We have had trouble getting a room with a double/queen + 2×singles, as the standard room configuration seems to be 2 doubles/queens, and 2 rooms is twice the price and your children have to be of an age. So pretty pleased with this imaginatively configured spacious family room. Cooked to order eggs in the included breakfast. You can sit in... More

Upon arrival, there was plenty of parking. The Inn is located across the street from a Boston Pizza, a McDonald's (which does close, btw, and is not 24 hours), a gas station & Safeway. There were other things around, but we didn't notice them until the morning. Check in was easy -- and Lisa was super friendly & helpful. We... More

We ski in Canada every winter and start and end each excursion into the backcountry with hotel stays in our staging town. This winter we had the pleasure of staging out of Smithers and chose the Stork Nest Inn. We were not disappointed. In fact, it was an awesome accommodation for the price. Very clean, quite comfortable beds, everything in... More

i arrived on Saturday evening. The motel is centrally located with several restaurants within ten minutes walking. The next morning the aroma of the bacon, ham and sausages wafted down the hallway. There were several other people eating breakfast. Two hours later after great conversation with Brian, one of the owners and others we parted for the day. The next... More

This is a basic hotel with small, clean, adequately furnished rooms. It's a very short walk to the main shopping area of Smithers. Many of the visitors are workers in transit to the mines and other camps so there can be a lot of movement around dawn. They're Canadians, though, so it's obvious they try to keep quiet as a...

Comfortable. Owner is engaged and making your eggs for you. Feels like home. Not much more one can add other than if you want a comfortable room and place to stay in Smithers while connecting with locals you could do much worse

We arrived late after a long trip, and were greeted by the friendly staff. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Even though it was pretty busy for a Friday night, the hotel was quiet and we had a great sleep. Breakfast was a highlight... Eggs made to order and all you could eat sausages, ham, hash browns, pancakes,... More

We like the Stork Nest Inn. The inn is not far from downtown main street. The check in was very and the morning breakfast is always a joy plus the added conversation with the owner who is helpful with his advices.

Comfortable, clean room; hot shower and great breakfast. No coffee maker in the room but drinks could be made in the breakfast room. Friendly helpful staff. No laundry facilities but we were able to use those in the motel next door. Bit of a walk to local restaurants for dinner but that's helpful for the digestion anyway.
