This lovely, old fashioned hotel is a 5 minute walk to Centennial Park on the St. Clair river. Very nice gym and large, indoor swimming pool. Staff are exceptionally nice. My son was impressed that they had preserved a historic well. The only negative is that they no longer have a restaurant but there are places within walking distance.

We stay at the Drawbridge Inn regularly. We've been going there for the last five years or so. The staff are courteous and professional. The rooms are clean and comfortable. There's plenty of parking, and the Inn is right next to the beautiful St. Claire Riverwalk.

My husband and I came to town for a show at the Station Music Hall and decided to stay here for a change, and we are not disappointed at all! After a speedy check in by the sweet Hillary, we decided to inspect the room and just love it! Haven't tried breakfast yet, but so far we are loving it... More

Well-maintained, clean quaint hotel which is a bit dated in some areas. Rooms were spacious and clean although the safe is located in a odd spot in the middle of the room and there was a burn from the iron in the carpet.

This hotel must have been charming in it's hey day, but not so much now. English Tudor with beautiful stone floors. It needs a facelift inside. Room was clean. The door frame looked like someone had kicked it in at one time and had been splintered, but it locked.

Older hotel in Downtown Sarnia. Staff were very friendly and room clean. Fluffy Ikea towels. Continental breakfast nothing special. Thought it was great value for the price - we booked on-line not through the hotel. Walking distance to lakeshore. Gave a very good rating based on value for money.

It is a unique old style building and few steps away from lake-shore. The rooms were clean and worth the money we paid for. We booked it only a week in advance and this was the best deal we could get at the peak of summers. The hotel staff is very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was okay but again... More
