My husband and I travel to Saskatchewan 2-3 times a year and Thunder Bay is our stop over. We don't like to pay much for a hotel because we only sleep in it for a few hours, shower and hit the road. Our problem is that we travel with 2 small dogs, so our options are limited. We have stayed...

Do yourself a favour and pay a little bit more for a better room. Rooms smell very musty and the bathrooms are in serious need of work. Walls are very thin. You can clearly hear the people in the next room. Every toilet flushing and bathroom fan is audible in your room. Noisy guests. If you complain to the front...

This place was disgusting! As you can see from the photos this was a dirty dirty place. Black mold on the ceiling around the ac unit, the bathtub black from the dirt, and the bedding all torn up. I was trying to find another place to stay while in the town and everything was booked up! I would have rather...

We were trying to be the nasty winter weather from Manitoba to southern Ontario in January and pulled into the Econo Lodge in Thunder Bay. The front desk clerk was super nice and helpful. Showed me our room prior to booking. I have started to ask to do this so there are no nasty surprises. The room was small but...

It's an econo lodge, it's basic. The rooms have been recently updated and the location and price are right. There is a McDonalds, Boston Pizza and Quiznos near by. I've never had the lobby breakfast..

Spent an overnight at the hotel to catch a flight on the morning. Hotel is relatively well lit on a main road (Memorial) in Thunder Bay, with a mall and box stores relatively close by. Very reasonable rate. Paper thin walls unfortunately where I stayed, so I got to listen to one of my loud neighbours for a few hours...

Really great place to stay. Clean and very comfortable. For the price paid it was one of the best places we stayed during our driving trip across Canada. Breakfast was basic but well stocked. The staff were very friendly and efficient with check in and check out procedures.
