I booked this motel with the purpose of visiting Barkerville over a three day period. We should have allowed four! It was cheaper than the accommodation in or nearer Barkerville.
The Hubs was clean, basic but comfortable in a great location around 6-7 km, around 5-6 minutes drive from Barkerville.
There is a "fish and chips" outlet on-site if you want to make use of it. On the opposite side of the road you have the Bear Paw restaurant which serves superb cooked lunch and evening meals. I recommend eating at the Bear Paw restaurant.
We arrived late having driven all day from Dawson Creek. The woman looking after the office was really friendly with lots of helpful hints on what to see and where to go. The on-site office was small but adequate and there fresh-baked choc chip cookies every morning if you wanted them, a nice touch!
The room we had was clean and well equipped with a fridge, a large flat screen TV and DVD player, there were only two TV channels that could be obtained. However there were a huge stock of DVD's to borrow free of charge in the motel on-site office. There is a nice large gravel parking lot out the front where you can usually park you vehicle and if not a short distance away if someone has not parked their vehicle particularly well which we found on one of the three days we were there.
If you have the time its worth taking in a performance at the Wells Sunset theatre which is 10 minutes walk from the motel. To see what's being performed check out the following website: http://sunset-theatre.com/
