Lovely older motel in business since 1972. No bad smell and motel has done renovations. Spotlessly clean, bed very comfortable. Fridge , microwave, good enough Tele, coffee maker in safe area close to every thing . What more do you need. I am very picky about cleanliness and this passed my test.. friendly staff also. Loved the Harwood laminate floors!!... More

Friendly staff and clean rooms! The property was quiet and felt safe. Good working shower, the wifi was really fast and the rooms are big enough for four people comfortably. Overall we had a great stay!

This is our first stay at this motel but it definitely won't be our last. The rooms were very clean and look like they have been newly renovated. Their staff was very friendly and helpful. It is pretty centrally located not far from restaurants and the downtown area and even though it is located just off the main highway the... More

I have stayed at the Northlander on numerous occasions. The staff is friendly and accommodating and the room was comfortable and clean. You can tell they have done some fixing up of the rooms over the past year. I will definitely continue staying here on my trips to the Sault.

I am writing this review because the Manager couldn't be bother to speak with me.

I have been staying at the Northlander for a few months now. I have really enjoyed my stay. It is nice and quiet. The staff is friendly, private, and discreet.

When we first entered the room, we were excited about its large size and the fresh paint. As it turned out the room was very clean and well maintained but the bathroom fixtures are very old. The toilet needed 2 flushes each time and the shower continually flashed hot and cold. The hotel is centrally located and easy to get... More

From early fall to late spring, I stay there a minimum of 8 days per month. I have had little issues but nothing that would make me want to go to another place. The staff is courteous, its private, secluded and far enough off the road that you don't hear each passing car. This price is very competitive and overall... More

It seems that every September I'm in the Soo for a night, so I stay here. Why? Because it's clean and inexpensive, that's why. Location is great, eats are walking distance, pick your poison. Did I mention it was clean? And that the price is right? Yeah, I'll be back again next year. :-)
