If you've read any of my other reviews, you know I favor smaller motels with the doors to the parking lot for ease of unloading our bikes, but also just a smaller venue and cost. The Fireweed Motel had good reviews here and lived up to it's reviews. We arrived around 5 pm w/o a reservation and the parking lot... More

Stayed here Nov 18th with a friend of mine. 80 bucks for double occupancy. Room smelled clean upon arrival. Friendly staff. Wifi included. I work at a motel and had no problems with this one. Can't do better at this price.

Smithers is a bit of a ghost town in the summer, but we have somehow timed the Centennial party and many of the hotels were booked. the Fireweed is reasonably priced in a central location. Clean and adequate.

Good value for what you get. Stayed there a few times. The rooms were clean, good staff (although housekeeping smoked & it followed them into the room). Area seemed quiet although some yahoo was driving his piece of crap car all night keeping us awake - not hotel related. WiFi is terrible, home quality not suitable for business. Get a... More

This motel was found to be clean, with all basic amenities. For the price it's very reasonable. We stayed in a room with a kitchen suite which contained all kitchen necessities ( pots, pans, dishes, cutlery and even a toaster) fridge and microwave in room. Bed was comfortable. Tv was nice. Heat worked well. Floors very clean. The rooms aren't... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, based on the recommendation of a friend. $80 for a double room, and no extra fee for wifi. Room was very clean, and had been redecorated recently with good carpet and nice bedlinen. Small fridge/microwave/coffee machine, all in good condition. The beds were very comfortable. Small bathroom, but adequate, and perfectly clean. One nice touch... More

We stayed here one night on our move from Alaska back to the Lower 48. Super clean room, comfortable bed, flat screen tv, coffee and a refrigerator in the room, and a good wifi connection all at a VERY readonable rate!! Would definitely stay here again!!

The motel room was lovely, clean and fresh. The dishes were not cleaned well tho. There was construction going on and it was horribly noisy. The water was shut off for plumbing work and i was not notified. There was no water for half a day that i was there!!! i couldnt use the toilet!!!

Good motel, quiet (not on the main road), spacious room with mini-fridge, comfortable beds, good WiFi connection, reasonable price. Their low ranking within the village is because there are few reviews until now, but note that they are all positive. Good choice!
