    A little walk from central but overall comfortable hotel. Only thing as we were there for 2 nights the room wasn't cleaned during our stay. I was advised hotel policy. Overall hotel ok under the current circumstances and restrictions.

    Ok, but run down

    The entrance to the hotel only allows people to park in the left side to check in, and right side for parking. Unfortunately no one seems to follow that and there seems to be all this commotion every evening with the driveway and entrance to the hotel. The room itself was ok, a little dated but fine. But there were holes in the sheets. Disappointing.

    Hotel was lovely. But couldn’t get service at the restaurant for breakfast( we stood there for 10 min waiting for someone to seat us) so we had to check out early for the hunt for food.

    Great location, staff is very friendly, very clean. Room is great! Since its expensive to stay here for a night, they shouldve make the underground parking free atleast. And they couldve make the pool usage for an hour, 40 mins isnt long enough to relax at their pool 😅. But other than that this place is awesome. We have enjoyed our stay.

    A Lovely Getaway Lodge

    A cozy stay, the Royal Canadian Lodge was very conveniently located, the staff were amazing, and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. From check in and concierge services to check out, staff were amazing. We had a flat tire on the day we checked out (when we were about to drive home), and the staff were awesome. They helped us find a tire repair service who came to the hotel. The concierge and guest services even made calls for us and helped us until the repair service arrived. P.S. If you are ever in need of a tire repair service ( I hope you never do), M.A.C.S. tire service was amazing! Fast, efficient, extremely reasonable prices and super professional.

    A high five and a thumbs down

    Concierge service was excellent- helped us book a tour and suggested bus service which we used. Disappointed that on a tight scheduled morning the hotel restaurant was not opened at posted time forcing us to leave quickly and find an alternate spot in order to be ready for a booked shuttle/tour.
