Just spent 4 nights there. Impressed and so thankful, last time I was in the area the options were not great. This is a 5 year old hotel, great decor, free wifi, pool, hot tub, complimentafy breakfast. Rooms are thoroughly decorated and attention paid to details. The tv is on a swivel, can watch in bed if you like, or from the couch. Kitchen is very modern and well equipped, everything except an oven, which the girl on the desk explained upon checking in, apologized profusely for and offered to assist if there was something I needed baked during my stay! Seriously! Iwas starting to feel like I had fallen through a wormhole into another dimension.
I found ALL the staff to be very helpful, super friendly and all about making your stay easy. I was surprised to find info in the room that they will even grocery shop for you, just leave a list (no extra charge)!
I really liked how unobtrusive the housekeeping were, loved the sign for the door-that you don't need anything-how many times have I had the room door opened-just checking-despite the "do not disturb".In a suite as comfy as this it's quite possible that you are taking care of yourself, don't need anything and are mindful of the environmental costs of hotel life.
Breakfast was good, lots of choice, healthy or carboholic! The only thing people might see as a drawback is that there is no full time restaurant or bar here-However: there is a Boston Pizza adjacent, lots within a 2 minute drive and there are featured nights in the lobby: hamburger night, chili night, etc., help yourself, bottles of wine out, etc.
Snowmobilers paradise, they were parked right beside me and come right off the lake! Great place to stay

Stayed at the Residence Inn for 4 nights during a wild week of winter weather. The hotel staff were excellent and provided attentive service even during the most hectic times. Even though it was terrible outside, the hotel maintained a clean lobby area. Reception staff were friendly and made sure that we were taken care of. Housekeeping standards were higher than most properties in the area. The hot breakfast was comparable to those offered by other hotels and, even with a relatively full house, there was no waiting for food items. Its location is perfect for summer activities, sitting right in the area known as the Muskoka Wharf. In the winter, many of the amenities of the wharf were not open.

We booked this hotel due to its mentions on the snowmobile websites. You have access to a number of trails from the parking lot, and there is a special snowmobile parking area. When we visited there was a blizzard, but trails weren't open.

Staff was terrific. Lindsay, the evening front desk clerk, was so friendly! She chatted with us whenever we came or went, recommended places to eat, made sure we knew about the 6 o'clock social (with nachos!!), and was a terrific ambassador for the hotel. The room was very pleasant and clean, with nice towels. We checked out the pool but did not have time to try it. The evening social is nice after a long drive, so we could munch and think about where to eat rather than have to leave the comfy hotel to drive in the blizzard. The morning buffet is very filling, with porridge, eggs, sausage, waffles, orange juice, cereal and more. It would be a terrific start to any tourism or snowmobile riding in the area. The persons in charge of the food (both evening and morning) came to talk to us and say hi. Even the staff person cleaning on our floor chatted with us as we were leaving.

This hotel has the best, friendliest staff of any place I have stayed in a long time. I can't wait to try the snowmobile tour again, and will definitely launch from the Residence Inn by Marriott.

We also chatted with a fellow who was finishing a 6 week stay at the hotel on business, and he was also very happy with his long-term stay.

Room Tip: We paid extra for a fireplace, but it wasn't really a highlight. The lake view might have been w...

Stayed at this hotel with 11 others ages 9yrs to 52yrs. We had two of the larger suites with two room in each and pull outs in the lounge. Checking in was easy and our room where opposite each other. Breakfast was simple but perfectly adequate for all in our group. Unlimited make your own waffles suited the teenagers. The pool and hot tub are small but we had them to ourselves on one occasion. (Note the pool towels are tiny so don't depend on them to get back to your room, at least not in December). One of our group celebrated a birthday while we were there and the reception staff opened up one of the additional breakfast rooms for us to use for a impromptu party at not extra cost provided we left it clean for the next morning. They even left us a hover and large bin. This was very good service. Finally late checkout was arranged easily. We enjoyed our stay. We found plenty to keep us occupied for two days even in the winter.

We chose this hotel for its landscape (from the pictures we saw on the website). We were not disappointed because the area is very nice. Unfortunately, we've been there at the moment of the year when there is not much to do (the winter time didn't start yet). The room was spacious and nice.

Located on the shore of lake muskoka, this hotel is a gem. Well worth the price, rooms are large and very well appointed. Great staff, a pleasurable stay. Great place to stay and take a steamer ride. The fall colours were lovely.
