We went up to Thunderbay for a hockey tournament, and needed to stay at a place that was reasonably priced, as we had about 15 people with us. We got a great price for the week, and the manager was kind enough to accommodate our team. The rooms were clean and maintained. The rooms had everything we needed, and the... More

I hate giving out bad reviews but I feel people must know the truth. Why this place would get a good review is beyond me? There is a reason this place ranks so low. It is a terrible place to stay. Seems like the manager does not like his job; very aggressive, unfriendly and gave me a higher quote at... More

Me and my family stayed in this motel last two weeks. We have a great experience staying in there. Manager and all employees were great helping me with everything because I was new in town. They welcome me with hot coffee or tea and warm smile. Rooms were very clean and tidy. Our day started with free complimentary newspaper,and free... More

Myself, and my friends stopped in thunder bay on a road trip. We were able to get a room for the night at a great price for students on a budget. The owner of the motel was kind, and was helpful when we required something, like a place to eat, or where to order in from, he was very reliable.... More

My husband and I went to the kingsway as we thought for 85 dollars we would get a decent - if not brilliant - night's sleep. When we entered the room, it was dimly lit and not particularly clean with a distinct odour. The bed had a noisy plastic cover that crunched under us every time we moved. We immediately... More

The only reason we stayed at this dump is that it was the only motel that we could find that allowed pets. The bathrooms were dirty. The carpets were so filthy that your socks stuck to them. The owner/manager kept peeking in the windows. The room was tiny to boot. Avoid at all costs.

By far the worst motel I have ever stayed in as it was unclean and unfit to be sold. The walls are paper thin, I could here the people from both rooms around me all night. When I had issues with the room the manager actually yelled at me and argued with me and refused to give me my money... More
