I was pleasantly surprised with my recent stay at the Carmel Motor Inn. We checked in very, very late with no reservation and the staff was more than accommodating. The room had been mostly renovated and was very clean. The bed was comfortable and the price was excellent. I would definitely stay here again.

I had low expectations, so was pleasantly surprised! The hotel is adequate, but better than most other motels in which I've stayed. And the staff was really friendly and helpful. They provide a reduced-price voucher for the near-by restaurant which makes breakfasts super convenient. The location isn't downtown, but Prince George isn't a big town. Would stay there again.

We pulled into the motel after about 12 hours on the road so were rather beat. It was clean, the bed was decent and shower okay. We were again given what we realized was a traditional Canadian hotel practice...one WiFi password code. Upon asking if we could get more codes since there were two of us and I was also... More

We were visiting our daughter who is at UNBC. Stayed three nights, clean quite room, lots of parking and good restaurant next door. We liked having the mini fridge and coffee maker in the room, we didn't feel the need for the kitchenette but they have them if you reserve one. My husband and daughter enjoyed the prime rib buffet... More

Hi tina909, Thank you for your review of our hotel.

Pet friendly rooms were quite nice, a bit on the small side and the housekeeping could be more thorough, but nice. Wifi was advertised but was marginal from our location at least. A very nice restaurant shares the same name but not the same owners Enclosed dogwalk is provided. It is difficult to get into this place if you are... More

We stayed for one night. Recommended by friends and family, I too would recommend this motel. They have rooms with microwave, fridge, and coffee maker. They have rooms with kitchenettes for a small fee. I would recommend you book early for one of these to avoid disappointment. It's not very far from the airport and they have a buffet place... More

We spent one night in July 2014 on a trip through British Columbia. The desk clerk made a few recommendations for dinner and we chose the restaurant next to the motel. The beds were comfortable and very clean. We would stay here again and highly recommend it.

We stayed 3 days and it was clean and comfortable! Having a fridge and microwave is something that not many hotels have (unless you pick a pricey one) and that was a pleasant surprise. The house keepers did a wonderful job cleaning! Definitely going to stay there again next time!
