We ended up having to stop in Magog on our way north due to a blizzard. We showed up at the hotel with no reservation and no expectations other than a bed for the night. The desk clerk was nice, the rate was fair, and we were pleasantly surprised. It is average, but not because of any real deficiencies.
In the summer, this location would be ideal - it is right on the lake, and walking distance to town for dinner or shopping. In the winter, there is less to offer, though we did look at the outdoor sauna and jacuzzi, both of which were clean and nicely situated.
Rooms are typical mid-level hotel; nothing special, but perfectly fine. Ours overlooked the lake and had an outdoor area that would be nice in better weather. The bathroom needed an update, but everything was very clean. Beds are comfortable. We had a child with us, so it was good to have a mini-fridge. There is plenty of closet space and the room would be fine for a longer stay.
We did not eat at the onsite restaurant, which is an upscale place. I think a casual dining alternative would fit in better.
Overall, I would recommend this place to others traveling to Magog, but I might seek out a more charming option in the area -- this hotel is similar to a Four Points or Comfort Inn.
