Red Lake Info

Red Lake Tim Horton's
Two big name corporations are establishing themselves in Red Lake, Ontario this winter.  The first, is one of the more popular restaurants/coffee shops in all of Canada, Tim Hortons.  Tim's is a casual fast food restaurant known for it's coffee and donuts. It is also Canada's largest fast food service with over 3000 stores nationwide.  Just imagine a Dunkin Donuts.  Amazingly Tim's is growing faster in Canada than mega fast food giant McDonalds.  Guests will immediately notice Tim's on the right side of 105 just before you arrive into Red Lake.  

Super 8 Red Lake
Tim's and Super 8 are next door
The second business firing up in Red Lake is a welcomed Super 8 hotel.  The Super 8 franchise is scheduled to be completed by spring 2012.  This motel is reported to have 65 rooms and are a much appreciated addition to the limited hotel scene in Red.  With such a gold boom occurring in Red Lake, hotels in the past were often booked solid with mining exploration teams.  Some guests noted they were required to make reservations six months in advance.  Attached right is progress of the Super 8 as off 12/7/2011.  The hotel is located in the same area as Tim Hortons.  Visit the link below for a visual Google Map.
