The hotel is in a great location, close to the highway and malls. The room was spacious and clean but the bathroom was a bit small. You had to almost sit sideways on the toilet so you wouldn't bang your arm on the toilet paper holder. It would be better if it was placed on the wall across from the... More

Travelling through & booked last minute - so was happy to get a decent room with a good price. The room was clean, staff were personable & the bed was comfortable. Location was good as was easy access to the highway for those driving through …. Complaint would be the strong smell in the hallway that creeped into the room... More

I found the place to be very nice. Tho it was not a fancy room, it was nice and clean, with comfortable beds, and a nice roomy sized bathroom. The place was quiet during the night, when we needed to sleep. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the free breakfast took care of our morning hunger. It is also... More

A good budget hotel.Located close to a variety of restaurants.There is also a mall within walking distance.We paid about 90.00 (CAA discount) and this is a comparative bargain in Thunder Bay.Would definitely stay here again.

My boyfriend and I needed a place to stay in Thunder Bay. Searched around for an affordable hotel as we we're just driving through. Econo Lodge was only $98+ tax, was clean, carried free wifi and complimentary breakfast. Definitely a high 3.5 Star, great little hotel & we will stay here again if need be.

The place is located on one of those miracle miles surrounded by strip plazas. Surrounded by a parking lot, it's only appeal is price and location. It is in need of an overhaul, especially the overpowering smell of disinfectant in the hallways and rooms, which left me with a headache. I had to open the windows to try and air... More

Average hotel, clean rooms. Not cheap but cheaper than other hotels in the same area. Friendly staff. No pool. A little ways off the highway. Good restaurant down the street. Nothing fancy, might look for something different next time as this hotel had really nothing special to offer.

It was getting late, traveling in the area of Thunder Bay. I was looking for some inexpensive lodging for the night. Decided to check out the Econo Lodge. From the exterior, not to appealing, but I decided to check it out. No single rooms available, took a double on the second floor. Inside the room I was pleasantly surprised, clean,... More

We travelled with our 3 children. The price was right. Rooms were small but well kept. Our roll out was ready in the room for us when we arrived. The breakfast was enough to keep us over until lunch. The bowling alley next door provided a nice activity for the family.
