Westie, I'm really topping this for you 'cause I don't have a clue, but I read some old 2002 postings which offered:

Port Hardy: don't stay at the Thunderbird but instead at the Quarterdeck (sounds pretty basic but clean).

Are you planning to visit Vancouver at all before doing the Inside Passage? If so, I could offer some suggestions.

I never go to Tsawwassen so can't help you there, and nothing came up on a quick net search.

Cheers,
Linda

In Tsawwassen try the Tsawwassen Inn. Just a few minutes from the ferry terminal and very nice. Not luxurious but well above average.

I DO NOT recommend the Town and Country Inn in Delta, the other nearby reasonably good hotel. I took a tour group out there last autumn and they goofed things up just about any way they could have - from rooms to restaurant reservations.

Hope this helps.

We ahve just returned from Canada. Try the Bay motor motel for good value in Bella Coola. Do not be tempted by the Tallheo Cannery as they let us down and left us stranded on the dock side at 10:30 pm.

Monteray - a couple of questions. What do you recommend doing in the Bella Coola area? Also, did you return via ferry or road? If the latter, any suggestions for place to sightsee or lodging?

In Port Hardy last week I used the Glenn Lyon Motel. Nice place. Our room was one of the higher priced ones, and it was spacious and had a good bed.
The place has an elevator.
It is fairly easy to find, but then, too, Port Hardy is not a large town.
