“horrible service, however a decent place to stay”
Reviewed 21 September 2008

We were only in town for a few nights and decided to stay at the Economy Inn. We were overall satisfied with the stay; It was clean, quiet, comfortable and cheap. However, upon arriving, we were mortified by the creepy old lady at the front desk standing behind a barred (yes, barred!!) counter. She was really unfriendly, and gave off a really bad aura. Thank god we didnt have to see her more than once!!!

  • Liked — it was clean, cozy and cheap
  • Disliked — the creepy lady at the front desk,yik!

Economy in name, economy in price. Unlike the previous reviewer, I appreciated this Inn for what it offers - inexpensive accommodations close to downtown - contrary to the the previous reviewers lament about distance from downtown. Three blocks! My gosh - such a distance. The front desk staff for my visit was pleasant, the room was standard ok and clean. Free wireless high speed internet - all at less than half the price of other downtown hotels/motels. Good value choice.

  • Liked — acceptable quality and economic price

Stayed at Economy Inn June last year for 1 night on a stopover off the train from Jasper to Prince Rupert. Economy by name, economy by nature! First of all receptionist (very scary!) had mixed up booking and was quite rude about it. Told her I had emailed confirmation and she denied it, but I had a copy with me and showed her (which still didn't get an apology). This Motel was well out of the main town (in fact we didn't even see the main town) If it wasn't for the Dairy Queen opposite, we would have been very hungry! Room was fairly small and very basic. Did have air conditioning, but it was very basic, basic motel, and as I went downstairs to go outside for cigarette, I was made to feel like a naughty school child (and I'm in my 50's!). I'm sure you can do better than this in Prince George.

  • Liked — nothing really, bathroom was not too bad
  • Disliked — location, room, shabbiness
  • Stayed June 2006, travelled as a couple
