We have been coming to Thunder Bay May to June for some time staying at name brand motels. This year we are trying something different and after a little internet checking selected the Old Country Motel. We saw it last year and were less than impressed! But, after discussion with the owner felt it was worth a try.
We looked at 3 rooms before settling on room 4. It has been a good choice. The dividing wall gives us a living area with the sleeping area by itself. It is clean, cheery and rather relaxing after a day's work.
The new owner (as of January, 2012) is steadily improving each room one at a time and as a professional contractor knows how to do it right and well on an economic budget. (No slip-shod patches - tear it out and start from scratch.)
Yes, the walls are concrete block and some with paneling and noise travels; but, I have been in noisy expensive motels too! The motel does not make the noise.
We have been in over 100 different motels over the last few years and spend half the year on the road and return to the ones we like. This is a "like"!
And if you take room 4, take care of it. We want it back next year in its pristine condition.
