The Lockview's name says it all; DIRECTLY across the street from the Soo Locks. Even in the middle of the night, if you walk out of your room, you can hear the gentle "hum" of the freighters locking through. Nothing that would possibly be a disturbance, just something for those night owls to enjoy.
The rooms are very spacious and clean. The breakfast is better than usual for a continental, and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We were on a motorcycle trip with 12 riders and the lady at the front desk gave us all the tips to avoid the long lines while coming and going across the International Bridge.
The location is perfect for walking to the shops and restaurants in the area. The newer, "cottage" rooms are excellent, even though they're set back a bit further from the road than the original motel. At $75/night, I'd definitely recommend the Askwith Lockview to anyone staying in the Soo.
