Located in Miramichi's city centre on the Miramichi River, the Rodd Miramichi River is popular with business and leisure travellers who require a centrally-located and pet-friendly hotel with an on-site restaurant and easy highway access.

This non-smoking hotel has 84 air-conditioned guest rooms and suites, each offering satellite TV, free Wi-Fi, a mini-fridge, a coffeemaker, a desk, a hair dryer, and an iron and ironing board. Standard rooms offer one king or two queen beds, while king suites provide a separate bedroom, a living area with a sofabed, two TVs, a desk, a jetted tub, a microwave, a bar sink, and a bathrobe for each guest.

On-site dining is available at The Angler's Reel Restaurant & Bar, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Other nearby restaurants include Cunard Restaurant and O'Donaghue's Irish Pub & Eatery, which can both be found within a 3-minute walk south of the hotel.
