In the midst of Downtown and steps away from the Port of Orillia, this historic hotel is close to numerous local attractions and places of interest including Casino Rama, the Leacock Museum, Orillia Opera House. OPP Museum and Hawk Ridge Golf & Country Club, Lakehead University and Georgian College are also in the area. A wide variety of restaurants shops surround the hotel. The city of Orillia boats miles of paved trails from one end of town to another, providing plenty of options for hiking, jogging, biking and rollerblading. Guests of this hotel will be pleasantly surprised. We provide free wireless internet, and in room coffee makers. Whether for business or leisure, the Hotel Champlain is the perfect place to stay. Our staff look forward to your next visit with us.

I agree with”Run don’t Walk” review. Phoned hotel the day prior to arriving that my reservations were in order. On checking in, was told I did not book king room but had a double room. A copy of reservation did nothing to convince otherwise. Spoke with day staff next morning and straightened things out, so I thought. Assured everything fine. On checking out, questioned a charge on my credit card...again assured everything was fine. Once at home, tried to straighten out bill. Like talking to a brick wall. I am now in possession of someone else’s bill and information and now wonder what they have done with mine and who is in possession of it!! Please, save yourself and stay elsewhere!! The hotel: Cons - ELEVATOR NOT FUNCTIONING, 16 parking spaces plus one handicapped spot (stairs lead from back parking lot to lobby, so if one has mobility issues they must enter in front). No card given for cars that need to park elsewhere. Instead told that they will pay parking ticket. After my hotel bill issues, i don’t have confidence in that! Rooms small ( older hotel), very little and cramped space for toiletries in bathroom. View may be of brick wall. Breakfast: NO tables or chairs to sit on. Must either eat in room or in lobby on couch. Food limited to frozen and warm in microwave. Pros - convenient location to downtown.

"Waterfront" in the name is completely misleading. The water is 200 meters away across the road. Our room was small and cramped, with a lovely view of a brick wall. Staff were friendly, but that is about it for the positives. Unless you can get a too good to be true price, you'll probably be happier staying somewhere else.

Nothing works in this hotel. Elevator has been broken for 3 years or more, there is no cleaning staff so they hand you sheets to make your own bed. You lug your own luggage up the stairs yourself, the air conditioning work to cool for15 minutes then changes to heat,oh and no parking spaces so they advise just let them ticket you and we can pay the ticket. Run to any other hotel. Just awful.

Let’s start with what’s good; Location couldn’t be better! Grocery store, liquor store and lots of restaurants very close by with a discount at Fionns. You can see the water if your room is at the back. Clean rooms and comfortable beds. Ice machine works. Bad; no elevator. Very limited parking. The young woman running the front desk is not very welcoming and doesn’t like being taken out of her comfort zone. We’ve stayed in worse places. I wouldn’t stay here again because of the parking problem and no elevator.

Wheelchair accessible room is located on the first floor. It is very clean & comfortable. Bathroom is huge with a gigantic roll-in shower. But...its located beside the parking lot access door from the lobby. The door slams closed each time it is opened and as a result, its very very difficult to get a decent sleep in this room.

Room Tip: Small parking lot. Not many spaces. Clients for the restaurant next door may be using it too.
