I know covid has slowed everyone down from doing anything, but this place appears to be severely under maintained. In all fairness, it looks like they have fixed up the rooms, at least the one I was in, but I had to walk under leaking eavestroughs, and through wires hanging in my face, the door shock hanging off, all telltale signs that the maintenance guy doesn't exist. On top of that, this place does have a restaurant, though you can only do takeout and order ahead, but the prices were about double what they should have been. Who wants to pay 35 bucks for a plate of noodles and sauce? Only the desparate will. I suppose that's what they are counting on. I stayed at three motels during my trip and this one was the most poorly maintained while demanding the highest price. Almost 200 bucks for a single room for one night. I used to stay at the Hilton for that, and at least there the door shock worked. Perhaps I don't know the whole story, maybe it's under new management and they are working on it, if so, then they better get working!

My friend and I stayed here with her daughter in the 2 bedroom cabin for the weekend. Based on previous reviews, we had low expectations and brought our own cutlery, dishes, bedding etc. The property is a bit rundown but our experience was positive overall. Our cabin was very clean and came equipped with everything including dishes, cutlery, pots and pans, coffee maker, microwave, fridge and stove. We definitely overpacked because a lot of things were provided, even dish soap. We didn't have a TV but we didn't care because we were busy outside using the canoe and kayaks, swimming etc. Our cabin faced the property and the lake, but it wasn't right on the water. A few things to improve: clean up the beach every day, fix broken swings, ripped screens on the porch, monitor guests as there was a group of guys partying all night and playing loud music (it kept my friend's young daughter up) and possibly make campfires for guests instead of charging for wood. People in previous reviews complained about staff but I think it was perhaps a cultural difference, because I found the staff to be fine when I spoke to them politely. There may be a bit of a language barrier. Overall, I think that if you manage your expectations and come prepared, you will have a good experience here.

We decided to book a week here based on the pictures of a lakefront room and got taken! The room was dirty and the sheets had stains on them. The place was a health and safety hazard with broken doors and wholes in the deck you could fall through. We told the manager and he said he’d fix it. We arrived during a major storm and with no where else to go, stayed the night. We went for breakfast the next morning and came back and nothing was fixed. We decided to check out and ask for a refund. The manager and owner (talked to him on the phone) refused to give us our money back. They offered us a different room. I didn’t feel comfortable there since the place was in such a bad state of disrepair. The management/owners do not know the first thing about customer service. Do not get ripped off like we did! If I could give a lower rating I would!

My husband and I were looking for a quick getaway near Algonquin Park. Given the fact everything near Algonquin park was completely booked, we decided to come and enjoy a stay at the Algonquin lakeside inn motel. After all, the advertisement on booking.com said it had canoes available as well as other water equipment and a nice beach. The host also said there was a restaurant on the premises,bbq facilities and canoes and kayaks(at an extra charge) as well as picnic tables we could use. Luckily I asked lots of questions about the place and, I was informed this place did not have coffee maker:so we brought our own. Upon arrival we discovered there were no canoes, only some kayak we could use (at an extra cost of $20 every two hours) and furthermore, the location is extremely run down in terms of exterior maintenance. The swing seat out side our unit was broken and should collapse at any time. There is only one barbeque for everyone to use: Even the host didn’t know which barbeque belong to them. To be safe you should bring your own. There was no restaurant that was open at this time, or if it is open, I never saw it open while I was here. (although the host did say over the phone several times that the restaurant was operational and serve breakfast lunch and dinner) and given the fact this place is extremely run down, who would want to eat there anyways? Luckily, we came prepared for camping. (with food and all,) if you come prepared for camping, you too should do well at this location) For the most part bring your own sleeping bag and small stove, cutlery dishes and other items you might need, as well as camp table, and camp chairs: this should provide you with a fairly decent stay. Furthermore, if you want to go canoeing make sure you rent your own canoe before coming here and bring it with you. Algonquin outfitters say they will not deliver to this location, only locations in the park. With all these items in tow, you will find this place comfortable. Furthermore, the room provides you with a hot shower and is in pretty good shape. Our room seemed to be newly renovated so that is definitely a plus. The bathroom is the best part of the whole unit as it seems to be completely renovated inside. Also, you should definitely pick a water front facing room and you will get lots of sunshine in the afternoon. I feel bad giving such a poor rating, however the place is so rundown that if you come expecting something else you will definitely be disappointed! With a bit of paint, and some tender loving care as well as more water equipment for people to use at no cost, Barbeques for each unit, and better maintenance of the beach and exterior grounds this place could be quite a gem. After all,It is very conveniently located beside the West gate of Algonquin Park and it is a waterfront location, facing Oxtongue lake.

I stayed for one night while I was visiting Algonquin park and doing some hiking. I stayed in #10 in front of the lake. The bathroom was clean, the room smelled very fresh and clean. The sheets and towels were clean, the fridge and microwave were clean. I found the bed to be comfortable to sleep on. The room was nothing fancy and was missing some things like a coffee pot, alarm clock...minor things. I just grabbed a coffee in Dwight which isn’t too far away. I loved being right in front of the lake and I found the atmosphere very peaceful and relaxing. There are definitely some things that could be improved in the room, but in spite of some of those minor things I really liked it and will probably stay again. It isn’t luxury but I found it cozy and just perfect.
