This is a tired, old, run down motel, used predominately by people for one night to use the ferry, or by fishermen. Its saving grace is the manageress, who is extremely friendly and helpful, and the fact that the room is clean. Otherwise, the decor is extremely shabby and dated, and is in need of a complete re-vamp, if not demolition and re-build. Be warned: the restaurant adjacent is closed and derelict, but if you don't have a car, the manageress offered to order us takeout pizza. If you do have a car, find a decent restaurant in Port Hardy (impossible), or go to Overwaitea supermarket and get provisions. The rooms do have a working oven and fridge. Having said all this, it's ok for a one night stand for the ferry leaving at 5.20 the next morning, but you'll be disappointed given the cost. We liked the rusty tin outside the room door for your cigarette butts and the grungy RV camper site behind the rooms (nawt!).
