The rooms may be small, but really - i'm here to sleep! always have a great sleep here - EXCELLENT beds, and the front desk does provide flat pillows is puffy is not to your liking. Very quiet (as crew members, we get 'guest sleeping' signs outside of our rooms, even at 5pm - because that may very well be when we are sleeping. May not be super central, but has everything you need and the shuttle boys are the best!
I have not used the spa, but i hear great things about it - especially the outdoor year round hot tub. I have used the gym and it is fine - better than most hotels i stay at.
i have stayed with family as well, and i like the feel of this place... a beacon of sleepy comfort.

You obviously stay in many hotels nation-wide, and therefore know a good hotel when you see it. As much as we try, many guests are not aware that we offer different pillow options should our regular pillows not suit your needs - I'm glad you have taken advantage of this service and that it has helped make us your "beacon of sleepy comfort". Thanks for the review!

I had a long day of travelling; just looking foward to getting home, and I was delayed. I had to book a place to stay last minute, and a fellow traveller recommended the Water Tower Inn & Suites. The booking was simple and affordable, and, upon arrival, the front staff and manager were friendly, warm, and very helpful. My room was well appointed, the bathroom stellar and had a jacuzzi tub, and the room was nice and quiet even though the floor was near full occupancy. I understand they had renovated recently and it looked new and the whole facility was clean and well kept. Casey's staff at the restaurant were helpful, yet not overbearing, and the food and drinks great. I soaked in the tub before bed, enjoyed the chocolates left on the bedside table, and had a terrific sleep. The morning staff were just as pleasant. I've recommended it to a number of coworkers who travel through the Sault (Sue), and those who had been there before said it's always been an excellent experience. Warmth and charm meet you and send you on your way. It's perfect for anyone looking to shop too - lots of options directly across the street and near by. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for the jacuzzi tub - excellent way to unwind after a long day of travelling.

I'm so glad our "warmth and charm" exceeded your expectations and made your experience here at the Inn so wonderful! I noticed you provide some very wonderful tips in your review...may I suggest another? Perhaps you were not afforded enough time during your impromptu stay, but seeing as you're a fan of our jacuzzi tubs, I would suggest you try to find some time to relax in our water-spa, Club Cabana Aqua Spa next time you're in town...the indoor and outdoor hot tubs are both extra deep and extremely soothing. Safe travels and return soon!

The title kind of says it all. The rooms are great, but you should also know there is a fantastic restaurant called Casey's Grill.Bar where you should absolutely order the salmon. Wow! They also have a pool facility that is more spa-like than what you might expect at a hotel. Very nice. You can also rent a bike during your stay, which is an absolutely great idea.

We happened to stay here during the Algoma Fall Fest, which offered up a performace of Nova Scotia's Beaton Sisters right down the hall from the lobby. Talk about convenient!!

Room Tip: I'm not sure all their rooms are quite good.

The Beaton Sisters are fantastic performers, and what luck for your visit to coincide with their show! I'm glad you were able to fully enjoy all of the Inn's various amenities including the delicious food in Casey's Grill.Bar. As you said, bike rentals are available for our guests, and there's really no better way to explore the Sault's many attractions than under your own pedal power.

Just a tip: The Algoma Fall Festival runs every year (just celebrated it's 40th) from roughly the beginning to the end of October. The many musical and theatrical performances are always superb! Look for the 2013 line-up on the Festival's website in the Summer and perhaps you'll find another show you might want to see.

Thank you kindly for the review!

Ah, such is the unpredictability of a Northern Ontario fall. While incredibly colourful and beautiful, it is brief...Mother Nature can sure be temperamental! Alas, on the brighter side of things, it seems you were not only able to enjoy the first snowfall of the year, but the first "Snow Train" ride!

Joking and less-than-enjoyable weather aside, it seems your recent visit to the Inn can be summed up in one word..."great". And we think that is just great! We surely hope you will return for another great visit...and perhaps actually catch the splendid fall colours of the North (they really are something special!)

Merci de votre revue excéllente. While Algoma's Water Tower Inn & Suites boasts many distinctive amenities (two dining facilities, an aqua spa, fitness centre, the McGuffin Art Gallery, etc), our excellent staff are our shining glory. Skilled and professional, our team members genuinely care about our guests and their experience while staying at the Inn. I'm pleased you enjoyed your personal experience and a great trip to the Agawa Canyon.

Booked package via the visitor center was a great stay for the train ride. Breakfast was included with our package and the food was quick and hearty and we saw several others we were on the train with eating at our restaurant because they did not get breakfast with their stay. Hotel was clean and staff was very accommodating and professional. There was a hot tub sauna and pool which we used to unwind after our train ride. We also received a $10 casino cash and we used it to return with some cash on the way home. Recommend this is a great place to stay for the value and the location.

Great experience. We were looking for a train adventure in Canada and Algoma's 2 day train package fit the bill. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Our room was clean and very comfortable. The hotel packed lunch was a better value than what was offered on the train. We were awarded with a fresh fallen snow on the already beautiful colorful trees on the train trip. We were very happy with our stay at this hotel. All in all the experience was by far romantic and very restful. Our breakfast at Casy's was excellent. The hotel staff was also helpful in directing us to other restaurants in the area. Boston's Pizza was great. We left with a good memory of this hotel and the surrounding area.

Room Tip: Fifth floor quiet and great view.

That unexpected five inches of snow got us on the national news that night, but yes, it would have looked fantastic on the red maples leaves. We are so pleased you had a fantastic experience. You mention “romantic” so am jumping to the conclusion this might have been a special occasion. The Agawa Canyon Fall Colour Train Tour was a good choice, and we are so glad you had such a positive experience.
