The Good
Among the reviews used for this analysis, positive reviews greatly outnumbered negative reviews.

The location of this hotel was frequently praised by guests for its convenience and the resulting views of the water from the guest rooms.

Many guests also complimented the pleasant views of the waterfront and of the International Bridge to the United States.

Many reviewers described their rooms as clean, spacious, and well-appointed with modern furniture. One guest said, "I was impressed with the new decor, and everything was very clean and in excellent condition [sic]". A few reviewers also specifically mentioned that their beds were comfortable.

The staff was also frequently praised. Guests described the front desk agents as friendly and helpful, with one reviewer stating that the staff "performed check-in and check-out functions quickly and answered questions readily".

The Bad
As mentioned above, there were few negative reviews or complaints found for this hotel. However some guests did express common concerns.

Several guests thought that the elevators were old and not well-maintained. One reviewer said that the elevator was noisy and "lurching" between floors. Update: the hotel contacted CanadianHotelGuide.com in April 2013 to advise that the elevators were replaced. Since this update, the hotel claims that guests have had a positive reaction to the new elevators, which were said to be brand new and efficient.

A few reviewers said that they were disappointed that breakfast was not included in the room rate. One guest said that he left the hotel for breakfast because the on-site restaurant and in-room dining menus were too expensive.

A couple of reviewers also thought that the room rates, in general, were expensive. One guest said that he "paid dearly" for his room.

Gloria from Sault Ste. Marie, ON CA rated Delta Sault Ste Marie Waterfront Hotel and Conference Centre 9 out of 10 on February 21, 2010 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"I chose this hotel for many reasons but one was to utilize the hot tub after downhill skiing and to my dismay it was "out of service"! I was almost inclined to relocate to another hotel with a hot tub but it would not have been worth the trouble to so so. I love the renovations and upgrades, the beds are fabulous and if I didn't know different, I would have thought I was in Toronto-Edmonton-etc. A great improvement."
