Though the Strathcona Motel's website mentions their included free WiFi, it's not mentioned prominently and could easily be overlooked by the traveler scanning the many Googled hits for Thunder Bay motels. The WiFi is fast and has a strong signal in this small motel with wonderful mini-apartments. Janis, the wife in this motel owner team, booked us even though we mistakenly phoned before they expect calls at 4 PM (they normally book via emails) and Ken greeted us at the door of our little suite complete with sitting room and charming kitchen. We would not hesitate to stay at the Strathcona again even if Ken & Janis sell this gem after it being in Ken's family for over 55 years because I can't imagine them selling it to anyone that would not give it tender loving care. The Strathcona is an excellent value which we were delighted to find.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Family owned and operated since 1956, the Strathcona Motel prides itself on being clean, quiet and affordable. Steps (or cycle) to gorgeous parks located in the Current River Greenway, an 18 hole municipal golf course and other attractions, you won't regret spending the night in this residential setting. We believe that a comment left by one of our guests recently says it all: "Your place here... it's really a hidden gem." We invite you to come and stay with us and see if you aren't charmed too. ... more less
