“The only option”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

Comfortable, clean and friendly. There's not much in very small town where the gas station, supermarket and only 'restaurant' in town are in the same building. There's a food track which sells mail y fried foods but if you're looking for a healthier option the supermarket has good quality fresh food. We were able to buy steaks and vegetables in the supermarket and put together a nice meal on the BBQ provided by the hotel.The managers were extremely helpful in particular with giving us crockery, cutlery and utensils to use on the on site BBQ. They were also very helpful on information about the area. Great place to stay.

Nice place to live, the room don't have a microwave but they have fridge that is a good part. You might hear disturbance from the corridor so try to find a room away from the disturbance. Wi-fi is a bit slow so plan accordingly

Room Tip: Choose rooms away from the corridor so you can be away from the noise

Hi !
Thank you for taking the time to write this review.
Yes, every room has a fridge. Also, we have kitchenettes with microwaves if requested.
Our hotel usually is very quiet and the WiFi is fast.
You might have stayed with us in a full house day. In this case, if every guest connects at the same time, the internet may slow down.
We hope to seeing you again sometime in the future, maybe in a quieter day.
Many Thanks

This motel surprised us for its remote location. This motel is older but was clean and the staff friendly. We got to Dease Lake later in the day and there were no restaurants open. We were told we could get something from the grocery store that was closing in 10 minutes or go to the food truck which sells french fries, fish and chicken, located just beside the motel. We went there quickly and were satisfied with the food options. The girl at the food truck was pleasant and said her hours were from 6 am to 9 pm. There is coffee in the room so if you need coffee in the morning you have that. If I were to travel on this highway in the future I would stay at this motel again.

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.

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.

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

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.
