Where to stay in Windsor

Accommodations in the border city cater primarily to transit travelers, with a range of motels and basic inns serving as affordable places to rest. Look to Huron Church Road--the main thoroughfare approaching the border--for the biggest selection of transitory accommodations. If you're hoping to explore the city itself, you can find a few more inviting hotels in the center, with the most exclusive of these offering views over the Detroit River.
