Ideal for a one night stay - our room overlooked the harbour & was very quiet. The friendly helpful staff were the highlight of this visit - they went out of their way to offer local information - thank you ladies!

Stayed here one night before catching the ferry. After staying at Pioneer Inn we were nervous about what this place would be like. luckily the room was large and clean, with a comfortable bed. The furniture was decent and there was a microwave and fridge. We arrived late but it looked like a nice view over the water. Overall we... More

If you're not fussy, you'll be alright. The lack of AC, means the rooms get very hot. Large TV, might need plugging in upon arrival, you'll have to work that out on you're own. The wifi is free but virtually useless. Free parking is good. Great views of the Harbour, Comfy Clean beds, Nice complimentary toiletries, not too many sockets... More

The server was very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The food was average but reasonably priced. The view was very good. Appeared to be a local favourite and a good spot for a basic lunch in Port Hardy. Great to see breakfast items until 2pm.

This is a dated, motel style hotel. However we prefer this over the other, limited, choices . The rooms on 2nd/3rd floors have balcony, overlooking water with a decent view, which we like. Rooms are spacious and clean, the beds are comfy and they have fridges and microwaves.

The server was very sweet, but the food was not good. She recommended the Cream of Turkey soup, and it was plain with no flavour, and hardly any meat or veggies. His hamburger was ok, but my meal's "veggies" were mushy (and I do mean mushy) green beans and quartered mushrooms, which tasted canned. This is in the middle of... More
