This is the second time we've stayed here and were not disappointed. The rooms are very clean and it's perfect for snowmobiling. The trails basically start right out of the parking lot which is big enough for many trailers. Everything you need is on site except for coffee but there is a Tim's literally next door. Highly recommend!

A great hub for sledders. Everything you need is right around you.

The rooms are extremely clean and updated. We had a wonderful stay and spent time chatting with other sledders which was great

Owners are lovely and so knowledgeable of the area. We were made to feel very welcome. We would stay there again and highly recommend doing so on your journey.

Stayed here a couple nights .We were here to see the Polar Bear Habitat. Very clean rooms, friendly staff and owners treat you very well. Close to lots of restaurants, gas stations and a Tim’s right beside them. The owners go out of their way to serve you and are very friendly and trustworthy! They went the extra mile for us and I wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again. Top notch service and within all the amenities.
I highly recommend this place. In my opinion it’s one of the best motels I have ever booked.

Just finished another successful sledding trip to Cochrane. Stayed at Westway Motel once again. No issues at all. Owner is excellent. Rooms are clean and warm. Lots of room for trucks and you can park sled right in front of room. Definitely will be back.

The motel is clean, neat and tidy. The water pressure in the shower is great and some rooms have fridges.

The room was clean and wonderfully maintained - there was a hairdryer, the beds were comfy and the cable channels were excellent.

We stayed as part of the Polar Bear Express package - staff were courteous and the location was good - it was not right next to the train station but easily walked to or a cab was under $5.00.

Great stay - no pool or exercise room, but worth the money.

We were looking for a place to stop in Cochrane on our way home from Thunder Bay. We stoped at the Chimo Motel because it advertised "clean rooms." Well their idea of clean and my idea are two very different things so I went across the street to the Westway and found them very helpful and the rooms very clean and nice. Would definitely stay there again.

My wife and I spent a night at the WestWay Motel after the highway in Cochrane closed. At first, we were put into a very small single room but the owners, (who were extremely apologetic and very nice) quickly moved us to a bigger room. Though the decor is a bit dated the owners were extremely helpful in directing us to a warm meal after a long, wintery drive. They also helped dig our car out after a raging blizzard when it got stuck, (twice), trying to get out of the parking lot, (it wasn't their fault - the snow was ridiculous and the plows were all working overtime all over town).
Anyway, I would stay here again in a heartbeat. It's not an ultra-fancy chain hotel but it certainly was comfortable.

If you have extra cash in your wallet and no real plans for it, then the Westway Motel in Cochrane is just the place for you. For about $40 more than it is worth, the Westway provides you with a lovely 1970s decor and TV for that nostalgic night on the road. What would cost maybe $49 a night anywhere else, you can have for $89 at the Westway. Don't hesitate. Book today.

Every time I've been to Cochrane, I'm always drawn to the Westway, whether for a night or a few days. Being family own definitely has advantages. Well maintained, very clean rooms, relaxing atmosphere and always welcomed with friendly smiles. Easy access with ample parking, amenities are very close by, only a few minutes away from the train station, or downtown.
The best way for a quiet, relaxing night is the Westway.
