"Business Trip Ontario"

"Watch what you pour into your food stuffs: MOLDS on breakfast milk"

2
22/10/2018

Duration of stay: October 10 to October 18, 2018 (8 days) Was in this hotel during my regular work rotation as a consultant in Kincardine, Ontario. It was early in the morning, on my fifth day, having breakfast. As usual, I started preparing my cereals and my coffee. Took a handful of the little milk container from the cooler and started opening them automatically and pouring them into my cereals and coffee as usual when I suddenly caught a whiff of a nasty, sour odor. I looked down and to my disgust, looking back at me is a green, floating mold on the milk I am about to pour. I opened the next container and to my dismay, it was also stale and moldy. Felt like throwing up at that time as the smell was really bad. I called the attention of the Hotel Manager and showed her the molds on the surface of the milk (see the pictures I took as evidence). She quickly grabbed them from the table and went away without saying much. My wife who was with me at that time, and myself threw all our foods in the garbage and was not able to eat anymore. The manager on duty came back with a small bowl of milk products and said, "These are all new. They are not expired." She then left in a hurry without saying much. She is the kind who did not show much concern for what just happened. No acceptable apology nor a demonstration of proactive action that something was seriously done to address such serious situation. Nothing at all! It was just another day...She's the grouchy type. For the rest of our stay, in spite of the fact that its part of what we've paid to stay in that hotel, we avoided breakfast there like a plague for the rest of our stay. We were doubly worried that we might have ingested other spoiled breakfast foods and dairy products in the several days prior to our discovery that breakfast supplies were not being monitored and inspected for quality. I warned others I know staying in the hotel to be extra careful. Lessons being shared: 1) Be aware with what you put into your foods and drinks, and into your mouth. Always check expiry dates of foods and milks, and observe closely what you have in front of you. Note that many does thing without much thought to it. We're all used to doing the same thing over and over again, it becomes automatic and we all lose the power of observation that can dictate if we get sick or not. Discovery: 1) Hotel is old. You can actually smell the ancient aroma as soon as you get in, walk the hallway, and most especially, enter the room. Overall theme color is earth color-brown, dark brown and bright brown, carpet and all. 2) Someone told us that it was previously a funeral home several years ago before it was converted to a hotel.

"Comfortable Bed and Quiet Room"

4
01/10/2018

Staff were very friendly, the bed was comfortable and the room was spotless. Unfortunately, the very thick duvet required one to run the air conditioner at night or become way too hot. I was also very slippery and slid off the bed. The sink tap leaked when turned on high. However, the manager responded to my review and said that rooms were being renovated and bed coverings were being changed; a great bit of news! After we figured out the "automated" cutlery dispenser and found the cream etc. we had a very pleasant breakfast. We would return, especially if they replace the heavy duvets!

"Wonderful experience at the Governor's Inn"

06/09/2018

A very clean guest room with a mattress firm enough to provide a wonderful night's sleep. Even though there was a pre-wedding reception in the facility that night, noise inside or out was not an issue. The breakfast assortment offered the perfect mix of nutrition to provide a good start to the day. The serving area was a bit congested but there was ample seating. The best part of the stay though was the staff who were efficient, friendly and welcoming. In fact, we forgot our tablet in the room and only remembered it the next evening in another city. But by that time we had already had two messages that our tablet had been found and they took the time to return it to us by mail, safe and sound. Customer service lives at the Governor's Inn!

Gail G, General Manager at Best Western Plus Governor's Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the nice compliments I will be sure to pass them along to my team. I am glad that your tablet made it back safe and sound. We hope to see you again sometime . Gail G.M

We stayed overnight here and were very comfortable. It's a short walk to downtown and there's a Tims across the street if needed. Breakfast was fine - standard « included breakfast ». The room was clean and comfortable. The bed was nice and we had a great sleep. Staff was friendly, helpful, and courteous. We'd definitely stay here again with no hesitation.

21/08/2018

Hotel staff were very accommodating and we were allowed to have an earlier check in time. A wedding brought us to the area. Would definitely book this hotel again to explore the surrounding town. The breakfast in the morning was amazing!

