I had to travel to the Soo and back and found the hotel room to be nicely pared-down during the pandemic. No papers or anything unnecessary about. Felt like a tidy bedroom. I did yoga on the floor with a travel mat and got an up close look at the level of cleanliness as a result. Very clean. Clean as Nonni’s! I felt safe and enjoyed the huge tub in my room at The Top of the Inn. Appreciated the restaurant staying open till 9 for take out. Nice close parking right out front and no need to sleep with ear plugs. Guests were great at sharing the hallway in passing. Will stay again!

Lovely hotel. Clean. Friendly. Well situated to the highway. We travelled with our pet and there was a very thoughtful bowl with treats .... unfortunately was for a dog whereas we had a cat, but it’s a lovely touch. Was surprised at the lack of microwave. Restaurant had a lodge vibe that was welcoming. Would definitely stay again.

When I was a kid the water tower was such an elegant and high end place to stay.. it seems to me that it is stuck in the 90’s the rooms need updating they bathroom sink looked like it was going to fall apart, paint is chipping everywhere in the room. The rooms are actually depressing looking. We loved the pools that was the only saving grace for this place.

Hi Amy, thanks for sharing your experience. I'm glad you and your family enjoyed a great time in our pools. We have a more colourful decor palette that is sometimes not suited to everyone's tastes, but I can assure you our rooms have been updated since the 90s. :) We have many room options. Perhaps we can find something more suitable to your needs on your next visit. Safe travels!
