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

My husband and I found ourselves broken down in Wawa and were brought to this motel by the OPP officer that rescued us from the roadside. We were expecting to spend a night and ended up here for 5. The room is cozy and comfortable. We loved being able to soak in the jacuzzi at night and the grocery store... More

I needed a place to stay for the night - nothing fancy or expensive. This was the perfect place - excellent value, friendly staff. Don't expect anything upscale though - CRT tv, metal key and deadbolt, writing pad is just cut up pieces of paper - but felt just like home. Would definitely come here again.

The Bristol is a quaint little motel with a hospitable owner. The rooms are somewhat small and the walls are thin but it was quiet and comfortable and have no complaints, especially with the great price. There is a "family room" type den in the basement, which is good for students or sports teams. There is also a hot tub... More

The owners make you feel welcome and taken care of. The rooms are cozy and clean. My favourite place to stay in Wawa. Central location -it's on the main road but quiet. Parking is convenient. When my car wouldn't start on one very cold morning, the owners didn't hesitate to help me and ensure I got to my meeting on... More

I stayed here for one night and found the hotel fine. The room was clean and the service was great. It is located right on the strip through town so you can walk to dinner if you want . I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
