Recently stayed there for a short, one night stay. I had already stayed at the Holiday Inn Express before and knew it was good and modern, but pricey! So I decided to look around. I found this place thanks to reviews online and decided to book it. I love the fact that you can rent your own little cabin... It feels like your very own apartment or cottage, complete with little porch, kitchen with basic necessities (including a toaster, utensils, a couple pots, a couple dish rags and dish soap...), kitchen table, armoire, two mini fridges, TV, chaise, and bed. No tub but that didn't bother me any. There was even a trampoline outside our cabin, I was almost tempted to try it out. Seeing as it's a private cabin, it smelled slightly "enclosed" but they had a scent plug-in as a remedy to that. Minor issue, summers get damp and hot and it's hard to prevent in an enclosed space like that. I would just remove the carpet to help with that issue. Apart from being a bit dated and needing a bit of an aesthetic makeover (pink and purple walls, red and green carpet, floral bedspread, kitchen table was kind of scratched up) it was just what I expected and needed and for a great price. The essential was there and that's what's important (Clean place to spend the night, rest my head, get cleaned up... Free wifi, black-out curtains and nicely folded face cloths to boot). It was a very hot humid day, and I was very relieved that the air conditioning was on when I got in the cabin. As for at the front desk, I was greeted warmly. I was tired and not thinking, I parked far from my cabin. The lovely woman that was there to greet me at the front desk came outside and told me I could park right next to my cabin. How convenient! Also, there was no hair dryer in the room (another minor flaw) but I called (early, around 6:15 am) to get one and she came right to my door with one. The bed wasn't uncomfortable but I think I'm used to softer. Everyone has their personal preference as far as mattresses go so take that with a big grain of salt! You can't please everyone when it comes to mattresses. To sum it up, if I need to spend another night in North Bay, I would more than likely stay there again and I will recommend this place to others.
