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.

Compared to others in the same price range it's roomy and clean, plus breakfast is included. Careful though, no elevators to the second floor, it seems. If you don't care about the view it's the one for you.

The hotel staff was very hospitable when Expedia had mixed the dates we wanted to stay. The room was nice and clean. The bath however was slow draining but that wasn't a big deal. The breakfast was a nice small breakfast. Overall a nice stay.

Just drove from Barrie On. to Thunder Bay 14 hrs. Found out that the room was now $20 more because the fair was in town ! What a scam ! Got ready for a good sleep , rolled the sheets back and found that there was still sex stains on the sheets. I told the girl at the desk and... More

I wasn't sure what to expect after reading some of the reviews. The place was good for what we paid- clean room, not noisy near the rooms, friendly staff, and decent breakfast. My only complaint would be the noise during breakfast due to the gym above the breakfast area. If there is a class art the gym it makes it... More

Stayed for a couple nights while touring around area. Nothing fancy but it was clean, quiet and reasonably priced. Breakfast in the morning was limited but it is an Econo lodge. Would stay here again if we are in the area.

Our room was clean, quiet, and we felt safe. For the price paid, I'm satisfied. The location is strategically well-placed, the staff was friendly enough. The neighborhood was not glitzy at all, but neither is most of Thunder Bay :). The room was a bit smaller than typical would be for the U.S., but it did fit a king size... More
