Editor's Analysis
Updated on Dec 3, 2012
Overview
Drivers will find this hotel on their way into Kenora as it is located on Tunnel Island, right off the Trans Canada Highway. With many nearby trails, beaches and Lake of the Woods directly across the street, this hotel caters to travellers visiting town to enjoy outdoor recreational activities. 

Each of the hotel's 69 rooms offer free Wi-Fi and come with complimentary breakfast. Free parking is available and can accommodate large vehicles and trailers. Other amenities include laundry facilities (coin-operated), on-site barbeque and picnic area, tour/ticket assistance, meeting/conference room and currency exchange. This hotel allows pets for a fee of $10 per stay. 

The rooms come furnished with 1 or 2 queen or king beds. Non-smoking rooms are available upon request. Each air-conditioned room comes with cable TV with premium channels, a hair dryer, an iron and ironing board, a mini-fridge, a clock radio and a telephone. Local calls are free. 

Casey's Restaurant is located next door and shares the same parking lot as the hotel. Although there is no room service, Casey's will deliver to the front desk for the hotel's guests. 

The hotel also offers special packages for fishers and hunters that include on-site storage and abattoir services.

Downtown Kenora is a 10-minute walk from the hotel and there are several parks with beaches, such as Anicinabe Park, Norman Park and Keewatin Beach, within a 10-minute drive. There are several restaurants within a 2-minute walk and guests can explore local attractions such as Lake of the Woods and MS Kenora Cruise Line, which takes visitors through Kenora's scenic waterfront (including Coney Island's beach and the northern section of Lake of the Woods).

Confirmed with a front desk agent November 26, 2012: pet fees, restaurant delivery, special packages and laundry facilities.

"The staff at the Super 8 were understanding and very friendly. I would stay there again as the room was clean and I had four beautiful deer as the scenery out my hotel window. It was unfortunate that the pool was under renovation but I would recommend for anyone to stay there."
