Clean rooms. Good water pressure. Comfortable beds First time in Canada and the friend I’m traveling with has stayed here numerous times. The bed was comfortable for a hotel, as you know they are usually hard. I would recommend them for both short and long term. Only down side is lack of restaurants.

Easy, convenient, clean and affordable Having stayed there before, I would have booked online but the Hotels.com and Booking.com had said that no rooms were available. I saw the "Vacancy" light outside. I took a chance and stopped there after a long difficult day of traveling north. The manager was gracious and very helpful. The room was clean, well equipped and a perfect place to rest.

A gem in the northern BC wilderness! My first time staying at Northway Motor Inn even though it was my 3rd trip to Dease Lake. This is a great place to stay out in the middle of nowhere. Due to it's location, don't expect all the comforts of home, but it did impress me what they are able to provide being so far from the rest of civilization. My room was clean, bed comfortable, building quiet, etc, etc. Allison, Dede & staff are all super friendly (like the rest of Dease Lake) and willing to help you out with anything! I couldn't get wi-fi calling to work on my phone (no cell service in Dease Lake), so Allison let me make the few calls I needed to make with the hotel land line phone since the phone in my room wasn't working (NorthwestTel problem). My recommendation to travelers through here would be to try & get a room with a kitchenette as dining options are near non-existent in Dease Lake. My dinner consisted of a frozen meal from the grocery store across the street that I heated up in the microwave in the hotel lobby. Breakfast the next morning was good for $12.99 at the grocery store deli. I will stay here again whenever my business brings me up to Dease Lake! ~Eric... Owner/Operator SPIRIT BEAR EXPRESS
Cool and comfy. Our first visit here. We found the motel clean and comfortable and they had a ice machine! We were grateful for the fan in the room as there was a heat wave in the area. Reasonable rates and lots of space. My only complaint was the excess of cigarette butts surrounding the ground by the entrance.
Would stay again Our room was clean, large and had a kitchenette. This came in handy since food options were limited on a Sunday night, so we got frozen meals at the grocery store across the street. The shower was especially nice, and I had what was probably my best night's sleep during a 22-night trip. The room was on the back side of the hotel and looked into a pretty fenced area with trees and wildflowers. It was interesting to wake up in the morning to a few inches of wet snow. Someone in the parking lot told us that snow in June isn't unknown, but most locals had never seen that much snow so late.

Great family run hotel Our vehicle broke down in Dease lake and we found Northway at 10pm, where Dede welcomed us and provided a room. Dede and her staff / other local folks were so kind, going above & beyond to help us get back on the road. This hotel was definitely the highlight of a difficult situation. They made us feel at home, provided coffee, the kitchenette was well stocked, rooms are very clean and comfortable.

Northway Motor Inn. Dease Lake Done the Alcan as an Alaskan born resident many times. First time doing the Cassiar. Hands down, Northway Motor Inn family run business was THE PLACE to stay no matter the hour of arrival! Dede was an exceptional hostess, regardless of the remote location of Dease Lake! A big bonus for us was the warm welcome for our 2 large dogs. Thank you Dede and Tim!

A friendly place with very clean room My wife and I stayed here twice travelling 'there and back' during our road trip. The room was clean and the kitchenette well stocked. TV and internet kept us entertained and in touch with family via internet along a remote winter highway. We definately will stay again.

Great place to stop We stopped here on our way to Whitehorse as it approximately the halfway point between Smither/Terrace and Whitehorse. It is very easy to find as there is very little in Dease Lake and has ample free car parking. There isn't a restaurant onsite but there is a small area where you can sit and eat your take out with plates and cutlery, you didn't want to take back to your room. There is also a BBQ available at the front of the property if you wanted to cook your own food. The rooms are large, clean and well appointed. We also stopped here a few days later on our return journey.

Meilleure établissement de notre voyage! Nous traversons actuellement les États-Unis et le Canada d’un océan à l’autre. Nous en sommes à la moitié de notre périple et nous n’avions jusqu’à maintenant rien connu de tel! Nous avons été superbement accueillis, la chambre est impeccable! Nous n’aurions pu espérer mieux! WoW!
