Terrace Bay, Canada

After staying at some of the new hotels in Thunder Bay and some of the not so new hotels in Thunder Bay and paying the very high rates, I decided to look for a new place to stay in the city, I had to be at the airport in the early morning, so I looked for somewhere close to the...

The price was right and the bed and bath were clean. Those are the only good points about this place. Check in went well and the outside appearance was pleasant enough and then we opened the door. This was a seedy motel in the 70's and not much has improved in the rooms. The sparse furnishings were mostly broken and...

My GPS lied... this is no way part of Holiday Inns group. Having said that it was the only place with a vacancy.. it was after 6pm. It is located in a residential neighbourhood. As others have said a basic clean older (60's) place with an appropriate rack rate. Currently the walkway in front is being replaced so you end...

A great place to stay and the owners are the friendliest people who went out of their way to be helpful. Our room reminded me of a little cottage. It was cozy, clean, comfortable, with everything we needed!

Just look at the title of the review. It's not a holiday inn! Don't be fooled by that for sure. Privately owned. The office is in the owners kitchen/living room. The first room we got was nasty with cigarette smoke but we moved to one that was ok. Told if we used both double beds we would be charged an...

Clean and spacious room with comfortable beds. AC was working well on a very hot summer afternoon. This motel is a bit dated but that is why the price is reasonnable. There is, however, no restaurant within walking distance, which we prefer after a day on the road with motorcycles. Overall, a good experience.

the window mount AC unit does nothing to actually cool the room, but it does blow in the wonderful cigarette smell from the first floor room...yuck..at 32c outside it may actually be cooler outside than in my room

This is a well kept and clean budget hotel in Thunder Bay. We stayed in the large suite unit which was great - it had two rooms plus a bathroom and two queen beds plus a king. Good for a family! Owners were very nice. Definitely a retro hotel though - don't go in expecting a 'real' Holiday Inn!

Stayed here for two nights, found it a little like the kitchenette motels my family visited as a kid. It was very clean, though, and perfect for our purposes (visiting friends and staying with our dog). We had a room without air conditioning, but because it was a bit chilly outside it didn't really matter. Everything was easy to find...

This is a nice low price place to stay. The owner was friendly and very accommodating. Nice comfortable room. Easy to access when traveling and close to downtown and places to eat. I had no issues with any of the complaints I have read about this place.
