This was our honeymoon stay, just a short ways away from home. The Stone Gate Inn is a comfortable, beautiful place. We felt @ home and the staff being very friendly, kind and "real" .
We purchased a package that included 1 night stay along with 2 theater tickets, Lunch vouchers from the Mariposa Market(which we took out and ate as a dinner on Saturday night), and 2 $50 vouchers for the Ossawippi Express. Overall great value! We were also treated to a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine that we were able to enjoy in the Jiacousy tub as we had a Luxury suite on the 4th floor. The Complimentary Breakfast served in the lounge was really nice with a good selection.
This is a comfortable Inn, suitable for real people either on a business trip or just on a getaway. The bar doesn't mix all drinks that one could ask for but enough variety to meet most requests.

After travelling to three cities in three nights for business, my coworker and I were surprised to find such a gem in the city of Orillia. The hotel did not appear to be in the best of neighborhoods but once we walked through the front doors, we knew this was going to be the best stay of the week. The staff were extremely friendly, the rooms were huge and welcoming. The beds were comfortable. The showers were clean, lots of pressure and tons of hot water (a must for me!). No small detail was overlooked. There were blackout blinds, terry cloth robes, shampoo, conditioner, hairdryer, etc... They even had bottled water in the fridge! Even though they did not have to do anything further to impress me, the staff went even one step further by knocking on my door about 5pm to give me a handful of ovation chocolates. Mmmm... The hot tub was fabulous, the breakfast hearty and all this was minutes away from downtown (where our meeting was the next morning). I wish we had stayed here and travelled to Barrie the day before instead of staying at the Travelodge (Hwy 400 & Bayfield - yuck).

I've stayed at this hotel 4 or 5 times for business purposes, and for that it is absolutely wonderful.

I've stayed in the king suite (very nice), the studio suite (king bed in a separte room with french doors and a full kitchen) and a regular room with 2 double beds.

All rooms were always very clean, comfortable and quiet... The chocolates on your pillow every day are a nice touch.

The front staff has always been VERY helpful with various requests I've presented them over my stays.

The hot tub isn't great, it's an above ground tub you'd find in someones back yard. The pool is not much bigger than the hot tub, but it does go incredibly deep for a hotel room (9 ft or so).

The continental breakfast is good - the only major complaint I would put forth is that of seating. There are no regular tables where you can sit and eat... They're all those low chairs with coffee tables - making eating a bit awkward. Also, it's a small area so if the hotel is busy it might be a bit of a problem getting a seat.

Overall, great hotel and I'd recommend it thoroughly :)

This was our 3rd stay at the Stonegate Inn and it was great. We love the rooms - this time we had a suite with fireplace and jacuzzi so enjoyed them very much. Everything is always super clean. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast is tasty and plentiful.
We took the shuttle to the casino for a concert and this was the way to go - saved us driving and parking.
Thanks again Stonegate for a lovely stay.

I found your hotel through an internet search and then went to tripadvisor to review. I just wanted to say that, you have a lovely hotel and great staff. We stayed in a "top floor" room. The hotel room was excellent (pillows are a little soft but plenty of them) - and we liked the fact that the fireplace was the focal point (not the TV)! Staff is very friendly and made our stay extremely pleasant. Great place to stay if you are going to a concert at Casinorama! We will be back.

We were looking for a place to stay on a one night trip to Orillia for a night at the casino. As always, my first stop is always on tripadsor.com to see what people have to say about the various hotels. I ended up calling the Stone gate inn after being satisfied with the reviews from recent guests. From the start, the staff on the phone took time to answer all my questions in regards to location, and proximity to the casino. I ended up booking a suite for 170/night, and was very pleased happy that I did. The hotel itself is very easy to find, and the staff were very helpful from the moment we arrived. Our room was beautiful, and had a very nice clean king sized bed for us to enjoy. Here are some other points that you might want to know..

1. The casino is about a 10- 15 minute drive away, but i do know that there are shuttle buses available depending on how busy the casino is. The staff have maps that they give out to guest with clear indications on how to get to all the action.

2. A great thing about this hotel is the 24 hour grocery store right next door. After a couple of days on the road, it was a welcomed treat to get nice fresh fruit and juice for the room.
3. The continental breakfast was very good, and way above average from the other chains. The pastries and bread were all very fresh, and they also had a great selection of muffins, cereal..etc
Hope this helps, and again, thanks to the great staff at the Stone Gate... Job well done.

  • Liked — The room, the service and the great location ( next to 24 grocery store...10 minutes to casino)
  • Disliked — That we had to leave...
