Where to stay in Sault Ste. Marie

Like most smaller border cities between Canada and the USA, Sault Ste. Marie caters primarily to visitors in transit. The town's accommodations work mostly for one-night stays, with a selection of budget and mid-range motels and motor inns along Queen Street East, just shy of the border. A similar selection of basic accommodations lines Great Northern Road--the main artery out of town to the north--and Trunk Road, which heads northeast.
