"Relaxing"

03/11/2018

Had a night away room was great extremely clean and comfortable only thing that I can complain about it the hottub could need upgraded the jets didnt work real well. Front desk staff were extremely friendly and rate was fair.

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Hello Relaxing, Thanks for taking the time to write a review for us. Glad rooms were clean and staff friendly. I will let my maintenance man know about jets. Hope to see you again soon.

"Conference stay"

4
28/10/2018

Loved the room and the hotel was nice overall. Attractive and spacious rooms. Housekeeping was fantastic. Clean room every day. Appreciated the layout and felt it was spacious. Fairly quiet. I was beside the stairs so couldn't have expected silence. It wasn't an issue though. Only criticism was the technology issues in the conference rooms - problems with the mics everyday and sometimes multiple times during sessions. Staff tried to fix things but they kept happening. I've never seen so many issues in a conference space. The other comment that may or may not have been the hotels issue (could have been what our organizers paid for) was the delays and scarcity of coffee for breaks, etc. Maybe our group hadn't paid for bottomless coffee. Otherwise, I'd stay here again with my family if in the area again.

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Conference Stay Thanks for your feedback, we really appreciate it. I will talk to my team in regards to all the technical issues. Regards, Michelle Weber

"Safe hotel choice for the area"

16/10/2018

Check in/out was fast and easy, room was clean, pool was heated and warm - although the entire pool is "the shallow end". Internet worked fine as did the TV, water was hot, towels were abundant and clean. Some noise from the pool area on the first floor, a generally safe choice for the area.

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Safe hotel choice for the area, Thanks for the lovely review, we hope to see you again soon.

"Hidden Costs, "Shared" Pool & Hot Tub"

3
13/10/2018

Would have given 4 stars for the comfortable and quiet stay, but a hidden fee tacked on to my checkout statement, and the fact that their pool, sauna, & hot tub facilities are shared with the general public. I'm not a big fan of getting into a pool after a bunch of parents & infants too young to be toilet trained are either in the pool or just got out. The water aerobics group took up considerable space in a pool that is quite shallow, and occupied most of the hot tub. Having said that, if you don't intend to use the pool, & don't mind an additional fee of $4.00 (for "marketing") added to your bill, the hotel should be more than adequate. Beds are comfy, room clean, good selection of tv stations, 2 computers available in the business area for checking e-mail, etc., and complimentary toiletries make for an overall good impression.

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Hi Wayne, We do rent out our pool to Orillia Parks and Recreation a few nights/mornings per week, other than that, our pool is not shared with public, I'm very sorry they inconvenienced you. I have removed the Marketing charge from your stay, I do wish you had told us at check-out, as we would have been happy to take care of it at that point. You should see the credit on your card statement within 7-10 business days. Thank you so much for your feedback, both positive and constructive, it is appreciated.

"Comfortable rooms"

The hotel is located within a few minutes of Highway 11. They are located close to a number of activities within the Orillia area. The room is comfortable and relatively clean and quiet. The staff are friendly and accommodating.

Comfortable Rooms, Thanks for the nice review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and we do hope to see you again soon.

"Last-minute trip"

02/10/2018

This was a good place to stay. I especially enjoyed the on-site restaurant, the Grape and Olive Bistro. We had a great meal, the food and service were outstanding. I wish the swimming pool was deeper than 1.2 meters, that's my only quibble.

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Anne, thank you so much for taking the time to review our property, it really means a lot! We're glad you've enjoyed your stay and your experience at the Grape & Olive! We hope to see you again soon!

"A few hiccups but generally good stay"

4
25/09/2018

I stayed here for one night as I was attending a concert in Gravenhurst (only 30 min. away, and Orillia has a lot more choices for hotels). It was not perfect but it was generally comfortable and I would consider staying here again. The room was nice, appeared recently upgraded in terms of carpeting, furniture, and bedding. It had a small table with two chairs but no desk; if you were here for work (e.g., a conference!) then you may need to ask for that. The bathroom also seemed modern although there seems to be a mold problem where the shower tiles meet the bathtub (see pics). But the view I had was to a back garden with a gazebo where a wedding was being held. Very scenic. And the hotel was still quiet that night despite all the wedding guests staying there. I used their fitness room on this stay. Exercise equipment was in decent shape, although the stationary bike wouldn't give you an exercise program; the software seemed to be frozen. I used the elliptical/stair climber instead, which I enjoyed. The weight machine could use some oiling and tightening a couple of bolts. The only issue I encountered was a very loud drilling-like sound at 8am Sunday morning. I asked why they had construction going on so early, and they said it was the pipes, which they have previously had fixed. I did not stay for breakfast. The biggest plus: I got the room on Air Miles. It's hard to find hotels in Orillia that still participate in Air Miles because of Casino Rama, so being able to book a room on points was great! Overall, the combination of Air Miles plus a generally decent room and facilities, minus a few hiccups, equals 4 stars from me.

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
A few hiccups, Thanks for taking the time to write a review for us. I will get my maintenance man to check into the issue you spoke about and address them immediately. We really appreciate you bringing this to our attention. We hope to see you again soon.

21/08/2018

Can't tell you how beautiful our daughters wedding was at Mariposa Inn at Best Western in Orillia Ontario. Gorgeous flowering gazebo with hanging sheers. Great patio with bar , table ,chairs and umbrellas. 6 appetizer served. Dinner in the ballroom was delicious. We chose the prime rib, salad desert and coffee. Red/white wine on tables. The DJ Ken was simply amazing. Leanne the event co ordinate was top drawer, worked non stop. A simply wonderful experience. Thank you to all staff at this establishment.

03/08/2018

The wedding and reception were held at the hotel so it was most convenient to stay here. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The staff was very courteous, friendly and helpful. There are a number of restaurants in close proximity in addition to the one attached to the hotel. If you are traveling with a dog, there is a lovely, level trail about 100 feet from the rear of the hotel.

17/07/2018

The rooms are large and clean with a microwave and a fridge. The beds were queen size and quite comfy. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. The pool is large enough but disappointingly shallow, 1.2m. The hot tub was all right though a little cooler than I would like, at least it didn't scald us. There is a restaurant in the hotel, but we did not eat there so can not comment.

Rooms clean and very comfortable bed. Staff were excellent! Shuttle to Casino Rama was very great no driving.Food in bistro was good but stained table clothes a turn off. Rugs need to be replaced stains everywhere. Hallways and staircases had a distinct odour. Would stay again for ONE night for the price paid.

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
One Night Stay, Hello and thanks for letting us know about the stains on the rugs, we just had them professionally cleaned but obviously I need to call the cleaner back. I will check into the stained linen along with the odour in the stairwells, we do appreciate you letting us know about this. We do hope you will return. Regards,

"Enjoyable One Night Stay"

13/07/2018

We stayed for one night, mid week at the hotel after a day's outing at Santa's Village. The check in and out was speedy. The room was clean and very comfortable. It wasn't noisy at night which was helpful in trying to get to sleep. Staff were very helpful and made us feel welcome. We didn't get time to use the pool but it looked like a fun place. We had breakfast the next morning in the hotel restaurant as we booked with a breakfast package. The offerings were tasty (toast, yogurt, bacon, sausage, apples, and eggs). They were able to accommodate my daughter's celiac disease and provided her with gluten free toast. Overall, a most enjoyable experience and we would definitely go back.

