Stayed 2 nights September 28, 29. Staff were friendly, room was clean and bed was comfortable. Nice and close to downtown restaurants and shops. The only issue I had was one morning (6:30 am) there was quite noisy machinery on the street outside my 3rd floor room. Not the hotel's fault, but the sound insulation was very poor, and it... More

I am happy you found the room clean and comfortable. Sorry to hear that there was a loud machinery on the street at 6:30am. Fortunately that doesn't usually happen with us being away from the highway so I hope you will visit us again. More

We were travelling from Vancouver to Dawson creek with my daughter, helping her to move house. We were travelling with a very well behaved dog and cat. We booked on line in the suite, saying that we had animals. When we arrived we were abruptly told that we certainly couldn't go in that room with animals! They moved the 3... More

Booked this hotel on Expedia as it was on sale through them. Very happy with the choice. We were placed on the 3rd floor. The rooms were tastefully decorated with vintage furniture pieces. The bed was amazingly comfortable. Spent very little time in the casino as that is not our thing, but the hotel is conveniently located near the paved... More

Tamara; Thank you for review. We do get a lot of compliments on how comfortable the beds are which is such a bonus when staying away from home. The city does have beautiful walking trails and the museum, which is only three blocks from us, also has a great display of artifacts and historical information. We will be happy to... More

Stayed here two nights in mid August to visit family. Booked thru Hotwire and got a great deal, only issue was that Hotwire did not state the type of beds. We ended up with a double and a twin, didn't think we would fit but the double was surprisingly very comfortable. Only drawback was that they only had a Sunday... More

We are happy you found the beds comfortable. A lot of guests do compliment us on how comfortable the beds are. It is unfortunate that you stayed one of the few times that we offer a breakfast buffet and didn't want it. The breakfast buffet is usually only offered on occasions like Father's Day, Mother's Day, New Years Day or... More

From the high level of attention I received at the very no-nonsense check-in, to the great "special" available in the adjacent restaurant, this is the spot to stay in when in Quesnel! Places to walk, a casino, and a terrific movie theatre close-by make this a great property. Good, quiet rooms-even the standard room was full of character, with a... More
