“Basic and clean”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

I spent Tuesday and Wednesday nights at the NMI, so pretty quiet. The reception staff were friendly. The hotel is a little worn, so maybe because of that I was impressed by how clean my room was. It's a little on the small side. It had a small fridge along with the other standards. The bathroom was also quite clean although the shower facet was in need of updating. The NMI has a friendly pub and a liquor store. Its located away from Terrace but nothing is too far if you have a vehicle -- 10 minute ride to the centre of town.

As we were flying into Terrace late and leaving early we chose a "value" hotel rather than a higher priced chain hotel. We were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is immaculate with a nice mix of cozy somewhat dated touches and some newer updates. The room was quiet and the restaurant was convenient, with delicious food at a good price. We were impressed enough to rebook a few nights later

Had to spend 3 extra days in Terrace because of a helicopter scheduling problem. I chose this place because of their free airport shuttle, and the restaurant, bar and liquor store in the same building.

The room was large and clean and the staff friendly, but that's about it. There was a live band one night at the bar, and fortunately could not hear it in the room. But traffic noise was loud all day and night, along with dust, noise and fumes from a dozen diesel big rigs parked outside. The kitchen exhaust blower right outside the window provided a loud screeching wakeup call every morning at 5 AM. So far out of town, there's not much to do on foot.

The restaurant was expensive, even for Terrace, and the food and drinks there mediocre. The folks who staff the liquor store are friendly and funny, so that eased to pain of my extra days there I guess.

Best, there's a small neighborhood market right next door. Awesome meat and produce; once I discovered this, no more restaurant! Did my cooking right in the room microwave, and left the housekeeping staff a nice tip for cleanup. One of these days I'll be writing a "healthy cooking in cheap motels" book......

Next time I'm forced to stay in Terrace, I'll be looking for better options. It wasn't bad, but not great either. Kinda like Terrace in general.....ugh. Beautiful river, shabby town. It's all aboot the fishing there, eh?

Room Tip: Good luck. Ya pays your money, ya takes your chances. And be sure to inquire about the timing of &q...

We had a room on the second floor. It was large, clean and comfortable. It was quiet as we did not hear any hallway noise or noise from adjoining rooms (running water, etc.). There was a mini fridge and microwave. The A/C worked well. The hotel is a bit out of town but was not an issue. We would definitely recommend and stay again.

Based on reviews, I decided I would call the hotel directly. I called with the intention to reserve a room. Front desk customer service was not very easy to talk to. I was asking to get a room away from the "Pub" area. The response was vague..."I can't guarantee anything with noise". I just wanted to get a room away from the pub area! Other response was..."well all our rooms are grouped together". It's a hotel, of course their grouped together! As I was finishing up, he says "OK, will that be all?". It didn't seem like there was any intention to confirm reservation of a room. I decided not to reserve the room.

Room Tip: Be aware that the town is becoming busier and mining infrastructure construction is underway.

The room was clean. There were some minor service issues (wobbly toilet), but all was clean. The staff were generally accommodating, but again, some minor service issues. Loads of parking and the restaurant staff were great. There were lots of guests staying there, but was not crowded or noisy. OK, all things considered.