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Enjoyable One Nigth Stay, Thanks for the lovely comments and I am so glad we were able to accommodate your daughter with gluten free toast. Maybe next time you may have time for a swim. Regards,

Enjoyed a two night stay. Reception was cheerful, helpful, knowledgeable. Room was comfortable, fridge, coffee maker, microwave, clean, bed was comfortable with pillow choices. Lovely out back view of gardens and patio area. Pool is nice with doors to outdoor patio, great during summer. Also areas for sitting and sunbathing. Hotel has made a trail to connect with the Oro Mendonte Rail Trail, you can ride into Orillia and continue to Midland or head south to Hawkestone and on to Barrie. Location of hotel has easy access off/on to Hwy 11 and 12 south, 5 min drive to downtown and waterfront, lots of popular restaurants in area. Onsite restaurant The Grape and Olive opens at 7 a.m. for breakfast, offers lunch and dinner and has a nice bar area just off the restaurant, friendly staff and reasonably priced good breakfast (didn't have opportunity to try lunch or dinner). Hotel has fridge in the lobby with microwaveable food you can purchase which is a handy thoughtful offering. Great stay.

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a great review of our property! I'm so happy you loved our rooms and amenities. Unfortunately the Grape & Olive Wine & Martini Bistro is no longer open for lunch but we do still have breakfast, dinner, and a themed Sunday brunch once a month. We really appreciate your review and business and we hope to see you again soon!

"Disappointed"

24/06/2018

The hotel itself is fine. It is clean and exactly what I expected. However, I had booked this particular hotel 2 Weeks in advance because it had a pool for my kids. Upon arrival there was a sign on the checkin desk advising the pool was closed for renovations. It did not say this anywhere at the time I booked. The front desk offered to to book me a room at another hotel with a pool. Unfortunately, They were all sold out for the night. Front desk also advised that the pool closure was on there website and had been for a while. I pulled up the web site on my phone and showed it to her. There was nothing. Had I known, I would have booked another hotel in there area two weeks ago. This was supposed to be a treat for my kids to get to swim. So very disappointing!!!! Best western ruined our weekend away!

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Disappointed, I am so sorry to have ruined your weekend. It is on our website but not in the best location on the site. Our pool was in need of repairs and paint and there never is a good time to do this. I would love to extend a complimentary one night stay with us. Please call me directly.

24/06/2018

My partner and I arrived quite late for check-in after catching a show at Casino Rama. The hotel was easy to locate through GPS and close to late night fast food restaurants if you need to grab some! Greg was at the Front Desk checked us in, very efficient, a lovely bright smile GSA, informative. Felt welcomed to the property. Upon entering room 210, I noticed a distinctive paint smell. I know on the hotel website, the rooms were recently upgraded. I'm not sure if it was that recent. It did bother me for a bit and was too tired to bring this up to front office. Overall, the room was very clean We didn't get a chance to experience the amenities at the hotel and hope to do so next time. Patricia did our departure and was very approachable and enjoyable to chat with. Though I only had encountered two staff at the hotel, they left a great impression behind. Not all properties you go to and receive a genuine smile. :)

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Orillia's Hospitality Is Right Here! Thanks for for lovely review. We actually had to do repairs to our pool and paint it, that's where the smell was coming from. Hopefully next time you may enjoy some downtime to take a swim and use the hot tub and Sauna.

06/06/2018

Our 20 year old daughter had to do training in Orillia so we booked this hotel so we had a midway point to meet up with her. Called and asked if she could have an early check in at 1 p.m. - no problem. The training was cancelled, so she ended up being dropped off at 10:30 a.m. AND THEY LET HER HAVE A ROOM! They also gave her information on the trails (right behind the hotel with TONS of wildlife) and things she could walk to near the hotel. There was no additional charge AND they said their policy is if there's a room available, they do not hold back rooms and welcome the guests at their earliest convenience!!! Nice gym, super friendly staff (gave us all the coffee pods we wanted). Location is perfect! Absolutely would return again.

I would stay here again. Staff were friendly. Only issue was very loud and rattling HVAC. My room was a bit dated, in need of new carpeting. I felt the room was dreary and a bit depressing but it was clean and smelled good. I wouldn't hesitate to use this facility again though.

"Not for a team stay"

12/04/2018

We stayed here for a hockey tournament and I will start off by saying the staff were very professional and friendly. However, we paid the same rate that teams paid at the other Best Western in Orillia but ours did not include breakfast. Kind of a pain when you have kids going to early games. Very strict rules and polices regarding socializing which meant going out somewhere every evening. We asked about renting a boardroom which we could for a price but we could not have alcohol in there. Kind of defeats the purpose. We have stayed at many hotels during many hockey tournaments over the years and this was by far the least accommodating. Also, there is a landfill right behind the hotel which gives off a pretty strong stench making it very unpleasant to open any windows or spend any time outside. Not our best experience.

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Not for a team Stay, Thanks for taking the time to write a review to us. Unfortunately we do not include breakfast as we are a full service hotel with a restaurant on site. We typically do allow a board room to be used for groups but most of them were either set up for an event or hockey equipment may have been stored in them. Unfortunately due to our liquor license we are not allowed to have alcohol in rooms without a permit, which must be obtain by the guests. We are very strict about 11 pm no noise policy due to accommodating other guests in the hotel that would love to have a great nights rest. We really do try to accommodate all our guests. Yes we do have a landfill site behind the hotel, sadly I do not have control over that. I am sorry that you felt that our hotel was not up to your expectations. If you wish to reach out to me, please feel free. Michelle Weber- General Manager

06/04/2018

Unexpected stay over the long weekend. Hotel was quite busy with sports team and another event. Very much appreciated that the hotel placed us in an area distant from the comings and goings of the teams; this really contributed to a positive stay. Room appeared clean, was fairly spacious and the bed was comfortable. Staff at front desk were friendly and helpful. Was not impressed with the almost $5 tourism marketing fee added to my account on check out; this was not discussed with us when we were provided with our rates, so it was not a pleasant surprise. Were not able to eat breakfast in the restaurant due to the Easter brunch, but if we stay again, would like to give it a try. Overall, a solid choice in Orillia.

We stayed there while attending a concert at Rama. The hotel has a shuttle to the casino and is close to lots of amenities in Orillia. The staff was helpful and polite. The room was clean and no issues were seen. The restaurant had an awesome buffet on Sunday morning. The only downside is that the Buffett is a bit pricey, but the food is awesome! I'd go back for sure!

I haven't stayed at this property in 10 years. The staff was great right from making my reservation directly with the hotel, to check-in to check-out. The room was fine, a little dark but all the amenities. Housekeeping was great, plenty of towels ! The bed was super comfy & I slept better here than at home! There is an on-site restaurant, pool & sauna & gym. A pleasant stay!

The staff here did everything to make my stay enjoyable. Andrea in the bar was wonderful but the hotel lounge closes at 9. I can see closing the restaurant but leaving the lounge open so people don't have to retreat to their rooms would be nice.

