The Waterbase is a decent hotel. The rooms are fairly large and the bed is comfy, which is very important to me. The decor is dated, but overall the hotel is still in good shape. Try to get the lake view, the view of the street is not that great. This is not my number one choice for a hotel stay in La Ronge because it does not have a restaurant attached, nor does it have a continental breakfast. Because the hotel is also a base for planes to take off from, in the summer you can be woken up pretty early. This is not as common in the winter months. I think if the staff was a bit friendlier and the location was a bit better, I would have given a 4 out of 5 rating.
