5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Staff was very helpful, room was very clean and neat and nicely decorated. It is obvious they have been updating the hotel and the fitness center as good as you will find. Food was good, the only flaw I found was breakfast took a little long between ordering and getting the food.

We drove 11 hours from Sudbury. I made the mistake of booking a room with Hotwire. Long story short, the front desk upgraded our room. The staff at this Best Western was great! The location was a little out of the way for us but with Hotwire you don't get a choice. The room was clean and I highly recommend... More

I have had the pleasure of staying at this property on a regular basis since 2012 while in Thunder Bay on business. The location, amenities and best of all the professional, courteous and friendly staff do a lot to make the road warrior feel at home. The hotel has been investing some money upgrading the infrastructure over these past few... More

After dealing with clients all day, I expect that when I become the customer I get treated accordingly. For me I get treated above and beyond great at this hotel. I stay at different hotels over 100 nights a year and this is a huge reason to come back.

It is a very nice place to stay. The front desk staff was very helpful and responsive. The front lobby is nice and well layed out. They offer a free shuttle to and from the airport which was extreamely helpful to us. The hotel is a little out of the way and there isn't much nearby other than a resturant... More

Hotel was only a few minutes from the ski hill. Hotel is kept in immaculate condition. We had a group of athletes. All our athletes and coaches found that the hotel staff went above and beyond to cater to our needs. Food was awesome.

This hotel is a bit out of the way so not convenient for a stay in Tbay but is great for a get away. The restaurant isn't too good, not child friendly meal. A bit expensive for what you get. The fitness area is excellent for the children. The rooms are comfortable and very clean.

Ask for the Mounain view side. Spring time is not as colourful as others but it is quiet, away from the road and sitting on the balcony enjoying a beverage is a wonderful way to unwind. Be aware there is a second floor unit without a balcony. The first floor units have some pretty uneven cement and we found our... More

This hotel has a lovely walking park with a view. And the indoor pool and sauna are nice, too. We had a first-floor walk out room that made taking the pups out easy. The facility was quiet and clean with comfortable beds.

Being in a wheelchair the staff could not do enough to make sure my stay was excellent. Even my step son found them friendly and very helpful.
