We are very pleased that we were able to help you out and sincerely appreciate the kudos to Cheryl and Chris in regards to their customer service.

We booked a room which we got at the very end, it smelt terribly of smoke (it was a smoking room to be fair), younger son was in another room some way up the corridor, no food available and no drinks, everywhere was shut when we arrived, breakfast is really early so missed it but helpful staff gave me a...

We didn't have a great experience but the price was right. Desk clerk wouldn't budge on room assignment even though I made a good case using internet-posted materials. Hall smelled badly like old socks but the room was OK in that respect. Location is quite remote from amenities, so you're captive to their expensive and not very good breakfast unless...

Thank you for submitting your review. We are glad to hear that your room and our price point were to your liking. We are very sorry that you found the hallway uncomfortable. We constantly strive to provide an environment of comfort to our guests and this summer's humidity level has certainly been a challenge. We are located next door to...

Cigarette burns in my blanket and when they cleaned the room they didn't wash the glasses. We were given two coffee mugs that were dirty. The door from our room leading to the parking lot had a strong odour of cat urine. Cheap rate, cheap room.

Stayed here on Canada Day and got a great price on the room. Wasn't expecting to be so close to the fireworks either which worked out well. The guys that were putting on the show stayed here as well. Decided at the last minute to check and see if there were any rooms available here to get our holidays started...

Canada Day is a great time to pay us a visit! Our proximity to the fireworks, as well as other celebrations in the park area, is perfect. Also, with 2 restaurants next door, and another within 2-3 minutes walking distance, dining options are close at hand. Thank you for letting us know that all was to your liking. We look...

After a long drive it was nice that we had a comfortable and clean room with a dining choice next door. We also enjoyed walking the harbor walk after dinner. We found our room a little dated, but everything was in good condition. Breakfast was better than I expected and we enjoyed the breakfast burritos. I would recommend staying here.

My wife and I wanted to spend a few days in Sarnia Ontario, mainly to visit the OLG Casino and to check out the area. We looked for accommodations that were closest to the water and we came across the Harbourfront Inn.

Thank you for the wonderful review about your recent stay. We are thrilled that our location hit the mark and was just what you were looking for.

The bed is quite firm and comfortable. The staff is knowledgeable, kind & helpful!! The Heat/Air Conditioning unit is new and works quietly!! This is a real plus in an older hotel/motel. We love the convenient outdoor access on the lower floor!! The included breakfast is just OK. For lunch/dinner - two great restaurants are within walking distance.
