“Good Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2013

I stayed one night in this hotel while in the Sault on business. Overall I was pleased with my stay. My room was clean. The beds were so-so, neither very comfortable or uncomfortable. I really enjoyed the pool facilities at this hotel- very nice. I was initially concerned about staying at this hotel as my business was downtown, but it was a short ride. This hotel has a cozy, comfortable atmosphere. There is a Caseys located in the hotel. We had no issues finding a parking space. There was some noise in the hallways at night from other guests entering their rooms but this is hardly the fault of the hotel. Overall I would recommended this hotel for business and family travel. I think families would enjoy this hotel and the pool area would keep kids occupied.

Thank you for the review! Many don't realize how navigable and accessible the Sault is. Ten minutes either way and you can be seeing the latest Hollywood film, experiencing the great Algoma outdoors or snagging the latest fashions. The downtown core is only 5 minutes away. Glad you enjoyed your stay, and we hope to see you more in 2013.

I love this place! No details are overlooked. The front desk staff made us feel welcome immediately, the room was extremely clean, good food and service (and live music!) in the Pub. I have also eaten in their Caseys (not this time but recently) and it was excellent as well. I have no doubt that the staff here are what make this establishment feel like home.

We stayed here as part of the Agawa Canyon Train Tour package. Great value for money. Excellent breakfast included. We bought the packed lunch to take with on the train trip and it was more than adequate and better value than what was available on the train. Sandwiches and cookie were fresh and made on the premises.
The staff are very friendly and helpful, giving us all the information we needed.
The 'goody bag' given to us when we checked in was a nice treat.
Would recommend and stay here again

My husband and I asked for the upgraded room and Agawa Train package and thought at the time, it was a reasonable price, if they delivered on the quality. We arrived a day early as the weather wasn't great for hiking and asked if we could get the upgraded room. They were all taken for that night so we got a standard room. We were very impressed with the standard of the that room and would have been happy to stay in it, but were really impressed when we got in the upgraded room the next day. It is a really nice facility, very clean, good restaurant for all times of day and a really good value for
the price. They gave us a packed lunch for the wonderful train trip (it was enough for two meals for us, but we are seniors and probably younger people could have eaten the whole delicious lunch). I have told many friends that a trip to Sault Ste Marie for the train trip, water and hiking activities and Bush plane museum is a great trip and they must stay at the Water Tower Inn. We hope others will enjoy, too.

Thank you for the review and for the many recommendations to visit the Sault, the Agawa Canyon Tour Train, and of course, Algoma's Water Tower Inn & Suites. I think the title of your review very much reflects our company culture - we are much more than what our star rating suggests. Now, I sure hope you had one of our homemade granola bars in your lunch-to-go...delish! Thanks again and season's greetings!

Clean rooms (bathrooms spotless) albeit tired rooms. Beds are comfortable enough. Nice touch to add creamers in the fridge in lieu of usual coffee whitener. Walls a bit thin. Had to turn on tv to drown out next rooms mid level conversation. What this place has going for it compared to other hotels in area is nice pool with waterfall and outdoor hot tub. Decent workout room. They have an on site pub with live entertainment. "Jazzy Jeff Holmes" sounded great last night. Good conference and business networking facilities. Serves Starbucks coffee and 5 dollar breakfast sandwich deal, and although there is a Casey's on site, if you have small kids, there is a McDonalds across the street with a Play Place (next door to the independent Steamy Bean coffee house, also good). Bottom line, we paid a reasonable rate at 119 for the night. We would stay there again for our son to use the pool facilities, if their rate stays competitiveap. Be warned though, this is junior hockey country, so if you don't want any part of kids running thru the halls (as they do), ask if there is a tournament on during your stay and if so to put in a "quieter block" of rooms. Front staff very courteous too.

You obviously enjoyed the many amenities that make us a "Resort for the Price of a Room". Club Cabana Aqua Spa (our pool facility), as you say, is unlike any other in the Sault, and perfect entertainment for adults as well as our younger patrons such as your son.

We are serious about the comfort and quality rest of all of our guests, and have a zero tolerance policy in regards to noise in the halls. Our Reception staff are pleased to deal with any complaints.

Thank you very much for the thorough and honest review. I wish you a very happy holiday and a safe trip home.

My wife and I stayed at the Water Tower Inn Dec. 2012 for a romantic getaway, from the moment we arrived we were amazed with the hotel and staff. We stayed in the Dream Suite (Rm 200), when we walked in there was a bottle of champaigne chilling and a bag of goodies to enjoy. There was also a cherry scented bubble bath and body lotion setting on the edge of the tub. We had only been in the room for a couple minute when the front desk called to find out if everything was good with the room and to see if we needed anything else to enjoy our stay. Overall my wife and I had a great time and would definitely stay here again.

The rooms may be small, but really - i'm here to sleep! always have a great sleep here - EXCELLENT beds, and the front desk does provide flat pillows is puffy is not to your liking. Very quiet (as crew members, we get 'guest sleeping' signs outside of our rooms, even at 5pm - because that may very well be when we are sleeping. May not be super central, but has everything you need and the shuttle boys are the best!
I have not used the spa, but i hear great things about it - especially the outdoor year round hot tub. I have used the gym and it is fine - better than most hotels i stay at.
i have stayed with family as well, and i like the feel of this place... a beacon of sleepy comfort.

You obviously stay in many hotels nation-wide, and therefore know a good hotel when you see it. As much as we try, many guests are not aware that we offer different pillow options should our regular pillows not suit your needs - I'm glad you have taken advantage of this service and that it has helped make us your "beacon of sleepy comfort". Thanks for the review!
