Our stay was okayish, we were first-time visitors to Orillia and booked two rooms. Each family brought a cat so we booked their pet-friendly rooms. Pros: The rooms were clean and furnished modernly. The A/C was working and the bathroom was clean with additional towel/toilet paper. The location of the hotel is very central, 2 min walk to lake Simcoe.if you don't have a car, we were able to eat, shop and visit many places just by walking during our stay. Cons: Be mindful if you're staying with pets, you will stay in a small dark room in the basement with barely light at all. This was a turnoff for us as none of their description/images shows a pet friendly room. We would have left our pets at home if we knew we would be staying in a basement. Considering you're paying 50$ extra for a pet-friendly room, I expected it to be in at least some light or space. There isn't space at all for a large pet to move. No drinkable water anywhere in the hotel, just an ice machine where the water has a bitter taste. Also their continental breakfast consist of frozen burrito and one cookie, with orange juice that was sold out in first day, never refreshed. Each room has a coffee machine, ours were broken, our friend's were working fine. Overall the location of the hotel is making it good if you're planning to explore, but if you're planning to spend time in the hotel and enjoy the view, don't bring pets and make sure to bring/buy water & breakfast with you.

We liked that the place is clean but it felt a bit old as well. We also didn't like the location being in the central. I was under the impression that it was a bit away from public and had more privacy.
