Right across from the locks and walking distance to everything in downtown Soo MI. Super quiet, super comfy room, delightful staff, and parking right outside your door. The breakfast was surprisingly varied and good. We would stay there again if we are in the area again.

My husband and I had a cabin in the back area of the complex. It was very clean, well appointed, and quiet. The location right across from the locks was a real plus. It was also great to be within walking distance to many restaurants and stores. Would highly recommend and will stay here again.

After several pleasant nights at this little motel, we will no longer stay here in the future. To begin with, our Labor Day reservation (made May 4th 2015) was not honored. We specifically asked and were assured we would have a cabin on the MUCH quieter and less congested West side of the motel. This was not the case when...

Wanted an acceptable sleep-cheap near the locks and it exceeded expectations. The queen-bed room in one of the rear "cottages" was spacious, the tiny bathroom exceptionally clean and the included breakfast offered at the office, had a surprising number of hot and cold options. Soo Locks are right across the street but the sounds of bells and horns did not...

We've visited the Soo Locks many times, however this was our first stay at the Lockview Motel. Really surprised with this great motel, kicking ourselves for never staying here in the past. The room was much larger than expected, we came with my parents and had adjoining rooms which provided enough space for all 7 of us. The best part...

This hotel is affordable, comfortable and incredibly clean. The people are very friendly. We stayed in a cottage, it was a little small, but sufficient. The location is great, it's directly across the street from the Soo Locks, however, you can't really see anything from your room due to the tress in the park. It's still convenient to walk to...

Have stayed at this property several times over the course of the past 30 years. Location can't be beat. Proximity to restaurants and souvenir shops excellent. Appreciate "quiet time" that hotel designates beginning at 10pm. However, the cottage we stayed in needed new mattresses and the room had very musty smell. My wife & I could barely walk after sleeping...

We had a double full room that was very small, the air conditioner was old and smelled and did not cool the room, the entire room smelled like stale cigarette smoke. They had no rollaway beds so our grandson had to sleep on the floor. Although there is wifi, internet is terrible. We couldn't wait to leave.

This is such a find. First, I must mention that the beds are incredibly comfortable! I have traveled many places for business and stayed in expensive hotels and have never had a better night's sleep than at the Askwith Lockview Motel! The location was so quiet for being in the middle of everything. Such a peaceful night's sleep! My husband...

We stay at the Lockview every time we go to the Soo. The location is awesome if you love watching the boats like we do. The price is reasonable and they put out a very nice breakfast every morning. The room we stayed in could use a new mattress but that is the only complaint. The cleaning staff does a...