"Trouble sleeping"

15/08/2018

The room was great as far as beeing clean and the bed was great. The air conditioning system was noisy and needed maintenance. The location is greta for eating establishments and shopping. We liked the room other than the noise problem.

"Overall Good"

3
07/08/2018

Overpriced for sure. Staff was awesome, clean room, decent breakfast. But not worth $200 a night for sure. I payed that amount for a hotel in Toronto with a pool and with a beautiful view and didn't woke up in the middle of the night because of the noise outside my door. WiFi connection is bad as well.

"Always Stay Here When In Kincardine"

5
06/08/2018

Whenever we visit Kincardine, we always stay here as it is always clean and the staff are very accommodating. It is easily found, just off the highway and it is very easy to find your way down to the lakefront. Coffee and cookies are usually available to enjoy during the day In the lobby. A hot buffet breakfast is available to enjoy in the morning in the dining room. We would certainly recommend this hotel.

Gail G, General Manager at Best Western Plus Governor's Inn, responded to this review
Thank you very much for your kind review of our hotel, we are glad you enjoy staying with us and hope to see you again soon

"Clean, quiet and comfortable!!"

5
31/07/2018

We found our recent stay at this hotel to be a great experience. Friendly, welcoming staff, clean and quiet room, very comfortable bed. The breakfast offered was beyond the normal hotel breakfast....fresh cooked scrambled eggs, breakfast wraps, sausages, potatoes along with the standard cold cereals, pastries, breads and Belgian waffle maker. Overall, a great experience and value for the money.

"Good weekend stay"

5
24/07/2018

The hotel staff was freindly both at check in and check out. The breakfast had lots of cold and hot items to choice from. The room was clean and neat. If you stay on a Saturday night make sure you see the drum and bag pipe band that marches done the main street (queen st) of Kincardine at 8:00 pm.

"Some room for improvement..."

3
13/07/2018

On the positive side, the employees were very helpful and efficient, specially during check in. The cleaning staff did their best also, and nearly everything was working as expected. On the negative side: - the internet just does not work. Not acceptable for business trips - Worst towels ever. Next time I will bring paper napkins and it will be an improvement. - I know I can't expect 1000-thread cotton bedsheets but I would have settled for new ones. Those ones had a history, a long and troubled one... - Noisy room, due to the old building structure probably. Now I understand why they provide earplugs instead of mints at bed time

"Worst Western: Booked Online? Too Bad: Pay Twice or No Room"

1
20/06/2018

A friend and I decided to take a spur of the moment overnight trip, and booked a room through a popular online booking company for a room here... only to get there and be told that they were feuding with said booking company, and so would not be honouring the booking. Bear in mind, our credit card had been charged, and as it was the day OF the booking, the company would not offer us a refund. Rather than honouring the booking which was paid in full, they asked us to pay AGAIN, and try and wrangle a refund for the previous booking ourselves. Best Western: your issues with your booking companies are not my problem, and its outrageous that you were prepared to make us pay twice for the same room, rather than work out this issue with the company yourself. What should have happened: our booking should have been honoured, our credit card should have been placed on file for security purposes, while you worked out this issue with your booking company. We were not offered ANY solution from the hotel, except that we pay a second time. Bear in mind, we were 2 women, over three hours from home at this point, at 4pm. Needless to say, we found another hotel. Best Western won't see any business from either of us ever again.

Gail G, General Manager at Best Western Plus Governor's Inn, responded to this review
I would like to apologize for the inconvenience that was caused regarding your online booking through the third party booking agency. The front desk clerk who worked that morning made every attempt possible to resolve the issue before you arrived. The clerk was unable to solve this issue, due to no response from the third party booking site. Again I apologize.

"Better Choices Nearby......."

2
10/05/2018

I have had occasion to stay in Kincardine several times over the last year. I normally stay elsewhere but thought I would give this place a chance. Check in was smooth and front desk staff was friendly and helpful. My room was on the first floor. The room seemed very dingy and dark with a bit of a musty scent. Not a normal experience for a Best Western. In general I would have to say the hotel has a tired feel to it. There is no bar or restaurant which is a little annoying but not a deal breaker. The pillows were dreadful and the bed not comfortable at all. It was only one night but not one that I will not repeat. There are two better options directly across the street.

