First or all, I'm a pretty easy going traveller and I don't need to stay in fancy hotels or high prices rooms to give good reviews and have enjoyable stays. I booked a room here pretty much based off of what I had read on here from other peoples experiences. As I do with 90% of the rooms I ever... More

Our family stayed at Wells Gray Inn before and after a week-long trek in Wells Gray Park. The staff at the front desk, as well as the restaurant staff, were all friendly and welcoming. The room was very clean and comfortable, with air conditioning that worked great, a large tv and a nice outdoor sitting area. It's right across the... More

If you want decent wifi DON'T go here. It's a complete joke!!! Sometimes it works for just a couple of minutes, then it drops again to remain dead for hours. It simply doesn't work. When you call the front desk they just unplug and plug back in wifi which doesn't change a single bit. Complete crap...

This hotel was clean and in a good location. It was right on the hwy, yet across the street from the lake. It does tend to be a bit noisy as it has a pub on premise. It also had a wedding at the hotel on one of the nights we were there, which lead to a noisy night. All... More

We recently stayed at this motel with a large group who were attending Hockey Provincials. The staff at the hotel were exceptionally accommodating both with arranging meals, large rooms to eat them in and hotel rooms. Staying at this hotel made our experience just that much better

Definitely a no-frills accommodation, Wells Gray Inn is clean. As with all older inns there's a slight musty smell but not bad. A bit rough around the edges, wallpaper with lifted edges, paint patches showing, it was VERY quiet the night we stayed. For a night on the road, an acceptable option. And inexpensive too.

We stayed at the Wells Gray Inn for three nights. We were impressed with the level of service from every employee we interacted with treated us nicely and with a smile. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. The AC unit was the quietest that I have ever experienced. Will definitely stay here again if the opportunity presents... More
