  • 8.0.Very good

    It is easy to find and location is perfect for travelers who like very quiet place.Customer service is pleasing and helpful.The place is old but clean and also affordable.It is close to all amenities and lots of beautiful places to see around the area.Peacocks,black bears and elks are few animals so drive with caution.

  • 2.0.Poor

    The hotel will likely be condemned in the next year. The concrete is all cracked on the upper level and the bedroom floor was uneven. The bed was as hard as a rock.

    Disappointed 😥

    Front desk service was friendly. Room had an old odor and we had no hot water for either of us to shower. Our room was beside the laundry room so we was loud in the am an actually vibrated the floor an furniture when the washer was in spin cycle. We would not book again.

    The hotel was in a nice location close to the river. Not far from Port Hardy at all.

    Bed was saggy on one side, whole area outside smelled like a septic pipe had burst. Gag worthy. Garbage container not covered outside, some beast had a smorgasbord in the middle of the night. Town was full and the price was right. Not very good.
