About the Hotel

The Billy Barker Casino Hotel is a landmark in downtown Quesnel. It was designed after the historical river paddle-wheelers that traveled the Fraser River during the gold rush of the late 1800’s, complete with a statue of Billy Barker himself atop.

The paddle wheelers, were the fastest form of transportation for both people and cargo in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These steam driven workhorses chugged their way up the Fraser River on a regular basis delivering much-needed supplies to residents of the BC interior.

The Billy Barker Casino Hotel pays tribute to these stately steamers in its exterior paddle wheel design. The corner of McLean Street and Barlow Avenue is now the location of the last remaining paddle wheeler on the upper Fraser river. In the summertime, our ship “decks” overflow with bountiful petunias.

Inside the Billy Barker Casino Hotel you will find a fully renovated restaurant and lounge, casino, and an upscale banquet room which can hold up to 130 people. Hotel rooms have been refurbished, each with its own unique historical style. The atmosphere of the hotel is charming and nostalgic, with a good dose of down-to-earth friendliness and delicious home cooking. It is a popular stop for both locals and tourists alike. The casino features 134 slot machines, electronic Roulette and weekend table games. Experience the gold rush era as you relax, play or just enjoy your stay at Billy Barker Casino Hotel.

Guest Comments

I stayed at the hotel about a year ago and my boyfriend and I still talk about how it was the best sleep of our lives. Such a great environment and the heated bathroom floors were so nice. A great experience all around.

The Billy is 5 star treatment for reasonable prices. Great rooms, sparkling clean & beautiful, friendly, helpful staff and lots of big fluffy winter white towels and a robe. 😉 My favorite place to stay in Quesnel!