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Great but... Thanks for your review, usually we do stay open later in the lounge is the business calls for it. I will talk to my team in regards to extending hours when the hotel is busy and guests want to have food or cocktails. Michelle Weber-General Manager

Had a good night. Bed was nicely made up and comfortable. No fan in the bathroom. Dated decor especially noticeable in the hallways. They have a great buffet that we unfortunately did not have time for on this trip.

my new husband took me to Orillia for a post wedding visit with my new in-laws. I was so delighted to be treated to a wonderful suite at the Mariposa Inn. The breakfast buffet the next morning was adequate, but not spectacular. The pool was a comfortable temperature, the depth is shallow enough to keeps parents from worrying too much about it being too deep for their children while they are swimming. The lobby was immaculate. There are lots of activities all around the area to see, Orillia is so historic and beautiful!!

Good Afternoon, Thanks for the great review. Glad to hear that the hotel was clean and you had a great rest. I will share with my team, we hope to see you back soon. I will follow up on the buffet with my chef, thanks for the feedback. Michelle Weber General Manager

Hotel was clean, comfortable and close to the hospital, restaurants and major highway. Staff was friendly. Check in was quick and seamless. TV signal was a bit of 'hit and miss' as the signal seemed to be freezing up. Could have been the weather that night as it was snowing really badly and very cold.

Upon arrival we were told that our confirmation number was not valid. Patricia (at the front desk) saved the day. She was personable, pleasant, patient and extremely competent. After some time, she discovered the problem and had it corrected. (It was not the fault of the hotel). Patricia was the most efficient front desk staff that I have ever dealt with. She's a gem in the crown of Best Western. The entire hotel was extremely clean, including the pool area as well as our room. The bed was comfortable, everything was in working order, and well maintained. Nearby are restaurants, fast food and a quick and easy access to Hwy 12. Every year we travel to Orillia, and we now have a "go to" accommodation. We'll be back.

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Good morning Lainie B, Thank you so much for your generous review! We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay and that Patricia was able to assist you. We look forward to seeing you again. Michelle Weber General Manager 705-325-9511 x5300

08/01/2018

On a night when the outside temperature was -24C (-12F) we just wanted to get inside and to our room to warm up - surprise The room was a chilly 18C (64F)! This cost cutting measure was not implemented with the guest comfort first and foremost. We froze for the more than 50 minutes it took to warm up to only 20C (68F) - not the 22 we had set - RIDICULOUS. We went our for the evening to the theater and when we returned to the room it was again back to 18C. If this kind of cost cutting measure is to be implemented the recovery time should be MUCH LESS. We are aware that many complaints were made because of the inadequate guest comfort. Otherwise the stay was fine, beds were comfortable and staff very friendly. After more than ten visits to this hotel we will never stay again.

We love animals but were not told we were close to where several people were staying with their dogs. They barked and kept us up most of the night. Also it was minus -22 outside and the thermostat was locked to a max of 25C. As soon as the heater shut off parts of the room became very cold. I couldn't work at the desk beside the heater because it was too cold there when the furnace turned off.

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review

This was our 3rd visit, this year, (2017) to the BW Mariposa in Orillia. Each time the staff have been very friendly and accommodating of any request presented to them. The hotel is conveniently located with a variety of restaurants nearby. A short drive away is shopping and cultural experiences like live theatre. Our first two visits we took in theatrical performances. This time was to spend a birthday weekend of relaxation. The pool at the BW Mariposa is very family friendly, only being between 1 and 1.2 metres deep.

This hotel is located on the outskirts of Orillia in an area replete with fast food restaurants. There are many options available for food. The hotel is about 5 minutes from downtown and an easy drive to other local attractions - Barrie, Casino Rama etc. The hotel while older, is in good repair. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and quiet and had a microwave and fridge. Our only regret is that it didn't supply a free breakfast however the attached restaurant offered a basic buffet for $8.00 plus the cost of coffee at $2.50.

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Thank you so much for your kind review, I'm happy you've enjoyed our hotel and amenities! We do try to keep our prices competitive and we do so by not adding breakfast into our room prices but we can look into that as well. Thank you again for your comments and we hope to see you again soon!

Spent 2 weeks on business and leisure and stayed at this hotel. It is a Best Western so is a good quality but not luxury hotel. It is on a Main road that allows you to access anywhere in Orillia quickly and get to many area in and around quickly. Two floor hotel room in and L shape, lower number are by front desk which you have to walk past to access restaurant and conference rooms. Pool also by front desk. This mean easy access but noisier. There is sauna, pool and large hot tub all good. Number of families with of kids here as well. Room decent. Beds comfortable, each has 4 pillows with extra blanket and pillow set aside. Front desk people very good to deal with any problem or request they responded immediately. They even texted some of my group ensuring all was ok. Breakfast was included for us and served starting at 7. Again service was outstanding. This place puts an effort into customer service. Would recommend.

Highly recommend staying here. The room was nicely decorated, very clean and was thrilled to find an ironing board and iron in the room for my gown. Picked this hotel specifically for the pool, hot tub, and sauna. Worth it after a long travel. The outdoor area was pleasantly decorated with lounging chairs for the summer months. Nice restaurant. Situated close to the highway and many other restaurants. I loved the charcuterie platter that was delivered by very fast room service. It was quiet and safe. Has an elevator for anyone using a walker or scooter. Loved it!

29/10/2017

Stayed here for the past 5 years for an annual event. Without incident. This year was different. Constant smell of weed and late night noise from a hooker that was staying at the bed of the corridor who had mat gentlemen callers

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Hello charlesprince212, I'm very sorry you were under the impression we allow prostitutes in our hotel. We do not and never have. We get photo ID and a credit card from all of our guests upon check-in. As for the smell of weed and late night noise, we do have security on when we have big groups in, so they can monitor these things. As I'm sure you're aware, if someone smokes outside, regardless what it is, that smell can follow them inside, especially as it gets colder and sticks to their clothes. Anyone who smokes in their room will be assessed a $250.00 cleaning fee, and it's one we don't hesitate to charge. I'm very sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. Don't hesitate to contact me with any further concerns. Michelle Weber 705-325-9511 x5300

20/09/2017

We were visiting friends in the Orillia area, and traveling with our two dogs. Finding somewhere to accept the dogs was difficult. Mariposa Inn not only accepted them, but had little dog welcome packs that included pick-up bags, some treats, and temporary ID tags so we could write where we were staying and put it on the collars. The facility is clean, well kept. The room was a bit on the small side, but we did just fine. The dinners at the Grape and Olive restaurant is a bit expensive for every day use, but OH SO GOOD. I've had much worse meals at very expensive restaurants. Guests should try to budget in at least one meal there. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

They arranged our shuttle to & from Rama. I had made reservations at Theo's Eatery down the Rd, the hotel confirmed those reservations. Not overly big hotel, room very clean. The beds were comfortable. Right off the Hwy & easy to find. Very close to Rama, walking distance to Restaurants, Swiss Chalet right next door. Theo's Eatery 2 traffic lights down the road. Best hotel for the price in the area. Enjoyed my stay so much, my husband and myself have already booked to stay here again for our anniversary in just over 2 weeks.

