After a 15 hour drive we were welcomed with one of the freindliest customer service people I have ever interacted with, that was only the start of a fantastic stay. the hotel is up-dated and fresh. The room was so comfortable and the bed and linens were exceptional. The hotel has a restaruant which has great service and very good... More

This hotel has a spectacular view of the Nor'Wester mountains, it's clean and quiet. The staff are spectacular and if you end up in one of the many suites, it is truly resortlike, with updated spa bathrooms and large screen TV's. There is a nice pool and exercise equipment and it is close to town and airport. I wouldn't dream... More

Stayed with them for one night. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. Ate at the restaurant and were not impressed whatsoever for what we were charged. However, the young lady waiting on us was very nice and provided good service. Overall, the cost was satisfactory. Don't know if I would recommend it to a friend or even... More

We recently had a stay-cation at this hotel, like a girls retreat for our family. The Check in process was a mess, it took 20 minutes to check in two rooms that were previously booked. The front desk staff were unclear with the charges going onto our credit card about a security deposit, another member of our party wasn't even... More

I booked this hotel without checking the map. It is off the beaten path which isn't bad as it offers a distance from traffic and scenic views. It would be a nice stay on a warm sunny day. The first impression is a turn off as when you enter the building you are overcome with the smell of chlorine. Check... More

I had planned on driving farther than Thunder Bay before stopping for the night but was not able to find any accommodations down the line so stopped here. I was pleasantly surprised to find a comfortable motel with an attached bar/cafe and a beautiful pond with a great view literally in the back yard. The beds were comfortable, the room... More

We stay here on our way north. Quality restaurant on site. Staff are always very friendly and helpful. This year the executive housekeeper (lost her card and can't remember her name), went out of her way to help us. We will always continue to stay there and appreciate the amazing staff both in the Hotel and restaurant. We generally stay... More

This was by far the best hotel we have stayed in. The room (King suite) was amazing, and the staff was so friendly and helpful. If you get the chance, stay there. It is outside on Thunder Bay on hwy 61 about 8 km but so worth the extra drive. Pool, restaurant, room service everything was excellent!

Our room smelled like feet and our door lock wouldn't work, but overall, I would stay again- based on the rooms of family members. In the case of our door lock, front desk staff kept telling us maintenance would come look at the lock, but it kept malfunctioning- we were safe, we just couldn't get in. The air conditioner gave...
