    Pretty good for a budget motel


    We stayed one night - driving through - travelling from Manitoba to central Ontario. The beds were fine, it had a fridge and microwave - there were a couple of restaurants within walking distance. We wandered around the neighbourhood after eating. Mostly residential in one direction, an empty rail yard in the other. We found a black mark on one of our sheets, and the manager (who lived onsite) replaced it within 10 minutes. The WIFI worked well. I was disappointed that they had no coffee maker - every motel has a coffee maker, don't they? Of course there is no pool or breakfast included, but we don't need that every night.

Re: Thunder Bay Hotel Suggestions

hey i'm from Thunder Bay. It depends on what you are looking for. Keep in mind that everthing in thunder bay is never more than a 15 dollar cab ride away. if you just need a hotel for the night near bars try econolodge on memorial ave. if you need a week or so are trying to save money then there are plenty of cheap hotels that have weekly reates on cumberland st or arthur st. if you have any more dteailed questions feel free to ask.....

Travel Tips for Thunder Bay

The Marina Park and Waterfront

by basstbn

Situated right on Lake Superior, Thunder Bay has an attractive water front park and marina, with several eating places in the old depot. Watching a fire works display over Lake Superior at the end of the Canada Day Celebration. Thunder Bay is far enough north that it is after 11:00 at night before it is dark enough to view fire works.

The Ojibwe Elders' Memorial

by yooperprof

These carved wooden statues stand near the lookout of Mt. McKay (also known as Thunder Mountain.) They attest to the importance placed in native communities of respecting older people for their insight and wisdom. What an interesting concept!

What to bring

by chris_i79

With Thunder Bay it really depends on the season. Summer is generally quite warm and winter is brutally cold. Winter
You will need multiple layers of clothing. A good warm jacket, a fleece, long sleeve shirts. If you are coming from a warm climate it will feel twice as cold.

In the summer shorts and t-shirts is fairly normal, although lately the weather seems to be changing every half hour. So bringing rain gear may be wise. Fly repellent!! The mosquito is thought to be the areas national bird!

Some history of the waterfront

by chris_i79

Thunder Bay is the first port on the great lakes coming from the western praries, for this reason the port of Thunder Bay used to be one of the biggest in the world, all of the wheat from the west was shipped by rail here and then loaded on boats for destinations around the world. This is a picture of the grain elevators that dot the waterfront of the city. Unfortunately the profit of the past has left a large part of the waterfront industrial....and with the grain no longer flowing out of the harbour like it used to...there are some giant eyesores on parts of the beautiful waterfront.

The longest and highest suspension bridge inCanada

by chris_i79

About a half hour East of Thunder Bay near the town of Dorion is Eagle Canyon Adventures. It was opened in 2003 and has 2 suspension bridges that span Ouimet Canyon. The first was opened in 2003 and spans 300 ft. The second bridge was opened in 2004 and spans 600 ft. The longest in Canada (beating the Capilano suspension bridge in Vancouver). There is also camping facilities near by.

I will upload a photo if i make it out there...check out the website though.
