Staying with family in the summer this was where we spent the night before our 6AM flight over to Vancouver. Nothing to fault really - typical motel style, not ideal for a longer stay but perfect for what we needed. Leaving early wasn't a problem we just dropped our keys in a box and left. Fine!

A proper motel with little to offer apart from a bed if you're using this as a quick stopover. We had travelled down the inside passage and needed an overnight stay before heading down Vancouver Island to Victoria. The receptionist was very pleasant and they have a small liquor shop where you can buy drinks and snacks if required. The... More

our one night stay (after arriving at port hardy late from the prince rupert ferry) was very comfortable. the rooms were simple but very clean and the location offered a very quiet and restful night of sleep. the adjoining restaurant offered a decent breakfast and was a great way to start our morning.

We stayed one night. The rooms where very basic but clean and comfortable. The receptionist was very helpful and booked us taxi to the ferry the next morning. When the taxi didn't arrive we called the person in charge (at 5:30 AM) and she made phone calls and managed to find a taxi that would take us to the ferry.

We arrived at the hotel at 11.30pm after a long day on the ferry from Prince Rupert. They were lots of other travelers booking in. The receptionist was very friendly and incredibly patient as some of the others were in large groups. Our room was very clean, the beds very comfortable, the fridge was new, the coffee tasted of coffee,... More

One of the most basic motels I have ever stayed in in North America- Stuffy corridors with a strange smell- dated, ugly décor, concrete block walls, flimsy windows (?secure). Cleanliness questionable. No coffee in room. Arrived late at night as part of transfer off ferry from Prince Rupert. Strangely, the motel boasts a large liquor store next to reception. This... More

We were booked at this motel as there were no vacancies in the preferred motels in town. As many have said, it is basic. Front desk staff were friendly enough but no enthusiasm. No fridge or kettle, although when I asked a kettle was found. The room furnishings were old and looked tired but all was clean. We had a... More

Hello Liane F, I am sorry that your stay with us was not great. I would like to apologize for the lack of coffee and fridge. For a brief period this last year we removed coffee in the rooms to gauge what the impact would be. Many Guests like yourself found this an inconvenience and so we have put back... More

Like some reviewers, I booked this with a bit of trepidation. I originally called another hotel, closer into town, but it was much more expensive, so opted for this hotel. As we had our own vehicle, its location out near the airport wasn't an issue for us. Again, we arrived off the ferry from Prince Rupert at 10.30pm and didn't... More

Clearly, the Airport Inn did not have the best reputation -- certainly not on TripAdvisor -- until a somewhat positive review from earlier this year. Based on that review, and on an exchange of e-mails I had with one of the owners, I decided to give it a try for the final night of my two-week trip that was primarily... More
