The Algonquin Hotel
Reviewed 15 May 2010

I stayed at the Algonquin for a weekend and found it to be an all around good experience. I was very impressed with the accomodations for the price. The room was comfortable and clean with a television and shower. The food was good and also reasonably priced. The hotel is located in downtown Sault Ste Marie and was in walking distance of everywhere I needed to go. There was also a very impressive night club on the main floor with live entertaiment that I enjoyed. For a comfortable and affordable stay I would recomend the Algonquin hotel.

We arrived at the Algonquin hotel in April of 2010. We had booked it after searching around on the internet. was very impressed with the location of the hotel. Centrally located in the heart of downtown Sault Ste. Marie in a historic building it was reasonably priced and within walking distance of almost everything to see in the city. Internet was priced normal as well, little bar in the hotel . only thing was no elevator so literally you gotta go with a proper backpack instead of a suitcase like i did lol. Other than that I will certainly highly recommend it (even though the new owners are in the process of renovating the rooms)

The staff was very friendly and helpful in giving directions to the sights to see while we where in town.

I would highly recommend staying there and am looking forward to going back again in the fall for the fall train color run.

The Algonquin is the worst possible place I could have stayed in Sault Ste Marie. I was meeting up with some friends in the city and going across to SSM, Michigan for a night of partying and leaving the next day. I found the Algonquin on a hostel website and booked it because it was cheap ($20-$30), and I am accustomed to staying in hostels. I arrived thinking I was on skid row. The building was old and dilapidated; the carpets and furniture filthy. I think it's the kind of place people rent by the hour and at the last minute because I arrived at the reception desk and they said "Oh yes, you're the guy with the reservation". When I climbed the steps up to my room on the 3rd floor, I couldn't help but feel drunk - the floor was slanted so much you could drop a marble and it would roll all the way to the other end of the building. I called my friend who lives in the city to bring me a sleeping bag when she came to pick me up because the sheets were far too filthy to sleep on. The bathroom was dirty and the room had only a few pieces of old, unmatched furniture. There was no TV, alarm clock or anything else. Door did not lock properly. The next day, I told another SSM friend I stayed in the Algonquin, and she responded "You stayed at our homeless shelter?" I wrote a bad review to the hosteling site and they promptly removed the hotel from their site.
