If you are visiting North Bay in the summer, make sure you check whether it is the shad fly season. I was told it lasts for 3-4 weeks. You should google it if you don't know what it is. The hotel did nothing to address the problem, even the front door is covered. Room is clean, and internet is good, but lighting is very weak (weaker comparing to other BW locations). Front desk is friendly. Restaurant in the hotel doesn't have discount for hotel guests. Slow. Service not impressive and food (I ordered the shrimp pasta) is pretty average.

After travelling 8 hours with a five-month-old, a three-year-old, and a flu stricken husband, Laura and the staff at the Best Western could not have been more accommodating. They went above and beyond to make sure we were all comfortable and had everything we needed including crackers and fluids for my unwell husband. Now that’s service! The room was great and the restaurant was fantastic! We couldn’t have asked for better service and we felt like we were family. We have now found our new favourite place in North Bay and will definitely be back.

We had a good 2 night stay in a 2 bedroom suite on the main floor. Lots of space in the room. Overall the place is nice, maybe a bit dated but cosy. The pool is large, I think the largest I’ve seen in this hotel category. Stopped for a quick breakfast at the Italian restaurant on the premises which was convenient. The restaurant is crowded but nicely decorated. Dinner was testy and service was OK, maybe a bit overpriced for the area.

From reception to check-out all personnels were polite, helpful and courteous with a smile. The rooms are well furnished with a real comfortable bed, clean and a refrigerator that allows you to have an open bar (for the family) The restaurant provides a good menu, excellent food (we never ate outside the hotel) and the good services provided by the waitresses almost exceed the good food..

Exhausted from a 3,000 mile road trip, this was our last stop. The Hotel Manager convinced me to drive no further and we booked one of her last rooms. The room was clean, beds sturdy and the hot tub and pool were a welcome diversion for our road buzz. She mentioned the Italian restaurant on site. It was incredible. This was the best food and our server also most accommodating to change portions and delay our entree'. We'd recommend this to families, couples or business travelers.

This hotel was very accommodating and as expected. I was originally here for business but needed to check out a day of early. Marley at checkin was very polite and professional. At check out, Laura was accommodating with my date change. You are fortunate to have such engaged associates. The room was as expected, clean and basic. The location is very beautiful in the summer, across from the lake and surrounded by large deciduous trees. My room was on the corner so very quiet. Great stay

Stayed for 4 nights with an atom hockey team. The hotel was very accommodating. The room was clean and the staff friendly. The on-site restaurant was very good, and the staff there was very good. Friendly and patient!

We are just returning from attending a Rotary conference and were really pleased with his welcoming, friendly and happy the Staff were to welcome us and our dog! As dog owners and frequent travellers we are often looking to bring our 60 lb dog with us. A lot of hotels will say dog friendly and then when you call to book they as how big is your dog. If over 50 lbs they are often quite “prejudice” and will refuse our pup. Very frustrating, as he is likely cleaner and less of a hassle then some humans I am sure. This hotel, when booking was thrilled (literally-the staff love dogs) and ensured us there would not be an extra charge for our furry family member. Upon check in they were happy to meet him and in no way made us feel like we were an inconvenience for bringing him. Thank you to the great staff at The Best Western of North Bay! Rooms were also very clean and good space for our conference. Easy parking and great walking area for the dog.

great room, great staff, location could be better, but the TV reception is horrible, scrambles at random, blank screen with sound etc... has been an ongoing problem at this hotel for months. was told by staff its been reported and nothing they can do about it in this remote area of NORTHBAY lol

Traditional layout, but nicely updated. Unlike the modern style, the room is laid out for convenience of the guest. Good bed, desk and other accessories, with lots of plug ins. Best phone charger I have ever used in a hotel. One of the nicest Best Westerns I have ever stayed in. Definitely return.
