Driving across canada and staying in the old country motel, it is a good price, clean rooms and friendly service. If you are looking for pretty, not for you,but I am looking for bang for my buck, and it was great.

I was in town for a business trip. Decided to stay on a few extra days and was looking for an affordable in-town option. I found Old Country to be a nice experience. I stayed in Room 1, which appears to be recently updated. The room had a stove top, fridge, kitchen sink. The bathroom was spotless. Beds were comfy.... More

We knew from the get go that this was not the best place to stay in Thunder Bay. If you can afford to stay at another motel I would suggest you do so. The rooms are out dated, floor dirty overall first look is not good and if we were not so tired we would have moved on to another... More

As soon as we opened the door, we knew we couldn't stay there. There was the stench of urine in the room and floor was very dirty. The owner/manager wasn't available, so we simply left to find somewhere else to stay and ate the cost of the room. We called him to let him know, and he was very nice... More

We travel a LOT. We have stayed in many Delta Hotels, Hiltons, etc....all at a whopping price for nice decor. Sam is the friendliest owner you could ever meet, if you need something, just ask he will get it for you. The rooms are OLD, he is busily trying to update each one. New bathrooms, little kitchenettes, it is a... More

My family spent three nights here during a stay in Thunder Bay. The motel was simple and older but had some nice updates--comfortable beds, updated bathroom. The family suite we stayed in had two bedroom areas separated by a wall and a simple kitchenette with a funny stovetop/refrigerator combination, but all functioned well. Gas grill in the common area if... More

Laundary, WiFi and TV worked without problem. Djuring our stay I had a bit of a cold and he brought me a lemon and vitamin pills every day.... More

Other than the owner being a very accommodating person and the rooms were somewhat clean, but the walls were paper thin and the dust was a little too much. A bit more effort would make this place great but the owner seems more intent on keeping you there with idle chit chat and diversions about the city and the new... More

My husband is traveling across country and I am booking hotels for him. I booked this hotel last night. They accommodated us no problem; it was cheap, clean and quiet, though it smelled quite stale. The staff were very courteous. This is the perfect spot for a budget traveler.

We are a large family, and we had already been turned away from one motel because of no vacancy. It was late, and we were desperate to hurry and find a room. We had never heard of this motel before, but we saw it as we were passing through, so we pulled in. The outside is kind of creepy, but... More