We found the hotel to be in excellent condition. The staff was very helpful. They gave us an an extended checkout time of 1: pm.There were no odours in the room or in the hallways or elsewhere (as there are in some hotels). Without asking, we were given a room overlooking a quiet grassy area.

"Beautiful place but won't return"

27/08/2017

Beautiful hotel and all the grounds were very nice but needs a lot more for me to return.... Stay started out wonderful until a man tried to bust down my down saying it was his room ( this was at 1030pm and I was alone with my 7 year old daughter). Told him he had the wrong room. Front desk calls me a few minutes later ( her name was Michelle) speaking very rudly telling me that nobody is suppose to be in that room and who am I speaking too.... Apparently they didn't do their job properly and tried to give someone the room i was in as the earlier front desk girl didn't book it as occupied on the system. Was pretty freaked out and couldn't sleep ( if it wasnt for me having the other deadbolt turned, the man would have entered the room while we were sleeping). Fire alarm went off at 11pm because of a wedding going on ( no actual fire though).... Staff sent us all outside which is normal procedure. We were out there in 11 degrees weather in our jammies for almost 2 hours and not one person that worked there came and offered anyone a blanket ( yes all the staff was in and out of the building the entire time). They gave the entire hotel free breakfast which was nice. Now on to my morning experience...... Got to breakfast and got a table right away. Waitress got us our drinks but then did not return for about 20 mins to take our order (7 year old is getting pretty darn hungry at this point and with zero sleep it made it worse). After 40 mins we got our breakfast. We watched everyone that came in after us sit and eat and leave before we even received our food. Went to go ask to stay longer at the front desk. Spoke to Patricia to see if it was ok as breakfast took so long and all she could say to me in the most ignorant tone was " well thats what happens when everyone in the hotel eats breakfast" I was like " huh" you arent even gonna empathize with me to make any of our stay seem a bit better. This Patricia lady was terrible from the fist time we dealt with her in our way in. We went to say bye and check out an hour later for her to look at me and say " ok bye I'm done with you now" oh ya and the power in our bathroom was off as well....... Its really too bad as it is a beautiful hotel....

We have always received excellent sevice and the employees always go out of their way to make us feel welcome. We would never stay at an other hotel if there is a best western in the area.

18/08/2017

This is our fifth time staying here. My kids love the pool there. Check in was a bit of a stressful situation. I asked if I could pay debit, but the bank machine would not accept my card....the lady at the desk said it was odd for that to happen.....I couldn't understand why it was not accepting and saying I reached my limit.......so I called my bank and they assured it me it was nothing at my end so I went back down and again it would not accept. Long story short they ended up charging the room to my visa...but it was the lady the next day that said their bank machine was not working....why did the other girl not tell me that, it would have saved me panic and a call to my bank......other than that, the room was where we asked, the beds were comfortable, but the rooms are getting older, our bathroom door was very warped....and I found a bobby pin on the floor. We still plan on coming back.

13/08/2017

We chose this hotel for proximity to casino and stayed only one night for a concert! We arrived late afternoon and were welcomed and quickly checked in by Kim ...Very friendly ,very efficient! Our room was updated and clean! Loved the kitchenette! It would have been perfect if balconies were available! We found the gazebo on property a perfect place to relax after our drive and enjoy a picnic dinner! Beautiful property with direct access to an amazing trail! Highly recommend taking bicycles to enjoy more of this trail in either direction. Shortly after checking in we Received a text from Greg from the front desk just making sure everything was perfect and if there was anything he could do! Nice service! We got ready for the concert and went to check in about the hotel shuttle! They run to casino beginning at 5:15pm and run every hour on the 15 until 11:15. Because we had just missed one we decided to call a taxi ( not realizing you needed a ticket from the hotel to return on the shuttle) After the concert we found the shuttle pickup with a long line and chatting with another guest found out then we needed a ticket! Decided to try a taxi! Taxi service in Orilla is very limited! I do not recommend counting on this for transportation later in the evening unless you are able to prearrange a pick up!? The next morning ,holiday Monday ,went to the hotel restaurant to enjoy breakfast! We were seated quickly and informed the buffet breakfast was no longer available due to time but we were welcome to choose from the a la carte breakfast menu which was delicious! Our server ,Jessie ,was very personable ,always smiling and chatted easily with us! She inquired into our day and made recommendations on what to see and do in the area! We found the service exceptional at the hotel! Thanks for a great stay!

"Literally No Place to eat-out in Orillia"

11/08/2017

We arrived for the Carlos Santana Concert Sunday afternoon, that weekend apparently there was also some street music festival in town. After check-in we headed over to Casino Rama for a nice meal before the concert. What a disappointment it was as the line ups to get into any of the restaurants required reservations or had line ups which ran outside the restaurants for 1 hour wait to be seated. Disappointed we just ate a sandwich across the street from the casino. But we thought we would make up for it by having a nice breakfast/lunch the next day at the Best Westerns Restaurant (which is serving breakfast/lunch and dinner) The next morning we headed over to have a nice meal (again) but the hotel restaurant closed at 10AM because it was a holiday Monday! So we checked out and headed to a old dinner which was recommended by the hotel concierge and again there was a line up from the inside of the restaurant out to the street. My Conclusion is that this small Town of Orillia is not equipped for a long weekend with such huge events and cannot handle the amount of people that want to eat out. As a customer if you are staying at this hotel over a holiday then don't expect to eat at the hotels restaurant any time after 10AM. Overall, I found the rooms outdated, the showers old and rusty, it lacked the nice ambiance that I was reading in previous reviews.

My husband and I visit here the same time every August, never a disappointment! The staff is very friendly, hotel is very clean and the grounds are very well maintained and beautiful! We use the back for many outdoor games such as bocce and croquet. A special thank you to Patricia, Catherine and April for making our stay that much more enjoyable. A perfect place for a couples quiet getaway.

"Amazing customer service and comfy bed!!"

09/08/2017

We have booked a room at this hotel for 2 nights using reward program points during the July Canada Day long weekend. Prior to our arrival, we called to inquire about something and Patricia from the front desk was very pleasant to speak with over the phone. She was actually the lady who checked us in and also provided us with great service during our stay. Shortly after we settled into our room, I have received a text message from front desk manager Michelle to ensure we have everything we needed in our room. Another text message was received from Michelle the next morning to check on us as well. What a great touch!! During our stay, it was raining on and off, so we have stayed in our room quite a bit. We did not use the pool but have checked out the pool area and found ample lounge chairs around the pool area. Room was not fancy but clean and sufficient space to move around. Also, the bed was super comfy. I have to say that the bed there is even comfier than some other 4 to 5 stars casino hotels in Orillia/Niagara Falls area. Walking distance to Swiss Chalet and Harvey's from the hotel which was a plus. Everyone we have encountered during this stay was friendly and ready to help! Would definitely stay here again when we visit Orillia in the future.

