“Good value and very clean”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

This is an older 60's style basic motor court style motel. The rooms are a little small compared to newer motels but plenty big enough for the two of us. But, the room was spotlessly clean and everything worked well. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Comfortable bed. The continental breakfast was the basic juice, donuts, cereal, etc. with a pretty good assortment. A couple of negatives but nothing that would prevent us from staying here anytime we are in the area. There was some noise from traffic going by. It might be better on the side away from the road. There wasn't room for seating in the breakfast room so seating was outside or take it back to your room. Neither was a big problem. Overall, the room was very nice for the rate we paid and we will stay here again.

Clean, comfortable rooms and bed. Nothing plush, but excellent value. Generous continental breakfast. Outstanding servicetoo: next morning we discovered our tire was flat. Owner cheerfully whips out air compressor, fills the tire, saving us a long wait for road service. We'll come back.

We stayed at the Crestview Inn during a recent weekend trip to the Soo. Our daughter is a student at Lake State, so we have stayed at several of the other chain hotels in the area. The staff was extremely friendly, beds were comfortable and the entire property was spotless! Keep in mind that it is a motor lodge, so the rooms are smaller than the national brands. We were only in our room to sleep, so it worked out great! Terrific location and great view into Canada. The only recommendation I have for travelers is to pack your hair dryer, as our room didn't have one. Other than that, we've already recommended the Crestview Inn to other LSSU parents. Looking forward to our next trip north!

I was there for a week for the Cableas NTC and it was great. They set us up for electric for the boats and the owner and staff treated us like family. They accomodated our ever need and that was great. Rooms were always cleaned, comfortable and economical in price. Best bargain while visiting the Soo. They also have a grill you can cook your meals on that made it like you were at home. If you ever go there and go to fish you have to talk to the owners son. He is very knowledgeable on the fishing in the area and he can direct you to some spots to fish.
Again, great job owners and staff.....

Thanks for the great review! We really enjoyed having you and the rest of the fisherman stay with us for the week. While parking all the boats, trailers and trucks was a challenge, you guys made easy work of it for us. We can't wait until the next big tournament brings you and the boys back to the "Soo"!

Old style motel. Park in front of your room. Rooms need updating, but were clean and everything worked properly. The beds were comfortable and there was a Refridgerator and Microwave in room. Dog friendly too.
The location is just north of the main retail stores and restaurants in town, and straight south of the shipping locks on the river. Just go to the end of the street to the north, and you are at the viewing area to watch huge ships go through the American Locks.

Room Tip: If you need more space, ask for a room that has it. we had a room practically as large as two, whic...

Thank You for being our guest and taking the time to write a review. Realizing that we do have an older property, we take extra effort to make up for that short coming with exceptional housekeeping and quality customer service. We also routinely upgrade our guest rooms and amenities. Our most recent improvements include new bedding and flat screen TVs throughout the motel and several new furnishing including chairs and carpeting. Being both family owned and operated, we take pride in offering our guests quality accommodations at very competitive prices.

We spent the night here on our way up and also back from Canada. The motel is dated but maintain and more importantly clean. Our room was spacious and came with cable TV, refrigerator and plenty of towels but no hair dryer. The shower was immediately hot and the pressure was strong. A toaster, microwave and all day coffee & tea was available on the premises. Indoor dining is not available but outdoor dining beneath an awning is an option if you do not want to eat in your room. Breakfast consist of juice, milk, cold cereal, oatmeal, donuts, pastry, toast, bagels, peanut butter and cream cheese. The desk clerk was friendly and provided us with excellent information on where to eat. We met the owner the following morning and found him to be attentive, very friendly and shared memories of places mutually visited. Budget Host lives up to it's name. I recommend it if you are looking for a low cost, clean alternative to the chains.

Clean? Check, Comfortable? Check. Economical? Check. Those and easy check in with friendly owners and staff make the Budget Host Crestview the best bargain in the Soo. This is an older "motor motel" a bit off the beaten path. Seems the interstate passed them by but that means they are located in a charming neighborhood and not surrounded with traffic, strip malls, fast food joints and gas stations.

Walking to the free breakfast in the morning I observed licences from eight different states and as far away as California. Discerning budget travelers know a good thing.

If you are looking for good, clean inexpensive lodging THIS IS THE ONE.
