First the good. A charming old hotel with large rooms. Perfect location at the waterfront next to the train station and walkway to the Marina. The prices are reasonable! The bad news, only one elevator for 5 floors, Old style CRT 28" Tvs, the hot water takes a long time to come and the hairdryers are almost obsolete and take...

Dear Guest Thank you for your comments and for staying with us while in Thunder Bay. A 2nd elevator is available just on the left side of the front desk if the main elevator is busy. We are also in the process of changing over our TV's to flat screens, as it stands now, all of our suites have flat...

Being a older hotel is very clean and great view stayed here twice once in July and again in august. The staff was friendly and eager to help with any questions or concerns. Located right downtown Thunder Bay well worth the drive has pool and sauna gym and in house bar and grill.

The Prince Arthur is located beside Marina park, near the casino and within walking distance of several excellent restaurants. This is mainly important if you would rather not drive all over the city and prefer to walk. There is a pedestrian bridge and crosswalk right outside the hotel that both lead to marina park and its many features. The hotel...

Dear Guest Thank you for stay at the Prince Arthur Hotel during your visit to Thunder Bay. I can't agree with you more, the Waterfront District is the place to be. . With many restaurants/pubs, local shops and casino all within a short walk. Not to mention our beautiful marina park that hosts many events through out the year, splash...

It looks like the owners have stopped the investments on this hotel. I'm sure it used to be the chic place downtown, long ago. The worst part is that we could not sleep. The door is thin, the room was facing the elevator. The smoke detector detected that its batteries were at their end of life and it went off...

Dear Guest I was a pleasure speaking with you the other day regarding your stay with us. As I mentioned during our phone conversation the other day, we check every smoke alarm daily and batteries are changed every 6 months or sooner if needed. It is difficult to predict when a battery will start to beep. If given the opportunity...

We stayed twice at the Prince Arthur hotel last month during a trip by private aircraft. The main reason why we came back the second time is that the hotel offers a free shuttle service to and from the Thunder Bay airport, thus saving us the considerable expense of taxi fares. A night's stay including this service is excellent value...

Reviewed 4 August 2014

I love old buildings but this one needs a bit of work. There is a strong smoke smell on all floors and some rooms require repair and up keep. It also doesn't help when the room next door decides it is a good time to play guitar and smoke weed into the late light. With a two inch gap under...

The Prince Arthur Hotel is good value for money. Make sure that you ask for the walk-in rate that is advertised out on the highway, otherwise you will pay too much! The hotel is clean and tidy and the rooms are comfortable and equipped with refrigerator and coffee maker. Breakfast in the hotel dining room is tasty and quick -...

We arrived at Thunder Bay on a dark and stormy night---and after a quick search of the downtown area, the looming brick and concrete ediface of the Prince Arthur Hotel beckoned with its warm light and grand entrance. The years have worn some of her beauty, but the bones are good. The rooms themselves are perfectly adequate. Like many historic...

After booking and reading reviews on this site - I had very low expectations for this hotel. However, I found that the front desk was helpful and kind. I also found that our particular room was clean and well-kept. The view of the Sleeping Giant from our window was great. The location, near the water, was walking distance to restaurants...

A lot of leeway has been given to this ol' gal over the years because of her history, but unless the current owners invest some money into her she will be losing repeat clientele. We stayed there recently because of the location - right across the street from Bluesfest. If not for that we would not have chosen the Prince...