Stayed one night and found the room clean and comfortable. Have to thank the front desk staff for going out of their way to satisfy. Very friendly and when I called the hotel to say we have left a coat on the front bench, they said they would run out and get it and it was there on our return. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. They had a shuttle that ran to Casino Rama where our concert was. This saved a lot of hassle of trying to find parking and our trying to navigate our way back to the hotel in the rain. Cost us around $20 round trip for the 2 of us. There are about 4 restaurants within walking distance that made it in convenient for us to get a bite in before the concert. We also took advantage of the CAA rate. Pool was nice but shallow (1.2m deep) which would be great if you had kids using it. Still enjoyed it and the hot tub.

07/08/2017

The room was very nice and very clean. The heating/cooling unit was so noisy that we had to turn it off to sleep and the water pipes made a hammering noise in the wall. Water pressure went down during my shower so I think they need to update some plumbing. The front desk clerk told us they have been working on replacing the the heat units so hopefully that will improve.

Excellent value for the price. Staff were great. This time I used the restaurant and was very happy with the quality of food and the service. Hotel rooms were very nice.

We booked this place for the weekend for a prayer retreat. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had the same server (Dawson) throughout the weekend, which gave the weekend a personal touch. The location was perfect, not too remote, with restaurants such as Swiss Chalet and Harvey's right next door (not that the food was terrible, but it was good to have options). The first day we had mashed potatoes, (amazing), chicken, and vegetables. For dessert we had the most amazing cheesecake (Cheesecake Factory worthy). The next day we had a BBQ with burgers, steak and fries. Patricia at the front desk was super friendly and took matters into her own hands when our meeting room had not yet been replenished with water the next day and I needed some for my medication. All in all, it was a fabulous experience. This facility has a pool and a small gym.

Rooms clean,staff pleasant. No continental breakfast-no coffee in Hotel Lobby. $10 for return shuttle service to Casino Rama. Average stay but would have like the Continental breakfast as room was expensive due to it being the long week-end.

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Hi NancycS2887KO, We do sell coffee in the restaurant for our guests and we also have Keurig coffee makers in our guest rooms, which is why we don't offer it in the lobby. With regard to breakfast, again, we do have a full service restaurant on-site and would like to give our guests the option to purchase breakfast instead of hiding it in our rate. We rent a shuttle to offer our guests, the shuttle fee helps to offset some of that. We match our room rates to other hotels in the area of the same quality.

Nice comfy bed with upgraded amenities in the room. You can tell it used to be an older hotel but was very clean and well kept.

We arrived Saturday to a very friendly reception from Patricia. Our room was ready, bright, clean and nicely decorated. Then a text from a Teri asking if everything was satisfactory! Wow! Pleasant atmosphere! Then we walked over to Kelsey's for dinner. The next day while my daughter was at the OPP headquarters for the day I used the hot tub, pool and outdoor patio to enjoy my day. As I had to wait all day for my daughter, not only did Patricia extend my money ending to noon check out, I then did their Sleepy Sunday Che out. This meant I could stay until at least 4pm so this made my stay very relaxing! There was a wedding there and you never heard a thing! The next day people were accessing a hiking, biking trail out back! I highly recommend using this hotel for a weekend stay. 141$ is a bit pricey plus 30$ for the extra afternoon. I will stay there again if I need to. Thanks for the warm hospitality!

We definitely will be returning to this hotel. We didn't have a chance to use the pool but was nice to hear that it was open until 11pm. I also received text messages asking how are check and stay was. That was a nice added touch!

Hello Kerri B, We're so pleased you got to enjoy almost all aspects of our quaint little hotel. Hopefully you won some money when you went to the Casino. We look forward to seeing you again!

"100% Recommendation"

22/05/2017

Just returned from a weekend conference at this hotel and I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Rooms are large, clean, big screen TV, Kuerig coffee makers (take extra k- cups with you), microwaves, small refrigerators and other great amenities. The food in the dining room is fantastic and the food served at our conference was the same. One small problem - we were all housed on the 2nd floor and the ice machine was on the 1st! If you are fortunate enough to have Patricia O'Brien take your reservation and be on the front desk during your stay, you will have nothing to worry about!

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Hello Shirley K, We are so pleased that you and your group enjoyed your stay with us. We do have extra k-cups available, if you don't want to bring your own. We grouped you on the 2nd floor, because that's where your hospitality room was. We are in the process of getting an ice machine for the second floor, unfortunately you arrived before the plans for it were finalized. Your group was absolutely amazing and we look forward to welcoming you back!

"Scam artists - screwed me over"

16/05/2017

I booked with central reservations for two nights, and was never told it was a non refundable booking on the call. My work travel changed and I called the hotel the day before check in and they told me it looked like i had booked it online with booking.com or a similar site and I must have taken a cheaper rate and it was non refundable. I called Best Western customer service and the first operator confirmed it was a normal booking and saw no reason why it could not be refunded. Then when I spoke the manager they said they would need to retrieve the recorded phone conversation, then they called back and said they couldn't find it, but the email I got said non refundable. I am a PLATINUM member and have stayed at this hotel before, yet they don't seem to care. The hotel was also sold out, I am sure they could have sold this room no problem, but they still wanted to stick me for $300 for not staying there. This small town mentality and lack of customer service is sad to see, they have lost a customer for life, I will never stay at another Best Western again, nor any of my family nor any of my 50 staff for any work travel.

Michelle W, General Manager at Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Good morning Brent, I have refunded the entire amount of 298.72 to your credit card. The information we received from Best Western Central Reservations indicated your reservation was an advanced purchase reservation. If you do choose to stay with us again, please contact us directly. Not only can we offer you a better rate by contacting us directly, we can also avoid any misunderstandings.

The room was very nicely decorated and comfortable, but I was mostly impressed by the cleanliness of our room. The restaurant Grape and Vines was a little overpriced for the quality of food. The cantonese plate has great shrimps, but the mountain of sticky noodles with a very heavy sauce. Was not able to eat that. The location was perfect for us, close to highway 12.

Visiting family in Orillia we opted for this hotel because it is pet friendly. What an awesome experience! The staff was very friendly - appreciated the text message check-ins from the front desk and loved the pet vacation theme - including the sweet little tote bag our puppy got.

We ended up at this hotel because we could not get a room at Rama but this ended up to our advantage. Best Western Plus was less money but more than we could have asked for. A full restaurant with excellent food and above average service complimented this hotel service. The staff at the front desk were very helpful and it was so nice to be greeted with a smile and lively conversation. Every care was given by the staff to be sure our stay was pleasant. I can not say enough good things about the staff and the hotel was well worth the money spent. Over all a great experience. The room was well equipped and clean and the location was better than expected. Only minutes from retail outlets and other restaurants. I can not give an opinion of kid friendly or the hotel laundry as we did not need this service. This family will stay there rather than on site at the casino in the future.

"Worst Western"

19/11/2016

Although the hotel overall was clean, the staff was very unfriendly and seemed to go out of their way to make us feel unwelcome. With everything we did, a new rule was brought to our attention. We stayed as a hockey team and were continually threatened with eviction due to noise. Arrangements were made to rent a common room and the rules and threats kept coming as well as numerous 'check ins' to make sure we weren't breaking any rules. One family was escorted to their room by security immediately after checking in. Another parent was scolded for walking down the hallway with kids because "they were being too loud". One family's room smelled like sewage. There are no towels in the pool area and when you ask the only staff at the front to desk for one you are immediately threatened (not just told) to be charged for it if you don't return it to the front desk when finished. Needless to say, feeling uncomfortable staying here would be an gross understatement.

