Property Description

Well kept and clean motel with many of the big chain amenities including attractive pricing, continental breakfast, picnic tables and grills, kids play area and front yard swings for watching the bay. Rooms are all on the main floor so no steps or walking, parking available right in front of the room. Across the street is the beach and volleyball courts and a great walking park. Our suites have full kitchens and kitchenettes, and there are rooms with two full double beds and other rooms with one queen bed each. All rooms are equipped with a refrigerator, microwave oven, cable TV and complimentary coffee and coffee pot. We are located close to restaurants including one right next to our property. Pizza and other fast foods and also the mall are all within walking distance, yet the location is very peaceful with the best view of Thunder Bay in town.
