GREAT CHOICE! The hotel sits on the Thunder Bay River, it’s easy to walk Downtown, parking is easy, it is clean. The beds were soft, it was quiet and the breakfast was adequate with omelets, sausage, a pancake maker, yogurt, abd bananas. We would definitely stay here again if traveling in this area. A solid choice.

The whole floor is taken over by loud, nonmasked jerk parents and their kids. The staff and cleaning staff is fantastic and completely unsupported. This is usually a great place to stay. So if it’s safety you want, don’t come here!

My opinion o f this hotel in comparison to many others I've stayed in while working as a Flight Crew Member is very favorable! The rooms are always exceptionally clean, the hot breakfast has many options, the gym is clean and larger than most 'standard' hotel gyms, and the location of the hotel is within walking distance to many local shops, restaurants, and even some newly opened bars. Always a pleasure staying here.

Made reservation on central reservation number. Requested a handicap room. Was told one was available. Got to to the property. Asked if room was handicap accessible. Was told it was. Went to the room, saw walk in shower and thought all was well and went to dinner. Room had no grab bars or handicap toilet. We were unable to use shower. In the morning clerk said it was a hearing impaired room and would make no price adjustment. Totally unacceptable for the price of the room.
