Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 4, 2013

I was there for this past weekend with my wife and kids along with three other families. Our check in was at 4 PM. We arrived on Friday at 12 PM. Asked the front desk lady who was very generous to assist us in any matter. We asked if any of the rooms were available. Since we had small kids she immediately agreed to give us two rooms so the little ones could get little stretch after long and early drive. It was great from there on. Outside BBQ by Pool was great. Kids loved the pool. Breakfast was great, especially the sausages. Will go back again.

The hotel staff at the Residence Inn was fantastic! The front desk hostess when we arrived was so friendly and helpful, as was the evening hostess helping us contact restaurants for dinner that evening. Not much open on the holiday Monday! That was the only disappointment I can say we experienced.
We had a king studio room overlooking the lake. Very spacious and a very comfortable bed.
Weather turned cool so didn't take advantage of the comfy chairs on the balcony. A board walk trail takes you to a few restaurants, with beautiful views of Lake Muskoka.
We would definitely return, but not on a long weekend, as Gravenhurst closes up on a holiday. Hardly any fine dining available on the holiday Monday and some of the tourist attractions were closed on the holiday.

Room Tip: Lake view is beautiful. The studio suites are very roomy.

We spent 2 nights in a lakeside suite last week and had a nice time. The balcony was off the master bedroom and mostly overlooked the parking lot with the lake just past it. Not really what we were expecting for having upgraded to a lakeside suite. The living area had a pull out sofa but it had only one arm on it so it wasn't very comfortable for watching tv. There was only one other lazy boy type chair other then a table and 2 chairs and a desk table and chair. The sofa bed was nit comfortable for our teenage son. There was a full size fridge, stove and microwave. Beautiful location, spent the day kayaking on the lake and got to watch the Wed night waterskiing show at Boston Pizza. The hotel was spotless and service was great!

Room Tip: The rooms facing Boston Pizza would have a nicer lakeside view then the parking lot.

Stayed here recently with my family with a lake view studio suite and it was excellent.
Marriot continues to offer clean and spacious hotel room with all the amenities we need.
The full kitchens are perfect for our family and allowed us to prepare our lunches for our day trips and make dinners when we didn't want to eat out.

The view was great and the location is within walking distance to a few neat eateries.

A nice little walking trail behind the hotel offer a beautiful view of Lake Muskoka from onto a rock cliff.
My only complaint was the loud air conditioner units in the room which somewhat interfered with having a quiet night sitting on the balcony. But this can easily be overlooked beacuse of the location and the well appointed room.
Would certainly come back.

We stayed here in the winter 2013, I would highly recommend bring your skates, snowmobile, etc. Beautiful area right on the water, I imagine the summer would be just as amazing! I hope to go back for a Winter Getaway this year!

Room Tip: I highly recommend any Lakeview room

Our family spent one night on our way to pick up our son from camp. We arrived late in the evening and left early the next morning so we didn't get to experience all that the Residence Inn had to offer, but we would definitely like to go back and stay longer. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and we had a great little patio with two Muskoka chairs overlooking the water with a beautiful view to watch the sunrise. Staff were friendly and helpful upon check in and check out. We were surprised at the quality and variety of the complimentary breakfast. The kitchen in our room would have been great to make simple meals had we been staying longer. Given that we were visiting during peak tourism season the room rate was a bit over-priced, but then again that is the Muskoka's!

Room Tip: Rooms on the water side afford a beautiful view

Our group has recently stayed at the Residence Inn in Gravenhurst for a four-day business meeting. As a coordinator I came in contact with many staff members, from management to housekeeping and kitchen staff and they all demonstrated the highest level of professionalism and courtesy. I would like to mention a few of them by name and thank them for going the extra mile. Shan, I appreciated your help, when I made a mistake in a reservation date. Laura, your patience and flexibility were truly commendable. Jon, it was your attitude, when you took me on a tour of your hotel the first time I was there, that convinced me to book with you. Anne, you were incredibly helpful with the left over food.

I highly recommend this facility to anyone who is looking for a well kept, clean place, with a lovely view in Muskoka .

Room Tip: Rooms with a view are worth an extra charge.
