I am in the Sioux for work. I booked in advance thinking that for 49.99 their cheapest room will be decent enough... It wasn't. All that was in my room was a TERRIBLE bed, along with terrible mis matched out dated furnishings, a TUBE TV with no HDMI port and a tiny fridge that can't even hold a case of...

My daughter was driving home to Alberta today, and needed an affordable hotel in Sault Ste. Marie, so stopped at The Algonquin. She paid for her room ($60 a night), and tried to get settled in. The young man at the front desk had a bunch of his friends hanging out in the lobby, and as she walked past, (after...

Clean, friendly and helpful staff, the hotel met our needs. It has a great location and with investment the charm of the building could be brought out making it more attractive clients who value historic properties.

After recently visiting Alcatraz I had a strange feeling of dejavu when I walked into our "hotel" room. Tiny as a cell and a tiny uncomfortable bed to match, even a little sink with only cold water. No TV, no air conditioning and no sleep. The band in the bar below played long, loud and late into the night and...

The Algonquin Hotel was so disappointing in so many ways! A decent location, close to downtown and a quick walk to the Casino. The hotel could be half decent with the slightest of efforts and some upgrades. First, get some air conditioning or have cooling options! Sweltering heat on the third floor makes for a long night! The biggest issue...

The price was good but. Id rather pay more to have my own private washroom with a shower that I don't have to share with the whole floor. Also, it's very small rooms with no air conditioning and the bar does cause a lot of noise on the nights with live music so you'll need to request a room away...

People very friendly!!!!!! Very Helpful!!!!! Hotel was pronounced by them as old, but undergoing renovations. Room was mostly clean. NO air conditioning on the top floor. Five minute walk to the water front so very convenient to a scenic area.

Had to stop for the night and found this hotel. Excellent price and everything I needed was available within walking distance. The hotel also has two pubs, but they were not open so I can't give you any details about them.
