“Away from the City”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Just 20 miles out of Thunder Bay. It was an alright hotel, old but clean. The staff was helpful in suggesting places to eat and where the falls were. Our room was not soundproof you could hear when other people arrived late into the night and when they left early. I don't think I would stay here again.

We stayed at the Telestar for 5 days in August, the previous review was generous at best. Clean?yes but the room was not tended to during our stay, apparently the housekeepers were done for the day at 10am which was earlier than we were ready to be off f. Fresh towels were available, no problem., Decor most like a 1960's rumpus room. You should have a category in ratings to indicate not quite poor but certainly less than average. I do agree this is probably the best Kakabeka Falls has to offer.

Room Tip: room not facing the highway would be optimal.

If you ever happen to be in Kakabeka Falls for some utterly spectacular sightseeing, you'll be happy to know that you can find a nice place to stay. Reception at Telstar Motel was very congenial and helpful; we enjoyed being treated with civility. Our room was clean, comfortable, and yes, there is satellite television too! This location is also just down the road from the falls, so you don't have to worry about a long trek to sightseeing. It is also is fairly close to Thunder Bay so you can enjoy the benefits of visiting the big city while not having to stay there.
