Staff was friendly and accommodating. The room we stayed in had two double beds, a mini fridge, and microwave. The bathroom was clean and spacious. When we arrived ( stopped on our way through from NB to AB ) I put my 2 year old son in the bath tub, cleaned him up and put him In his pyjamas, and... More

For the price, this is a nice little find. Very basic, but clean and friendly. It's located on an old motel strip in a semi-industrial/ commercial area, but is less than a 10 minute drive from the north downtown where there are several good restaurants. We accidentally left a suitcase in the parking lot and the owner managed to track... More

Good stay and cheap rate...good for families that aren't rich...I'd recommend to these families that don't have much money. Kids enjoyed the privacy as well and nice view to Lake Superior ....good service

Traveling by motorcycle solo makes it hard to call ahead or really research places to stay ahead of time. I usually just spot a place stop in and use my gut to tell me if it is ok. This place was perfect to stay an evening in. Perfectly clean and comfortable for me. Carpets were clean and the bathroom spotless.... More

My stay at Lakehead was very nice. My room was fairly dated (not recently renovated) but very clean and comfortable. I had a regular room (not a suite) but it had a microwave, mini fridge, and a little kitchen table. The price was great ($60 on a Wednesday night) and for that price this motel exceeded my expectations. The WiFi... More

Not only is this hotel affordable, the owners go above and beyond to make sure you are happy. Rooms are extremely clean, newly renovated with brand new bathrooms, new flooring and carpeting. The suites are a great deal! No more staying at expensive hotels for us.

We were looking for a cheap place to stay for a few nights as we dropped off our son for Lakehead University. After reading the reviews on TA, we went ahead and booked this hotel. It is just like the reviews state, nothing fancy but very clean and the owners were always available it you needed something, for example there... More

I travelled to Thunder Bay late in September, and needed 4 nights accomodation. Being self-employed I was trying to keep the expenses down. With the Valhalla being $150 a night, I managed to stay 4 nights for just about the price of one at the Valhalla. I took what I thought was a chance on the Lakehead, and was happy... More
