I stayed here for 3 nights with work in December 2012. They charged about $85.00 a night.
I would have given this location a '3' rating, but a couple of things happened that made me reduce it to a '2'.
The room itself was very clean and reasonably well lit. However, within five minutes of entering the room, the following happened:
I placed my pack on the bed and used the bathroom. When I went back to retrieve my pack off of the bed, I solidly stubbed my toe on a 'vent' under the bed; let me explain. The bed in this room (I'm not sure if all the beds in the other rooms are like this) is resting on what I assume to be a wooden frame (it's covered with carpet) that is flush with the outside edge of the mattress, so when you wlak up to the bed, there is nowhere for your feet to go under the bed (try it at home...when you walk up to your bed, if it's resting on a metal frame, your feet need to go 'under' the bed so you can approach it properly). The 'vent' that I hit my toe on was on the side of the carpet/wooden frame (the vent was likely there to let air underneath the mattress through this wooden box frame). I yelled out some choice expletives when that happened (I hope I didn't scare the people in the room next to me!).
They did have a bagged continental breakfast in the morning, so that was a definite plus.
The other thing that happened was that I left something in the room and didn't realize it until I was 850km away, back home. I called the hotel and was going to ask them to mail the item to me, but before I had a chance to say I would pay for any shipping, and even their time to send it, I was told, 'We don't do that'. Luckily, I did have to go back to Blind River and was able to retrieve what I had left. So, this place is alright, but those two occurences caused me to reduce my overall rating of this hotel. I would try another location as a comparison if I had to go back to Blind River again.
