As soon as we opened the door, we knew we couldn't stay there. There was the stench of urine in the room and floor was very dirty. The owner/manager wasn't available, so we simply left to find somewhere else to stay and ate the cost of the room. We called him to let him know, and he was very nice... More

We travel a LOT. We have stayed in many Delta Hotels, Hiltons, etc....all at a whopping price for nice decor. Sam is the friendliest owner you could ever meet, if you need something, just ask he will get it for you. The rooms are OLD, he is busily trying to update each one. New bathrooms, little kitchenettes, it is a... More

My family spent three nights here during a stay in Thunder Bay. The motel was simple and older but had some nice updates--comfortable beds, updated bathroom. The family suite we stayed in had two bedroom areas separated by a wall and a simple kitchenette with a funny stovetop/refrigerator combination, but all functioned well. Gas grill in the common area if... More

Other than the owner being a very accommodating person and the rooms were somewhat clean, but the walls were paper thin and the dust was a little too much. A bit more effort would make this place great but the owner seems more intent on keeping you there with idle chit chat and diversions about the city and the new... More

My husband is traveling across country and I am booking hotels for him. I booked this hotel last night. They accommodated us no problem; it was cheap, clean and quiet, though it smelled quite stale. The staff were very courteous. This is the perfect spot for a budget traveler.

We are a large family, and we had already been turned away from one motel because of no vacancy. It was late, and we were desperate to hurry and find a room. We had never heard of this motel before, but we saw it as we were passing through, so we pulled in. The outside is kind of creepy, but... More

I had the misfortune of spending two nights in this dump. I would never EVER recommend this place to anyone, and here is why: - there were dead flies in the screen door - the entire room stank of cigarrette smoke (even though it was supposed to be a non-smoking room) -you had to jiggle the front door just-right before...

We have been coming to Thunder Bay May to June for some time staying at name brand motels. This year we are trying something different and after a little internet checking selected the Old Country Motel. We saw it last year and were less than impressed!
