“Very good for Port Hardy”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

We have been staying here for year while travelling and on business. The place is very good because of the location, all rooms face the ocean and the 2nd and 3rd floors have a balcony. When the tide is high you are over the water. A nice place to lay in bed and take in the view of the ocean. But there are a few things that seem to have gone down hill, the fridges are getting old, every time they come on the make noise and wake us up. The rooms are too hot and it was not hot there and the thermostat was down low, the balcony doors do not lock, probably no one will climb over from the next place but when you are leaving computer, camera's etc you should not have to even worry about that.
But as far as I am concerned still the best hotel to say in when in Port Hardy .. oh yes,l the staff at the front desk are very nice !

Room Tip: 3rd floor then no one on top of you and best view,

Like this hotel, very nice accomodations, had elevator. We stayed on third floor, all suites face the inlet where the crusie ships travel to Alaska and back to Vancouver during the summer months. Had a great view of seaplanes landing and taking off. Only dislike is we are non smokers and some guests were smoking on their balcony therefore the odours were wafted up onto our balcony. This is a non-smoking hotel which means some guests choose to ignore their bylaws.
Great food in their restaurants. Had steak and prawns which were terrific! Best grilled prawns I have had. Our breakfast was delicious!

Room Tip: no pool third floor was easy to reach via elevator. Restaurant was in hotel as well as there is a pu...

Very warm welcome and an extremely comfortable triple room with a balcony and great view over the harbour. Only reason to be in town was to catch the 7;30 ferry. Town a bit sad with a lot of closed shops. Hotel was great, as was the food and beer. If staying in Port Hardy, I'd recommend this hotel.

It was only thought as a sleeping spot after our late arrival with the ferry, but it deserves more attention.
It was spacious, clean and the bed was very clean. All balconies have a wonderful view to the small port. And you can see eagles and herons right in front of the room.

Like most travellers we stayed because we were taking the Inside Passage the following day, and it was perfectly adequate with helpful staff when the laundry did not work and we ran out of tea etc. I am not sure what the horrible bed covers are made of but they were very old fashioned and of a miserable texture but we enjoyed seeing the views of the port from our balcony. The room was clean and functional, and we ate in the very basic restaurant which has a very limited choice and very little in the way of ambience!

It appears that many of the guests who stay here do so solely because they are waiting for a ferry or have just come in on one late at night. As others have pointed out, there are not many options for these needed accommodations in Port Hardy. But the room was fine, not quite as expensive as the other motel next door, and the check-in was surprisingly swift despite a lot of folks coming off the ferry at the same time very late in the evening. It wasn't until daylight the next morning that we saw the panoramic view of the waterfront from the room. We were storing some food. So the refrigerator in the room was very helpful.

We did not have great expectations of the Glen Lyon Motel, but in fact it is surprisingly modern and spotlessly clean. Good quality cosmetics in the bathroom and a very friendly and helpful receptionist. Food was good and fresh tasting. Recommended.
