Spent a quick overnight here.The room was renovated and provided everything that is needed and was more than adequate.. The problem was the smokers. While the rooms are clearly labelled non smoking, our neighbour seemed to be smoking in the room, and others smoked outside the rooms. When our door was opened, the smell of smoke quickly filled the room.... More

I've stayed at various motels/hotels in the Soo for +20yrs. This one is my favorite. The staff tries hard to get everything right; the amenities, the cleanliness, the service level and the price. I also like how it is conveniently located off of hwy 17. It is tucked back enough that you can't really hear the sound of the trucks... More

We were there. The staff were decent, the rooms were clean and the price was reasonable. Passing through town without the family and it may be a good option. The rooms were mostly updated. It was obvious that work was done recently and is on going.

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!

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.
