Valhalla Inn
Ranked #8 of 33 Hotels in Thunder Bay
Reviewed 8 July 2014

I stayed here two nights - the first and last nights of my trip.

The first night, my flight was delayed and i didn't get to find a room til 9pm but they had one free and at 11pm i checked in and they had a note in the room for me with fresh cookies, which was a nice touch.

Each room was immaculate, big comfy bed, big flatscreen TV , fridge, free wifi, a nice new spacious bathroom - pretty much what you'd expect from a four star big chain hotel rather than a local hotel.

The last night i ate at the steak restaurant and had a great meal too.

The hotel is very close to the airport - at the end of the Runway, and ideal for late night arrivals and early morning departures.

I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Thunder Bay. I'll be back next year with my Wife.

Nothing really stood out, good or bad. We were on the first floor which has not been remodeled and we didn't see the remodeled stuff either. But, even for being dated, it was still pretty nice. At 6'-2" tall, it was nice to have a shower head that was a decent height in an older hotel. The staff was courteous. Our stay was essentially just an over night.

The room was super out dated, the decor was pretty brutal. Our room had a slight scent of smoke but it was nice that it was quiet, the bed was comfy, and we had the option to park right outside the room. Not sure I'd stay again.. We requested an "updated" room because we heard half of it was recently renovated, but we definitely got the older/"ghetto" side.. Overall for how much we paid, it was disappointing..

Thank you for taking the time to post a review about our hotel. The convenience of our ground floor, outside access rooms are quite poplular with many of our guests. Our hotel does have renovated guestrooms on three of the five floors and we are happy to accommodate this preference upon availability.
We do hope to see you again.

Just got back from a 2 day stay there and enjoyed it very much. I used the weight/excersize facilities and they were OK but not first class. By the pool so mornings when the pool is not full is best. The room was great, loved the coffee in room!(Kuerig). I rented a boardroom for a sales demo it was fine, exactly as expected. The bedroom had the split level floors The lower level went to the quadrangle green space, and had folding chairs outdoors to enjoy the sun.
Ate breakfast which was great as well. No surprises and everything worked!

In the last year we have stayed here three times on business. We saw on the internet that the rooms were very nice. NOT. Each time we were given a room that is tired and depressing. This week the room not only horrible it smelled. The first time we asked at the front desk why was our room not as advertised and the answer was you would have to pay to upgrade! That the rooms were currently being redone. We paid the going rate and booked two weeks in advance. We were not told an upgraded room cost more. We should have learned our lesson but like the location near the airport. We hoped this last time we would end up with a better room The stairwells are filthy. The room carpet stained and frayed and the bedspread extremely worn. The bed was made very poorly with the sheets not tucked in. Fortunately we have discovered there are now other good options coming to Thunder Bay.

The Valhalla has done a substantial amount of updating & renovating since the last time I was there. Some things didn't change though. Still great service, friendly staff, clean and quiet. The kids enjoyed the pool and we enjoyed how dark the curtains made the room and how quiet it was at night. We'll be back next time we go to Thunder Bay.
