nice location. Rooms are very nice. Offers amenities and a restaurant on-site with great view of the Norwester mountains just south of Thunder Bay. What lost this establishment marks in my books is the way the front desk personnel seemed to be lacking in friendliness and not having more knowledge about their hotel??? Perhaps they are new? But you would... More

Stayed here for one night with 4 others due to our flight being cancelled to Sioux Lookout. As 5 europeans who had met for the first time, it was difficult being stranded in a strange area as we were on our way to a Rotary International youth camp. The hotel was great and provided amazing accommodation at short notice as... More

I found the hotel average for the price. I wouldn't choose this hotel a second time around. Lobby is nice. Restaurant isnt anything amazing. Rooms were convenient as we had a walk out room. Basic cable. No movies available. We stayed here during our cross Canada trip.

We were motorcycling around Lake Superior and wanted something a little nicer than a run-of-the-mill hotel, but didn't want to go the high-end route. The Norwester was the perfect choice. Lobby and restaurant are a modern northwoods decor. Rooms are all updated with newer carpet, TV, desk, etc. Here's a BIG plus: your stay comes with breakfast--but in this case,... More

The night before I arrived here I ended up in a pretty awful room in Wawa, so after that I was eager to overcompensate with something nice. This more than made up for that experience. The room was comfortable and nicely set up and the grounds were beautiful, quiet and relaxing. The hotel was nicely decorated throughout and the staff... More

"This was a very pleasant surprise. I arrived tired, after driving many hours. The hotel is tucked away at a base of a mountain, a huge (acres) of lawn at the back of hotel. It is a 8 min drive to hwy 17, but really worth it. You truly feel like you are in the country. The hotel is older,... More

I did a road trip across Canada, and this was the NICEST place I stayed. Great room, amazing amenities, beautiful grounds. They accommodated my dog and were great about it (lots of places to walk her on the property). I didn't eat in the restaurant but it looked nice. I got room service instead and the food was great.
