We stayed at the Ramada Ojibwa and this breakfast was part of the package. So much nicer than the average microwaveable continental breakfast offered at most hotels these days. Friendly wait staff with a beautiful view of the Soo Locks.

Have been here several times and never had a bad experience. This time I found the menu very limited and the room understaffed. The hotel was full the night before and the night we were there but service was very slow.
