Clean, basic, nothing special. We went to the front desk to ask for a taxi, and the lady working there was sitting on the couch in front of the fire (yes there is a fireside seat at the fireside inn). She asked if we had a phone. Yes we do but it's long distance - don't get up or anything!... More

I have responded directly to the guest to provide an apology for this behavior. This is not our standards for guest services and we have a Staff meeting scheduled for July 10, 2014 to deal with this issue as we are not a fancy hotel but we pride ourselves on being friendly and hospitable, this type of behavior by one...

While working in the area, we stayed at this hotel for over a month and our total experience with Scott, Christina and the whole staff in general was unreal. The housekeeping staff provided us with exemplary service, clean linens, and on several occasions, "even doing our dishes", which was not expected but really appreciated. We can't say enough about the... More

We stayed at this hotel during a hockey tournament in Castlegar. Our room was very clean, beds were good with nice duvets. The breakfast was somewhat simple but pretty good. The folks running the place were very nice and accommodating. Will definitely stay here again for the next tournament.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The staff was very helpful in assisting me with directions and making plans for a future stay. The rooms are very clean and tidy. Great continental breakfast. I look forward to staying here again.

Anyone looking to stay with a team, this is a great place. We were allowed to use a huge common room that connected to two of the kids rooms. This allowed us to serve all the meals together and have a lot of time together. The staff was excellent and the hotel was very clean and quiet. Breakfast was always... More

This place in Castlegar is centrally located. The pool is at the Super 8, across the road, and they have some agreement with them. The included breakfast is decent. It has the "make your own waffles". If you have a mobility problem, the stairs to the upper floor are fairly narrow. Ask about that first. Good value overall.

This hotel is okay if your not looking for something fancy, it is not a Best Western. Very old. If your a smoker you won't be able to open the window as there are no screens on the windows. It is located in a central location with shopping and restaurants all around. Good continental breakfast with waffles, fresh fruit, cereal,... More

This accommodation is quite good. We had a pleasant sleep. The room was quite comfortable, and the staff was very accommodating. When we asked for another pillow, they were able to find one quite quickly for us. There was someone at the front desk 24 hours a day, which puts you at ease as well. There is a continental breakfast,... More

We have stayed here numerous times over the past couple of years and although the hotel is old and in need of some TLC the service was always great and the staff were friendly and fun. I don't know what has changed but the service is now as tired as the hotel. On our arrival a self-important little man came... More

I would not have stayed in this property, had it not have been prearranged for a motorcycle group event. I was under the impression that there was a pool and spa on the property, but soon discovered you had to cross the street to another hotel. The beds were comfortable and the room adequate, however we forgot to take down... More
