Ripley Creek Inn advertises itself as unique, spacious, quiet. It is all of those things. The rooms are spacious with lots of character.

Stewart is a small town. A very small town. So it's best not to arrive with big city expectations. Parts of staying here reminded me of staying at a cabin at the lake: mismatched china, older furniture. I lived in a building of this era when I went to university so it was a bit like a homecoming week for me.

Things you may need to know before you arrive: the rooms we had were dark, very dark. There was no hair dryer. There were no towel rails in the bathroom. We couldn't open the windows. Probably just as well because there were lots of mosquitoes about.

The free WIFI was fast and strong.

The cable TV was unwatchable.

The person in reception on check-in was friendly & helpful. The one on check-out was not.

Room Tip: This is northern BC with a big annual snow melt: if you don't like mosquitoes, you may want to p...

Ripley Creek is a hotel unlike any other I have experienced. It has added buildings and rooms over the years and is fascinating with numerous old pieces of machinery scattered around the grounds bringing its history alive. There is plenty of free parking close to the rooms. Check in was rapid and enjoyable with the charming receptionist giving us valuable local information. Our room was on the ground floor in one of the main buildings and it was large and very well furnished with a very comfortable bed, large table and wardrobe plus a refrigerator and microwave. The big TV had numerous channels available. There were doors opening to a private patio with table and chairs overlooking the mountains. Wifi was free and good. The bathroom was good with a powerful shower. We slept very well and really enjoyed our time in this unique excellent hotel.

Headed to Sterwart for a girls trip this past weekend and stayed at Ripley Creek Lodge. We had a lovely little room with lovely view of marsh and grasslands. The grounds of the hotel were very neat and had an old-timey feel.
We enjoyed a tea and treat at Toastworks a restaurant attached to hotel. They had some great tea selections and I wish we had tried some more of the menu.
Afterwards we drove up to the Salmon Glacier. It was a fair bit of a drive, with lots of wildlife, so pay attention. We saw a few bears, marmots? I think? As well as lots of birds and squirrel. The glacier was so beautiful well worth the drive!!!
We returned to the hotel and warmed up in the common room. The rooms have small fridges so we had taken advantage and brought a small cooler of food. We enjoyed some eats and some wine in front of the fire. It was lovely. The shops are nice with a good selection of souvenirs and local fare. Nothing was too outrageously priced. The following morning toastworks was closed so we had lunch at the King Edward. The food wasn't great, and I'd skip this establishment. After we ate we saw a few other places that looked more appealing.
We walked the boardwalks, there were lots of different plants and birds to see. The mountains are huge and truly impressive. The rugged beauty really does take your breath away. After our walk we stopped in at the the Glacier Pub in Hyder. The decor in pub is pretty neat with old money taped everywhere with peoples names and dates from all over the world. We didn't get hyderized ( a shot of moonshine) but there were a few people taking part, I kind of wish we had after we left. But maybe next time. This won't be my last visit. I will definitely stay at Ripley Creek at my next visit. We had such a great visit.

We stayed in Sept of 2016, didn't really know what to expect and was really surprised how nice this hotel/motel is!! We came to see the bears in Hyder, Ak but we were too late. We really enjoyed the area and our time at Ripley, Creek!! If you are looking for a hotel look no further. I would come again in a heart beat. The breakfast was great at the hotel .

We expected to good value for money hotel. We found it as expensive. Rooms are big but very old. No maintenance support and not very clean. It was cold at the room and no proper heating. Kitchen was ok and has oven , microwave and toaster. Good wifi connection and free parking.

It is our forth or fifth stay at Ripley Creek, rooms are large, clean and comfortable beds, most have great views.
No restaurant on site but is available nearby at the bakery or King Edwards Hotel.
A very relaxing place to stay.

Beautiful rooms in a quaint hotel. Unfortunately, the staff and management is not very cooperative. A one hour late checkout is not acceptable. A ride with heavy luggage to the airport four blocks away is unavailable. Regretfully, the nice rooms don't extend to a nice staff.
