“Great location and all the amenities you expect with a Residence Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Stayed one night for business and couldn't have been more pleased. I have frequently stayed at other Residence Inn locations and this one was of course very similar, but the added bonus here is the balconies, it appeared to me that every unit had one. So nice when you take into account this scenic location. I love Residence Inn properties because of the kitchen and open layout, using it for business and family travel. Would definitely recommend this particular hotel given it's lake-side location.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front and back will have water views.

My husband and I stayed here for the long weekend in May. The price is generally fair but for the long weekend a little over priced. We paid to have a "lake view" room but the balcony doesn't really look onto the lake. It looks out towards the wharf (a small bay) where the restaurants are. However, the room was big, clean and well equipped. The kitchenette was an advantage as well. It's located on the Muskoka Wharf which is very convenient when you want to grab a bite to eat or just talk a walk. Most of the staff was friendly and the complimentary breakfast had a good variety to choose from.

My wife and I have visited this premium Residence Inn overlooking Lake Muskoka a few times now for short stays of a night or two by ourselves or with our older kids and we've never been disappointed. We most recently stayed in a very nice king suite with a full kitchen, fireplace, and balcony with Muskoka chairs and a nice view of the lake. The staff are all pleasant and we appreciated them upgrading us to a better lake view as part of my Platinum status and our 30th anniversary celebration tour. There are numerous casual restaurants on the wharf boardwalk right beside the hotel, many which we have tried and enjoyed, as well as the Muskoka boat tours which start in June. And of course you also get the free RI hot breakfast buffet.

Stayed two nights in a king suite with lake view. Room and amenities are exactly as described in the website. Good location right on the lake with nice restaurants nearby. Nothing exceptional about the breakfast, staff were courteous and friendly. Mattress and pillows are not in par with the rest of the furnishing though. Excellent place for a few days of quite getaway.

Room Tip: If opting for lake view room, try to get the ones tn the middle of the building; which gives a bette...

I stayed in a suite that a friend of ours owns, and it was simply incredible! Such a massive suite! 2 huge bedrooms with king size beds and 2 master baths. Full kitchen including a dishwasher and even a corkscrew (something everyone needs but always leaves at home). Very clean and quiet. We had our own balcony, and 2 deck chairs, although it was too cool outside to really enjoy them.
To top off the perfect suite, my boyfriend took me out by the water and we enjoyed the sunset, where surprise surprise, he proposed!! Could not have been more wonderful. Thank to all the lovely staff and we will hopefully be back again, maybe for an anniversary!!

Room Tip: We had the best suite in the house, but I bet they all are lovely.

Stayed at this hotel. The hotel is clean, rooms are well decorated and neat, the view was nice but the location isn't the best. It is far from downtown, couldn't go for a walk. Breakfast was usual but fare
Will consider other options if going to Muskoka.

When we checked in we were told that we had been upgraded to a suite with a water view and a great deck overlooking the harbor and steamships. The staff in the hotel were very competent and friendly. As others have said, the breakfast was just OK, and it was quite crowded. This is definitely the place to stay in Gravenhurst. We were in the early part of the season so can't say what happens when the crowds arrive. We had a great stay and would definitely return.

There is a boardwalk that extends around the wharf that is great for walking. A few restaurants on the route. We ate at the Boston Pizza which has an extensive menu. The Pizza was good but not outstanding. If you are looking for a Grocery Store, Terry's Independent Grocery was a good find for us.

Room Tip: There are rooms with a view of the Wharf and Lake Muskoka and rooms without those views and they are...
