We loved loved LOVED this hotel!
Our jacuzzi room was large and very clean. It had a small refrigerator, coffee maker, flat screen TV, "fireplace" (the kind with a remote control that can turn on an image of a fire), iron/ing board, and hairdryer. My husband wasn't crazy about the king pillowtop mattress (he likes a much firmer bed), but I found it very comfortable and cozy. The jacuzzi was great, and they even provided bath salts.
The hotel has a nice indoor pool, a sauna, a game room with pinball and videogames -- all of which we used and enjoyed. It also has a nice-looking exercise room with a treadmill, an elliptical machine, and I think a bike. We didn't use it, so I don't clearly remember. They also have a computer with internet access for guests to use. Oh! And there is a massage therapist who provides different types of massage at pretty reasonable rates ($40 for a Swedish massage, $75 for a hot stone, etc). Unfortunately, we didn't have time to partake of her services, but we peeked into the suite where she works from and it looked lovely and relaxing.
The breakfast was ok -- they had a couple different kinds of cereal, apples, bananas, make-your-own waffles, boiled eggs, and the standard processed white flour fare (bread, bagels, doughnuts, and danish). I really wish hotels would branch out at least into whole grains!
All the staff we encountered were very nice, pleasant, and helpful.
We paid $75/night (govt rate) and found it to be an excellent value. I would highly recommend this place!

This hotel does have a nice location and there are plenty of restaurants and gas stations very close by.

The room was attractive and had a micro and fridge which I appreciate. The room was very clean and the bed comfy. I liked the fact that the windows had blinds between the panes of glass so I could get in a good amount of light and still have my privacy. They had expanded cable, which I also like when I travel for business.

The problems I had in the room was that there was not a chair that could be used at the work table. there were two barrel chairs, but they are too low to be of any use. There was also no light by the couch. The couch itself seemed to be broken. It was a sleeper and when you sat on it, the cushions pushed down much more than they should have so that the back of your thighs was hit by the hard edge.

The bathroom was your average bathroom, but boy was the fan loud!

Breakfast was very average, nothing to rave about.

The front desk staff were very friendly and the computer which can be used by guests is in a pretty private area, which is not always the case.

This was not a bad hotel by any means, and I would stay again if the rate was a really good one, but next time, I will probably try a different hotel just to compare.

This hotel, just off the highway, is great. The pool, fitness, and even the coin laundry is open 24 hours. After 10pm, the pool is adults only. The fitness room has tv, water cooler, pools, and lysol wipes. A fitness station (equipment looked great). Newer treadmill and stair mill. Two elipticals (one much better).

That indoor pool is one of the nicest hotel pools I've been in. Large, has a large deck area and durable furniture, 8 skylights. Three walls of windows. There's a co-ed sauna, no whirlpool. Changerooms are a bit old, but no real concern. They're kept clean (I used them at night and again in morning).

The rooms have a fridge and microwave. Pillowtop mattress and lots of pillows. Windows do not open, but have built in blinds (within the two panes of glass). Wood furniture is knotty pine, so the theme is country. Perhaps a bit dated, but very clean. Nice carpet. Bathroom is fine.

The breakfast is 6-10am; hot fresh waffles are great! Three types of cold cereal. Juices were too sweet for my liking. Donut holes, bagels, boiled eggs. Coffee is in the hallway there, and is available anytime.

There's a Travelodge that shares the parking lot. Hardly anyone there, although it appears to have the same owners and rooms were just renovated. I looked in; those rooms looked basic. I suspect those guests would be able to use the Best Western facilities, but that's only my guess.

There's a shopping plaza across the street with Wal-mart, small JC Penny, a grocery store, Hallmark, Applebees restaurant and a few others. Newer Burger King a few doors from the hotel.

Stayed one night in July, paid around $79. The hotel was right off the highway, staff was extremely friendly on check in, the room was quaintly decorated and very clean. No Complaints there.

The fitness room was descent, a bow-flex machine, 2 treadmills, 2 steppers??, some bike exercise machines. I can't remember if they have a hot tub but they had a sauna which I loved and the pool water was just right.

They had a typical continental breakfast that was very descent with self waffles - can't beat that!!

Would highly recommend this hotel for any one visiting Sault Ste. Marie.

Easy to find right off the highway. Nice clean rooms and a friendly staff that was very helpful with suggestions for meals. They told us to go to this place called Clyde's...it was awesome. Best burger you'll ever have.

I've stayed at Best Western Sault Ste Marie multiple times over the years, and I have consistantly had excellent experiences. In addition to the friendly and efficient staff and clean, comfortable rooms, on my most recent visit I was pleasantly surprised to find a new fitness center and onsite massage therapist to go along with the pool and sauna! Add to that the highspeed wireless internet access and the above-average continental breakfast (fresh waffles!!), and you've got a hotel that I will continue to come back to when I need a room in the Soo.
