Askwith Lockview Motel
Ranked #7 of 18 Hotels in Sault Ste. Marie
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 20, 2007

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.

We were pleasantly surprised when we drove up to the motel. We had a "cottage" room, and found it quite spacious and clean.

The best feature of the motel is the location. It is near the shopping district, and right across the street from the visitor's center of the locks.

We certainly would stay there again.

Reasonably priced, right across from the locks. The breakfest was ok, rooms were very clean and large. We would stay there again. Staff was also very nice.

We stayed at the Lockview while on our Lake Superior circle tour. It is conveniently located right across the street from the locks, and right in the downtown tourist area. This is a small, clean, and comfortable standard motel probably built in the 1950's. We enjoyed sitting on the upper deck at night watching the tourists. In the morning the motel provided an above average free breakfast. The price is reasonable, and I would recommend staying at the Lockview.

This is my favorite motel. It has everything I look for. Clean, comfortable, quiet, above average breakfast, and great location. On top of that the price is perfect. What more can I say.

We had no idea what to expect when we pulled into town, since our only criteria for picking the Lockview were price and the fact that they said that the locks are across the street.

The Lockview turned out to be an excellent value. Spotless rooms, comfortable beds, friendly staff and as centrally located as one could ask. We had a room along the street, so we could watch the ships lock through from our window. Our room had a decent sized refrigerator as an added bonus.

The restaurant next door was also a good deal.

Another bonus was the lost-in-the-Fifties charm of the place and that crazy neon sign! We recommend the Lockview unconditionally.

We stayed here twice on our recent trip to the Soo. Rooms were clean. The breakfast was good too. Would recommend to anyone. It is a good value for the location.
