“Clean, but that's about all this place has going for it.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2011

I was visiting Thunder Bay with frugal friends and they booked this hotel, which cost $72/night (I guess that's reasonable for this area). I would not have chosen to stay here and definitely won't stay here again. A resident manager checked us in and I immediately knew what we were in for...he had on shorts, a saggy tanktop, bare feet and BO. Rooms are very dated--old furniture, small old television, no alarm clock, no wi-fi, no shampoo. Luckily, I arrived late and left early the next morning, so I was asleep for 7 of the 8 hours that I occupied the room.

Stayed July 2011, traveled with friends

Traveling from Winnipeg to Sault Ste. Marie to visit family. Not knowing Thunder Bay very well, we were tired and didn't want to keep driving so we took a chance, as the outside didn't look too bad. It was dirty inside and very noisy- seemed like a truck stop type of place. Didn't get much sleep for all the noise that night and were a little afraid that it may not be that secure at night. We couldn't wait to get out of there in the morning and we still talk about how bad it was.

What a duimp!!!!30C and no air-conditioning in any of the rooms. The carpets were so dirty (one can't imagine), that the NWHU should be notified, as this is very unhealthy. The owners should be ashamed to rent out these rooms for $65 per night. I shouldn't rate this place a 1-star, but the location was good for us. If you decide to try it (which we strongly recommend not to) make sure you have your own toiletries, as there weren't any. Nothing more to say-----DISGUSTING
