While originally passing through Smithers we were forced to stop due a severe snow storm further down the road. We quickly sought out accommodations & were happy to stay here. the room was very clean, quiet & comfortable. We spend the rest of the day in town, had a great meal & good nights sleep before continuing on the road... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in January. Room was large, clean and quiet. Was there for work and WiFi worked well. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Parking is easy and free. There is no breakfast to speak of and I would not call their continental breakfast a real breakfast. However, coffee and tea are available all day as is... More

The Sunshine Inn was easy to find, being just off Highway 16 in Smithers.The motel is fairly new, and the room we had was clean,comfortable and quite spacious, which had some nice views out of the window (depending on which direction you looked). The price was relatively inexpensive, staff were friendly, and breakfast was included in the room rate. The... More

The room was clean and comfortable. Very quiet. The furniture showed wear and tear and took away from the overall enjoyment of the room. The free continental breakfast left us going elsewhere for breakfast. There was no toaster, no waffles, fruit was a little off, no butter available, coffee just marginal.

Everything worked, internet ok, comfy beds, clean and I would stay again. Only complaint is the free breakfast has a very limited selection compared to most free hotel breakfasts e.g. Holiday Inn, Super 8. No waffle maker, or pancake maker, no scrambled eggs or ham or sausages. Just the basics, which is why it is refered to as "Continental breakfast".... More

The receptionist was very friendly along with other staff being very helpful. When I see white bedding I'm happy with the bed.I like white bedding with the duvet that the cover gets washed each time you stay ( I asked ) - very clean looking. The bathroom was beautiful, nice deep tub and granite counters surrounding the sink. We had... More

We have stayed at the Sunshine Inn at Smithers two times now and will again. The location is close to main street where there are a large variety of stores to shop in. The Hospital is a five minute drive away and should you need a ride to the Hospital or the Airport, the manager will kindly offer to provide... More

We had an excellent stay and the Sunshine Inn, so much so that we decided to stay for a second night. The room was clean, the beds really comfortable, and the manager, Sharon, was extremely nice and accommodating, as were the other employees. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who intends to stay in Smithers!
