Country Squire Resort & Spa
Ranked #7 of 10 Hotels in Gananoque
Reviewed August 30, 2011

My family and I stayed here for three days and i was amazed! The breakfast buffet was great with bacon, eggs, homefries, fruits and cereal. The restaurant had great food for dinner. There was a bbq on the patio with live entertainment.

The hotel was very quiet at night, the beds really comfortable, more than enough pillows on one bed though and very spacious. The rooms were very clean and ours had a porch at the back that faced the outdoor pool. The indoor pool was very large with a hot tub and sauna. They had other facilities like squash/tennis/basket ball courts.

The Best Western was close almost all major attractions including the 1000 islands boat cruise. The staff was extremely helpful in helping us to find places to visit. The staff was great. This hotel is a great stay!!!

Room Tip: Pay the extra $10 or $20 for an upgrade!

We planned a trip to see 1000 island cruise..and stayed there for couple of days...had a great experience.....The rooms are really big, nice, clean & cozy....very polite people and good service...The hotel has indoor & outdoor pool, squash courts, tennis court, basketball & hot tub..any kind of playing equipment wasavailable on demand. Restaurent has very good food and good service as well. It is quote a big property but very well maintained..The hotel is close to casino, 1000 island cruise so obviously approachable. It was really a fun for the entire family...

We are a family of five (3 kids, ages 5-13) who stayed here for one night in August, before leaving on a houseboat rental. For this trip, we had my mother-in-law along, and got two connecting rooms.

The hotel was clean, and the service was for the hotel was excellent. It did seem a bit overpriced. (We paid over $150 per room for two queen. I think $120 or less would have been more reasonable.)

The rooms were a good size and were clean. Each room has a little patio with two chairs. It is an older property, but has been well maintained. There are no fridges or microwaves in the rooms as a standard. By pre-request you can get a fridge, which I did, and there was a fridge for each room on arrival.

They have extensive facilities (outdoor and indoor pool, indoor and outdoor basketball, an indoor squash court. We did not try any of those.

We did have the breakfast, which was a voucher for the buffet in the restaurant. At the time we went we got the last table. Others had to wait, and we needed to be patient for them to handle drinks and buffet refills. Breakfast quality and selection was good.

We had a view of the parking lot, which was Ok as we were only there for one night. If staying longer, I would suggest asking for a view of the pool area.

If in the area again for one night, I might stay there again after reviewing the prices at similar properties.

Run down, poor staff attitude, needs a good paint job. Tennis courts are decrepit, pictures they show you on line must have been taken in 1950's last time this place was cared for.

Terrible, dirty,smelly, over priced for what you get. A/C didn't work, vented tub didn't work. free movie channels were only good if you speak French or one other language, a couple didn't work at all. Everything was done on the cheap, cheap at sky high prices. We had to ask for our floor to be mopped it was filthy, our feet were black. Breakfast wasn't to bad, avoid the watered down OJ.

We drove to Gananoque to look around at a couple of places and thought we would grab a place to stay for the night. One of the places we stopped at was the Best Western. We thought about staying here so we asked to see a room and the woman desk clerk suddenly appeared to seem agitated at our request like it was a big hassle. So we actually did not get to view a room. We were told it was to busy and that we should get a room now if we want one. We were very stunned at such a reaction. We first chose just to assume the woman was having a bad day so we thought we would just discuss the price of the room. Without a smile or anything the price was told to us. We asked if this was the best she could do and we were told flatly that it was. We inquired if all the prices in the area were all around the same. We were then really astonished at the answer to our question. She flat out started naming off a couple of other places where we might be able to get cheap rooms. That so much wasnt the problem, the issue was that she actually started running a couple of the places down that are in the immediate area and calling them no good cheap dumps and if that is what we want to stay in we were welcome to sleep in a place like that. That seriously was the most unprofessional experience we have ever encountered and if the woman was having a bad day, we suggest maybe she should get a new line of work and not be working behind the front desk of a hotel. Her response about those other places only peaked our curiousity to go see for ourselves and to our amazement they were not what she was describing. She apparently was angry we may stay in another hotel. The Best Western upon further inspection was not really clean in the office and halls either from what we could tell. We suggest everyone should avoid this disaster of a place. There is much better places to stay all around the immediate area.
