"One of my best travel experiences"

"Great Experience. Brand new, very well appointed; especially for the price and the brand. Tastefully done room and building; located as you enter Kapuskasing on the TransCanada highway. Great staff. A small-town friendliness; they take the time to answer questions and give direction. Interesting to listen to how they slip effortlessly between their native French and near-perfect English. A wonderful hotel in a very nice northern town."
