The Bad
Guest complaints for this hotel were rare and without much concentration on any particular issue.

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.
