Over the past 4 seasons we have rented a variety of rooms, from singles to kitchenettes. The quality of this hotel has greatly increased in the past 2 years, and this year was a fantastic stay. We had a full crew with us and rented a couple kitchenettes all summer (sorry if we bumped you out!). We have nothing but... More

Overall, this was a surprisingly good experience. At check in, we were greeted with fresh baked cookies and dog cookies for our large dog. There was a kitchen available for guests to use, which is convenient in a town that shuts down by 8pm or earlier. There was also a barbecue and common area with DVDs and book available. The... More

We booked at Booking.com and almost immediately received an email from Dede informing us that there are no eating facilities in Dease Lake after 3:30 when the deli closes; just a grocery store until 8. She noted a kitchenette and grill were available to us however. Based on her heads up, we picked up sandwiches the next morning to take... More

This motel was right near gas and food about halfway down the Stewart-Cassiar Highway. The room was large and clean with plenty of room for two and the dogs. Nice common area with ice and microwave. Fridge in room and coffee maker too. Plenty of parking.

Considering where this hotel is located, there are few choices. Clean, adequate rooms, friendly staff. They have bbq grill on site for use as there are no restaurants...only 1 take out grill and a grocery store. But it has all you need, and does the job.

Spent a very enjoyable night on our way down the Cassiar Hwy. Bearing in mind this is a small community in a remote place, we were very comfortable. Room was clean, not fancy, and had what we needed, including extra outlets to charge our devices. Everything we needed we found, keeping true to the Alaska sourdough advice to the newcomer... More

This place is nothing special, however it is clean, quiet and their service is excellent. There are no restaurants to speak of in Dease Lake, so the hotel has opened one of their kitchenette suites (full kitchen) for the people staying there. There is a grocery store across the street or bring your own food and you can make what... More

Dease Lake is small, very small, with a supermarket/gas station, The Shack (take away food) and the Northway Inn. The lady who runs it goes out of her way to assist guests and is to be highly commended.
