Reviewed 12 June 2014

I'm sitting in room 38 in mid June 2014. I saw a combination on Tripadvisor that I use as a good measure of a place...mid pack rating in the top few lowest prices. In this case it was ranked 11/25 and 3rd out of 25 for cheapest price.

The place is old. Kind of retro back to the 1960s when the street out front was the main drag through town heading north. But old is not synonymous with bad. It's just an old shape, an old layout and well...just old school.

But the windows have been upgraded to vinyl, the carpet is basic but clean and unworn and the air conditioner newish and works well. The furniture is typical hotel oak laminate, hotel Wal Mart style prints on the wall, clean paint, 1980s brass lamps, new discount flat screen, newish bedspreads, fresh tile and hardware in the bath. It comes with a mini fridge, coffee maker and microwave on a big counter.

And it comes at a $75 tax in price for a no reservation walk-in.

Decent. Clean. Big room. Solid bed. Strong internet. Quiet.

Good room+Good price=Good place.

Room Tip: Book directly with the hotel. Every time I use Trivago hotels.com Expedia etc, the rates are NEVER l...

We checked in to this hotel after reading all the good reviews of others. Yes! This is a nice and clean place to stay on your budget. Easy access to all the places. Front desk and housekeeping was friendly and helpful during our two nights stay. I could recommend if you are looking for a descent place in downtown within your budget, then go here.

Room Tip: Upper floor rooms are non smoking

Room Tip: Cheaper rate when you reserve direct with motel.

I only stayed for 1 night whilst travelling on the Jasper to Prince Rupert train. I arrived at about 20.00h and check in was straightforward. The room was large and clean with 2 double beds and it also had a microwave which was handy.
The hotel was about a 20min plus walk from the railway station along dimly lit streets. I would suggest using a taxi during the hours of darkness.

The rooms are shabby, but clean. Be advised that there is no temperature control, so if you are staying for multiple days in the winter or summer, be sure to keep the A/C unit on at a low setting if you don't want to arrive to a freezing or boiling hot room. I stayed in January, and the room was freezing every morning, and every evening when I arrived "home". The staff are all pleasant, and the room rate is reasonable. Plenty of hot water in the bathroom, good quality TV (no movie channels, though).
