I think you are doing renovations currently as there were no baseboards in the hallway? Dining was ok, great bar staff, but I had diarrhea all day I left?? I had the tuna tower the night before? I recycle everything and do not buy or use do use plastic disposable items at home. Room was clean, and in a hotel I prefer plastic wrapped plastic… Read more
I think you are doing renovations currently as there were no baseboards in the hallway? Dining was ok, great bar staff, but I had diarrhea all day I left?? I had the tuna tower the night before? I recycle everything and do not buy or use do use plastic disposable items at home. Room was clean, and in a hotel I prefer plastic wrapped plastic cups in my room, only because I have watched to many W5 shows where house keeping just washes them out and puts back for the next person. I did not see any clean glasses on the housekeeping carts or any empty dishwasher trays indicating there ever were any? Are they changed and put through the dish washer after each guest?

It just felt like a typical highway motel. The room was nice enough, and the check in was easy. The food at the restaurant was not anything special, just average for a hotel like this one. The location is a bit off the main part of town, so it took 20 minutes to walk to main street in Smithers.

The Prestige is located on the eastern entrance to Smithers but we found it an easy walk from the motel to the downtown with restaurants and bars. There were some nice, safe neighborhoods nearby for walks too. The motel is newer and the room was comfortable, had good lighting and was roomy. It was also quiet.

There were some nice, safe neighborhoods nearby for walks too. The motel is newer and the room was comfortable, had good lighting and was roomy. It was also quiet. We had breakfast (not included but very good) in the motel daily and ate one dinner there. They also have a nice bar with food so it is full service. The staff members were always helpful and friendly. Read less

Stayed in the 1 bedroom kitchen suite which was very nice. the front desk was very courteous. The cleaning staff was terrible at best, they took 5 minutes to change the bathroom toiletries, towels & sort of threw the bed back together every day except Sunday.

Stayed in the 1 bedroom kitchen suite which was very nice. the front desk was very courteous. The cleaning staff was terrible at best, they took 5 minutes to change the bathroom toiletries, towels & sort of threw the bed back together every day except Sunday. We ended up buying our own dishwashing detergent and had to go to the desk every day to get coffee On Sunday estopped by the front desk at around noon and the confirmed the room would be made up, when we returned nothing had been done. I mentioned this at checkout & also sent an email to the manager but got no response. This is the first time we tried the hotel since the upgrade and will probably be the last as value is very poor. I recommend the Sunshine Inn unless you need at Kitcheners unit Read less
