We stayed at the Totem overnight in mid Sept 2012 on a trip to Haida Gwaii. The room was quite large and very well appointed although, like others have mentioned, somewhat dated. The bed seemed kinda bouncy at first but we had a lovely sleep on it. We got in late off the Port Hardy ferry i.e. 11 PM and the Totem made sure there was somebody there to check us in. The ferry to Haida Gwaii wasn't until 10 PM the following night but the Totem offered us a late check-out that helped quite a bit.
The motel has a coin operated laundry on site (you buy soap, etc at the front desk).
All in all: a nice clean motel, friendly people, big room, WiFi that worked, a full kitchen, laundry facilities, GREAT price and right off Highway 16 (but still quiet!) and close to the ferry terminal....what more could you ask?
All the best,
