Reviewed June 28, 2012

I was impressed initially by the signs advertising the motel on my way into Hazleton while traveling southbound on highway 37. When I arrived I met the owner who gave freely of his time to tell me of local historic sites as well as interesting and quality places to eat. The room was spotless with up to date amenities representing real value at a very competitive price. While this little gem might seem a little unassuming at first glance from the street I heartily recommend it to anyone passing through the area. You may be tempted to stay a little longer!
Be careful, while the motel is on the main street of a small town keep a look out, I almost missed it and I was looking for it.

We were driving through Canada to Alaska, and had spent the last 3 nights sleeping in our car. We were READY for a bed and a hot shower, and we got both at the Bulkley Valley Motel. We stopped at the Bulkley after looking at a more pricey room at a different motel that was horrendous. Our room at the Bulkley was perfect! The bed was super comfortable, the room was clean, the heater in the room worked great and kept us nice and toasty. Best of all, the price was unbeatable. It was LESS expensive than the yucky place we looked at first! The hotel owners/managers were very friendly and helpful and made our stay enjoyable. If you are traveling through the Hazeltons, the Bulkley Valley Motel is the best stop you could make!

My wife, daughter, and I stayed at the Bulkley Valley Motel on the 15th September 2011, whilst on a driving holiday from Vancouver to Whitehorse on the Stewart Cassiar Highway. We were visitors from England and this was just our second overnight stop on the trip. We were VERY impressed with the motel. The room was spotless, the bathroom was immaculate, and the manager very welcoming. We arrived very late, and he was there to greet us and gave us some invaluable advice regarding our onward journey. The following morning, he looked for us to give us a printout of the roadworks that we would need to pass, and told us about a number of sights not to miss - including the spectacular Salmon glacier near Hyder, which we would never have seen otherwise. He said that it wasn't to be missed - he was right. This motel is a few dollars more than others in New Hazelton, but I can't recommend it enough. Brilliant. We will be back.

Great to hear you made it to Salmon Glacier! We enjoyed having you stay with us and are thrilled that you enjoyed it so much. Don't let too many years pass before trekking through northern BC again. Cheers!

Do NOT be deceived by the somewhat tacky exterior, or the location; inside, the rooms are excellent, definitely up to par. Having stayed in some chain hotels recently, this motel stands out as cared for and modernized. Great value.

It is SO true - the exterior is still in the category of "tacky" which we hope to address in coming years - but where we have invested is in the rooms. Thanks for seeing past our "first impression" and giving us a go. The solid wood furniture and new carpets, plus the completely rebuilt bathrooms seem to be getting positive attention.

A lovely place. From the outside, we thought it looked the nicest of all the places. My wife noted it was the highest priced of the motels. Since they were not that far apart and it is small, I thought the slightly higher price indicated quality.

The manager was very friendly and helpful in suggesting a place to eat. It turns out that she has been there just a month.

The room was very clean and the internet connection was very good.

Definitely the place to stay in New Hazelton.
