I was upgraded to a business suite, so I can't comment on regular rooms. My room was extremely clean, very modern and well decorated. Always ask for a room in the back facing the Nor'Wester hills, which are stunning. There is a pond with a little deck and a meadow behind the hotel leading up to the hills. It is... More

We arrived on site late in the day. This hotel is off the highway in Thunder Bay. It has a nice pool on-site, but we did not use it for exercise because it was full of kids. Nothing against kids - we have five sons - but it was not usable as we would have liked. Our room was fine.... More

Dear MarafromToronto, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and to post this Tripadvisor review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the service at breakfast.

Be sure to get a mountain view room if you decide to stay in this hotel. The hotel is very clean, and I had a great night of sleep. The only recommendation is to give guests a coupon for the onsite restaurant for a continental breakfast.

This Best Western was a nice stay in Thunder Bay on the south end of town. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. (One feature we did not like was the balcony that had no dividers between rooms which means people could walk and look into your room unimpeded. They really should add dividers. The pool which we...

The staff was fantastic. They were very willing to help us find great places to visit and eat. Rooms were very nice and the grounds had nice views. The restaurant on site had very good food. Would definitely stay there again..

We had a pretty good stay at the Best Western Plus in Thunder Bay. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the public spaces were clean and nicely decorated. The pool was large and fun to use. Unfortunately, the hotel doesn't have an elevator as it is only two floors. This didn't really affect us, but I brought this up... More

My husband and his buddy and us wives rode around Lake Michigan last week, on our motorcycles. Part of our trip included Thunder Bay. We stayed here for one night. We were greeted by friendly staff, the room was ready. The dinner was great. The facilities were great. Everything was in working order. As we all know there are often... More

Newly renovated hotel, beds are very comfortable, decoration is new and clean. We stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms, very nice. The Internet connection was great. Very pretty town to visit. Only downside was the pool was closed due to renovations.

Really surprised. Room was clean. Value of product outstanding. Motel was under renovation therefor a lot of the amenities were not available. Staff were helpful. Would have been nice if a continental breakfast and the restaurant were available. If the quality of meals are the same as the room this will be the best bang for the buck available.
