This was the second day of our driving and much shorter than the first due to the advice of our Milepost. We arrived shortly after 1:30pm to Dawson Creek where without delay we checked into our hotel, the Ramada Limited Dawson Creek. The friendly front desk clerk promptly advised us it was not a problem at all to check in early, recommend a local restaurant named Mr. Mike’s Grill where we could get a discount on our meals gave us our keys and sent us on our way.
Like the Super 8 in Williams Lake, this motel was nothing special as it had a clean king sized bed, one desk, a medium sized bathroom with a coffee maker and complimentary coffee. The one thing my husband and I both noticed, which we took an immediate dislike to, is the fact that whenever other occupants are taking a shower or bath, our water would turn burning hot or freezing cold in an instant. Otherwise, the bathroom was fine, though a bit antiquated.
At this stop, unlike the one at Williams Lake we were a bit more alert therefore we did hear more noise from other occupants. Since it was still late winter however we were in luck because there was only a few other rooms occupied one of which unfortunately was right above us. Why the front desk staff put someone right above us when there were plenty of other rooms available is beyond me. Other than hearing a bit from our neighbors upstairs the room was very quiet as we could not even hear the traffic passing by on Highway 97.
In the morning this hotel serves a nice complimentary breakfast off the lobby that includes toast, muffins, fruit salad, yogurt and cereal as well as both coffee and tea. The average price here seemed pretty reasonable as we paid CDN$80 however; just remember the time of year does make a difference on local prices so the best thing to do would be to check the Ramada website for current prices.
