I had not stayed at the Pinewood for a number of years and it is under new ownership since I had last stayed. I was greeted by a very pleasant host (Yvette) and checked in. The room was clean and comfortable. Despite the motel being quite busy, it was very quiet. I would definitely recommend the Pinewood for anyone in...

Ever notice that hotels have separate bins in the rooms for garbage and recycling yet the housekeeping carts only have one garbage bag where everything gets dumped together? The Pinewood is the real deal. They not only recycle, but they have organic waste collection, environmentally friendly soaps and are very energy conscious. I really appreciate the extra effort made here...

Thank you very much Jef for your sharing your feedback! As a family and a business we do what we can to be eco-conscious and sustainable. Doing our part to be environmentally responsible is an important lesson to teach our son. As you said, its vital that we (all) be good stewards of our planet and are truly grateful that...

the price was 50.00 more than was quoted when we got there. #2 there was no phones in the rooms. i never have been to a motel with no phone service. . #3 there was no giddeons bible in the rooms. never seen that one before either. I would not go back .

YvetteandMark, Owner at Pinewood Inn, responded to this review

This guest reserved through a booking agent, not with us directly. Their issue with the price misquote has nothing to do with Pinewood Inn, nor is it an accurate representation of our business practices. We operate this motel with integrity and pride. In this era of cell phones, we made the decision not to incur the added cost of land...

Arrived a couple of days ago and just spent the night at the Pinewood Inn. Very reasonably priced-45 minute drive from Algonquin Park. Enjoyed using the backyard...had a picnic supper on the lawn chairs facing the lake. We both enjoyed that very much....better than heading out for supper to a restaurant. We'd both come again. In fact, we're already talking...

Our stay with Yvette and Mark and their son Hayden was really nice! We were a group of five students and needed a place close to Algonquin the night before and after our three days canoe tour. So we booked the room with two beds and a pull out couch. When we arrived we were quite excited about our first...

Thank you Luisa for your lovely review! It was wonderful hosting you ladies (please give Carolin my regards). It was so awesome that you got out to Algonquin to camp.

We stayed at this motel based on the positive reviews on this site and we weren't disappointed. Yvette, the owner, was very friendly and most helpful in suggesting the sights and places to eat. As we had already chosen the Wilno Tavern for dinner, she immediately offered us a 10% discount coupon (yay!!!). The room had two queen beds, a...

We stayed there on a motorcycle trip, and made reservations the night before, so we got the last room available, which doesn't have access to the backyard. Still, the bed was super comfortable!!! The owner is super friendly, she even called us shortly after we left to let us know we had forgotten our sun lotion!

We called last minute to see if this business had rooms left. Lucky for us, Yvette and Mark had 1 room left. It was nicely furnished (from bedding to curtains).

Our dearest Sandra. Thank you for taking some time to review us. Your perspective is so valuable. You have the unique position of seeing the massive changes we have made since taking over 6 years ago. When we bought this place it was a mess. In disrepair, fifthly and earning a less than stellar reputation. We are really proud of...