Michelle W, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Hello bbooola, I sincerely apologize your stay with us has made you think of us as the "Worst Western." It seems you had a bit of a stressful weekend and I'm so sorry. Guests in the past have ruined it for others, which means all of the rules you're referring to have had to be implemented for the protection of all guests and staff. When teams sign in, regardless of the sport, they have to sign our sports team agreement, which is also posted all over the hotel for your convenience. With regard to the pool towels, we now keep them at the desk on the weekends, so we can make sure we get them back from the guests, wash and dry them and have them available again. In the past, guests have taken towels to their rooms, which meant we couldn't clean them and put them back out for our guests. We do hope you will give us another chance, whether with your team or without.

We attended a wedding at the Mariposa on the weekend and came away very impressed. Once you arrive, you do not have to set foot outside until you leave. A very nice chapel right in the complex. Go down the hall to the large reception room for the nights entertainment. All just steps from your own room. They seem to line all your needs through the booking, from catering, DJ, photographer, and a list of other great options. All in all a great experience for everyone. The hotel itself is very clean, the rooms spacious and well equipped. The beds very comfy... No complimentary breakfast included though.

We then heard a young hockey team leaving on the way out for their tournament. Lots of noise from the parking lot and ice machine right outside out room. Perhaps some thought of where a couple could be place when assigning rooms. Mentioned the early wake up due to plumbing as it is controllable but of no concern to front desk.

21/08/2016

My stay was pretty much what I expected. I got the correct room type that I booked (2 Queen Deluxe); which I was worried about, because I booked third-party. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. I was expecting it to be louder because it was full-capacity and had a wedding on-site. I really liked that they had makeup removal wipes in the bathroom. It's the small things that count. :) The pool area was nice, the only thing that wasn't great was that the front desk agent seemed to have to chase down housekeeping a couple times to have the towels replenished. That was my impression anyway, from her phone call to her. The front desk agent was doing the best she could. Just a heads up to someone staying: the pool is very shallow. The "deep" end is 1.2m. It wasn't a big deal and they're certainly not going to change it, so don't be surprised and don't complain about it. Staff was very friendly. The blond woman who sits on a chair (sorry, didn't get her name) is pretty hilarious.

Hi Mookie_care, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We're under new management, so we are working on purchasing more towels for the hotel and the pool area. We're thrilled you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back.

From August 9th. to the 11th. my wife and I participated in the 55+ Senior Summer Games in Midland On. To our disappointment the hotel accommodation however was booked at the Best Western Mariposa Inn in Orillia, 50 km away from the Sport Venue. The disappointment was quickly turned into a very pleasant experience when we were greeted by a friendly receptionist at the Hotel , and what followed is absolutely remarkable. We had a wonderful Stay and enjoyed two delicious Breakfasts and Buffet-Dinners ,Superiorly choreographed by the Food and Beverage Manager < Jose> and his staff. He and his team did a wonderful Job under < at times > trying circumstances. Well done < JOSE > THANK YOU .... Karin and Alfred Kaub

"Nice Getaway Package"

4
31/07/2016

We recently booked the Sunshine Getaway Package (Transaction ID #2553) and enjoyed it very much. From initial booking with Patricia to reception arrival with Taylor, we thought our little getaway package was going to be good and indeed it was. We weren't expecting too much considering the price paid, but we were more than pleasantly surprised. Our room was very clean and quiet, considering we were facing the parking lot. Bed and linens were comfortable. Our room had some renovations done. Bathroom vanity was new and headboards for the beds were also new and added a nice touch. But what impressed us were the staff. Friendly, helpful, and happy to serve you. Refreshing to say the least. Special mention to Norma Jean who works in the Grape and Olive Restaurant. One special lady for sure. Another member of staff is Katherine (don't know correct spelling) who worked the front desk on the afternoon shift. She came to my husband's aid after pushing the emergency button by mistake in the pool area. We laugh about it now, but other establishments wouldn't think too kindly to something like that happening. Apparently he wasn't the first to do such a thing and probably won't be the last either. Katherine was professional about the situation and said for us not to worry. Main thing was our safety. The indoor pool was somewhat of a disappointment. The pool is shallow throughout. Pretty much 3 feet. There is a hot tub and sauna available which is nice. The patio off the pool is nice. It overlooks greenery and fields with a gazebo too. Nice to sit there to dry off from the pool or to sit after having dinner. The food offered at dinner and breakfast was good. Selections were limited but you could go with meals on the menu with a set amount discounted with your voucher. We had a chance to talk with the current Manager, Michelle. We expressed the above views to her and told her she has done a great job with staff and the running of this hotel. She said she has more plans to make it even better. Great attitude! Great work ethics. We would definitely recommend this package to friends and family.

This was the first time that I have stayed at this property. What a great gem. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, the dinner and reception was amazing. Jose at the bar must be complimented for his "old fashioned" service. Thank you. Michelle, the GM has done a wonderful job at having her staff make you feel like you are walking into your home with all staff members greeting you and saying hello. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you all.

We purchased the Sunshine Package as a "staycation" and booked for July 12 - 13. We were pleasantly surprised on arrival at the hotel to find the most helpful receptionist ever. Patricia explained the Sunshine Package to us thoroughly. We decided to have lunch in the Martini and Olive before heading out to the play and were truly astonished at the quality and flavor of our meal. Our expectations were fulfilled with the luscious dinner and cooked to order breakfast. The four of us are planning a return trip in the near future with a stop at The Beast Western Plus.

Michelle W, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Hi lindawK2373BY, Patricia is absolutely amazing and has been with us for 19 years, so she is quite familiar with the Sunshine Package. We have fantastic chefs and even the staff eat at the restaurant quite a bit, we agree it's delicious! We look forward to welcoming you back!

This has been our fourth time staying at this motel and we still enjoy it. In fact this time it appears there have been some upgrades than the last time we were here. The rooms look freshened up,with new flat screen t.v's. The rooms are clean, the lady at the front desk is always so friendly and helpful. The pool is perfect for kids ( that is why we keep coming back to this motel), the only complaint and it is minimal is that there is little to no towels in the pool room other than that the motel has a beautiful park like setting on the property. The motel is located near parks, stores, and restaurants....although there is a restaurant on the premises, we have yet to try it. Next time we come back to Orillia we will be coming to this motel.

Michelle W, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Cheers 737Linda, With 83 rooms on the property, filled with families, it is hard to keep up with the demand for towels. We have added an extra housekeeper in the evening, so the towels can be washed, dried and placed back into the pool area. The restaurant on-site is delicious, with everything from pizza and wings to prime rib - even chicken fingers for the little ones. We look forward to seeing you again!

Stayed in Orillia as part of a group offer. Upon arrival the staff was really helpful and friendly. We quickly got our room and the welcome package including coupons and directions of our planned activities. The salt water pool and hot tub were a nice addition and provided relaxation after a 4 hour road trip. I was quite surprise by the high cost to book an extra night $199; which you would expect in a high end hotel in downtown Toronto. Once again the service of the staff (reception and dining room) was excellent.

