Reading the negative reviews we were a bit apprehensive so our expectations were not high. This is an old hotel, our room was small but perfectly clean. All of the staff we encountered were pleasant and helpful. We had both breakfast and dinner at the hotel and both were very good. We thought the hotel had character and folks have... More

We stayed here while we attended the Artswells festival. Our room was the smallest in the hotel but it was in the middle and in the front so we had a view. I really can't comment on the noise level as it was a music festival and it goes on pretty much all night but we were so tired from... More

The rooms in this hotel are as close to original as you are likely to find. Small and cozy - feels like you are somewhat back in time. Our room at the back of the hotel was a little noisy (not sure what was going on outside) but our friends' room at the front was very nice and they had... More

We recently checked into the Wells Hotel and checked out a half hour later. The hotel is not as described on line. Our room was very small with a old fashion sink at the foot of the bed. Bathroom was very small..... Reminded me of an old boarding house. There was no closet or dresser for your clothes and no... More

On the plus side, the hotel staff was reasonably helpful, and the hotel is only a handful of minutes from barkerville. The Barkerville website says "recently renovated" which is a joke. The only thing that is maybe updated is the lobby. In functionality it's still stuck in the thirties and lacks a lot of standard amenities, like TVs or phones... More

Our stay was very stressful! The good things: the bed was comfortable, some of the staff were pleasant and tried to be helpful, supplied toiletries were of good quality, and the room was clean. The not so good things: Total disorganization of their booking system (which involves a binder, a ledger book, staff not communicating with each other and apparently... More

the thing with this place is that the hotel itself is from 1933. the rooms arent going to be like the radisson in downtown calgary. the room itself was small, but clean, the bed was comfortable and the place was quiet. wifi worked fine and the pub downstairs is great.

However: we experienced--1) no record of our reservation on check in and... More
