The kindness and hospitality of the family that runs this inn makes the experience! The inn itself is basic, which we were more than okay with as we weren't there for the accommodations. It's centrally located to restaurants and shops on the Main Street. Our flight out of Churchill was cancelled and rebooked numerous times due to weather, they were... More

Failed tio make scheduled airport pick up Room extraordinarily small--could only get into double bed from one side. Inadequate towels in bathroom; maid failed to clean room when scheduled Manager put dirt on icy spots only after they had melted. Try some place else.

Stayed here three nights during bear season in 2016. Picked up at the airport (had to look around to find the person, who wasn't actively looking for me) and returned to the airport (transfers were free), the room is smallish, the beds were comfortable, it was warm (most important!) with a controllable thermostat in the room (electric baseboard heating). Slept... More

Bear Country Inn is a very basic accommodation, probably more like a B & B. They picked us up at the airport and were friendly upon arrival. John Sr is an interesting person and I had a really good chat with him about the area. The rooms are very plain and each seems to have two single beds. One day,... More

When you're in Churchill you should be out exploring and not hold up in your hotel. This is a basic motel but should fill your needs. The rooms are warm, clean, and comfortable. Everyone is friendly and breakfast is more than adequate. If you have the time have John Sr. take you on a tour, very informative.

stayed here for 3 nights. Room is warm and comfortable enough with breakfast included. People there and the owner are very friendly. In Churchill you can't expect anything like in big cities. once your room is warm, water is hot. That's alright.

I was supposed to stay at the Churchill Motel,but as a result of a mess-up by my tour (Rail Travel Tours, don't go there...) I ended up at the Bear country Inn, next door and owned by the same person. I realise this is Churchill and one must make allowances - lots of them - but this place is basically... More

This is a very basic hotel/ motel type place but you are in Churchill so should not be spending much time in the room. They are still doing repairs from a flood last year and the amenities, hallways, etc are WIP and is stages of repair. Room was good, comfortable beds, heat and a small fridge. TV picture was terrible,... More

The whole place is very basic and has suffered from a major leak/flood. The airport pick up was a bit shambolic. Room was clean, water hot, the bed was old though and the mattress sagged badly in the middle. Breakfast was basic continental. What you might expect from a place run by a couple of builders. Remember you are there... More

I booked this hotel the day before we arrived in Churchill and during bear season, we were very lucky to even get a room. The owner is friendly and will pickup and drop you off at the airport at no charge. There is free wifi which worked pretty good. A little disorganized but for one night it was good enough.... More