27/12/2017

We had to stay here last minute due to the weather. We had our dog with us and luckily they have dog rooms which you pay an extra $20 so not bad. It was clean and beds are very comfy. 1 susgestion is to get rid of the full length mirror as our dog kept barking at it thinking there was another dog. But our dog could just be stupid. Full on free breakfast the next morning, scrambled eggs, bacon, home fries, toast. Option for cereal lots of muffins and pastries, lots of juice and coffee. All in all this place came through in a tight spot and would definitely go back if needed.

We stayed at the hotel in mid October and had really enjoyed it. The buffet breakfast was convenient and well maintained. The rooms were quiet and comfortable.

"It's a Best Western - not sure about the "PLUS""

4
09/10/2017

Stayed here in October 2017 on a trip up to the Bruce Peninsula. The hotel is not a "Plus" to me, despite having that in the name - first impressions of the hotel are great, but the room left much to be desired. Two of the towels folded on the rack when we checked in were dirty with gray/brown stains, and I nearly fell out of the leather desk chair when the back nearly fell off. This place needs some TLC! The WiFi was not fast enough for satisfactory Netflix browsing either. The breakfast provided was good, the room was comfortable, and there is an EV charger at the Canadian Tire directly across the street, all positives. The worst part by far was the noise - I woke up both nights due to the noise from the hallway. The doors and walls must be paper thin. I would stay here again, but not for the price I paid.

Clean, comfortable rooms. Friendly and effective staff. This is an attractive building, sort of classical "Williamsburg" style, lots of parking space. The restaurant is great, both for a quick buffet breakfast (quality food, choices) and for a nice dinner as well. This is one of the best restaurants in the town. Value is very good.

"'PLUS' Poseur..."

30/09/2017

Not up to 'Plus'-yet. Staff is a mix of the friendly and the off-hand, officious; multitaskers in evidence.. On check-in with a BW card, did NOT appreciate the 'security deposit' of a $100 required: a low-level motel requirement. Room was large, comfy but a bit dark and dowdy. TV choices were excellent. Breakfast is very basic with ersatz or carby items.. Phone didn't work. Good enough overall - but not a BW 'PLUS - yet. (My other motel card is for Hampton Inns.)

"Relaxing, comfortable, roomy, clean, well appointed, and more. Wasn't disappointed."

30/09/2017

The Best Western Plus Governor's Inn, in Kincardine, is conveniently located at a stop lighted intersection on the main highway, but the speed there is reduced, and the hotel is on an elevated plot, so there is no noticeable road noise. Entry and exit from the hotel is without obstacle or incident. Parking is generous. The hotel appears to have been recently completely refurbished, as there were no signs of wear and tear. Staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. The room was larger than I expected, well appointed with a larger fridge and armours than I expected. Cleanliness was top rate. Everything shone. The shower did not get the floor wet. The toilet paper was soft! ( You don't get that everywhere! Thank you Best Western. ) Our room included a window that actually opened ( 3rd floor ), though we didn't due to the heatwave. The beds were comfortable. Our experience was quiet and relaxing. The coffee in the restaurant is worth bringing back to the room. ( We didn't have time for breakfast, so can't comment there, nor did we have time to explore the other amenities. ) Checkout staff were friendly and efficient, and sent us off with a smile. I was told that this hotel frequently sells out. Call ahead. We lucked in just stopping on the way.

We are always satisfied with the cleanliness, the staff and the comfort of the beds at Best Western in Kincardine. For the price the hotel could offer amenities such as a pool and hot tub. The breakfast is okay, but does not offer vegetarian items. The coffee and juice is very good. The toaster is a dinosaur!

We planned our trip to Bruce Peninsula at the last minute and were able to book this hotel for a decent price.

We spent a weekend in Governor's Inn at Kincardine with a group of friends. This was our first visit to both the city and the hotel, and I have to say we returned amazed ... The Governor's Inn is a great choice for those visiting the area. Plenty of parking room, a small fridge in the room, fascinating water pressure in the shower and a perfect continental breakfast helped making our stay unforgettable.

