There are two motels in White River: the White River Motel and the Continental Motel. Both are just outside of town on the trans-Canada highway, about a ten minute walk from the VIA Rail station that serves as the terminal point for VIA's thrice weekly Lake Superior train service. (In theory either motel will pick you up at the station which might be useful if the weather were lousy.) Walking out to the highway to get to the motel, I passed through the small park dedicated to Whinnie the Pooh (it is said that the story of Whinnie the Pooh was based upon a real bear in White River). I stayed at the White River Motel and ate dinner across the street at the Continental. Happily, despite a delayed arrival, I was still able to get dinner and a glass of wine at 9:30 p.m.
The White River Motel was clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. Unlike the Continental, they do not have a restaurant. Also, the high speed Internet didn't work in either the evening or the morning (the staff were nowhere in sight when I checked out).
