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. In the summertime, ship “decks” overflow with bountiful petunias.

Inside the Billy Barker Casino Hotel you can find a soon to be fully renovated restaurant and lounge, casino, liquor store 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.
