2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel was fine, and the restaurant was excellent. They catered the wedding reception, dinner, and party — did a great job! The issue we had was noise (so not 5 out of 5). The heater/ac in our room (142) was very loud when it kicked in during the night. This particular room is adjacent to the housekeeping washers/dryers and the staff started these just after on 7am on a Sunday morning. We were already awake, but someone wanting to sleep in on a Sunday would have been bothered by this. At breakfast another guest said he was first in a room with noisy heater/ac. When he contacted the front desk he was moved to a room with an brand-new heater/ac unit and found it much quieter.

ok even though i work there my guests absolutely horrified about incicent with raven houseperson on sat night. my daughter and cousin went to get toys from room, 161 and 155, to come back to meet us at lounge. raven screamed at them, for apparently running in the hall, there was a wedding going on at same time, very loud, had no drinks beyond this point going into 100s of hall. we were having wine in the lounge and these kids just wanted to grab something from room. they were coming to meet us and raven was screaming at them, and told them to take theyre stuff back to theyre room. they came back to tell us what had happened, and were scared. we were concerned. but it happened 2x. we cautioned them to not go back where she was. this was around 1030. we were sitting in lounge and raven was leaving work for the night and made a point to visit myself and family in the lounge and complain about these guys. before going home. i was embarrassed, my family posting on trip advisor and complaining about raven, although the front desk and housekeeping staff was lovely.

minutes from downtown. Lots of parking and good restaurants close by. Staff were very friendly. Check in was a little slow. Rooms were a good size. The bar staff were terrific.price was reasonable. Would recommend if 8n the area.

Great location and staff. Lovely dining experience. This dining room serves the very best of Italian foods and the breakfasts are delicious. The staff went over and above to help us to get to a location where we needed to go

It’s been a prevailage to stay at Best Western North Bay. The hotel and the staff has always amazed us with the excellent guest services and the amenities this place has to offer. Kids loved being in the indoor pool- well maintained and very clean. Farina Italian restaurant has an excellent menu and the mouthwatering food that you can die for. FAB bar has a welcoming ambiance for the evening snacks and beer/wine etc. Guest Rooms are spacious and very clean. Thanks to both Front desk and Housekeeping staff to make our stay memorable. Cannot wait to come back to this place!!

No complaints. We booked last minute as we were dropping our child off at the university. Place is clean just abit dated. Room was clean,air was cold and it was quiet for a good sleep. Would go back again. Was just abit further from the university than we wanted.

I was very disappointed in the Best Western this time around. I have stayed at this location once before and loved my experience. This time as I was sleeping I had a large spider (I have pictures) crawl on me just as I was falling asleep and I have arachnophobia so it was traumatizing for me. I barely slept that night and had to rip apart the second bed in my room (luckily there was one) to try and get to sleep. I left a note for cleaning staff and they did apologize and said the spiders had been bad there this year. After my shower on the second day (after a long day at work) I started checking the one bed I had slept in the night before and found yet another large spider, luckily this time before I was ready for bed. I then moved all of my belongings out of the room as I could not stand to stay in it any longer with now 2 encounters with larger spiders in the beds. The front desk attendant was very helpful and considerate of my situation and asked me to take her to the room to view the spider in the bed, so I did and we took more pictures and she alerted the cleaning woman that was across the way. I was told maintenance would also be notified. She was nice enough to check me into a new room for the night and personally checked the room while I was there to make sure there were no more spiders in those beds. I was still quite scared to be honest considering there was more than one in the other room I was originally checked into. I do understand that spiders can get into hotel rooms and that is perfectly fine, but they certainly should not be in the beds. I'm honestly not sure if I will stay here again. I do love Best Western but this was a terrifying experience for me and I may chose somewhere else to stay the next time I come to North Bay for work, or for pleasure. The front desk attendant told me that apparently the rooms closer to the back of the hotel are worse for the spiders than the front, so if you don't like sleeping with big spiders I would suggest you try to get a room close to the front. My colleagues (both men) after seeing the photos said they would have also not been okay with these guys sharing the bed with them, and both of them catch and release spiders to avoid killing them. Good luck!!

When you walk in the main entrance is amazing clean modern but once you get past that it dirty, mega cobwebs inside and when you look out the windows to see the indoor pool all you see is heavy cob webs.

We were a group of 4 guys on 3 motorcycles. The clerk arranged for us to get a room with a view of the bikes in an enclosed courtyard. And there was a wash bucket next to the door. Very nice touch.The in-house restaurant was great. Italian with a 2 for 1 special the night we arrived. Very tasty at the right price.And right across the street is Lake Nippissing, great for our morning walk.

Two choices of meals Main coarse chicken was nice, not overly hot Vegetables were good, risotto was excellent Staff was accommodating , Rooms clean and nicely decorated My personal room door didn't latch by itself And south side entrance was extremely to open with key card
