The Billy Barker Casino and Hotel was a very nice place to stay while in Quesnel. The exterior is cute and touristy. The rooms are very small and our room only had two 2/3 sized beds, but they are clean. It was decorated very cute, with antique furniture and quilts on the beds. I was very disappointed there wasn't a... More

Thank you for taking time to write a review. We agree that the standard rooms are on the small side but we do have luxury suites which are much more spacious and some with microwaves. I hope you stay with us again as I would recommend a suite if you require more space. More

Stayed for 3 nights and found the staff to be very nice. The room was small for the 3 of us but the beds were comfortable and the room was clean.

Thank you for taking time to review your stay. For 3 people I would definitely recommend a suite. The hotel, although renovated, does have smaller rooms but we have made some spacious luxury suites that are reasonably priced. It is to bad that you had to eat elsewhere but as stated the restaurant doesn't have menu service while the buffet... More

Stayed in a third floor room (320?) - overall very nice, if on the smaller side. The bathroom was modern and clean, bed was comfortable, large flat screen TV. I believe the hotel is an older building so the room was smaller than those of newer corporate hotels, but appeared to be recently renovated. Decor was keeping in theme but... More

Our room was just as advertised - small, traditional, character but with a nice bathroom and tv/coffe service. Clean and comfortable and fairly quiet. The restaurant did not appeal to me but this hotel is walking distance to many downtown restaurants. The outside decor of the hotel by day and especially by night was the reason I booked this hotel... More

Room was nice. Small but cozy. The bed was comfortable. The casino is quite small but does have table games. Great place to stay! Room was only $77 which is a good deal. Would recommend for business or personal travelers.

Went there twice this month with different friends and we all liked the rooms. They are small and would not want to be there for a long stay, but they are individually decorated. "Short wing" is being redecorated nicely but the "long wing" still has its charm. Beware that if you have a balcony at you window, others have access... More

Thank you for staying with us.
