Old and tired, with Windows that don't lock,decades old carpet, bathroom so small the vanity was in the bedroom, no closet,nightstand or clock. And beside the highway where trucks climb a hill at night. Worst part it was $109. Worth about $50. Great view of Ottawa river though. We were in room 36 so other rooms might be better but...

We travel between North Bay and Renfrew County on a pretty regular basis. If you know that stretch of highway, you know that there aren't very many places to stop and have a meal so a person can't really be too picky. We have stopped at Valois' Restaurant in the past and every time we leave we always say "never...

To be honest, yes the rooms were dated and many things could be done to improve the place. However the bed was comfortable. I found the room clean and it had a decent view. It does however close relatively early in the evening. But as a point where we had to stop it was acceptable.

Really enjoyed the staff and the food. I had the fish and chips, and my companion had the burger. The food was as good as any roadside restaurant. Totally satisfied. The view is absolutely stunning. The best of Canadian wilderness. I would definitely make this a regular stop on my visits to Algonquin.

Like the others are saying...First when we walked in..stink of a moldy, old house. Says Wi-Fi was free. Couldn't even get it at all:( Called the front desk..no answer..no return call. Really old sliding windows that barely opened. I had to use some muscle. Showers...the shower wall looked like it was about to cave in and if someone else used...

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the Valois. Maybe it was the cute British girl pouring coffee. Perhaps it was the clunky 90's TVs. It could have been the great perch above the river. The retro 70's era sign? The price was more the reasonable... It just captures everything you would ever want from a small town...

We stayed there for 2 nights, and will never go back. After the first night we looked elsewhere but everything in the area was booked. We were told when we booked the room that there were only 2 rooms left for the weekend we had booked. Well the friday night the parking lot was empty and the Saturday night there...

My husband and myself were quoted 109$ for 1 nights stay with a view of the beautiful Ottawa River. As we pulled up to our room #61 we were just in awe of the view... And then we opened the door to our room... We did not have high expectations at all.. We were expecting an out dated room with...

Valois is always a fine place to stay - simple but clean and comfortable rooms. Beautiful view of the Ottawa River. Friendly staff. And the restaurant is enjoyable too with hearty meals overlooking the River.
