This is the perfect spot to stay. The view is amazing and you are close to everything and everywhere you could possibly want to go. The rooms are comfortable and they have everything that you would ever need. We will stay again!

Old and dirty unfriendly staff, not a great location, loud at night, didn't feel safe in the area of town. We will be coming back to thunder bay but staying at a different location as this was a bad choice.

Dear Guest Thank you for sending us your comments as they are important to us as it helps us improve our service and facilities. Sorry to read that your stay was not a pleasant one. Port Arthur Downtown with the marina, many night clubs, restaurants and casino within a short walk is becoming the place to be. The Price Arthur...

When we arrived in Thunder Bay late afternoon, we had difficulty finding a hotel. We were told the only hotel that had rooms was the Prince Arthur. It is not a hotel we would have chosen on our own. However, we found the rooms clean and modern. Parking was easy and accessible. Wi-fi was included, plus there is a pool...

This is a good place to stay for location. The view is really good of the Marina and Lake superior including the "Sleeping Giant". There are lots of restaurants around, but the desk doesn't recommend any of them. They just said "walk around and find one". There is no microwave, the a/c is noisy. The guy at the desk reminded...

Well, the staff were incredible actually. The room was small and this hotel is very old, being probably one of the oldest hotels in the area. We would not stay here again I don't think unless nothing else available. Our room faced the city side as opposed to the waterfront. We could hear every car and truck go by as...

I visited this hotel with my wife over a weekend and selected the suite looking towards the lake and the Sleeping Giant. I mean the view was beautiful but the suit had sofas that looked like purchased straight from the thrift store and one recliner was broken in one of the corners of the living room. The bathroom was old...

Amazed TripAdvisor books this downtrodden hotel. Checked in and were given different room than we booked. Got moved only to find sheets had not been changed on one of the beds. Dust everywhere on every surface, old furniture, missing light bulbs. Windows all sealed shut. Dirty dishes lining the hallway floors. We gave back the key and left.

This is an older style rairplway hotel. We stayed one night, room 529, in a queen lake view room. The room was large, spotlessly clean, etc. Bed and betting were very good. A/C worked as it should. Bathroom was small as is the case with mant of these older hotels but it was on perfect condition. Lots and lots of...

This is an old style hotel, originally built by the railroad in 1911. As a result the rooms may not live up to the expectations of some travellers. That said, we found it to be clean, fairly well maintained considering the age. The front desk staff were very helpful and anxious to make our stay an enjoyable one. The waterfront...
