Hotel Selection in Desirable Area

I have come up with a choice between two places to stay in Prince George, Days Inn or Travelodge. I have a concern based upon various reviews of some areas in Prince George being undesirable and possibly unsafe. Of the two, which "hotel" is located in a more desirable area? Also do you have any better hotel recommendation? Thank you.

Both are downtown, so you will be subject to drunks. Worst place to stay is the Ramada, which is across from the PG Hotel and best of the bunch downtown would be the Coast Inn. Frankly, I am checking out the Treasure Cove Hotel and Casino, about a 5 min drive from downtown, which gets you away from all the riff-raff downtown.

Thanks for the fast response. I was aware of the area and problems where the Ramada is located. I thought possible that since the Travelodge and Days Inn are several brom the Ramada, the area may be better. I am traveling by train from Prince Rupert to Jasper with an overnight in Prince George and wanted to be close to the train station and restaurants. Regarding the Treasure Cove, I am not sure you are aware of the reviews in the "Forum"? Take a look they are not too good.

Ron: If that is so, then I would recommend the Coast. I will try the Cove and let you know. For food, try Ric's Grille, Cimo or Tandoori House, all downtown. All in all it is relatively safe, but like anywhere else, you need to keep your wits about you. Have a great trip.
