The Bad

Every once and while a guest mentioned that the hotel's location was not the best for the Thunder Bay airport. The location was also moderately criticized as one where hotel patron's needed to have vehicles to get to the hotel.

A couple guests were disappointed that their rooms lacked microwaves as not all rooms had this amenity. 

Occasionally a guest had trouble with the Internet. One patron claimed that it was inconsistent and a couple others thought that it was insecure.

Lastly, there was not a lot of praise for the prices of the room rates at this hotel.

"First night screw-up - had to stay in a smoking room first night, but was then transfered to a non smoking suite the next three nights. The smoking room was very smelly of course and not clean. A hair shampoo bottle from a previous guest behind Hide-a Bed and a pen top on the floor beside bed. Vacuuming quality suspect. Otherwise the hotel was as expected."

"The maid knocked on our door to clean our room 8am. She waited a half an hour and came back again. We were not checking out on this day and I think she could have cleaned the rooms of the people who checked out before trying to do our room twice. Also I think in a nice hotel such as yours to charge $2.50 for a bottle of water was an insult. We were asked when we checked out if we used the water so they could add it to our bill. When paying over a $100 a night I think the water could have been free."
