We spent the 2nd night of our 17 day road trip to Yellowknife & back at this location. We especially headed for it as we had stayed there previously (before the devastation) in a motel unit. This time we got the last space available, cottage # 3 which was a lovely 2 bedroom place with all the amenities & the...

John and I thank you so much for the wonderful review! We are so happy that you enjoyed our 2 Bedroom Cottage during your 17 day adventure. And thanks for giving others a "Heads Up" when it comes to making reservations in advance. So many travellers don't know that vacancies are few and far between in the north, and end...

This motel is quirky, funky, funny! We weren't impressed when we pulled up: the motel looks like any ol' budget motel, right by the side of Hwy 17 (with trucks and tourist cars whizzing by), next to a Ford dealership, in the middle of nowhere (a good 10 KM or so from the town of Wawa). But when we walked...

Thank you so much for the 5 Star Review! John and I just love when people feel that our place is Quirky, Funky and Funny! We always felt that life was too short to own a BORING Motel, and have spent 18 years trying to put a smile on our guests faces! :-))) We sure hope to see you again!...

Every possible need is accommodated. Wonderful service at the front desk when I was confused about my reservation. Well equipped, squeaky clean, spacious and adorable room! Wish we could stay for a few more days.

Thank you so much for the great review! John and I are so happy that you enjoyed your stay! We do all the cleaning ourselves and love when people call the rooms "Squeaky Clean". That's what we are shooting for! :-) We would love to have you stay again! Cheers! Maureen (Mo) & John

In July 2016, I was on a transfer move from 3 provinces over and we stayed one night at the Northern Lights Motel and chalets. The owners Maureen and John were great. I was with my little family and we had book on their website on our way from Thunder Bay. Upon arrival, Maureen offered us the chalet for less...

Stayed in one of their Chalets on August 2 2016. We loved the many bedrooms and large deck. Plenty of room for our party of 7. What set apart this property is the attn: to detail. Every room had something clever and thoughtful. The bathroom had band-aids, q-tips and other items in small envelopes with clever writings. The deck had...

We stayed here on our trip around northern Ontario and were pleasantly surprised. The owners take great pride in their motel and it shows. They will go to all lengths to ensure your stay is comfortable. You do need to reserve for anywhere around Wawa though as accommodations are limited in the area and we saw many people being turned...

We are a family of 4 plus our dog who spent one night at Northern Lights. We were so pleased! The room was immaculate, comfy beds and pillows, and such a clean bathroom. I would highly recommend staying here. Lots of really cute touches in the rooms! They even supplied rags which was great to clean our dogs paws! Don't...

We stayed for one night. Don't let the exterior appearance fool you. The interior of the motel room is fabulous. The personal touches were very welcome and made our stay more comfortable. The room was clean and spacious. We didn't hear road noise. The preteen boys appreciated the satellite television. And the bathroom was lovely.

We stayed here July 11, 2016. We asked for a room for pets, which we got and the charge was minimal. They were prepared for and open to our very late arrival (1:00 a.m.). The room was equipped with every single thing we could have wanted and more. There were helpful and funny messages and information around the room to...

Great owners, clean rooms, lots of hot water, quiet, satellite tv with instructions. Many little extras, like a projection alarm clock, fridge, coffee maker, band aids, q-tips, emery file, cotton balls, cartoons, 2 shower curtain rails - one for curtain and one for hanging wet towel. The room had a fan but no air conditioning, but it was cool that...
