I have visited the Wawa Motor Inn many times, on many trips to Wawa, and I have to say that lately I have become disappointed with this hotel.

The rooms are still clean and comfortable and a decent place to get a night's sleep (and the log cabins are very nice for small groups), but the service level has been sliding for a few months now.

The front desk staff have become less helpful to wayward travellers. Though not outright rude, the people I have dealt with this stay were condescending to me when I showed up early (not by my choice). I know I was early. I was simply inquiring if a room was available yet. Muttering something about "Check in is at 2" behind my back as I walk away is not necessary.

The restaurant however is taking a downward slide. I understand there was a recent change of management. The food was good before. Not spectacular, but good. Now it has slid to a smaller menu with food that is pricier at lower quality. The wait staff also has gotten grumpier and slower than before. (There was one pleasant one that I was very happy to deal with, but most of them seem less than happy to be there.)

Overall I will probably still stay again, as it is still the cleanest and most comfortable place in Wawa, but I certainly hope the service slide does not continue.

We stayed one night during a two-week bicycle trip around Lake Superior. We arrived at Wawa after one of our shorter days and took advantage of extra time by roaming into Wawa. The motel is on the near edge of town, but it really doesn't matter as there isn't much in town to be honest.

Our room was a bit worn and at least soon to be out of date, although in an inoffensive, not really bold anyway kind of way. We really didn't mind as our room criteria revolved around whether there was room for two bikes, and our room was fantabulous in that regard. Bathroom and shower were nicer than others on our trip - wow, we even had a hair dryer in the room!

We ate dinner at the restaurant on the premises. The dining room is pretty interesting given the huge rock fireplace and timber-frame roof structure. The food was in the "not to bad" category. My steak was actually done properly and hinted of dry aging, so I consider that pretty good for motel fare.

All in all, I think this place was fine and if you don't need to be pampered or among the tourist-elite, this place will do the trick.

The room was clean and quiet. But the notes around the room were all rather threatening: use our towels for your car and you'll be charged $250 cleaning fee!!! Smoke in our rooms and you'll be charged $250 cleaning fee! I had to get my credit card verified for a larger amount in case I skipped out without paying a meal or phone...to cover the hotel's butt (words of the reservation worker). They really don't trust travelers.
And the breakfast voucher was for $3.99. Of course the cheapest thing on the menu (oatmeal) was $5.99. So no free breakfast...and I felt like they thought they were fooling me.

room, front desk staff, fantastic.
restaurant: worst meal of my life
$17.00 for a frozen chicken cutlet and spaghetti was cold, from the fridge cold.
I asked to have the spaghetti microwaved and it came back warm on the outside and spaghetti was as cool instead of cold.
The worst meal of my life.
Never again.
