Best Western Plus Otonabee Inn
Ranked #1 of 12 Hotels in Peterborough
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Booked a riverview king suite for a one-night getaway with hubby in August 2012, we were thrilled with our stay! Suite was very spacious, bed was amazing!! Room was spotless, bathroom was spacious and very clean. Whirlpool was clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast was excellent, lots to choose from ... eggs, sausage and french toast were fresh and hot. We were a little late arriving to breakfast (it is on until 10, we got there about 9:30) but there was plenty of food left. Tons of seating, which was a nice surprise ... been to continental breakfasts at other hotels and seating was always limited.
Balcony view of the river was nice ... several canoeists, geese and ducks to watch.
Staff at front desk were efficient and friendly both at check-in and check-out.
We love Peterborough, and we will be putting this Best Western Plus at the top of our list to stay at during our next trip north!

We stayed in room 226 top floor called a riverview suite and we found the most note worthy aspects of this hotel were the friendly staff, and the good night sleep in a comfortable bed.

The cons were we heard the cleaning lady as if she was in our suite in the morning. I'm glad there were no partying teenagers next door. The bathroom was small, with the sink located in the living room poorly lit up. Last to mention if you like lifting your suitcases up and down stairs then book the second floor you will not be disappointed. 

Way better than the motel six, worth the extra money. Our friends room there was awful!

The staff at this hotel are amazing, alwasy postiive, upbeat and very accomodating.

I stayed in a King Fireplace room, and while it was nice, I was a little surprised to find the bed closest to the door, where you could easily hear the noise from the hall.

The bed was comfortable, and the room, while dated, was clean and well maintained.

We returned for another great night at Best Western Otonabee. On this visit, we had my 15 year old son and my 11 year old nephew with us. Once again, it is so helpful to have the pull-out bed in the room for an extra kid! Brian, at the front desk, needs a mention by name, because I don't think there could be a friendlier or more helpful front desk guy on the planet. It's a short drive to all the wonderful shops and local colour that Peterborough has to offer. The continental breakfast is basic, but more than adequate for everyone, even the picky eaters. "The boys" spent 3 hours in the pool, so I'm assuming it is as great as it was during my last review. And you can't beat the price at just over $100 a night. Stop shopping for hotels in Peterborough.

This fine hotel shattered all my previous misconceptions about Best Western. This property is new (or seems new), spotlessly clean and with lots of greenery surrounding it. From what we could see of the other properties in Peterborough, this was the best.
There was free parking, and lots of it. There was free internet, and a state of the art television set. Altogether it was a wonderful experience, and we will pay greater attention to Best Western Plus hotels in the future now that we have experienced one.
The only con I can think of is that you really have to have a car, since the hotel is on the road leading into Peterborough and is far from the city centre.
Oh - the night clerk that checked us out at 7 am was a hoot. He was like a stand-up comedian, shooting out quips and jokes as if he was on stage. For instance "I come to work at 11pm, but I don't start drinking until 2". Good for him, and especially when everyone else is still groggy from sleep.

Room Tip: The higher rooms have a nice view.

We stayed one night in this hotel. We had a standard room. We were pleasantly surprised. The hotel and the room (a double) were spotless. They had a nice sized pool that my son used. The complimentary breakfast including both hot and cold items was quite substantial. The hotel is only a short drive to Trent University. The stay met and exceeded our expectations. We will definitely stay here again.

This hotel site, grounds, staff and location are second to none in the Peterborough area. Our room was spotless, the bed was as comfortable as we've come to expect in BW establishments. We had every amenity in our room and even though the hotel was totally booked, parking was not an issue. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. They do not advertise a hot breakfast; however, french toast, sausage and scrambled eggs were available, along with all the other items you'd expect. This is a site you want to seriously consider if you're staying in the area.

Room Tip: Not all riverview rooms have outside balconies. Check for that when booking.
