Check in and checkout were smooth, staff are friendly and worked to accommodate our requests. Yes, the place is dated, floors squeak, and carpet needs changing...however rooms were fine. Some minor updates are evident. Breakfast included. Our family thought it was an ok place to stay, convenient to the highway, with various shops (including Starbucks) close by. You can also... More

Stopped overnight with my two young grandsons during a busy holiday weekend. Conveniently located close to the main highway. A bit dated, but the rooms were large and very clean. Check-in was friendly and efficient. The rate was reasonable. The parking is free and convenient. We enjoyed a quiet restful sleep. An enjoyable feature is that although the Fireside does... More

We found everything about this little Inn a pleasant surprise and very affordable. Breakfast was great. Rooms were very clean and had a little kitchenette. All the amenities we needed were close by. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely stay again when in the area.

Check-in and check-out was friendly and efficient. The room was quite spacious with the usual coffee machine but it also had a fully equipped kitchenette: double sink, two burner countertop stove, bar size fridge, microwave and toaster. Our room was on the second floor, located at the rear of the hotel, so there was no traffic noise and had a... More

We stayed here two nights on a motorcycle trip thru BC and used this hotel as base. We had a great time, used 2 rooms for 2 couples next to each other. Our rooms had a frig, 2 burner stove top, microwave, and sink. The staff was very very friendly and helped with cabs, directions, etc. We took a cab... More

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...
