"Best bang for your buck in Bracebridge. Not many choices."
"For the choices of accommodation available in Bracebridge, Knights Inn was the best.. I look for accomodatin which includes Free Wi-fi, microwave & fridge (very important to me). I requested one Queen size bed, but got a room with two beds... I thought the room with one Queen size bed would give us more room for laptops et al.... not a problem, but just a comment about the arrangement. BREAKFAST consisted of orange juice (real or not??), coffee, toast (whole wheat bread - bonus) and Raisin bran (which was lodged in the container, so I assume it hasn't been used in a while) For Friday night, there were only 3 other vehicles when we awoke in the morning... I don't know if they belonged to employees or not!!)"

"it was ok."
"was good stay. but i had originally ordered a room with one queen sized bed and smoking section. But when i had arrived told me they had water leak in smoking section and i was moved to non smoking section with two queen sized beds for same value. although i have seen people walking in & out of smoking sections where they occupied the rooms in smoking sections. I felt as though they sold my room that i pre ordered in advance to someone else which i found it not fair, and i didnt like how they lied about it. other than that the amenities needed more like more towels, and soaps, shampoo. the ice machine was no where to be found. other than that room was clean. also in morning they did not have selections for food. Im diabetic i can not eat only raison bran cereal and toast,should offer more whole some variety of foods especially for breakfast. In kitchen area was extremely cold."
