Property was clean, only gripe but minor is how small the bathroom is, door stop is adjacent to the tub so want to be careful not to step on a steel golf ball.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
On the western outskirts of Thunder Bay, the location is perfect for a one night stopover on a cross country road trip. Dinner is available at the hotel and a hot breakfast is included. Staff were friendly and accommodating, but the dining room could use more help.
