“Dirty Hotel”
Reviewed August 9, 2008

I made arrangements via the hotel Web site for an overnight stay at the Valhalla Inn for two people with two beds in a non-smoking room. When I arrived at the hotel they gave me keys to a room with one bed. The room was dirty with stained carpets. The hallway carpeting leading to the room was even worse. I explained the situation to the hotel staff and I was told they gave my room away to a wedding party. I left the hotel and I would never return ever.

Used to stay here for business. Great service, never had any problems. The only thing keeping me from giving the hotel a 5 is the 70's room decor and the odd time that the water would not get hot enough in the morning.

The room service menu is great and priced very reasonably. Try the nachos they're great.

Stayed at the Valhalla Inn for three nights while visiting Thunder Bay. The decor of the hotel are dated but at least the rooms are clean and large. The housekeeping staff are very friendly and always said hello when guests passed by on the hallway. There is broadband Internet available in the room, but it is not wireless and higher speeds are available at a charge. The food at the hotel restaurant (Timbers) is not great and took a long time to arrive.

  • Liked — Cleanliness of the rooms.
  • Disliked — Outdated decor.

We went here unexpectedly after booking a truly horrible room at another hotel in town. They gave us a very reasonable rate and the accomodations were top notch. This was worlds above some of the other hotels in town for about the same price.

I found the room attendants, bar staff and night manager to be extremely rude and unaccomodating......when stafff was questioned as to why i was refused my dinner order, they were very rude....prices are also extremely high for the outdated and well used accomodations...pool area and fitness equipments are very outdated and not a nice area to relax in...cobwebs on the windows were a nice added touch...cleaning is obviously not high on the priority list

Even though we haven't stayed at the Vahalla Inn for quite some time,It'll remain my Hotel of choice in Thunder Bay. To the reviewer complaining about the price of the rooms,I'd much rather pay the extra few dollars,and be assured of a clean, high quality,secure place to stay. Their standards are consistently higher than other Hotels in the city,and I can be guarenteed that there won't be any "riff-raff" dancing up and down the hallways at 2 in the morning.
Our check-ins have always been efficient and smooth,and all the staff,from the front desk,to the housekeeping staff,friendly and helpful. We have never had any problems associated with the Vahalla--something that speaks volumes for returning guests.As another reviewer pointed out,the ground floor rooms are great--you can sit outside in the lovely,well maintained courtyard with a beverage in hand,or with the outside rooms,be rest assured you can check on your vehicle at a glance. The pool area is lovely and inviting--well lite,good location,plenty of room to take a dip,sauna,or whirlpool,or just sitting and reading the newspaper.Good for families--the kids always had a "splashing" good time when we stayed there. The Dining room is fine-the buffets that the Vahalla Inn run during the week are wonderful-selections are plentiful,and the food good. The Sunday Brunch was to die for--a bit pricey,but otherwise "outstanding".It's a treat that everyone needs to do,at least once. Did I mention,that the rooms are very quiet (I never once heard my neighbor),and the doors don't sound like a cannon going off when being closed.How I hated being woken-up from a sound sleep in the middle of the night,at other places,because of "slamming door syndrome" on every floor. The rooms themselves,are clean,well-appointed,and worth the price. No smell of cigarette smoke anywhere.A/C, heating worked well, bathroom well lite with coffee maker and hairdryer, adequate counter space to put everything. I will definately be staying at the Vahalla Inn again.Unlike other Hotels,I would rate the Vahalla Inn,a must stay when in the city.