Sunshine Getaway had a package at the Best Western in Orillia that we bought. We arrived at 12 noon and our room was ready and picked up the package deal. It included breakfast, lunch, dinner, cruise, museum, and live theatre. The staff and room was very good. It's a full 2 day package which we enjoyed very much, the lunch was at Mariposa Market which included entrée, salad, desert and drink. The deserts were huge and delicious, everything was great, we would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone that is going to Orillia. The cruise was 2-1/4 hours on Simcoe Lake, the weather was wonderful it was very enjoyable. The live theatre was "The last of the Red Hot Lovers" which was comical and good. The dinner was at the Best Western's restaurant which was very tasty including salad or soup, entrée and cheesecake. I would recommend this package to couples and families but especially for couples.

Michelle W, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Hi dance1942, The Sunshine Package is incredibly popular in the summer months, we're so happy you enjoyed it. It's a lot of food for 24 hours, so we do recommend our guests stay for two nights so they can enjoy it all. Hopefully you had a chance to use our swimming pool, since it was so hot this week!

We booked the 'Sunshine Getaway' package with a one night stay at the Best Western Plus Mariposa Inn. This was our second time and we weren't disappointed. Patricia was very welcoming and explained all details. This package is good value. For $149 (+tax) per person, you receive one's night stay, breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus a narrated hour and a half long cruise of Lake Cuchiching as well as a ticket to a local theatre performance. The complimentary appetizers at the theatre -- first evening performance of the show -- was a real bonus! The selection at the Mariposa Market is also wonderful. Thank you Orillia! We will be back.

Just returned from an overnight stay with my sister at this hotel and I have nothing but good things to say about it. Kathy at the registration desk was so pleasant and helpful. She explained about the bus to Casino Rama for $10 return-it leaves and returns several times on concert evenings-even the bus driver was friendly and punctual! Our room was 2 Queen beds and everything was clean, new and the beds very comfortable. We had requested a room overlooking the back garden/pool area and that was what we received-lovely room! We used the pool and patio to sit out in the sun the next day and the staff was so accommodating with a late checkout time. Our breakfast in the dining room was delicious and very reasonable price with attentive service from Joann. It is a bit of a walk to the end rooms on the 2nd floor but well worth it as you get a beautiful view of the gazebo and muskoka chairs outside. Highly recommend this hotel!! Thanks to all the friendly staff!

18/05/2016

My daughter and I stayed here May 5 to 8 for a dance competition. Although the hotel nice and clean, we were disappointed with the night manager. We were sitting in our room with two other dance moms and their daughters. we were chatting and laughing. We get a knock on our door to keep it down as there has been a complaint. We were very surprised as we didn't think we were that loud. So, we continued our conversations. two hours later the manager came back. She told us that it was late and whoever didn't belong in the room had to leave. I was very upset. I know we were not that loud. I told her we were not doing anything wrong and there's no way she could have gotten a complaint. I felt like a kid at camp and we are told 'LIGHTS OUT!!". Later that week we were talking to some friends who told us they saw the manager was going up to each door on that floor and listening for voices/sounds. It was very upset at this point. How dare she come to our room and listen at our door. Shame on your manager for invading our privacy! Next time we'll stay at the comfort inn!!

Michelle W, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Good Day, I am sorry that you felt that Michelle H was acting like a prison guard and honestly that is not the case. We unfortunately did get a couple of complaints from other guests in that area. Our policy is, no noise after 11 pm and we do respectfully try to keep this commitment to keep all our guests happy. I am the General Manager at this location and did receive several complaints from other guests. I have implemented a new policy going forward that if we have a vacant meeting room available to allow guests to utilize this room at no charge.

We stayed here because we were going to a concert at Casino Rama. We ended up at the wrong one (we had booked at the other one and didn't realize it). The lady at the front desk arranged to move our booking to this one instead. It ended up saving us 50 dollars as well! We had a standard room. It was everything you'd expect from this type of hotel. Nothing fancy but nice crisp and tidy. The bathroom had shampoo and conditioner, lotion, and two soaps. The shower was great (but the temperature control was a bit confusing). We went to the pool and hot tub. It was not busy, only one other group. They left when we came in. The sauna was okay but we didn't realize that there is a switch to turn it on. I'm sure we would have really liked it. Our room was at the back of the hotel near an exit. It was first floor and we didn't hear anyone else in the halls or neighbours. The employees were all very friendly. We will absolutely stay here again.

There are lots of easily accessible plugs on each side of the bed and at the desk. We stayed in a King bed room which also had a fridge, microwave and Kuerig coffee maker. Lots of towels and soaps in the bathroom. The fitness room had new equipment and machines and there is also a swimming pool and hot tub. (The swimming pool is all shallow). We also used the shuttle to The Casino which runs on weekend (evenings/night) which saved us from having to drive or pay for a taxi. All around perfect stay. I will stay here again on my next trip up.

The room was clean, comfortable and staff friendly. Inviting lobby and reasonably priced. Close to fast food but no other amenities. Didn't eat in dining room as other plans. Beware of the additional tax charge. It is not a mandatory tax therefore you have to request it to be removed. Other than that, it was a good night.

Hello Clean, Comfortable, friendly. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about our hotel. I just wanted to let you know that we have a fitness room, huge pool, hot tub and sauna at our location. It is to bad that you were not able to use them, maybe next time. The other tax that you mentioned is a resort fee tax. Thanks and hope to see you soon. Michelle Weber General Manager

The staff over charge on the deposit by $130, the fireplace was just a space heater, there was no in room movies as stated on the website. over all bad experience. They definitely advertise the rooms to having an actual fire place and this was the selling feature that made us book the room however it was a lie. the large tub was just a regular bath tub. And there were no in room movies.

This is a very good hotel, our experience probably enhanced by a low occupancy (Sunday to Monday in late November). Good location (assuming you're driving anyway), large/clean rooms, pool much larger than usually for a hotel, pretty quiet wall heating/cooling unit. Breakfast was not included; the adjacent restaurant + bar (you don't have to get outside) is quite good (at the time opened from 6:30 to 10 AM, then 5 to 9 PM). A nice area outside is probably intended for weddings. Very good choice for the area.

Lots of parking and convenient entries into Hotel with only 2 levels. The elevator is near the Lobby, so if entering through another hotel door, you may have to carry your luggage up the stairs. As long as you aren't carrying a lot of weight, there is quick and easy access to your room. Great location with everything within a 10-15 minute drive away. Nice looking gazebo in the outside courtyard to enjoy in the summer and a pathway at the back for some walking exercise also.

My fiance and myself chose Best Western for our wedding venue. Kandas did an excellent job on all details. From the ceremony to dinner. I still have guests telling me how much fun they had, and how amazing and how much food there was. It was such a relaxing day for me, all I had to do was hangout and wait for go time. Wedding planning is stressful, so when I do not have to decorate or worry about how much food there is, or how to organize the ceremony, it is fantastic, and a huge load off of my shoulders. Hats off to the entire best western team! Amanda & Rik.

