We (2 couples) stayed at the Tundra Inn on a March trip to Churchill, made to fulfill long-time interests in overnight train travel and in search of the Aurora Borealis. Both objectives were fulfilled, and the Tundra Inn was an ideal base of operations for our time in Churchill. Belinda provided much valuable assistance in making advance arrangements for aurora viewing from a Tundra Buggy and for a dog-sledding excursion, assembling a package deal of which several guests took advantage. She and the rest of the staff were very helpful in providing tips and suggestions about their home town on the shores of the frozen (in March) Hudson Bay. The center-of-town location is perfect for walking at most a few blocks to anything you might want (diner, grocery store, Eskimo museum, "beach", train station)--a key consideration for a carless visit when temperatures are mostly below 0F.
Accommodations at the Tundra Inn were roomy (ample space for boots, parkas, camera gear, etc.), clean, and comfortable. The serve-yourself contentinal breakfast was basic and convenient. I use the "very good" rather than "excellent" rating only to let those TripAdvisor readers who look for luxury spas know that the Tundra Inn is not one, but that's not why one goes to Churchill. The Tundra Inn is an excellent basic motel, well-run, welcoming, and comfortable. We would stay there again should our travels take us back to Churchill.
