My husband and I stayed there for 2 nights. It wasn't much, room was small but staff were friendly, it was affordable and pet friendly. It was quite and comfortable. That's all you need when traveling.

It was late at night, I was tired, looked for a place to stay overnight, had a choice of several places along this commercial area in Thunder Bay, and just wheeled into the lot at this Voyageur Motel, and was very happy with the fellow that came right out to help me, found a nice quiet comfortable room, was quick,...

I would recommend the Voyageur Motel, and I would stay here again. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, room temp was adequate. Hotel furniture was mismatched, but who cares? We didn't come to spend our visit in the room looking at the furniture. As long as the place was clean and the bathroom didn't have mushrooms growing in it... More

This was my spouse and I's second stay at the Voyageur. They are kind, professional and obviously put a lot of their time into the business. We stayed on the second floor (a smoking room, which was all that was left as this place books up fast) with our two dogs. The furniture, bed and fridge was brand-new. The television... More

I would not recommend the voyageur: AC was horrible it barely worked so I had to open the window for some cool air but then I was clearly able to hear the trains all night so my options were to try to sleep in a very very warm room or a warm room with grinding metal in the background. The... More

We arrived after a 15 hr drive very tired, owner asked if I wanted a queen or king, took the king, $75 including tax. Room very clean, large tv and great Internet (included), tiny fridge that worked great. I was so surprised at how comfortable both the bed and pillows were, and I am very picky. The only downside? The... More

Hi I stayed here for a night had a good rest, the owner was very interested in conversation and had a lot to say,I felt good about the staff and the room was one of the cleaner, newer quality rooms I've visited in the Cumberland hotel area. The price was 70$ which I felt was a bit high and the... More

I got an emergency message as soon as I arrived last September. I won"t bore you with the details but it required several long distance calls to Montreal and Vancouver. Realising my stress the previous owner named John let me use his cell phone. Sure, he had a long distance plan, but many a greedy person would would see this... More
