It was the first day on our trip to the BC coast. After driving through torrential rain most of the day we were looking forward to a warm comforting meal. The Best Northern Restaurant did not disappoint. We stayed at the Motel across the highway. The waitress greeted us right away, sat us at a table with a view of... More

The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and it's just off the Trans-Canada Highway. I would stay here again when in Wawa. It is not what you would expect from a well known chain but that is what makes this family owned property quaint and welcoming. It's a bonus to have the best restaurant in town right onsite....especially after... More

We didn't stay in the motel so I can't rate it. However, we had dinner in the restaurant. The restaurant is run by a Polish couple/family, and as another reviewer said, the perogies were to die for. They were melt in your mouth good. I had an appetizer size order of the perogies and a side salad. The salad was... More

We found ourselves in wawa looking for a place to stay. The room is a bit dated, but very clean. Only problem was hot water. We ran the tap for 15 minutes, and no hot water appeared. Makes shower rather chilly! Restaurant has a very nice selection of polish foods. Price point is a little high, but they do have... More

Stayed for two nights in one of their housekeeping cabins. Clean rooms and in decent shape. Our electric fireplace did not work. The WIFI worked well. One room had a bed, the other had bunk beds. I slept on one of the bunks. My bed was a bit noisy. The truck noise all night long is horrid as it is... More

Renovated room with electric fireplace to take the chill off the room on a cold evening. Beds were very comfortable and room was spotless. Free wifi with no connection problems. The real bonus is the amazing restaurant. I was half way through my meal and I was already talking about coming back the next time we are in Wawa. If... More

Before traveling around Lake Superior, I researched hotel/motels that my family could stay. I came across the Best Northern and saw that it had decent reviews (plus a restaurant), so I put it on the top of my list. As we were traveling, the Best Northern was one of the first motels we came across and we decided to stay... More

After the reviews in the CAA book and here we decided to give this place a go. The check in was very pleasant but then the restaurant was closed and we had to go into town for a bite to eat. And in wawa... Tim's or subway or a bar/pub. The room was cold and took forever to warm up... More

This was our 1st stop on our way to Calgary. We had heard about this place, due to the fact that the attached restaurant was owned by a Polish couple and the perogies were to die for. The perogies lived up to this. The room was clean, the beds comfortable and the bathroom was very clean. When we checked in... More

Room is pleasant with no problem sleeping, cable is great, and bathrooms were very clean. Restaurant is cozy with excellent food, the breakfast we had was perfect and definitely home cooking including personal service by owners Mark and Teresa. I would recommend to anyone traveling in this area, my only regret is not being in Wawa for dinner would love... More
