i was disappointed. The rooms were clean, and the staff friendly. The ceiling had huge water marks for a previously leak, the bed was like sleeping in porridge, it was way too soft. The bathroom amenities were half used. I had to stay here on business, although i love the town of La Ronge, i will consider other places on...

I visited La Ronge for the very first time this month - a community about 3.5 hours north of Saskatoon. The Waterbase Inn sits on the edge of Lake La Ronge with a float plane "airport" behind the property. The place is a bit weathered, but I don't know if any of the other motels in the area would be...

We stayed at the water base inn during our trip to Russell lake in June. The accommodations were very nice and clean. The folks there are very nice and make your stay enjoyable. There are several paces to eat at within walking distance. We will stay again next trip to La Ronge.

Nothing too fancy. Worth it for the cost. One of the nicer hotels in town. Decent view of the lake. I would recommend the room with a kitchen. Very convenient and some rooms have a view of the lake...

Best accommodations in La Ronge! Our room, and in fact every portion of the inn we saw was sparkling and very fresh smelling. Spotless laundry facilities. Room spacious and we parked right outside the door, very handy for loading gear in and out. It was super quiet on the backside. We snowshoed right from the door out across the lake....

The hotel was reasonable for what we wanted, Price, location, availability and WIFI, unfortunately there was no cafe or restaurant available nor vending machine. The staff on call were not at all interested in assisting with answering any questions. All we needed was a place to stay and the night was good, quiet and peacefull

Very noisy hotel and the staff was very unpleasant and were not helpful at all. My room was somewhat clean there were some things that looked like they hadn't been wiped off in months which that kind of thing really turns me away. There are always drunks lurking around the street at night so it always made me nervous to...

Great place to stay, staff is helpful and friendly and lots of parking. Rooms are plain but all I need is a place to sleep and I was able to watch t.v it was great. There are restaurants close by within walking distance and you can enjoy the view of the lake.

I spent two nights here and it's a great place to stay! The staff is very friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. There are restaurants nearby and Robertson's Trading Post is right across the street (yes, it's a real trading post!). The view east across Lac la Ronge is pretty. The back parking lot did not need to...