We have been dining at the BW restaurant for many years but not so much lately. This was our third visit this year and we were very pleased with our experiences. We shared a salad app and chef kindly gave us individual plates for no extra cost as some places do. Each plate was very tasty and larger than many other places serve. Lots of choices for entree but we both chose pasta. Very well prepared and delicious. Service was excellent. We will be back.

I love the hotel very much. It was very clean and the Staff are very friendly. I love their decorations. One thing, I do not like was the noise in the 3rd floor. It was very noisy until 2 a.m. in the morning. I guess the hotel has poor insulation because we can hear the noise from the 3rd floor and its very disappointing.

While this is an older hotel, the rooms are clean and well kept. Bathrooms are definitely updated. The staff is very friendly and go out of their way to make your stay special. We enjoyed the breakfast and there was a nice selection of hot and cold items to choose from. An extra special touch was the homemade cookies at the front desk. We would definitely stay here again.

while laying down before going out to an event, because my husband had worked all night, the sound system came on blaring and woke him. Later when we returned from our event at 11:30pm, we couldn't sleep because of the loud music and vibrating floor...we were told by the front end clerk, they had no other rooms and it should go to late.

In accurate advertising of hotel, expensive lousy expensive food, rude staff, wish I had never stayed here. IMHO if you advertise something as being "available" and it is not then that is misleading advertising.

My boyfriend and I were in town for a friends wedding and had a lovely time. The staff were friendly, and the rooms clean. Where they lost points is breakfast. The breakfast itself was great with both hot (eggs, waffles) and cold (cereal, yoghurt) options. But, no one told us about it. I had read online that breakfast was included so I asked the receptionist when/where: she made no mention of it prior to me asking. You could easily miss out on it if you didn't know about it ahead of time. So, be aware breakfast is included.

Stayed in room 358 that overlooked the back parking lot, no big deal. I don't really think there would be an awesome view from any room. What is awesome? Many things. Staff, excellent. Friendly, courteous and helpful. Our room had a king bed with two armoires that had plenty of room for clothes to be put in drawers or hung. One armoire had a small fridge and microwave in it. I liked how it was hidden and wasn't just placed against a wall looking obstrusive. We stayed for 2 nights. Cleanliness of the room was impeccable. I am the type to look in the spots that I think that would not have been cleaned consistently and it was clean. Very impressed. The bathroom was very large with lots of counter space. We ate breakfast once and it was certainly enough to get us on our way. Scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, waffles, yogurt, oatmeal, baked goods. Missed one morning breakfast because the bed was so comfy we just wanted to keep sleeping lol. It is conveniently located across from a Sobeys and just down the street is a Shoppers Drug Mart and LCBO. And only a short 2 minute drive will take you downtown where you can park and enjoy the town with its many shops and restaurants. If we were to return to Kincardine we would definitely stay here again.

I spent two nights at the Governor's Inn and it is a very acceptable place to stay, with friendly staff and a decent room with a well-sized bathroom. Everything worked well, although the internet connection seemed more fractious than it needed to be. There is a restaurant in the place but most people seem to go out to town for dinner to enjoy the waterfront. These days, hotels compete to provide a good breakfast with lots of variety and this is a good offering. The hot breakfast included scrambled eggs with sausages. The eggs were good, but I would not recommend the sausages, bacon would be a better option, for me at least.

Very enjoyable stay in Kincardine. The Governor's Inn is a pleasant place to stay. There is a beautiful flowering tree in the entrance to the hotel, making it very attractive. The service is good and there were no surprises. The only downside might be the noise from people walking around in the room above us. This did stop at a reasonable time; so did not cause any problems. The meal we had had at the Inn was most likely the best I have had in some time. The presentation was beautiful and set the mood for the excellent taste of the food. The chef is obviously a "gem." and a great asset to the Inn. I dealt with the hotel staff on a few occasions prior to arrival and found them to be very professional and helpful. I was quite impressed as this is not always the case with front of house staff.

