Prince George does not have any hotels that are really close the airport, and surprisingly all the hotels are about a 15 to 20 minute drive away. Some are downtown and have stores and restaurants nearby and some are located a few minutes from the city centre. Online reviewers have complained about some areas of town which seemed a little unsafe to them, actually citing prostitutes and pan-handlers near the hotels. I eliminated all the hotels that had mediocre ratings or were situated in the more seedy area of town. Good hotels do not come cheap in Prince George, but there are some highly-rated hotels that guests thought offered good value.

Highly-rated (8.6/10) and ranked # 1 out of 12 hotels in town, it's actually priced cheaper by comparison than Four Points and offers free Wi-Fi and parking. It is right downtown and Google maps it at 16 minutes to the airport (airport shuttle is available for $12/adult if booked ahead). I like the looks of the area from Google maps and it is close to other downtown restaurants, shopping and theatre. People seemed to like the food on-site, the rooms, the pool and staff, although some thought the decor was dated.
