Thank goodness these older motels are still around and being maintained and priced so reasonably. We stayed here for just one night of a 2 night road trip. Clean and reasonably priced. Comfortable clean bed and with small fridge and microwave. Room was crowded because there were 2 beds in the room but that was OK. Some construction workers that...

This hotel is right on the main road through Creston BC. The rooms were clean and comfortable and reasonably priced, they had a nice warm swimming pool to relax in after our day on the bike. Our onsite manager Terry had a fire pit going in the back yard of the property as evening grew dark and we visited with...

We stayed here for two nights in August during a bike trip and we really enjoyed it. Nice, clean swimming pool, complete with toys. The room was clean and comfortable. BEST shower I've ever had, and we've stayed in a lot of rooms in the past three years. The staff we encountered were friendly and helpful as well. Chairs outside...

Clean, good wifi, clean pool, close to highway and good access to town. We enjoyed our dinner at the Kootenay Thai restaurant in town. Good reception on the TV. Handy to park right outside your hotel room door for easy loading and unloading. A little outdated and certainly not luxurious but everything a traveling family needs.

The backyard was gorgeous, we were welcomed to pick from the plum trees and their was a great play area for the kids. The outdoor pool was lots of fun, very warm and equipped...

It doesn't look like much from the front....but the suites are terrific, nice beds......and what a playground area in the back. Kids will absolutely love it. And older 'kids' as well, with the barbeques and the opportunity for a contained campfire. Owners very friendly and 'real'.

Very clean, very quiet and comfortable. Our room (225) had a queenbed, pullout couch and a cot in the main, with a separate bedroom with queen bed. Large full bathroom, mini fridge, microwave, coffee, full cable and easy fast wifi. The a/c was quiet and efficient and despite being near the highway it was silent and a great sleep. Beds...
