The building is dated but clean and the attached beverage store is a bonus. The restaurant is expensive but everything here is when everything needs to be shipped in from far away. This is a central location to all outdoor excursions in port McNeil.

Let's be honest...Port McNeil is not near the top of my bucket list of places I intend to visit before leaving this world - especially not in dreary, cold December...

Never having travelled north of Campbell River, I was keen to see what the northern part of Vancouver Island had to offer when my son's hockey team booked an over night stay at the Haida Way Motor Inn in Port McNeil.

In fairness - it's a motor inn - and the price ($77/night) was certainly right. In fact it has pretty much everything one would need - albeit a bit basic. Decent sized lobby with a computer for guest use, fresh coffee (free) available in the mornings, liquor store attached and a pub/restaurant which made things very convenient when feeding our 16 young hockey players and a nice place for parents to gather for lunch or an evening beverage.

Full compliments to the Management/Kitchen for arranging a $15/person pasta buffet for the team...good options and we all left full and satisfied.

Rooms were clean but nothing fancy, each one having a fridge, microwave, coffee maker and a tidy little bathroom. The concrete brick walls took a bit of getting used to but the bottom level hallway made for a perfect mini-sticks extravaganza! Unfortunately the heater wasn't working in our room but the Front Desk staff provided us a band new space heater which did the job.

Given other options...(nice looking "resort" across the street with a "no-kids" pool policy) I'd book an overnight stay for a sports team...cheap, cheerful enough and decent amenities - also a short walk to the local grocery store, the ice rink and a couple of funky coffee shops.

Room Tip: Lower levels were cinder-block - not sure if booking higher floors would avoid it feeling a little "cell-like".

Stayed for one night. We had a room on the bottom floor which was dated but reasonably clean. The cinder block walls gave it an institutional feel. The room was quiet except there was noise from pipes/plumbing that started around 4am.

There is a pub and two restaurants at the hotel. The one restaurant is open only in the evening. My son ate there and said the food was okay. I ate at the pub... had a chicken club wrap and fries which were very good.

The second restaurant was open for a self serve breakfast. Cereal, toast, coffee, juice, muffins, pre-made egg sandwiches that could be microwaved. Do not eat there. It was horrible. Coffee was like warm. Egg sandwiches were not good. Toaster takes 5 minutes. It so bad it was funny.... at least until I had to pay $15 for it. We went to Subway down the hill afterwards for better food for less money.

There is a beer and wine store attached to the hotel.

If you need a low cost basic place to stay, this works. For the price, this hotel is fine. And, I never imagined time travel would be so affordable.

I've stayed here a lot. 3rd Floor rooms are quieter. No complaints on the rooms, small town, older rooms. The breakfast is typical complimentary hot breakfast, average quality. You can order off the menu for breakfast if you like, it is an option. There is a pub and restaurant located in the same building at the hotel. The food comes from the same kitchen area but don't be fooled by this. Pub food is good grub but the restaurant is excellent. I recommend the Veal Cutlets. There is also a small beer and wine shop in this place. Very convenient. Be careful when you book a room on the backside. The backside faces the pub which has loud music some nights. But the backside is where you want to be when there's no music because the front side faces the main road.

Room Tip: 3rd floor in the back is best on nights when there's no band playing downstairs at the pub.

Once again we were delighted with the food, service, and price of this restaurant. We made our annual trip to celebrate a birthday with a family member. The owner was most gracious in allowing us to eat after the restaurant was closed for the afternoon break.

It is always pleasant to return to a restaurant and receive the same excellent service year after year. Thank you for your kindly receiving us during your busy day..
