Nice hotel but there is very little ventilation in the rooms. The only vent we had was a small vent leading out to the pool area. Even though is was late fall and the outside temps were low the rooms felt stuffy.

An okay experience.
This hotel isn't ultra-modern but they make up for it with their service. When I arrived in Thunder Bay in early June to winter-like temperatures, they were very prompt to offer me a heater for my room and extra blankets. I had to ask for a clean coffee cup when I discovered that one looked used already. Clean cups were brought up to my room within minutes. The pool was busy with birthday parties, but not overly crowded. I was able to enjoy the hot tub in relative peace. Service at Chicago's Joe's, the attached restaurant, was great. The food was good and the server was super friendly. We ate two meals there and the manager came around each time to check on us, which is nice touch. Also check out the Seattle coffeehouse across the street! Friendly service, delicious food and warm ambiance. Overall, I was fairly content with our stay. PS. I forgot to mention that if you get an adjoining room, you can hear EVERYTHING that the people in the next room are saying, specially when it's quiet at 2a.m. Ask for a room that does not join with another if you want a good night's rest. Or bring earplugs.
