It was cheaper than most, and therefore it not up there. Room was OK, bed was OK, clean, working shower, parking close, no pool.. was quiet. Fella was nice. So you get what you pay for.. No Frills here.. Breakfast was on the run, did have hard boiled eggs & yoghurt, but no seating..

Hotel was dated but everything worked as it should. Bed was clean and it wasn't too loud, the staff were nice and breakfast was included. We were just passing through and it did the trick! Wouldn't want to stay here for more than a couple of days but if you're only passing through its a great option!

We made a 2-night reservation for this hotel in advance of our stay for $85/night. Subsequently, we had to stay for an additional night. When driving into the city, we noticed billboards posted by the Econolodge advertising a nightly rate of $74. When my wife checked in, she asked about this rate and was informed by the clerk that is... More

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

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.
