The Good
Manyof the reviews used for this analysis were favourable and guests were pleased with this hotel's location.

Guests praised this hotel's location for its proximity to the waterfront and to the downtown North Bay area (both approximately a 10-minute walk away). Restaurants and shopping were conveniently close, according to guests.

Staff were described as friendly, eager to please and accommodating in meeting requests to make sure guests were comfortable and happy. Staff were particularly noted as being flexible in accommodating room change requests and requests for early check-in or late check-out. (Some guests complained about the staff. See below for details.)

Several guests also said rooms were comfortable and spacious. There were some additional comments about comfortable pillows and beds. However, while a number of guests were pleased with the size of the rooms, several guests had complaints about decor and furnishings (see below for more details).

A number of guests commented favourably on the price point and indicated that they felt that they had received good value for the room rate paid.

The Bad
While the bulk of reviews used for this analysis were positive, guests did voice some common complaints.

The hotel recently converted from Inn on the Bay to a Days Inn, and there were a number of complaints about the new management, but they were quite varied and seemed to arise from individual circumstances whereby certain guests did not get along well with the front desk staff due to issues that arose. However, many guests seemed to indicate that the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Although the hotel was recently renovated, there was the odd complaint about cigarette burns or smell, and poor quality work.

Some guests were pleased with the free breakfast and some found mould on the the muffins and milk that had gone bad.
