Needs some severe updating. Rented two rooms, one did not have a bathroom. How is this possible? They were adjoining rooms and meant to be the "family room" that could sleep 8. So one bathroom, 8 people. Beds were uncomfortable and wanted to sleep fully clothed. Probably original carpeting. There is a sign in the room saying no hair dying... More

We stayed here two nights and I would definitely recommend it. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean. The place was quiet. I talked with the staff and they are working hard to make Providence Place into a nice hotel and I believe they are succeeding well. The cost for a room was a great value.... More

Don't expect the Hilton here. The property and grounds are run down and very much in need of some simple upgrades. A bucket catching a leak from the ceiling sat in the hallway outside our door for 3 days without attention from maintenance. Rooms are modest but clean enough and thoughtfully furnished with coffee maker, mini fridge and microwave. Would... More

Because of the BC Ferries, it's sometimes difficult to find a good hotel or B&B available in Port Hardy. That was our situation. Only Providence Place seemed to have rooms available. It is very plain with limited facilities. Wi-fi was flaky and slow, no carpets, wooden floor was dirty, no breakfast or coffee, no pictures etc. Wouldn't stay there again.... More

When we pulled up there was unseemly folks sitting around outside, even some ppl drinking in the bushes across the road, there was cigarettes butts outside, and the whole place... More

Stayed for one night after travel by Ferry from Prince Rupert. Friendly reception at late arrival. Room was clean, plain but everything needed for good nights rest. One complaint was no hairdryer plugin in bathroom and no mirror in main bedroom to do hair.

If you can avoid this experience, do. We had a 0600 ferry, the next morning and I didn't want to ride the motorcycle from Courtenay at 0400, so spent the night here. I didn't expect much, based on reviews, but I wasn't prepared for how utterly dingy and dirty the place was. Reminded me of the worst barracks I visited... More

One of the lesser expensive, older, and plainer hotels in town - but very clean with a very helpful and friendly staff. Good value for the money and very convenient to restaurants and the waterfront. Many other ferry riders overnights here - including motorcyclists like us.

The hotel/motel is old, but the room was good enough for one night if you don't expect too much. However, it was quite expensive compared with other motels like this during our trip through the U.S. and Canada. And the free WiFi only worked in the hallway, in our room the WiFi was bad or gone.
