We arrived without a reservation. The clerk was efficient seeing as he had 4 other groups of people arrive at the same time as us. His final advice to us as we booked in was, "If you need anything, call the desk at any time." - so I cannot fault the staff for my discomfort: My only complaint about our... More

We arrived late one night at an Econo Lodge after being lost for 45 minutes in Thunder Bay. The hotel is definitely modest with remarkedly low ceilings in the hall to the rooms. However, the room was very clean, and the night clerk was helpful in adding the free Wifi service to my iPad. In the morning, my husband and... More

Cons 1. Rooms are small 2.Bathroom is extremely small with very little space to lay out toiletries. 3.First continental breakfast was a disappointment: Ran out of bread, waffle maker not working,toaster toasts bread on one side only,shortage of boiled eggs and no butter at the serving table. Pros 1. We met a very friendly and courteous cleaning staff member.

this is not the top line in the quality chain. There are beds, bathroom - if that's all you need this is the place and at a reasonable price, Wifi was not too bad, not much for restaurants in the area, more of the industrial part of town, although you can see the sleeping giant as you drive in from...

Good place to throw your head down during travels. We had yappy dogs in the room next to us which was frustrating, but I spoke to the front desk and luckily they were able to reach out to the guest to have it stop. Nothing fancy, but good value for what you get. Wifi works fine, and the continental breakfast... More

It is also close to a number of amenities (food, Walmart, Chapters). We stayed here our way to Ontario from Alberta and decided to book here again on... More

I stayed at this Econo Lodge for 2 weeks, in December 2014. If you are looking for a basic place to stay with access to different parts of this city. Its a good recommendation.Gym needs improvement and so does they need to work a little bit on their breakfast serving efforts. It was cold. The staff was nice and friendly.... More
