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

Good value hotel, was clean and quiet. Good access to various parts of city. Staff is friendly and helpful. Good access to Confederation College, which was helpful in getting our grandson settled for his year. Would definately stay there again.

Good place to stay for a night on your way across Canada. It was clean and fairly quiet. The staff were courteous and helpful. A good pet friendly option in Thunder Bay. 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

We didn't have any big issues with the room we got. The hotel staff were very nice, but I can say the breakfast wasn't the best. Very dry. It is worth about as much as you pay. You can get a bigger room with another franchise hotel chain for the same price. I can recommend it!

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
