“Autumn in the Muskoka, the beautiful countryside, a weekend at the Residence Inn equals another great anniversary!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

I wrote a review back in October of 2010 about this Inn and at that time my wife and I simply thought it was the best. The inn is outstanding and the location is top notch.
The inn, staff, rooms, location and amenities are all superb.

We spent 3 days here, scenery was beautiful from our front room windows and balcony.Suite was very modern,and well equipped, loved having own little kitchen for tea time and snacks before bed. Breakfast was included, the best we have ever seen. Pool, hot tub, and the whole hotel were spotless, and the staff were out of this world. A real awesome place to get away from it all.

Room Tip: We would suggest 3-5th floor facing the water! The coloured leaves and the dark October fall sky was...

My wife and I have stayed at this property numerous times. The location is awesome. The facility is newer and well-maintained. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms we've stayed in are spacious and well appointed. The decorating is "modern" and sleek. Buffet breakfast is always great. It's right on the wharf in gravenhurst overlooking the bay. Lovely place. We are returning again this Fall (2012).

Room Tip: Worth getting a bay-view room.

...as a Brit, I’m not very familiar with the ‘residence’ concept of this hotel, having only experienced it once before, so had a mixed expectation, and hence formed a mixed view.

Beautiful location right on the lake shore, and a large room (in the UK this would be a suite) with a very peaceful view over the spectacular lake and surrounds. As I was attending a conference I had no need of the comprehensively equipped kitchen which would obviously suit people vacationing here (except the coffee machine, of course) and thought “what a nice place to be, aren’t I lucky?”

However I was a bit disconcerted by the approach to breakfast, which one ate from cardboard plates, using plastic utensils. Nothing wrong with the food, it just seemed at odds with the rooms and the general quality of the hotel.

I’m sure this is all quite normal, but it was a new experience for me.

It's about time there was a good hotel in Gravenhurst. The Marriott is a blessing. We travelled by train (no longer possible as of the end of Sept.) and if you are travelling light you can walk from the station, which still serves busses, in about 20 minutes. The Muskoka Steamships are just a few minutes along the harbour. Just about everyone drives there and there is ample parking.

I strongly recommend a water view, available for a surcharge. I had the smallest room, a studio, and it was quite big with a fully equipped kitchen. Our friends booked a suite with fireplace and that was quite large. There is no restaurant in the hotel, but there are a few close by. We had a take-away and enjoyed it in our room and balcony. Limited supplies of food, including frozen dinners, are available in the lobby and could come in handy in an emergency. A complimentary breakfast buffet is served: it's not much but it is as promised on the Website. It offers one hot item. The staff are uniformly friendly.

Room Tip: Rooms and suites on the east side have a great view of the Muskoka Steamships. It was exciting to w...

we stayed at Residence Inn for one night only trying to get away from Toronto for the weekend and relax a bit in the country side.

This residence inn offers standard Marriott residence Inn amenities: pool, whirlpool, full breakfast, and seperat eliving area for 1 bedroom rooms.

1. Pools and whirlpool: standard north east layout, small size but good for young kids to play around. Whirlpoo isnot very big and offers a aview to parking lot + bay

2. Outdoor lounge area: There is a BBQ and a few deck sets facing parking lot right next to the inddor pool, but due to bad weather, we woudl not use it.

3. Room layout: They vary quite a bit. Our first room faced a garden view but did not have stove so I requested a room change. Also, to access bathroom, you need to go through master bedroom. The new room was better layout because bathroom can be shared rather than asking the kids go through our bedroom in order to have access to the restrooms. So watch out for the centrally located rooms. Corner layout is more conventional. (If you need kitchen oven and share bathroom, make sur ethey assign you a right room.)

4. Fireplace: is a great bonus. Especially when it is rainin out there!

5. TVs: I thought they are too small for the living room. Kind of expect a larger set.

6. Breakfast: Full break fast with saussages and full trimmings. It was quite good.

7. Staff: Standard staff and did not find them exceptional friendly or great in customer service. Throught they were just there doing their job and did not have a "welcome" feeling! Perhaps it is Thanksgiving weekend they they wanted to be home?

8: Natural scene: Theer is a great hiking path righ off the hotel surrounds the look out with benches and gazebos. Great for family with elementary school aged kids. Kids really enjoyed the walk and the scene. Typical Canadian "flat" lake landscape. Beautiful maple leave changing scene.

9. Stores: There are a few stores around the warf andrestaurants. Good morning and afternoon walk. Kids especially enjoyed the toy store that specialize in educatoinal toys.

Room Tip: Ask for the room configuration: If you only have one bedroom and need to share bathroom, ask for the...
