My wife and I stayed here for a weekend on our first trip to Kenora. The hotel lobby is very busy during the evenings when everyone comes back into town (after being on the lake all day!). Be prepared to wait a little while to check in/out. The front desk staff are very patient and friendly though which makes up... More

Our last minute reservation was handled with professional ease by Stacey. She was very friendly and excited to share further information as to activities in Kenora. Our room on the eighth floor was clean and well appointed. I would definitely be back.

This hotel has been around for a long time, but has changed names over the years. It's bit dated. If you can get a lakeside or lake view room, that's perfect! The entire exterior wall of your room is windows, and can provide you an amazing view. Staff are friendly enough. I didn't access the restaurant or lounge. There is... More

Travelled to Kenora for an overnight stay and chose a room with a view. Stayed in a room on the 8th floor. Excellent view from the room. Very nice room. Only downfall in room was air conditioner which was shut off despite 30+ Celsius. It was not overly user friendly but we managed to cool the room down eventually. Great... More

The restaurant at the top of the Clarion once known as Inn of the Woods offers some beautified views of lake of the woods. We were there on a Friday night and the special was all you can eat ribs for $19.95. Saturday it was going to be prime rib for $19.95. The ribs came with fries and coleslaw. Three... More

We were staying at the Clarion while in Kenora for a regatta. The room was very comfortable. The view from the restaurant on the top floor was incredible. The breakfast menu was excellent and very, very reasonable. The staff at the front desk and the restaurant were excellent. We really enjoyed our visit.

I wrote a review about this hotel late last year. Stayed here a couple more times for work since, and the refurbishment effort is quite visible. The room I stayed in his past week was totally modern and comparable to business hotels in big cities, with the added bonus of the stunningly beautiful view of Lake of the Woods (was... More

When we arrived in our room on August 5th 2016, we noticed that the washroom had not been cleaned- there was used shaving cream in the shower, used tampon wrappers and tissues in the garbage and no toilet paper on the toilet paper roll.
