“Hard to rate!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

If there were better options this place would get a lower rating, but it was fine, considering there were no other options!

We arrived late after a long days drive (I think it was around 8.30pm), the only restaurant in town had already closed, so all sad and hungry our hosts came to our rescue with incredibly large bowls of hot soup and crackers.

The Inn itself could do with a refurb, but it was clean and comfortable. The free Wi-Fi wasn't bad considering the number of guests in that night (I think they were full).

I wouldn't necessarily stay here again, but it was perfectly fine for a one off stay to break up a long drive.

Hi there!
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback.
We are happy you had a nice rest in our hotel and enjoyed the soup. Northway Motor inn has improved a lot in the past years, and many renovations are in project for the next future.
Yes, our WiFi is fast, considering the remote nature of Dease Lake.
We wish you all the best and we hope to see you again sometime in the future to show you the results of our renovations!

This little hotel in Dease Lake was a great find. The rates were good and the room was an excellent value. The front desk personnel were knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. The Soup they offered for a light meal was excellent, another nice surprise. I'd go back there without hesitation.

Room Tip: some rooms face a parking lot that gets a little noisy in the mornings, lots work crews in the area.

There are not a lot of stops on the Steward Cassiar Highway so there not a lot of options ? We split the trip from Prince George to Whitehorse at Dease Lake as it has the best choice of facilities . Northway is the best in town in our opinion , rooms are decent , service is good . I actually noticed that there was no air conditioning this time as it was sunny and calm but that is not likely to happen often .

Heads up for anyone travelling the Steward Cassiar this summer , there is only one restaurant in Dease Lake now and it is open 7 to 7 .. You don,t want to arrive after. 7 and hungry ..

Room Tip: We have stayed there 4 times in recent years and I believe all the rooms are similar . The only choi...

Hi Jim,
Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at Northway Motor Inn and for all the useful information that you have provided to the other travellers.
Yes , we do not have air conditioning, as the average temperature in July (the hottest month in Dease Lake) is 19.2°C . We provide fan in each room for the warm days.
Also, thank you very much to advice people to book in advance, as we fill up fast in summer.
We look forward to seeing you again here at the hotel on your next trip.
Many thanks
Kind Regards
The Management

I was on a bicycle trip to Alaska and Dease Lake offered little opportunity for camping. The staff at the Northway were very helpful and I had a nice room at an affordable price. They even did my laundry for me while I used the wifi to skype home. All the amenities, including free coffee in the morning. I highly recommend this motel if you're staying in Dease Lake. Could not get the satellite TV to work, but doubt they had control over that one. Dease Lake is a "limited" town.

Hotel was clean and the relief manager very helpful, the Hagwilget suspension bridge in Hazleton is amazing. Shame the pub was shut as was the restaurant, but the supermarket was nearby and microwave available.

Called the hotel while in smithers and the lady who I believe may be the owner was very helpful. Gave me information on where to stop for gas and food on the ride to dease lake. Upon arrival, the clerk allowed us to do laundry as well as provided utensils and plates for us to BBQ as there were no restaurants open. I found it to be a very refreshing experience in a very remote place. It exceeded my expectations and I would definitely recommend it as a safe, clean place to lay ur head!

It appeared as if the place recently got a new owner or manager that it trying really hard but slowly to spruce the place up. Staff was all very friendly and helpful when we were forced to make last minute travel date changes. The place is pet friendly.
