Stayed on a saturday night with a pet. Had a lake view room and I would highly recommend booking a room on the lake side. Peak season so the rate was what is to be expected, but the view was worth every dollar. The hotel is definitely dated and has a musty smell but you forget about that when looking... More

Spent one night at this hotel. Overall, the room, furniture and hallways were a bit dated, but everything was perfectly clean. We booked a lake view room, and absolutely loved having a drink in our room overlooking the activity on the lake on a beautiful night. We were traveling with our dog and the hotel was pet friendly. The hotel... More

This hotel is a bit dated, and nothing special in terms of overall quality for the price. However, it's worth paying extra for the water view -- from the higher floors (we were on the 7th) the vista is stunning.

The room was fairly basic, nothing too exciting. It was clean and comfortable. I had been driving for 17 hours when we finally reached kenora and decided to stay the night.

This hotel newly renovated is a show stopper, with the rooms over looking the lake how can it not be great. The elevators are a bit small but they do the trick. The staff were attentive to our needs and the parking area was being worked on but was ok for the night.

The location was great and the hotel was empty, but we still got stuck with a room without a view! The room was clean and our overall experience was fine. Breakfast was good and the view as great! Don't pay more than a$100 in the off season.
