“Basic hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Have stayed here several times and have been happy with the rooms. The last stay we had a fridge. The rooms are a good size and very clean and maintained. There is a continental breakfast which is basically toast and coffee. Out of the city centre so it tends to be quiet and there is lots of parking. Staff is friendly. There is not elevator (2 floors) so request a ground floor if stairs are a problem.

Room Tip: ground floor if stairs are problematic

This hotel is most likely the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed at!!! We got a great deal on the suite. The bed was comfortable and so clean...WOW!!! The staff was very helpful in where to go and eat. The breakfast was small but enough choices. I would stay here again no problem!!!

Room Tip: The rooms at the back are for sure quieter as this does face the highway. But easy access in and ou...

We stayed for one night in our road trip across Canada. It is in a very convenient location for those wanting to avoid downtown traffic. Super clean, comfortable beds, friendly staff. A really nice hotel. You can tell people working there care for the property. I'd recommend it without a doubt.

After reading several favourable reviews we arrived here with high expectations. Unfortunately Thunder Bay Inn fell below what we expected. The young woman who greeted us upon arrival was not able to recommend any local restaurants, the room was clean but spartan, the bed was uncomfortable and the complementary breakfast was meagre. OK for tired travellers looking for a quick overnight crash and no more.

Room Tip: Find your room somewhere else.

We had a bad experience at a non brand name hotel the night before we stayed at this hotel and were a little hesitant while driving up to this hotel. We were pleasantly surprised it was convieniently located had great curb appeal. The small lobby was spotless, the gentleman that checked us in made us feel like we were staying at a bed & breakfast. Very friendly. The room was also spotless everything looked and smelled brand new. The breakfast area was very small, we actually went back to our room to eat, but the breakfast was adequate.

When travelling to Thunder Bay we often passed by this small Inn. On a recent trip to the city we decided to book a room and give it a try. We were more than glad we did. The person who took our reservation was very friendly and really seemed that he appreciated our decision to stay there. Upon arrival the friendliness continued and we were actually shown to our room which was different even though the room was just down the hall. The room was spotless and very well equipped. It beds were soooo comfortable and for a small place they sure didn't scrimp on quality linens, pillows and towels. It was great to have a nice quiet sleep instead of the noise of party's in the rooms around us like the larger dirty hotel two minutes up the highway. We found some critters in our room at that hotel. What a world of difference. The rates were reasonable and well worth the price given the quality of the room. I would strongly recommend the Thunder Bay Inn to anyone looking for a good night(s) rest. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: The Thunder Bay Inn is a bit far from the main shopping and entertainment areas in the city but they...
