At first glance this is a nice looking hotel. The lobby is clean and decorated nicely, but that's about where it all stops. My wife and were in Thunder Bay to explore and have some fun in Canada, it was our first trip together to Canada since we've been married (37 + years). We wanted to make it something special....

I was here for business and this hotel was booked for me by the company I was there to work with. At first it looks like it might be an older hotel and I was a little nervous. I shouldn't have been. This hotel was obviously built a number of years ago but it is immaculate and everything just looks... More

My wife and I like to celebrate our anniversary every year at a hotel. The Valhalla is one of the best hotels in Thunder Bay! The restaurants downstairs are great, service is always good. Front desk staff is so kind. I always recommend the Valhalla to our out of town guests

We booked on hotwire and thought it looked great when we arrived. The lobby area was lovely with two restaurants and a view of the nice pool. Then we got to our room - not sure it's been updated since the 1990s at the latest. Very tired furniture, awkward layout with a desk in the middle of the room right... More

Thank you for your review of our hotel. With our ground floor guestrooms being split level, a desk style divider between the bed and sitting area is in place for your safety. Additional guestroom renovations are planned for this winter. Should you decide to stay with us again, our hotel has numerous guestroom options including Deluxe King or Two Queen... More

I am quite impressed with the Valhalla Inn. My room was clean and spacious (two queen beds and an eating area with a table and two chairs. A nice view of the mountains from our window.

We stayed here as we were guests at a wedding taking place at the hotel. The wedding took place in the Courtyard which is old and in need of being freshened up. Not a pretty area. It began to pour rain during the ceremony. The bride and groom should have prepared for rain. But I also think that the venue... More

Thank you for your review of our hotel. Sorry it rained during the ceremony in our courtyard. When the weather is like that we always have a back up room ready to go to bring the ceremony inside. I apologize our placement of the towels could have been closer to the entrance. We will keep your suggestion in mind. When... More

Stayed here in August/September 2013 for a wedding. Was offered the option of a renovated room which seemed to be a wise choice. Totally fine, serviceable. Staff lovely and friendly and very helpful. Very close to airport. Area is beautiful.

I thought I was on the Valhalla website, and was actually told that I was. The guy lied and apparently I was on Expedia. He did not put in my requests, I was charged in American funds and although they tried to help me out at the Valhalla, their hands were tied because Expedia had done the booking. A room... More

We got one of the rooms that had not been renovated. It was a huge room with a strange layout. It was clean. The carpets in the stairs and hallway were in really bad shape. They have seen better days. It also took forever for the watet to heat up enough to have a shower.
