This hotel offers a very unique experience. The artwork throughout the hotel leaves you seeing something new to see every time you walk down the halls. Our room was the Games Room King Premier. It was a nice size with a wonderful bathroom with soaker tub and large multiple head shower. It would not have been our first choice for rooms but it was the only King available upon booking. It was more of a fun room not a warm cozy feeling!! We would definitely stay again. In addition the restaurant attached is fantastic! All of the staff were friendly and welcoming! I did let the front office know on check out that there was a rattle in the room when the air conditioning kicked on that was rather annoying during the night. Hopefully they will look into it so that others can have a less restful sleep. If not for this, I would have given a 5 star.

We stayed on a Thursday night in the Nantucket Premiere Suite. The room was huge and very clean but the upstairs had an odd smell. My husband and son both said it smelled like someone had smoked a joint up there before us, lol. We opened the windows and all was good but we found the street noise to be a little loud with the windows open and there’s an intersection with a traffic light there as well. Also, in the suite next to us the people partied until 5:30am. Needless to say, a very noisy stay here. One good thing, the food in the restaurant was amazing and the service was great.

I gave this hotel a 5* review because it’s a very uniquely themed hotel that you will enjoy. The common Areas and rooms all have a unique theme that you won’t find in other hotels. The service and attitude from their staff is great. The suites are very large and roomy. There are a couple of negatives. If you are a light sleeper, you will be woken up when the auto-closing doors of the neighbouring suites close - they are noisy. You’ll hear other guests when they are in the hallways , don’t know why since the walls and the doors of the room are very solid. But if u r in the Chatham area like we were, and looking for a fun place to stay, you should give retro suites a try.

The Cowboy Room at the Retro Suites was most excellent! Mighty fine service by all staff. Exquisitely decked out in RETRO, this Ontario gem offers a unique experience. Included in our booking was access to the Gym next door. Used it both mornings. You need at least 2 nights to truly enjoy this place. Great food & service at 'The Cork' Restaurant, on site. We're definitely returning.

Absolutely loved our getaway in November. Covid preventions were in place and we felt very safe. Food was AMAZING at their restaurant. We stayed in the sports room and, while it was incredibly cool and had curated sports memorabilia, I think next time I would like to try a more romantic spot.
