This is obviously an older hotel that is need of renovations, however, effort is being put into this. When it is complete this should be a nice place to stay. Staff was very personable.

The location is good. After many, many trips through Cochrane I decided to try this one. The room looked like it had been furnished with the discards from a charity shop. The linen was not the cleanest. One of the pillow cases looked like someone had used it as a handkerchief. The bed felt like it was going to sink...

On my previous trip I stayed at the Best Western. Fantastic property but way beyond my price budget. On this trip I figured I would try the Thriftlodge based on reviews. The motel delivered exactly what I thought it would, comfortable sleep at a more affordable price in a clean room. If you want the lap of luxury, stay at...

Stayed there twice on a recent trip. The place is clean and comfortable, and easy to find. The management went beyond expectations to deal with a couple of issues we had.

We were travelling through and looking for a place to get some sleep. There were other higher priced places near by but for the time spent I couldn't justify the price. So I gambled on this little spot and it paid off. It is motel style. Clean and comfortable. It is by no means fancy or modern. There was a...

Stayed here with my husband and two grandchildren for one night. I had heard horror stories about hotels in Cochrane so I was a bit worried - I had even tried to talk my husband into staying in Timmins and driving to Cochrane in the morning. It ended up that I was worried for nothing....the room we had was spacious...

Gender issues maybe? Upon arrival I went to the front desk, said hello and said we had a reservation. The clerk took some time to finish an email and then greeted my husband exclusively, pointedly ignoring me. Also only gave us one key card because I guess I don't need one. Cheap but still not worth it.

We don't usually expect much from places when we travel through northern Ontario, but this place was nice and clean! And pet-friendly too! The owners were very nice and friendly. Would stay here again 😊

To start the staff was very friendly and accommodating. There is also a restaurant with tasty food in the same parking lot, which is very convenient. The beds seemed to be clean but that was about it. After getting in the shower I realized the bathroom was probably not cleaned. There were hairs and a used bar of soap left...
