“It was ok!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

It was the only place I stayed when I was in Hearst so I don't know if it was the best in town or not. By my standard it was ok.
I liked the bar-restaurant next to the motel. The food was good. Staff in the motel and restaurant were all nice.
my room was on the fist floor and I thought I wouldn't like it but it was ok.

Very clean room. Good breakfast. A bit noisy with the mill behind you but if you are just passing through for a night an ok stop. Try some Loon vodka from the local distillery. Excellent vodka and it will help you sleep. Lol.

For many years, the Companion Motel has been a regular stop-over motel on our trips to visit family in northern Ontario. While the motel is well worn and appears to be very popular, it has always been clean and well maintained. That remains the case. The Companion's most valuable asset to us has always been their dining room which served tasty and well prepared menu items. There was never any need to drive around looking for a really good meal. Our most recent visit there was not up to par. While their prices appeared to have risen, the portion size had gone in the opposite direction. One of our diners was served with meat that was not freshly prepared and salty canned gravy. We will stop over again and hopefully our experience was just a one-off on a bad night.

Stayed in the hotel while travelling through Ontario. We arrive late in the evening and weren't sure of where to stay so we tried here. Check-in was quick and the lady was quite helpful and friendly. The room was clean and update. We ordered room service which was quite prompt and the food really good. We didn't get a chance to enjoy the lounge or restaurant but both looked quite nice. I would definitely stay there again while travelling through the province

I stayed here one night with work. They charged $79.00 a night.

I was hesitant to stay here because of the train tracks that run behind the hotel. But I tried the restaurant for supper and was impressed so I stayed at the hotel.

This is an older hotel that has been adequately maintained. The attached restaurant is very good and reasonably priced. The food runs the gamut right up to lobster tails, and their breakfast is very good. There is a fairly large bar in the hotel as well. There are two hot tubs, steam room, and exercise equipment room up on the second floor. I didn't have time to try any of that, but it all looked pretty good.
The room was spacious and clean. I had no problems with the WiFi. The bathroom was good. Overall, this is a good choice of hotel for Hearst. I'll be back!

The staff here is awesome and the onsite restaurant has great food also. Stayed on the second floor. The room vibrates all the time. Talked with a buddy that has stayed here also and he said every time he stays here that the floors vibrate all the time. So no you are not going through a earth quake. Beds are not comfortable adn you are better off using a bath towel for a pillow.
