      When i checked for bed bugs- the boxspring had a sheet on it that had black dots and blood, so we slept in the other bed and left suitcases in vehicle. The toilet had no water in the tank when i went to flush. I removed the back and filled by hand. Once toilet was full - it ran and surged all night and the stack moaned. I love Kenora but this room for $142. After taxes was aweful. P.S. there is no lake view.
