Where to stay in Thunder Bay

The city center doesn't offer much in the way of accommodations, with the relatively industrial surrounds featuring little to interest tourists. Most visitors stay north of the center along the waterfront, where Water Street and Cumberland Street offer the biggest range of motels and inns. Here, you'll have views over the city's marina and port, giving you a sense of the region's maritime culture. Arthur Street West, which sits at the entrance to the airport, offers a range of motels and chain hotels perfect for visitors just passing through the city.
