Have stayed here many times when travelling through. It is our choice, the room is nothing to write home about (we stay in the end unit, ground floor) and have the breakfast. The staff has always been attentive to our needs but we do not expect much when you are almost home.

Arrived in Castlegar after a ten hour drive, tired and looking forward to a peaceful night - not to be. Other hotels fully booked and sent to this dump by Super 8 reception as a wonderful option, better than Super 8 quality. We were worried by the dirty lobby and smell of cigaret smoke from the receptionist but too tired... More

There wasn't much on offer in Castegar so thought we would try a smaller locally run spot. The inn was 40 years old and showed every year. Squeaking floors all night from the unit above kept us awake most of the night. Though the staff was very helpful and apologetic, and discounted the room, I would not recommend this hotel.... More

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
