I would recommend this hotel for the beautiful scenery and comfortable room. The staff here is great and the restaurant on site has decent food. The pool and hot tub area is very nice and clean. Even thou it is about 20 minutes outside the city it is well worth the drive to stay there.

Once again we stopped here on our return from Alberta to Ontario. Super location, great view of McKay Mountain (OK, it's an Ontario mountain). Spacious grounds are immaculately tended. Staff extremely courteous. Great stay.

Nice clean hotel. Staff was friendly. The pool and jacuzzi were excellent and the " adult" hours for using them were awesome. Breakfast was the usual but waitress was nice. I would definitely stay here again if in the Thunder Bay area.

We booked the hotel to attend a wedding. The property was a little remote but had tremendous views. Everything was great and I never dealt with a more friendly and accommodating staff at any hotel anywhere.

If you are taking a road trip with your dog, and passing through Thunder Bay you must stay here. Our dogs spent 10+ hours a day in our car and this was a welcome reprieve. Ground floor direct access outside, expansive grounds. Very courteous staff; clean comfortable room. Highly recommend

Anywhere would have been the same but would think anywhere else would have been better for half the price. Expected much more from a best western plus. no real amenities other than what would be expected in any motel chain. Nothing special here. Very noisy with pets barking with owners out somewhere else leaving pets alone in room. Probably cause... More

This is the place to stay if you are visiting, or passing through, Thunder bay. Close to the airport and a 10 minute drive from downtown, the quiet location is exactly what you need after a long drive or flight. Make a point of visiting the Mount McKay lookout as it is in the neighborhood. Service is exemplary - friendly,... More

The hotel staff made us very comfortable and were welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable. The kids and I enjoyed the pool and hot tub. We would stay at this hotel again. It had a beautiful view of the mountains.
