Ontario Accommodations By Type

For such a big province – with a vast area that shifts between urban centres and untouched wilderness – there are bound to be many different types of accommodations you can book.

While hotels are generally popular across the province, you’ll often also find accommodations like inns, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses in smaller towns.

The farther away from big centres you get, the more you’ll come across updated motels, apartments, cottages, vacation homes, and a number of top resorts with all the amenities you could ask for. There are plenty of lakeside accommodations in Ontario if that’s what you’re after!

It’s important to do your research before making any bookings – especially with cottage rentals in Ontario.

If you have an idea of what type of accommodation you might be looking for, you can find some guides on a number of accommodation types below.

Ontario Accommodations By Region

You can also search for accommodations in Ontario by region. Often, travellers know the area/region they want to venture to – maybe because of a wine tour, a specific brewery, a beach day, or a hiking trail – but don’t have a specific spot to stay picked out.

That’s where searching for accommodations by region comes in handy. Regions – like Prince Edward County, for example – often have many smaller centres that you can choose to stay in.

Regions usually also feature a healthy mix of accommodations by type to suit all different kinds of travellers.

Below, you can find a number of detailed accommodation guides by region. These guides walk you through the types of accommodations available and also the best areas you may want to stay in that region.

Accommodation by Ontario City

Another way to approach looking for Ontario accommodations is to focus on a specific city.

From larger cities like Toronto and Ottawa to popular cities like Niagara Falls and Kingston, there are loads of great cities to visit in Ontario.

Similar to regions, many cities also have a good mix of accommodation options to suit the needs of all types of travellers – no matter their interests, ages, and budgets.
