This is kind of an odd hotel. The rooms are very small but seemed clean. The breakfast room was also small and the breakfast small. This was our first lodging on our motorcycle trip around Lake Superior in September of 2010. There were other motorcyclists staying there also. It was sufficient for our purpose.

... unique experience that cannot be seen anywhere else in the United States! The Locks consist of two canals and four locks that allow vessels of many types/sizes to safely traverse the 21-foot drop in elevation of the St. Mary’s River between Lake Superior and Lakes Michigan and Huron. From viewing decks, you can watch "Lakers" and "Salties" (ocean-going vessels) as they travel the seaway between ports and navigate the rise/drop of the water levels.
Leaden grey skies and rain welcomed us to Ontario as we passed through Kenora, home of Husky the Muskie ( a sturgeon or Jackfish?). The scenic route wove a path around Lake of the Woods with over 17,000 islands that all seemed to have beautiful cottages, docks and every size and shape of water transport. Taking the northern trucker route to Thunder Bay was a little shorter but ...

But, we also noticed that the place has lost some of its charm--we haven't been there for over 10 years!
We back-tracked toward the hotel . . . and checked out more closely a restaurant we had driven by: Studebaker's It had ...
... Just the way we like it.
We entered the lock from St. Mary's River and had to rise up to meet the level of Lake Superior. We passed under the International Bridge which connects Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan with Sault Sainte Marie, Ontario. While on the water, we passed some very impressive freighters including the American Integrity which, at 1000 feet, is one of the longest ships working ...
... Blue heads over the Mackinac Bridge to St. Ignace on the shore of the upper peninsula and we take a heading for Saulte St. Marie and the town's famous locks that connect Lake Huron to Lake Superior. This famous route allowed ore carriers to travel down to Detroit to fuel the motor city's hunger for iron. Unfortunately, our weather luck runs out at this point. We drove straight into thunderstorms. At 4 p.m. it ...
