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... More

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.

First time in Thunder Bay and it was actually the Trip Advisor reviews and price that led me to the Econo in Thunder Bay. From the outside, I was like OK, this does not look good at all. Low and behold on the inside, I was impressed. The hotel itself is clean as a whistle, the room was very nice,... More

Probably average for this area but I can't give it three stars. One of the exit doors was busted so access was difficult from our 2nd floor room. Not sure what the hold up was but it Looked like it had been this way for awhile. The rug in the room was the sort you didn't want to walk on.... More

I was passing through Thunder Bay with a few friends in July 2016 and I had booked a room at this Econo Lodge for a night. All in all, it was just okay. The check-in process didn't take too long. Our room on the second floor was pretty basic. It was clean enough and my friend and I got an... More
