Really cozy stay with the family. Big quiet rooms, beautiful location, and very comfortable beds and clean. Wonderful staff and breakfast. Would definitely stay here again, and I know my parents have made it a stop several times now.

It was a wintery weekend get away. Could not have found a more charming place to spend Valentines weekend with my spouse. The hotel is truly old school "keys & all". Perfect affordable spot. My only somewhat negative comment is that the beds in our room at least could use an upgrade to something more comfortable. Was a great spot,,,,

Thank you for your review. We are happy to know you enjoyed your weekend with us. Guests might like to know that we do have fireplace rooms in the Main Inn building. While the Waterfront Rooms are very appreciated in summer, rooms closer to our restaurants and Spa are are very popular in the winter.

The Gananoque Inn is our go-to place whenever we're in the Thousand Islands area. With both a classic Victorian main inn and two separate motel units - all of which have rooms offering an unobstructed view of the St. Lawrence River, the inn can accommodate couples, families and groups comfortably. The main inn includes a full-service restaurant w. patio (Musky...

We had a great weekend there. Had the prime ministers suite. Cottage feel. Great food, drinks and close to the boat tour. Can't wait to return! Lovely inn! Great character and nice service. The restaurant attached was perfect.

Made a last minute decision for a getaway night at the Inn. Was warmly greeted by the front desk reception. I ended up being offered an upgrade to better suit my needs at no additional cost. I hadn't asked for the change, and truly appreciated the offer which I gratefully accepted. The room was a King with a fireplace. Cosy...

Spent a night at the Inn. Was a 5.5 hour drive for me to spend the night with friends. Inadvertently left behind clothing. Called the Inn as soon as I realized to arrange to have the clothes sent to me. Stated that nothing was left behind in my room. Very disappointed that instead of turning in clothes left behind by...

I am so sorry for your loss but to suggest our staff took your clothes is erroneous. It seems you are missing just one sweater. We have black top in our lost and found department but you assured our staff that it did not fit the description of your missing item. I do hope it may surface with one of...

We recently visited this property while in Canada for a funeral. I was aware of the Inn from previous visits to their restaurant. However we never had occasion to spend an overnight stay.

We came here to celebrate our birthdays - great deal on off-season. We splurge for room 602 - it included $100 towards dinner and breakfast. Really enjoyed dinner at the Watermark - our waitress Natalie was great. Then we enjoyed an irish band at the bar. Food was great - service was exceptional - would definably go back!
