Reviewed 16 September 2016 via mobile

Dated. Room smelled musty if windows closed. Kitchenette very basic, with old single burner hot plate and microwave. Fridge was dripping water, sink slowly drains. Bathroom hook installed upside down, so towel/clothes fall off. For added enjoyment spiders and cobwebs. On the positive - friendly staff, fresh towels and beds made daily.

Hello. Thank you for staying with us. I apologize about the inconvience. We bought this place recently and still renovating. We are slowly trying to get rid of that musty smell by changing the carpet and renovating. The fridge was dripping water because the door was not close well. We change the fridge and fix the sink. Sorry about the...

This motel is located close to two decent restaurants and is quiet, clean and affordable. Ask for a room in back away from the main road. The bed was decent, the shower and bathroom adequate. Certainly fine for a stop for one night or two, but no more.

We stayed here Monday to Saturday with a tour group. Room 118 was OK, but in addition to the partial bathroom reno, the kitchen is due for an update — all of it! The new, small flat screen TV is plenty good enough; most people don't go to Haida Gwaii to watch TV. What also needs updating are all the...

We visited Haida Gwaii to celebrate our anniversary. We received a tip to ask for a harbour view room, which we did. It had a cute lttle balcony overlooking the gorgeous scenery. The room was perfectly adequate with all amenities and clean too. We especially enjoyed the boxes of flowers everywhere; the scent of sweet peas was lovely. Also included...

We stayed at the Sea Raven for our last night on Haida Gwaii, we wanted a good night's rest before our ferry back to the mainland. The motel delivered. We had the family room, 1 double bed, and 2 singles. It was nice and spacious. Most of all, it was clean. The sheets were fresh, the bathroom was nicely cleaned,...

We stayed here for 5 nights while visiting Haida Gwaii. It was a lovely respite from our busy schedule! We asked for an 'ocean view' room.....it was great, overlooking the sea from a very nice balcony. The room itself was well equipped with a small fridge and microwave. It was clean and user friendly.

We stayed here before taking the ferry out the next day. The room smelled unpleasant and it was very dated, but it was clean enough. There were noisy guests (workers) on either side of us and much swearing could be heard. We stayed elsewhere four days previously and that was a much nicer place. Keep looking.
