Cheaper than The View ($200/night) and the Stuart Lake Cabins were all sold out. We paid $118 per night for 3 people. Overall our... More

Manager or owner whichever trying to charge for little things even a towel for $5, have seen this before when in small town for work trying to capitalize on workers dime. Greed is the downfall of all. If I had a choice I would not stay here.

On a recent trip I stayed here. The room was clean. The owner friendly. Most of the rooms at present are rented out on a weekly basis. When I called he made it very clear I would have to be out first thing on Monday morning. This was not a problem as I was heading further north. Owner much more... More

I had to stay here because it was the only room available in town. I wish I would have just slept in my truck. This hotel is very dirty and filthy. The entry to the office should turn anyone away. It was full of trash and the door so dirty you didn't want to touch it. I should have turned... More

We enjoyed our stay at the New Caledonia Motel. Our room was spacious and had everything required. The kitchenette was great! The weather was a little warm, so the new air conditioner was a welcome sight.

Owners were very kind. They seems like recently have switched to a new hardwood floor, new air conditioners and new TVs. Our room was very spacious, confortable and clean. Their kichenette have pretty much all the necessary equipments that you need to cook. It was good to stay when we visited Fort St. James.

Stayed here for work when it was HOT out. New air conditioners were a good addition but loud and could barely keep up. A light blanket would have been a good option. Kitchenette was adequate and necessary. Owners were great. Noise from highway could be heard as the logging trucks rolling by would start in the wee hours.
