I stayed at the Kingsway on a business trip for a few days. It was a 5 minute drive from the airport and close to restaurants. I reserved the room beforehand with the Owner, who was very helpful when I arrived to advise information about Thunder Bay. The free wifi was great for me to continue to finish work in... More

Odd smell. Not bad...just odd. Rather out-dated, and there were stains on the carpet. Walls are thin. Had to call the front desk to have the guy next door turn down his TV. The smoke detector is missing the battery. On the good side - wifi works fine, TV was decent, and the linens were clean. And when I called... More

Stopped here for one night on the way through Thunder Bay. It's close to the highway and several restaurants. Room was clean and decent enough. Newer tv and wifi worked great. A decent hotel for a short stay. Only downfall was the thin walls as the person next door was quite the snorer.

Spent a night at the Kingsway this past weekend, and it was beyond expectation. The room was clean and well maintained, the wifi was stable, and the water pressure/temperature in the plumbing was consistent. The staff was polite and friendly, even when we foolishly locked ourselves out of the room. If you're looking for an affordable place to stay a... More

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

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
