We spent the night on our way to Manitoba, Canada. We were given a room in the lower section in the back, which was very nice. It was like a log style house. The room was comfortable, but it sure could use a good cleaning. Don't look behind anything, it is covered with dust. They offer a continental breakfast that... More

The Wawa Motor Inn is an average hotel in desperate need of updating! Beds and bathroom were clean but the carpet was dirty and the furnishings well-worn. Attached restaurant had decent food but poor service. Not a lot of hotel offerings available-don't believe what you see online!

Be aware a # of hotels showing availability on the internet in WaWA, Ontario no longer are in business & rest stops in CA on the north shore of Lake Superior are few and far between. What a treat to stay at the Motor Inn-cute knotty pine room, comfy beds, & a nice breakfast. Would stay there again.

I'm so happy I decided to keep diving further north today because this place is where I ended up. The front desk staff was probably the coolest, no BS guy so if you like fast check ins...staff in lounge warm and friendly, the locals at the bar are friendly and happy to give travel tips and local spots to explore....

We stayed here twice enroute to Thunder Bay. First time in the upper level rooms which were fine. Second time in the lower cabins, nicer view, a little rustic but clean, comfortable and spacious. All in all, a comfortable place tax a normal price. Lots of money has been spent lately to upgrade this facility. Not many choices in Wawa,... More

My husband and kids were tired from driving and had stopped in Wawa to look for a motel room. We were lucky enough to get the last room at this motel. We were tired and it was late. The room was clean and we were glad the tim hortons nearby was open 24 hours. The free breakfast was good. The... More

I've stayed several times. log cabin rooms are a cool novelty but get tiring week after week. They tend to be a bit dark inside. Rooms on top of the hill are recently renovated and are brighter and thus appear cleaner. Up top or down in the cabins, I always get one with old mattresses. Beds need to be changed... More

Weary Hwy 17 travelers...beware. You have got to stay here ! I drove in at 1am, tired, 3 kids in tow. The night desk lady is simply a breath of fresh air. Checked in less than 5 min.

There are other places to stay in town or close by, we have stayed at others before, but we are glad we stayed here this time. We were very pleased with our room. It is dated for sure, but it was clean, fresh, and exceptionally spacious. We booked well in advance, and with the issues we had with my bike... More

The area around Wawa is amazing. Lots of picturesque locations and beautiful landscapes. Great swimming in Lake Superior. On to the hotel. The rooms are about average for a motel. Relatively clean and in good condition. Where this hotel loses marks is my coworker and I had probably the worst customer service either of us have either received. We showed... More
