This is a beautiful older style motel, with views facing tall mountains and the sound of the nearby river. It was clean, well appointed with fabulous water pressure in the showers, and a comfortable bath.

We had to get some help checking in because Fran, who runs it, had some stuff to deal with that day and our phone was not getting a signal. No problem! Chris, at Copper Sun Gallery just called her up while we browsed the artwork, and it was all sorted. Remember, these are real people in a real community - so if you have any issues just persevere with kindness and patience and you will be rewarded with the same if you need it (like we did, but that is another story!)

We needed an extra key so our party could split up and do our own thing - no problem - they had one cut especially! The person who was servicing rooms told us about the grizzly in the neighborhood, which was nice, and made us feel part of things. Everyone we met staying there was wonderful, this place attracts a special kind of traveller. I wanted to stay the winter, and was jealous of one person who was doing just that. I cannot wait to bring my elderly parents and friends to this wonderful place.

Thank you so much from the girls with the rented jeep who didn't read ferry schedules properly. Til next time...!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Bella Coola Motel. The suite had everything I needed and was quiet and immaculately clean. The place is centrally located within walking distance of many things. And the owner was wonderful.

The room was clean. Loved having a kitchen. The bed was comfortable. The Wi-Fi was really fast. The motel is walking distance to the grocery, hardware and liquor stores. Will stay there again if in town.

Beautiful, clean and modern. However, the finer details of customer service, management availability for check-in/check out procedures are somewhat lacking here. You will most likely need a cell phone to check-in or contact anyone for assistance as there are no telephones provided in the room. The beds are back breaking soft (stayed in suites #7 & #2, same issue) - the only thing that would prevent me from staying here again. It has a full kitchen and most of the dishes and utensils needed; there are only 2 restaurants in town so this is a good perk. I would probably stay here again despite the uncomfortable beds and lack of available staff for check-in.

Stayed at the motel the night before catching the ferry. Its clean, comfortable, very well equipped and the owner is friendly and welcoming. Good value motel right on the edge of town, walking distance to the only restaurant serving dinner in the valley! Great little place to stay.
