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

Lovely hotel, very clean. We had a lake view room on the seventh floor and the scenery was spectacular! Excellent restaurant, delicious food and very friendly staff. The hotel staff was also very friendly and helpful with whatever we needed, especially when our room key kept malfunctioning for some reason. We absolutely loved our stay at this hotel and will...

We stayed here several years ago and weren't really impressed. However, they are under new management and things have improved. We had a single king bed room on the 8th floor and it was perfect. Room has been updated and everything was just right. They have new docks on the lake so our boat was handy and protected. Dining room... More

Had a good experience here - we were travelling 'as we go' so didn't have any reservations and landed where we landed. Happy with our experience here - good clean room, enjoyed the use of the rec centre across the street, and great views. Parking was ok, our two motorcycles though not covered were safe.