For our Easter weekend, we jumped into the car on Good Friday and headed out along backroads looking for conservation areas that we hadn't ever visited. Late in the day we started looking for a place to spend the night. The Governor's Inn in Kincardine came up on TripAdvisor and I'm glad we chose this hotel. It was lovely and quiet and the breakfast in the morning was satisfying and sustained well. We will certainly return to this hotel.

The hotel is older -I would guess 1970 or 80's.It has the most wonderful collection of vintage furniture in its public areas. Our room was adequate for our needs though when all was quiet you could hear footsteps but in the night it was very quiet. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We had dinner at the restaurant which was superb. The chef even came and checked on us. Again the staff was very attentive. The side entrance was accessible and an elevator was available. We did not have the accessible room so I can not comment on it.

This review is for the Restaurant at Best Western in Kincardine. Another couple and ourselves dined at this restaurant within the past week. All four of us ordered different entrees as well as appetizer or salad/soup and everyone was very impressed with their meals. The menu is a new one for the hotel and the chef did an excellent job on all dishes. Tub chairs were totally comfy and we were not rushed out the door after eating as can sometimes happen even in "classy" venues. We would not hesitate to go back or to recommend this restaurant to others.

With new and more cookie-cutter hotels popping up in Kincardine ON, it's nice to know the Governor's Inn is still in business! The staff is awesome, very welcoming, and the hotel is comfy and cosy. While in the restaurant, I overheard a couple of locals say, "this restaurant is Kincardine's best kept secret. I'm glad they don;t advertise more". It's true, the restaurant is fine home cooking! Best spaetzle with mushroom gravy I've ever had (sorry Mom)!

06/10/2016

We chose the Best Western for a last minute one day trip to Kincardine. The foyer was empty. The one staff member on duty was new to the job - it took us nearly half an hour to get signed in after she had called for assistance. By this time there were two or three other staff members at the desk. The room assigned to us as we travel with our poodle was adequate but outdated - the huge "fine art" on the wall was overwhelming for a relatively small room. The bed was comfortable. However, the only time we realized that breakfast was included was when we drove away in the morning and happened to see the huge sign on the top of the building "free breakfast included". At no time did any of the staff members mention to us that breakfast was included when we signed in, nor when we booked on the telephone. We were the only guests checking in at that time. We did not see any mention in the room either. Surely it was the duty of the reception staff to make sure guests were aware of all the hotel facilities. We ate breakfast in town.

Very clean and comfortable place to stay. We had a very comfortable room but wished that they had King size beds. The bed other than being small was comfy. There was a fridge and micro. We enjoyed the on site restaurant where the food was fabulous! Probably the best artichoke dip we have ever had! We also had Lamb and steak, both of which were also fabulous. The chef Peter even came out to talk to us and shared the recipe for his artichoke dip. We had the breakfast in the morning which was included in the room price. It was fresh and hot. Great job by all at this hotel. Would recommend A stay here anytime. Thanks.

Although there is no pool, the Davidson Centre is a safe walk just down the road. AMAZING new splash pad and climbing structures. In the summer, with Station Beach a short drive away, I would not consider another accommodation in Kincardine.

10/07/2016

Staff were very professional and eager to assist in any way they could. However, we paid $20 to have my pug puppy stay with us. We were not allowed to leave her in the room crated so that we could go into the hotel restaurant for dinner or breakfast. There was no table in the room so we couldn't eat dinner there. We were forced to leave the hotel, with the dog, and find a place with a patio that would permit dogs. We had breakfast in our room but, as stated above, there was no table so we had to eat with our plates on our knee. The dog was not on any of the furniture, she was walked outside and we couldn't even leave her in her crate. What was the $20 fee for? Furthermore, if you require dogs to be walked "in the lane out back", the grass needs to be cut. My dog couldn't go into the grass to do her business because the grass was too deep. I was also very worried that ticks could be living in the grass and humans are affected by them as well as animals. Most disappointing experience as we have stayed in other Best Western Hotels with our pup and have never had such an experience. Won't stay here again.

My husband and I have stayed at a variety of hotels over the last few years of travelling and we both agreed that the BW Kincardine was superior- from the friendly staff to the clean comfortable room- it was little touches like the shampoo dispensers in the shower that made this stay one of our best!

"could do better-easily!"

