I want to start by saying this is a very deceiving place...for the better! My boyfriend and I were coming up to North Bay from Burlington from sat afternoon (oct 5) until sun morning (oct 6)and had never been to North Bay before. We looked online for hotels then ended up booking a room at Lakeshore Suites (not to be confused with Lakeshore Suites PLUS which is a bit up the street) through Priceline.ca for $87 USD per night ($89 plus tax CAD) When we arrived the place was easy to find and when we pulled up to park we saw it was a motel. That was fine with us, we were only staying one night and pretty much expected just a standard motel room. The man and woman at the front desk were very nice and polite! The man was getting a room ready for another family as we were checking in. The front desk area was very clean and the door was open so you could see they were doing laundry which is always a great sign! I gave her my paper I had printed for my reservation and there were no hassles, no id required and I could also pay for the room with my bank card instead of the credit card I had booked the room with which was great! It was only a couple minutes after 2 pm which is check in and she gave us the key for the room which was ready for us. As we opened the door we were pleasantly surprised! It led into a small living room with couch, tv with cable box, sink, mini fridge and cupboards with cups plates and cutlery...plus a mini coffee maker and coffee. Everything was clean! Then there was a door to the bathroom, the shower was nice and clean, clean towels, sink, hairdryer and a door through the bathroom to the bedroom so everything is a circular walk through. Bed was clean, and comfy!!! There were cute french doors separating the bedroom from the living room section. I had never seen a motel set up this way and I liked it! It was nicer than some hotels I've stayed at! When we came back around 8 pm to get settled for the night we were close to lots of places to get food so we went to the Tim Hortons only 4 min driving up the road. The motel was quiet and had a trampoline on the property which I gladly used:) Though I am 31 I still love trampolines haha though it was a bit too cold to be out there a long time. Like I mentioned the bed was very comfy!!! The room was also the perfect temperature for the rainy cold night. There were also chairs and cute little pottery ashtrays outside the door so you didn't want to smoke inside. They had little soaps and shampoo in the bathroom, shower was hot...only negative which was very minuscule was the shower head needed to be replaced, or just soaked in some CLR. Next morning checkout was at 11 am. While checking out a lady asked if she could stay an extra hour and the woman at the front desk told her that was fine with no hassles. I also asked the woman where we could get breakfast and she recommended Terry's Diner just up at the next set of traffic lights which was just what we wanted! I have not been to any other hotels, motels or Inns in North Bay though most of them are on Lakeshore Road but I would DEFINITELY recommend this motel and would DEFINITELY stay here again! The pictures on this review are for the Lakeshore Suites Plus so I posted the ones I took here!
