First, the good. Everyone that works at this hotel is very friendly and the cleaning staff work non stop to keep the place clean. A task, I might add, that would be a lot easier for them if the management would invest in a boot scraper. They had a very poor one when I first arrived that I was able... More

This hotel is the only hotel worth staying in at Fort St James but after saying this it is a hotel that lacks service and is way overpriced based on what you get.

Over priced, horrible service, definitely a nice view in the right room. 199.00 for a single room in the middle of very little is stealing. Because you supply display and shampoo does not slow you to take advantage of your clients. Yes it's a supply and demand world, but there is a limit. As for the food, there is so... More

This hotel was pricier than our budget even with the desk clerk taking pity on this senior couple and taking $30 off. The room was delightful with all expected amenities and the bed was THE most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The lobby and hallways were rather mundane. We had a great dinner in the restaurant but the breakfast... More

We were really surprised my wife and I to found a place like "The View" in such a small town as Fort St James. The rooms are pricey but really comfortable and clean.

I visited here en route to Takla Landing. Hotel staff were very friendly upon arrival. I was excited when I was told I had a lakeside view, not so excited to see the HVAC system blocking said view!

Don't let the outside fool you! Inside is as nice as you can find even in a big city! The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The beds are wonderful! I wish the food in the restaurant was a little better. They need to use more fresh products.

Unplanned stop in Fort St. James left us hanging between a motel where a room smelled like cigarettes/pot and the View. At $140/ night in July, the View was still overpriced but that's what you get in a no-competition environment.
