I am writing my review while I am sitting on the bed at the Lakeview inn and suites in Brandon Manitoba. I am here to accompany my husband who is here for buisness (8 days stay).
The pros: Staff fantastic, the room very clean, no bed bugs ( I did my strict inspection), no mold smell anywhere in the hotel, nice breakfast( continental plus, no meat but that's fine), Microwave, coffemaker and mini fridge in the bedroom. A few restaurant at a walking distance. They have some suite, meant for extended stay ( but you will not be able to cook meals there, they don't have a kitchennette, no stove or reg size fridge). They have a meeting room available, not very busy, so it's nice when you have to meet clients or doing some buisness in the area. The beds are comfortable enough.
The cons: Far from everything (need a car), no buses in this area, the fitness room (it's the size of a small walk-inn closet, 3 machines, stepps, and treadmill, if you are bigger then 125 pounds you will not even fit in the room, it's that crowded), the pool, very small, I have my doubt on the chemicals being done every day (troubled water, and no smell of chlorine at all), I went everyday for my laps . Old tv's and DVD players in the bedroom, it's blurry most of the time, would be time to change them. The hairdryer in the bathroom almost catch on fire while I was using it, sparkles where coming out of the back and the front of it , I unpluged it immediatly (I have very long hair, so I was a bit afraid). I told them, and they gave me another one right away . The pillows are very old , and not very comfortable. The coffe-maker and the fridge and just next to the bed so you can hear it all night long, but you get use to it after the third night.
I would recommand it to anyone who is just looking for a place to sleep (temporay stay), very clean, very professional staff, respectful, trusthworthy, (I left my jewellry and my electronic devices in the room everyday and I left with everything). If I have to come back, I would without any hesitation.
