I have never taken the time to write a review before but I felt this place deserved it! Upon our arrival we were super hungry and the owners were happy to tell us about all the places to eat in town, what delivers, what is fancy if we feel, and even accommodated us with forks and knives when the place...

I loved my stay. It was warm, friendly, clean, with good internet, with good breakfast. I especially love how they put a lot of thought and care in everything. Little notes on everything and free souvenirs in the breakfast room.

This was our first time at the northern lights in Wawa we showed up without a reservation and John was happy to accommodate us. We ended up in chalet 2 it was clean and comfortable and for my wife, daughter and I it was enormous. I think it could sleep 14. John was able to suggest a place for us... More

Because we travel with our dog, our selection of motels is somewhat limited. We were delighted to find the Northern Lights Motel on our drive around Lake Superior. The 3-bedroom chalet was a bit pricey for two people & pet but would be a good buy for a large family. The kitchen was fully equipped; the internet connection and satellite... More

This is our forth time staying at Norhtern Lights in five years and each time has been more enjoyable than the last. Rooms (main building) are very clean with comfortable beds, freshly updated bathrooms and great ammenaties (great satelite package and books in room). The free breakfast has quite a bit of selection and has the feel of being 'home-made'.... More

On a recent Fly In fishing trip out of Wawa, ON I had the pleasure of staying at the Northern Lights motel. Simply stated-- the best accommodations in Wawa. Now, what makes the stay 5 stars was the fact that we rented the Chalet as opposed to a standard room. Chalet #1 to be precise. Northern Lights offers 3 more... More

My husband and I have been staying at Northern Lights Motel & Breakfast for 12 years now. John & Mo are amazing people that will bend over backwards to make you happy and comfortable while you are staying with them. We have stayed in all 3 room choices (room, chalet and cottage), and every time they are spotless! Beds are... More

It was great to arrive at the Northern Lights and be greeted by friendly staff, who gave excellent directions and have the cleanest, neatest, best kitted out Chalet I think I've ever seen. Regular rooms were booked so we took the Chalet as the last available space. Everything you could need! Found a nice meal in town at the North... More

My husband, toddler and I recently stopped there for one night in one of their motel rooms. Mo greeted us with a smile and gave my little girl a toy whale. After a quick check in we walked into an extremely clean room. We had a great sleep. The beds were comfortable and it was not too noisy considering we... More

A bit dated, but all the personal touches more than make up for it. Nicest people ever! Nice breakfast. Easy to find and lots of activities around to visit. Wawa is a great destination and Northern lights is the place to stay.
