I have found the Bristol Hotel to be a good value for a smaller market town like Wawa....they have a variety of rooms to suit your particular needs...however...they are serious about not smoking anything in your rooms...so if you want to break rules...you'll pay for it........good for non smokers.....staff is extremely pleasant and accommodating....and a spa tub is available to...

We stayed in Wawa in September without a reservation. The first motel down the street was full. Our room was small but clean and the staff was wonderful. Bonnie was very friendly and helpful. Coffee and muffins in the morning as well. We stayed in a lot of "mom & pop" motels over two months and the Bristol was a... More

Be careful at the Bristol..you may be in danger of receiving extra charges on your credit card after you leave. It would certainly be expected to have to pay for "extra room cleaning"..in this case an extra $100.charge!..($13 more than the room cost per night)..if you happened to leave the room in a big mess after some wild party had...

Extortion customer. . I discussed this matter with you over the phone when you called for a refund. You decided to publish incorrect information and I want to correct it. When you arrived at the front desk I advised you that this was a smoke free building and that you would have to smoke outside. You signed the registration card... More

We rolled into Wawa in August without a reservation and searched a few motels before getting perhaps one of last rooms in town at the Bristol. Was in the basement and has 2 single beds and a small kitchen. Dusty and needed a good cleaning . But we had been camping for 2 weeks so it was fine for 2... More

Three of us stayed in two rooms, at different ends of the motel the last Sunday in August 2014. Two of us, in different rooms have bed bug bites. The place was clean and tidy and we would not have suspected this. I sent a message by email to the motel and you would think that they would at least... More

Brian, I am sorry that you had a problem with our motel. I did not respond to you stat as I was away on a family emergency. When I returned home I did reply to you as soon as possible. Bed bugs are present in motels, restaurants etc. We do not invite them. My staff have been made aware of... More

A throw back to the 50/60s. Decor and furnishings have seen better days. Rooms are small and unrenovated in the last 40 years. The place is probably a haven for ATVers and snowmobilers in winter. The spa must be seen. However, the staff is friendly. We were stuck but the experience didn't kill us.

We got there and found that our 2 bed room was actually 2 rooms divided by the bathroom. Then the air didn't work in the one room. When we asked for someone to check it, the front desk male did come and check it, confirmed it wasn't working. We asked what they would do for us, either move to a... More

a little disappointed as the way they advertise I expected a more modern motel..it was clean but older building and ammenities..no extra towels,blankets..lighting in room is plentiful but the way it hangs it shines right in your face...man at desk was very friendly..no fan in bathroom had to open window once taking shower..air did not work in room either,very warm..

When you're travelling across the North shore of Lake Superior it seems inevitable, or at least probable, that you will overnight in Wawa. The motels in Wawa, like many Northern Ontario towns, are great for an overnight stay. The Bristol shines out a bit for a budget-driven traveller who needs a clean, quiet room with all the basic amenities. I... More
