The most outstanding feature of this hotel is the huge natural rock in the middle of the lobby. The building is older but it was clean. The restaurant part of the Howard Johnson's was closed. Some bug bit me several times while I slept. The desk clerk was very friendly and efficient. Neighbors of the hotel were having a party....

We (family of four) spent a night at this hotel in August. Its great location was super handy with a Sobey's, LCBO and Swiss Chalet within very short walking distances and downtown Gravenhurst about 15 mins away by foot.

Service at front desk was great. Hotel was rather run down. We were in a non smoking room and are non smokers but whenever the shower curtain was wetted there was a definite nicotine smell in the room. Not pleasant. Crumbling plaster in the ceiling dropped into my wife's luggage. Rear door to hotel was wide open - no security....
