The Historic Drawbridge Inn Suites is a charming Tudor Style landmark. You can feel the sense of history when you check in at the front desk.

Unlike big chain hotels, you will experience the genuine warmth of our caring staff. The hotel is just across the road from the azure blue St. Clair River and in the heart of Old downtown Sarnia. Less than a block away, you'll find yourself in the center of Old Front Street with all Sarnia's restaurants and pubs. Modern convenience and facilities with the aura of centuries lost. Our past guests have included two Canadian Prime Ministers, Guy Lombardo and Joe Lewis to name a few. Why not include yourself on our list of VIP customers. Our friendly staff, some of over twenty years, are here to serve you our special guest.
