Stayed here in September for a business meeting. Overall impressions: Worn. Tired. Stained bedcovers…only a tiny drop of dried blood in the sink. Grouchy front desk. It’s better than nothing and that’s the market they’re after. Next time book sooner before the other options fill up

Super clean comfortable room. Real kitchenette with full-size fridge and 4-burner stove with oven. Continental breakfast which you take back to your room to eat to facilitate social distancing. Will definitely stay here next time.

i was disappointed. The rooms were clean, and the staff friendly. The ceiling had huge water marks for a previously leak, the bed was like sleeping in porridge, it was way too soft. The bathroom amenities were half used. I had to stay here on business, although i love the town of La Ronge, i will consider other places on my next visit.

I visited La Ronge for the very first time this month - a community about 3.5 hours north of Saskatoon. The Waterbase Inn sits on the edge of Lake La Ronge with a float plane "airport" behind the property. The place is a bit weathered, but I don't know if any of the other motels in the area would be any better. Nonetheless, I had a good sleep and the shower was fine. The big draw for me is Robertson's Trading Post across the street. This is pretty much the coolest store I've ever visited, with an amazing butcher shop and a great place to find Native handicrafts, including otter and mink mittens and beaver hats.

We stayed at the water base inn during our trip to Russell lake in June. The accommodations were very nice and clean. The folks there are very nice and make your stay enjoyable. There are several paces to eat at within walking distance. We will stay again next trip to La Ronge.

Nothing too fancy. Worth it for the cost. One of the nicer hotels in town. Decent view of the lake. I would recommend the room with a kitchen. Very convenient and some rooms have a view of the lake...

Best accommodations in La Ronge! Our room, and in fact every portion of the inn we saw was sparkling and very fresh smelling. Spotless laundry facilities. Room spacious and we parked right outside the door, very handy for loading gear in and out. It was super quiet on the backside. We snowshoed right from the door out across the lake. Every staff member we encountered was cheerful, accommodating and super friendly. There is fast food right across the street, dining a couple of blocks away. It's La Ronge - The North. If you are expecting super trendy decor or white linen dining, you are in the wrong part of the world. Yes, there are some 'colorful characters' who wander the streets, but that's generally at the other end of this small town. On the other hand, the outdoors is the draw to this area! World class fishing, the natural beauty, water activities and unlimited winter recreation are right outside the door. In summer, the float planes provide all day entertainment a few yards away. Don't miss Robertson Trading Post directly across the street! One could easily spend a couple of hours marveling at the goods and displays in this uniquely Northern establishment.

The hotel was reasonable for what we wanted, Price, location, availability and WIFI, unfortunately there was no cafe or restaurant available nor vending machine. The staff on call were not at all interested in assisting with answering any questions. All we needed was a place to stay and the night was good, quiet and peacefull

Be prepared to have 3rd world shower. No hot water, partially warm at best. We rented 2 rooms they cleaned half of one. Their are other places to stay in town go their. Staff are of no help and seem like they don't care. I'm usually not a complainer but we are working in town and at the end if a day a hot shower is a must.

Very noisy hotel and the staff was very unpleasant and were not helpful at all. My room was somewhat clean there were some things that looked like they hadn't been wiped off in months which that kind of thing really turns me away. There are always drunks lurking around the street at night so it always made me nervous to go outside after it was dark. I do not recommend anyone stay here because it is just a dump!
