“Wonderful Little Motel”
Reviewed 25 June 2009

My university offered a 1-week condensed History course in Barkerville, so I stayed in the Hubs Motel because my sister recommended it. It was probably the best motel/hotel experience that I've had. The room (which I shared with a fellow student to reduce expenses) had a small bedroom with queen-size beds, a main sitting area with futon adjoined to a kitchen area with counters, full size fridge, stove, and sink along with various other appliances.
The rooms were well-kept daily, but what really made this stay stand out was the lady running the place, Diane. She was always amazing - very pleasant, told us to just ask if we needed anything, and even brought us cookies!
The only downside was that there was not a microwave, but I'm not sure if that is standard in motel kitchenettes or not. Otherwise it had all of the standard amenities - soap and shampoo, shoe shine, coffee, make-up remover pads, as well as wireless internet if you have a laptop.
Wells is a lovely little town - if you stop in any of the businesses more than once, someone is bound to remember you with a friendly greeting. Barkerville is likewise a worthwhile historical site to visit.
Overall, I had an amazing time and would recommend this motel to anyone wanting a comfortable, personable, and well-priced stay in the Wells area.

Had a chance to stay at the Hubs Motel on our road trip last year. I understand they recently came under new ownship, so lots of improvements. Rooms were spotless, beds were comfortable, and the price was right.

If you're in the area, definitly check out the Bowron Lakes... just stunning. A day at Barkerville is a great time too, they put on some very entertaining shows... and if time allows, Wells is a charming little town to explore.
