Staff were very helpful and friendly, rooms were clean and quiet, and cost was very affordable. I was caught unable to find a room at my usual hotels and gave this place a try, and I was very satisfied with it! Lots of parking, clean and comfortable, has all the amenities, nice friendly staff, and a very decent place to stay for the price.

Room Tip: The rooms on the back side of the motel are very quiet and have lots of parking.

This place is newly renovated and very clean. They have laundry facilities, snacks and a restaurant. The rooms are great - I've had a single with a kitchenette - it was convenient, modern and CLEAN! I've stayed in a double room as well and they are great too. The walls are thick so you can't really hear your neighbours which is awesome! The beds are comfortable. The air conditioner is not noisy at all! My friend and I really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend!

The overall experience at Carmel was great, room was immaculately clean, service from the staff was exceptional. The $300 deposit was not worthy of the room however, the actual price of the room itself wasnt too bad. I would not stay here again only for the fact that the bed was so hard I may as well have slept outside on the sidewalk.

I stayed at Carmel on Dec 19th 2012. The room, although small with 1 Queen bed, was very very clean, had a little stove, fridge and microwave and was very comfortable. My neighbours unfortunately liked to party and the front desk responded to my 2:00 am call quickly and tried several times to reduce the noise. I didn't mention anything to the front desk upon departure, but upon reviewing my visa, the motel had credited back the room cost - full amount. When I called the motel to find out why there was a credit, they knew exactly what had occured and apologized several times for the noise.

I will definately go back. Good value, nice rooms and great people operating this motel.

I spent 4 nights at the Carmel this past week and was very happy! This was my first visit to Prince George and on the drive to the hotel I was getting a little concerned. Luckily all my concerns vanished when I checked in. The front desk staff was consistently helpful, even providing plastic cutlery so I could have breakfast in my room. My room was very clean, the queen sized bed was comfy and I loved having the little kitchenette.

Although a travelling companion in a neighbouring room found the hotel had thin walls and it was noisy, I personally thought it was rather quiet for being right off the highway. Check in and out was quick and easy as well.

The nearby Carmel restaurant was a bust though, overpriced and the food was pretty bad. Best off to walk a bit further down the road to Than Vu and get some tasty Vietnamese food. Also it was a $8 cab ride to get to a complex with Superstore/Tim Hortons/Liquor Store/Steakhouse so that didn't break the bank.

Should I ever have reason to return to Prince George, I think the Carmel will be top of my list for places to stay.

When I reserved our room I made a point of REPEATING the reservation to the person on the phone to make sure she got the information correct......as a habit I do this with every reservation that I make over the phone. When we checked in on the evening of our reservation we were NOT given the type of room that I requested, even though I REPEATED the info when making the reservation. The young man at the desk was friendly, and there was a line up behind me so I didn't make an issue of it as we were exhausted from travelling. So we ended up with a TINY room with two double beds that looks like it had some reno's done but the smell of cleaning solution was overpowering. Again, travelling with kids, I was to tired to complain and I did not want to take it out on the friendly young man working the desk. The air conditioning was VERY loud and did not put out much cold air, they should be replaced. I would probably not stay again.
