“Comfortable and Convenient”
Reviewed July 25, 2010

We made a last minute switch from the HoJos to the Companion Motel and when we arrived in Hearst, we were glad we did. The motel was right adjacent to the arrival point for the Algoma Central train from Sault Ste. Marie which was perfect for our needs. Our room was neat and comfortable though no frills. We appreciated the indoor hot tubs after a long day of travel and unseasonably cool temps. outside. The restaurant was pretty good for dinner. All in all, this is nothing special but it's the best in Hearst from waht I could tell.

Based on a glowing Trip Advisor review, we selected this hotel as we made our way through the vast expanses of Northern Ontario on our way to Thunder Bay. No doubt the hotel is well located (but then again, everything in Hearst is located on one road). The room was pretty basic needing a bit of an upgrade. The mirrors by the jacuzzi were a bit much and the bed mattress was old. At $100, it was a bit pricey, but then again, they pretty much have a capture market. Not much around in Heart and the competition isn't that great either from what we could see. FYI back of hotel fronts on rail yard while the front is just off Highway 11.

We arrived in Hearst around dinner time after a day long trip on the Algoma Central Railway from Sault Ste. Marie. The Companion Motel/Hotel was literally right opposite the platform that serves as the station for the northern terminus of this wonderful scenic railway. The front desk staff was extraordinarily friendly and helpful. We were pleased to find a very reasonable restaurant in the motel where the food was completely decent and the service, once again, very friendly and responsive.

The rooms themselves were pretty standard motel fare but everything was clean and comfortable.

We also couldn't help noticing that the snowmobile trail which followed the railway also went by the motel and we gathered this was a popular layover in the winter for those traveling through on their snowmobiles.

On our brief visit, Hearst itself seemed a pretty sleepy town. Culturally, despite being in Ontario, it is French Canadian which made it a good deal more interesting to us than some of the other places like Cochrane where we stayed on this trip. Unfortunately we didn't get to spend much time there since we had to board an Ontario Northland bus for Cochrane at 5:00 a.m. the next morning. The good news was that the bus stops at the Esso station, just a three or four minute walk west of the motel.
