First off, other hotels in Port Hardy were booked solid. It was late and we were tired. In between a rock & a hard place! When we walked into the room we did wonder if sleeping in the car was a better option. The room was very old, desperately needing updating & judging from the rickety stairs might even need to be demolished. The bedspreads had seen a better day and who knows when they were last washed. I ripped the sheets down to the mattress to check for bedbug evidence but saw none so it had that going for it. However the pubic hair in the bath tub and the worn man's underwear in the closet was not evidence of a thorough cleaning. Would not recommend.

I came in late last night on the ferry from Prince Rupert. It was raining and i got lost ... i will blame Google as it was actually easy to find and close to the centre of town, a couple of km. The fellow who checked me in was really pleasant and helpful, especially given the time it was almost 1:00pm

The room was decent, it is a budget motel, but it was clean, quiet and I slept well.

It perfectly met my needs for the night.

Thank you

Very clean and basic rooms. Friendly. No wifi in room (28), good wifi at front desk; missed business arrangement as a result. No restaurant at the inn, but amazing food at next door restaurant SUSHI HARDY. Photos on website of Pioneer Inn are misleading, but room rate is cheap. Pet friendly.

I booked two rooms by phone and asked for confirmation by email. I was told they don't do email confirmations. When we got off the ferry at 11:30 pm we headed straight to the motel. The man at the desk looked for our reservation and after 15 minutes of a back and forth conversation through his google translate, he told me to move aside. When I asked what he would do for us he turned away to help other people standing in line. One other couple also had made reservations by phone and was told that they had no reservation. By 12:15 am we discovered that there were no hotel rooms available anywhere. Through the kindness of strangers we got accomodations for a few hours of sleep.

Quiet , clean 2 room unit. We slept well on the hide-a-bed. The general manager was friendly, there was coffee in the lobby, a freezer for fish, a full kitchen including a microwave in family room. They had room in back if we needed for boat and trailer. For five people it was a good choice. The outside is old but our room was more than adequate. We were we would again.

The motel looks a little tired from the outside but we had no real complaints. The rooms were clean and the bed very comfortable. The location is so quiet that we slept really well. The Inn is in a beautiful spot a shirt drive from Port Hardy and there's a lovely walk down to the river through the Quatse Salmon Centre just opposite. We enjoyed our stay very much, our only disappointment was the lack of kettle, just a fridge, microwave and coffee pot in our room.

The hotel was of reasonable quality given the price. This is in comparison to other hotels in the area that I looked at. There is a river close by that is nice to hear when you leave your room.

I also spotted 6-7 bald eagles hanging out in a tree above the river by the hotel. It was really cool if you're into that sort of thing :)

The Pioneer is located right on the river a couple km south of Port Hardy. A beautiful loop trail that goes all the way into town leaves from the Inn & follow the river to the estuary & on into town. The room has everything that's needed & is more spacious than more modern rooms. Great value. Quiet place suitable for couples, family or business travelers.

The room was clean, comfortable, and roomy. The bathroom was nicely updated.
The staff was friendly and helpful.
An easy 10 minute drive to the ferry terminal.
There were delicious cookies at the front desk upon check in which was a pleasant surprise.
I would recommend the Pioneer Inn.

Stay away!

One big nightmare. Open the room means to awake the rodents and seeing them running through the room. the room was dirty, the fridge didn't smell, but stink after rotten fish, staff was rude and impolite.

Moved to another hotel.
