I do not know where the recent review folks stayed, but it was not in my room. I think this place stays alive because there are highway workers who need to stay somewhere. The pillow smelled of smoke (Non Smoking Room). Plastic on the cheap dressers? Come on.
To say the place was dated is a real compliment. OK, let's be fair......for $65 it would be "OK". For the $90 I paid.....HELP! Unless you are a desperate traveler as I was, forget this one.

This motel is more like a housekeeping cottage than a motel. Other than your food it has everything you need for your entire stay. We have never found another motel with so much to offer at very reasonable prices. Given a senior discount made this even better. I look forward to our next stay here.

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Northland Motel and we were quite pleased with our stay. The room was clean and comfortable. We've seen a few other motels in the area and this one was by far in the best condition. It had everything we needed including cable tv and wifi. We didn't have any trouble sleeping and couldn't hear any traffic noise. We'll stay here again on our next drive through the area.

A clean little place if a bit dated but comfy beds and a good value. Bob, the owner , was funny, helpful, pleasant and kind .The bathroom left a bit to be desired,rather scummy, not enough towels, no shampoo and we had to flush the toilet to get hot water started but we have stayed in worse for a lot more money.

We've stayed at the Northland in winter off and on for a decade. It's been our go-to base for ice climbing in the Nipigon area. Generally we've had good experiences, but this trip we found the place to to be less enjoyable. The room (#103) was adequately sized, with a living area that included a kitchenette, bathroom, and a separate bedroom. The kitchenette was poorly equipped, in contrast to other kitchenette rooms we've used. No bowls, no mugs, no sharp knives. The stovetop rattled when the frig compressor kicked on. The picture window was broken, though still in place. Given that it's been a brutal winter up there I can understand why they might be waiting for spring to replace that as long as it's intact. However, the very tired mattress on the bed is less forgivable. Also, note that the temperature in room 103 is actually controlled from a room next door. This made for some issues - a couple nights when we slept with windows open (outside temperature: teens Farenheit) to stay comfortable, and one evening that we returned to the room to find no heat at all. We only met one of the staff. She was very helpful in finding us bowls, and with the heating issues.

There is a lot of road construction in this area, and it may be that the Northland owners are making acceptable money without renovating. If you're NOT coming to the area to help with the construction, there are better options in Nipigon.
