Kenora is a beautiful area of Ontario that's easier to think of as a coalition of a thousand islands connected by a road than as a single coherent town. Tourists flock to Kenora for the outdoorsy activities like sturgeon fishing or sitting on the shore and watching the ferries pass. Kenora also has a vibrant arts community and is home to a number of fishing competitions.
When you book your room at a hotel in Kenora, be sure to do so with us here at Skyscanner so that you get the best deal possible and so that you don't end up stuck on an island in a room you'd rather not be in.
Kenora is one long spaghetti-like town based tightly around the Trans-Canada highway, which locally is known as Lakeview drive. Every hotel and motel in Kenora will be within a block or two of the highway. There are clusters of hotels in Kenora on the far eastern edge of the town's official limits as well as a few tinier clusters farther out along the highway.
Hotels in Kenora tend to cost roughly $100 per night, though the exact amount could be as much as $200 depending on where you book. You'll be able to find typical international chain hotels as well as local Canadian chain hotels in Kenora, but the real gems are the many bed and breakfasts of Kenora.
The bed and breakfasts of Kenora are the places to find the authentic Kenora experience, even if they are a bit more expensive than the other offerings in the area. If you stay at a bed and breakfast, expect a warm Canadian style greeting from the owner, a hearty breakfast, all the coffee you can drink, free wi-fi, and a roaring fire in the lobby's fireplace when seasonally appropriate.
Kenora's bed and breakfasts are typically quite large but maintain their quaint and homey feeling via friendly architecture. Expect staff to be friendly to the point of being nosy, and expect hotels to be harder to book during the summer months when tourists flock to Kenora.
If you're more interested in the modern art side of Kenora hotels, check out the Lakeside Inn, which is a cylindrical glass hotel that's taller than nearly everything else in the town. This means that it has a great view of the surrounding lakes and islands, making it something of a uniquely perfect viewing spot for the region.
If you pick an independently owned hotel in Kenora¸, you'll have a warm and friendly cultural experience. If you pick a chain hotel, you'll have a cheap but predictable hotel experience. The modern art option of the Lakeside Inn offers a unique chance at a perspective of the entire region, which might be a big plus.
Overall, you should expect the standard Western hotel complements with your hotel room in Kenora plus the special appeal of whichever option you pick from the ones above.
Beautiful little city! Been there many times and there's always cool stuff happening!
Kenora is located near Lake of the Woods and for many in this area, this is cottage country with lots of outdoor activities and wilderness to enjoy during the summer.
