"There is only two hotels in Kirkland Lake and by far the Comfort inn was the better.I think the $139.00 per night was a bit too much for what you got."

"For the $138 that we paid for one night here it really wasn't worth the price. Indeed the rooms are what you'd expect for a Comfort Inn.A good size and reasonably clean. But that's about it. There was complimentary coffee and tea offered but no Continental breakfast. They advertised Internet service available but their computer was down. A Mediocre stay at a relatively hefty price."