02/07/2016

Generally speaking very good but the lack of a microwave in the room would be a deal breaker for me next time seeing other hotels make that provision. Clearly this is an easy fix and the cost to the hotel could be quickly recouped by a few dollars on the price of the room. The extra amenity would make a big difference to the overall experience as it provides a major convenience.

The property itself is pretty clean and close to downtown, the lake and restaurants. The walls seem pretty thin as there's a lot of noise from the hallway and floors above. I was upgraded to the executive suite which is very nice and comfortable, considering the noise conditions already mentioned. The wifi is completely unreliable. If you're coming here on business and rely on internet access you will be disappointed with frequent drops, IP conflicts and the inability to connect at all. Didn't try the restaurant but The Bruce on Queen Street is highly recommended. If you don't need internet access this is a pretty decent hotel. If you're here on business you might want to consider the new Marriot TownPlace suites across the street.

Got a room here because we were visiting family in the area over the holidays. The hotel seemed deserted, however, rates were still high. Room was small, yet cozy. The beds were wonderfully comfortable. The hotel seemed quiet, again we were the only ones there. The downside was the cleanliness of the room was an issue. The carpet needed to be vacuumed as we found toenail clippings around the room. Gross!!!! Only stay here if the holiday inn across the street is booked.

I stay here whenever I have business at the nearby power plant. The hotel has just undergone renovations and looks very nice. My rate included a hot breakfast. You can also order off the menu. The food quality was very good. There is an exercise room but I did not use it on this stay. Free wifi was adequate and worked fine. TV provides about 50 channels of local and network and cable selections. Overall, the room was very nice, clean and functional. There is ample parking in front and out back with a rear lot entrance that locks at midnight. The elevator is located by the rear entrance. The room is equipped with a microwave and mini fridge which I stocked from the local Sobeys grocery store across the street. There's also a Tim Hortons, Boston Pizza and other Restaurants very close by. Gas stations also are less than a mile away.

I checked in on August 24th and stayed one night. The bathroom had been updated and the mattress was great but furniture horrible. Room smelled like a wet dog when we opened the door. Luckily I had some spray and the window opened so we were able to get rid of the smell. Sit on the couch and you are almost on the floor. Bad springs! Offers free Internet but we had service for maybe 3 minutes total during the 16 hours were were there. (I note that other reviewers have had similar problems.)They kept rebooting the routers but it did no good. Not enough Internet service for a hotel when people now carry multiple devices. Like the furniture, it was OK in the 1990's but this is 2015. Night clerk was very nice but busy fielding complaints about the internet. . . . . Two while I was standing at the front desk and I overheard another when I called the front desk and was asked to wait a minute. Next morning the manager denied there was any problem. I mentioned the problem to one of the housekeeping staff and she said: "Yes, they have been having a lot of complaints." Breakfast was great and the lady handling it made sure everyone was satisfied. She did a great job and the food was tasty. When I did the Best Western review, Gail, the manager, answered and claimed there were only 2 complaints. Oh well! I personally heard 3 plus mine. Maybe the staff doesn't report them because they know nothing will happen. Worst hotel I have been in for many years. I am retired and stay in hotels 40 to 50 nights a year. I usually find Best Western Plus Hotels to be good. This is certainly the exception. If you are going to stay in Kincardine, do yourself a favor and stay at another hotel.

"Not the best"

We found it over priced for what we got. The front desk girl was not helpful. The wi fi in our room would not let me on my I pad. We were tired from driving most of the day, so wanted to eat in. There was nothing appealing to us on your menu and it was expensive. There were no restaurant names or numbers to call out for delivery. The mattress was very hard. We have stayed at other Best Westerns, this was the worst.

The room was clean and the bed and pillows were comfortable .What I do not understand H I left a note about the towels ( I put them in the tub as I did not want anyone to slip on the floor ) and left a tip I came back an one hour later and the towels and tip were gone but the room was not cleaned . I had left the card on the bed so that sheets did not have to be changed Bath mats for the shower might be a good idea as I slipped and this was a reason for very wet towels .I was in #225 I also had mold in the bar fridge and it was quickly looked after as the guest before had unplugged the fridge .
