we weren't really expecting more than a "standard" hotel room. We were pleased to find clean and spacious rooms, with a little treasure we weren't expecting at all! A "back door" led out to a little patio with a wee table and a couple of chairs, overlooking a tiered lawn with a gazebo and a (very) lazy river. The breakfast room had it's own patio off the back of the hotel as well, which was a fabulous place to enjoy the fresh, complimentary breakfast - a rare treat, as it was much more substantial that we had ever thought it would be - especially in Ontario, where complimentary breakfasts are not usually offered. We have visited the Peterborough Zoo on a previous occasion with our grandchildren, but the next time we come, we will come back to the Otonabee with our grandchildren...and while they will love the pool and the hot-tub, we will savour the relaxing ambiance, both on the grounds and the pool-side patio. Thank you for a most enjoyable stay!!

Room Tip: Make sure you request a ground floor room with a patio!

A wedding brought us to Peterborough in early July. The Trip Advisor reviews were very helpful, and we were very pleased with this hotel. As noted in previous reviews, the Staff, both day and night, were friendly and exceedingly helpful. The room was clean and comfortable, and the location was excellent, far enough away from the downtown yet close enought to reach everything in several minutes. We intend to visit again.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the river.

First of all - this is a great little city and absolutely everyone should make it a point to vacation here and tour even a small section of the Trent Canal System....Peterborough is a wonderful place to do it and cruise the world's highest Hydraulic Lift Lock #21.....Canada is so fortunate to have this engineering marvel so assessible...the entire Trent Severn Waterway to enjoy - Lock 21 is an amazing feat and fun for everyone watching it from land or on a boat tour....a wonderful adventure at minimum costs.

The hotel we chose is A-1. We understand it is a family owned and operated Best Western - rooms are spacious and spotless (we loved having a sterilized and bagged remote control for our TV) and very friendly - the grounds are amazing - Meade Creek lazily runs behind the well manicured grounds and into the Otonabee River - two covered gazebos, picnic tables, and a boat launch are part of the charm...staff friendly and front desk personnel are extremely helpful. It's the best place to stay in Peterborough in our opinion! This town should be on your vacation list!

Room Tip: We decided to upgrade to an executive room - it was HUGE - King bed, large bathroom with jacuzzi tub...

This is a lovely hotel in beautiful grounds. The room was very clean and comfortable, lots of pillows provided too! The complimentary breakfast was excellent, a good selection.
We were visiting for a concert at the Little Lake Music Festival, the hotel is a distance from Del Crary Park where the concerts take place. We weren't travelling by car so it took about 25 minutes to walk.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor, classed as executive rooms.

I was a little leery about staying at another Best Western as we've had a very bad experience in the past. But I was thrilled when I went to check in and the gentleman at the desk was very helpful, polite, and just plain happy. Our room was very clean and had a beautiful view of the river. I loved that in the morning I could walk out onto our own deck and sit and drink my coffee and just relax. By the time we were packed up and ready to leave I was wishing we could stay for just a little longer. Thank you to the Best Western Plus Otonabee Inn for restoring my faith in the Best Western chain.

Great hotel--great staff-good food. Nice grounds and lake at back of hotel-near shopping mall and restaurants. Clean pool area. Nice outside deck off dining room to sit and relax overlooking the lake. Rooms are updated and modern. Lots of room in bathroom. Will diffently go back and maybe for just a weekend away and not just for business
