“Not what you'd expect.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2009

Looking at the website for this hotel, it actually looks quite nice. It has all the makings of a good stay - a continental breakfast in the morning, a color TV, a lake view and a deck etc. etc. We booked a room for the hotel (not the suites) and paid extra for the lake front view. Our first impression of the room was really of the TV - it was smaller than a phone book. Walking out onto the first floor "deck" was almost comical- the deck was just really the wheelchair ramp going up to the registration offices.

Disappointed by the tiny TV and the "deck", we decided to check if their were any other rooms available that may be better suited for the weekend. It was not suppose to be nice weather, so we needed a room that had a little bit more to offer. The lady at the front was super helpful and very friendly, she was able to find us a room on the second floor with a larger deck. When we walked into our new room it smelt strongly of bleach and was not very accommodating for a weekend that predicted rain.

To make this clear, me and my boyfriend are not picky or ones to complain, but the room was $115 a night! It was a major disappointment and we didn't think we could take the stench of bleach all night. We went back to the front desk and asked if we could be refunded our money and the woman was very understanding and gave us our money back. We were very thankful for her help and apologized for the inconvenience we had caused.

To sum up the experience, the hotel rooms were over priced and not very comfortable. If you are traveling to Waskesiu and were in for a weekend of great weather with lots of sunshine, it probably wouldn't really matter where you stay. I'm sure the suites are nice, but the hotel rooms are nothing to brag about!
