The reviews for the Northern Lights Motel intrigued me so much that I just had to give it a try for our first stay in Wawa. And when I corresponded via email with Maureen, who owns the place with her husband John, her warm and friendly replies made me look forward even more to visiting the place. The Motel is...

We were delighted with our overnight stay at the Northern Lights Motel in Wawa. Very comfy and immaculate. We loved the funny signs in the bathroom and the congenial hosts.

Because of Wawapalooza we couldn't book accommodation in Wawa proper so continued a short distance west on the TransCanada Hwy and found an unknown gem in NORTHERN LIGHTS MOTEL & BREAKFAST. Like a home away from home with all the personal TLC at the front desk, in each room and great breakfast in the morning. Where else can you find...

I visited the motel in August on my way to Thunder Bay. The Northern Lights free breakfast alone is worth the stop. The rooms are excellent with a collection of humorous sayings scattered through-out the room. You are always treated as valued guests by the owners. A stop I never miss when travelling west on 17.

This place is a treat. If you are anywhere near Wawa and miss staying here, you have made a big mistake. The facilities are great, but the atmosphere and personal touches make it outstanding. A very good breakfast was just icing on the cake.

My wife and I visited in July 2011 during our move across the country. We found the motel a very unassuming, quaint motel. Simple in features but full of heart and humour thanks to it's tremendous host Maureen. Upon our arrival we searched the town of Wawa for dinner and drink but the small town was mostly closed and we...

Four of us took two rooms at this roadside motel. It's a bit pricier than others on the north shore, but a good value and no one else includes breakfast. We had a very late check-in, but the proprietors made our keys accessible with no problem. The rooms were clean, with lots of nice touches like a selection of magazines...