We went to see a favourite music group, Styx Friday November 13th and had difficulty finding a room because we booked last minute. We live over an hour and a half from Orillia. But the front desk managed to squeeze us in. What a great hotel. Very clean. Hotel has undergone a recent facelift to qualify for the "Plus" rating Best Western maintains. I was able to get a Starbucks quality coffee in the restaurant. And the management, namely Steve O. was so polite and welcoming. Excellent experience. Will we return? Absolutely. There were children staying down the hall from us for a hockey tournament and I thought uh oh.... noise... but once we went in our room didn't hear anything. Very efficient check in. Fantastic friendly service in dining room and at front desk. Thanks again Steve... or should I say Stevemazing!

This hotel is a great place for business travellers, families and even snowmobilers. It's located near Highway 11 and is adjacent to the abandoned rail line now used as a snowmobile trail in winter. The trail is great for walking or running during the rest of the year. The recent renovations have refreshed and modernized the hotel. The indoor pool and hot tub are great for relaxing at the end of the day. The onsite restaurant is great for breakfast or dinner. If you choose to go offsite for dinner, there are a few options within walking distance.

We stayed in the King Suite and I'm glad we got the upgrade because I don't want to think what the regular room would have been like. We had to ask for soap as there was no soap, shampoo, conditioner or kleenex in our room. When we stopped by the desk and asked for soap they wanted us to take it with us instead of delivering it to the room. We tried to have dinner in the restaurant, but we didn't have a reservation so the girl just left us waiting without letting us know if we would get a table. We waited almost 10 minutes and she hadn't come back so we left. The shower head pulled away from the wall almost 2 inches when I tried to adjust it. The hot water took 3 minutes to even get warm. Holes in the robes. And then we were startled awake at 6:30 am when the person in the next room was showering. The plumbing sounded like an earthquake even rattling the dishes and doors on the kitchenette. When we mentioned it at the desk during our immediate check out, we were informed that they would let maintenance know again (clearly it's not the first time) and after all it IS a 45 year old building! The woman was rude and acted like we should expect problems. We will NEVER go back.

"Nice rooms - Terrible service! Won't Go Back."

02/11/2015

I stayed with my daughter for a group event a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed the room. It's well appointed, clean and up to date. However, I am really disappointed in the service from the staff including the flippant front desk clerk, the dishonest cleaning staff and most importantly the GM. We left in a hurry and checked out leaving something important in the room (there is absolutely no doubt that it was there because we deliberately put it aside not to forget it!). I called a few hours later to let the staff know and to find out how I could get it back. I even suggested I drive the hour and half out there to get it. I was told that the cleaning staff didn't find it (impossible) and when I suggested in a nice way that perhaps there's a misunderstanding and asked what should we do about it, I was instructed to leave a voice message for the GM. It was a Sunday evening. I did leave a friendly but concerned message and have not heard a word back in over a week! Not only are the staff dishonest, the GM, Stevedoesn't care about their guests enough to even call them back. We stay in Orillia for a number of reasons at least twice per year. I will not return to this hotel for that reason alone. The item wasn't terribly valuable but it was important to my daughter. There are other examples of poor service but this one really bothers me. Best Western Couchiching isn't as modern but the service is amazing and I would recommend it hands down over Mariposa. We'ves stayed there a few times and will go back for sure.

Michelle W, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Thank you for your review regarding your stay with us at BEST WESTERN PLUS Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre. I apologize you did no receive a call back as you indicated, I will follow up with our AGM, as this is not common practice for him or the hotel. I have investigated into the lost item and spoken with the staff involved. As soon as you called the hotel, the room was checked for the item, and nothing was found left behind. In addition, the Guest Service Agent that you spoke with did also personally check the room a second time, and reviewed the lost and found, as well as the housekeeping carts. Unfortunately, there was no record of the item being found. On Monday, we did follow up with the Housekeeping Manager and the Housekeeper that cleaned the room, and both have indicated that the item was not in the room on her entrance to service the room on Sunday after check out. I understand your daughters personal connection to the lost item, and can imagine her disappointment losing her special item. I do apologize that you feel that there is dishonesty regarding your item, as this is not the case. The staff did take immediate action to try and locate the item and if it was found, we would have assisted you in having it returned. Please feel free to contact me directly at 705-325-9511 at ext 5300. Once again, my apologies that the lost item and its follow up resulted in such an unpleasant stay and over all impression of the hotel.

Extremely friendly service, spotless rooms and comfortable bed at a very fair price. A good basic place to stay if you are in Orillia for a few days. I have stayed here several times and have always had a great experience. One thing I noted this time was the quality of the sheets was a bit basic for my liking. I haven't noticed this before. I don't know if there was a recent change. The location is very handy for downtown Orillia and is close to most of the big chain eateries so there is lots of available choice. Note - I have given it 4 stars because of the overall easiness, friendliness and cleanliness not because I view it as a luxury property. Also note, there's no view. It's just off the main road but is quiet.

The Mariposa Inn (Best Western) in Orillia was a delight! We had finished our annual fall leaf tour and had been to the nearby Casino Rama and were ready to just take some R&R. The check-in process was fun... I enjoyed talking to the front desk staff about our trip and the amenities of the hotel. The room was near the front as we had requested. The Grape & Olive Lounge/Restaurant had great food and the service was fun and friendly. The morning breakfast (not free) was hot and tasty and even though there was a bit of a wait due to a short-staff situation, everything stayed positive for us. We chose to sit at the restaurant bar, which worked for us and for the staff. All in all, a wonderful experience at this Inn.

Stayed here for a few weeks while in Orillia on business. Front desk service was fast and efficient. The female manager was extremely friendly and seemed to love her job. She was very entertaining. Hotel seemed to have recent updates in the guestroom bathrooms, which made it more modern and comfortable. One downside was the house keeping. First night there I noticed lots of brown short curly hairs in the bath tub which were not mine and were disgusting. Then I noticed the "clean" towels in the bathroom had lots of long hairs already on them, again not my own. Kleenix and toilet paper wouldn't get refilled, garbage left in room, and constant problems with asking for clean towels to only get more towels with other people's hair on them. If it hadn't been for the awful house keeping I would of given another star, but it left me feeling uneasy and grossed out during the trip. Be advised that wifi is very slow and the password changes constantly, without hotel staff advising you.

Our son and daughter in law held their wedding at the Best Western Mariposa Inn on Oct. 3,2015.(Allen /Bird Wedding) I must say everything went off without a hitch. Most of the guests stayed over and they were all very impressed with the organization of the wedding celebration. The room was beautifully decorated according to the color scheme that the bride chose. The buffet food was excellent.. We had a roast pig along with chicken, pastas, salads roasted potatoes and vegetables.The DJ Kandas recommended was awesome. He played a good mixture of music, which kept everyone dancing the whole evening. The hotel management must acknowledge all the hard work that Kandas, the wedding coordinator put into this. She is such an asset to your team. Be sure to give her a commendation. Thank you to everyone involved.

The restaurant serves good food and we were served a breakfast buffet several mornings due to the hotel being fully booked. I would stay here again.
