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!

Stayed at the Sunshine Inn again. The rooms are large, the beds comfortable. The hotel is in walking distance of anywhere you would want to go in downtown Smithers. Sharon who is on the front desk was very helpful. Gave us tips on the best restaurants. She knows Smithers and its history and is great to talk to. Thanks again... More

A friend and I were traveling from Seattle to Anchorage in three days. We found this hotel at the end of day one (800 miles). We were expecting to have to haggle down a very high price, but were pleasantly surprised to find the room cost $119 (plus tax). I know some of you are thinking that is high, but... More

Stayed one night at the Sunshine Inn, Smithers BC. Easy to find off the highway, basic rooms but well designed to maximize space. Reasonably clean and quiet room. Helpful desk staff. For the money it is very good value. No restaurant but a light breakfast was supplied as part of our room rate

CLEAN, FRIENDLY. Did I mention CLEAN? Nice appointed spacious rooms. Remember you are in British Columbia on the edge of no where. This place was friendly, clean and did I mention clean? It was quiet, clean. Nice block out shades as it doesn't ever get dark here at night this time of year (JUNE). Front desk was wonderful. The ONLY... More

I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful, particularly given that I was entirely unfamiliar with Smithers. They advised me on places to eat, which turned out to be excellent as well. I found the room to be clean and exactly as advertised, and the A/C was powerful enough to keep the room at the temperature I prefer.... More

I think this hotel is designed for people passing through or business travellers as there were none of the amenities that a family might look for on a vacation. But as someone who travels for work, I found this to be a clean, comfortable place to get a really good night sleep. The room size is good, it was quiet,... More

When I travel on business this site has proven to be most welcoming - recently I brough my teenage daughter and she made a point of saying how much nicer the atmosphere was here then where we stayed in Prince George. Excellent proximity to shopping.

I travel the Yellowhead regularly for work, and have been very pleased to discover the Sunshine Inns. I needed to find alternatives to lodging in Prince George. Sunshine Inns are very clean, convenient, and quiet.
