“use it as a last resort.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Stayed here a couple months ago, while i was checking in, the owner had me standing at the front desk (even ringing the bell) for nearly five minutes while i could see him sitting on his couch the back room. And he was terribly unwelcoming and rude. My room looked decent for a cheap motel though..

I had recently stayed with the Kingsway Motel as i was in town for a week and a half on business. I was peased with the hospitality and how clean they kept the rooms. The location is great to lots of places to go eat in the area and close to the core of Thunder Bay. It was prity busy most rooms were occupied with mostly business or family travellers who were friendly and pleasant. The best prt i would say was the rate I saved lots of money by choosing the Kingsway Motel over bigger hotels and enjoyed it just as much. I had tv with cable wireless internet mini refridgerator microwave renovated washrooms and phone with free local calls. Thank you Kingsway Motel for a great stay. I will be staying here gain in the future I recommend this establishment.

Room Tip: Good up keep maintenance and good price.

We stayed in this motel a few years back and boy we have not forgotten it! The room seemed clean enough but there were the little things. The water in the bathroom would vary so much that we could not take a shower. We used the laundry room on site and there was a creepy old lady that just sat there and watched you. She was the owner Grandma but it was still weird. Not in the best part of town and I think they get a lot of customers that pay by the hour. Would stay there in a pinch but not longer.

We arrived the motel in 30/6/2012 at 11:30 PM, the manager refused to show us the room pretending that there is a law allows him to not show rooms to customers after 10:00 PM. We accepted that as there are no any other options around.
The room was non-smoking but it is stunk and smelled like booze & cigarettes. The carpet was awful to the degree that I prevented my family members to take off their shoes. Towels in the wash room were dirty and stained. My wife killed a spider and stayed awake all night waiting the second to kill. The switches on the lamps were broken off.
You don't feel safe at all! Early morning we checked out at 6:00 PM, and when I got the key back to the manager explaining the terrible situation inside the room which is given for 99$ for one night, he was so aggressive, impolite, and rude.
DON'T STAY HERE!!!

Our 1 week stay at the Kingsway Motel was above and beyond what we expected. One of the reason we enjoyed staying at The Kingsway Motel was the excellent service provided by the owner and aswell as the housekeepers, very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed free Internet, complimentary coffee in the mornings, free local newspaper, daily cleaned rooms and the washrooms look like they have been newly renovated. The owner was very welcoming and made our stay memorable. An amazing price for an amazing stay.

I will defintely recommend Kingsway motel to anyone coming to thunderbay with great value on price too.

When we arrived at the motel, the owner was at the front office to greet us. He was very pleasent to speak to and was very helpful in advising what restaurants were good and site seeing we should do. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. And the cleaning staff was very friendly. We stayed at the Kingsway for a 3 day weekend, while visiting some family. I would recommend this motel to any family as it was clean, affordable and close to the city centre.
