We stayed for one night on the way to Winnipeg. Staff was wonderful and responsive. No breakfast included but guests get a discount, and Choice Hotels Privileges members get 15% off the restaurant tab. It was a beautiful view from the top of the hotel. Some things are a little worn but after a recent change in ownership, renovations have... More

Nice view of the lake from the restaurant during daylight hours. At night the windows just reflect back on the interior. Not recommended for dining other than the view. The wine and beer choices are quite limited and low on quality. The room is clean and comfortable. A good spot to spend a night when stopping in the area. Not... More

My husband and I stayed for a night. Quirky hotel, but great water view, good location for walking around downtown Kenora and exploring restaurants. The room was clean, bed comfortable and we had no complaints. We had never stayed in a round hotel before. We would stay there again.

I've always wanted to stay here. It would have been great if I could have had a lake view but I just walked up and had to take what was left. The room was nice and clean. The bed was comfy. I didn't eat here because I only stayed one night. Compared to other hotels I've stayed at in the... More

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
