I was thoroughly impressed with just how clean my room was. Although there was no air conditioning in the room, it was cool enough in the evening to open the door before bed to let some cool air in. The owners were pleasant to deal with and their sense of pride was abounding.

Our 1 week stay at the Kingsway Motel was above and beyond what we expected. One of the reason we enjoyed staying at The Kingsway Motel was the excellent service provided by the owner and as well as the housekeepers, very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed free Internet, complimentary coffee in the mornings, free local newspaper, daily cleaned rooms and... More

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

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
