5 out of 5

Quaint hotel, friendly owner run, a real gem.

Pros: Comfortable, character, friendly owners.
Cons: Maybe a hot breakfast instead of continental?
Location: Across the street from Thunder Bay, beautiful sunrise. Next door to best restaurant in town and just down the street from many other places.
I stayed here with two of my boys. The room was old school road side hotel with the essentials updated nicely. The two beds were VERY comfortable, and the room was very clean and well taken care of. The owners make it a real experience, they moved here from South Africa to follow their dreams and they seemed to have found it.
