“Best in guest services”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2011

By far the Best Western Hotel I've had the pleasure to stay at. Beautiful location of Gananoque, great Resort facilities and friendly, warm service eg: Good Time Charlie's Restaurant. I will be back in the summer to experience again!

Room Tip: No worries, hotel administrators are wonderful in appreciation of the traveler/customer client.

The hotel is a great place for kids and family. We used it as a stop off point for a wedding, change, sleep and eat breakfast as a family. The room was comfortable, the amenities were sparce but that was fine for us. The room lead to great patio outside and a wonderful courtyard with an outdoor pool and swings, I was impressed. The word resort in the title is a little bit of a strech when reviewing the hotel. The breakfast buffet was great and my family loved it. The staff were helpful and friendly, the housekeepers rushed to clean our room (we arrived very early) and that was excellent. All in all this hotel was very accomodating. Keep in mind though it is more of a "motel" then a "hotel".

Room Tip: Ask for a room that opens to the courtyard. Worth the little extra money. You will get a nice balcon...

My Husband and I were celebrating our First Wedding Anniversary and wanted an economical getaway. I researched several hotels in the thousand islands area and based on reviews and price decided on the Best Western. It was nothing like I had expected.

The Good- Even though they lost our reservation, the girl at the front desk quickly found us a room and gave a bottle of wine to say sorry. The restaurant was a good value for dinner and breakfast (it was included in our package) Servers were pleasant and the food was pretty good for the area.

The Bad- The room we were given was not the one I originally wanted and was very run down. The walls were paper thin and the decor extremely out of date. The bed linens were not very warm considering the time of year and the heat in the room did not work very well.

The UGLY- The fact that they lost our reservation at all does not speak well for this establishment. The bathroom in our room was awful and lacked the basic amenties of your average hotel. When we went to check out the next morning the price was not what I agreed to when I made my original reservation. It was almost $40 more, when I questioned this, the Lady working at the desk was very condesending. She thought I didn't understand that there are taxes and gratuties added to a bill (I live in Ontario, I know what taxes are) when I explained I knew exactly what they were that the before tax and gratuity price was too much she went on to explain taxes and gratuities again. She ended up taking the price back to what I originally said but was very rude about it.

To sum up I would never stay at this hotel again or reccomend it to anyone I know.

This was a very nice motel, which has nearly finished upgrading. The room was big, with all amenities including free wifi. The free hot breakfast buffet was very good. There's a basketball court, squash court, indoor and outdoor pool. The 100 island bridge is a minute away and the motel also sells tickets for the Gananoque Boat Tour.
I would definitely stay there again.

We stayed two nights and we were not impressed at all. Our room was average at best. The bed was comfortable and the amenities were adequate. But, frankly, the whole facility is in need some renovation and some TLC. The buffet breakfast was good, but the tables and chairs in the restaurant were not clean. For the price that they charged, this hotel should have been a lot nicer.

We planned to stay at the Gananoque Inn but it was booked, typically we stay at higher end places such as Embassy suites, Hilton, etc. My wife was a little iffy on the resort, her standards are quite high. We found the room clean and quite comfortable. The room has hardwood floors. We do not typically have the room cleaned after we arrive; everyday we found clean towels, soap and shampoo hung to our door. We have never had this at any other place we have stayed. The grounds were nice, however the front of the hotel could use some work, Best Western - invest in this place, as it is a real gem - help the owner to refine the look. This resort has all the facilities, while some need maintenance, others have been maintained. I would recommend this hotel and will definitely come here again.

Room Tip: Make sure you stay on the south east wing of the resort, you get a balcony that allows you to see th...
