Hotel is in desperate need of upgrades. All the old carpet needs to be pulled up. They have a nice little breakfast in the morning. Liwuor store connected to the hotel and a great little Italian restaurant there
The staff here are awesome!! They are very friendly, willing to help in answering questions or giving directions. The room was spacious with 2 queen beds. The fridge had a freezer compartment. There were actual coffee mugs and real glasses. The shower had good pressure.
This has to be the best standard transit hotel we have stopped at, came here 2 years ago, helpful staff, good clean room and bathroom with all the normal accessories. Comfortable queen bed, free Wi-Fi and parking on site, and to top it off, hot and cold buffet breakfast is included from 4.30 to 11.00am
We simply needed a place to stop for the night after a long drive. The Econo Lodge was perfect. The room was clean and comfortable. Complementary breakfast was typical, but met our need and expectations. Service from front desk was friendly and welcoming. Not the Ritz by any means, but just what we needed after a long drive.
This place offers good accommodation. We were only there one night but the hotel had everything we needed. One thing we noticed right away was the size of the room. We found it much larger than normal and that was nice. Another thing of note was the breakfast buffet which opened at 4:30 am! It offered a small cold and hot selections. Finally the hotel is right on the Alaska highway so easy to find and it has a grocery store almost directly across the road.
By no means I am no expert but we have stayed in few dozen Choice hotels in US. Econo Lodge in Fort St John is on par with best ones of this type. Slightly more fresh and clean, more spacious, the staff by no means more friendly and last but not least the breakfast served on real plates with real silver. Ok, it is the same powder eggs and tasteless sausages but served on real plate with coffee from real mug taste much better. We really enjoyed the stay.
We use Econolodge for all of our out of town corporate guests as well as drivers needing a layover. It is convenient to us for it's location and proximity to our shop. Very friendly staff, great management and i am told the restaurant is excellent. The corporate pricing is also an attractive benefit. Chris Richards Rosenau Transport ltd.
Room was great, staff very friendly. All I needed was a place to sleep blowing threw town and this seemed like the nicest place on the side of the Hwy. Vehicle was secure in the parking lot….. I would stay again for a short stay… Thx Complimentary breakfast was ready at 4:30,,perfect
Friendly staff, the place was clean, decent condition... showing a little wear. Good location. No elevator. Value was OK but not great. No exercise room. It was quiet . Free hot breakfast is available at 4:30 am... this is a big plus!
Spent 3 nights here working. Shower was good with lots of hot water, the towels are getting a tad threadbare. Beds and bedding comfortable and not like the towels, in fact I found the bed good as home. Parking no problem, I had some tools in the back of the truck that stayed there. Having the liquor/beer store on site is handy, also lots of free ice in hotel. The free hot breakfast is the standard fare, with scrambled eggs , spuds, cereal, etc. The pub attached has GOOD food. Try the blackened steak,one of the best I have had yet, restaurant or camp! Big flat screen tv, micro, fridge/freezer, great wifi and working alarm. Housekeeping needs work. Room was fine on check in, but not perfect. The bathroom ( most important ) was clean. BUT a complimentary candy on the floor by the other bed remained there for three days, a pebble in the traffic area between my bed and tv again there for three days, I don't eat Doritos but some chips were where I put my feet getting out of bed again for three days. One last thing I thought was kind of chincy was that after the coffee in the room on arrival was used it was not replaced. I have always believed that the last 10 percent of the job if done right leaves a satisfied customer willing to pay you to do another job for them. Maybe I just got here on a week when the vacuum was busted. I'll give them one more chance and I don't think you would go too far wrong staying here.
