The Bad
Most reviewers had positive things to say about this hotel in the reviews posted online and read for this editorial. However, one issue arose for a small number of guests regarding the lack of an on-site restaurant. 

It seems that the hotel is a little removed from the downtown district for those without a car, cabs are expensive and restaurants in Sioux Lookout close early. 

One guest who missed having a restaurant on site, also pointed out that there were 2 restaurants in walking distance the Forest Bar and Grill (a 9-minute walk) and Knobby's Sportsman's Restaurant (a 19-minute walk).
