“Basic, clean and comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2009

We had a very pleasant night's stay here. The room was clean, and comfortable. Complimentary freshly baked muffins and coffee (creamer only) in the morning.

One thing to note - we stayed in the room next to the office. The person at the front desk was very chatty, and we could hear her (indistinctly) up until about 10pm. This really was not a big deal, but maybe important to know if you are a light sleeper!

We'll certainly stay here again the next time we pass though Wawa.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2009

Will on vacation with friends, we stopped in the quite peaceful little town of Wawa on the shore of lake Superior. We were greated by kind and friendly staff. The rooms are really affordable and reasonable based at around $69 plus taxes. The motel was close to a supermaket, convience store, side walks, movie gallery and restaurants.

We were greeted by kind and curtious staff, rates at 69$ a night were more than reasonably priced. Rooms are vintage, and excellently maintained, fresh coffee and home made muffins are a great touch and we had a great converstion with the owner over coffee.

Had a great stay and will stop again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2008

Okay, so there definitely are limited motel options when staying in Wawa.

We wanted to be right in town, so that eliminated the two best reviewed properties in the area. We insisted on accommodations that were clean and safe. We also didn't want to be forced to pay what we felt were exorbitant prices for just basic accommodations. That left us with the Algoma Motel.

It doesn't look like much from the outside (or from the inside for that matter), but it delivers where it counts. Sure the room decor is dated and the bathrooms are straight out of the 1950's (pink and green), but they are very clean and fairly comfortable for a night or two. They offer homey touches such as free coffee and muffins in the morning, and there is also free WIFI access if you travel with your laptop.

The towels provided in the bathroom are quite thin and small, and the only toiletries offered are institutional wafers of pre-wrapped soap, so bring your own!

I wish there were better choices in Wawa, but at the same time having to pay any more than $60 a night for accommodations in this town is, I feel, highway robbery.

  • Liked — The location is convenient to everything in town.
  • Disliked — The rooms are desperately in need of an introduction to 2008.
