We had a room on the first floor, view to the back of the hotel. We made use of the pool and hot tub. Our only disappointment was we were unable to sit outside due to rain. Rooms clean, staff friendly and helpful. Close to lake and a short walk to shopping and restaurants. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed here with our 'free certificate' from being a BW member and staying at 3 separate places. This hotel is very, very clean. Staff was very responsive. When we arrived at this hotel, we were given a room which had a broken sink. we contacted the front desk and were given another room immediately.
Whenever we visit North Bay, we stay here. We do find it a bit pricey when we have had to pay for the room but the rooms are spacious, very clean, and have a mini-fridge. Parking is close to the room; our requests are always honoured, the receptionists are pleasant.
we certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We always request a floor on the lower level near an entrance.

The registration was completed in a very efficient manner and a very friendly person named Stacy. The room was very comfortable and clean and provided us with a excellent opportunity to rest comfortably between two spacious travel points.

Not a bad hotel at all, furniture, carpeting, fixtures, etc., are quite new and bed was very comfortable. Little details were sometimes lacking, such as, batteries in thermostats (in both rooms) were failing, cordless phone wasn’t working (plugged into wrong outlet), internet was running about 1.3 mb/sec (usable, but should be 10x faster), they used silicone on the tub drain and didn’t remove excess (should have used plumber’s putty), no liners in waste baskets (maybe it’s environmentally better?), beer bottles outside the back exit for two days, front desk didn’t know how to retrieve messages on in-room phone when I enquired (dial 620)... nothing really horrible, but there is certainly room for improvement. I also enquired about the BW member perks (if any), and received my welcome basket (water and a sesame seed bar) as I was checking out.
They are still going through renovations and had a nice pool, but the hot tub isn’t finished yet. The restaurant, Farina & Fab, was decent, though we only had breakfast there (twice), and the lounge looked nice, but we didn’t visit while it was opened.
There are public beach access points across the street to the south or north, but the weather wasn’t cooperating, and I didn’t visit... maybe next time?

Room Tip: If you want a fridge and microwave you must get the single qeen bed room, not the king or double que...

Stayed here for 4 nights for work. All the staff I met were very friendly (except the maintenance guy). I ate at the restaurant once and had great service and meal. A bus load of soccer kids arrived on my floor and the front desk was very accommodating in moving me to a quieter floor and wing. There were lot's of stores and restaurant choices nearby. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

We stayed on May 7th going through and chose BW from past experience. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was amazing!! I had the mushroom ravioli and my husband had the spagetti and meatballs...The food was hot and very well presented. We also loved the complimentary olives, bread, and olive oil with balsamic vinegar....a very nice touch. Both staff from the restaurant and front desk were very friendly and receptive. We will stay here again!!
